Bedroom Makeover

Refreshed and Revamped
Great words to use for the new year. 

I took a needed break from the store so I could be refreshed and revamped to be more productive this year. I feel very behind but once I get back in the groove it will be creativity city around here.

I started at home to help boost my mood.
I don't know about you but the grey days are too much when you live in a place that celebrates the winter season. This is the time of year when everything looks dull.

I needed a quick fix!

I started in my bedroom. I have a monochromatic look. Too much beige!
I really don't have the time for a complete bedroom makeover. So with a trip to Old Time Pottery and a focus on color and texture, I created a mini makeover by revamping and refreshing an old tired bedroom! It took only 15 minutes.

This can also be called makeover on a budget. Although I rarely buy bed sets in a bag, it was great for this quick fix. I got lucky and found this set during the Old Time Pottery white sale.
Now I have a look that is Revamped and Refreshed for under $50.

Working with textures makes things look richer. This set had 6 pieces. I used the patterns and textures of the pillows and built a pallet. Coordinating some of the hues and placing the colors around the room, made this all come together. 

I am sharing this before and after makeover at the Old Time Pottery Blog! You won't believe the difference! I hope you head over and tell me what you think.

A Year in Review

Well, another year has come and gone. Could this be real? It is amazing to me how the time goes so much faster the older you get.
This is A Year in Review her at Dreamingincolor. There were so many wonderful things that I didn't get a chance to write about here on my blog.

This is the top ten posts that you viewed the most!
A Year in Review of the popular things you read about. 
I do wish I had wrote more about the beautiful things that were created for the store but I realized that having a store that I have opened and operated by myself has turned into something that has occupied most of my time. With that said, I am thrilled to have written some to share with you.

I will start with number 10!!

Holiday Open House

I have been meaning to share some highlights of our Holiday Open House here at Dreamingincolor. You see it was not just any holiday open house, we were also celebrating our first year in business!!
This year was so wonderful! Thanks to everyone that came out and supported us.

Despite many obstacles, like my husband needing emergency surgery, I managed to get everything decorated for the holiday.  This year's, like last year's date, fell on Oaklands Museum Candlelight tour so our hours were 10am-8pm so the touring could extend to our house.

Our main area of the house was decorated elegantly with silver, turquoise, white and red.
The majestic deer adorned with glass beads became the center of attention. Though not for sale, people sure did try to buy them! Our tree had the most adorable vintage skates, mercury, french and turquoise ornaments.

King's Chapel Parade of Homes

 I had the opportunity to tour the King's Chapel Parade of Homes in Arrington, Tennessee last week at an event hosted by Forest Home Media. Several bloggers were invited for a tour and high tea to promote the event.
King's Chapel Parade of Homes is full of gorgeous homes decorated with Christmas charm.
All to benefit the Make-a-Wish Foundation of Middle Tennessee. The event starts December 6, 2014- December 21, 2014. Tickets are $12, twelve and under are free. This is an event not to miss.

King's Chapel is a community built with 350 acres of dedicated green space.

I have to admit, I was in heaven. 

There were so many vignettes, holiday ideas, and designer influences all over the beautifully constructed homes by Drees Home Builders, Greg & Rains, Arnold Homes and Tennessee Valley Homes..

Each one had their own designs and personal touches. Each one had something that stood out.
It was sensory overload for this creative soul. You just have to see for yourself. Note: pictures do not do it justice.

So sit back because you are in for a treat. 

This was one of my favorite homes. Layered with fresh greens inside and out. This home was built by Drees Home Builders.

How to make Santa Legs

I am so excited about this project!
It was so much fun to do.

The holidays are quickly approaching and the decorating begins! I have worked on getting the tree trimmed and now I am concentrating on something special. Since children of all ages enjoy the magic of Santa Claus. I thought it would be fun to create a project with him in mind.

Once again I headed to Old Time Pottery for all the supplies.

Then my mind went crazy. 

I love it because you can do so much with this idea. Makes a great centerpiece for a table too. For all the instructions on how to make these head on over to Old Time Pottery!

It is an easy project to add some Christmas fun to your home. The kids will love it too.

HO! Ho! HO!
