Featured // HGTV!

Finally, I can share! Over a month ago now, HGTV contacted me to share some of my photos from the Color-Blocked Neon Rope Basket that I was featured on Design*Sponge. We talked back and forth, and HGTV wanted more ideas on how to incorporate neon into home decor. It is the trend of the season! ;) 

I wanted to make the most of the opportunity, so I brainstormed a bunch of ideas and asked a good friend of mine, Kate from Portland Flea, to see if I could do a little photo shoot at her house. We had a blast and I think the photos came out really well! 

In the end, the "feature" was three photos included in a article entitled "20+Ways to Decorate Your Home with Neon", but I'm more than thrilled to have been a part of the process and I learned loads throughout this process. The article consists of 21 different ideas and photos, scroll through the slide show and you can find my three photos that I contributed. 

Here's a few of the photos that didn't make it and a little more about the process. 

I knew that I wanted to make something for this photo shoot, so I got to work at piecing together a little pillow. I chose a vibrant neon pink and some neutrals. and pieced together an improvisational log cabin block. The vase was a last minute idea. I had bought some knee highs from Target and I loved the look of them. I wanted to include them but at first I couldn't figure how... finally I tried out putting the sock on a vase and I loved the look! Cut off the foot of the sock, and viola! 

 

Finally, here is a bigger shot of the dining room table set-up. This was my favorite part. I loved making the table decorations and setting the table. It made me what have dinner parties! Now if only I could get the cooking part down... ;)

Easter Craft Round Up

Throughout this past week, I've been seeing so many great Easter projects that today I thought I'd round up some of my favorites. It's fun to see a new spin on traditional crafts. In the past, I usually dye a few eggs and pick up some pretty flowers to arrange. This easter I'm crafting more because of all the inspiration around me. Do you craft at Easter? What do you normally make? Which project is inspiring you the most?
