  • How to Style Holiday Table Decorations

    This post is sponsored by Walmart. As always, all opinions are our own. Can you even believe that the holidays are here?! To celebrate the season and take advantage of this beautiful Phoenix weather, I am hosting a holiday dinner party in my backyard! We renovated the entire backyard last year and I have been looking forward to entertaining in this space ever since! To set the ambiance, I hung sheets of lights all around my patio.

  • How to store holiday decorations

    Christmas is just days away and sooner than later, it’s going to be time to take down Christmas decorations. Today I’m going to show you how I store holiday decorations.  This post is sponsored by At Home. All ideas and opinions are my own, always. We have family coming into town for Christmas (which we weren’t planning on so I am SO excited to have guests!) Since we have a lot more people coming than I had planned, the room will feel a bit cramped so I am going to rearrange the space a little bit to allow for more people and more gifts! Yay! This Christmas season, I removed one of my grey sofas and added our blue chairs into my living space so it felt more open and we could admire the trees. Now, with guests coming, we’re definitely going to need more seating so I need to bring the sofa back in. This made the room feel like too much “stuff” when I think about people and presents being added to the room.  I decided to move…

  • Modern Ranch Reno: Living Room Holiday Refresh

    I am a Brand Ambassadör for IKEA U.S. This is a sponsored post. We have decked the halls over at our house and it is already for the guest arrive. Getting ready for guest can be such a challenge. I have family coming in from out of town and because my house is so central to our families we usually host a few parties at our house during this busy holiday season. Before I was ready for the guest to arrive I really wanted to finish a few spaces in my house. I was also on the lookout for some beautiful living room chairs. I headed off to IKEA to get a few finishing touches to complete my family room to start. I fell head over heels in love with this STRANDMON Wing chair in Djuparp dark green. I knew adding a pair of these chairs to this space would totally complete the look I was going for in my family room. I love it whenever we are having guest over because it pushes me to get everything finished and looking…

  • FULL REVEAL: #MallorysClassicColonial Laundry Room!

    This post is sponsored by BEHR Paint Company. As always, all opinions are our own. We always say that paint is one of the easiest ways to transform a room. And it is! But it still requires thinking of an idea, going to the store, choosing paint samples, testing them at home, and then going back to the store once you’ve made your decision. That’s a lot of work! For my laundry room makeover, we took a whole different approach thanks to BEHR® Express! I started by checking out all of their color options online. They have a curated palette of 55 can’t go wrong colors to choose from and a super handy quiz to help you narrow down your color choices based on the room and style. Once you choose your color options, they send over peel & stick paint samples! No painting required! I just stuck them up on my wall to make sure the color was exactly what I envisioned! I’m hooked and never going back! TIP: Paint can look very different depending on the space and lighting in…

  • What is Flood Irrigation? | Flood Irrigation in Phoenix

    A few weeks ago during #CCProjectDay, we had to rush back to my (Mallory’s) house to turn off the water in backyard because I was irrigating it! We live in sunny Phoenix, AZ and in the desert it is common to water our yards this way as shocking as it is! In today’s post, I gathered allll of your questions about flood irrigation, why we do it, and how it benefits our yard! Before we dive in, I am not a flood irrigation expert but our water delivery company, SRP, is! Feel free to find more info on their blog! What is flood irrigation? Irrigation is just watering your yard. We are talking about FLOOD irrigation which is where we intentionally flood our yard instead of watering it each day. How often do you do it? Every week or every other week! Really just depends. Why do you use flood irrigation? We live in the desert so our plants don’t get a ton of water! If you think about the natural climate, desert plants survive months without water and then…
