  • Article Sven Sofa Review | Our Honest Opinion (and styling tips!)

    After our kitchen remodel, we decided that it would function best for our layout to have the family room right off the kitchen. I have a family of 6 which means we needed to pack in lots of seating into this space! This room needed a very specific shaped sofa and I found exactly what I was looking for in the Article Sven Sofa! Here is a detailed look at how I styled my Sven Left Sectional from Article!…

  • Mallory’s Classic Colonial Kitchen: Renovation Selections

    This post is sponsored by Elkay. As always, all opinions are our own. I’m in the middle of this kitchen renovation and I feel like I am going a little bit crazy! With the holidays and all of the construction it can be so chaotic and busy. Not to mention, I am doing the baseboards and trim work myself, which is just a tad bit time consuming haha!

Now that we have finalized so many of the details, I’m ready to share what we have chosen for #MallorysClassicColonial! Sink The sink was one of the first things I picked out for my kitchen.

  • Samsung The Frame TV Review

    The Samsung 55” Class The Frame QLED Smart 4k UHD TV Our Samsung Frame TV Review: If you want to elevate your living room design, mount your TV! Keeping walls and surfaces clear helps your space appear neat and tidy. In the past, I embraced the eyesore that are cords!! Chargers and long cords have taken over – they are everywhere and can interrupt a beautiful room redesign. The worst offender is the living room with the TV, gaming consoles, routers, etc. There were cords coming out of every direction and it was getting harder and harder to hide them. Enter: Samsung Frame TV What is the Frame TV? I can honestly say this TV is the answer to my prayers! The Frame TV is exactly what it sounds like – a completely functional and top of the line television while it is on, and when you turn it off, it is a stunning frame that features beautiful art! Let’s be real – I bought it because it’s beautiful. I don’t really care about all of the technical specs of…

  • Mallory’s Classic Colonial: Living Room Details!

    My kitchen is currently being put back together after months of being torn apart. If you haven’t heard, we actually moved the location of our kitchen form one room to another. Well, my living room is right in the middle of that and because of the new layout, the furniture we had didn’t exactly match the floor plan. Here is what we have so far and I cannot wait for you to see! Paint Colors We are keeping with the black and white color scheme through the living room. The white we are using throughout our house is BEHR Frost. The black we used is Rust-oleum Chalked in the color “Charcoal” nuLOOM Amerie Vintage Medallion Area Rug This was a super exciting Etsy find! You can find it here! Wayfair Charlie Sectional This couch is even better in-person! It can be tricky to order sofas online but I highly recommend this one! Ottoman Armchairs Leopard Pillows Ceiling fan I will keep this post updated as we add new items to the room. Thank you for coming along this journey with…

  • Coastal Bedroom Makeover

    This post is sponsored by Walmart. As always, all opinions are our own. Since moving into our new house, our youngest son’s room has been lacking the attention it deserved. I have been anxious to give his room a full makeover. I wanted to create a space that reflects his personality but will also grow with him as he gets older. These toddler years don’t last nearly long enough! Coastal / Beach Decor Bedroom Ideas Coastal decor is beach decor. A common misconception is that Coastal Style means nautical. Anchors and rope, nope. While those things certainly work, Coastal Style is so much more. It typically features earth tones, a variety of blue tones, usually jute and rope textures and that’s exactly what I wanted. We hoped to create a summer by the lake vibe and included a few animals to keep it feeling appropriate for a toddler but also a space that he can grow into. I love that we were able to create a cool, crisp, beachy feel while keeping it age appropriate. I am loving all of the coastal…

  • Modern Ranch House: Adventure Room Sources

    I just finished my little boys room and it really did turn out so cute. I wanted to do a full post for you of all the sources of everything I used in the room. Paint The biggest change in this room is the wall color. You can read all about the details about the paint colors in this blog post HERE. Furniture Bed– I found the bunk bed on Walmart! I love that they are stackable and I love that the bottom bunk is a queen and the top bunk is a twin. You can find it HERE. Sofa– I actually got this sofa from Mallory. She got it from American Furniture Warehouse. The navy one is no longer available but here’s similar one. Dresser– This tone of dresser is perfect for this room. I was not wanting to spend a lot on the dresser and I found this one from Living Spaces and for it being under $200 it works just fine. But just so you know It’s not on metal tracks its on wood tracks so its…

  • Household Closet Organization and Labels

    I can’t even tell you how many times a day I get asked for things. It usually go something like this, “Have you seen my dance shoes?” ” Have you seen my backpack?” “Do we have any Band-Aids?” “Do you know where the batteries are?” Can you relate?? If you can then I want to share one thing that has helped with so many of those questions. It’s getting organized and labeling EVERYTHING!! My Household closet BEFORE: Step 1: Clear everything out Here is the AFTER: We used black vinyl and a Silhouette Machine to cut out these cute random dots so that we could add a bit of character to this closet. It was really easy to apply and was really quick. If you don’t have a vinyl cutter machine you can use scissors and cut your own dots. Label all the things! It makes it so much easier for everyone if everything has a home and everything is labeled. We have made this even easier for you to create your household closet or cabinet by making a set…

  • Mallory’s Classic Colonial: Dining Room Makeover

    I’m so excited to be sharing some actual progress with you guys on the house. This dining room is literally visible from most areas of our house and was a little bit of a challenge for me to make sure that all walkways are clear, the furniture felt appropriately sized and things didn’t feel too blocked off. You literally have to be able to walk around the entire table because it’s in the middle of the whole house. We opened up some pocket doors that lead to our living room and took out a wall that was in between our dining room and our kitchen. The wall didn’t look structural then ended up needing a beam and also caused a minor A/C reroute. We had our new floors installed (you can read about the flooring in our house here), painted the walls Behr Frost (a cool white), installed baseboards, new electrical outlets and switches and finally a new light fixture. I love the boldness of the black and white with the traditional furniture and architecture. I want our home to…

    This post is sponsored by Behr Paint. All thoughts and opinions are our own. Coming up with ideas little boy’s room can be a bit tricky! Especially if you little boy is too old for a nursery but is still a bit too young for pre-teen and teenager room. When they are still young, I like to either come up with a cool theme for the room and/or come up with a unique color palette. Paint makes all the difference & upcoming Behr Color Clinic Paint is by far the best way to transform a space. We are so excited to be partnered with Behr Paint and talking more about the Behr Color Clinic on this project. We love Behr and we have used their paint on so many different projects.

  • Installing Bamboo Flooring

    This post is sponsored by the Home Depot but all opinions are my own. I recently replaced the carpet in my girls room with this Bamboo Click Lock flooring from the Home Depot in the light brown color. We are just loving this flooring so much. It was really easy to install. We were able to do all of it in one weekend. My kids room had carpet in them when we bought the house. The carpet was not in terrible shape when we moved in but after two and a half years of my kids wear and tear the carpet was needing to be replaced. I wanted something easy to install, affordable, and also good for kids. I really do think that the Bamboo Flooring was a great choice. Installing the Flooring When it came to actually removing the old carpet and doing the prep work for the floor and installing the Bamboo flooring from Home Depot that only took a day. We did the finishing touches with installing the quarter round the next day. I can’t even believe how easy it was to…
