work in progress

I'm a few posts deep now, and I realized the other day I haven't yet touched on my mom's favorite subject: home design.  My mother had a knack for taking the plainest of spaces, and turning it into a beautiful, homey room that you couldn't wait to lounge in.  I never really understood how she had the patience for it, but now that I'm in my own place, I'm starting to appreciate it more.

I'm currently still staring at a blank wall in my bedroom, due to my roomate Kristin embarking on a London adventure for one year (she's kind of a big deal). When she left, the big screen went with her, and thus my TV is now in the living room.  So now, I'm left with a massive empty space, with unlimited ways to fill it.  The way I see it, I have an empty canvas. I'm in the midst of a wall project, which I'll be sharing soon.

For now, here are a couple exciting ways to spruce up your space:

Kelly of the glamourai posted this great link a couple days ago, showcasing one room decorated in two nearly identical ways: one with a high budget, and one with a low one.  Looking through all the photos, I was amazed at how similar all the rooms looked, but how steep the price differences were. I am all over that low budget route!

This bowl is actually a bit pricey at $39, but it is so unique! For some reason, it reminds me of a margarita...I must be having a long day.

blissliving home argo throw in ivory/pebble
A lovely publicist I've worked with a few times gifted me this throw in a beautiful floral pattern last spring, and it is one of the softest throws I have ever felt (even several months later).  It consists of cashmere and bamboo rayon, which also means it's environmentally friendly. Often times I forget it's a throw, and use it as a blanket because it's so cozy and comfortable.

This same publicist also sent me an e-mail this past week about Blissliving Home's friends and family event--and I wanted to share with all of you!
