Cardboard Furniture?

Cardboard Furniture?

Yup. You read that right. Cardboard furniture. KARTON is thinking outside the box and created a 100% recyclable product that fits easily into the urban lifestyle and complements it: affordable yet stylish, low maintenance but entirely functional. Beds, dressers, tables, they have it all. Get this – it can be assembled in minutes without tools. The company claims its high-grade corrugated paperboard means its products are super strong. You can even paint it.

Who would have thought?

Pantone Color of the Year

Pantone Color of the Year

Did you guys hear about the new Pantone color of the year for 2018? Ultra violet it is!

color of the year

There is a whole backstory on Pantone’s selection their yearly color. And lots of people have thoughts on what it means – like this interesting, albeit slightly political take from Refinery 29. Ingenuity, unity, feminism – whether or not you are into the analysis of the color “ultra violet” and it’s meaning, one thing is for sure, we’ll be seeing a lot more of this color. Pantone’s color of the year typically manifests in fashion, decor and wedding trends.

I’ll be honest, I’m not too sure about this year’s Pantone color of the year. I’m not really a purple person but I am intrigued to see how people are going to use it. I think subtle accents is the best way to use this vibrant shade. I’ve rounded up a few ways I’ve seen purple used in home decor that I think work and a few home decor accents that feature the 2018 Pantone color of the year.

This slab is super unique and has subtle shades of purple in the veining.… Read more

Master Bedroom Refresh Reveal!

Master Bedroom Refresh Reveal!

OK, guys, it’s here! It’s time for our master bedroom refresh REVEAL!!

But first, a recap. Check out this post where I explained why I wanted to update the room despite just “finishing” it last year, shortly after we moved in. Basically, the room didn’t feel new because, despite being a new house and a new room, most of the furniture and even the paint color was all the same as our previous master bedroom. Since we have a laundry list of projects to do in the house, I wouldn’t be able to invest a ton of money into our master bedroom refresh so I’d have to get creative. I repurposed a lot of what we had, painted, changed the layout, mixed in a few new pieces and accessories and the end result is a completely different look and feel in the room! Here’s the mood board I was working with:

2018 Project List

2018 Project List

A new year, a new list of projects for the Daly Digs! While this list may prove to be a little optimistic a girl can dream, right? I wanted to share our 2018 project list to give you insight into what you can expect to see on the blog and what we’re looking forward to doing around the house.

But first, here’s a quick recap of the major projects we completed in 2017.

2017 Projects

-Last year we made a lot of progress on the exterior of the house.  We painted the outside of the house (ourselves!) and got a shiny new metal roof, which was a giant leap forward in the home reno direction.

-We completed the dining room.

-We finished our modern boho guest bedroom as part of the One Room Challenge. I had a little fun with this project and did the whole room in a cactus print wallpaper. I was thrilled to have the project featured on Design Sponge. 🙂

-TV Built-in project. The built-ins were a project I’d prefer not to reminisce about but they’re done and it’s all in the past now.… Read more

A Sparkly NYE Rosé and Dessert Party

NYE Rosé and Dessert Party

Ladies, what better way to ring in the new year with your girlfriends with a NYE rosé and dessert party? For NYE inspiration this year we created a heck of a party, right in the Daly Digs dining room, proving you  too can deck out a space at home for some festive entertaining. For our celebration, we took a traditional approach to New Year’s Eve and created a sparkly, confetti-filled NYE rosé and dessert party with an edgy twist. Check out all the shiny details, you’re not gonna wanna miss this one.
Huge thanks to Courtney for featuring our shoot on her fantastic entertaining blog, Pizzazzerie! Head over to see more from the feature 🙂

If you’ve been reading the blog for a while, you know my number one tip for entertaining starts before the actual party with stationery. Sending an invitation not only makes your friends feel special but is a great opportunity to set the stage for the party while keeping an organized head-count and encourages your friends to take your party seriously!… Read more

Modern Farmhouse Holiday Porch Decor

Modern Farmhouse Holiday Porch Decor

Can you believe Christmas is almost here!?! These last few months have really flown by. I was very reluctant to throw out my pumpkins and put away the fall decor (I waited until December 1st) but I finally decked the halls a little bit around here and put out some holiday porch decor. We’re traveling over the holidays this year so we did not buy a big tree or decorate inside, but I do like to keep our porch current with seasonal decor, especially since we’ve done so much to improve the look of the exterior of the house. So, here’s how we decorated our modern farmhouse exterior with some holiday porch decor 🙂

Holiday Porch Decor

I kept it very simple. I picked up a couple of real wreaths from the Christmas tree tent for our main entry and tied bows using black and white plaid ribbon. I also grabbed a couple poinsettias – I’m not typically a poinsettia fan but since our rug has some red and maroon tones I thought it would work. I think it’s imperative that you take the poinsettias out of the cheesy plastic wrap they come in and put them in a different container.… Read more

Semihandmade Launches New Line of Custom Cabinet Doors

Semihandmade Launches New Line of Custom Cabinet Doors

Everyone has heard of IKEA, but have you heard of Semihandmade? Semihandmade is a company that makes custom cabinet doors to fit IKEA cabinets allowing you to have the look of a custom kitchen at a lower price point. Semihandmade’s newest line of custom cabinet doors was designed by blogger, designer and product creator extraordinaire, Sarah Sherman Samuel. She’s also the designer behind some pretty awesome wallpapers!

Inspired by classic beadboard because of its versatility, Sarah created a modern beadboard look. I love the detail the clean lines give the cabinets, while still looking fresh and sleek.

They come in 8 colors! 

And if the new custom cabinet doors were not enough, Sarah designed a line of brushed brass drawer and door pulls to go along with it!

Pretty awesome, huh?

I can. not. wait. to design my new kitchen!! If you or someone you know is about to tackle a kitchen reno, IKEA cabinets with semihandmade door fronts are an option to consider!… Read more

Things I’m Diggin’

Things I’m Diggin’

Hiya friends and Happy December! I was reluctant to throw away my pumpkins but I finally did. While I’m going very minimal with holiday decor this year since we’re traveling over Christmas, I did fall in love with some unique global holiday decor that you must see.

The Citizenry is a great company offering home goods from around the world – my favorite kind. They believe “our homes should be reflections of the journeys we take. Our personal spaces deserve designs with a soul, a story, and a purpose.” Isn’t that awesome? They partner with artisans from around the world and offer unique handmade global goodies.  The African mudcloth stockings and tree skirt is sooooo, so good. And that other geometric pattered stocking is from artisans in Peru, an amazing place I recently visited.

And speaking of boho Christmas decor, check out my Christmas tree last year. I used lots of these cute little woven macrame ornaments, which I still love.
