Master Bedroom Refresh

Master Bedroom Refresh

Giving our Master a Facelift

Hiya, friends! So, listen. I’ve dropped a couple of hints about it and now it’s time to unveil the plan for my master bedroom refresh!! If you’ve been following along on the blog for a while then you know we blogged the reveal earlier this year and you may think it’s a little soon to be changing things up but let me explain because there are a few reasons why. First, to put it simply, I’m over it. Even though I shared the reveal with you all in January, the bedroom doesn’t look all that different from the master in our old home. Most of the furniture is the same and heck, we even painted the walls a similar color as our old master. Second, as other rooms here in the Daly Digs begin to take shape and the overall style and decor identity for the Daly Digs comes to fruition, I’m not sure our existing master bedroom fits in. I tend to love and have a lot of art and accents in warm earthy tones and I am just not feeling the bright, cool tones in the master any longer.… Read more

Bryce and Zion Trip Report: Exploring Utah’s National Parks

Bryce and Zion Trip Report: Exploring Utah’s National Parks

Our Visit to Bryce and Zion National Parks

I’ve had the desert on my mind folks! Hubby and I recently returned from a trip out west to visit Bryce and Zion National Parks (and Vegas, of course). (Did you see my mood board blog post? Check it out to see how my Utah trip inspired me in terms of home decor!) It was my first time visiting Utah and I am so glad we finally did it. I had been craving a hiking adventure and we needed an excuse to break in our hiking shoes for our upcoming trip to Peru! Bryce and Zion’s canyons are amazing, vast and rich in color. You have to experience it on your own if you ever get the opportunity. Today I’m sharing my Bryce and Zion trip report. We did the 2 parks in 4 days and it took a little planning to fit in everything I wanted to see and the hikes I wanted to do, so I figured I’d share how we did it and some tips I learned from experience.… Read more

Current Mood (Board): Desert Mountain Vibes

Current Mood (Board): Desert Mountain Vibes

Inspired by Utah’s Desert Mountain Vibes

If you follow me on Instagram then you know I’m in Utah right now. Hubby had to take a short trip to Salt Lake City so naturally, I insisted I join him and we make a trip out of it. We met up in Vegas and hit the road to Utah to explore Bryce and Zion National Parks and we will end with a couple of days in Sin City. I had never been to Utah and after spending a lot of time planning our trip, I am so so excited about it. You just don’t see anything close to desert mountain landscape in the sunshine state. The scenery and terrain are enough to make my terracotta-loving heart beat a little faster. I’m feeling so inspired by Utah, I decided to put together a desert mountain mood board that reflects my current state of mind. My personal design style favors earthy tones and boho elements so I feel right at home amongst this desert mountain oasis.

It’s going to be tough not to buy all the terracotta pendant lights when I get home!… Read more

The Summer Cocktail Recipe you Need

The Aperol Spritz

You guys, I have the best summer cocktail recipe for you. I first learned about the Aperol Spritz earlier this year from Annette Joseph when she served them at the welcome party for the LA styling workshop I attended. I can’t believe I did not know of this drink sooner! This Italian cocktail is crisp, refreshing and anything with boozy bubbles is a win in my book. Summer is here! Forget the froze, the Aperol Spritz is the summer cocktail recipe you need!

24 hours in Martha’s Vineyard

24 hours in Martha’s Vineyard

Martha’s Vineyard Trip Report

While in Rhode Island and Massachusetts for a family wedding last week, hubby and I took a little side trip and spent 24 hours in Martha’s Vineyard. It was a short trip but we managed to do a lot!

24 Hours in Martha’s Vineyard

We left for Martha’s Vineyard on a Sunday morning. You have to take a ferry to get to the island – or you can fly but I didn’t explore that option. There are ferries from Massacussets and RI. We were already in RI so I opted for the ferry out of Quonset Point, RI. This ferry is pedestrian only. You have to take a different ferry out of Woods Hole if you plan to take your car. You can rent a car pretty easily on Martha’s Vineyard so unless you’re staying for an extended time, I don’t see any reason you should take your car. I will say that the ferry from RI to Martha’s Vineyard on the way back was very rough and myself and a handful of others were sea sick.… Read more

Impress your Guests with this 4th of July Party Idea

Impress your Guests with this 4th of July Party Idea

Vintage All-American 4th of July Party

Summer is here and it’s almost the 4th of July! Are you planning a 4th of July party? Today I’m sharing inspiration for a vintage all-American 4th of July party featuring a killer burger bar and tablescape with traditional Americana elements like vintage soda bottles, Cracker Jacks and motorcycle vibes.

Check out this awesome 4th of July stationery! You should know by know that I’m a big fan of sending coordinating invites when hosting a party.
What better way to celebrate 4th of July than a burger bar? To style our vintage all-American burger bar I used vintage soda crates, an American flag backdrop and vintage accessories. Burger labels coordinate with the invitations. Look at those cute motorcycle cut outs I love the idea of displaying French fries in these friers! You could even place one at each place setting for your guests. Indigo textiles, wood tones and vintage books round out the display.  Vintage-inspired condiment containers are a must! Home Depot has some, they’re awesome!
4th of July party decorating can be pretty!… Read more

Boho Entertaining

As most of you know, I love me a good tablescape. It’s something that has stuck with me from my days of styling weddings and events. I still peruse wedding blogs to keep up with what’s trending and draw inspiration for my own entertaining editorials. This boho bridal shower featured on my favorite wedding blog Green Wedding Shoes is worth checking out! I love the use of textures and florals and the decadence of the food. The styling is on point and this one has me swooning.… Read more

Copper Home Decor Roundup

Copper Home Decor Roundup

For the Love of Copper!

Have you guys spotted all the copper home decor gracing the aisles of your fave stores lately? I see copper everywhere and I while I’m not going gaga for copper, there are a few pieces I could totally see working into my home. According to Domain, copper would be out in 2017 but House Beautiful said that according to 2016 Pinterest analysis, copper would stick around a little while longer. I don’t think we should concern ourselves too much with what’s trending and instead decorate with what we love. If you happen to love copper, go for it!

Now excuse me while I dream about displaying some pretty shiny copper cookware on the open shelving in my new kitchen…except I don’t have open shelving…nor a new kitchen. Someday, folks. Someday.

Custom Frames Online Made Easy

Custom Frames Online Made Easy

Custom Frames Online

I recently purchased my first custom frame online from Frames By Mail. I did this mostly out of convenience since I was running low on time for my One Room Challenge guest bedroom reveal, for which I purchased this awesome buffalo print. I needed a frame for that guy and decided to buy one online rather than have it custom framed, especially since I didn’t want or need an elaborate decorative frame. I stumbled upon Frames by Mail and I found it to be such an easy and enjoyable experience I wanted to tell you guys about it.

custom frames online

The interface is super user-friendly. You start by choosing your frame from a wide variety of options. They have everything from simple wood frames to elaborate ornate frames.  Once you select your frame, it takes you to a new webpage where you can view your frame. The image of your frame changes to reflect your selections and features such as your art size and your matting size and colors. You can also choose from a few different backing and plexiglass options including non-glare plexi, an option I took advantage of since my art would be opposite a window in my guest room. … Read more

Black Outdoor Farmhouse Lights

Black Outdoor Farmhouse Lights

15 Black Outdoor Farmhouse Lights

Ever since we finished the guest room, we’ve been focusing most of our attention on the exterior of the Daly Digs. You guys may have seen on my InstaStory that we painted the exterior of our house (ourselves!), had a new roof installed (it’s finally done!) and purchased a few new accents for the porch. We still have to finish painting the bottom of the house including the front door, but we’re moving along and I’ve been on the hunt for some black outdoor farmhouse lights to replace the miserably sad ones we removed. I thought I’d round up some of my favorite black outdoor farmhouse lights I stumbled upon during my search. I’m pretty sure we’ve decided on which ones we’re going with, but as always I plan to make you wait until the exterior reveal. 🙂
