Bedroom Reveal…

White and Blue Bedroom - Gray Woven Throw - Serena & Lily - Sunshine & Stilettos Blog (Instagram: @katlynmaupin)

So excited to share room #2 that is officially complete in our home! We went back and forth so much as to whether paint or not (I wanted to do the whole house a super pale gray color), but ultimately decided against it since our home is a rental and would need to be repainted back to the original in a year or two when we move again. When picking out a color palette, I wanted to go for navy’s and light blue’s to create a relaxing and calm feel…and I knew Dylan wouldn’t complain too much about the colors being “too girly!” I’ve always been a big fan of white bedding, so this Serena & Lily duvet was a no brainer. I also ordered this throw and lamps from Serena & Lily…they’re AMAZING! The lamps are so massive, which I love. I didn’t want them to look like little babies against our king size bed. I was able to get a 15% off code for Serena & Lily for y’all – just use KATLYN15 at checkout! I love mixing in refinished vintage art deco pieces in with my decor. It adds so much character! I scored our buffet off Facebook marketplace for dirt cheap. It had drawers in it, so we decided to use it as a dresser and refinish it for the bedroom! We refinished it with white paint and added the prettiest gold knobs…it’s probably my favorite piece in our house now!

I knew I wanted a little sitting area in the bedroom, too. I ordered this blue tufted chair using the Eyely app, which let’s you upload a photo of the room and decorate it virtually through the app. It’s so neat to see your vision come to life in real-time, instead of waiting for the pieces to come in and praying it looks good! You can also get 20% off Eyely app purchases with “KM20”. The last things I ordered for our bedroom were these gorgeous abstract pieces from Framebridge. I had the hardest time ever finding artwork for the house, so I purchased tons of digital artwork from several Continue Reading

Living Room Reveal with SANUS…

Blue and Blush Living Room - Sunshine & Stilettos Blog (Instagram: @katlynmaupin)

EEEK! Our first room in the house is officially D-O-N-E! I’ve had a ton of trouble staying focused on one room (just going to blame the ADHD for that one), so I’m so glad that I can finally see some real progress on the house! Decorating has been a little tricky, because we have a pretty small house. I still wanted to make the most out of our starter home though until we started building our forever home in a year or so! When planning out our living room decor, I started by compiling a list of things that were important to both of us. For me, it was color (you may remember Dylan was BEYOND anti-color when we lived at our first apartment), lots of seating for when we entertain, and pretty pillows (seems strange, but I totally have a pillow obsession, and you can 100% tell a cheaply made pillow from an expensive quality one…I have some custom made pillows in production that will replace these in a month or so!). For Dylan, he wanted seating for when we have parties + grill out with all our friends, and he wanted to upgrade our 50″ TV…because that was no where near big enough for when we entertain and host football watch parties. I rolled my eyes, but agreed. And if buying an obnoxious television for the living room gives me an excuse to entertain and buy cute marble cheese trays, I will oblige. And you better believe I have fully taken advantage of that and gotten 20+ entertaining dishes that are GOORRGGGG! But we will save that for another day.

The first thing we bought for our living room was a new 70″ television…because ya know, #priorities. I was admittedly pretty excited about his new toy, too! We quickly realized that we needed to get a new wall mount, because our new one wasn’t going to cut it with the weight increase. Insert SANUS. If you haven’t heard of SANUS – 1. They’re the bomb.com and 2. You’re seriously missing out! I’ve been using SANUS wall mounts for 5+ years on all of my TV’s…I love that they instantly elevate the look of the room and place the television at a more comfortable height to watch TV! Appearance and utility win-win! I also knew that I didn’t want something that heavy sitting on our media center. That thing costs a pretty penny and with my luck, it would break the wood and completely bust through it or the pups would bump into it while playing, knocking it over and shattering both the TV and our glass coffee table. Seems far fetched, but it would
