OTD

Amberwood

One of our all-time most-pinned images on Pinterest is a partial living room photo from 3904 Amberwood Drive in Addison, TX. The room is a fun juxtaposition between modern and rustic decor. While this is fabulous, we think our pinners are most attracted to the huge wall clock that is the statement piece in this beautiful room. It’s big, beautiful, and proves that wall clocks can be functional and good-looking. Get the look yourself in any style, size, or shape, with this wall clock compilation!

7 Ideas for Creative Master Closet Storage


This morning, while getting updated on the weekend activity on our Pinterest page, we stumbled across a great story that we wanted to share with you. Now, it’s no secret that we’ve got some amazing homes on the market, and, with them, come features like fabulous closets. We’ve got so many great closets, we had to create an entirely separate board for them! If you don’t live in a home with excess space that allows for a huge closet, though, that doesn’t mean you can’t get the most out of your current space! We’re amazed and inspired by this post on The Inspired Room and it’s suggestions for master closet storage! Take a look…

There’s no shortage of amazing decor out there these days, contemporary, modern, traditional, retro, you name it. It seems that there’s a never-ending supply of fabulous and surprising new home products to keep us on our toes. On today’s OTD, we’re looking specifically at light fixtures. While doing a little pinning, we began to notice some awesome light fixtures in our homes. Inspired by this, we went on a hunt for dining room and breakfast room light fixtures. What we found was both fun and beautiful. Check it out below!

Curtains, drapes, window treatments, whatever you call them, they’re a staple in homes everywhere, and they’re the topic of today’s OTD. They’re an amazing way to bring life, color, and texture to rooms, as well as a useful resource for managing heat and A/C bills. They can be decorative, functional, or both. It all just depends on what you do with them! To show you their extreme versatility and the different ways in which they can change a room, check out these examples!

Of The Day: Radiant Orchid Is The Color Of 2014

A new year means many things, new resolutions, new fashion trends, new home trends, and a new Pantone Color of the Year.

Last year, Pantone dubbed Emerald as the color of 2013, a stunning hue of green. For 2014, Pantone has chosen Radiant Orchid, a rich and vibrant mix of fuchsia, purple, and pink. Their yearly color tends to be an indicator of future trends across all kinds of industries

To show you how Radiant Orchid might be incorporated in your home, we gathered the above inspiration. We love the color and the fact that it is very versatile. It’s just one more reason to get excited about  the year ahead of us! Thanks for catching up with OTD!
