I love my throw pillow from CB2 so I decided to make curtains using the wonderful pattern from my pillow. I plan on making two aqua colored curtains and one gray one.

I drew the pattern first. I'll use this to sew the pattern onto the curtain fabric.

I hand sewed the design onto the fabric. This took quite sometime. I started Friday evening and finished on Saturday. I still have two more curtains to go!

The finished curtain!!! I really like it. Aqua and orange go well together!

I love French macarons although I have not eaten them in a while since I’m vegan. I decided to decorate with photos of macarons. This will have to do until I actually find a pastry shop with vegan macarons!

 

This was such an easy decorating project that added color to the kitchen!

I found Emily’s Butternut Squash and Black Bean Chili in Pumpkin Bowls on Oh She Glows at http://ohsheglows.com/2010/10/07/butternut-squash-and-black-bean-chili-in-pumpkin-bowls/

The Chili made of black beans, onions, red pepper, garlic, and butternut squash.

 

Pumpkin bowls!!!

Pink + Blue

Twin 1 decided to add a little more color to the apartment. I chose bold fun colors such as pink and blue. Honestly, I did not know this blue would turn out Carolina-Blue(ish) but it’s ok. If it were any lighter I would seriously have to repaint. I first painted the inside of the doorway pink. After letting the paint dry I painted the outside blue. I love these colors!

I hung these pictures as a simple decor project that brightens up the door entrance.

I’m sure my niece and nephews will enjoy the apartment when they visit. It’s very kid friendly in appearance 😉

This view gives you a better view of the study. I enjoyed this quick and fun painting project!

I decided to do more decorating while Twin 2 was in town!

My beautiful nephew and niece (mini Twin)!

I bought these pre-cut pendants from Michael’s and hung them on ribbon. Mini Twin helped me organize them. This was a quick and easy decorating project!

 

Mini Twin, Twin 2, and Twin 1- I really enjoyed their visit!
