One of my favorite things to do in the Spring, besides admire all of the beautiful flowers outside our home, is to bring them inside to enjoy. Right at this moment I have a vase of amazing white peonies right on my desk so that I can stare at them all day. Here is a little snippet of what I have brought inside.
As you can see, this branch was yelling at me to give it a trim. So I brought it inside after shaking off as much pollen as I could.
It’s currently occupying this corner of our dining room. I’ll be posting a full reveal very soon of the dining room, but here are a couple of sneak peeks. How amazing are these lights? I have two of them!
And here are the peonies in the ‘wild’ at the bottom of our driveway.
And here they are in the dining room. The wallpaper is actually the first choice that I made for this room redo, about 3 years ago. I’m so happy this room is finally finished!

My mid mod bedroom for the One Room Challenge is coming along great! There are still some decisions to make, like what rug should we buy and what should we use as nightstands. But the biggest decision of what bed to buy has been made! And boy am I happy with our choice. Here are some basic plans for the space.
The rug in the first photo is not really an option. The problem is it doesn’t come in the right size. But if it did, I would buy it. It’s from Anthropologie and it is so dreamy.
For the last couple of years I have been watching the fun going on at the One Room Challenge and this year I decided to sign up as a guest participant! If you’re not familiar with it, over the course of 6 weeks we will all be redecorating a room and sharing the process on our blogs. You can read all about it on the website for One Room Challenge and see all of the guests posts here. You can also follow along on instagram at @oneroomchallenge. (P.s. you can also find me on instagram at @brandeyehome).
So what room am I going to redecorate? Our bedroom! We switched bedrooms over a year ago and I never really decorated the new bedroom. And to make things worse, I decided to switch beds and move ours to the guestroom and buy a new mattress for ourselves. But I haven’t decided on a bed yet, so our new mattress is just on the floor. It’s currently a really sad and depressing room. This challenge will force me to transform the room in a short time frame, 6 weeks!
Here is the bedroom as it is today.
