East Falls Home

Uncategorized

The home that I decorated in East Falls is finally complete! This space is the home of my friends Holly, Dan, and their daughter Piper.  We started with a blank slate by using white paint throughout the first floor and up the stairs. Everything was painted the same shade, Snowbound by Sherwin Williams, even the trim. The house was previously painted yellow, and the white really brightened up the rooms.

The asian flower art above I picked up at an estate sale. The green shadow box was from Joann fabric.

The light fixture was originally black with chandelier bulbs. We spray painted it red and added new modern round bulbs, which completely transformed this light fixture. The total cost to update the light was about $30. That is a huge savings compared to buying a new light, which would have been at least $100.

red shelves

The shelving unit above is from IKEA. This shelving unit is very versatile and affordable. It comes in many different sizes and also in the more basic black or white. We wanted to inject some color into the space, so we went with red. The light above was spray painted to match.

The view above is what you see when you walk in the front door. Dan had the great idea to use the Velvet Underground Andy Warhol poster. It matches perfectly with the smaller Andy Warhol prints. Do you remember them? They are from a DIY that I shared with you before. Most of them ended up in this space, along with some art that Dan and Holly already owned. The lamps are from Target, the side table is from Joann fabric, the coffee table is from IKEA, and the chair on the left is from Homegoods.  The cactus and succulents are from a wonderful new shop in East Falls, which you need to check out. It’s called Vault + Vine and they have a great selection of plants, gifts, and coffee. It’s a win, win.

Dan also found the pillows below. How could I say no to Big Lebowski pillows? I couldn’t, and they’re awesome. The sofa is the Monroe from West Elm in celestial blue velvet.

The entryway I have blogged about before, but here are a couple new shots.

The amazing mirror and rug are from an estate sale. The secretary desk is from Craigslist, and the light and ceramic dogs are (mostly) from homegoods. Using a secretary as an entryway table is a great way to hide all the clutter that collects by the front door.

You won’t believe the transformation. Here are the photos from before:

 

What do you think? I think it looks incredible! And all of this was done on a budget of 3k. That was the initial budget, but it actually came in closer to 2k. We found a lot of great deals and we DIYed where we could.

Let me know if you need help decorating your space, and we can work on a plan to tackle it!

BRAND* EYE HOME NEWS

Uncategorized

I thought it was about time to makeover the brand*eye home brand, so I worked with Sarah from Wellstruck to create a new logo and brand style. I am so excited with the results! You will notice that my brand looks a lot more polished and professional and I thank Sarah for making it all come to life. Let me know what you think and stay tuned for details of fall markets that I’ll be attending starting soon!BrandEyeHome-Logo-Colorcropped-brandeyehome-monogram1.png

Barn Picking

Uncategorized

I had the wonderful opportunity this past weekend to explore a barn and house and found all sorts of amazing things for the brand*eye home shop. I went with my Dad, who owns an antique shop in York, PA, Olive Antiques, (75 South Gotwalt St., York PA) and he also found a ton of awesome finds. There was so much stuff to go through we didn’t even get through half of it and plan to return. My finds will be available at the Clover Market this Sunday. It’s in Chestnut Hill, Sunday April 9th from 10-5, 25 W. Highland Ave, Chestnut Hill PA.

Here are some photos of the exploration.

 

And this is what I found, which will be available Sunday in Chestnut Hill. Here is the Facebook invite where you can find all of the details.
