$100 Pottery Barn Gift Card Winner and Find Me On Periscope

Hi friends!  I wanted to pop in this weekend and announce the winner of the $100 Pottery Barn gift card.

Pottery Barn Giveaway

Karen Dunlap you are the lucky winner!!  I have e-mailed you the details.  Happy shopping!!

I also wanted to do a little public service announcement on a fun new social media outlet called Periscope.  Long story short, Periscope is a very new social media app that allows users to broadcast live anytime anywhere.  It is brought to you by Twitter.  Once you begin to follow people you will get an announcement that they are live and you can interact with them in real-time.  It is sort of like Facebook or Instagram with video.

You might be thinking- oh  no, another social media to learn and distract from my life.  But Periscope is actually really fun, and sort of addictive.  As a DIY blogger, I really like it in that I can live broadcast a DIY project or ask for opinions on decorating projects.

I am now on Periscope and the fun thing is it is so  new, no one knows what they are doing!  If you watch one of my broadcasts you will crack up.  I am trying to talk while focusing my camera and then trying to flip the screen all while responding to comments.  Hot mess.  I am sure I will get better, but definitely not for the amateur.

I have a feeling Periscope is going to catch on and become pretty big.  So my advice to you is to go here and take 5 minutes to sign up for Periscope.  Even if you don’t want to use it right away, you can snag your username of choice before it is taken!  Then once you are signed up, be sure to find me @Decordelirium.  I plan to broadcast lots of DIY tips and projects as well as some fun glimpses into our life.

PSA over.  Go back to your regularly scheduled programming and have a great rest of the weekend!

xoxo,

Blogging Anniversary and a GIVEAWAY!!!

Pottery Barn Giveaway

Hi lovelies!  I almost can’t believe it, but this week marks my 2 year blogging anniversary. Blogging has been such a blessing in my life.  It give me an outlet for my creative side.  It gives me a chance to write about something I am passionate about (in case you are wondering, employment law does not do it for me!)  It has also given me the opportunity to meet some amazing blogging buddies that I would probably not met otherwise.  I love how a common interest can bring together people who are really very different based upon their passion.

I am also so thankful for my lovely readers who take the time to read and make comments.  There are a million other design blogs out there to follow and I am so honored that you take the time to connect with me.  In honor of my anniversary I am having a giveaway for a $100 Pottery Barn gift card.  Think of the cozy fall decor you could get?  They even have my favorite tortoise shell pieces.

I also have exciting news coming up that I can’t wait to share regarding some big changes ahead for us.  It is going to involve a ton of opportunity for DIY projects, so I can’t wait to share.

Just follow the Rafflecopter instructions below.

Ken Fulk for Pottery Barn

Ken Faulk Pottery Barn

Pottery Barn

Lately, when I get the Pottery Barn catalog, if feel like it is always the same old stuff.  To me the decor has gotten tired, stale and predictable.  However, the other day, I was perusing their site and saw that they have collaborated with über chic San Francisco designer Ken Fulk.  The collection is classic, yet bold and whimsical.  It is just the jolt of fun and style that I think Pottery Barn needs.

Here are some of my favorites from the collection.

What do you think of the new collection?  I think it definitely steps up Pottery Barn’s design game.

Fabric Trend: Ticking Stripes

I have been seeing classic ticking stripes popping up all over the place lately.  This pattern is so timeless.  It very versatile and relatively inexpensive. While most associated with coastal homes, it can transition into modern and traditional spaces as well.

There is something so relaxed and comfortable about it!  It comes in a variety of colors, but blue is the most common.

Of course, trend setting Pottery Barn has a selection of ticking stripe items in their new spring line!
Don’t you just want to run out and decorate a beach house??  I also think it would be soo cute in a little boy’s room. Have you ever used ticking stripes as part of your decor?

Copy Cat Pottery Barn Nesting Tables

I had to share this amazing blog I read that specializes in finding replicas of designer favorites for less.  The blog is called Copy Cat Chic and it has some amazing ideas!

I love a good Pottery Barn knock-off and this time Reichel at Copy Cat Chic found a very inexpensive knock-off to these Pottery Barn Tanner nesting tables.
