I am back with another room makeover today! This was such a fun one 🙂 My client, Lori, found me through Pinterest after spotting her friend in the nursery design I did last year. Lori and family moved into a new house a few months back and were looking to update a bunch of the rooms, starting with the playroom. We started here because they were having 30+ people over for the holidays and wanted to have a place for the kids to play. A lot of the design and color scheme was based off this super cute teepee she had already purchased, and then we played up the camp vibe, and amped up the color!

I ended up running back to the paint store 3 times to get the perfect blue, the last time I packed up the teepee and took it with me and had them color match it, ha! Next up was storage, we needed a lot for all the toys, and I loved the idea of turning these cube storage units on their side so everything was easy to access.

Affordable pillows from Amazon gave a new life to a couch that was already in the room.  Next up, we hung four prints from my friend’s camp inspired shop, Roo Kee Roo. I had actually been holding on to these for a few years, waiting for the perfect space to hang them, and am beyond happy they found the best home!

I had so much fun bringing this colorful camp play to life, and more rooms in Lori’s house are in the works! Additional pics after the break, and stay tuned for a shopping guide and DIY details!

It’s almost time for the Big Game!! Ok, I will admit, I don’t know a ton about football (please refer to the “plays” I drew up), but I love the commercials and any excuse to get a bunch of friends together. I know gourmet hotdogs are popular right now, so this year I thought it would be fun to do a DIY Hotdog Bar! A couple tips for creating your own:

1. Use a spice rack for stadium seating for your condiments.
2. Keep everyone hydrated with jugs of gatorade or punch.
3. Chalk out a few tasty combinations to give your guests a game-plan for their hotdog.
4. Individual salsa snacking solo cups and chips are a winner.

I wanted to taste test a couple combinations before gameday, and had to share just a few of my favorites: Taco Dog, Buffalo Dog, Classic Dog, Nacho Dog!
