The Way YOU Are- Good Girl Gone Glad

I am so glad you all are enjoying this series as much as I am! I LOVE seeing real peoples homes, so inspiring!

And now Jesse's favorite spot from Good Girl Gone Glad.....!

I want to start by saying how excited I am to be a part of this series. Thank You Leah! Our home has definitely been a work in progress. Now that my twins are 4 years old it is making decorating so much easier. I think we all tell ourselves we will just tell our children no, and teach them not to touch things you don't want them too. But in my case, I had a 20 month old and then had twins. So that wasn't really an option for me. I was out numbered. I couldn't be everywhere. So recently I have been working on my living room and it is quickly becoming my favorite space. I recently painted this cabinet...

Layering it with my favorite mementos of family. Like these shoes my grandmother
kept from when I was a baby, along with a photo of her and I.

This is my favorite spot to sit and blog. Mostly because I get to sit and enjoy the view...

Of my newly stenciled wall. I love the look of wallpaper, but just couldn't commit
to it. So the next best thing was to stencil it. I chose to use a gloss finish on the design
to give it a nice sheen against the flat paint. So at night when I sit to read and blog,
the wall gives off a lovely glow. I am still looking for two other round mirrors to flank
either side of the mirror I have up there. Just haven't found the right thing yet. I hope
that my space might inspire you. I know reading all of the wonderful blogs gives me
so much inspiration.

Thank You Leah, for having me today!

Wow. Your room looks great. I am so inspired to stencil a wall. And I am in love with the framed baby shoes. So dear. I know what you mean about it getting easier as they get a bit older! Well done. Such a fun series.

Love that cabinet. And I can't believe she stenciled that. I was completely fooled and thought it was wallpaper, for sure.
