I love this gorgeous #wallpape  and the stairwell! Swoon!
Wallpaper Options
Wallpaper makes a comeback! When it comes to interior design and home decor, wallpaper has been making a big splash. Designer wallpapers have been turning up in luxury homes more frequently, and hand-painted papers and custom designs are increasingly popular. #wallpaper #home #homedecor #trend #luxury #interiordesign

This is such an easy and fun project!  You could even get the kiddos to help you out. An easy upcycle project: tinted glass bottles and jars.

I did not use to like #midcenturymodern   #architecture but I am becoming a fan.  So much natural light!
Midcentury modern style had its heyday for roughly two and a half decades in the middle of the 20th century, from the mid-1940s to 1970. Its aesthetic has always had a following, but thanks to shows such as Mad Men it has seen a resurgence in popularity and has been introduced to a whole new group of fans. #midcenturymodern #modern #interiordesign #home #homedecor #luxury

Hi, I'm Vivienne. I am a wife, a mom of 4 boys, and a smart-alleck.   I love thrift store finds (but am picky about brands of toilet paper) and I'm afraid of spiders, heights, and pressurized rolls of biscuit dough. If Erma Bombeck and MacGyver had a love child, that child might have turned out a little bit like me. 

I share tutorials for crafts, DIY projects, household  tips,  recipes, entertaining, holiday  decor and funny stories about my family on The V Spot blog

Bragging rights
My projects have been featured on sites like Apartment Therapy, LifeHacker and reNest, as well as some of the most popular craft and lifestyle blogs around.
