Is your outdoor space ready for BBQ's and entertaining? With Memorial day being next week, I thought it was the perfect time to talk about summer backyard decor. I am sharing 3 easy looks to help you update your deck, patio and yard for this summers fun and entertaining.
Today I am sharing 5 easy updates to refresh your kitchen for the summer. I like to keep decor pretty simple and carefree, especially during the spring and summer. These changes will give you great style without a lot of fuss, plus they won't break the bank.
My latest obsession is wide mouth vases with green leafs or fresh flower spilling over its edges. You can use these vases anywhere in your home but my favorite places to use them is on a kitchen island or near the sink.
Get the look with our "Thomas Vase" here.
My other obsession is vintage/flat woven rugs. They instantly brighten up any space and I love using them in kitchens like in this stunning design by Studio McGee. Do you spy the wide mouth jar here too?

I love statement wallpaper but for some, wallpaper can be scary or maybe you rent your home and can't make big changes. A great way to get that statement pattern into your home without the big commitment is roman shades or drapery in a statement fabric.

I am loving textured dishes and serve ware and this set from West Elm does not disappoint! These dishes can take your dinner from plain and boring to beautiful and elegant.

Cutting boards are the perfect mix of form and function. They come in all kinds of shapes and finishes to suit every decor style and I dont see them going out of style. I like to use wood boards, leaning them against the back splash to create layers. Pair them with pretty salt & pepper shakers and crocks full of wood utensils for a easy style.

After our very first Ask Abigail Amira blog post, our inbox was flooded with questions. I love it, keep them coming! We are answering more questions from our readers, and this one is from Jessica "I am looking for a neutral color that wont seem boring, what do you suggest?" Finding the right neutrals should be easy, right? Not so much when there are so many different color options. How do you choose the perfect one for your space that isn't boring? Today I will try to help by showing you our favorite creamy neutrals.
Lately, I have been receiving a lot of questions about my favorite colors. So today I thought I would round up some of my favorite saturated blues. I like to use these colors to create a bold design in a sophisticated way. They are perfect as an accent wall or paired with beautiful wainscoting.
Warmer weather has got me thinking about playing outside, BBQ's and dining alfresco. One of my favorite things to do in the summer is to entertain friends and family. This year I plan to do lots more outdoor entertaining, so today I want to share 3 tips to make summer entertaining easy and fun!
The season is starting to change and so is home decor trends. In spring, everything starts to become a little bit lighter and brighter, so its the perfect time to give your home a refresh. Wayfair.com put together their trend forecast for the upcoming season, so i'd like to share how to use it in your own home today.
Today I want to share with you three small rooms with big style. I have designed a bedroom, living room and dining room mixing some high end and low budget pieces. I am highlighting my favorite pieces from Pottery Barns small spaces collection. All the small space pieces have that high end look without the high price. I love that they are smaller scale and can fit in those tiny city apartments or long and narrow rooms (Like my family room!).
We're a year old!! I can't tell you how happy I am that my little blog has made this milestone. I was so nervous to start this blog and now it is growing into something even bigger than I could imagine.
The project we are currently working on is remodeling our outdated master bathroom. Its footprint is tiny and it had this huge bathtub that took up most of the room. I’m a big fan of relaxing in a nice hot, bubble bath. Unfortunately, here the hot water runs out long before you get this large tub filled up. We decided to replace the tub with a walk-in shower to really maximize the space.
I love being in my kitchen, I think in another life I would have been a pastry chef. I love making yummy treats or a delicious dinner for my family to enjoy. The sights, the smells, I love it all. My husband and I have lived in a lot of different style homes over the last ten years. Some kitchens I have loved and others I found it hard to work in.
Have you seen a new trend you want to experiment with? Pillows are an inexpensive way to change the look of your room and try out new trendy colors (like Pantone's color of the year, Greenery!).
I've been wanting to do a fireplace in my bedroom since we moved in to this house. The cost of a real fireplace quickly ruled that out, but that wouldn't stop me from getting the look of a real fireplace.
Finding the perfect dining room chairs can be difficult. If you’re like my family and use your dining room table for eating, school work, crafts, and conversations then you know comfort is key.
Stumped on what to get that special someone in your life? Here is my handy 2016 gift guide to help you select the perfect gift in any budget.
I truly believe that home decor and design is ever-evolving. Homes that are decorated over time, in my experience, are the most beautiful and comfortable homes to be in.

I love keeping the feeling of Christmas magic around after my tree is practically bare and the beautiful presents have all been opened.
Thanksgiving is just around the corner and all through my house it looks more like Christmas. Usually I wait to put my Christmas decor up until after Thanksgiving but this year I just can't wait to decorate.
Our master bedroom has been changing a lot ever since we bought our home a little over a year ago
