It is time to decorate for the spring and summer months and that makes me so incredibly happy. Its time for brighter colors and fresher textures!

Last year, I posted a tutorial on how I spray painted some fish tank coral toys and made it into faux Pottery Barn-style coral. Beth from Home Stories from A to Z was the one who started it all for me and I am so grateful for her original post! Check it out for a great way to spruce up your home for very little money.

(I would like to apologize in advance – my picture-taking and posting skills were lacking last year so please excuse those and instead, enjoy the ideas for your spring/summer decorating in 2012!)

I am so excited about my first guest post! Emily at Main Street Chic asked me to contribute to her series, 5 Things I Love. I like this series because you get to see a little glimpse inside who the person is by showing just five favorite things from around the home. Families and friends are a given – these five things go a little further and are just for fun! Be sure to visit Emily’s site and show her some love. Thanks for asking me to do this Emily!

Grass cloth wallpaper on a ceiling sounds so weird…until you see this amazing master bedroom that Emily Clark recently did!

Here is the master bedroom before. Not a whole lot of life or room to work with so the remaining furniture was rearranged, new pieces were brought in and a lot of color and texture was added!

Check it out – amazing, right? The bold ceiling with that pendant is definitely my favorite. My first thought? Bless the wallpaper installer’s heart! Painting a ceiling is bad enough, much less trying to wallpaper it.

I love that the bed is in the same place yet looks completely different! The upholstered headboard is a great choice – much softer and prettier to me.

Emily painted this piece and is perfect for more storage and a great console for the TV. You know I’m digging that orange too, aren’t you? 🙂

You have to go to Emily’s site to check it all out! I love following her blog and seeing the designs she has for her new house, as well as her clients’ homes. Her blog format is one of my favorites – a lot of home style with a little personal info as well (she’s pregnant with twins!).
