DIY Conversation Heart Magnets

A sweet little token of love, make a set of conversation heart magnets for Valentine's Day | homeologymodernvintage.com

Conversation Heart Magnets –  Conversation hearts may not have much going for them compared to a decadent box of French chocolates, but their fun and flirty messages win in the Fun department every time. Admit it, we all love reading those cheeky quips. So instead of feeling guilty for tossing a perfectly good bag of uneaten candy, I made a set of conversation heart magnets to enjoy all year long.

How to Rock Pantone’s 2016 Color of the Year

2016 Pantone color of the year

How to Rock Pantone’s 2016 Color of the Year in Your Home – So, as I’ve been perusing the world of design and the new color trends for 2016, I was overtly disappointed to see the 1980’s returning in Pantone’s 2016 color of the year. During my flashback I may have thrown myself to the floor as I thrust about like a fish out of water while throwing a tantrum and begging the gods to make it go away. I was completely convinced I was going to pass these colors up, just like I passed up 2015’s marsala and 2014’s radiant orchid. Then something occurred to me. I just painted a guest room in what I was calling blush. But in actuality, it could truly pass for rose quartz. #HeadBumping

Floral Flower Wreath

Floral Flower Wreath – To say that I’ve enjoyed taking a floral arranging course during the dead of winter is an major understatement. Nothing made me happier than playing with colorful flowers for a full four weeks during the cold dreary days of January. It was such a welcome respite. And when we got to the wreath making portion of the class, I was over the moon. Floral head wreaths are such a fun way to create together – whether it be a girls get-together, a mother/daughter day, or in celebration of a major event – it’s just a beautiful way to spend time with the ones we enjoy most.

Exterior Color Choices for the Home Reno

a 1970s home in need of renovation | homeologymodernvintage.com

Exterior Color Choices for the Home Reno – Hey, guys! I’m so excited to be back today in the full swing of the home reno as we begin replacing its old exterior cedar siding. There’s so much racket happening, but in our minds it’s all really good stuff. We’ll soon see a near new home sitting on that plot of land – one that I don’t cringe at when I think of my child living in it – that will be fresh and modern. Today we have to commit to our final exterior colors (aggh!), and I think “A” has hit it spot on with her choices. But first, let’s look back. You’ve seen this image several times, but here again is the home’s exterior in its original condition (plus the lovely new roof):

Make Grocery Store Roses Look Like Garden Roses

Use this simple trick to open up those tight budded floral roses and make them look like they came from an English garden | homeologymodernvintage.com

Make Grocery Store Roses Look Like Garden Roses – I prefer the wild look of an old English rose, the ones that open so big they almost resemble peonies. Floral roses found at the grocery store rarely perform to such a level, preferring to keep their buds tight and their petals hidden away. But I’ve found a little trick that makes a world of difference with these tightly budded cousins. If you want to make grocery store roses look like garden roses, try this simple trick.

Creating a Memorable Holiday Celebration – Holidays are all about getting together with friends and family and taking time to enjoy one another’s company. Formality for the holidays is no longer the steadfast rule, and the trend in entertaining is all about the people. I for one am pretty darned excited about that.

Rustic Modern Fireplace Makeover

Fireplace makeover using Glacier stone ledger from Floor + Decor | homeologymodernvintage

Rustic Modern Fireplace Makeover – With a slew of activities going on around here, the updates in the living room of our daughter’s home renovation have been moving at a snail’s pace. And the lack of progress has been causing some serious anguish in the household since the living quarters had been reduced to the confines of a small dining room. But his past weekend we were finally able to strike this project off the list (minus new floors) when we completed the rustic modern fireplace makeover. And, my dear peeps, I can’t tell you what a difference this one upgrade has made in the home! I feel like the house is finally smiling again. The new stone surround, along with a fresh coat of paint to the interior, has given new life to this home like nothing else could.
