HOW TO RESIZE A RUG

How to Resize a Rug / 7th House on the Left

A few weeks ago when we brought home the lamp, we also lucked out and found an awesome graphic navy wool rug for the foyer. When I held it up in the store, I wasn’t sure if it was even the right size for the space but when I laid eyes on it, I knew it had to be ours. It was originally priced at $220 and marked all the way down to $60. Hello! When we got to the…

EASY LINEN STORAGE SOLUTION

Easy Linen Storage / 7th House on the Left

In an effort to be one step closer to having every nook and cranny in the entire house organized, we decided to get the linen closet in order this week.

PAINTING THE TOWN RED

Red Front Door / 7th House on the Left

Okay, so we didn’t necessarily paint the town red. Just the front door. Our current mission is to spruce up the foyer and turn it into a real, bonifide, cozy, inviting entry. As we mentioned on Monday (in this post), we were given the chance to pick the brain of one of our favorite designers, Sabrina Soto (Ashley is still having random fangirl fits). During our Q+A session, she mentioned that painting the front door would add some needed visual…
