World Market Furniture Sale

When I’m not thrifting home decor items, I’m at World Market! When we moved into our new home this summer, I found myself popping over there or browsing online quite a bit, especially when we decided on global inspired decor for living room (see the photo of our living room above).

Funfetti Pumpkins

Introducing the world’s easiest and most feminine Halloween DIY: funfetti pumpkins. If you are a color enthusiast like myself, you will love having this pumpkin around the house. This took me all of 10 minutes and $5 to create.

Pink Kitchen Rug

Can we just take a moment to talk about my obsession with rugs? I can’t tell you how many hours I’ve spent browsing rugs online, especially when sites like BazaarVelvet.com exist. My God, there are so many beautiful ones out there! We need a lot of rugs so I started with the rooms we use the most right now, like our kitchen.

I was highly inspired by this and this image on Pinterest.

DIY: Arabic Welcome Sign

 I recently realized that I don’t have anything in my home that represents my culture or background. There are little things here and there around the house that I picked up during my visits overseas but nothing really that stands out. I love to download fonts for my blog from this website and was excited when I found an Arabic inspired font using English letters.

My Favorite Home Decorating Ideas

I’ve been so busy lately, if you threw a random date at me I can probably tell you which day of the week it falls on without looking at a calendar. That’s how much I’ve had to keep track of in my planner these days. The blogger solution for a busy life and no time for creativity? Why, share all of the google images I’ve saved in my bookmarks.

Dina’s Decor: Marbles and Frames

{wall collage using photos we took, except for one}

After a brutal winter mostly spent indoors my sister/roommate and I came to the realization that our living room set up needed to be tweaked. We needed a new bookshelf and desperately needed additional wall hangings and photos, something to make it feel warmer and more inviting.
