I first spotted the bedroom of this beautiful home full of wonder and featured in Architectural Digest on Instagram. Just seeing the bedroom made me want to go and check out the rest of the home and I was not disappointed! Homeowners, designer Nikolai Haas and fashion stylist Djuna Bel showcase their love for one of a kind pieces that exude whimsy and it's obvious they are not afraid of color.

Much of North Carolina saw snow this weekend. We only received freezing rain in our neck of the woods, but needless to say the weather is not the best right now. Keeping fingers crossed for a warm up and sunny skies this week. This home tour was a great mood booster for sure! xx

Our Baby Friendly Christmas Decoration in the Living Room

Our Baby Friendly Christmas Decoration in the Living Room- designaddictmom
It's no secret that I absolutely love Christmas time and decorating for Christmas, however, this year with Cheyenne who is quite the busy body, I've had to rethink my approach and reign in on some of the Christmas decorating ideas. For example, I didn't place stockings over the mantel since they would've surely been yanked down by Cheyenne.

The tree is decorated with mostly plush ornaments and some smash resistant ones. I always do some sort of diy crafts and this year making paper chains was one of those diys. I also used it as the tree topper and love how it turned out. The balloons are leftovers from Cheyenne's birthday party, so I thought it fun to use them to style the tree.

Guest Bedroom Receives an Update With Minted Wall Mural

Guest Bedroom Receives an Update With Minted Wall Mural- design addict mom

Our guests are definitely in for a treat when they visit! I recently worked with Minted to update our guest bedroom with one of their beautiful removable wall murals. yes, you read correctly, wall murals. Minted recently launched a line of removable wall murals that are one of a kind artwork created by Minted’s community of independent artists and printed on removable mural panels.  O.K., let's dive into the details of this fun update...

You might remember this post when I first tackled this space. It has definitely come a far way!

And then I added this oversized art to the wall. So, really the guest bedroom looked great prior but you know me and my ever changing ways- i couldn't wait to try one of those beautiful wall murals in here!

Just like prior to painting your walls, you need to prep your wall prior to adhering the wall mural. I removed the art, lightly sanded and got rid of surface debris, then made sure the wall was nice and clean.

I chose the Hawaiian Reef wall mural designed by Caryn Owen. I really love the colors and it goes seamlessly with my home's aesthetic.  The panels have a premium, matte look and are easily removable with no damage to walls. To apply, simply remove the backing, press the panels to the wall with your hands end to end so the design is seamless, and smooth out air bubbles with a credit card.

I switched out the white lamps to black ones because they kind of disappear into the wall and do not detract from that beautiful mural!

We couldn't be happier with the results. If you're planning on revamping a space for the coming year or even for holiday guests, check out the other Minted wall murals. There are so many other beautiful options and i love that they are removable. What do you think of our guest bedroom update?
