Bauhaus Inspired Tablescape

bauhaus inspired tablescapeThe moment I saw these plates at Ikea, I knew that I needed to create a tablescape around them. Splatter paint patterns lend themselves very nicely to a painterly theme, s0 we ran with it! A brush stroke tablecloth, hand painted napkins, and colorful mobiles all combine to create a fun, Bauhaus-inspired look! This look would be perfect for a number of occasions: an artsy dinner party or even a kid-friendly back-to-school party. You can go all out and incorporate all the elements here, or you can tone it down and just create the napkins for your table setting. Either way, the hand painted elements add a lovely organic quality and are sure to impress your guests. So channel your inner child, bust out your paintbrushes, and make your old art teacher proud!

A case of the wi-fi blues and how I solved it!

Faster internet with Eero

As I’ve mentioned many many times before, we live below some of the kindest people in the world. They’re so kind that we threaten never to move out. Ha! Though we love living here, we do have a case of the slow wi-fi blues. We get our Internet from our sweet landlords upstairs and sadly it’s a constant battle of texting “our Internet is out” and “can you restart the router?” to which they happily do, but when you rely on the Internet for your job, the complaining becomes a bit much for both of us, though I’m sure they would never ever admit it.

I was lucky enough to try out the eero, a new system to strengthen your wi-fi and our Internet is now 400% faster!!!! Yes, you read that right, 400%!  See this little white box below? That’s the magic maker. Here’s how it works.
