Welcome to the Club

Getting New Moms Adjusted to Mommyhood One Step at a Time

Group Home

We rent our apartment, so we don't do a whole lot in terms of decorating. But that hasn't stopped me from making folders (online and off line) and boards on Pinterest and tearing out pages of magazines with rooms, colors, furniture, everything that inspires my design and decorating mojo.

I've often seen a picture - maybe of nothing related to home décor at all - and love the feeling of it, the colors and think "How could I make a room feel like that?" And now I can...it is so cool. There is this desktop thingamajig (I know there is a word for it) called Chip It. You go to the web site from Sherman Williams called Let's Chip it!, and you drag the button thing to your tool bar. Then, when you are on Pinterest and see a fabulous photo or you spot a cool photo on some other site, you click on the button, and -- bam! -- it pops up this cool window that gives you all of the paint you would need to recreate that color-combo in your home. It is really super cool (have I said that already?)!!

If you have a photo that inspires you - like this one of a group of moonfish when we visited the Monterrey Aquarium - just upload it on the Let's Chip It! site, and it will do the same thing. See! It gives me all of the colors, as well as gives coordinating hues, to make a whole room based on that one photo! I can take it with me to look at towels or pillows or paint or whathaveyou.

So often, when we redecorate, we loose sight of what we love, what makes us all gooey inside and just buy other stuff that we aren't sooo jazzed about. Having this neato tech aide and printing out the custom-made chips can save you money the next time you want to redo a room (or the whole house).

Share a photo that inspires you and makes you feel fabulous -- and maybe chip it!

I am feeling like painting my room and adding grays and purple.. but I have to see if its in the budget. The only thing with the white is that I know how I would be, telling everyone (specially the kids) DONT GET ON MY BED! lol
