Ever since we got home this fall, I've been really nesting. Three months in Europe was amazing, but three months living in other people's Airbnbs left something to be desired. So now that we're home (and I'm semi-unemployed), I have become a bit obsessive about our space. I want everything to be functional and clean! I Marie Kondo'ed my closet, rearranged our open shelving, organized under the sink, and went on a bit of an Amazon shopping binge for things like hooks and drawers and scrubbers. Mr. Made laughs (or groans) every time he gets home, as I have inevitably bought, rearranged, or cleaned out something. At least I also make dinner!

Along with the cleaning, I have been contemplating a bit of minor redecorating. Nothing huge, but just some new textiles or prints to spice things up a bit. To dip my toes in the water, I worked with Pixers to add a few new things to my space. Pixers is an eco-friendly company that makes wallpapers, murals, posters and prints - pretty much anything you can imagine for your wall. Aneta at Pixers offered to send over a few things for me to try out, and a 40% discount code for you if you want to do the same (use code madebymeg at checkout)!

Pixers offers a bazillian different options and can also print a custom image on just about any of their products. I actually checked out the competition and Pixers has way more options than just about any other site I came across. For me, however, all those options gave me a bit of design paralysis. While I have ALL THE FABRICS for sewing, I really really struggle with home dec patterns. Curtains, bedspreads, and wallpaper all confound me! Does anyone else seem to have this issue? Something about the large scale and longevity of home decor terrifies me.

Embarrassingly, I think I spent about two days obsessively browsing their website (oh the perks of being unemployed). I had originally thought of doing our bedroom wall in a cool wallpaper, and mocked up quite a few options (please excuse the sorry state of our bed, and the weird angle).

Ugh don't you just love those oversized florals? In the end, however, Mr. Made and I couldn't quite find one we agreed on and that felt right for the space. Maybe next time I will work up the courage to do something more drastic.

Instead, I found the perfect print for our bathroom wall. While Pixers wallpaper isn't recommended for spaces with high humidity, our vanity is in a separate room from the shower, so I don't think it will be an issue. I chose this amazing black and gold geometric design that adds just the right amount of class to the space - much needed in our dinky little bathroom! And the best part is that Pixers offers removable wallpaper as well as the more traditional kind, which is perfect for a home dec commitment-phobe like me!

So fun! I also snapped up some posters as a lower-stress way to add some color to our space. While our previous posters had all been in black and white, to add some color and personality. In the living room, I added a cloud print and a cactus print to our art shelves above the couch. I ordered an accompanying frame with the cactus, which was really good quality, and a custom size for the cloud print so that I could fit it in the frame I already had. Their customer service is very accommodating!

In the kitchen I added a frame with a lemon print and another with a cacuts print (I think I have a think for a cacti). I especially like that little cactus, which I think looks like it's flipping you off. Cheeky! Here you can see how I've tried to "style" our functional kitchen shelves with these frames. Mr. Made rolled his eyes at this, too, but everything is so organized I love it!
