Fall Inspired Living Room Makeovers with Kalaty Rugs

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Kalaty Rug for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

Colors of Fall
I love day dreaming about new ways to makeover my home. If money was no option, I would probably change the look of each room with the change of the seasons. Fall is probably my favorite time of year, and I thought I would share some living room makeover ideas that I came up with featuring the beautiful handcrafted rugs from Kalaty Rug Corporation,

About Kalaty Rugs

The Kalaty Rug Corporation started in the early 1900's in Iran by Mirza Kalaty's grandfather. In 1979, Mirza Kalaty founded the company in the USA and today, him and his five sons run the company. That is four generations of dedication to providing quality handcrafted rugs to the world.

Southwestern Chic Living Room Makeover

Chic Southwest Living Room
I have always loved a subtle Southwest look in a home. The problem? I also like shabby chic decor. So, I meshed them both together to form a living room look that I would love to have in my home. I think the colors in it would play well with the brown walls and white bead board that we currently have in our living room. What really pulls the look together though is the rug. This is the MV-699 Multi rug from the Kalaty Mojave collection in a Southwestern style. I love the subtle nod to the Southwest and the mixture of colors that allow for so many decorating options.

Fall Persian Inspired Living Room Makeover

Persian Inspired Living Room
I love travel, and love being inspired by different cultures from around the world. A Persian inspired look goes perfectly with this Kalaty Rug from the Heirloom collection. The variety of colors in the rug literally open the door to endless decorating possibilities.

Kalaty Rug Corporation has 100's of rug designs for you to choose from, with everything from contemporary modern designs to more authentic antique looks.

Nescafe and Coffee-Mate Now Better Together + Giveaway #NescafeCoffeemate

This post is brought to you in collaboration with Nescafe, all opinions are my own. 

There are some things in life that just go better together. Have you ever noticed that? Peanut butter and jelly, cheese and crackers, politicians and the mute button. Seriously though, some things are just better in pairs. Want to know my ultimate #BetterTogether scenario? This mama and quiet time. That's right, me and a big old dose of quiet time go hand in hand. I crave it. Heck, I need it to stay sane. So, I steal those quiet moments whenever I can. Early in the morning before the boys or puppies get out of bed, late in the evening after they have laid down to sleep, I love for those quiet moments of regeneration, and I break out all my "mom time" essentials like new Nescafe with Coffee-Mate.

Deluxe Ham and Potato Crockpot Casserole #Recipe

One thing I love about Crockpot cooking is coming across new recipes to try out. A while back I came across an old Crockpot meal magazine at a garage sale, and I have had fun adapting the recipes and trying them out. This Deluxe Ham and Potato Crockpot Casserole may not look like much, but it is the epitome of cheesy delicious comfort food. Best thing about it? The boys all loved it, so it is going in our permanent recipe list to make again in the future.

Tips for Packing Lighter + Enter to Win a Trip to New York or LA #Travel

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Atlantic Luggage for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

If I am flying to a destination or with or without children, you better believe I am only bringing a carry on suitcase. If I'm driving I still prefer to pack light and usually go with one small suitcase. With four kids in tow, it is just too much to keep track of if we have a ton of luggage, so over the years I have learned how to pack light. Atlantic Luggage with their lightweight and versatile luggage options wants to help you learn how to pack lighter and possibly even win a family trip for four to New York or LA by entering their sweepstakes. Check out the entry info at the end of this post!
