Holiday Home Finds from Trolley Square!

Christmas Kitchen Decor! Love this. Festive Greenery is such a good idea to use on those kitchen shelves and love the wreath on range hood!!The holidays are my favorite time to visit Trolley Square! My husband and I recently enjoyed dinner there and did a little Christmas shopping for our kids & home. I’ll be sharing my full holiday home tour on Dec. 7th, but wanted to share a little preview of some of the lovely decor we picked up. Some of my favorite home shops are all right in Trolley Square… Pottery Barn, Pottery Barn Kids, Williams-Sonoma & Alice Lane Home Collection, plus they have a seasonal holiday decor shop there currently with lots of great Christmas greenery!

And a couple really awesome things I wanted to let you know about are:

1) Photo Tag Shopping Spree Giveaway! Just tag a photo of you shopping at Trolley Square with #mytrolleysquare in the caption (on Facebook or Instagram) and you’ll be entered to win a $100 gift card. They’re giving away one each week!!

2) On Fridays/Saturdays check out the Trolley Square Gift Market! Shop around at your favorite Trolley Square stores then also shop local at the Trolley Square Gift Market– lots of local artisans selling fantastic products!

I hope you all have the most wonderful Thanksgiving with your loved ones. I am THANKFUL for all of you & your support of my blogging + design journey. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Happy Thanksgiving!!

Oh my gosh, that is so stunning. I love your kitchen and that greenery. What store did you find the antlers from? I have been needing some and want real ones. I haven’t been to trolley square in awhile, but will have to make a trip there!

Holiday Recipe: The best EVER Pumpkin Bars!

Best pumpkin bars ever! And they are easy to make. Awesome recipe for Thanksgiving and Fall.

You will thank me for this! haha. Seriously, the BEST pumpkin bars and they’re also easy to make! I love baking these in the Fall. They’re perfect for Thanksgiving too!


  • 2 cups Flour
  • 2 teaspoons Baking Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon Salt
  • 2 cups Sugar
  • 1 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 4 Eggs
  • 2 cups Canned Pumpkin
  • 1 teaspoon Pumpkin Pie Spice
  • 2 teaspoons Cinnamon

Set the oven temp at 350 degrees. Mix the sugar, pumpkin pie spice & cinnamon together in a bowl. Once those ingredients are well mixed, add the remaining ingredients. Mix everything well– a couple minutes in a KitchenAid or Bosch will do the trick. Pour mixture into a non-greased jelly roll pan. Bake @ 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes (you can check it with a toothpick and it is done when the toothpick comes out clean). Let the pumpkin bars cool, then frost.


  • 8 oz. Cream Cheese
  • 1 Stick of Butter
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla
  • 2 cups Powdered Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon milk

Beat all ingredients well (add more milk and/or powdered sugar if needed, should be a creamy, smooth consistency).


#OneRoomChallenge: Camp Lodge Playroom Reveal!

This One Room Challenge project playroom has been a lot of work and a lot of fun! And it’s a home run with the kids so that’s what counts! I mean, really though…. who wouldn’t want an indoor slide, right?! And yes, I did try it out. It was quite fun. I wanted to take that space above the closets and turn it into something fun, so how about a loft with a lodge feel, hidden ladder entrance & a slide coming down… yep, seemed like a good idea to me. The camping/lodge theme was so fun to work with. The camper playhouse is one of my kids favorite things and they also love the big pine tree cutouts I made, because they’re actually chalkboards! We reused the cloud shelves that were custom made for the playroom at my last house. See that reclaimed wood in the lodge loft? Yeah, that’s actually the cool removable wallpaper from Tempaper! I love it because it looks awesome and was super easy to install, plus if I ever want to switch things up with a different Tempaper design, it just peels right off– really though, how cool is that?! All the other product sources are listed below. If you’d like assistance with your kids playroom project send me an email []. I can work with you in person if you’re in Utah or via e-design boards if you’re elsewhere. Kids rooms are one of my favorites to work on!

What is the paint color? I love it!

Rachel@TrailerTrashTreasureTroveNovember 13, 2015 - 7:14 am

This is so, so cute…I want to test out the slide, too! :) I love every single detail, but I think my favorite details are the bear head and the adventurers print.


Jenny @ Refresh LivingNovember 13, 2015 - 12:15 pm

AMAZING! I love that you added a slide and that little loft. What an awesome hideout for kids. I want to come over to play!!

DeliaNovember 13, 2015 - 7:25 pm

Wow! This is just plain awesome! If my kids saw this they’d be jealous, and I recently made over theirs as well :-). I love it!

amandaNovember 14, 2015 - 7:13 am

AMAZING! That slide is so cool. My kids wouldn’t ever want to leave this room. Great work!

McKennaNovember 14, 2015 - 10:38 pm

Oh my goodness! This is so amazing. I can’t believe you seriously got a slide to fit in there!! I love the bench and the wide open floor space as well. Congratulations, this is so fun!

marcieNovember 15, 2015 - 5:51 am

Oh my gosh!! I want to go camping in this playroom. So stinking cute. And those tree stump poofs are the cutest thing ever!!! And a slide??? You are Mom of the Year :)))

celine@aquahausNovember 15, 2015 - 2:09 pm

That is one of the cutest rooms I’ve ever seen. Wow!

Corinna - A Designer At HomeNovember 15, 2015 - 4:38 pm

Oh boy! You 100% win! This is the coolest room EVER!

Erin @ The Organized LifeNovember 16, 2015 - 1:42 pm

How fun is this space? I absolutely love that you have a slide in here!!! Also, that wallpaper is awesome. I would never, in a million years, thought that was wallpaper and not real wood. Great job!

Emily, Our house now a homeNovember 16, 2015 - 7:18 pm

This is a dream playroom!!! I love the wilderness theme, it is adorable! I also did the one room challenge and redid my boys bedroom. We made built in bunk beds. They begged for a slide, I can never show them this. They will not be happy campers. These littles ones with their new playroom are the happy campers I am sure!

[…] Design Loves Detail | Kid’s Space: This playroom is ridiculously cute. The highlight of the space is, of course, the slide- like how cool is that? But, there’s also so many other fun details to the space, too. The camp lodge theme is themey, but in the classiest way I could imagine with an RV play tent and plush campfire set. […]

AnnaNovember 18, 2015 - 9:50 am

Wow, this is such a fun place to be, lucky children!

LauraNovember 23, 2015 - 4:03 pm

You did such an amazing job! I am in love with everything!
Tell me more about those trees- I must have them!!!

adminNovember 25, 2015 - 5:01 pm

Hi Laura! They’re just birch plywood that I drew a tree outline on and had my husband cut out with a saw. Then I sanded them and painted the top part with chalkboard paint and did a stain on the tree trunk. So they’re totally a DIY project. For all 3 of them, the cost was around $50!

#OneRoomChallenge: Week 5

IMG_20151101_110501581Seriously, this week has been crunch time! Everything seems to get crazy this final stretch, but we’re getting so close. This week I got the most awesome Tempaper Designs removable wallpaper installed and I’m so in love with this product! So much easier to work with than I ever imagined. I was going to hire someone to install it, but am so glad I didn’t because it was so simple to install. I just love it! I can’t wait to share the whole space next week, but in the meantime, here’s a little peek at the fun wallpaper. I thought it was just perfect for the camping theme we’re working with. The rest of the finish carpentry is being done as I type this. I’ve been painting like crazy and will get that all finished up over the weekend. Next week is all about final touches and getting photos taken. It’s pretty exciting. I’ve been loving this One Room Challenge & hope you have been playing along too!


Tee @ Beauteeful LivingNovember 6, 2015 - 5:49 pm

Wow, that wall paper looks so realistic! Good luck with next week’s finale! Look forward to seeing this space all done.

#OneRoomChallenge: Week 4


It’s getting real! We have had finish carpentry going on around here and it’s been fun to see the progress. Here’s a little peek at the ladder entry to the upper loft. We had the ladder built into the closet so the door can be shut and you don’t even see it. And the design is very space efficient too. A lot of the products I’ve ordered for this space are starting to arrive and you know that feels like Christmas! Can’t wait. The next week will be crunch time for us because this project is about a week behind schedule! We’ve got lots to do, but it’s so exciting that I’m okay with burning the midnight oil to get it done! Make sure to go check out more great One Room Challenge Projects today to see others progress.

That ladder is fantastic! My kids would flip…and then literally flip off of it and kill themselves :). I can not wait to see the final reveal.
