Game Day Appetizers: Perfect Pre-Game Eats for Football Fans

game day appetizers

Finally, we’re getting a little break from the sweltering heat! The weather is getting a little cooler and there’s even a gentle breeze on some evenings. These are hints that my favorite time of year is here. Of course, I’m talking about football season! I was born and raised here in Alabama where football is a way of life – especially college football. We’re fanatical about “our team.”  People schedule life events like vacations, weddings, and probably even the birth of children around the college football schedule. Every Saturday for the next few months, will consist of family, friends, football and FOOD.  Just in time for kickoff of the SEC football season, I’m sharing a few simple, but tasty Game Day appetizers for your tailgate party.

Allow Me To Re-Introduce Myself

interiorstyle

It’s been almost a year since I tossed the fear of failure to the side and started my little blog. My hope was that I’d be able re-connect with something I’ve been passionate about since I was little girl – making things pretty, i.e decorating. I also hoped that a few people (outside of my immediate family) would read it, enjoy it and perhaps be inspired. I’ve accomplished both goals and learned so much along the way. I mean I didn’t even know what WordPress was a year ago and I built INTERIORStyle by Kiki by myself (thanks to tons of late night google searches). I must say, it looks pretty damn good around here! And I’m looking forward to taking things to the next level. I want to remain connected with my current INTERIORStyle friends and make new friends along the way. I also want give you even more tips, advice, and inspiration to help you create a beautiful space that reflects who you are. Since I want to be your “partner in design” I think it’s only right that you know a little more about who I am. So, allow me to reintroduce myself by sharing 20 things you probably don’t know about me.

Why I’m Obsessed With Bar Carts…And You Should Be Too!

If you’ve been following INTERIORStyle by Kiki for a while, you know how much I adore Hollywood Regency aka Old Hollywood design. As a little girl, I would watch old black and white movies with my great Uncle Johnnie. I’d daydream about being the beautiful lady with the furs, the sparkly jewelry and the fancy bedroom (yes, even then I loved decorating). Thanks to Netflix, I re-discovered my love of black and white movies and developed an obsession with Bar Carts.

Coffee (Table) Talk: Style a Coffee Table in Four Steps

style a coffee table

For most of us, the living room is the heart of our home. It’s where we relax after a hard day, entertain family and friends during holidays, or cuddle up with our sweeties for movie night.   Because a lot of the activity in the living room centers around the coffee table, it can sometimes become a catch-all for everything –  mail, keys, old magazines, lost toys, you name it. Definitely NOT sexy!  Your coffee table should be functional ( you need somewhere to place your “sips and apps” during your next house party).  But, a little coffee table decor can also add a shot of style and personality to your living room decor.  In today’s post, I’ll show you how to style a coffee table using my simple four step formula.

The Grown Ups Guide to Decorating with Pink

Decorating With Pink

I am a 37 year old woman. And I still LOVE pink! There I said it. I’ve loved pink every since my Barbies got that pink convertible for Christmas. There is plenty evidence that I haven’t been able to let my passion for pink go – from my pink lunch bag, my workout bag and even pink computer mouse. As a matter of fact, I’m in the process of creating a decorating plan for my bedroom and, yes, I will be featuring pink. I know you may be thinking “Pink? Really? Who are you Elle Woods? Your room is going to look like a baby nursery!” Au contraire mon frere, the color pink can be used to create a warm, sophisticated space without being overly feminine. You just have to know how to do it the right way. In today’s post, you’ll see that pink isn’t just for little girls.

Color Therapy: How Room Color Affects Your Mood

room color

Remember the color-phobic friend I talked about in my last post? Well, I finally convinced her to inject a little personality into her home by adding color. I almost have her onboard to actually paint the walls! Now that that she’s totally excited about giving her home a makeover, her next question to me was, “what colors should I use?” Now, this seems like a fairly simple question, right? Just tell her to pick her favorite color(s) and go wild. Not quite. Yes, room color can be a great way to reflect your personality. However, with a background in psychology, I know that colors can also influence your mood, activity level and emotions in very different ways. For that reason, my advice is to choose room color wisely. Before you buy that red paint for your bedroom or the blue rug for your kitchen, consider how you want to feel in that particular room. To help you make the right color choices for your next decorating project, I’m sharing how 5 popular colors can influence your mood.
