  1. Those little details make a HUGE difference! We actually just learned how to switch out an electrical outlet over here – woohoo! We haven’t tackled any switches yet, but Bryan wants a dimmer in his office, so I think that will be next!

    1. Electrical outlets are still tricky I think. I’ve done it wrong many times and had to have an electrician fix it.

    The devil is in the details! Amazing what a difference those little changes make, but you’re right – makes everything look clean and updated. Love it!

    Oh I have a ton of small jobs like this in our new home. They are so time consuming and it seems like no one notices but me. Anyway, I need to stay at it.

    1. Totally time consuming which is why I’m not completely done with them yet either

  5. Beautiful changes Julia. I love the brass light switch colors and your blue and b&w combo is so chic. Great tips! Oh and that wall hanging in the foyer…. gorgeous.

  6. Love, love all your posts and my girlfriend puts diapers on her 14yr old poodle. They work and they look so cute!!

    1. Oh thanks Kathy! I hope the diapers will work for her too

  7. Yes, totally agree, and Magic eraser is my ‘best friend’ when it comes to cleaning all over the house! I upgraded some of my light switch plates by wrapping them up in coordinating wallpaper or gift-wrap! Always a fun and easy project to do, but I agree, those brass ones are oh-so-chic!

    1. Magic Erasers for the win!

  8. It always amazes me how a small change can make a big impact. I’ve changed all our light switches and air vents in our home a couple of years ago and I love it. They make such a difference.

    1. I still need to change a couple more. I’m dragging my feet ๐Ÿ˜‰
