Master Bedroom Window Makeover

Hi there friends! Do you like a good makeover story?! As promised, I am finally sharing my master bedroom window makeover!! I have no words to express how much I LOVE my new natural shades from LEVOLOR!!! These windows were begging for some organic texture and a break from the monotony of the cream. The wheat tones bring the outside in and connects us to the coastal hues right outside our door.

BHG Style Maker Event + What It Means To Me

A few weeks ago I had the privilege of attending the Better Homes & Gardens Style Maker event in Brooklyn, NY. This was my 4th time attending, I am always grateful for the opportunity and for the recognition of being a Style Maker. This year the event was at Hotel 1, a picturesque location right next to the Brooklyn Bridge. This hotel was A-MAZING!!! It was a great spot to spend the day learning, networking and catching up with friends.

Woven Lights + A DIY Of My Own Using A Target Find

Happy Friday friends! Do you ever fall head over heals for something and search for ways to bring it into your home (or life) just because you are so enamored by it? I know instantly when I love something but it can take some time before I actually take the plunge. My mind can be everywhere with decorating, I see so many things I adore on a daily basis, that I have to constantly reign myself in. And decide if it’s something I am loving for the moment, just because it’s on trend or if it truly speaks to my style. Otherwise, I know it will eventually go in the donate pile. Target is the one place I have to have total self control, anyone else with me? I walk in with my list and find myself stalking the home décor isles over and over again. The good thing is, if I find something I usually leave, unless it’s small and will go back if I can’t stop thinking about it. I recently did this with a basket, I kept walking past it, thinking I loved the composition but where would I use it. Of course I left (many times) and just yesterday went back after 2 weeks and bought it. I will come right back to this.

5 Things I Realized Over The Holiday Break

The holiday break went by way too fast, didn’t it?! There was so much build up & prepping and then poof, it was over. With the work load of the blog, projects, house tours and activities for the boys before hand, I was REALLY READY for some down time. I was in super speedy mode for weeks before hand, I am sure you were as well. Phew, I panic just thinking about all of it. Being away I realized some things….

The Room Switch Up + Design Plan (Advice Needed)

I have been back and forth on something & thought I would share with you my dilemma in the hopes it brings clarity. There has been a lot of debate as to whether or not to switch up my dining room for a den/study area. I really do LOVE my dining room but it is rarely used. Most of our dinners are spent at our kitchen bar and if we have small gatherings it is spent in the kitchen huddled around the bar. On birthdays and holidays, when we host we do use it but I know I can create other seating areas to compensate.

BHG Stylemaker Event At The Gramercy Park Hotel

I have been blogging for about 5 years now and I still want to pinch myself each and every time I get an opportunity to be a part of something that I could have only imagined in my wildest dreams. To say I am grateful is an understatement. Who would have thought when I began this crazy journey, which I had NO clue what I was doing, that I would one day be writing this article about the Better Homes & Gardens Stylemaker event I attended.

Modern Farmhouse Dining Tables

Happy Friday friends! Lets talk modern farmhouse dining tables. I have bounced around getting a new table since we moved into our house 6 years ago. Back then everyone seemed to have these beautiful rustic farmhouse tables & I was pretty smitten. Then I realized I actually liked my cream table, plus everything I looked at seemed to not be long enough, the right color I was looking for or style. Honestly I think it was my subconscious and my gut saying to be grateful for what you have. I also think I get connected to things and for a person that had a lot of hand me downs growing up, there is a part of me that feels guilty letting something perfectly fine go. Needless to say, it’s time. Here are the top 10 farmhouse table contenders that made the list.
