Hi there friends!! I am beyond excited to share some super BIG news!! The deserving homeowner makeover I did with BHG & Rebuilding Together , the issue is finally out! It’s in the Better Homes & Gardens October issue and the article is called Home, Sweet Home. Up until now I haven’t been able to share too much with you, just the basics about the collaboration. So you can imagine how ecstatic I am to finally spill the beans!!!
Hi there friends! I am thrilled to bring you another segment of the Seasons of Home Holiday Series. Today we are sharing our Fall Family Rooms & in my case my den. This series is where 16 (amazing) bloggers + a guest blogger (also amazing) share design related holiday posts throughout the season, meant to inspire you as you head into the holidays. They run the gamete from decorating tips, recipes, DIY, tablescapes and so much more!!! A big thank you to our host and my friend, Kristin from Ella Claire.
Hi there friends! Today is the day, I am finally sharing my new outdoor privacy screen!! It’s a nice blend of modern & rustic and it gives us a little more privacy from the road. We live on a corner lot across from the bay on a very small piece of property. So any additional coverage that makes it feel like a retreat away from the rest of the world is exactly what we need.
Happy Monday friends!! I am so excited to share this fun, easy & super stylish summer project with you today! Our collection of driftwood has grown each year, as “hunting for treasure” is a favorite summer pastime. No matter how old my boys get they still like the adventure, you honestly never know what you will find washed up ashore. We have found some pretty awesome pieces lately and it got me thinking, what else could we make with them? I love dimensional & sculptural objects, they add a flavor to open shelving & vignettes that no other accessory can. As I began to see some of the driftwood we found together as art, we all agreed these would make beautiful wood sculptures. Plus it’s a great way to hold onto those summer memories for all to appreciate for years to come.
Hi there friends! I have a fantastic before & after to share with you today! Living close to the water my backyard furniture can get worn very quickly. This year I decided it was time to give my outdoor dining table a refresh. With the help of my friends at Sherwin-Williams I was able to find the perfect color & products for this makeover.
Hi there friends! I hope you all had a fantastic holiday! It seems as though I blinked and summer was actually here. I am enjoying the lazy mornings out on the porch with my early riser (Jack) and Denver. It is really nice to go at a slower pace and not be in such a rush. We have been spending lots of time at the beach already, which you can probably tell by Instagram feed. My stress level has already gone down and I feel like me again, yay! Whether it’s the beach, the pool or all the summer activities, this season comes with a ton of extra stuff. Beach stuff, camp stuff, pool stuff, sports stuff, it can be a lot to think about and put away. So I decided to create some much needed extra storage under my stairway nook.
Hi there friends! Over the last few years I have become super fond of succulents, who hasn’t right?! I love the look, colors, sizes, shapes and the fact that they are low maintenance is a bonus for me. Plus you can find them just about anywhere lately, even the grocery store! I thought it would be fun to create an all season, modern succulent centerpiece planter for my kitchen table. I have teamed up with Minwax for this project and to give my piece a rustic finish.
Today is the day! After much suspense I am finally sharing Sydney’s Teen Room Reveal with Sherwin-Williams and Pottery Barn Teen as a part of National Painting Week!! In my last post I introduced Sydney, shared some before shots and a little peek inside the makeover. In just a few short weeks we transformed a once very boyish space into a girl’s bedroom dream! To be able to create a space for Sydney to enjoy through her teen years brought me such joy, I wouldn’t trade this experience for anything!
Happy Friday! Remember THIS post from a while back when I talked about my love for woven baskets and how I had seen a basket at Target and knew it would make for a perfect pendant light? Well I am finally sharing the details. Let me also say this project is SO easy, anyone can make this. The best part, it makes a really stylish impact with a modern coastal vibe, perfect for this time of year.
Hi there friends! If you are one to spot trends then you have probably noticed the wood leg planter around town. I found them for the first time last year at Target and fell in love. I waited for them to go on clearance, then snatched them up. They have a clean, mid-century modern look that is super stylish & chic but can be a bit pricey. I found THESE a few weeks ago at West Elm and knew right away that they were a great look. The mix of wood and cement were a perfect pairing of textures. Once I saw the price I knew a DIY was in order.
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.
Hi friends, I am happy to share that more progress has been made in the new den! The walls have finally been painted!! I decided to go with a crisp white to highlight the warm woods, organic textures and bold hues in the art and a few accessories. The goal for this room was to create a modern-rustic vibe that felt cool & casual, oh and comfortable too. Last week I revealed part 1, the linen & leather furniture combination from Article and today I am sharing the mid-century modern sideboard that was love at first sight.
