Favorite Lighting for a Modern Farmhouse Look

Hi there friends! A few weeks ago I shared my new kitchen beams, which I love so very much. I also revealed my new cage lights over the bar, so I wanted to share more about them since I have received so many questions. It’s all part of the 8 Ways to Refresh Your Kitchen, without a full on renovation. I spoke about loving & appreciating the home you have in THIS post and why I thought it might be a good idea to start this series.

Small Space, Big Impact: The Right Furnishings Make A Difference

Hi there friends! I am back to share more about the Better Homes & Gardens makeover I revealed a few weeks ago, which is also in the October issue. This home was a privilege to makeover, I grew so fond of the homeowner Karen, her grandson Liam and the entire crew including Robert & his wife Catherine from Rebuilding Together. There was such a strong connection to this family and the people I worked with that I knew I had to get this right.

DIY Modern Rustic Wood Beams In The Kitchen

Hi there friends! I am back to share my new DIY modern rustic wood beams that we just added to the kitchen! As I was saying in yesterday’s post we are tackling smaller projects in our kitchen to make the space feel more like us and our style. We will hold off on any larger projects until we are ready for the commitment of a renovation, which is not now. Often all a space needs are touches that say you to make it feel fresh again.

Appreciating the Home You Have + Kitchen Plans

Hey there friends! I thought I would pop in and share some thoughts on appreciating the home you have. I think it is so easy to get discouraged by the beautiful & perfect images we see online, many times it leaves us with the idea that what we have isn’t enough. I think deep down we know it is enough but we get sucked in and play the comparison game. And we all know that comparison is the thief of joy.

New Modern Rustic Outdoor Privacy Screen + The Rest Of My Patio

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.

Driftwood Sculptures: A Great Way To Hold Onto Your Summer Memories

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.

Classic Nantucket Inspired Outdoor Table Makeover + Video

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.

Summer Nook + Adding Functional Summer Storage

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.
