Pool House Makeover

By |August 5th, 2014|

Today is filled with organizing and preparing the playroom for school.  I’ll be filing and sorting and tossing old worksheets and getting puzzle pieces reunited. It’ll be the best and worst kind of day.  Worst in that I’m sure I’ll step on a million lego pieces and become overwhelmed at approximately 10 a.m. before getting […]

Reclaimed Wood Shelving & The Backsplash

By |July 31st, 2014|

The kitchen is mostly done, with only some lighting and decor left to install.  Counters are in, cabinets are in, and just a week or two ago, we finished the backsplash & some open reclaimed wood shelving over the desk area.

I’m in love with how it’s all turning out.  We went with basic white subway […]

Kitchen Cabinet Updates

By |July 25th, 2014|

Speaking of my favorite white paint color, here is a peek of the kitchen progress…

As you can see, the process isn’t quite finished, but we are getting close.  I wanted to share a little sneak peek with you here…I’m in love, love with the simple shaker-style cabinet doors and how clean it all feels with […]

Kitchen Demolition

By |June 13th, 2014|

It’s zero dark thirty here and I’m up, piddling around in my gutted kitchen.  I made the first cup of coffee in the laundry room, and cleaned up more trash.  My brain couldn’t shut down or stay shut down, rather, so up I came.

I secretly love (and hate) those mornings when […]

Nautical Style (And a Before & After)

By |June 9th, 2014|

Well we are beginning the process of our kitchen renovation tomorrow morning, so I’ll be snapping pics all along the way during the process and giving you more details of our plans on the makeover.

Until then, I thought I’d share a quick glimpse of Lance’s room at the beach house.  When […]

$100 Beach Bathroom Reveal

By |June 4th, 2014|

Being at the beach last week was wonderful, and on top of all the beauty, we got work done, too.

I showed you the in-between bathroom the other day, and it had come a long way from this fluorescent peach wonder.  After tackling a few more budget-friendly projects last week, […]

Beach Condo: Budget-Friendly Bathroom Updates

By |June 2nd, 2014|

Good Monday morning, lovelies!

Last year, my parents bought a beach condo.  We started decorating, little by little, and on a tight budget.  I love some peach, but this bathroom was a bit much for me, and oh, that shower curtain.

I’m sorry if you have the same said […]

Marble Slabs

By |May 28th, 2014|

Good morning, lovelies!

We’re back today with a decorating post…I have so enjoyed writing about our trip to South Africa, and I couldn’t begin to cram it all into one post.  I probably have one post left on the design style there, but I wanted to give you a kitchen update.

Glam Decorating Inspiration & Sherwin-Williams Giveaway for You!

By |May 13th, 2014|

When the people at Sherwin-Williams asked if I wanted to work with their new palette, HGTV HOME™ by Sherwin-Williams Softer Side color palette, I began racking my brain to decide which space to makeover/improve/tackle.

I’ve been at a makeover stand-still in our home for a while, because honestly, sometimes you just need […]

Julie’s Bedroom Reveal Sources

By |May 10th, 2014|

Hey friends!

We’re back home in the states and the trip couldn’t have been more amazing.  I’ll be posting the photos soon, and sharing more about the trip.  It was truly an amazing experience that I have to record here!

Thank you for your comments and tweets and questions about Julie’s […]

Kitchen Makeover in the Works

By |April 18th, 2014|

The only time I’ve shared my kitchen on the blog was waayy back when I was just beginning.

Beginning my blog, my journey to create a home that felt like us.

It was after I took the doors off of our top cabinets for a quick (and free!) makeover.

Southern House with Contemporary Twist

By |April 15th, 2014|

I got a text yesterday from my cousin, Jennifer, that went like this…”wish you’d come over and style my hutch.”  After laughing out loud (because Jennifer is a talented decorator herself), I told her I’d be by later.

The hutch looked great as is, but we just shifted a few things around. […]

Simple Spring Tablescape for the Real-Life Hostess (& a Free Printable for you)

By |April 3rd, 2014|

Well, this post probably would have gone a little differently, but I’ve been down with a kidney stone this week (yay!), so I all but left it with Julie & Kaitlyn to shoot our fun spring tablescape.

We started our day with a business meeting and I began setting up […]

Serene Bedroom Decorating Ideas

By |March 5th, 2014|

Normally when I want to plan a design board for a space, I need specific products and I used photos from my house.  I typically work in photoshop and while it’s awesome, it does take quite some time to pull together a design board.

Lisa’s Homeschooling Room Redo

By |February 14th, 2014|

Speaking of Lisa, and her wonderful-ness, I couldn’t wait to help her with a couple of spaces in her home.

First up today, the school room.

This room was already functioning well, as she has two little ones and one grade-school age child.  She uses it for school with […]

Office Ideas & Inspiration

By |February 10th, 2014|

Ever since an eventful morning heading to the airport last week (more on that soon), Lisa and I have been working away in her and her husband’s soon to be elegant and sophisticated office.  For those of you who don’t know, Lisa is one of my very dearest friends in the world (I […]

Boy’s Room Design Board–the plan for Gray’s room

By |January 6th, 2014|

Good Monday morning to y’all!

I’m anxiously/excitedly preparing for a 21 day nutritional challenge (which I’ll share more about later this week), so I’m cooking chicken ground turkey by the pound ahead of time and packing 90 florets of broccoli into individual containers today.

I really am excited.  Promise.

I’m […]

Pottery Barn PINterior Decorating Challenge

By |November 14th, 2013|

I’m a bit of a reformed big box store shopper.

Decorating on a budget doesn’t always allow for brand new or at least not all at once.  Because of my need to make my home my own, and because I fell in love with creativity and working with my hands, I am a DIY’er at heart.

You […]

Favorite Home Decor Coffee Table Books

By |August 22nd, 2013|

You know my love affair with books.  Vintage books, literature, children’s books, decorating books–you name it, I’m reading it.  The more into design I’ve gotten, the larger my decorating book collection has grown.  Nothing makes me happier than a cup of coffee and a flip through one of these inspiring friends of mine.

Guest Bath Peeks

By |August 13th, 2013|

We have been done with our guest bath redo for a few weeks now, but I can’t seem to get myself together to actually photograph the thing from start to finish!  It’ll get done soon, I hope, but I thought you might like to see a couple of sneak-peeks into the space:
