Ava’s Room Sources

By |August 5th, 2013|

It seems I’ve had a month of celebrating friendship, and my heart feels like it could burst…but more on that soon.

I spent the weekend with Marian, Ashley, and a slue of other fabulous friends and bloggers at Haven.  Our advanced painting class went really well both days, and it was incredible […]

Ava’s Room Reveal

By |July 30th, 2013|

Hello my lovely friends!

We just made it home from a quick weekend getaway to the beach, but I couldn’t wait to show you Ava’s room reveal today!!

This was little Lou’s (her nickname) room a couple of years ago, and honestly isn’t a totally fair “before,” because this […]

dreaming of a white kitchen

By |July 15th, 2013|

Good Monday to y’all!  I’m thrilled to start the week, as I’ve dubbed this one my “slow week for the summer.”  Ha!

We’ll see what I can do to change that, as I know I probably will.  On to business today…

If there’s one room in our house, that I would […]

Coastal Bedroom Updates

By |July 12th, 2013|

With all the rain at the beach, we got a lot of little projects done at the condo last week.  Remember what our bedroom looked like before…

Some of the furniture was beautiful, just a little orange and dated, so it was staying with a little updating.  We have several […]

Swimming at Sunset & Freshly Painted Walls

By |July 1st, 2013|

The last few days are a blur, really.

Isn’t it funny how that happens?

You plan and hope and wait for a few days to remain still, and really, they bend and blur together like all the others.

So is life, and while it’s passing much faster than […]

the beach house: casual coastal meets hollywood regency

By |June 5th, 2013|

When mom and dad bought their current condo (formerly my grandparents’), we were simply thrilled to have a (FREE!) place to go for quick weekend getaways.  I grew up heading to Panama City Beach, so while I sometimes I dream of a house in Watercolor, we are perfectly content to enjoy this space with our little […]

Good morning, friends!

I didn’t really mean to disappear last week, but it was actually a happy accident.

After the market, which I’ll blog about very soon, we were exhausted.  I had a lot of resting, cuddling, and reading to catch up on, plus lots of behind the scenes work for our online shop & blog.

After the […]

Beach House Decorating Project

By |April 22nd, 2013|

So, my mom and dad recently bought my grandparent’s beach condo in Panama City Beach, Florida.  It’s a 3 bedroom, 2 bath, with a great living space, small dining room, a huge Master dressing room that we plan on converting to a kids’ bedroom, and a decent size kitchen.

The good news […]

Grayson’s Bedroom Updates with Target Threshold

By |April 2nd, 2013|

A finished space is all in the details.

When Target asked if we’d work with them to check out their new Threshold line, I was game–

Grayson’s room has been almost done for quite some time now.  That almost drives me crazy…I want to finish the details.

Foyer Updates with Threshold by Target

By |March 26th, 2013|

Our foyer has been evolving since we began revamping our home from dark to light.

A couple of years ago…

And this past Christmas…

We bought the longer dresser from a friend, and the foyer began making sense.  We then added our Between You & Me […]

Ava’s Bedroom Progress & Threshold by Target

By |March 19th, 2013|

Hi friends!

The last time you saw Ava’s room, we had finished ripping out and laying new floors, and adding board & batten.

We finished the hard part, and I kind of left it alone for a while.  We moved her bed back in and her toys…and life resumed. […]

Shop Talk: Spring has Sprung

By |March 14th, 2013|

Well, it’s been a wonderful couple of weeks at the shop…there’s been a buzz in my brain for some marketing & fun events we have coming up (more on that at the end of our post).

We have infused some spring touches in the shop, and I wanted you to […]

Good Monday morning, friends!

You guys probably know Monica & Jess at East Coast Creative….well, they are now hosting the FUN Creating With The Stars challenge at their place.  There are 12 contestants paired with 12 “stars” to create a project per week.

While I have no similarity to […]

working on ava’s room & our online shop

By |March 6th, 2013|

Good morning, lovelies!

We’ve been up to our eyeballs in projects around here, and I can’t wait to share some of them with you!  Between the actual work AND finding my good tripod, I’ve been on cloud nine.

Or twenty.

Or something good.

I’ve spent a good […]

some living room updates

By |February 18th, 2013|

Walking around the house last week I realized I haven’t shown you much of our house lately.

Hardly at all, really.

We’ve been in shop mode, but we’re also in a “finishing things up” phase around here.

Matt and I are notorious almost finishers.  We work crazy hard, knock out […]

writing room redo reveal!

By |August 7th, 2012|

Two years ago, I began this blog amidst an attic renovation.  Our once forgotten dumping ground (through sweat, money, and more sweat), became a beloved retreat for me, the writing room.

It looked a little different on the first reveal, but I showed you how it looked last […]

lighting for the writing room

By |August 6th, 2012|

So, it went something like this.

Matt:  The room looks AWESOME, honey.

Me:  Thank you, I love it!  Are you glad we did it??

Matt:  Totally–you’ll really be able to work in here now.  I love the _______, and the ________!

Me:  Aw, thanks, sweetie.

Matt: […]

Good Monday morning, guys and gals!

I’m SO excited about today’s post, probably because I am so happy to have met these two cutie-pies…

They’re the gals behind East Coast Creative (formerly Real Housewives of Bucks County), and they could not be any cuter.  We were on the Nate […]

wood walls

By |June 26th, 2012|

It’s been a while since our latest home reno, and Matt and I have enjoyed the little break of just living.

Ya know what I mean?

However, our built-in building, room-painting, nail-gunning fingers are twitching to get started on a new project.

Our list is looong, but we have already […]

summertime decorating

By |June 19th, 2012|

I love summer.

If I could be a season, I think I’d be summer.

A little hot-tempered, maybe, but I’ve got the beach, too.

Anyway…ahem, I love summertime, and I have to bring a little of that vibe inside each year.

Sometimes I style more literally than […]
