The Market on Chapel Hill Inspiration: Wood & White

By |September 14th, 2015|

The Market on Chapel Hill, formerly known as The Chapel Market is less than a month away, and we’re panicked prepping like crazy.

We are busy shopping for some small finds and we still need a few more furniture pieces.  The girls may kill me if I ask them to paint the base coat on one […]

Introducing Parsons West Collection & A Giveaway

By |July 28th, 2015|

****This Giveaway is now closed.****

One of the most rewarding parts of blogging is meeting new people.  People who do the same things you do.  Love the same things you love.  Work the same way you work.

Marian, a.k.a. Miss Mustard Seed, and I were fast friends after meeting, and we’ve since discovered that we’re basically the […]

Planning a Creative Retreat

By |July 23rd, 2015|

Well we are back from our Creative Retreat. This one was a little different than the last.

Last year’s Creative Retreat, we spent a ton of time on customer quality service and infusing magic into our business, and lots of energy defining our styles individually and as a brand.  And of course we had lots of […]

Well, Happy 4th of July, friends!!

We’re still at the beach enjoying a little time off (Thank you, Jesus), but I wanted to wish you a happy holiday with your family and friends.

And here’s a little throwback to a fun 4th photo shoot we worked on last year…

You can see the rest of the kids’ treat […]

So I have this thing…

By |June 26th, 2015|

So you see….I may have a thing with open shelving.


It helps me stay organized and neat (uh sort of), which I love.

Remember when I first took the doors off my cabinets in the Kitchen?

I feel like this is the best way to show off your pretty dishes and all the other knick knacks around your […]

Flash Back Friday | The First Post

By |June 19th, 2015|

Happy Friday friends!

So today I am taking y’all back to the very beginning. I was sitting in my pj’s on the couch after the longest Christmas day I can remember.  Up to my eyeballs in crumpled wrapping paper, dirty dishes, and new toys for the kids.

That was 6 years ago and I am still amazed and […]

Living Room Inspiration

By |June 18th, 2015|

Good Morning, Friends!

I’ve been wanting to switch up the living room lately, but between Perfectly Imperfect, Factory South, and being a mama, I’ve just not found time.  This hot Alabama summer heat has gotten to me so bear with me. 😉

Here are a couple of living spaces that I’m totally digging right now….



Our Favorite Blog Posts Of All Time

By |June 9th, 2015|

It’s been about five years since I began our blog, and a couple thousand posts later, here we are.

We’ve had a ton of fun working on all these projects, and honestly, looking back, we were able to spend so much time as a family together.  Our kids have been toddling around us and piles of […]

Plus those gorgeous white walls Matt build for us!

People always come into the shop and one of the first things they say is..

“Oh, y’all have changed the […]

French Chair Makeover in MMS Milk Paint

By |June 4th, 2015|

I’ve not had as much time for painting as I’d like lately, getting Factory South open and shooting our pilot, but as we geared up for Troy Fest this year, I had a little time to get creative.

Not much better than a quick transformation with a little paint.

We found this french chair on one of […]

When Life Gets You Down | Kaitlyn’s Things

By |June 3rd, 2015|

And let’s face it… Life can get you down!

Like Mondays and the end of Harry Potter Weekend.. Or those things always seem to get me down.

But when life gets your down.. there is always those certain things that help get us back up.

So with that being said I thought it was only fair to share some of […]

Behind the Scenes with Matt

By |May 27th, 2015|

Boys will be boys.

That’s all there is to it.

So when we first decided to “re-invent” the back of PI, I knew Matt would be more than happy to come in and tear some things down.

As far as him helping us build some stuff for the back… the jury is still out!

Although let’s get real, anyone […]

Casual Tiny Food Party

By |May 18th, 2015|

Since we were in a hotel room the first go around, all of us at PI decided to hang out and watch the re-airing of our Pilot, Sweet House Alabama, last week.

Most of our house is light and bright, but Matt’s home theater (that he finished mostly by himself) is all manly and brown and […]

Sweet House Alabama Pilot Paint Colors

By |May 14th, 2015|

Since there was so much to blog about with the before & after’s of the Herndon’s house, I thought it best to share the paint colors in one spot for you guys.

Because if you made it to the bottom of that last post, you deserve a medal.

Or twelve.

I’ll just list the paint colors used in […]

Sweet House Alabama: The Herndon House

By |May 11th, 2015|

Well here we go.  This post is the one you guys have been asking for since the airing of our pilot, Sweet House Alabama, on HGTV.

This will be quite lengthy, but this project was a huge undertaking and I want you to have all of our sources in one spot.

We were so excited Nikki and Jason […]

Lara’s Porch Makeover

By |May 5th, 2015|


To say that we are absolutely blown AWAY by the comments, emails, tweets, Facebook messages, and Instagram shout outs is the understatement of the year.  You guys are amazing & I literally started crying on Sunday watching your responses start popping up throughout the web–unbelievable.  Filming Sweet House Alabama was incredible, and pulling the house […]

Office Bath Redo & a Coyuchi/Zabada Clean Giveaway

By |April 20th, 2015|

Waay back when, we decided our catch all of an attic could be used for something more.

You know, for important stuff, like for soaking claw foot tubs…

Confession.  I’ve only take one 10 minute bath in that glorious bathtub.

The office bathroom was part of the original attic addition, and when I decorated it back in 2009, […]

Dining Room Decorating

By |February 18th, 2015|

It happens every year.

Sometime in January/February, I start looking around the house and feel the need to switch things up a bit.  My brain starts firing on all cylinders.  We can paint the guest room, and then I need to blog about the planked wall in the bedroom but I should probably paint the bedside […]
