    Before & After: Custom Art Wall in the Bedroom

    I’m finally getting around to sharing part of this awesome makeover I did with one of my BFF’s.

    DECOR: Under the Sea Outdoor Tablescape

    Wow, by the look of my most recent posts, it sure looks like I’ve been partying it up on the rooftop patio this summer.

    SPACES: a boho chic living room makeover plan

    Now that my kitchen makeover is done, I’m itching for more change. Because we’re never happy right? Or is that just me?

    Now that the kitchen makeover is behind me, I’m restless and have moved on to the living room area. There’s nothing wrong with my current living room, in fact it was lovely enough to be featured in Covet Garden Home, but being the decor junkie that I am I like to change things up. It’s […]

  • KITCHEN MAKEOVER: our online TV debut with House & Home

    KITCHEN MAKEOVER: our online TV debut with House & Home

    Yes, I refer to my new kitchen and I as a “we”. God knows we spend enough time together, share an apartment and take a lot of selfies together. I think that pretty much sums up life as a couple. My kitchen was recently remodeled using a local service similar to Remodel Works, and I […]

    You all know how much I love giving old furniture a new life and new home. I’m usually a real thrift store hunter – you know, going through LOTS of rough stuff before finding those diamonds.  Every so often though I’m not so much in the mood to hunt and kinda just want to look at […]

    And we have crossed the finish line people! The kitchen is done!  All that was left was the not-so-small job of making the waterfall butcher block island which I was secretly not looking forward to so there was some procrastination.
