When life hands you lemons…

clearly the saying ends with, you make lemonade. But seven years ago today, lemonade was far from what we were thinking. We were at one of the lowest point in our lives and our marriage. We were very happy to be seven months pregnant, but everything around us seemed so unstable.  I had just left my job trying to figure out what to do next. Just after that, while Joe was flipping a house, the contractor stole a LOT of money...

Le Mans Kitchen Before + After

Remodels are so fun to share because the before and after is so dramatic. This kitchen is no exception. It is good that our ability to see past things runs in the family because this house was pretty dated when my parents decided to place an offer. The previous owner loved anything Greek and she stopped at nothing. Columns, painted murals on the walls and floors...

Cornelia Master Bedroom Reveal

Can I get a woot woot, we finally have a room done! I kind of felt like this whole process was going to go SOO much faster, but it sure didn't. It turns out designing your own house can be really hard. I know I sound trite and that everyone says that, but it is sooo true. With all that said, I am so excited with how our master bedroom turned out. It is a far cry away from what I...

Shop The Look: Vintage Romantic

Earlier last month I  did a Facebook live that streamed from our old house on Dover, walking everyone through what was for sale. This created a lot of interest in the design of our Master bedroom! We sold the majority of the room, but we still have the headboard and the bench at the end of the bed left! It was taken out for this shoot, but believe it is awesome. Our kiddos used it to climb up on our...

We’ve Moved – Can I get a woot woot!

Major changes in life make me very nostalgic, but also put a new vigor in me that I didn’t even know I had. They excite me in ways that nothing else does. This move has done just that. I am a little (just a little) sad to move out of our old place on Dover that gave so many amazing memories, but I am not typically someone who looks back, but rather looks towards what’s ahead. I guess that is...

Our Living Room Tour

Like all the rooms in our house, our living room has had many different iterations. It hasn't changed as dramatically as some other spaces, but I'm definitely liking it's current stage more than the previous ones! From that picture when we first moved in, I'd say it's come a LONG way. We recently did a lot of work on our fireplace. We added the chevron tile and painted it Farrow and Ball Down Pipe. That has made the biggest difference in the...

House Tour: Stephanie’s Dreamy Nursery

We are eager to share this nursery tour with you! Crystal Blackshaw worked with Stephanie to create a nursery that works for them, their space, and their newborn. This room started with a completely clean slate. After Crystal came to do a consultation with Stephanie, she went away and dreamt up what one possibility for the nursery could be. Crystal came up with this beautiful and eclectic inspiration board. This is one glam nursery! I love the way Crystal can mix so...

My Bedroom Redesign

A few weeks ago we partnered with Relativity Textiles Founder Erin Chlaghmo and Carolina M. Rodríguez to shoot my master bedroom and it was featured in Style Me Pretty. I recently finished putting up this beautiful peacock wallpaper from Relativity and I love how it turned out. I'm finally feeling like this room is done...
