Nursery Inspiration

I’ve always looked forward to being a mommy.  As a designer, I’ve always dreamed of designing a nursery for my little one to come home to. If you remember from my big announcement post, we will be finding out the gender of our baby.  But, I decided to go ahead and develop ideas for boy and […]

How to Love Neon in Your Home

The neon trend has taken the world by storm and I FINALLY love using it in my decor.  It brings such a bright punch and a fun statement in every room. I’m over at Makely Home talking about how I went from being a neutral-loving girl to embracing the neon!  Follow my three tips and […]

Lake House Living Room Inspiration

Lake House Inspiration

Well, I’m back from Haven, rested up, and back to work.  I’m sitting here at my desk with a to-do list a mile long.  Gorgeous sunshine is streaming in through the window and I can’t help but wish I was out at the lake enjoying it! So, since I can’t be there today, I decided […]

How Haven Changed it All

I’m headed off to Haven 2014 tomorrow and can’t believe a year has passed since I was last there.  I just had to take a minute and reflect on Haven 2013 and what it’s done for me this year because it really did change it all.  I remember about a year and a half ago […]

Kilim has been a major trend for quite some time now.  Obviously, I love it.  My DIY Watercolor Kilim Wall is here to tell you, I love it.  While I love my wall and its’ kilim-inspired print, there’s nothing like the traditional kilim rugs and the story that they hold. I love the current trend […]

Copper Lantern and Blue Ceiling

Before & After Copper Lantern

We really liked the idea of a copper lantern to hang down over the front door. I loved the copper against all of the colors we’re using: white, gray, dark wood, and blue. You can read more about our inspiration for our exterior renovation here. While I love this look, I was not loving the […]

Entrance Progress

One of my biggest goals with our exterior renovation was to update this poor little entrance that we started with. If you remember from our plans, the goal was to turn this little outdated cottage into more of a craftsman beauty.  Of course with limited resources, that was going to be in small touches, but […]

Our New Front Door: Dark, Stained Wood with White

Our new front door is probably my favorite part of this exterior renovation!  Remember the before? And now our glorious, wood front door just makes it all better! The dark-stained wood against the white is even better than I thought it would be.  I loved this color scheme on the inside of our house: dark […]

Fourth of July at the Lake

Late last night, all of my family gathered at our little cabin by the lake.  For as long as I can remember, the majority of my summer was spent here.  But the 4th was always special. We always came for the entire week and every day was filled with festivities.  As children, we dressed in star-spangled […]
