Kitchen Makeover Reveal

I've been promising to post this kitchen makeover reveal for weeks, and I finally decided done is better than perfect, haha! I was planning to get some pro photography and really "do it right," but as it turns out, my iPhone and a little Lightroom "magic" works just fine.

Foyer/Living/Dining Room Reveal

Greetings, friends! We're taking a break from fashion today for another room reveal! I debated splitting this post into 2 or 3 parts, but I ended up putting them all together, so it's a long one. These areas of my house are all open to one another, so I thought it made sense to group them together.

Family Room Reveal

It was so much fun sharing my home office reveal with you last week, and your enthusiastic responses made me that much more excited to share the rest of my rooms. In fact, I'm forcing myself to spread them out a little bit more than I really want to, haha! My plan is to share one a week. In case you're just tuning in, we moved over the summer, so this house is still fairly new to us. I shared my home office reveal last weekend, and today I'm sharing my family room with you!

My Home Office Reveal

I'm super excited to share my home office makeover/reveal with you today! My vision for this room was to make it a functional and pretty space to work with a touch of glam... in other words, an office befitting a fashion blogger. You'll have to tell me how I did!

Summertime Family Room Makeover

This post is so long overdue. I started working on updating my summer decor months ago, but it was a slow process. I have finally finished, and just last week (yes, I am DEAD SERIOUS) put the last of the holiday decorations in the attic. In my defense, the decorations were not still on display,...

Designing A Functional Rec Room

When Raymour & Flanigan reached out to me and offered to help us make over a room in our home, we had a big decision to make. (HINT: This was not a “yes” or “no” decision. We were ecstatic to participate.) The question was, WHICH ROOM? Several rooms in our home could use updating, but we finally...

Living Room Makeover

The Living Room Makeover is COMPLETE. For now anyways. I still want to get a new couch someday, but we are saving for a deck. Boo. I mean yay, a deck. But boo, no couch. Any. Who. Remember the before pictures? Nolan Painting came and gave us a whole new look with Benjamin Moore’s Whitall...

The Living Room Makeover Rages On

Last Thursday, two friendly, well-spoken gentlemen showed up at my house from Nolan Painting to paint my living room. First, let me explain. This is only the second time in our married lives we have hired out a paint job. My husband is a DIY guy at heart. He actually runs a podcast with his...

The Great Paint Debate

I’ve said before that I’m not much of a decorator. I certainly know what I like, and I think I have a pretty good eye for color and style. I enjoy thumbing through pretty home magazines and gazing at DIY blogs, but I’m not very good at putting all the components together when I’m decorating...
