A dining room with black walls? YES. This is probably my favorite room I have ever designed. The walls were rich with contrast, the wood warmed everything up and the Persian rug tied all of the old and new together.
Once upon a time, we lived in a creaky old Victorian with an earthy, sage green living room. This room went through so many different styles, colors and furniture arrangements while we lived at this house, but we sold it exactly like this, couch, sectional, and floor lamp included in the sale!
We were supposed to be celebrating my husbands 30th birthday and residency graduation on the beautiful beaches of Bermuda, but COVID-19 had other plans. Once we found out our flights were officially cancelled, I went into party planning mode!
Better late than never! Our moody main bedroom makeover is finally here. This was an extremely challenging time to work on a house project. There were shipping delays, stores were closed and we froze spending in case we needed our savings. Not to mention, I was only living at our house for about 20% of the time.
I got the chance to dream up my picture perfect backyard with Wayfair, and it was so much fun! Our new yard is completely empty and full of potential. The size and layout of our one of the things that sold us on our house, so I’m extremely excited to turn it into a little oasis for us to enjoy with friends and family all summer long.
This week was all about my beautiful, new Persian rug. As soon as I got it into the room it completely brought together the look and feel of this space! Rugs can be so tricky, so I wanted to offer a few tips and tricks to picking the perfect one for your space.
It’s week three of the One Room Challenge, and I have been getting so many questions about our bedding! We recently got a new mattress and replaced EVERYTHING. Now it feels like we are sleeping at a hotel every single night.
It’s week two of the One Room Challenge, and we are moving right along on our dark and moody master bedroom transformation. We have a big, blank wall behind our bed and I knew it needed a little extra something. I landed on the idea of DIY board and batten.
I knew I wanted to paint a room black in our new house, but I wasn’t sure which one. I landed on our bedroom and I’m so excited to watch this design come to life (I hope you are, too)!
This quick bedroom refresh happened in just 48 hours thanks to Nectar. My mom texted me these sad photos and asked if I could help spruce up one of her guest bedrooms and of course I said, “Yes!”
The black evergreen paint made for a dramatic background for our cozy bed from Zinus. I love the contrast in this room with the white curtains and lighter bedding. The art, decor and nightstands area all thrifted, and the handmade Persian rug ties it all together!
The most common question I am asked on Instagram is, “What color paint is that?!” It felt like I was answering that question 10x a day, so I decided to do a quick roundup of ALL the paint colors you will find throughout my blog and on my Instagram feed.
