When we bought our current house, the main bedroom bathroom design was basic. Like the rest of our house, the bathroom was painted neutral gray. I soon found myself itching to revitalize the space.
Craving community, I reached out to my dear friend Lauren Koster to collaborate on an intimate dinner for a wonderful group of women. Being late fall, we envisioned something moody and harvest-like and it couldn’t have turned out better!
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!
I can’t believe I’m writing a blog post on family planning! For as long as I can remember, I have wrestled with the idea of having children. I’ve never felt that urge or tug on my heart to become a mother until after we got married. And when all of our friends started having children, something changed for me.
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!
Medicine is HARD. The amount of education and training a doctor has to go through is overwhelming, and I think most individuals know that, but what they don’t know is how hard it can be on the spouse.
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.
With the COVID-19 pandemic limiting travel, I have no idea if we will be able to take our trip in July, but we are hoping for the best. I bought these adorable Target swimsuits just a few days after surprising my hubby with plane tickets!
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.
