This bunkhouse was so much fun to dream up! The homeowner wanted a gender neutral space for kids that complimented the “outdoorsy” aesthetic of the rest of the home. We painted a faux deer head and added bluebirds for a fairytale vibe that coordinated with the black and white artwork hanging beneath it. We also made the large canvas art ourselves- using a shower curtain. Yes- a shower curtain! We painted over the trees and deer to add depth and texture. We wanted to create a fun place for kids to come visit, explore and relax on vacation.

Fabric Remnant to Wall Art DIY
I fell in love with this piece of linen fabric and immediately saw a masterpiece of artistry in the block print pattern. I decided to frame it. I purchased a poster frame (yes, that lovely gold frame is actually a poster frame from Target) and used Velcro tabs to adhere the linen fabric to a piece of plain white fabric, then I framed it with the gold frame. What do you think? Can a gorgeous fabric remnant become a beautiful piece of wall art? I think so!
New Build in Aurora
I had the pleasure of designing the theme, color pallet and furnish this entire, newly built home. The homeowner was a dream to work with and is very happy with the look and feel of his new home. He wanted a Rustic, Modern Farmhouse with a touch of Industrial flair. I think we hit the mark.

Succulent Wall Art DIY
I have been working on a new project for a client building a large piece of natural wood and succulent wall art. Finally….we are completely finished and ready to deliver and mount on this baby on the wall. This succulent wall art is going to be the focal point on an accent wall in a new build I’ve been decorating for a bachelor. I like it so much I think I might make one for my own house.
I love the onset of fall. It’s my favorite season…. sweater weather, boots, bon-fires, leaves changing, pumpkin spice everything, rich warm toned colors…. what’s not to love? I’ve started decorating my home and front porch for fall. I’m leaning toward the “less is more” simplicity this year. I feel like it gives touches of seasonal vibes while maintaining some elegance.
Vintage Truck Christmas
Pillows on my kitchen bench adds a little festive flair. 🙂 I found this pillow cover at Hobby Lobby and painted the truck onto it. It was a little tricky with the burlap texture but I’m happy with the end result.
A Boy’s Ski Themed Room Design
My son’s ski themed room is finally starting to come together. Mountain painted walls? ✔️ Ski themed duvet cover? ✔️ Ski goggle pillow sham? ✔️ Wooden sign pointing to favorite places to ski? ✔️
⛷My little guy is so excited about his new “ski bedding” and loves the pillow sham with ski goggles on it (Thank you @Amazon !!) 🎿Now I’ll need to finish the other half of the room not pictured here. Stay tuned for the complete reveal. 🙂
Pumpkins and Burlap Monograms
A basket of pumpkins for a warm Fall greeting in our entryway. I love to mix different textures; burlap, cotton, a feathered two and something metallic to add some artistic interest.
British Pub themed basement bar
This is an Inspiration Board for a design job I’m doing on a new build. They want their bar to have a British Pub feel. I’m excited about this one! Stay tuned for more photos and updates on this project! 🙂
Update on the “Going Glam” bedroom design
I'm almost through with this bedroom design. I will install a ceiling fan with a chandelier light fixture as soon as it's ready. I think the chandelier will be a show-stopper! :). Here are some photos of the room so far. Enjoy!
