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.

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 really, really love Carrara marble. I don’t love the price tag, but who does? I decided to try painting my existing countertop and using an Epoxy coating. I had a 90’s guest bathroom that I’ve hated since we moved into our house. I decided to take down the ginormous 90’s mirror, change the lighting and faucet and update the countertop. I’m not quite through with this mini renovation but it’s coming along nicely.
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.
Somehow the subdued, monochromatic hues don’t feel like fall to me. We decided to plant some vibrant yellow mums in our porch planters and add some orange pumpkins and a touch of purple mums as well. Now our porch is starting to feel a little more “Autum-ish”. 🍁.
May your journey always lead you home. I loved these words so much I had to take this wooden sign home with me. These words are very fitting today…. my husband leaves for Korea this afternoon, where he will reside for the next year. This will be a tough day for the kids and I as we say goodbye to him. We will pray for his safe journey, over the next 12 months, and his safe return next August. Military families are very proud of their loved ones and are very strong….even on days like today.
I’ve been working on finishing our master bedroom. For some reason this is the space that I neglect the most. The rest of the house seems to be a priority and our bedroom comes last. I don’t know why. Lol. I’ve painted the sleigh bed and an accent wall, ordered the custom sign from #qbhome and redesigned the night stands. It’s a work in progress. 🙂 Slowly but surely….
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.
