September in Review

SEPTEMBER IN REVIEW

After these past 30 days I feel like my personal design has found the sweet spot, and it shows because I got 2 huge rooms crossed off my to-do list. Yep, September brought some BIG changes to my house. Well enough talking, let’s take a look back so you can see for yourself… First up was my Fall […]

One Dresser, Six Ways

When I purchase a new piece of furniture I often try to imagine using it another way in our home: double duty furniture I say. I mean I switch things around so often I might buy a sofa table for our family room that will soon end up in our entryway instead. Case in point, my white dresser […]

Building a Bathroom from Scratch

bathroom on a budget

I’ve never personally taken on a complete DIY overhaul before. Like starting with a dark, cold basement and turning it into a recreation room, extra bedroom, playroom and bathroom. But my old neighbors did and I’m just amazed. I’m not going to take you step-by-step through the construction process, but I will show you how […]

But now the room is painted and I’m oh-so-happy that it was MUCH easier to paint stripes than I […]

My Evolving Tastes

It’s kind of hard having a blog and having your design tastes evolve in front of a bunch of people. Sometimes you feel like you need to almost explain yourself. Case in point, my design choices from our first home compared to our second home. Our first house was a learning experience. We were 23 and […]

Getting my Vintage Shop On

One of my favorite things to do on the weekends is go shopping for some vintage finds. Usually my little haven is Historic Main Street in St. Charles just outside of St. Louis, but this time I found something new right up the road from me. This little place (4 Quarters – Timeless Vintage because 4 sisters […]

Charcoal Gray Sun Room

IF YOU WANT TO SEE THE UPDATED ROOM, CLICK HERE. When we first moved into this home I wanted a bunch of neutral tones throughout. I thought it would be easy to decorate for holidays or switch out décor and accent pillows, rugs, etc on a whim. But I just wasn’t feeling it. So about 2 […]
