Indigo Abstract Art DIY

So I know it's October and I should be gracing you with fall inspiration posts and Halloween crafts, but I have to keep it real.... Ya'll know I am not much of a "crafter". It is still hot as Hades here in the dirty south, and  I am just not feeling the fall spirit. Not to be completely useless though, I do have an easy little DIY for you today. It seems anytime I go shopping for a specific item of…

Fall Home Tour 2016

Welcome to my first fall home tour, ya'll! While it is still well into the nineties outside and my A/C went out yesterday, I am going to try my best to give you guys some autumnal spirit. Given that the last blog post I published was my summer home tour,  I am a tad bit embarrassed.  Simply put, I have been overwhelmed and exhausted since the birth of my second baby boy back in April. You see, I have been trying my…

Summer Home Tour

So I know I am a little late in the game, but I wanted to share a mini-summer home tour with you guys today. Better late than never, right? As you all know, I love coastal, contemporary decor. Consequently, summer is typically my favorite decor season.   To my dismay, I recently had to replace my beloved white Ikea Ektorp slipcover with a darker and more stain resistant Nordvalla gray. While I preferred the white, my boys destroyed the white to…

How to Paint Over Dingy Grout – DIY Gray Grout

If I ever took the time to devise an inventory of worst home decor ideas ever, I think white floor grout would be close to the top of that list (along with wallpaper and popcorn ceilings). While I love the look of dark gray tiles with contrasting white grout, I know it is a mistake waiting to happen between my dogs, kids and loathing of mops. When I completed the initial walk- through of my fixer upper before purchasing it,…

Creating a Kid- Friendly Dining room

Hello friends! After a self-imposed maternity leave, it feels so good to be back. While I have been busy balancing life with a two year old plus a two month old, working out in the gym like a mad-women  and  getting back to my "day job" of digital marketing, I have been inspired to design again. You see, I have been on a recent mission to make my home more kid-friendly. As far as my dining room is concerned,  that…

A Cheap Way to Personalize Your Home Decor

I full-heartedly believe home should be a reflection of its inhabitants. A well- curated home takes time to can't just make a trip  to your local Homegoods or Pier 1 and acquire all of your home decor within one visit. The house would look "soul-less". I believe certain types of aesthetics lend themselves to display more personal character (think eclectic, global,  traditional and farmhouse), while other aesthetics (minimal modern, neutral  contemporary) present more of a challenge. The more I…


Newborn Photos and a Confession

Hey ya'll. I am so excited to officially announce the arrival of my baby boy and share some photos from his newborn session with my friend Jacky Kaye! I am also coming clean about some struggles I faced recently. Baby Rivers is almost three weeks old now, and I am thoroughly enjoying my "maternity leave". I am also so relieved to no longer be pregnant. You see, during this pregnancy, out of shame, I kept a deep, dark secret.....I was…
