Glamming Up My Design

Glamming Up My Design

After I took down my Christmas decorations on New Year’s day, I felt like my home design needed a boost.  Don’t you just hate how dull and bare your home looks after all of the glowing lights and ornaments are gone? On a whim,  I decided to glam up my home.

My sweet husband installed a new Chandelier in our bedroom where an ugly, old fan used to hang.

I also bought some plush, silver throw pillows and a matching quilt.


I love how just a few of these simple additions, really provide a more luxurious feel to our room.


Craving a bit more warmth and upscale texture in the living room, I traded my white Ikea curtains for some silk, silver drapes. I also purchased some blue and silver throw pillows. Being comprised of a silk texture and filled with down, the pillows feel much more glam… I especially love how I can give them the designer’s “karate chop”.

I found these gorgeous mirrored frames at Homegoods and decided I could not live without them, so I found a home for them on the kitchen walls. Love how they give the walls a pop of “bling”.


And last, I traded the Chalkboard for this “rustic glam” abstract canvas.

While a lot of the changes were motivated by my need for glam in the abscence of all the Christmas decor, I also received some very exciting news this weekend…. God willing everything goes as planned, our home is set to be featured in a regional, lifestyle magazine for the Spring edition. Needless to say, I have had a very busy weekend of cleaning and refining my rooms.

I cannot wait to share the feature once it comes out!!! Now, I am going to get back to staging my home for the shoot that is scheduled for tomorrow.

Get out there and design some good vibes!!



My journey in interior design and home improvement began with transforming my first fixer-upper home, all while managing a budget and raising two young boys. My work, a reflection of my passion for creating beautiful, uplifting spaces, has been recognized by top publications like Better Homes and Gardens Magazine, HGTV, and more. I invite you to explore my site and witness the transformation of my home and the vibes we've designed.Read more...

Yes, it never fails....I always get bummed out about my home decor after the Christmas decor goes down. Glad to know I am not the only one.
