If you can believe it, this is the first nursery I've ever designed!!! And they are soooo fun. Small space, lots of options to be as colorful or as playful or as whatEVER you want?! Love it.

We have this adorable chandelier snagged from a consignment store. At one point, I'm sure I envisioned it as a bright kelly green somewhere, but it ended up in our 'formal' dining room and the metal tone made more sense.

Welcome back to the upstairs portion of this "Before" house tour!! I realized when I looked back at the downstairs that as neat and 'organized' as the space feels to me after pushing through boxes, it's still pretty far on the crazy cluttered side of things... keeping it real.

Before Home TOUR

If I never see another cardboard box, it will be too soon!!!

Moving into a new house is a little bit of a crap shoot... there are lots of things that you *know* you need to tackle (wallpaper, painting, lighting), but there are inevitably the little areas you don't bank on, but you need to address ASAP.

I don't write about this aspect of blogging often because it's not the greatest but... it is an essential piece of keeping this little site ticking, paying some bills, and... connecting with brands: the dreaded sponsored post.  Typically my sponsored posts are products that I would … [Read more...]
