I am seriously so excited you are here!
Welcome to my little part of the world! I’m a born and raised Texan, married to the sweetest man alive. We have a 6-year old together, and I am step-mom to five, (yes, FIVE!!) bonus kids. Luckily for me (and my sanity!) they’ve all graduated from high school! I work full time outside the home in the legal field, but my creative passion has always been interior design.
In the summer of 2015, my husband and I bought our first house together--a twenty-something-year-old two-story in the suburbs west of Houston. It came complete with hideous wallpaper in the bathrooms, ugly yellow walls almost everywhere else, and that classic orange-y oak kitchen we all know and hate. I had a lot of big ideas about how to transform the house, but I didn’t have a big budget or a whole lot of time.
Shortly after moving into the house, I started an Instagram page--mainly to keep myself accountable to complete all those wild ideas. And it’s worked. Kinda. There is still so so so much to do. As I shared on Instagram all that I was doing, I began receiving so many questions about how I did my projects, or asking what paint color I used or where I bought my sectional. I realized I needed a better platform for sharing my decor ideas and giving you guys clear instructions and more information about all I was doing.
And so, this blog was born in the summer of 2017. On this blog, I share my journey as I decorate for clients and complete my own home projects--and I share my successes and failures along the way--so you can avoid making the same ones! I don’t know about you, but I always prefer to learn from someone else’s mistakes, rather than making my own--especially when it comes to design and decor projects! So, grab yourself a cup of coffee (or a glass of wine!), a cozy blanket, and get settled! I hope you’ll find this place to be an inspirational source full of design, decor, and DIY ideas that are budget-friendly, easy to implement, and easy on the eyes.
