Nightstands; Styled

Do you ever feel like you get the slug bug when it comes to your home? You know, those moments where you look around your home and you just aren’t quite satisfied. Those moments where you know you need a little change?

Well, have no fear. We’ve all been there! And I have a nice and easy, yet affordable solution. STYLE YOUR NIGHTSTANDS! Don’t freak out. It’s simple, and often just takes a little organizing more than anything. If you are like me, everything defaults to your nightstand; the piles of books, papers that you’ve tried to finish before falling asleep, or even just the random chap sticks, lotion, pictures, candles etc. etc.

Here are several quick glimpses of things I have done around people’s homes to make them, well, more homey. Simple fixes like this really are a breath of fresh air. Take a look!

Sigh… see what I mean? You can breathe better now, and sleep deeper. Give it a try and send me links to your pictures when you do!

Happy Monday! :)

Also known by it’s more serious & scientific term, the Ficus lyrata! We all know the trend of using these sculptural plants has been going on for a while now, and we all know that we want to see 1… or 27 of them in our own homes. They show up in these beautiful, well-styled pictures; they are the perfect finishing touch to bring life into a space! With very little care needed to grow and thrive- the fiddle leaf fig is a little miracle for this black thumb designer.

You know what I’m talking about, right?







I know, I know. I told you! Do you have any of these beauties in your home? You should!

I’ve certainly been inspired to use this tinted mirror trend in my own designs! In fact, if you follow me on Instagram, yesterday you got a sneak peek of a room that I am working on for an adorable little girl! There are going to be so many fun, impactful features in this space- one of my favorites being the green tinted mirrored panels hung behind the bed!


More eye candy coming!!!!


Details Make the Heart Grow Fonder

It is said that absence makes the heart grow fonder. In the world of a decorator/designer however, it’s all about including special details. And literally, those small features make the heart grow fonder. You know, like that moment when you first walk through the front door and your dog greets you as if it’s been three thousand hours since they’ve seen you? Yes, details within a space do that to me. I don’t quite turn into an animal, but the reactions are very similar.

With that being said, I may have a little something up my sleeve for a little girl’s room I’ve been working on. It consists of two magic words: 1. ceiling 2.medallion

Here is my inspiration:

I can’t get over it folks. The details; they get me EVERY.TIME.

Stunning and Significant Master Bath

Hey Friends!  I am excited to post a space today that I have revealed incrementally, but never as a finalized, complete space.  This project came about when we got a call from a producer of the show, “Extreme Weight Loss.”  If you are a fan of the show, you know that in previous years they’ve done small room makeovers for contestants.  This year, their was a particular contestant that lived just down the road from us in a neighboring town.  Instead of the typical exercise room makeover, the producer asked if we would be interested in redoing the master bath because of the bad memories that had been created there.  Georgeanna hated this space because her weight had caused the shower floor to crack and break.  This was a daily reminder of something she was less than proud of…and in light of the transformational journey she was about to embark on, the family and producers felt this was the space that had to be addressed!

Tim and I are firm believers that our surroundings have the power to encourage or discourage us, inspire us or drag us down.  I was particularly excited to work on the master bathroom because it really is the space where you start your day! Every morning you get ready to face the world in your bathroom……and generally the design there is less than inspiring.  So, of course, Tim and I jumped at the chance to create a design that was not only beautiful in style, but extremely meaningful in design! Here’s a look at what we did…





The fish scale feature wall was the show stopper in this space.  Click here to learn more about the process I went through to create it!





















We wanted something to draw your eye to the back of the room in order to make the room feel bigger.  This Moorish Wood Wall did just that!  Read more about that project here!



The Baroque Mirrors were some of the most meaningful pieces we created for the space.  They were made up of sorts of shapes that spoke to the couples’ history, indiviual personalities, and dreams!  We love the way they turned out! Read more about that particular project here!



I just love how this space came together! Don’t forget to give your own bathroom some inspirational pieces to prepare you to tackle each day with appreciation and encouragement!
