Contemporary cottage

The before of this particular project was sad and tired but there was definitely some potential. The worst house on a nice street.

I imagined the house as a cute white cottage with character and charm.. or at least as much character and charm as the budget would allow.

The first step was adding balance to […]

Wreath Workshop 2015

The wreath workshop was an awesome success! Unfortunately, I was so busy this year that again, pictures were the last thing on my mind.

Still So Much To Do…

I’ve finally hung my Ashley Woodson Bailey print in a temporary frame from Ikea. (I’ll get it professionally framed at some point.)

Tiling

This week we started tiling!
My initial inspiration for the bathroom was this design by Kelly Wearstler. I’m really into the hollywood regency look lately!
