Summer decorating in my dining room has involved shopping my own home and using mostly what I already had.  The only item that was purchased for this table are the Eugenia topiaries that my husband got me for Mother's Day.  Aren't they pretty?  I love topiaries of all kinds, but I had these same live plants a few years ago and unfortunately I went on vacation and they didn't make it.  They are bea...

How to add design touches to give your home that "French Country" Style

Hello Everyone!  How's everyone doing out there?  We are on day 62 of self quarantine in our house.  I have both my husband home, who normally travels 3 to 4 days a week and my daughter, who just completed her first year in college.  I feel so blessed to be able to spend time with them that we normally wouldn't have together!...

Merry Christmas everyone! 

Can you believe that there are only a few sleeps left until Christmas?  I'm so glad you joined me on the blog today because I want to show you the theme that the kids and I chose this year's Christmas!  It was inspired by Harry Potter with a long banquet table that we built for our living room and some themed touches throughout our decor.  This has been such a fun theme...

Holiday greetings to all of you today and thanks for coming to take a look at our home!  I am sharing a look at some of our holiday decorations as well as a dining table that I built a few weeks ago.  I started looking for a new table simply because the dining table I had would only seat six and I needed a table that would seat more of our friends and family. After looking at my options, neither o...

Today, we had our first touch of wintery mix weather here in Northwest Arkansas.  It's early for us to have such cold and icy/snowy weather but while I'm snuggled up in my cozy sweater, I thought I would share a look at the Fall touches we added to our bedroom this year.  We carried the same theme of mustard yellow, cream and grays throughout the house with some touches of greenery. 

I d...

Lately I've been thinking a lot about season's changing and how that translates right now to my own life.  You may have noticed it's been a few months since I've posted any decor or home updates on the blog.  I'm here to tell you that the reasons for that are hard to talk about and although I hate to admit it, life has kinda kicked my booty lately. 

Changes can be hard, but I'm...

It's always a good morning when you have a coffee in hand, am I right? Even if your not a coffee addict like me, maybe you enjoy a hot cup of tea in the morning?  There's just something really relaxing to me about a hot beverage when I first wake up.  I know it's my 30 minutes of calm before I am up and running around all day, so I enjoy those moments of tranquility.  It's my "me" time in the day...

I've always loved French Country design and when we decided to update our master bedroom that is the design style that fit.  We have been doing a lot of updating in our home lately and every room has a cohesive look now, with the exception of my daughter's room, which you saw last week.  Most of the house is a neutral palette that includes light grey walls, cream trim, and ivory and black furnishi...

How to put the "Fun" into functional for the best kid's rooms

We talk mostly about designing main living spaces and DIY projects on the blog, but today I want to visit with you about a love of mine, and that is designing kids spaces.  Once upon a time...I really wanted to go into the business of interior design for children's bedrooms.  I never explored this dream because the truth is, I was terrif...

Last week, we talked about updating our living room and making small inexpensive changes to freshen a space.  I've found over the years, that you don't have to spend a lot of money to get a fresh new look.  As a family, we spend most of our time in the living room and so this is the area that I chose to update.  I added new pillows, a new rug and a lamp.  I spent about $220 all together and the sp...
