My Favorite Accent Color: Blue

A quick color and style update for this client! Red and traditional is now blue and modern rustic!

Stair niche before and after

I love using mirrors to help bounce light around the room! Especially in dark nooks of the house!

Entryway before and after

Lamps are essential in any space and I love using them in an entryway. Every piece used here has a very bright and fresh feel to update the space!

So much great texture in this photo!

Living room update

Lots of pattern and texture added, with little color.

Patio Renovation!

I am so excited to share this makeover/renovation with you guys!! This was a huge labor of love for my husband and I! Months of hard work and planning have finally paid off! I am so in love with our new patio space. I literally sit out there everyday!

Before this patio was DARK, cluttered, full of hand me downs and failed DIY projects, and just plain outdated! Our house has a milk chocolate brown vinyl siding that I have hated from the day we bought the place. But, I had always envisioned it farmhouse white and 3 years and lots of research later, I finally had the courage to spray paint it myself. I had decided the patio was the best place to start!

The first thing I did was paint the siding and the ceiling white. (Pure White by Sherwin Williams). I also gave the concrete a fresh coat of grey paint. What a HUGE difference!! I was already in love!

We then cased in the existing metal beams and posts with cedar and added new grey shutters (Gauntlet Grey by Sherwin Williams). We took down the old ceiling fan since the ceilings are way too low to have a fan without chopping someone's head off lol. We replaced it with an industrial semi flush mount light.

From there, we put up roller screens on each side to help block out sun and bad weather. (Lowes)

And then came the fun part...Decorating!!

The tv console is from NFM. I love the barn doors and the shelving inside provides so much storage for pool towels and supplies.

This wing back wicker accent chair is from Pier One and my husband loves that a tall guy like himself can sit so comfortably in it!

The outdoor sectional is from Wayfair and the pillows are from random places such as Stein Mart, At Home, Target, and Tuesday Morning.

The accent table is from Home Goods and the Rug is from Wayfair.

The vintage ceiling tiles and botanical print are from The Frisco Mercantile and the Lake Wisdom sign is from Home Goods. I stumbled across this sign one day and when I saw it had our last name on it, I just had to have it!

This giant beautiful windmill clock is from Kirklands.

My hubby made this table completely from reclaimed wood and the black metal benches and chairs are from Target.

My candle chandelier is from Hobby Lobby and it has flameless candles for a warm glow.

I can't tell you what a difference it is to spend time having dinner as a family at this table, watch a movie at night on the couch, take a nap, or even do some occasional work outside! It has become such a warm, inviting space that everyone wants to hang out in!

Grey+Mint Retreat


This brand new home already had a great master bedroom space, but it lacked character and warmth. By swapping out the dark furniture and adding all new décor, this room is now a space you would never want to leave!

Grey upholstered tufted headboard and white night stands.

We swapped out the old basic bathroom door for this sliding barn door! What a huge difference it makes! I love that it is a piece of functional décor!

We moved this chair in from the living room and added the round accent table floor lamp, and accessories for a cozy spot to land.

I am obsessed with this little accent table. The mix of metal and wood makes my heart happy and the wood top opens for storage!!

And who doesn't love a little antique brass floor lamp?! Love the mix of metals.

White dresser with tv wall mounted above. I added a few décor pieces to hide the tv components.

I love layering lots of texture and pattern on any bed that I design.

The mix of glass lamps, reclaimed wood art, and the cotton stem wreath are the perfect combination for a well put together space!

I went with a grey, navy, and mint green color scheme.

Tall white chest of drawers with a quatrefoil mirror and some fun vintage accessories.

Wall color is Agreeable Grey by SW. Door color is Dovetail Grey by SW.

We also carried the same décor theme into the master bath.

Custom faux roman shade in a modern grey print.

Want some decorating advice? Remove that builder grade towel bar and add something with hooks or a shelf. How cute is this?!!
