Holy moly, it’s 2015! It’s good to be back. I had a wonderful time with family and friends! But most of all, I had a lot of time to think and reevaluate the blog and life at home. read more
It’s been a crazy week and I just know that next week will be more so, since Christmas is on Wednesday! Sadly, this will be my last post until next year – there’s a crazy thought! I’m going to be taking a much needed vacation celebrating the reason for the season and having a relaxing time with loved ones and close friends. I decided to share one more nontraditional Christmas tree option for you: how about this modern Dowel Christmas tree! read more
Christmas is only a WEEK away!! I can barely believe it and I already feel a bit of dread and sadness thinking of packing up all our Christmas stuff until next year. The house feels so festive and cozy right now! One thing I know I’ll be leaving up all year are these gorgeous Gem Ornaments from The Land of Nod, which I repurposed as simple air plant holders! read more
We are lucky to live so close to the Rocky Mountains! I often admire them from afar, since we can see them so clearly. As the sun sets most evenings, their silhouettes look so majestic and I realize they might just be my favorite. I decided to do a DIY for Christmas inspired by them: a Modern Mountain Garland! read more
I decided I had to start a Friday’s Round-Up on my blog because there are just SO many talented bloggers out there. I spend a lot of time in amazement at all the genius and gorgeous projects out there on the web. I myself, find so much inspiration from it and I hope you do too with all these handmade Christmas DIYs I’ve been drooling over! read more
I feel so honored to have been given the opportunity to work with Houzz (the largest home design destination on the web) on a totally fun project that’s right up my alley! I was recently asked to design an Ideabook and pick 20 home related products for a makeover project! Since we are currently working on our master bedroom, I picked my top favorite pieces for that space and why I chose them!
Feel free to check out my profile here and my Master Bedroom Makeover picks! Let me know what you think – do you have a favorite piece from my selections? As always, thank you for your constant support!
You might have noticed that I’ve been doing a lot of DIY Christmas projects this year. Our budget is a little tight, but I don’t want that to keep me from updating our decor or changing things up a little this year. The other day I shared a sneak peek on Instagram of some cute mountains and dala horses. Today, I’m sharing one of those projects with you. And yes, it’s another super simple and cheap DIY: Felt Dala Horse Ornaments and Gift Tags! Yay! read more
On one of my recent trips to Target, I spotted some fabulous Chalkboard Wrapping Paper. I had already bought so much paper at that point (a lot of pretty metallics), but I decided that I could use it for something else! read more
There’s just something to be said about little miniature houses. No matter the size, shape or color, they feel so cute and festive! You might remember my Modern Christmas Village. Well, I decided to go with that theme and add a few more to our decor, but these ones can stay out year round! read more
This year we opted for a non-traditional white Christmas tree for our formal living room. It’s something I’ve always wanted to explore, but never had the courage to do until we moved into our new home. Because I’ve stuck to a very minimal, clean and simple color palette this year (you can read more about that here), it’s made decorating very easy! I decided that I didn’t want things to get too boring, so I decided to add these cute and quirky DIY Felt Bow Ornaments to the tree! read more
Today I’m over at The Land of Nod‘s blog, Honest to Nod, sharing Three Ways to Decorate for Christmas!

I’ve picked my top three styles for the holidays to make deciding a bit easier for you!
I hope this little guide helps you narrow down on some decisions! Can you believe Christmas is only 3 weeks away??! It’s never too late to start decorating, there’s still time!
Which design would you choose for your home based on your personal style?

This year, our budget is a little tight since our big move and all the little things we’ve done as we’ve settled into our new home. With Christmas just a few weeks away, I am feeling the pressure of having to get organized and start on those gifts – which feels a bit daunting. We decided to do a few DIY presents for our family this year to help stick to our budget, but also create these one-of-a-kind pieces! Like this fun DIY Steel Bulletin Board! read more
