I feel like I’m finally starting to get a vision for our house… and believe it or not, I’ve already changed our kitchen AGAIN and made a few exterior edits. I’d like to say I’m done making changes, but don’t hold me to that ha. I’ll be sure to share those changes once it’s set in stone and materials have been ordered. But for now, I’m sharing our living room mood board and design board. This is the only board that has stayed the same for months… I think it’s my favorite space so far! It just reminds me so much of our family, and I envision lots of good times spent in this space. It’s casual, warm, inviting, and collected. All the things I want our home to be.

It’s time to reveal our 29th Street Bonus Room! This project was for a returning client, who wanted their upstairs bonus room to be used multi-purposely. Our clients wanted it to be a comfortable hang out space for their kids, family, and friends to enjoy, a work space, and a guest room. In order to make that happen, we decided to break it up by making half of the space moody and dark with shiplap walls, and the other half is bright and comfortable. The work station and large storage closet are primarily in the dark half of the room, while the entertainment space is in the light half of the room. Our clients had tears of joy at the reveal, which is the best feeling in the world! We know this space will get a lot of use, and we’re so happy it’s done for everyone to enjoy.
Now for the before and after pictures… Let’s start with the after.

1. Each new year, I come up with a word/theme to focus on. This year, my word is intentional. I want to be more intentional with my family, my calendar, my work hours, my overall health, my generosity, and all the rest… Do you have a word for the new year? I’d love to hear it.
2. Monday, we had an install for our 29th street project! Install days are by far the best days at work. We spend months and months preparing for this day(s), and when it arrives, it’s the absolute BEST. This install was for a returning client, and we made her cry for the second time (which is always our goal, to make our clients cry happy tears). We genuinely care so deeply for each of our clients and their homes, which makes the reveal so special. Here are a few pictures I took on my iPhone (professional photos coming soon)!
3. Have you popped into Target recently? Who am I kidding, of course you have. Well, they have some really great stuff right now! I just bought this bench , lamp, leather bins, sheets, and comforter for our new house.
5. Our Spring Drive Project is really coming together! Here is a progress shot of the mudroom. I love how it’s coming together. Can’t wait to see everything painted!
Have a great weekend!
Designing my kitchen has been a challenge, and I can see why people hire a designer ;) But, seriously! It feels a lot more challenging when it’s your own space, and I’m not sure why. I’ve dreamed of building a house my entire life, and the fact that it’s happening seems too good to be true.
My style is warm, welcoming, collected, and earthy. The handmade tile, wood island, and honed countertops give it an earthy feel. The rich aged brass, oversized island, and dark stove give it a warm and welcoming vibe. The mix of textures and metals give it a collected look.
I’m so excited to see this kitchen take shape in the months to come!
I shared inspiration and a design board a few months back, but a few things have been tweaked!
Happy New Year! A new year brings a clean slate and a desire to get organized. There’s something about decluttering and simplifying that feels so good, right? To help get things organized, we are sharing some of our favorite products!
Okay, now we’re ready to purge and organize!
