As a recent buyer of my first home (eek!), I’ve naturally become much more involved in this category as I venture into the world of decorating. I also did a couple of posts on what to expect when buying a house – documenting just about everything I learned along the way. I also share my home-decor updates and room reveal in this category as well as buying decisions and styling tips!

Blake’s Nursery Reveal

I’m actually a little proud of myself for getting this done so soon after Blake was born. It took more than two months to get Four’s nursery reveal up. It’s amazing how much more put together your nursery can feel when your baby doesn’t come 5 weeks early. ;) With Blake’s nursery, I knew I wanted it to have a feminine feel without being overly girly. I’d seen several nurseries…

My Summer Table for 4th of July

If there’s one thing you need to know about me, it’s that I love putting together a festive table. Whether it’s my holiday tablescape or the one I recently put together for spring, I feel like the creativity just flows when I’m putting together a table for hosting. We haven’t quite finalized our July 4th plans yet, but I’m hoping to host a small get-together with BBQ or burgers. I’ve been…

My Spring Table for Easter

I’m so excited we will be hosting Easter lunch this year. We had a blast hosting Thanksgiving last year, so I can’t wait to bring my favorite people together around the table again to celebrate another one of our favorite holidays! I’ve always really loved holidays, but now that we have Four (and another one on the way), holidays have become so special. And let’s be real, they’re also an excuse…

Closet Reveal & Organization Tips

I’m so excited to finally share my closet with y’all. We’ve been working on this space for the past 10 months. Looking at it now, I can’t believe it used to be an attic. Thanks to the help of some amazing designers and builders, we were able to transform this space into my dream closet slash office. Duncan and I joke that this is probably the nicest closest I’ll ever have…

But I’ve learned that by following a few small tips, my house stays tidy without much effort and I feel much more put together and organized. When it comes…

My First Thanksgiving Table

We are officially into November. Insert mind-blown emoji here, right!? I truly can’t believe how fast this year has gone. I’m not sure if it’s the fact that I’ve got an almost 9-month-old crawling around everywhere or what but this year’s flown by. November does have me excited because I will be hosting my first ever Thanksgiving this year! Is this what being a grown-up feels like!? I’m slightly nervous…

Our Primary Bathroom Update

This post has been a long time coming but I’m so excited to finally share an update of our bathroom! For those of you who have been following me for at least the past 9 months, you know this bathroom has been a journey. When we moved into this house at the beginning of this year, I was super pregnant with Four. I was totally in the nesting phase and wanted everything…

Fall Bedding Update

I love switching up our bedding and playing with different color combos. I’ve updated it a few times since moving in – here’s how it was a few months ago if you missed it. There’s just something so yummy about brand new sheets. Did we need new sheets? Absolutely not. But I wanted to try a different color combo with some not-white sheets and see how it looked with our…

Black, White & Taupe Fall Table

I’m getting really into all things tables lately. And truthfully, I’ve never really put together a table before this one. My mom has always been really into china and has a massive collection, so I’m surprised it’s just peaking my interest. But whatever the case, I’m excited about it and am marking 2021 as the year I start my “table” collection. Did you catch the blog post last month where…

My Bedding Details

Hi friends! Every time I do a Q&A on Instagram I get flooded with questions about my bed/bedding details. Currently, I have an all-white look broken up with a waffle textured blanket and some tan linen pillows. It’s perfect for spring/summer. During the fall/winter seasons, I replace the white blanket with a tan one and add rust-colored accent pillows to warm things up a bit. There are many ways you…

With fall just around the corner (yay for cooler temps!), I got inspired to create a fun and unique tablescape that’s inviting + cozy. My vision this year was inspired by organic and earth-toned looks. I love the idea of incorporating different textures like stone, ceramics, and woods to create visual interest.

My recent recommitment to getting consistent blog posts up has been just the inspiration I’ve needed to knock of a lot of the blog posts I’ve been sitting on. You might remember I shared the plans we had for our…

Four’s Nursery Photo Tour

We have been really enjoying his nursery over the last several months and I couldn’t be more pleased with the way it turned out. I didn’t start working on it until I was about 6 months pregnant…
