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!

Plans for our New Kitchen

Hi friends! I’m so excited to finally share a few things have been going on behind the scenes. If you missed it, Duncan and I recently moved back to Dallas after living in Denver for the past 14-ish months. I know, *very* quick turnaround! But you know, life throws you curveballs sometimes. I wanted to share a few plans we have for the kitchen (nothing huge, just little changes to…

Denver Dining Room & Kitchen Photo Tour

I just posted this photo on instagram saying that we’re packing up our kitchen today and realized that I’d never actually shared these images of our Denver kitchen and dining room on the blog! I’ve had this sitting in drafts for months! So I wanted to get the blog post up before we officially move to Dallas at the end of this week – gah crazy times right now! Denver…

The Vibe I’m Going for With the Nursery

I’ve been meaning to put all my thoughts together in a blog post to document my process with getting the nursery ready.  I didn’t get started until pretty in my pregnancy because we weren’t sure where we were going to live. Up until late November, we had so many things were up in the air, so it was hard to make plans.  But now that we know we’ll be in…

Denver Office Photo Tour + Home Decor Shops I Love

I apologize for this JUST being published, but I’m thrilled to finally share the finished realists of my Denver office! I LOVE it! Of all the rooms we decorated in the house, I think this one took me the longest to figure out because I couldn’t figure out how I wanted to lay it out. I knew I needed a full length mirror in here for outfit try-ons and styling,…

Denver Living Room Photo Tour

Hi friends! I’m so excited to finally be sharing these photos of our completed living room – this has been a long time coming! We are so pleased with the way it turned out. I shared a little bit about my vision for the space back in this blog post (that I published a YEAR ago – wow!) and it’s so neat to see it all come together and be…

Denver Home Bedroom Photo Tour

Hi friends! I’m *so* excited to finally be sharing the finished product of our bedroom here in Denver! We moved here in October 2019 and have been slowly but surely decorating over the past year. Things were a little slow to start because I was also planning a wedding (and the holidays!)….oh, and then the pandemic slowed things down FOR SURE. But I am THRILLED to be sharing everything with…

Cozy Fall Decor

In case you haven’t had enough fall content around here, I thought I’d share some very cozy fall home decor! I love decorating for the holidays and seasons, but I tried not to go overboard with pumpkin everything and instead thought more about texture and color. I think you can definitely make your home feel like fall simply by adding details like this blanket and this faux sheepskin pillow. I…

Our Denver Patio

This post has been a long time coming and I’m so excited to finally be sitting down to write it. At the beginning of summer, I had high hopes of getting it done really quickly, but like most things, it ended up taking much longer than I expected! Regardless, I’m thrilled it’s finished and we’ve been enjoying it every single day. Getting to spend more time outside was one of…

And whether you’re going to a friend’s house or staying home, I have a few 4th of July entertainment must-haves to share with y’all! I went with a patriotic, but not too patriotic theme (kinda like my…

My Go-To Kitchen Favorites

Something that really is giving me all the joy and happy feels right now is cooking. It’s kinda crazy too because if you would have asked me a year ago if cooking and getting in the kitchen would be my happy place, it would have been a hard no. LOL. Crazy what can change in a year! But it’s honestly been so fun and I love sharing everything I’m learning…

Everything You Need to Help with Spring Cleaning

How many of y’all are starting your spring cleaning? And I don’t just mean because we’re all staying home right now, but because it’s, ya know…spring LOL. I honestly feel like I’ve been spring cleaning for months – basically ever since we moved into our Denver house. It’s been a constant whirlwind of trying to purge my closet, kitchen stuff and any extra stuff we brought with us from Dallas.…

Basement Closet

When we bought our Denver home, one area we weren’t sure how to utilize was the basement (especially coming from Texas!). It has a couple of rooms that work well as guest rooms, but there’s also a large hangout space and then a room that the builder intended on as a workout room… aka a big blank room with lots of plugs (ha!). At first we thought that might be…

Home Decor that Guys & Girls Would Both Like

I had so much fun putting this week’s shopping collage together because I think it’s a cool topic! Duncan is the first guy I’ve lived with, other than my dad and brother, and it’s definitely the first time I’m having to keep a guy in mind while decorating. I pulled together some items that we currently have in our house – and some that I’m eyeing – that we both…

Denver Dining Room Progress Update

I’ve been putting this post off for months because, quite frankly, the dining room has taken me forever! And it’s still not done! But I know several of you said you like the see progress images and want to hear about the process, so I definitely wanted to honor those requests. It’s hard for me to share things without them being *DONE* but I’m working on getting better at that!…

What to Purge BEFORE You Move

Hey friends! Today’s post is all about purging – something that has completely taken over my life lately. You see, when I moved from Dallas to Denver I was in the middle of planning our wedding and felt like I was completely maxed out on time. So if something had to give it was going to be spending time purging my entire life before packing it up and moving. I’m…

The Aesthetic I Want in Our Denver Home

I’ve been wanting to update y’all on my plans for decorating the house for weeks now, and I’m so glad I’m finally sitting down to gather my thoughts and write this post. If you’ve been following along, then you already know that I moved from Dallas to Denver in the middle of October. I left a house that I absolutely ADORED and spent the last 3 years decorating and getting…

All About My Dallas Home

Hi guys! I’ve been compiling this post for a few weeks now and I gotta tell you, looking through all the photos certainly feels a bit nostalgic. But at the same time, this chapter of my life truly does feel over. Like, if I was offered the opportunity to switch everything back to how things were (back in my Dallas bubble living in this home with Duncan of course!), I…

Best of Fall Decor For All Budgets

I showed y’all some of my fall decor a couple of weeks ago on Instagram, but between the move and all the things, it’s pretty much as far as I got. Oh! And I did put some pumpkins on my porch :) While I’m not going full out for fall decor, it’s one of my favorite times to decorate and add little pops of Autumn to the house. Since we’re moving right in the middle of the season, I didn’t think it was smart to buy too much, but if I were…here’s what I’d be buying! I do actually have a few of these items that I’ve used year after year and still LOVE!
