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!

The Kids’ Playroom Reveal

I’ve shared a few times on social media over the past month or so that I’ve been working on creating a fun playroom for Blake and Four. We finally put the finishing touches on it recently, so I decided to do a kids’ playroom reveal in case you’re looking for inspo for your own home or just want to snag a few of the items we used for playroom organization.…

My Honest Review of Branch Basics

A lot of you have followed along on my journey to clean cleaning products. So, without further adieu, here is my honest review of Branch Basics. The Mission Back in September, my friends Allison and Kelly were in town and stopped by my house with a mission in mind. Allison and Kelly are the founders of Branch Basics — a company that creates non-toxic, plant- and mineral-based household cleaners. Their…

My Primary Bathroom Wallpaper

It’s been a minute since I’ve done home content but I had to share my primary bathroom wallpaper update. When we first bought this home, it was under construction. The move back from Denver happened right before Four was born, so it was just a super chaotic time in general. You might remember that my primary bathroom was a work in progress for a LONG time. We didn’t officially finish it…

Our Banquette Kitchen Island Remodel

I’ve been meaning to share an update on our banquette kitchen island for a while! Those of you who’ve been following me for a minute probably remember that I made some updates to my kitchen when we first bought this home in Dallas. While I loved the bar stools (they were old McGee & Co. from our Denver home) I had in the kitchen, they just didn’t provide enough seating. I knew…

My Spring Cleaning Checklist

It’s that time of year again. Spring cleaning is in the air! Time to bust out the Swiffer, move all of your furniture, and deep clean your entire home. This is a ritual I’ve found super therapeutic over the years. It sort of feels like a fresh start after months of holidays, cold weather, etc. I don’t truly feel like my spring kicks off until I get my house cleaned…

Our Bedroom Drapery and Window Treatments

Any time I post photos of my bedroom, I have several people reach out about my bedroom drapery and window treatments. These are the same drapes I had in my living room in our Denver home (see the photo below). Clearly, I’m a fan. When searching for drapes, we wanted some that would feel sheer-ish but still filter out light. As you can see, our room gets sunlight at certain…

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…

Sarah is the QUEEN of clean and gives so many amazing tips on the Go Clean Co Instagram account.

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…

Small Things I Do to Make Sure My House is Always Tidy

This time of year, it’s easy for my house to get cluttered quickly. Between packages arriving for holiday gifting and lots of projects happening for work, I can find myself look around my house and wondering when the tornado came through. 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…

It may be in the 90s this weekend in Dallas but fall is officially here. There’s something about this time of year that makes me so excited and eager to update my home decor. I LOVE sprinkling in pieces here and there to give my home a more cozy feel! You might remember I used Ginger Curtis of Urbanology Designs to help me design my kitchen. I am so happy…

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…

Fall-Inspired Table with Royal Crown Derby China

I have had a surprising amount of fun playing with tables this season! We decided we wanted to have a couple people over for dinner and I got really excited and into making a special moment for the occasion with a fun table setup. I ordered a few things to go with a couple pieces I already owned. I fell in love with these feather placemats I shared a couple…

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…
