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!

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.

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…

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.

Hi y’all! I’ve been hinting at this post for a while on my stories and it’s finally here. I bought a few new things and used some items I already had around the house to mix and match my bed into 8 different styles. I kept my white sheets on for all of the styles and mostly played around with pillows, duvet cover and throws. This was an extremely fun…

Home Finds Under $100

Something I’ve really enjoyed and gotten more into in the last few years is home decor. I feel like I’m finally finding my own groove and the kind of style I actually like. And even though moving twice in two years has been a *major* pain, it’s also been fun to get to decorate and kind of make these homes our own. Which is the purpose for today’s post! I…

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…

I apologize for this JUST being published, but I’m thrilled to finally share the finished realists of my Denver office! I LOVE it!
