Cream & Black Tablescape

Neutral table setting for a spring~country look

Spring is in the air friends! My hens are laying and spending their days in the sunshine (see all those gorgeous eggs on the table). The grass is greening and the trees are budding. It's a magical time of year where everything comes back to life, and one of my personal favorites!

Fixer Upper Inspiration

Industrial/Country Dining Room Design

Two days of being snowed-in with a record breaking nor'easter in Upstate New York during mid-March does things to you. Expensive things. Like - making me design and purchase an entirely new dining table, chairs, lighting and decor.

Classic country meets modern minimalist

I love my readers so much and enjoy sharing designs that I've created with them. Hence, I'm sharing a new and more importantly FREE vision-board (with full sources) for you! xo

The transitional tablescape

Late Winter / early spring inspired dining decor
{whites, pewter & peat moss}

The transition from the holiday season to the Spring is one I look forward to every year. For me, it is a time of tranquility and reflection. A time to put away all of the "clutter" (mentally and physically) that can accompany the hustle and bustle of the holidays, and focus on the peace and clarity that comes with those late winter months.   

Interior 'Board & Batten' Design

This design element is not just for barns and stables

Texture is often the forgotten element of design. Most homes (including mine) consist of painted sheetrock walls and white ceilings. We can thank modern-day designers and builders (like Chip & Joanna Gaines) for bringing back shiplap walls and other textures that you would've found standard in old, historic homes. The craze for custom interior looks has further been fueled by the DIY community on websites such as Pinterest, Houzz, Hometalk, etc. - sharing their tips on simple 'do-it-yourself' projects that have great impact! This is so true of board & batten --- an easy and impactful way to customize any room in your room.

$750 DIY Mudroom Makeover

Creating a serene space that feels clean and clutter-free

After three years of living in our newly-built home, I still have so many projects and ideas for making our space better. One idea that has been at the top of my list for some time now is our entryway/laundry/mudroom. 

Home for the Holidays 2016

My cozy and simple holiday decor

The days are short, dark and cold in the great Northeast, but our home is filled with lights, warmth and joy. Accents of red and white are in abundance and a woodland theme with Fraser Fir branches are found throughout our home.
