Christmas at Home - 2018

tidings of comfort & joy...

The days are short and the air is brisk. Undeniably, the season of winter is closing in and the magical feeling of Christmas is upon us. In our home (and the home of so many), Christmas is an annual reminder of traditions and a celebration of all that is good in this world. Decorating our homes and spaces with lights and greenery instantly changes the emotional connection to any space. 

Master Bedroom Makeover

muted grays with some really fun wall art

This summer we set out to makeover our master bedroom with a very teeny tiny budget. We wanted to use our savings for road trips with the kids. So, we rolled up our sleeves and used that good ole' elbow grease to reimagine our retreat and make it feel new again.

Powder Bath Makeover

It's Labor Day weekend, and I sit here before my computer typing and truly understanding the irony of this blog post. The fruits of one's labor are filled with joy, accomplishment, and pride (among many other emotions). Whether sowing the fruits of a garden, the gains of a lucrative career, or the simple joy of small projects you can check off the "to-do" list, there is great closure in what we accomplish through hard work and labor. So as I reflect on the incredible summer we have been afforded, I cannot help but feel that small projects, like this one, define a sense of what this holiday is all about.

ONEHOPE Wine Tasting

good friends | good food | good wine

Any excuse for a party is a good excuse right? My thoughts exactly. Even better is when you get to host a party where you can involve charity and wine. Interested yet? This was the case at my most recent home gathering where I had the good fortune of inviting friends and loved ones over to sip on some delicious wine and donate proceeds to my charity of choice: Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. 

Patio Decor - Summer '18

fresh and affordable looks for outdoor living 

Summer is almost here and that means lots of time for outdoor living and lounging. These warm days are like precious gold in the great northeast. Most of 2018 to date has been spent in wind and rain, snow and sleet and lots of cloud cover. You can feel the energy in the air when the sun shines - - people are out and about and the neighborhood just feels a little lighter. 

Kitchen Window Treatments

Window treatments. It always sounded like a term that my parents and their friends talked about. The thought of investing in them seemed too formal and expensive for my taste (or so I thought). I always limited my options to whatever I could find in stock at Target or Lowes - and that my friends was about all the knowledge I had when it came to window treatments.

Master Bedroom Retreat

a vision board to inspire

We moved into our current home in August of 2013. It was our third move in three years and while it was exciting, we were exhausted! When we moved in we selected mostly neutral tones except for our master bedroom. When it came time for the master we selected 'Special Gray' by Sherwin Williams. We love the color so much and know that it's inspired both friends and followers to try bold, fun color!
