Don’s room has been such a fun space for me to design! I went with a whole new theme then I ever would have since we are now living in Florida- “The Sea.” For a little boy who’d love to go the beach everyday (and sometimes he does), he is loving this space. [Read more…]
Hi Friends! I have a fun DIY for you today! Here’s the thing- I am currently renting after spending years of owning. Sometimes I have to be creative with how I’m decorating. For example, I needed a drop off station at our front door- when I normally would hang a hook, I wanted to find a way to put my hats, bag, and dog leashes down without putting holes in the wall.

The decorating of our Florida home continues! As a back story to any new visitors, my family moved to Miami, Florida from Salt Lake City, Utah in January of 2018. I am decorating the gorgeous home corner by corner with the best DIY’s, thrift store finds, and affordable decor I can find! Today I am sharing the plan for my dining room.
During December when I was freezing in Utah I started planning out the design for our Florida dining room. I came up with the concept for the new space and I was oh so excited! Like, I told all of my friends and family about it because it felt like me more than any other room I’ve ever designed! It embraces pattern and color and most of all- pink!

Moving to Florida and an empty home, my first priority was to get Don settled and comfortable in his new room. I started dreaming about his space a few months ago- I think a child’s room is a great excuse to have fun and by doing so, create an environment where his imagination can soar.
I’ve been embracing a coastal vibe for this home since we are minutes from the beach. I love a theme for a kid room and for Don’s new room, it will be “The Sea.” This quote by Louisa May Alcott epitomizes what I am thinking about for the room “I am not afraid of storms for I am learning how to sail my ship.” Ready to see the mood board?!
As a decorator, I know what a difference lighting makes. A room needs furniture to be functional. If you want to turn a room from ok to a “designer room” with wow- you need great lighting. In our old house, I was always pleasantly surprised by how many people commented on the dining room chandelier when they came to visit. They loved it (as did I) and it made a difference in how the room felt! [Read more…]
I have a really fun and affordable DIY today! Here’s the truth- you can have the house of your dreams no matter your budget or house size. While I’ve been decorating our rental house in Florida, I’ve had to shop at thrift stores and make my own pieces since I don’t have the budget to buy everything brand new. But I think it is a GOOD thing to mix new and handmade and second hand- it makes it feel collected. So here’s the DIY: [Read more…]
We’ve been in Florida a few weeks and are finally getting out to explore! Last week, we drove to Wynwood which is well known for it’s street murals. For a girl who loves a pretty backdrop, this is such a fun spot! We brought my new bike and strolled the streets. [Read more…]
In December, I started planning the decor for our Florida home and I have been really looking forward to sharing it with you!!! Above is the moodboard I came up with. The brass bed is definitely the star of the show! I was planning tropical wallpaper, but since we switched rooms with Don, that has been nixed until I can find a better place for it. [Read more…]
Hello there! I am on a quest to decorate our new house- room by room. When we first arrived, I set Don’s books neatly in his room and then continued to unpack the house. Within minutes (I’m not exaggerating at all) every book was spread across the room. It was a mess! So I went on the hunt for a bookcase- because who can live that?! Lol! [Read more…]
Moving to our house in Florida, one of my first priorities was getting my desk set-up (since I work from home and all). The weeks heading up to our move were a little hectic because we were packing everything up and I was finding new furniture for our beach house. [Read more…]
