    I LOVE it when you do 'Look for less!' Keep it coming!


    Girl, you're good. This and the last post (that room has been in my files forever) are both amazing. Hope you're enjoying your vacay!

    You're right, I've never noticed that its a pretty normal kitchen. Hey! I have that fridge 🙂

    I love that light fixture. I'm definitely hitting up ebay to look.

    I love you for this! These last two posts are my favorite. How about the Drew Barrymore offices Ruthie created- love the colors, especially the aqua one with a red cabinet. So chic!

    Paint matched by Home Depot in Benjamin Moore colors are never exact (most cases no where close) and they are no where near eachother in quality. Benjamin Moore also sells different levels of paint, most of which are less or the same price as Behr paint but a much better quality.

My living room is one of the rooms that evolved drastically from when we first moved one. Originally I painted the walls chocolate brown and did accents of white, blue and orange. That lasted maybe 2 years.

Our dining room sat empty for months. Okay maybe it was empty for just a handful of weeks and then we couldn’t take it anymore and put in a folding table and plastic outdoor chairs, but in my mind that was still empty.

On the main floor of our house we have a Florida room. Being that it’s a Florida room it is a considered a 3 season room, because there is no heat in the room. The previous owners used it as an indoor patio with outdoor furniture and it looked like this when we moved in.


Fall is the perfect season to host an outdoor movie night in your backyard! It’s that time of year when outdoor furniture is still outside and it gets dark earlier than the summer which means your little kiddos can enjoy the movie night as well. It’s so nice to transform your backyard with cozy blankets, […]

round up of budget friendly bar carts

Can you believe it’s already November? Before we know it Thanks No. 1 Modern bar cart with patterned sides that looks great as is, but would also look amazing painted a pop of color! Plus it’s only $157. No. 2 This lucite bar cart is a personal favorite of mine. Look at those chic lines! […]

For the longest time our backyard was mainly just grass and a little small area where we laid down some pavers so that we could set out a little plastic table/chairs during the summer. Not exactly ideal for entertaining. For the past couple of years we have wanted to build a deck and enjoy the […]
