    Maria has talent! She was able to mix so many textures and colors and make it all come together looking good!
    I love to paint skies, and that picture above the zebra console won my heart! Beautiful furniture and gorgeous chandelier above the bed!

    I would love to enter my house. Should I send you some pictures by email and see if you would like to share it with your readers? Please, let me know.

    Hey guys, I forgot to mention where the painting above the zebra table is from….believe it or not Homegood for under $50, I LOVE it too and get a lot of questions on it!! The art above the tv has just one L bracket screwed in upside down adn we just lift it right off to watch tv, no problems. lightweight artwork is key!

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 […]
