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 […]


I don’t do a ton of indoor decorating for Halloween, but I do make sure to get the front yard/porch area spooky for the boys. Pumpkins, mums, spider webs, oh my! I love decorating the front door as well. In years past I would put up big googly eyes and white crepe paper to make […]


DIY Day of the Dead Wreath

I have gone a little pumpkin crazy this year. I can’t help myself. Every time I go into Trader Joes I end up picking up one or two or twelve. They are only $3.99 a piece and they are a great size and shape. I have big plans to carve into a bunch of them […]

Scenes from my weekend…

halloween wreath with spider

This weekend I decided to tackle our front stoop and zhush it up a bit. I don’t normally do a lot of seasonal decorating. Not because I don’t like it, but because I can never find the time for it. I also don’t have a ton of storage in my house so, having to store […]

Make a brushstroke pumpkin

Tis the season for pumpkins! Since orange is my signature color it should come as no surprise that I love a pumpkin! We typically go on a yearly pumpkin picking trip where I stock up on pumpkins for our front stoop, but it’s we haven’t gone yet. That hasn’t stopped me from getting my fix. […]

DIY Painted Brushstroke Pumpkins

get inspired with our own home tour


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.
