Let’s start today’s holiday home tour with my favorite room– the kitchen. I mean, the room where design and food collide. I’m in. You had me at food.  This room is where we spend the majority of the time, and where my kids hang out, so I wanted it to be fun, lively, and kid friendly. […]

We look to experts to give us predictions on everything from weather to sports. Did you know that home design experts also make forecasts? They do–and although they’re not infallible, we pay attention because we don’t want expensive home purchases to be too trendy.  So how did the home design forecasts from 2021 pan out?  […]

Ready to tour my 1926 Tudor Revival Cottage? Friends, call me crazy: in the middle of our busy life of parenting, pastoring, and running a design business, we’re building a house. We are excited but will miss this one!  100-year old house renovation I truly do love it and have had a blast these last few […]

Welcome to my home! I am so excited to give you a tour of my beautiful, family-oriented space. This cottage was built in 1926 and we loved the charm and history! We renovated the kitchen and restored and updated many of the rooms to improve the flow and livability. Behind the pastel colored drywall was […]

Friends, I’m so excited to be heading out next week to be a presenter at the Country Living Fair in Atlanta!  I mean, sharing the main stage with Erin and Ben Napier of Home Town? Come on! I’ll be there giving AND getting inspiration for design projects, so as you think about upcoming changes you’d […]

I’ve been busy with soooo many things, including Ask a Designer Week on Facebook.  Your burning design questions ANSWERED! Did you see my Facebook post about accent walls?  If not, catch it here. (And yes, your accent wall could even be your CEILING! I promise.) I have a friend who moved into a 1970’s home […]

Several seasons of HGTV’s Fixer Upper later, we still can’t seem to get enough of the iconic style of the show’s co-host and designer, Joanna Gaines. As a designer, it’s absolutely the most fun kind of work to create lovely, livable spaces for my clients, whether through full-on renovation/remodels or simple updates. I find inspiration from […]

I have a friend who moved into a 1970’s home in the 90’s. Nearly every room in the house had a wallpaper accent wall.  She promptly removed every one of them, textured, and painted.  Back then, accent walls were…Just So Yesterday. That’s because they were yesterday’s accent walls. Fast forward to today, and cast your […]

You don’t have to tell me, I KNOW why that living room makes you NOT want to ask folks over: It’s drab and dated. The furniture is still where the store delivery guy set it down 10 years ago. And the room doesn’t even work for your family, let alone guests. But change is possible!  […]

My kids are at a great age– the age where Christmas is even more magical and festive than it usually is! So, I was super excited to transform our house into a Winter Wonderland. So, don’t stand still for long! If it isn’t moving, I am decking it with halls of jolly! (People included).  First of […]
