Building A House - Part 1

Walking construction sites, daily trips to Lowe's, and talking floor plans and finishes around the dinner table has pretty much always been a way of life growing up in a family of home builders. For the past 7 months, Michael and I have been building a house of our own, so every spare minute has been dedicated to designing, planning, and constructing. Our move in date is fast approaching so I wanted to share some insight about the design process thus far. Michael and I planned everything from the ground up, which could be pretty intimidating... Fortunately for us, I have a rockstar for a dad who has been building forever and makes the process really manageable and exciting!  Let's talk floor...

China Cabinet Style

Is there anything more fun than a floral painting tucked into a pile of dishes?!? I love how adding a piece of original art dresses up this hutch and adds some personality. If you can't tell, I'm seriously crushing on lots of neutrals with splashes of blue accents... totally gorgeous! This china cabinet features one of my newest pieces, "July Blooms." It's the first of many 10" x 10" pieces... I'm obsessed with this size!

Styling an Entryway

Styling an entryway can be completely overwhelming. It's amazing how much time it takes to place a few objects on a table! Thank God for Pinterest - am I right?!? My husband has the great pleasure of being married to a lady who has to rearrange every decoration in the house at least once every three weeks. Lucky him! While I was setting up this console, he was waiting to play a game of tennis with me - racquet in hand and tennis shoes on. Sorry babe!  My brother built this console for me from some salvaged barn wood and I'm totally in love with it! I love styling it around my newest painting or the seasons. And right now, I absolutely love this look for...

Pink and Orange Baby Girl Nursery

Oo la la!! I'm totally in love with this baby girl's super chic nursery!! And it's SO FUN to see my "Pink and Orange Ballerina" painting hanging in her new home! Don't y'all just love how it ties in with the colors in that area rug?! So fun!   It's always such a treat when you truly connect with a client and that's exactly what happened with this particular piece. I actually teared up when I read these sweet words she wrote! "Words cannot describe how much I loooove this painting. It looks perfect in my daughter's nursery. This artist is extremely gifted. To top it off, she is very kind and wonderful! Each time I walk into her nursery, I can't help but smile at the...

Home Sweet Home

So, I have an obsession with decorating my house. I stalk Joss & Main, Uttermost, Pottery Barn, and Restoration Hardware on a daily basis and my absolute favorite thing to do is peruse HomeGoods for fabulous inexpensive finds. My entire house is neutral and blue and I absolutely love mixing rustic elements with anything glam. By far, my favorite piece in my house is this oversized coffee table - y'all, this coffee table is MASSIVE! It makes such a bold statement in my living room, literally everyone who comes over says something about it... I mean who wouldn't love those gorgeous, chunky baluster legs.  My husband's favorite piece is my Ram's Skull painting. You can see it's now the centerpiece of my gallery wall. This...
