The Whole House

One of the most difficult things I find about blogging is naming each post. I wonder if other bloggers struggle with this as well? We are well into the new year at this point and I am finding myself struggling with the fact that it is a new year. 2018 passed like a flash and… Continue reading The Whole House

Holiday Brain

Please forgive the composition of this post, my brain is having trouble formulating proper sentence structure and words. I have deemed it holiday brain. I did not want holiday brain to prevent me from sharing this latest project though, because it is actually time/ season appropriate! A few months ago, David and I sat down… Continue reading Holiday Brain



I last left you with a large hole in my ceiling being covered by poster board. It may have taken a while (3 attempts, but who’s counting) but I am happy to report that I am writing this post sans poster board. After A LOT of discussion of how we wanted to close our new… Continue reading Closure

Attic Antics

Not all projects are what you would call sexy. Scratch that. I have yet to run into a house project that I would classify as sexy. However, working in and around your attic is what I would classify as really not sexy. We have chosen to prioritize each project in not what is immediately pretty,… Continue reading Attic Antics

Coordination is Key

I finally made fabric decisions for my master bedroom. It is exciting and relieving! This may seem like a silly statement to make. I do this for a living. Why is this a big deal– I coordinate rooms for people every day? However, as I tell my customers, making decisions for yourself is a real… Continue reading Coordination is Key


We Paint!

Confession- fixing up your house whilst also running a business and managing a personal life is a lot. It doesn’t leave much down time for fun side hobbies, say blogging, and when time does free up binging Netflix on the sofa becomes incredibly appealing. That being said, I just returned from a much needed vacation… Continue reading We Paint!


Sand it like you mean it…

I didn’t mean to disappear on you for that long. A mix of allergies, sinus infections, and bronchitis has decided to attack me this spring. On a completely separate thread from the intent of this blog, if anyone has any suggestions on remedies- I am all ears! Now back to my fixer upper! One of… Continue reading Sand it like you mean it…

Project- Home

Hi, It’s been a long time, I shouldn’t have left you. 90’s music reference anyone? Anyone? That song may or may not have been my jam at one point in my life. Anyway… Life has been very full since we last chatted, hence my hiatus. That fullness has been a mix of a whole lot… Continue reading Project- Home


The Louisiana Flood of 2016

This post is a mixture of heartbreak, awe, gratitude, and pride. This past weekend my hometown and state were devastated by massive flooding. South Louisiana is underwater and the news is not covering it. I have out of state family that was not even aware of the crisis situation that southern Louisiana currently finds itself… Continue reading The Louisiana Flood of 2016
