Progress Report: Garden Makeover

With fall finally reaching two digit temperatures in the day, I’m excited to be able to use our outdoor living space again. With a few additions and low cost items, I was able to add some seating, greenery, and a small barbeque, perfect to enjoy in the mornings and evenings without having to hop in the car to enjoy fresh air.

This week has been one with lots of growth, energy, and excitement. It has meant looking inward, asking some hard questions, and moving forward in both life and in my business.

Unlike bridal suites, this suite is simple, minimalist, and gives ode to the restaurant in a fresh concept. (We firmly believe modern farmhouse can be said without shiplap and jars everywhere.)

Progress Report: Bedroom Makeover

Over the past few months, I’ve been telling you all that I’ve been working on some home and DIY projects. While I have a few more projects to go, I wanted to give you all an update and share what I’ve been up to. If you’ve been following me on Instagram, you’ve probably seen a few of these images already. Inspired by some of my favorite materials and minimal design, my room is starting to look like a place I actually want to spend time in. To be honest, my bedroom usually is the last space I invest in. But with a few simple tricks and keeping a strict budget, I’m really pleased with how the room is shaping up.
