I can often be found in the garage working on my next DIY project or creating with my kids and husband who are a daily inspiration and the "why" behind what I do. An avid baker, I am often making a new bread recipe, baking homemade cinnamon rolls, or desperately trying to drink the rest of my coffee while it's hot. My mission? To help others create and cultivate a home that they love!

Hey, I'm

I am beyond thrilled to announce my plans for this season’s One Room Challenge. With my maiden voyage in the books this past Spring, I am ready to dive right in and get to work!

Drumroll please……

To say that I have been itching to update our living room is quite possibly the understatement of the century. With my own personal style nailed down, I am all-in on this room.

Here’s a few shots of the before:


My design concept:

This concept features many of my personal favorites. Among them, is a vase made locally here in VA Beach!

Check them out here: Jars Of Dust

The shelves were a DIY we made just over a year ago – you can see more on this process here: Ink & Lumber: A Modern Shelving DIY

The bead décor is available in my Shop

Here’s my current to-do list (sure to grow longer):

Wall color

-Compare Aesthetic White to Harvest Moon by Backdrop

-Consider repainting room for a brighter, cleaner atmosphere

Trim color

-paint window trim (get rid of that blue still left from a previous room color scheme)

Area rug

-something with cushion but that can be easily cleaned

Sofa

-finally something more comfortable and durable to stand up to kids and spills

Shelves

-properly decorate the shelves we built over a year ago

-add storage that’s cohesive and not cobbled together

Lighting

-add any necessary lighting (spoiler alert, more lighting is necessary)

-maybe a wall sconce or two?

Seating areas

-establish another seating area away from the sofa by the main window?

Additional storage

-thinking ahead to homeschooling

-storage for books to be easily accessed downstairs

Floor seating

-Alseda stools?

-actual floor cushions

I’m sure to add more as I get more involved in the project.

See you next week and stay tuned as I’ll post sneak peaks to my Instagram throughout the week!

XO Catherine
