Cottage Grove Project

This new build was already sitting pretty with wood beams, beautiful hardwoods and high ceilings; It just needed that extra push. 

We started with adding in comfortable seating purchased from Brown and Beam in Middleton Wi. With 5 boys, this family needed all the seating they could get! We also made sure everything was washable.

We also flanked either side of the fireplace with white cabinets to mimic the look of built-ins. Two matching mirrors bring symmetry, while the differing accessories bring interest.

Long hallways call for a gallery wall.

For the dining area, we got a new sisal rug that could withstand spaghetti nights, and we recovered the chairs in a thick ticking fabric. 

 

I also got to give the back mudroom a little love!

Fireplace Makeover

This little spot in the kitchen got a little facelift. Check out this side by side!

Progress! New flooring, new stacked stone, and a killer mantle from Wayfair. We also removed the side corner cabinet and replaced it with a white desk for bill paying and homework!

And like for every project, we styled it for a complete, put-together look!

Mt. Horeb Project

This home had lots of potential. It just needed some special touches to make it stand out and feel more custom. We did it all in this space--new lighting, new furniture, and custom cabinetry. The result is stunning!

Two brothers get bedroom makeovers

Kids rooms are my favorite rooms to do. There are so many great accessories out there and I love creating spaces that kids can enjoy! I've worked with this awesome family a few times now, and it's been so fun to update the various rooms in their home. Before the school year got underway, we thought it was time to give the boys' bedrooms an updated look. Here are the two rooms before:

 

The older brother wanted a sports theme; the younger wanted superheroes. The mom wanted each space to function better--a place for them to play but where toys were organized. So, I got to work designing two spaces that fit all of these requests. We painted each room the same color so they would feel connected (Repose Gray by Sherwin Williams). Then, we rearranged the furniture (new mixed in with old) and added in the accessories! 

Pretty accessories $30 and under

They say jewelry is 50% of an outfit. The same applies to home decor accessories. However, it can be overwhelming and costly to buy accessories. So here are some of my favorites for under $30!

Coffee table books are actually a thing and are actually important decor pieces. Put a small stack on your coffee table and then set a decor object or bowl on top. It always looks great! You can always find them at Home Goods or Amazon!
