We are into week six of the One Room Challenge, an online design event started by Linda at the blog Calling It Home, that challenges featured designers and guest bloggers to re-imagine one space in the span of six weeks (this time the challenge was extended to seven weeks due to the storms and wildfires). This week […]
Do you ever make a decision and then secretly agonize over it? It happened to me with this week’s task for the One Room Challenge. As you know, I decided to paint my handrail in my foyer to transform it from an orange-y oak to a black banister. I have been seeing it on all […]
I see a red door and I want it painted black. OK maybe it wasn’t red, but it was white and now its black and I love it. The first thing on my list for the One Room Challenge was the interior of our front door. And all I can say is, if you want […]
This is the third piece in the Office Overhaul Series. This is what the office looked like after we dumped the old rug and removed a ton of clutter, but before we started the overhaul.

Until recently. My husband […]
If you have a wood-sided house, painting the exterior of your home is one of those home maintenance expenses you love to hate. A nicely painted home is essential for good curb appeal and to stay within acceptable social norms 😊, but no one really wants to spend the money on it. It would be […]
Space and Storage. Everyone wants it and no one ever seems to have enough of it; excepting for the small, small-house contingent, who’ve made their tiny Murphy bed and can now lie in it. The rest of us relish our personal and family space, our work and storage spaces. Messy lives crave order in some […]
Inspired by St. Patrick’s Day weekend, we’re highlighting six historic green paint colors for your Maison Mass! The Backstory I will admit it, I hate making decisions about paint colors for my house!
