This is it – the final week of my first 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 […]
I feel like the only person celebrating Christmas that doesn’t own a holiday-themed pillow and I am out to remedy that this year. I found a great neutral option at Home Goods for my blue living room, but need to buy some for the more oft-used family room. In my searches, I’ve put together a […]
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 […]
As part of a mantel makeover in my living room, I updated a pair of drum shade sconces with leftover fabric from a reupholstery project to create custom fabric lampshades.
We are into week five 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.

It’s week three of the One Room Challenge and the foyer is progressing. Full stop, no qualifiers. In truth, I had hoped I’d be a bit further along. But life has conspired to intervene and I suspect, despite my planning, it will be a sprint to the finish line to get everything accomplished. This week […]
It’s a slow news day, or translated: I’ve not been very enterprising. Life and a lawn full of leaves have intercepted my creativity. However, in my recent effort to clean and rid the cellar of all extraneous things, I did stumble upon an old project. Rather, I found an old bench my husband and I […]
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 […]
