Better late than never

I went to a Home-A-Rama back in October, and it was freaking awesome. Just about everyone else has posted their pics and points of view, but I figured I’d rather be late that let these amazing pics just disappear into the Terabyte of abyss that is my Flickr account. This year’s Home-A-Rama was located in Westfield,…

A great day

I had a great Saturday, and I hope you did too! It started with some hang time with a long lost friend followed by a an epic, creatively fulfilling moment. I recently re-connected with a college friend. We both share a passion for interior design. Last week, we had a friend lunch date at a…

Succulent Saturday

It finally happened! I found faux succulents on sale! Do you ever stalk something you want for however long it takes until the price drops? Me too! I ended up taking two trips to Target – Don’t judge! With a forecast around 90 degrees for the next few days, I wasn’t sure if Tyler and…

Skills to pay the bills

Ironically enough, I started out in design school in college. I lasted one semester and met one of my besties in the process. Mallory and I had 7:30am classes Mon – Fri that first semester of our freshman year. It was rough. While I felt like I was pulling all-nighters with finger paints, Mal was kicking ass…

A little bit of kitchen envy

Contemporary Before Photos by Portland Kitchen & Bath Designers Pangaea Interior Design, Portland, OR I am never drawn to straight lines or super modern designs, but there are still plenty of features to drool over in this kitchen.

Kitchen goals

I would first like to acknowledge that since moving in in 2013, we have made a ton of progress on the house, however the kitchen still needs a lot of attention. We started from the bottom: And now we’re here: Painted the walls Behr’s Shale Gray, Replaced the fridge with a Kenmore side-by-side making sure that it passed…

Considerations for an accent wall

This post initially was focused on the master bedroom, but since the new headboard purchase, I’m focusing on an accent wall for Eliza’s room. I moved our old headboard into the guest room, and now it clashes with the wall pretty badly. As you can tell, I am working with browns and turquoise. I’m a…

Our Visa Super Bowl commercial apartment

Its a good thing that my then boyfriend, now husband is a fan of talking to strangers. Well, sort of, in this particular instance… At the time we were living in a super cute apartment in Irvington, Indiana. Tyler, said boyfriend / husband, encountered a stranger in the parking lot as he was leaving for…

Happy birthday to me

My birthday was on October 24th. And I love my birthday! I usually celebrate all month, but slacked in my celebration this year. I did take the 23rd off from work, and my mom and I went shopping.   We ended up at HomeGoods – so dangerous! Last time I was there I dropped $200…

Oh Henry

This isn’t my first time staying at The Henry, and its probably not my last. My work HQ is in the area, so I choose to stay here when I can. Its a Marriott (so I get reward points), and I really like the decor. The lobby is equipped with rather large chandeliers. Can’t go wrong…
