For the past two or three months, I’ve been gearing up for a three bedroom renovation project for some clients with quite the anticipation. My clients have been looking forward to updating and changing out the brown tile in all three bathrooms and making each bathroom a little unique than the other. They are very modern and clean in their style so I’m giving them a modern vibe in each space. Before In this post, I’m sharing with you the first phase of the boy’s bathroom renovation project. For this space, I wanted it to feel bright and cheerful since they have two little boys, but with modern farmhouse flare. Initially, as I was coming up with a design board, I drew inspiration from other bathroom photos on the Internet then came up with my modern design plan for the bathroom. Since blue is a common color for boys, I…

This year I am planning to do something fun that will allow me to serve clients in the Oklahoma City area by helping you update and spark joy in one room in your home, but maybe on a small budget. Many of you probably have a good foundation for a room, but for some reason, it lacks the pizazz or cohesion you’re wanting for a well styled space. You may have the main furniture of a room such as a bed and dresser or a sofa and media console, but it’s the finishing touches like wall art, pillows, vases, rugs, etc. that may be lacking or maybe you’re “over” the old accessories and you want something new and fresh. No matter what your story is, I want to help you. This year I am putting together the Let’s Decorate Shopping Trips where either a group or an individual can go…

When you want to sell your home quick and for the best price, I always recommend staging it. Home staging is an essential key to making the best first impression on buyers. Buyers usually start their home search online so a photo of a home that is well staged will get more attention than a home that isn’t staged or is vacant. Buyers usually make their decision about a home within the first 3 to 5 seconds so if your home doesn’t catch their attention, they are going to move on quickly to the next listing. Home staging can mean the difference of your home selling for the highest price or sitting on the market for too long and having to reduce the price after 30 days or more. Typically, price drops are higher than the cost of home staging. The estimate of home staging costs can vary between 0.03%…

One of my favorite rooms in my North Carolina project was the entryway. I just loved the long wide open hallway and the grandness of the space because of the wood paneling wrapping the hallway. It is beautiful and simple and only needed a few simple elements to style the space and make it feel more welcoming. [This post contains affiliate links, which means I may receive a commission if you make a purchase after clicking on a link.] At the front of the entryway, I placed a small rug at the doorway just to capture the dirt that someone might have on their shoes as they walked into the home. Since the hallway was really long, I thought it would be better to add a longer running to the middle of it to help balance the space and draw more attention to the center where the entry table rests.…

In August I had a chance to visit my cousin and her partner in North Carolina and decorate their entire 2-story house in six days. It was such an incredible, yet fast trip and I literally had nine spaces or rooms in their house to decorate in a short period of time. Luckily, they already had quite a bit of furniture from our previous designing experience when they bought their first lake home a couple of years ago. That cut down on some of my time and I had some really great pieces to work with right off the bat, like this dining room table and chairs. Their new dining area sits just off to the side of the open concept kitchen and living room area and surrounded by high wall panelling and tall beautiful windows. What I loved about this room were the plantation shutters that were only a…

There are a lot of people that might never hire an interior designer because it seems out of their reach financially. Hiring a designer can easily cost hundreds or thousands of dollars depending on the project so many people just don’t bother. Yet, there is that one room in the home that never feels stylish or quite finished. Some might say they don’t know what their style is, others might say they get stumped while shopping, and others may be hung up on the financial aspect of doing a makeover. Doing a room makeover doesn’t have to cost you a ton of money nor does it have to be a frightening experience. There are simple ways to style a room using what you already have in your own home and possibly purchasing a few accents to complete the space. You can shop at local affordable decor stores, thrift stores, or…

Early August I got to fly out to my cousin and her partner’s home to decorate their new home in North Carolina. I was elated about decorating their home because 1) they have such great taste and 2) I could get away for a mini-vacation with some ladies and 3) I got to do exactly what I love to do–design.  Upon my arrival my cousin gave me tour of their home and saw the room where I would be staying, aka the guest room. It was a lovely space with tall ceilings, beautiful plantation shutters, and soft Agreeable Gray walls. The room was already staged with a comfy bed, two night stands and glass lamps that worked well together. But, while the duvet cover was super soft and nice, it didn’t coordinated well with the furniture in the room. So I made it my mission to find new bedding and…

Hey friends! If you’ve been following me on Facebook, you may have heard I went on a trip to North Carolina to help my cousin and her partner decorate their beautiful home near Lake Norman recently. They bought a two-story home a few months ago and needed my help to fill the empty spaces with decor and furnishings like I previously did for them when they had a smaller lake home. I didn’t have to think twice about making the trip to their home because I always have such a wonderful time with them and, of course, I get to do what I absolutely love to do for them—designing! Their living room opens up to the kitchen area and has a huge and beautiful fireplace. The main issue was how to design for a large niche in the living room that would serve as the TV wall. BEFORE SHOT Their…

When my cousin in North Carolina messaged me on Facebook asking if I would like to come back out for a second time to decorate her and her partner’s house, I didn’t even give it a second thought. I was over the moon and feeling so blessed because this would be the second time they have flown me out to decorate their home. The first time was when they bought an adorable lake house off of Lake Norman a couple of years ago, but since then, they sold that one and bought a home double the size of their first home. So as you can imagine, there were many more spaces to fill in their new home. I was so excited to make the trip a little over a week ago. My cousin and her partner were so gracious to me and gave me free reign to do whatever I…
