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…

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…
