Ok peeps, first of all, I hope you had a great weekend. I have been sicker than a dog. I have one. bad. cough. Yuck! I heard that whooping cough is going around in Utah, and I hope I don’t have it. I Googled it {BAD IDEA}. Now, I’ve got myself diagnosed with all sorts of BAAAAD viruses. The good thing is that I got to hang in my jammies all weekend. Ok, ok, I hang in my jammies 75% of my life anyway, but who’s keeping … [Read more...]

I have broken the spaces into separate posts for organizational purposes, so stay tuned for the other spaces soon! Since the entry way is the first thing you see, I decided it made sense to start there! When I entered Jill and Matt’s home, … [Read more...]

Today I get to be on Fresh Living (a television show here in Utah)! I’m really excited, and I get to share some fun projects that you can make out of old, reclaimed items. Using old windows in your home is a fun way to add a bit of charm to any room. You can buy old windows from antique stores for $15.00-$50.00. Sometimes if you are lucky, you can get them for free if you are in the right place at the right time. If you … [Read more...]

Framing your television is a great way to make your television part of your decor. It helps to make your room feel finished and more polished. Plus, when you frame your tv, you can cover up your UGLY tv brackets! I have posted about a few tv frames (tv frame post, another tv frame post) in the past, and I had my eye on one from Pottery Barn’s Chadwick frame a few years ago. I’m in love with the idea of having the … [Read more...]


Decorating is such a fun thing for me that I have developed confidence over the years to help others. It's a knack that I love. It started small with just family and friends, and escalated to helping many. It is fun for me to help others overcome their challenges in the decorating process. During this process, I have noticed barriers that people struggle with. Interior decorating mistakes are easy to make. Today I'd like … [Read more...]


When decorating a room, correct placement of your furniture is extremely important. You may be similar to me when you deal with moving furniture around. My husband may get a bit frustrated with me because for me, I need to "SEE" the room before I decide on the final resting place of my furniture. After nine years of marriage, he is used to this now, and we move the furniture around the room until I am happy with the final … [Read more...]


I've had a lot of inquiries lately from you renters out there who cannot paint your walls right now. It is perfectly fine for your walls to be left neutral, and you renters out there have no choice. Believe me, I know how you feel. I lived in a town home for four years and all the walls were white.  It really is ok. Don't get discouraged. In fact, when your walls are white or another nuetral, it is much easier to go … [Read more...]


In my opinion you have three choices when you are wondering how long your curtains should be. I have had this question several times in the last week, so I thought I'd share my answer to all of you.General Rule to Curtain Lengths: The longer the curtain the more formal the look. #1. Floor length. This is probably the most traditional look out there. The curtains brush the floor and are precisely the length between the rod … [Read more...]
