Super excited to share that my client’s McLean kitchen is featured in Northern Virginia Magazine this month!! I love the story of this kitchen and how my client’s dream and vision came to life. So many hours go into a full renovation, and every one of them is worth it! Honored that I am welcomed into people’s homes and get to work with them to create these special spaces❤️

Happy 4th of July! “O beautiful for spacious skies, For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties Above the fruited plain! America! America!
God shed His grace on thee,
And crown thy good with brotherhood From sea to shining sea!”

If you know me, you know I LOVE summer. This mudroom in a client’s beach cottage just screams summer, and I’m digging it☀️

I know- it’s been a while since I’ve posted. We are here. We are making our way through this season of growth, and it’s exciting. We are learning something new everyday and ways to improve everyday. I say we because I couldn’t do any of this by myself. Thankful for the most amazing team- my family, my fantastic assistant Erin, amazing team of contractors, and JESUS. Design is fun, inspiring, stressful, and all consuming some days, BUT we are looking forward to seeing where all of this hard work takes us.

A visit to the model home of my client’s new build. Today was all about window treatment details and measuring. Next step is fabric selection for these gorgeous windows❤️

Mood Board Monday: Master Bedroom Edition!

Your bedroom should be a sanctuary — somewhere you can retreat to and relax at the end of a busy day.

But how do you create such a serene space?

The best way to really visualize your plan is to create a mood board.

This way, you can pick colors, finishes, fabrics, and decor and see how everything will come together before you begin to make changes.

Double tap if you love a mood board as much as I do! ❤️

Room Refresh! ✨

Adding seating to your bedroom is a total game-changer!

An inviting chair paired with a side table is an instant reading spot, while a bench at the foot of your bed is a stylish space for getting ready for your day.

Smart seating is a great way to use the square footage and make your bedroom feel finished and comfortable.

Tip Tuesday! ⭐️

While I can't wish away the winter weather, I do have a tip for bringing spring a little sooner:

Add some cheery color to your space!

🌈 Swap out your throw pillows for soft, colorful tones.

🌈 Accessorize side tables and shelves with faux or even real plants.

🌈 Change out some of your existing art with floral or abstract prints.

These simple changes will bring life and happiness to your home.

So, what are you waiting for? Get to decorating! 😉

My favorite dream-room accessory?

ALL the natural light! ☀️

Add a little greenery to the equation (either real or faux) and you can completely change the feel of a space.

PS. Love this light-and-bright dining room as much as I do? 🔖 Save this post for future inspiration!

Room Refresh! ✨

Today's simple upgrade? New bedding!

Personally, I suggest investing in high-quality bedding. It lasts for years and you can really feel the difference.

✨ Use high thread count cotton sheets. (The higher the count, the better.)

✨ Choose a neutral comforter and swap out throw pillows and blankets seasonally.

✨ Add instant texture and comfort with lots of layers.

Your bedroom should feel like a sanctuary, so decorate it accordingly.

This kitchen is getting some major upgrades, including freshly painted cabinets, quartz countertops, a new backsplash, and light fixtures.

Oh, and don't forget the wet bar! 🥂

There's still work to be done, so I'll be sure to share progress photos, as well as the finished product.

Stumped on how to style your coffee table?

You're not alone! 😊

Here are a few tips to get you started:

✨ Display a variety of items for balance.

✨ Swap out seasonal items regularly.

✨ Opt for varying heights and sizes when choosing items.

✨ Use a tray to ground your decor and keep it cohesive.

✨ Mix up colors and textures.

✨ Add greenery in the form of a faux plant or fresh flowers.

Once you've arranged your table, be sure to examine it from every angle to make sure it works.

I love a moody moment.

Amber Interiors (@amberinteriors) is a master of this aesthetic. She perfectly balances dark, dramatic rooms with light-and-bright spaces, and the transitions are always flawless!

When it comes to your own home, don't be afraid to take the plunge into darker tones.

Neutral, airy spaces will always be beautiful, but an unexpected shade can add a touch of richness that really elevates the space!

Room Refresh! ✨

Maybe an entire bedroom refresh isn't in the budget, but there's an easy way to change up your decor.

Change out your bedside lamps and add some new accessories to your nightstand like a tray, some books, and an attractive analog clock. On the opposite side table add a nice arrangement of faux greenery or fresh flowers.

Your side tables don't need to match, so choose a different setup for both.

And remember: Keep it simple. Less is always more!

What can I say? Vintage is my love language. ❤️

I love a collected look in a home, which means always incorporating vintage pieces.

These timeless items tell a story and work well with any interior style, from traditional to more modern spaces.

Trends will come and go, but vintage lasts forever.
