I was eating lunch with a friend recently and we talk a lot about our kids. Her daughter is 3 and Camille is 2 so we constantly try to top each other in crazy toddler stories. Somehow we got on the topic of area rugs and I mentioned how I was writing this very post […]

With each passing year comes a new set of trends in the interior design world. Regardless of the trends, the principles of design remain. Think of the principles of design as the anchor which allows it all to “work.” One of the most understated, yet impactful elements of design is harmony. When the harmony of […]

I like to think that I’m pretty open to interior design trends. With most trends I try to suspend my initial thoughts until I’ve internalized exactly what it’s all about. I can’t say the same for maximalist decor. It gives me anxiety seeing so much. I need white space to give my eyes and brain […]

So I practically live in Target and every time that I’m there, I find myself perusing Joanna & Chip Gaines’ home line. I mean, how can you not? The modern farmhouse movement is alive and well and I am here for all of it! If you’ve been living under a rock, let me tell you […]

What many of them don’t know is that cleaning antique pieces is easy peasy. I personally think that maintaining a clean antique requires a lot […]

It seems that with the change of seasons people are naturally more inclined to want to engage in a room refresh. For me, I’m always down to switch things up because I like the “newness” of a rearranged room. Jo, on the other hand, could totally do without things switching around every few weeks. 😂 […]

So you decided to link up with another human and now y’all are having a hard time determining how to arrange your design aesthetic so that it’s pleasing to everyone involved. My advice to you? Save yourself the headache and just end the relationship now. 😒 Like I’d actually ever say that. Lol. Not now, […]

I will be the first to say that my home is NOT tidy at all times. Hell, most of the time it looks like a little hurricane has hit; and one has – Hurricane Camille. Let’s be real here – who really has the time to have a perfectly manicured, magazine ready home at all […]
