Another change of season is here! I must say, with the unexpected storm last month, I am loving these sunny days and (record breaking) warm temps. I don’t know about you, but a new season always brings inspiration to give my home a little bit of TLC. Whether it be freshening up, organizing or updating. We talk all about that in our post Refresh and Organize Equals Energized. But as well all know, this season is known for Spring Cleaning.
Last week I introduced a new blog series focusing on self care. If you didn’t have the chance to read the first entry, catch up with tips on how to create your very own spa bathroom. A trip to the spa is a no-brainer option when it comes to needing a moment of rest, relaxation and self care, but it’s not as easy as setting an appointment, is it? We have to check our work calendar, check our personal calendars and not to mention checking the kid’s calendars! When we have to search for a moment of rest in our daily calendars, something isn’t right.
The word SELF can easily be seen as selfish or self indulgent but caring for your “self” is one of the healthiest things you can do! Trust me, as a busy working mom running my household and my company can be way too much and overwhelming. I speak from experience and learned the hard lessons of not caring for myself and making that a priority.
As February makes its grand entrance, I am feeling the need for a rejuvenated spirit, a positive mindset and some much needed energy. So, that is exactly what I am focusing on this month. And I’m not stopping there! It’s time to prepare my home for bright and new beginnings too, and it all begins with a little “refresh and organize”.
I hope your holidays were joyful, relaxing and full of quality time with friends and family. Can you believe 2019 is off and running? It’s off to an exciting start for me and my team and I’m thrilled to share some news! I have been selected to participate in this year’s Design House Northwest benefiting the Fred Hutch Cancer Research Center. Read More

As a Mom of 3 growing, and very grown up kids, I’ve had just a little bit of experience in the ever evolving design of kid’s bedrooms. It’s inevitable that their interests and tastes change as they mature. I’m here to share some seasoned advice on how we can help their space evolve with their ever evolving style.
If you haven’t started your Christmas shopping yet, it’s time to get it wrapped up! If you’re in need of some gift ideas or a little shopping inspo, read on for my Holiday Gift Guide. From monogrammed totes, holiday scents and Christmas cleaning – my gift list is overflowing!
‘Tis the season where we open our doors to holiday visitors. It could be our neighbors or guests from out of town, kids home from college or an entire family reunion. Whatever the occasion may be – a Christmas Eve party or a simple family brunch – our front door tends to welcome a lot more guests this time of year. There is nothing like a friendly face to greet a guest, but why not leave a lasting impression when inviting them in. Let’s talk about giving your entry an added touch of love to create that lasting impression. Your entry, after all, is the introduction to the rest of your home. Let me just add, “a touch of love” does not require a home remodel! Here are some fun ideas for inspiration on how to welcome up your welcome.
It’s almost Happy Thanksgiving time! First and foremost, let’s ask ourselves a question. Do we really need a day to remind ourselves to be thankful and grateful? For me, every day is a gift of which I am so thankful for… the only thing missing is pumpkin spice everything! This is, however, one of my most favorite holidays. It is a time for entertaining! I love creating an inviting (and stylish) space to bring friends and family together. It’s all about warmth, comfort and a pumpkin here and there. This is what I have my eye on this Thanksgiving…
