#Broadleaf Family Room Makeover

Most of us have this: a room in our homes that “has a lot of potential”, that we use all the time, but isn’t really done at all. Isn’t really functioning at its best. Isn’t really reflective of your tastes or what you REALLY want it to look like. There is stuff in in that room you dislike, and you’ve …

Powder Room Reveal-Part 2

There are times in my life where I am making a decision about something, and there is this teeny-tiny voice in my head that tries to be heard, but it gets completely ignored.

Lunch Room

Lunch Room Makeover & 5 Tips for Designing on a Small Budget

The staff lunch room. Not usually a place that you really want to be in…except to eat of course! Most places don’t put a lot (or any) effort into designing something nice for their staff; it’s often a room with stackable chairs, fold out tables, a microwave, coffee machine etcetera…but style?

Paint Color Dilemma

I have a bit of a paint color dilemma…and I’d love your feedback to help me make a decision! I really REALLY want to paint our living room. Since we moved into the house, I have had my paint color all picked out. Revere Pewter. Soft. Warm. Modern. Neutral. Safe. But in the last few weeks….maybe because of our extra …
