Who's your #hero , or #heroine ? What values does she represent? Who does she symbolise? Is she someone you look up to, someone who inspire you?
In #fengshui , it's believed that placing an image or something that represent our heroes could boost our wisdom or success, depending what they symbolise. For example, if you aspire to be an outspoken artist like #fridakahlo you can put her image in that corner. However, I would advise you not to clutter with the same category of items. Perhaps we can add some paint brushes, an artwork of a quote, etc. 𝗜𝘁'𝘀 𝘆𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝘀𝗼𝘂𝗹 𝘀𝗽𝗮𝗰𝗲. 𝗘𝘃𝗲𝗿𝘆𝗼𝗻𝗲 𝗶𝘀 𝗱𝗶𝗳𝗳𝗲𝗿𝗲𝗻𝘁. When I work with clients, I explore what their heroes work with them, and we will come up with a design that is both aesthetically beautifully, as well as speak to them on a soul level
Today's #nationalheroesday Take sometimes to think of all heroes in your life, it does not need to be someone who's alive, or someone's who is regarded as successful by societies. Who has inspired you? Lately I feel really drawn to #joanofarc - her courage is inspiring, as if calling all of us women to rise right now. #itsOurTime isn't it?
once worthless and covered in weeds ➡️ another area to drink! frickin’ heaved flagstone and rock all weekend to make this happen, but yo’ girl is feeling real good and maybe a little buzzed about it. 😏

A bit of sunshine, some new plants, repainted stairs and porch ceiling, a touch up on the door and a new rug and this space is looking pretty good.👌🏻 We had summer-like weather this weekend so my garden got planted and my new drawf lilac tree joined the crew! Head to my stories to see what this house looked like when we moved in last year and what a few small changes can do. .
Now if only I could stay on top of the weeds and get some grass seed on the lawn!
We made the best decision with putting this island in here🤩

It’s been a productive Sunday and such a nice day! ☀️ .
Because our dining space is open concept, I tried to find a hutch that could keep dishes, but also flowed with the space. When I found this ‘storage cabinet’ from @worldmarket I knew it was ‘the one’ and fit this half wall so perfectly! Add some chunky beads from @target / @studiomcgee and a @potterybarn lamp, and BAM! Its now a console table too😬
Ps. That @jaci.daily paint/mud technique I did in stories today is legit!😍🙌

AD: What do you do when you don’t have work to do?? Apparently I do more work 😂😂 I didn’t have work today so I pulled out my Cricut for fun! But it is @officialcricut ‘s fault because, while they didn’t ask us to create anything, they did ask me to share five reasons I love my Cricut, and it got me in the mood to start using it! Here’s some of my favourite reasons:
1. The Knife Blade!!! This is my absolute favourite thing about the Maker because it’s the reason I can cut wood and leather easily!
2. The Rotary blade!!! The Maker has a rotary blade you can switch in that makes cutting 100s of fabrics suuuuper easy.
3. The design software! There are 1000s of amazing designs already ready to go, but if you want to make your own designs, it’s super easy too!
4. It’s user friendly!!! The app and the software are both simple to learn... if my mother-in-law can do it, anyone can! 😂
5. Endless creativity!! When I want to get creative, it’s my go-to machine! It makes my stencils, cuts out my decor designs, etc.
In short, I love it. Any DIY tools you can’t live without?! #cricutcreated#cricutmaker#lovecreatecelebrate#modernoffice
Who in the world is this guy?! Say “Hi” to my hubby! 👋🏼 He’s a man of many names... Rex, Mr Perfection (because he’s the only reason our projects turn out looking good), Funny man, BBQ King but most importantly Daddy. 🙌🏼 I enlisted his help to come up with the ULTIMATE Fathers Day Gift Guide for y’all...and it’s sooo good! Head to the blog and check out what Mr Perfection’s favorite gifts are this year! #giftsfordad#giftsformen#fathersdaygifts

Many used to prefer minimalistic home decor styles, until Scandinavian and boho styles came into the picture. There's something about adding everything you love to your space that makes it SO unique and genuine, what are your thoughts on this?

Happy Monday! We hope you have a great start into the new week! We'd like to thank Emma @squiggly_monkeys today for her lovely review of our little sprays 🥰⠀
👉🏻 "After spending the last week in isolation with 3 small boys, 1 husband and a dog, my care package of air fresheners from @mask_co could not of come soon enough! 😂 I have to say they all smell so gorgeous and are made from Australian essential and fragrance oils, made right in Oz in Byron Bay!" #ilovemaskco
Thanks for sticking around while I’m getting through another creative funk. They come and go and I’ve learned to trust that it eventually ends. I think a HUGE part of it is that I haven’t been alone since March 😳 My schedule has been so off because we don’t have to be anywhere and the girls go to bed later every night. I’ve been going to bed between 1 and 2 and waking up between 9 and 10 every day 😬 It’s awesome that I’m able to do that, but I know it’s going to be incredibly rough when I have to start back on our “normal” routine. I tell myself every night that I’m going to bed early and then I just enjoy the quiet so much that I lose track of time 😫 Maybe I’ll start tonight 🤔 Who thinks I actually will?? Haha
I hope you’re all enjoying your Memorial Day weekend even though it looks a lot different this year. Stay safe friends ♥️

Shelving at the end of the island!!
Part of the 𝐃𝐫𝐞𝐚𝐦 𝐇𝐨𝐦𝐞 𝐃𝐞𝐬𝐢𝐠𝐧 𝐈𝐝𝐞𝐚𝐬 𝐁𝐥𝐨𝐠 𝐒𝐞𝐫𝐢𝐞𝐬!
Styling this super cute pillow all the ways because it goes with everything! Have you ever had a piece that once you see it, you want to order two more to have one in each of your rooms? This pillow is most definitely that! I love the simple yet mid century statement it adds to a space, just a classic touch up! Anyone else end up ordering something you like in three different colors or it that just us?
Y’all! I’ve neglected my house for five years because I was saying YES to everything and everyone else and put our house last. Turns out, in this time being forced to stay home I’ve realized I love taking care of our home and I’ll be saying NO to a lot of busy-ness when all this is over so I can enjoy the simple things, like gardening! Swipe to see a little before and after. It’s not perfect and I have NO idea what I’m doing, but I’m pretty proud of myself! 🙃 I moved the hostas from the front garden to the side so I could plant these box woods and I love how it turned out. Still lots more work to do!
I’m missing company 😔 Ready for a weekend brunch soooo badly. Maybe a social distance outdoor BBQ? We’re redoing our backyard and patio right now, so hopefully by late summer, that will be possible 🤷♀️ Sorry for all the quarantine talk, but I’m thinking about Chloe’s birthday and then the start of school in the fall and just feeling saddened by the state of things. But we are those crazy people who booked a vacay for July (we will be driving, not flying) and hoping/praying that decision works out 🥴 How about you all?? No judgement whatsoever wherever you fall on the covid opinion spectrum!
Packing for a visit to my parents this week. It will be so wonderful to see them after these few months. My dad is high risk for Covid (Lung cancer) so I've been hesitant to go but we've been tested so hopefully be ok.

I don’t really have a theme for the house, but I like for things to flow. Sometimes it takes time and changing things up to figure out what you really want going on in your spaces. What fits for you. I’ve been wanting to add more gold and glass decor. This hourglass was the perfect piece to start with going towards that. If you want to shop my decor and fashion styles you can follow me over on LIKEtoKNOW.it (link in bio) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
Also, If you missed it on my stories I did a simple DIY project with that wooden frame. It was originally a darker stained wood. I sanded it down and then gave it one coat of bleach. I love how it turned out. You can find it in my DIY highlights if your curious to see how.

Sit down and appreciate everything that makes you feel good 😉🌿🌺🤗 🎬
Lovely evening sunshine whilst I give the cabinet a little switch up to see the new works together. The simple things can bring a lot of joy in the midst of so much uncertainty don’t you think?! Hope you had a day of some simple joys.
I love my new hat wall!!!! Easy peasy and just warmed up this space! I changed up the bookshelves a bit too and loving a different view for me 🤣 .... wait my daughter changed up my shelves.. #loveyougirl 🌸 What LITTLE thing have you done to your space that made you happy lately!?? I have been embracing the little things more than ever and working on the beauty of being patient and still!

Little upstairs foyer update 🌱Swipe right to see when we moved in. Then swipe again to see this foyer has been most of the year. It just felt like it needed a little something.
I still am figuring my own home preferences out while letting the style of this home inform those ideas. (And wishing I got a degree in interior design and not psychology 🙄). I was afraid putting wallpaper up here might be “too much” - but I think I like it. I feel like I am trying to figure out the balance of fun and color - while not turning this place into a funhouse. 😂
Do you feel like you have figured out your home style preferences?

Happy Sunday! We’re headed to the beach today. 🏖 What are you up to today?

Both my mama AND my oldest daughter are coming and I can’t wait to squeeze my two best girls today!! I may have waited til the very last second to get my guest room ready, but the anticipation and preparation is one of the things I love best about hosting! I think little, intentional touches go a long way; Fresh cut flowers & plants, water by the bed, WiFi password visible (thank you @southernmill.calligraphy for creating this one for us!), an assortment of soaps & toiletries, and fresh laundered bedding.
What makes you feel special as a guest in someone’s home?
Happy Sunday! We shared a tour of the other side of this room in our stories so sharing this view. 💙 In our stories we also shared a hummingbird building her nest...it was the sweetest thing! Anyway hope you guys have a wonderful day. 🙏🏻

Do you call it a nightstand or bedside table? I usually go with nightstand, although I think I occasionally say bedside stand! 😆🤷🏻♀️ This drawer on my nightstand could have been my secret hiding place, apparently my kids didn’t know it had a drawer, when my son asked where something was I told him to check the drawer and he said, “there’s a drawer??”. 😂 Now I’m mad I gave away the secret! We shared how we made this nightstand, secret drawer & all 😉, on the blog, so click on over for the details!
Happy Saturday friends! 💙 Sharing a new view of our living room with this GORGEOUS and ultra-soft rug by @loloirugs 🙌🏻 It’s amazing how switching up a rug and some pillows can transform a space. What do you guys do to change up a room? This particular rug is called Rosette Collection in Clay/Ivory and in our stories we share a full room tour and close up. What do you guys think?? 💙
Guys, we can’t handle the beauty of these lanterns! 💙 Aren’t they so fun? Do you guys have those pieces that you love and move them room to room? Well, these are one of those pieces! We are completely into the battery operated lights (we shared one in our story) and these flameless battery powered candles are amazing too! 🙌🏻 What is one piece you are loving right now? Hope you guys have a great Friday!
Did I have you fooled into thinking this was my kitchen? 😬 This beautiful space belongs to my kitchen twin and one of my favorite people and friends, @houseofmurphy! From the windooooows, to the walls, to the beams, to the calcutta, etc... there are a ton of similarities!
Megan is one of the most positive and encouraging people around here and she's so close to 20k!! Please go check her out, and give this boy mama and beautiful soul a follow! .
She's also going to be sharing her #amazonfinds tomorrow in stories for our last day of the $300 giveaway before we announce the winner this Sunday, so don't miss it!!
Happy long weekend and be safe out there!
