I JUST ABOUT HAD A HEART ATTACK TWO NIGHTS AGO. And yes this warrants screaming.
Story fam knows, but this bears repeating. Two nights ago, I was burning the midnight oil, hustling hard to meet some deadlines.
I was shooting all day and was a greasy mess so I was really looking forward to a nice hot shower to conclude the day. I get out of said nice hot shower and grabbed my towel about to wrap myself up when out of the corner of my eye I spy a piece of lint.
A big, fat, juicy, hairy piece of lint. And because I’m blind as a bat, I proceeded to bring my face closer to the towel AND THE LINT SCURRIED INTO THE FOLDS.
Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls. I SCREAMED bloody murder because the innocent piece of lint turned out to be a million legged centipede.
I wish I could reclaim my pride and dignity and say I slayed my own beast. But I woke up my night in shining amour with my hair raising scream, and he killed it instead.
All I can say is, thank the good Lord that I did not smear that towel onto my naked body. I do not know what I would have done. Probably burn down the house.
If I could see this picture when I dreamed of having a van, i'd be screaming. Tonight will be spent catching up on all the work I didn't get done in the day, including candle making!

White floors...yes, or no?
We’ve always been in the timber flooring camp, but for this build, we’re considering a different material and texture underfoot. To achieve the Mediterranean farmhouse feel we’re thinking stone, or render.
The white on white rabbit role is DEEP. There are so many beautiful vignettes to pore over (like this 📷 from @bed.threads) but the thing I get stuck on is whether it will be too harsh or cold en masse.
Weekends are for all things plants. New plants. Propagating plants. More plants. Moving plants. Watering plants. PLANTS. PLANTS. PLANTS.... I think I have a problem... 😅
Happy Sunday! 🌿

I made another shelf styling video for you guys with specific tips. Swipe to watch- (don’t judge me too harsh for my outfit or hair🤭).
The thing about shelf styling is I think people overthink it. Keep it easy on yourself by only putting items up you truly want to see on display. Keep it a few simple colors. Stagger heights, vary textures and always add a plant or two. That’s it!
Making the most of my lockdown days and keeping my spirits up at the same time...I have always loved art and designing things and the lockdown has given me the momentum to take it to the next level which is a beautiful silver lining to an otherwise heartbreaking time in history. I hope you are all keeping well x
I don’t mind living in a small home ( and when I say small, I mean 1300 SQFT with six humans & a cat ) but the only thing that bothers me about living in a small space is not being able to photograph it properly. Seems pretty petty in the mix of it all, but when you’re a home blogger, it’s the biggest deal.
What’s one thing you wish you could change about your home?

These 4 cookies made the move with us! My intentions were to create a series for the reboot of Beauty & The Beast years ago (2017). Unfortunately I had to step back from the then growing Painted Cake business as it was growing faster than I could handle. They have been waiting to be photographed for literally 3.5 years. So now their wait is over and they can retire as an old crusty cookie should! Goodbye pretty cookies. I’m sure that you tasted good in the beginning. 😋

Happy Sunday! Sam and I took a few minutes to decorate our mantle with a new piece we just made two days ago! It’s a larger version of our desert Taylen and is giving me all of the warm vibes 😎
When we style our mantle we try to always have a focal piece that really brings the room together. Then we add a few different sized vases and our friend Jessica at @reefrainaria.shop made these gorgeous custom books that we just added to our mantle decor 💕
What are some of your favorite things that you style your mantle with? 👇🏽👇🏽
Mixing Textures 💛 | One of your best tools in design is texture! Mixing objects of a specific theme with varying textures can help you create a unified design that 'pops' to the eyes and feels original. This bedside lamp is a perfect example of it 🌿 | Beautiful photo by @jessicajalexander & designed by @puresaltinteriors
Spent all day in the sun yesterday and we are tired! And we’re about to do it all over again today. I can’t tell you how much I love summer (yes I know it’s spring but it feels like summer here 😅). I’ll take 100 degree weather over the slightest bit of chill any day! Are you a warm or cool weather kind of person? #liketkit http://liketk.it/2PvwR @firstname.lastname@example.org#LTKhome
Jus’ me. I wasn’t going to the extreme of putting my three price on again to look half decent, but some nice trousers will suffice aye? Although they draw perfect attention to how disproportionate my body is to the length of my legs.
Wishing our Memorial Day Weekend was looking a bit more like this and little less rainy down here in Florida! 🌂🌧⛈•
Although, can’t complain too much since were still putting this beautiful, COVERED, outdoor space to good use! ⠀
Hellooo grilling without getting drenched!!•
Happy MDW! Have fun and be good to each other, friends! 💫•⠀
I’m gonna be real for a sec. This is what today looks like. I created a work station in my unfinished room because my husband and kids are buzzing around the house. I transplanted the computer and desk chair from our office. Working on wrapping up a design today for some sweet clients. Hope you guys all have a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend!
the next few days are gonna be scorchers and im not excited about it 😰 i find im way less productive and more prone to feeling down on those days. if i could find somewhere to live where the weather was spring all year round i’d be a happy camper...any ideas? 🌿🌸😉

There’s no place like your own bed.
Staging a master bedroom so that a home buyer can make an emotional connection helps them see themselves living in that space. For me, furry blankets, fluffy pillows, lots of light, and plenty of space to breathe would help me imagine myself living there. ☀️ What details would create an emotional connection to a master bedroom for you? 💞 #gooddeedsdesignhomestaging

These gray and rainy May days make me appreciate my little bright interior. No matter what the weather is, my casita stays shining! ✨ 📸 @provokephotography
Додали трішки світла на балконі.
Ліхтарики на сонячних батареях чудово дивляться на решітці з плющем😍
Тепер виникла ідея додати таких ліхтариків в дітей на вікнах. І можливо на перилах балкона другого поверху...ну коли вони з'являться😀
Гарного вам вечора! #pyshchyk_home #pyshchyk_balkony
Three things about this photo: 1) I bought six of these pretty blue glasses at an antique store two years ago. I spotted them across the room and ran walked to them silently hoping no one else would notice them 😂 . 2) I needed coasters and surprisingly my first thought was to make them. Usually I’d just head over to HomeSense and pick something up but all this time at home has brought back my love for DIY. And I got to use these coastal @calicocorners leftover fabrics so that’s a win ⚓️🌊☀️. 3) The tutorial for these DIY reversible fabric coasters is on the blog, along with 16 other summer projects from other bloggers participating in the #seasonalsimplicity series. Link is in bio.
Now who’s ready for drinks out on the porch?
I know we aren’t supposed to play favorites, but... this one is mine! ⠀
Each mini painting is is 5” x 5” in an 11” x 14” ultra thick, 8 ply museum gallery mat in natural white, which conveniently fits into the standard size frame of your choice so that framing is easy for you. 👌🏻 I love the dramatic look of the weighted mat around the small artwork, don’t you? ⠀
The last #mayminimondays collection - Color Study Minis will be in the shop at 10:00 AM CST tomorrow, Monday, May 25.

Loving everything about this new bathroom project just wrapping up designed by @klinteriors! Can’t wait to see more!
If I could give myself advice when I first moved in 7 years ago, I’d tell myself to take it slow. Don’t buy cheap furniture that won’t last, don’t buy expensive things that are trendy, wait and see how you use the house before you really start to commit to the layout, and don’t paint your fucking floors black (yeah I did that.) What design advice would you give yourself when you were younger?
Good morning! After a couple requests I’m sharing another view of the breakfast nook! To complete the space & add some more storage until we redo our whole kitchen, we added a pantry cabinet as well. It is from Ikea & I painted it and added new hardware to match the built-in in our living room. Every time I walk in here I get so happy 🤍 Have a wonderful Memorial weekend!!!

It’s the most wonderful time of the year!
Some may think that I’m talking about Christmas and while I’m a HUGE fan of that, the Most Wonderful Time Of The Year is the season we are stepping into! Anything after May Long is just the best. ☀️
My grass is turning green, I planted my garden today, have a hint of a tan, and had bbq chicken for dinner. Summer is a comin and I’m HERE for it!
You know what else I’m here for? @ikeacanada re-opened it’s doors and I hear @homesensecanada in Winnipeg is doing the same this Thursday.
💃🏽 YAHOOOOOOOOO 💃🏽
ps I also felt like “They see you when you’re sleeping” would have made a good opening line for this caption
