Tour My Home

Hi friends-
Thanks for joining me on my decorating journey!

I have just updated this page as my home changes almost daily.

My favorite kinds of decorating:
1. Move stuff around the house
2. Recover, re-imagine, upcycle an old piece of furniture

It's really hard for me to post these pictures because decorating for me is such an organic art- our rooms are ever changing as I am rethinking where to try a piece of furniture in a new room or recovering a pillow (can you have too many pillows?) or ottoman. I'm always wanting to "spice it up" and change out a piece or two. But here's what I have so far, of course, it'll change (probably in about an hour).

Stop back by soon and I'll have more. (I update this page as I change rooms which is often!)
Happy decorating & living-
