Back in spring 2021 I came up with a plan to refresh our family room! I got started on the project and then it came to a screeching halt. I saw that interior design and decorating trends were changing and felt that if I was going to invest in this space, I needed to be very intentional about the direction I was taking my design.

Almost 2 years later I’m sharing the vision for version 2.0 of the family room design. I feel like I finally have a really good grasp of the vision I have for my home (my kitchen renovation solidified that for me) and am really excited about the direction I’m going to take this space! So let’s talk about the design!

3 Year old Toddler Bedroom Upgrade: Mood Board and Inspiration

I can’t believe it’s finally happening! A little over 3 years ago I brought home a tiny little baby girl from the hospital and now she’s already ready for a big girl bedroom and a big girl bed.

In summer of 2019 I wrote about McFly’s nursery. Since then I’ve done so many DIYs and room transformations but to this day, that nursery is still one of my favorite spaces.

We put McFly’s new mattress on the floor to get her used to sleeping on a twin matress but it was time to finally take the crib and changing table out of her room. It’s already feels so unreal to me that her baby furniture is gone.

I’m excited to share the moodboard for her “new” big girl bedroom with you! As always, I want to make this as cost effective as possible. I’ll use some splurge items, some budget options, I plan to reuse some items she already has in the space, AND I plan to repurpose some items.

Spray paint is going to be my best friend in this room and I’m excited to share as much of the process with you as I can!

It’s week 8 of the one room challenge! Do you know what that means? It means that It’s reveal day for my space!

The last 8 weeks have been insane (to say the least). I set out to turn my 2000s kitchen into a cozy, moody, and inviting space and I think that I’ve done what I set out to do! Before we go into the reveal, I want to remind you of what this space looked like when I started this project. Our 2000s kitchen had stained wood cabinets, large subway tile backsplash, speckled granite, and orange-y engineered wood flooring. There was nothing wrong with the kitchen, per say, but I was ready to turn our kitchen into a statement piece.

So, the moment you’ve been waiting for, the FULL REVEAL of our newly updated kitchen!
