Our sweet old girl Tulip has crossed the rainbow bridge 🌈 (swipe to see her sweet face) -
-
-
She came to us as a 3 month old rescue pup with birth defects and the sweetest feistiest personality.  She saw us move into this house, add to our family and ran the pup pack. -
-
-
She never met a person or child she didn't love or would flop over for belly scratches for. She is so dearly missed ❀  I know you'll team up with Kaia and dive into a pool of cheese followed by a roll around in all the of the muddy spots you can find -

2 of our pups are snoozing in here as it's nice and cool, thanks to @tiltsmarthome blinds. #sponsored -
-
-
It used to get SO hot with the afternoon sun just heating up the house, but with these blinds I have been able to #getsmart by setting them to temperature sensitive settings!
-
-
-
They close when the temperature hits the level I selected in the app, which not only helps keep the bedrooms cooler but also my energy bill down.
-
-
-
Definitely check out @tiltsmarthome blinds if you are in the market for super easy to use, smart solar blinds!
-
-
-
And make sure to check out my stories to see the temp control settings in the app + watch how easy they are to use! -
-
-
I am thrilled with these so far and am loving them as are the younger human and furry members of the fam! #tilt

I brought out this stunner that used to live in my office (a la fall '18 ORC). -

It's way down on color but a massive punch of pattern and I luurrvvee it. (Picture me karate chopping mixed with cha-cha-cha'ing πŸ’ƒ)

What do you call a...

One Room Challenge Week 1: Mom’s Oasis, The Design!!

I can’t tell you how excited I am to share that I’m guest participating in the One Room Challenge, (ORC)this season for the first time! Β It’s a biannual, 6 week room transformation hosted by the lovely Linda at Calling It HomeΒ and is consists of a group of 20 designers and any guest participants that want to make over a room! We share the process from design ideas or moodboard to (hopefully) completion of the project for the final reveal on week 6.

I’ve been having a blast designing a space in our home that has been rather neglected and forgotten about and I hope to have an amazing space to call my very own when it’s complete! That’s right peeps, I am creating my very own Mom’ Only Clubhouse, the Mom Haven, the Mom Cave, the Mom’s Casa and You’re Not Invited, the Save Me From My Kids Retreat. Β My own space where I can relax, gasp actually READ a book! Β Maybe even do some work or enjoy a glass (3/4 bottle) of wine.

This little room, emphasis on little, is a whopping 64ish sq ft. Β It’s only 7’6 by 8’6 in size with a 10ft ceiling. Β Tiny is a good word to use and until now it hasn’t had much of a purpose. Β The house’s original plans (which we snagged when we were doing our kitchen reno) show it designated as a wine cellar, however it’s carpeted with a big closet that goes under the stairs. Β I wouldn’t use it as a wine room, although I do enjoy myself some wine, I am never going to buy enough to need a room to stash it in cause *cough, cough* I drink it. Β Alas, we had this tiny awkward room that wasn’t big enough to make a real space out of. Β  It was a makeshift craft room for my daughter for a couple of years, hence the awful stained carpet from paints and glue. Β Then I put our daybed (that we “expertly” crafted with our own hands) in here for our best effort at a guest room. Β I had some leftover drapes that matched the bedding on the daybed so I hung those and put up an old mini chandelier I had from our previous house and voila a “guest room”. Β Except no one ever wanted to stay in there because it was scary, and small and SO dark. Β At least it looked halfway decent when you walked by though!

Β Here it is as our “guest room”

 

Then this awesomesauce challenge came up and I KNEW this is what it was meant to be! Β Let’s be honest, what mom gets a space all to herself? Β Even the bathroom isn’t off limits. Β If I run in there to pee and the door doesn’t latch shut, even the DOGS push it open and lay down to join me. Β Really, I have no peace. Β Not anymore my friends, now is the time I create myself a space and do WHATEVER it is I want. So I dove in with ideas and folks, I’m LOVIN it and I hope you do too. Β I want to inspire you to create your own spaces that give you that no kid’s fly zone!

I’ve got big plans that include ripping out carpet, doing a reclaimed wood treatment on the ceiling, 2 paint colors and some fabulous furniture. Β All of this will be done DIY style and on a tight budget. Β A budget of $2000, which seems substantial enough but starting fresh we’ll see how it goes!

This is the plan.

A PINK velvet sofa (entire room was designed around this badass piece!), brass, acrylic, a vintage chandy, black, blush pink and metallic floors. Β Oh YEAH, chicka chicka, bum bum. (ferris bueller anyone?) Glam meets rustic meets modern meets vintage, in short Eclectic! Β I love a mix of styles, materials and textures and this room is no different. Β I want to feel like I’m in the lap of luxury but grounded enough to be cozy, comfy and inviting.

So without further ado, here is what I have to work with. Β This is the room after I cleared everything out.

Sad, I know. Β Flat brown paint, dark with no natural light, one outlet and VERY little square footage. Β I mean one wall is just doors for cryin out loud.

There you have it! Β There isn’t much to show yet it really is that small but I am beyond excited to get started and I can’t wait to share with you all how it goes and what does (and doesn’t) work, wish me luck.

Stay tuned for week 2 (post up Wednesday/linked to ORC Thursdays!) for some progress towards the overall design when I share the paint colors and ripping out the awful carpet!

Check out all of the other ahhhmazing participants and see what they’ve got going on! Β So much design love going on!!
