Whenever Matt goes out of town, I usually paint something. That something is typically a room, and typically I'm slightly unsure he'll agree with my
It really is no secret that I'm in love with clean, neutrals in my house. Light gray, brown, black, cream, and gold are definitely my
I know it’s not a popular outlook, but I just love winter. I’m a fan of the snow, wearing boots, bundling up, the skiing, and if we’re very lucky, the bright clear winter sunshine. Now, seeing the sun isn’t so common here in Ohio during the winter months, but when it comes out, it makes all the difference in the world. And what’s more, if the sun comes out while there is a blanket of snow covering the ground, it almost illuminates the house. It’s gorgeous.
Anyway, as I was milking this thought, I came across this gorgeous sunroom surrounded in a winter snow. It’s not the image that pops to mind when most of us think of sunrooms (the kind of sunrooms that has terrible indoor/outdoor carpet and are boarded up during the winter months) but a more permanent, all season room which gets light from every angle. I got to thinking about how a sunroom would look perfect as an addition onto our house (who’s going to help me sell that one to Matt?).
Last week, I'd decided that the cast iron longhorn skull I purchased would definitely make a cool addition to my home - and clearly you

Cool comfort is something that I'm consistently looking for in homes. A minimal, fresh, creative space that still looks like you could really live in
We spent the evening trimming our tree last night, although it didn’t take too much time with the decorations I chose to use this year. Since we were going on vacation and didn’t have too much time with the tree, I didn’t want to go to in great depths with it. I chose to have a simple, rustic type theme this year with no tree ornaments, and just a few minimal, but festive, touches to bring it all together.
My main switch-up this year was to use big colorful bauble lights on the tree instead of my usually white lights with glittery accents. I used a plaid blanket to wrap the bulb of our tree and keep things looking like a rustic woodsy cabin. Very simple accessories like a snow studded wooden star and brass stocking hangers rounded out the simplicity of the look.
It’s pretty simple, but I think it makes a statement!
