Black white and rainbows

Welcome to the most inviting room in our house!  The family room is for “couch potatoe-ing” and doubles as a playroom for the main floor!

The purposes of this room are completely informal and the decor definitely reflects that! We started by painting the wall and closets black and white and going with all black seating. Everything beyond that was about color. The contrast adds to the fun and drama.

Toy Closet How-To


Getting the toys organized was on a bucket list of mine and I feel super accomplished now that it’s done.

In the excitement of it all I forgot to snap a before picture…. But it got me thinking how you can’t have an after without a before…. Like with all things in life that we can only appreciate once we’ve experienced the void or pain.

Rethink your bedroom




After a long and tiring day, the place you go to wind down (or crash) should be the most relaxing place in your house.

With this in mind I created a master bedroom that gives off an aura of calm. I accomplished this by incorporating velvet for plushness and lavender as a soothing tone! The goal is that when you finally go put your feet up you’ll feel pampered and calm in your redecorated suite 🙂
