Garage Makeover: Finishing Up the Space

It’s always been my belief that if your home is beautiful, in one way or another your life will be too. What’s that Martha Stewart quote on my About page? “Your home should be a reflection of how you want to live right now and for the next phase of your life.” I briefly blogged (like seriously glazed over) my 2 year depression since 2015 when I found out I…

Mixing Styles on a budget

I was curious how cheap I could make a room, in the mid-century eclectic taste we know and love. So, I set out to find the cheapest sofa possible, keeping in mind the sort of furniture you may find in your local thrift, consignment, or on Craigslist. I give you the Bohemian Mid-Century Eclectic space. Just add more plants and textiles. If I were to buy a brand new sofa,…
