Bathroom Remodel: The Demo Begins

After finishing up the detailing on my bathroom vanity, it was time to move to the demo phase of the project! My custom vanity top arrived last week and looks perfect. I am so happy I decided to spend the extra money to get exactly what I wanted. With how nice the vanity top looked, we realized it would be smarter to work tops down in the bathroom, instead of installing the beautiful new pieces and then working over them, so the order of operation changed slightly!

My January Home Decor Refresh

Earlier this week, I wrote about how I love refreshing my space for the new year. It’s a little sad to take all of the holiday decorations down, but I also love when my house feels so clean and open again! Although I don’t go into full spring decor, I do love bringing in lighter colors and a little bit of greenery to brighten everything up.

In order to balance out the more spring-forward pieces, I try to incorporate a lot white as a neutral. I also still love the look of terra-cotta and might add a few more pieces once my January spending freeze is over!

Fall Home Maintenance Checklist

If you own your home, now is the time to complete your fall maintenance tasks to ensure your house is ready for the winter. It’s important to stay on top of things so that they don’t end up costly problems down the road!

Here are the steps that I follow every fall to make sure my home is ready for the changing seasons.
