hey there! I'm monica 

I pride myself on making amazing style and design accessible for everyone, regardless of location, budget, or ability! My design philosophy is rooted in authenticity + attainability - If I can do it, you can too! My work has been featured in countless publications, but I take the most pride in homeowners that have been personally inspired by my DIY ideas and have tried something in their own homes!

We’re on a roll here with our Fall-Lovers Series. I’m ready to curl up with a good book, under a warm blanket, drinking a Pumpkin Spice Chai from Starbucks. You? If you missed the first 3 days in our series, click here, here, and here to catch yourself up!
I’m definitely a mums and pumpkins kind of gal. Keep it simple and keep it totally fallish. I’ll be honest, though. Today it was a mere 90 degrees here in Bucks County, so decking out my front porch for Fall was the last thing on my mind. Even though I’ve seen a few places put out mums already, I’m not quite ready to get mine. I did manage to find a few pictures of my front porch from years past:
My house just naturally lends itself to Fall colors since our front door and shutters are a chocolate brown color.
I painted plain old fake terracotta planters a bright, fallish, cheerful yellow which popped beautifully against the mums.  You won’t find that little cutie on the step in stores, though. She’s all mine.


This is the view looking out from our foyer on a rainy Fall day.  I just love the big trees all over our property that whose leaves turn such lovely colors.
I have bigger plans this year for my front porch, which I hope will actually happen sometime before Halloween (we host a Halloween/Trick-or-Treating party every year). But who knows?!
