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!

No… I’m not getting all creepo on you… this is a PG blog-Our moms read it!
What I’m talking about it this adorable ball of fur that’s now a part of the Mangin family…
I’m seriously head-over-heels in love with her! She’s a Bernese Mountain Dog that will be eight weeks old today and she has the sweetest disposition ever!  Jess came over to meet her the other day and was surprised at how smitten I am, so she said, “I didn’t think you were a dog person?”  to which I replied, “I’m not! I just like my dog!”  Ha! What can I say?  It’s true!
I’m not really a huge fan of having pet pics all over the place (remember… not a “dog person”) but I do think some pet art might be cool in the kids’ playroom.
This took me about 30 seconds to create on Picnik.  I used the “Posterize” effect and voila… Pet Art! I think I’ll order it as a canvas this week.
Thanks for letting me introduce my little lady to you!
WAIT! Don’t stop reading!

    Bernese Mountain Dogs have been my all time favorite since I was young! I have yet to own one but I dream of the day that I may. The only thing that has stopped me besides the price is the hair and my desire to have my dog indoors with the family. Good luck and give that little fur ball a squeeze for me. What a beautiful name!
