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!

Before I write anything else, I first need to say that yes, I am crazy. If you follow us on facebook, then you might have seen that my hubs and I started a major renovation to our kitchen this past weekend. (To others it is a major project. In my head, it seems minor! However, my hubs begs to differ. Ha!) Why did I do this the week before Christmas, you ask? Right about now, I’m asking myself the same thing! But really, my hubs works a lot, so we have limited time to do projects together, and this past Sunday, we were child-free until late in the day, so after church, we maximized our “free time”, and got moving! Plus, we just got a new oven, and I knew that relocating appliances was in my long-term plans, so why wait?!
 I’m so excited to finish this project, but realistically, it’s going to take us a loooong time to do everything I want to do in our kitchen. I’m super excited that we got the process started, though, and will, of course, keep you updated!
Please tell me I’m not the only one to have started a major home project the week before Christmas!

    Oh we are so alike!!! Do you get the head shake & “look” from your super patient husband who is always willing to help? Of course I’m usually jumping up & down clapping because it is getting one step closer to how I envisioned it & he is usually just standing there seeing a mess! 😉 I cannot wait to see how it turns out!

    YES! My fiance decided to start our back hallway redo! Ugh. There is sanding dust all over the presents…Looks like snow right? 🙁
