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!

If I had more time in my life, I would absolutely be spending a majority of it reading blogs. There are so many amazing, talented, creative people out there (including some of you!), and it’s so fun to be inspired by their awesomeness. I read loads of different blogs, all of them wonderful, but here are my top 3, must-read-every-day blogs. I rank the importance of reading these blogs up there with brushing my teeth and eating, so you know they’ve got to be good.

I can honestly say that there are very few people who are as original as Mandi. Her style is tooooootally not my style (much more Monica’s), but you can’t help but be completely wowed at the stuff she comes up with. My favorite project she did was a living room makeover for her best friend:

I mean, seriously, isn’t that incredible?

We’ve mentioned JDC before, but it’s worth mentioning again! Emily has impeccable style: classic and clean, and she’s a neutrals-lover like me! Not only that but she is genuine and thoughtful in her writing (you just have to read this post), and creates beautiful art prints. Plus, she’s my hero because she hand-painted the “wallpaper” in her beautiful office.

Oh good, you’re drooling too?

Kelle takes the most gorgeous pictures of her kids (she must take, literally, millions of pictures!), and her writing is just killer. She has a knack for writing about things we all do in our daily lives in such a beautiful, touching way. Plus, it’s so much fun to see what outfits both she and her girls are wearing on any given day, because man, they are quirky (and adorable)! 🙂 And if you are brave enough, make sure you read about the birth of her daughter, Nella. Have tissues on hand.
