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!

learn more about ME + MY BIZ

We were absolutely thrilled when we were contacted by the Village Improvement Association of Doylestown- the team that plans the amazing Bucks County Designer House & Gardens . My mom and I have been huge fans for a long time, and {before kids} made a point to visit the home every  year. I mean, what’s better than being told that you’re allowed to snoop in someone else’s house?! The BCDHG is a fundraiser to support the Doylestown Hospital that combines gorgeous, old homes in Bucks County and fabulous designers from the area. Designers submit ideas for the rooms they’d like to design in a specially chosen Bucks County home, and the best ones are chosen by the committee. This year’s home is unbelieveably gorgeous, with loads of character and charm.

Isn’t it beautiful? And this doesn’t even showcase the grounds! Love it. Anyway, the lovely ladies on the committee asked Monica and me to run two seminars, and of course, we agreed! We’re so excited to be doing one seminar on Upcycling (duh! What else?) and the other on Accessorizing like a Pro. The seminars are included in the price of admission, so there’s no excuse for all you design enthusiasts! We’d LOVE to flood the Designer House with as many RHBC fans as possible, so be sure to check out the calendar of events for more information and details. Plus, there’s nothing more fun than meeting our readers in real life, so you’d be making us really happy. 😉
Will YOU be coming out to support us?

  3. Hi Ladies!
    I am very happy for how successful your blog and you gals are… but…. I have to say… I miss how things were before all the craziness… I miss visiting your blog and being inspired by your ideas and projects… Lately I have seen in your blog a lot about other bloggers, yours sponsors, other people, other stories, and not that much of diy projects…
    I understand you are probably extremely busy and that your life has changed a lot in the last months… I am just saying, I miss how things were a few months ago… for example, I am still wondering what happened with Monica’s stenciled wall….

    • Hey Mercedes!
      We really appreciate your kind words and your honesty! Your input means a lot to us!
      So here’s the deal… DIY projects take a lot of time and money. To be honest for the first year the blog cost us tons! lol. We were constantly doing a project and paying for a project. We’re definitely still DIYing, but we’re being a tad more realistic (our husbands kind of needed us to be). It’s our goal to bring readers 2-3 awesome projects per week and the other days share recipes, other bloggers, cool finds etc. We were kind of burning out with doing a project every single day. At the same time, we don’t want to seem like “sell outs” at all. We talk about this balance all the time. I think that it’s tricky bc for the entire first year we were sharing DIY projects almost daily, so it might seem like a little less DIY, but please know we’re totally still dedicated to our blog and it’s content first and foremost.
      Here’s a question for ya… would you rather a post-less day once in a while or another kind of post like some of the stories/finds we’ve been sharing lately? Just curious what you’d prefer.
      Thanks again for your input!!
      Monica (and Jess)

  4. I totally understand, and I can’t imagine how much time you have been putting into your projects and blog. I also understand that might be time for you to explore different things and opportunities. I am more interested in diy projects than recipes or stories, but hey.. That’s just me!!! You have plenty followers and readers that love what you are doing!!!

  5. Home is very essential things for every person’s life. You allot such beautiful and wonderful image of house and garden. Both is good and attractive for any one. Also garden is increase beauty of home.
