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!

    Dang! Would love to come take that chandelier off your hands but you’re a long drive from Phoenix. Have fun at your yard sale!

    Hope your sale went great, I too wish I lived closer so I could have attended! I love the wall color of your eat in kitchen area. Can you share what it is and who makes it? I’ve been on a perpetual hunt to replace some boring beige!
