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!

This past weekend we did some serious work on the patio! My hard working husband put in 13 hours Saturday and about 10 on Sunday. We’re so incredibly lucky to have awesome friends and family that were willing to lend a hand.

(Look at what was left of our crew.  90 degree heat is pretty rough!)
Before we could have our big work party, we needed to finish the wall.  We’ll be adding a sitting wall, but for now, we just needed the base completed.
We’re not going to give you exact directions on how to install a wall but, EP Henry has great resources and directions on their website and the guys at Stone Depot can hook you up with help as well.
We will share a few tips that will make a big difference between a patio that looks good and lasts, and one that looks good and is a sinking mess in a few years.
The longest part of the entire patio process is the wall, and having it done feels so good!
Now that the wall is done, it’s time to fill it in with stone, sand, and to get those pavers laid!  Can’t wait to show you the “almost finished” project next week!
What do you think so far? We’re really loving it!
