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!

Ok, so in my imaginary world, I’m an amateur, never-been-trained, but still somewhat decent designer. Then  I come across someone who is a REAL designer, and man, I am totally put in my place. I’m like the little girl decorating her doll house when you put me up against real designers. Ha! (And I’m not looking for reinforcement here- I’m ok with it! I figure there’s always going to be someone who is better than you at everything in life.) Anyhow, remember this antique table turned vanity we made for my hallway bathroom last year?

Well, it was sort of inspired by this picture:
Totally love it. Today, I was doing some research for something else and came across the designer of this gorgeous space above. It was created by M.Elle Design and let me tell you, once I was on their site, I got totally sucked in and couldn’t peel my eyes away from the screen. I just had to share with you guys the beautiful spaces they create.
Ahhhh….this bedroom!
