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!

HGTV Magazine is one of my very favorite things to read- I get so much inspiration in each issue… and now… wait for it… My freakin’ piano is featured!!  AHHHH!!!  Who knew painting my piano green would be our golden ticket to the HGTV train?!?
If you haven’t picked up the October issue, you really should.  Then you should frame page 54… and then maybe put it above your bed.  Hmm, too much?
The editors at HGTV Mag called and asked me all about my color choice for the piano.  I love that they included my quote about “spunk”… In 7th grade I was given the nickname “Spunky” from one of my teachers.  I guess it hasn’t gone away!!

Okay, now I have to mention the light sconce.  Our blog sponsor Brad from Lucent Lampworks custom made it for me!  I explained my vision and then the two of us built it together (I kind just smiled and Brad did all the work)
Brad is so creative and amazing at his craft!  If you want lights that go far beyond the run of the mill, in-stock options check out Lucent!
I also have to thank our friend Stacy from Salvatori Photography.  She came over to help me take pictures of my piano- and man that lady takes awesome pics!  If you’re in the PA area give her a call!
Alright, I’ve got to go run around the block or do something to burn off all this excited energy!! (If you know me well, you know there’s about a 2.7% chance of me running-ha!)
We’re so excited and thankful for this awesome feature and are just feelin’ pretty darn blessed by all of you and your support!  Thanks a million guys!!
