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 week has been SO awesome so far!  We had a snow day with the kids (woo-hoo!), we’re doing a really awesome KIO makeover, and I’m loving the Blogger Stylin’ Home Tours!  Honestly, it’s like a constant supply of design inspiration!

My tour (check it out here if you missed it) didn’t include a real tree, because we were headed to Disney, so I created a fun, fabric tree, but there have been so many great trees on the tour so far that I just had to share a few!

Modern Christmas Tree

The White Buffalo Styling Co.

Lindsay is the hostess with the most-est! She’s the gal behind the tour and I’ve gotta brag for a second… she had a huge Young House Love feature this week too!  She’s hands down my favorite new blog to read, so check her out!

Desert Domicile

Man, I’d like to be her when I grow up! I love the black and white ribbon garland. Actually, I love the whole tour, so go check it out!


The Handmade Home

Oh Ashley… you had me at disco ball and the world’s coolest rug ever.  There’s so much color here and I’m in love!


 This, That & Life

This adorable mini tree is a “kids’ tree” and I love how it looks against the chalkboard wall.  It’s perfect!


The Thriftress

Everyone wants that magical glowing tree picture and leave it to The Thriftress to score it!  Check out her whole tour for lots of awesomeness!

Christmas Tree & Kids

Now, I’m real tree girl for our family room, but I’m an artificial tree girl for the rest of our house.  I love that I don’t need to water them, and I can keep them up as long as I want (and put them up as early as I want- because blog world works on a weird time schedule).

Our friends at King Of Christmas have an amazing selection of trees and they’re having a huge sale right now.

Even if you have your tree up already, now is the time to score amazing deals on a tree for next year.


And the best news?  King of Christmas is giving away a tree this week!  It’s a 8 foot Scarlet Fir.
