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!

We launched our newsletter last week- thanks to all of you that subscribed! If you haven’t yet, you can subscribe HERE to get a weekly dose of awesomeness and creativity right to your mailbox.  But, we aren’t stopping there!  We’ve been really wanting to get in the habit of making Video Blogs.  We think it’s a fun way to let you guys get to know us in a non DIYer, non TV Show host way.  And hey, if no one watches them, that’s cool- we still get to sit around with our BFF chatting.  #score  A few things about our Video blogs… for now we’ve named them “Fireside Chats” it just came out of my mouth even though there was no actual fire… and in the spring and summer we’ll probably change the name, but you get the idea.  One more important thing before you watch… this is reality peeps… no makeup fanciness, no perfectly staged background, pretty awful lighting (we’ll work on that one) and just us being us.  We’ve always promised to keep it real and so we’re sticking to that.

Without further ramblings, we proudly present to you the first official East Coast Creative Fireside Chat. Enjoy!

Leave us a comment about what you thought of our Fireside Chat! What great ideas do you have to share with us?  We’d love to know!

    I loved this. Thanks for being real! For a while my hubby and I would rearrange the alphabet letter magnets on the fridge to leave sweet little notes for each other, but I recently took the magnets down since they weren’t being played with/used and they were just falling on the floor. I need to make a frame or find some other way so that we can do that for each other again!

    You gals are so entertaining! Loved the “Fireside Chat” ! Something my husband and I still do is hold hands. It’s our way of staying connected. With all of the snow and ice, it is because I don’t want to FALL but yes mostly to stay connected.

  4. I LOVE this idea so much. This is actually one of my big goals for this year and I love watching you guys on your video! It is so cool to see the face behind the blog 🙂

    This is a great encouraging way to share Gods Love in a subtle way!
