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’re so excited about the response you’ve all given us to our Creating with the Stars 2014 Season Announcement yesterday!  You’re all the BEST- thank you!!

If you missed it, check out all the details HERE.

We thought it would be a fun idea to look back at some of the projects from the 2013 season- our contestants came up with so many incredible ideas!  We were blown away, and actually as I looked through all of these pictures, I was just amazed again!

We know 2014 is going to be even bigger and better (which almost seems impossible!), but first, let’s take a look back!
