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!

  Creating with the Stars 2014 was amazing- we’re still kind of in recovery mode over here! Just soooo much DIY goodness in one month!  One thing we really wanted to add this season was an amazing prize that anyone could win- not just the contestants! We have loved partnering with Apple Vacations® America’s Favorite Vacation Company and are so glad they wanted to be a Creating with the Stars Sponsor!


I had an amazing time on my Apple Vacations® trip last month and I know that the winner of our Dream Vacation Giveaway is going to love it just as much!!  I’ll be posting all about my trip next week, but if you want to see some drool-worthy sunset pics, pop on over to my Instagram feed- @EastCoastCreative

Thank you to all of you that Entered and followed along each week with CWTS!  There can only be one winner, but Apple Vacations runs some crazy deals!
