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!

Becki & Chris: Scrap Metal Sculpture

Thistlewood Farms & The Uncommon Common Law


Scrap Metal Sculpture

So we’ve gotta admit- we’re kind of vicariously living through Becki and Chris!  They’re young, creative, amazing designers, photographers, and just all around fun!  This week, Becki taught herself how to weld in order to make their amazing sculpture- I love that she was willing to take a major risk and try something new! It paid off majorly!
