  • DIY Checkered Wallpaper Hack | Teenage Room Transformation

    I am so excited to kick off this room transformation series by sharing my favorite DIY checkered wallpaper hack! After redoing our back room several times to accommodate different ideas, we have finally decided its rightful use should be for our daughter Leesie!

  • Kitchen Island Decorating

    Kitchen Island Decorating + DIY Kitchen Centerpiece

    I am so excited to be chatting all things kitchen island decorating today! You’ve heard the saying that the kitchen is the heart of the home, right? Well, this is certainly the case for my family. We start and end our days in this very spot where memories are constantly being made. Over the years, I’ve heard from a few followers and even clients about their spaces not feeing “done”. They’ve spent thousands on a remodel or furniture refresh, but the space just doesn’t feel complete. The truth is, what it’s missing is styling! And to be honest? That’s my favorite part. In today’s post, I will be discussing everything I love to include when kitchen island decorating, plus an easy DIY kitchen centerpiece that I think is perfect for any kitchen! What To Know About Kitchen Island Decorating As I previously stated, kitchen island decorating should not compromise the integrity of the kitchen island itself. I’m the first to say my love for interior design can come before functionality, but limiting this space to only a few pieces will…

  • We Are HOME After 7 Weeks! | Where I Have Been?!

    After 7 long weeks away from our family and friends, Kyle and I are so glad to be HOME! It felt like the longest 7 weeks ever, but looking back, we accomplished so much while we were gone that it went by in a flash. So…the big question…where were we?! I can’t tell you exactly where we were, but what I can tell you is that we weren’t close to home. We were living out a dream we have had for a very long time! The fact that Kyle and I got to experience this together was truly the opportunity of a lifetime! What were you doing? Please don’t hate me – but I can’t share that just yet! We are contractually obligated to keep that a secret until it’s time to reveal! Were you doing what I think you were doing?? …..maybe! 🙂 When will we know for sure? It’s likely going to be a few months before the big news is revealed. But it’s worth the wait – I promise! Where were your kids? After a lot of…

  • Rub ‘N Buff Colors: My Favorites & How I Use It!

    When designing any space, there is no greater feeling than bringing in the finishing details. While I love every aspect of a remodel, there is just something about those final touches that turn a house into a home. It never gets old seeing it all pulled together! That being said, those elegant touches can be expensive! I knew there had to be a solution somewhere on the market to elevate standard finishes without looking fake. Finally, I found the perfect solution: Rub ‘N Buff! In this post, I’ll discuss everything you need to know about Rub ‘N Buff to feel comfortable using it in your next home project! What Is Rub ‘N Buff? I’m so glad you asked! Rub ‘N Buff is a quick metallic wax finish designed for use on top of previously painted surfaces.

  • MixHers Review | Is It Really All That Great?

    Call me crazy, but I don’t like carbonated drinks. (I’ll drink Diet Pepsi from time to time, but even those I prefer flat!) I live right next to a soda shop and when I get a drink, I like to let it sit for as long as possible so I can enjoy it with less bubbles. It’s strange, I know! Bubbly water? Not for me! My friends were loving and posting about MixHers drink mixes, so I knew I had to try it. They’re simple, delicious, and healthy – the perfect combination! Check out my full review and favorite flavors, and then use my code “SAVANNAH” at checkout for a discount! I love to store my favorite drink mixes all in one place! You can see how I organized my drink station right here. Why I Love MixHers Drink Mixes Like I said, soda and other carbonated drinks aren’t really my thing. But I love a good ol’ flavored ice water, so I tend to opt for drink mixes. I have used other drink mixes with high sugar in the…

    DIY Kitchen Open Shelving | Our Mini Kitchen Shelving Makeover

    If you’ve been around awhile, you know the story behind our kitchen remodel. Long story short – just before the holidays, our kitchen had a major flood that prompted a major renovation. The before and after pictures will shock you (in the best way!!). If you want all the details – I’ll link the final reveal post here! We opted for open shelving in this spot to add a decorative element to the space. Kyle installed these shelves over the tile (linking a tutorial for that here!) and made all of my open shelving dreams come true! The breakfast nook off the kitchen has been getting some upgrades! I’ve spray painted the chairs, worked on the table, added a mural, and of course, the most epic ceiling treatment. These shelves are always in view from that room and I thought it would be fun to add some drama. The shelves were inexpensive, so I knew if I didn’t love the end result I could either paint them back to white or replace them altogether. The Plan For Open Shelving I…

    Arched Cabinets: Why We Love Them And Our Favorite Pieces

    Arched cabinets seem to be everywhere these days. From beautiful furniture pieces to custom built-ins, the design world just cannot get enough of the arched detail at the top. Add us to that list because we refuse to stop gravitating towards them! Today on the blog, we will discuss everything we love about arched cabinets and some of our favorites to help you find the perfect piece for your home. Arched Cabinets: A Brief History We promise not to bore you with the complete history behind these beautiful design pieces, but the story behind arches is pretty neat! Before there were arched cabinets and built-ins, this beautiful design started in the 12th century. The first arch was built as a doorway, then slowly became the framework that built the iconic city of Rome. As more and more people began to love the arched look, it migrated around the entire world! We have seen arches slowly increase in popularity over the years, making this design a staple in modern houses. While we love the stereotypical rectangle shape, there is just something…

    DIY Built-Ins Cabinets | Designing Built-In Cabinets For The Johnson Files!

    There is nothing Kyle and I love more than turning a house into a home. We have designed countless projects in order to accomplish this goal for our family and others, but nothing provides that homey feel quite like custom built-in cabinets! I know what you’re thinking- custom built-ins are expensive! That is true, but it doesn’t have to be. A few weeks back, we flew out to Utah to visit The Johnson Files (Shaun and Nicole Johnson) to prove that built-ins can be done without breaking the bank! We love Shaun and Nicole SO much and spending a few days with them to surprise them with this epic transformation filled my heart with so much joy! We are big fans of built in cabinets, which is why we did them in our own home as well! You can check out that post right here. In this post, I will give you the honest truth of what no one really tells you when building your own built-ins, so you can decide if this is the next big project for your…
