But that has all changed. I have so much to share about My 100 year old Texas home. Including this rendering! This is what it is going to look like. How awesome is that?

I am speechless. And for those of you that know me well, that is almost impossible!

This is our boy’s bedroom. I never imagined it would ever look this good. I am so honored to have partnered with Overstock to redo their room. It’s a very dramatic transformation and I am so thrilled with how it turned out. The room was almost entirely redone with furnishings from Overstock which included a new rug, beds, mattresses, bedding, a chandelier, and accessories. And I stlyled the bedroom for fall, which I love.

It’s as if the bedroom grew up, just like our boys.

I just finished a fun room renovation project in our home and I am jumping up and down because I love it. I added new paint colors in our boy’s bedroom and cannot believe the impact it has made in the room. I reached outside of my comfort zone and went more bold than usual and I am so happy I did! 

Last week I realized summer was over and it was time for a new project. The double bedded boys room upstairs needed the most attention and really needed some help. If you are trying to figure out which room it is in our home, don’t worry. You have never seen it before. It was that bad.

Beach House Before and After Remodel Photos

Ever since we went into escrow on the fixer-upper Waco house I have been nervous. I can’t stop asking the same questions over and over in my head. Did we buy the right house? Do I know what I am doing? Can I manage the job on budget? All of these thoughts are the exact same questions I had when we bought our beach house in Ventura five years ago. I decided to look back at some of the “before and after” photos of the beach house remodel to help me answer those questions.

Discovering Inspiration for a Room

#AD This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Corian® Design. The opinions and text are all mine.

Finding inspiration when decorating a room is something we all struggle with. Inspiration comes from colors, fabrics, and furnishings to help us plan the decor in a room. But for many of us, the process can be overwhelming. Especially since there a lot of other factors that influence how we decorate a room. 

I recently found a really cool tool from Corian® Design that can make this design process easier. Corian® Design is more than just a countertop material brand: it is a source of inspiration for architects, designers, and homeowners around the world. They have recently introduced the Corian® Design Moodboard Maker which is a website that allows designers and homeowners to create a unique inspiration board for a room.
