Welcome friends! I’m excited to take you on a little home tour of our house – come on in and have a look! 

If I had an unlimited budget, decorating my home would probably be my very favorite thing to do in the whole wide world! But since furnishings and projects all seem to cost money, (imagine that!) I’m working on one room at a time and trying to stay content with empty walls and mis-matched spaces. Here is the progress we’ve made so far –

Our Home Tour

Building a Home

Under Construction – The floor plan + pictures of the model home. (This space is beautiful!)

The Best Gray Paint

The Best Gray Paint – the color we have on every.single.wall.


Our New Home

First Floor Sneak Peek – a quick video tour of the downstairs.

The Entry Way – ALL THE HEART EYES for our round staircase!!

A blank wall in our entry way gets a fresh and affordable makeover using simple decor and a photo collage that really makes a statement!

Home Office Reveal

The Home Office – I finally have a place to work and create!! 🙂

simple home office decor refresh

When Rob left his corporate job, we gave the office a much-needed refresh. The result was a less-feminine office space designed for two people to work comfortably in.

Our Family Room is one of the most-used spaces in the house. It seriously took us a whole year to decide what to do with this space, and I love how our entertainment center turned out!

kitchen pantry

My favorite spot of the house – our kitchen pantry!

Playroom under the stairs

Our playroom under the stairs was such a fun space to decorate!

Small Bathroom

It is small, but it is pretty! The downstairs bathroom that we use the most needs to look pretty too!!


We turned our upstairs hallway into a fresh and functional living space!

Our upstairs linen closet is where we store all the extra sheets and bedding for our guests. We have an amazing cupboard area that should have been plenty of room for all of these things, but it lacked an organization system… BIG TIME. I was able to turn this entire space into something that looks amazing in just a couple hours one afternoon, and I absolutely love it!

teen hangout - after

We turned our loft into the perfect teen hangout for our older kids. I love having a space for them and their friends!

small home office - small office decor ideas

Our upstairs office is the perfect place for our kids to study and work on homework.

light bulb storage

Our upstairs utility closet got a much needed facelift! It is the best place to store all those random household items.

Teen Boy Bedroom

Our teenage son was too cool for any sort of themed room, so this Teen Boy’s Bedroom was the perfect compromise for the 2 of us. Everything is coordinating (for me), but not too matchy (for him.) 🙂

Boys Bedroom Decor in Black, White and Gray

Ryan wanted to keep a lot of the elements in the Hockey Room he has had since he was a toddler, but we gave him an updated space that is a lot more grown up! His Industrial Boy’s Bedroom is simple, practical, and totally his style!

tween bedroom

Leah’s Tween Girl Bedroom is bright and beautiful!

After living here for 2.5 years, Leah’s Tween bedroom was repurposed and made into a sweet vintage bedroom for Mason, It is the perfect place for him to let loose and showcase his creative personality!

a little girl's bedroom that's been decorated with light pink colors

A darling daybed and brightly colored rug, plus a simple art station and reading corner – Addison’s Little Girl’s Bedroom is the perfect place for her to play, relax, and be creative with her little friends!

And no, your eyes are not deceiving you! After seeing how great Addie’s room looked, Leah decided she wanted the bigger bedroom after all, and she was able to easily convince Addie to swap spaces with her! (A decision Addie will totally regret one on these days!) So all of Addie’s decor was moved into Leah’s old room, and we gave this space a more mature makeover. It became Leah’s Modern Farmhouse Teen Bedroom. 

Our kid’s bathroom got a simple gray and white makeover that is clean, comfortable, fresh and fun!

Boys Bathroom Beach Theme

Ryan and Ethan’s Jack-and-Jill beach bathroom was a simple project that only took a few hours to put together!


courtyard ideas

Our front courtyard is a great place to spend the evenings… when it isn’t 300 degrees outside! (Arizona life!)
