    Electric Fireplace before and after!

We are not diy people so I wanted a unit that is easy to install as well as a simple aesthetic.  Modern Blaze has several size options as well as all in one units that include the…

    Let’s talk rug sizes!

    … Today, I am going to be chatting a little about how to chose the right rug size for each area of your home.  Now, let me just say, there’s no right or wrong here.  I am an interior designer and learned all the things in design school, but you ultimately have to pick rugs that are right for you and your family.  Sometimes you just have to reuse what you have as well.  I totally get it.  I switch and swap our rugs all of the time!  Having rugs in your home is important and here’s why: Did you know that rugs act as an air filter in each…

    Lighting throughout our home

    … Hi!  I’m sharing our lighting throughout our home with you guys today.  We still have our master bedroom and guest bedroom fans to update, but I thought I’d go ahead and share room by room.  Lighting is so important in a home.  Good general lighting improves mood, creating warm + bright ambiance rather than a gloomy dark space.  One of the easiest ways to add value to your home as well as change the appearance of the space is to simply change out the lighting.  I’m going to share our not so builder grade budget lighting we have throughout our home.
