Jun 27, 2019

Oh, the guest room. Arguably one of the most important rooms in your home, as your guests will be experiencing the house from the perspective of this space. Your guest room is their little home base in the world while they are visiting. Why then has it always gotten all of my leftovers? One by […]

LIVING ROOM: ONE PIECE REFRESH Are you camp #coloralltheway or #neutraltotheend? I feel like a schizophrenic swaying from one side to the other.  So when I decided it was high time to refresh our neutral living room, I knew camp color was the answer.  I considered new pillows or colorful art which would all add […]

If you already know, you know.  If you have yet to be introduced to Eclectic Goods, you. are. welcome.

When the last dish has been washed after Thanksgiving dinner, we run to the tree lot.  A stubborn crew, my family.  We have chosen the path of fresh tree and garlands.  If you’ve ever tried this, you know not to buy your fresh Christmas tree the day after Thanksgiving.  Inevitably it will be crispy and […]

It’s here, it’s here, it’s here!!!  For so many reasons today is like Christmas.  I cannot wait to pour a cup of coffee and spend my morning combing through renovated rooms created by the featured & guest participant designers over the past six weeks of the One Room Challenge.  And for us here in the […]

What is harder than the One Room Challenge timeline itself? Waiting to share!!!  Last year’s ORC taught me the value of professional photography. In order to get the photos edited in time we had to bust out a one week-early completion date.  I am thrilled to report that this baby is DONE! New quartzite counters installed. […]

Man, do you ever get exhausted from the hustle? Those last minute hold out decisions are killing me.  The smallest minute details would make anyone listening in on my rants think I am positively an insane person.  Shades of color suddenly feel monumental.  Oh, I found the magical perfect vintage rug, hooray, does it make […]
