Growing with your home and a DIY

I'm finding that houses tend to grow along with you.

When we built our home we had only two small children to fill the empty spaces.

Years later, our home graciously welcomed a new born.

Although the 4 bedrooms seemed snug at times, it was always enough.

I now have two spare rooms to play with...sigh.

Along with its growing nature, it evolves with us.

It sheds tweety bird sheets for Lilly Pulitzer.

And I'm happy to report that it stood by me when I rebelled in my adolescent home owner years..

 with Kirkland Decor.

It has never given up on me. Not once.

Weeks ago we covered the SW relaxed khaki in our family room with Comfort Grey (lightened 50%)

We are all enjoying the new lighter and brighter room.

For the first time in like forever, I didn't rush to fill the empty spaces.

I allowed the room to breath along with myself.

I waited.

Almost as if I allowed the room to whisper its needs to us.

Ever so softly... I heard.


I scribbled out images that soothed my soul and brought color to the walls.

This project cost nothing.

I simply removed this and reused the frames.

My goal now is to find the perfect pillows and rug.

Does your home reflect you and the stage you're in now.

I'm not saying I didn't love my 80's hair and my king size water

I'm just enjoying the journey.

  1. Oh my gosh, you are so smart. That's what I'm trying to do for the last year with this new house we moved into. I don't want to repeat all the things I've done in the past. Also don't want to jump on the bandwagon with some of the current trends. Just taking my time. :)

    Your artwork is fabulous!

  2. Beautiful! Love the art. I guess I don't have enough patience because I am always having to fill a space... can't stand anything to be empty. Therefore I am always having to change it because I think of something better I want there, lol. No patience!

  3. I simply adore your blog and your beautiful home. My heartbeat slows down and I take a deep breath when I look at your posts! Thank you for making this spot one that is spending time with a good friend! :)
    Love your style and the purpose you bring to your projects!
    Maybe one day I'll even own one of your 'works' of art!"

  4. I used to rush to decorate but am more patient now - I guess some good things come with age! I love your art pieces you created and love unique things for my own home. I have come a long way since decorating country/victorian back in the day...I almost cringe at the thought of it. We had a waterbed too. Some days I miss it : )

  5. Beautiful work! I wish I were so talented. I absolutely love your style and enjoy reading your blog.

  6. Thank you for your reflections on your life! I do feel the same - my house grows with me, my state of mind, my feelings ... It used to be colorful, now it tends to get more delicate, more whitish, more peaceful :) Like me, myself! :)

  17. “Women really dress based on their body shape. For example, Black Bandage Dress I’m very athletic. I have bigger shoulders and bigger bust Herve Leger Dress and smaller in the hip area. So when it comes to Herve Leger, Dirndl Dress for me it’s really about A-line dresses because it gives me a hip but minimizes me on the top.”While there’s no doubt that Lubov and her husband, Max, design for women everywhere, you can’t help but imagine her stamping Halloween costumes a mini-claim on a certain white dress and capelet pair when it was in its early stages. It’s a look we can imagine every woman instantly coveting when it’s available in April.
