A Collected Home


I love having art on my walls. The collection we have created throughout our home is filled with sentimental memories, personal art projects and imagery we are drawn to. I am always attracted to soft beachy scenes, bold art and vintage references. Here are a few tips about how to create an eclectic gallery wall, this is what was a winning combination for me!!

- Work with differently sized art pieces
- Mix in frames of all sizes
- Incorporate art using different textures
- Use colors that complement one another
- Most importantly you can't really go wrong if you choose what you love!

All in the Details



Styling is one of my passions. I love taking everything off the shelves, reorganizing, and starting a new. Styling makes me feel lighter, refreshed and I love feeling surprised by new combinations throughout my home. It is amazing how by simply removing everything and starting from scratch can make you completely rethink and revitalize a space! Here are some detail shots from our bedroom makeover:

Second Take


Blayre and I finally got around to finishing our top floor! We splurged on a custom king sized bed, and let me tell you- we ain't eva going back to a queen!! It is so comfy, we can all snuggle comfortably now- no one (namely me) is hanging off the bed in the middle of the night. Needless to say, I can now get a goodnight sleep!!! If you have room in your space for a king- DO IT!

We also added reading lamps, I love them, they are adjustable, and perfect for a little reading before bed. I love how the bedside tables are cleared of the lamps that used to take up a lot of room, and we can use them now to stack all of our books!! So easy to install- and Ikea purchases to boot.
