A huge thing we kept repeating while designing and ultimately building our home was – we want our house to feel cozy. And that included our bedroom! So much so, that just about every piece I’ve added to our bedroom has a really beautiful tactile texture that makes you want to sink in and never […]

Modern Western Bedroom Update


Restoring furniture with paint and new stain makes a big impact. But sometimes even just a small change makes a huge difference! One of my favorite ways to upcycle our thrifted furniture is by simply swapping out the furniture legs.  It’s a bit surprising just how much a pair of DIY furniture legs changes things.

The weather may not be exactly warm here in Montana, but the winter cold is already on its way out.  Our winters are notoriously long up here so by the beginning of April I’m more than ready for warmer days. We are still a month or two out from consistently wearing sweaters, but that hasn’t […]

Decorative Plants for Spring


Vintage art is definitely having it’s spotlight and I have to say I’m loving it! I’m often asked on Instagram where I get vintage-inspired pieces that are different than the typical retail prints you see in Big Box stores. Luckily, online print shops have really grown and expanded their range to include vintage art.

Leather decor has been making quite the comeback lately. And not in the traditional mountain-home-with-stuffed-mounts-and-chunky-log-decor-everywhere re Montana.

How to Mount a Samsung Frame TV Above the Mantle


Early on in the building process, I knew I didn’t want carpet in our home. With pets – especially hairy ones – I swear carpeted areas never actually feel clean. It also became apparent early on that real wood floors throughout our house were not in our budget or time frame. Our DIY lists were […]

Sometimes ya just need a quick fix. Don’t get me wrong I love a space transforming DIY, but sometimes it’s nice to find a wall tapestry that dresses up a space in less than 5 minutes. Though not all tapestries need to be 8 foot tall to make an impact. You can find small, intricate […]

I feel as though the title of this post is a bit misleading. Because rolling up your sleeves and building your own house puts you squarely in a save category and not a splurge one. That being said I do feel like there were areas where we allocated our budget more to one side than […]

Splurge and Save On Our Home


With January being entirely dedicated to our kitchen, I wanted to create a blog post that had every kitchen spec included. From the Kraftmaid cabinet colors to the hardware and even the tile. Kitchens are a massive part of homes. This also means there are a massive amount of decisions to be made while designing […]
