I've always been drawn to numbers and wanted to paint them on the stairs for a graphic pop of color. Smoot thought it was a crazy idea and didn't want any part of it. After some convincing, we went forward and to his chagrin, they became one of the most talked about and liked designs we did. Now, we laugh about it and Smoot doesn’t give me too much flack when I bring up a whacky idea. To be honest, we agree 95% of the time. It’s a blessing to create by his side. 📷 by @sarahbestphoto
Today consist of lots of laundry 😭 But on a more fun not six amazon packages arrived today lol I can’t wait to finish our laundry room. #sorrynotsorry but it’s Friday for me and I am ready for the weekend!!
Have i told you guys how much i love you lately? No? Give me a minute to do that! Three days ago, this little Instagram account reached 5,000 followers. When i first decided to go public with this account, i just wanted to post things that people didn’t totally hate. In the grand scheme of life, the number of Instagram followers someone has doesn’t matter at all. This i know. i am continuously, genuinely surprised that people want to follow along with my crazy life and love of all things home decor. i love getting to share ideas and learn from people who love all of this as much as i do. i had a little bit of a ‘moment’ walking into the Indianapolis Home Show today. A total, 100% pinch me moment. To some people, it might just be a table with some plates and decor on it, but to me, it’s the coolest experience I’ve ever had. I get to do something i LOVE in front of a crowd of people who have that same sort of love of home ‘stuff’ as me! So, while it may not be ‘world domination’ like my cute little journal says, but it is a super cool moment in this life of mine. I’m a nervous wreck, and a worrier by nature, but this is making me step outside of ALL of my comfort zones...and I’m so thankful to all of you for your support! I can’t wait to share pictures with you! Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU 💗💗 •
I rarely show pics of the back of my house .... here is a pic from one of our many snowy days this winter ❄️! Unrelated — I have rounded up several gorgeous rugs under $200 AND some ESSENTIAL tips for a positive e-design experience. The link to my blog is in my profile!! Please comment below and let me know of things you would like me to blog about! I would love to hear from YOU!
Did you have a good day? • I wasn’t as accomplished as I had hoped to be, but the day isn’t quite over yet. Who knows, I may get inspired to finish organizing the linen closet 🤷♀️
I snapped a few pics today to share for some hashtags. Ok, honestly, as my family knows, I snapped a ton of pics today for IG and deleted a ton more. What you see is what you get friends. This is me, doing me to the best of my ability. If you like my photos, that’s great. Thank you so much!!! If you don’t, that’s fine too. I’ve gotta be me and I’ve gotta keep it real. I will delete the mess in and around the focus of the picture but make no mistake, the mess and clutter is there, and it’s real. 😏 (I alluded to it in my insta story)
I cannot or will not be held captive by the IG gods and their ever changing rules. IG is bigger than all of us. Granted, this is just a hobby for me and I don’t run a business where I’m dependent on IG for exposure. It’s fun for me. I enjoy sharing tiny squares of my life, my home or sharing others lives. I enjoy the friendships I’ve gained. I won’t let the potential updates and rules and algorithms get me down. We will adjust to these changes. And then there will be more changes. In the mean time, have fun and keep it real friends. •
BTW, found these sweet little pink tulips at Wholefoods and I finally caved and bought the pink LeCreuset pot on sale because they are discontinuing that colour. Did you know that??? •
AND ALSO, have you played the new hashtag #ourcozyfarmhouse yet?
I almost forgot to post for my girls over at #throwpillowsanonymous ! I snapped a few pictures today before I give this room a fresh coat of paint. Sherwin Williams Sea Salt for the win🙌🙌
We renovated our Master Bath last year and love the color so I'm going to do the rest!
I'm going with neutrals for my bedding and lots of different textures, fringe, and a little metallic sparkle..I think I will crawl in now..Bye!
There are all kinds of changes in life. This week alone, I’ve (@dgohr) experienced uncomfortable change in losing a so sweet Uncle as well as a missed news appearance due to a yucky car accident. I’ve also experienced friendly change as we inch closer to moving into the home pictured here. I know that you, Mama, are going through big changes of your own and feel the heaviness in your chest as you face them. That’s why we created episode 57 to give you a few ways to navigate motherhood through all the changes both good and uncomfortable. Link in profile! ❤️ Oh, and if you want to see more of my four walls, you can follow me over @daniegohr or #ctmhome 😘
|Happy almost Friday|
The natural light pouring through our entire house today gives me all the feels and making me crave spring🌿🌻
Kash’s 3 hour nap let me clean, finish up all the laundry, do the dishes, and I even made spinach dip. I consider that a win for this mama! It’s crazy what you can get accomplished when you think your child is going to wake up at any minute.. definitely puts a new meaning to hustle!
In case y’all didn’t know- @lizmariegalvan has the dreamiest farmhouse in all of IG land. And she is so sweet and grateful to all of her followers! I’ve been following her for a while and every single one of her pictures makes me drool 😭 So talented and #kitchengoals much!? 😍

I found this photo on @pinterest several years ago when we didn't have a dining room in our rental house. When we were house hunting, this photo was always in the back of my mind! While we don't have a fireplace in our dining room like I had hoped (wishful thinking probably!), I feel as though I've been able to bring this cozy aesthetic and vibe to our dining room, which really was the main goal. #foragedhome
Do you use Pinterest as inspiration for your home decor? If so, what are some of your favorite accounts to follow? I'm always looking for more great ideas. ☺
Happy Friday everyone ✨ For all you lovers out there starting to think about Valentine’s Day gifts; the beautiful Discover series by @chaliemacrae_art is available to purchase through our online store 🤗
