This beautiful leather cushion by @louisvuitton is part of their Objets Nomades collection which was started in 2012. These cushions were designed by Atelier Oï. To make each little flower a single strip of leather is folded 6 times and then hand-stitched in place. I found this pillow at the LV pop-up in Beverly Hills. Isn't it beautiful?
Can I share 3 real + raw truths with you today? .
It challenges me to settle and rest and to feel peaceful. Like ever. ( #enneagram1 here)
And at home, this feeling actually would escalate every time I walked in the door. 🚫
Last year, The Creator pressed upon me to simplify, to let go, and to rest in His peace. It challenged me to the core! But, I did it. .
It’s time to cycle through this process again with even more purpose + intentionality.
I want to share what I discovered. 📝
1.| I couldn’t see or grasp all my blessings because I was focused on all that I “lacked”. 🤔
I was filling my life and my space with things that didn't bless our home because I was afraid that if I let them go then greater blessings would not replace them. 🤭
2.| I couldn't choose where to place things on my walls or in my home because there was a paralyzing Overwhelm holding me hostage. 😬
The crazy thing is that when I removed the clutter and crap that were not blessing our home there was an overwhelming peace that pierced through this Overwhelm.
I could feel His presence in the quiet. 3.| Through simplifying my space, I’ve discovered His joy, His presence, His purpose. The truth is The Creator fills my void. 🙌🏼 We are in the midst of more changes here. It’s time to create the space for where God’s leading us. . 4.| And this, sweet friend, was what the Lord desired for me all along: His rest + peace + His blessings overflowing for our family. (Yes, I know there’s 4. Consider it a bonus. I teach English, not Math)
I created a free Scripture based PDF to help other women work through this process.
Let my mess be His message to help you simplify your space. 🌪👉🏼🌈
You can find more in my stories under Declutter.

Could an entertaining space be any more dreamy?! I am daydreaming of warmer months when I can bring my outdoor entertaining space to life again! #Repost@zevyjoy
Three cheers for my handy man husband for hanging my gallery wall and making me the happiest. 🙌🏼
I feel like it takes a certain type of person to hang something like this and I’m just not that type. The amount of math he was doing the get everything spaced out correctly was making my head spin. Are you the one to hang stuff at your house or are you like me?!

You guys eat at your island more than the actual table too, right?!🤦🏻♀️ We hardly ever sit at the actual table, at this point it’s basically just a show piece 🤣 #whoops . Grabbed this cute home sign last time I was at @hobbylobby they have so many great spring items. Linked items through LIKEtoKNOW.it, screenshot our tap the link in my bio for deets. http://liketk.it/2JjLF #email@example.com#LTKsalealert#LTKhome
Haven’t posted this late in a while! It’s been a lovely Sunday - really nice to catch up with some friends earlier in Guildford 🥰 We had a delicious roast and a very sunny dog walk which made a nice change! And a super chilled evening tonight 💕 including a brief but very fun chat with @home_atnumber11 about something design related! 🤓 I’ve got some exciting plans for tomorrow so I’d best head to bed!
Talk about a before and after. 😍
This day four months ago I was in the hospital at 34 weeks pregnant for some complications. After the longest week of my life (one day being my birthday🥳) the monitoring ended and I was holding my Margo in my arms. When the first picture was taken, I knew she was coming soon just not THAT soon! 😅
My husband and daughters are the most important people in my life. I strive to do what God asks, then I look to my family to see where I’m needed, & then when there’s time I work on my favorite hobby of renovating our home! ✨
I’m a testament that you do NOT need a large bank account, just a budget and you don’t need life experience, just a style of your own. Make your house a home so you can uplift the people who live inside it. They are always the most important. 🏠

design based on nature ✖️concrete, slate, and wood to warm it up
Two of my people in their most natural state: Josh, sipping a latte and designing the next project for Raines World, and Georgie, napping.
Do not @ me on my spring greenery. The theory is, the more plant life you bring inside the home, the less agonizing the lack thereof outside the home. This is science. Try it, let me know how it goes for you.
Monday morning design inspo! I love the vibe in this gorgeous kitchen. The natural light is just 👌😍 the lucky owners of this kitchen are Jules and Guy Sebastian. I would personally love to see what the rest of their house looks like. It's definitely got a vibe that i love!! #designcrush
Cozy Sunday around here, perfect day to do some rearranging. Who else likes to move around art and accessories often? 🙋🏽♀️ #sundayvibes

Spent the weekend styling gallery walls at my mamas house for her Christmas present. Styling a good gallery wall is one my fave things to do - sharing my tips in stories this afternoon when we get back from Grandmas! Her home is a traditional / transitional style but she’s wanting to mix in a little more mod design. It’s amazing what a cool wall can do for a space. ( I’ve got a fool proof method for making a stunning gallery wall - trust me, you can do it!) #diyhomedecor
happy sunday guys! 🍃💕 every sunday I prep my morning smoothie for the week ahead, making it super easy to grab instead of having to make it every day. because it’s primarily greens + citrus, it stays fresh which is really nice. I blend greens (kale and/or spinach, cilantro, and watercress), celery, cucumber, zucchini, lemon, ginger, pineapple & my #seedcycling seeds (this week it’s pumpkin & flax) + about 3 cups of @luckyironfish water. so nourishing and kicks off my day with about 4 servings of veggies and an iron boost! what little thing do you do each week to make a nutritions life a little easier for you? ✨ hope you’re having a great start of the week! ❤️
I’m in Switzerland for work, but Darius has been a trooper and continued cracking on at the house, today he painted another coat on our gigantic wardrobes which were made by my bro and Pa, getting so close to having a few rooms complete now!!
So today we finally took down the tree 🌲 😂
I was done with all things Christmas the very next day but hubby really wanted to keep it longer. So here we are almost end of January finally tearing down the decor. Next time I pull it out again I will have a toddler ready to destroy it 😂 until then I am going to enjoy this super clean empty house feeling✨ #christmascleanup
Do we live in the age of flakiness? I was supposed to host a book club that I am a part of today and not a single person who RSVP’d yes showed up. Not even the girl who got the group together in the first place. I don’t get it! I am so done with flakey people. My mom always said, “you can count your true friends on one hand” and the older I get, the truer it becomes. Anyway, I’m not too vexed cause now I have a clean apartment and a bottle of wine to myself and no work tomorrow!
Tea and toast (and orange juice) for Sunday breakfast! 🥰
Yesterday’s visit to Cheltenham obviously meant that a trip to @anthropologieeu had to happen. Apparently everyone else in Cheltenham had the same idea because it was PACKED! It was still worth muscling my way through the crowds though because I managed to pick up a couple of these gorgeous side plates and a mug in the sale 😍
Happy Friday, friends! I was still getting questions about the DIY laptop station desk today so I reposted it to my stories if you missed it. You can also find the tutorial for this DIY headboard on the YouTube channel link in my stories.
I fell down a hashtag rabbit hole for the first time in ages today after @emilywheeler.interiors discussed #biophilicdesign in her stories. It got me longing for a shelf full of plants in the kitchen. I find buying plants easy, but finding nice plant pots not so much... do you have any recommendations?

The room of perpetual faffing, the bedroom. We can’t ever decide which way the bed should go, almost wish there was no choice 😆🤷♀️
I had so many questions and messages about the hallway on Thursday, it’s actually a gigantic job to paint all the woodwork, skirting, and obvs the GOLD ceiling of dreams which is the only thing that’s appearing to be less work than anticipated as we’ve totally nailed a hack of SPRAY PAINTING it on 🤩if you’ve ever tried to paint an intricate cornicing you will know what an absolute 🤬it is, so that’s it spray painting the little toads from now on 🙌🏼 After that lot we’ll wallpaper last which is the pièce de résistance in this huge overhaul 💃🏼can’t waiiiiit to show you when it’s finished.
Ps fell in love with the new bedside lamp we bought in for @wildoneinteriors but I’m now keeping one😂💕.
