{My New Book} Simple Decorating is 50% off!

I am so excited to let you in on a little behind-the-scenes news :). I wrote a new book called Simple Decorating! The book is 50% off TODAY ONLY (about $7.50) online at Barnes & Noble (it’s a pre-sale deal, the actual release date for bookstores is April 1). One of the things I love about writing so many books (this is my 5th!) is that with each book I have the opportunity to create different products that will speak to women who might be at different places or in different seasons in their home-making journey.

Simple Decorating is an adorable softcover book with over 300 tips and color photos. Whether you’re moving in to a new place or just want to make progress in your old place, you’ll find simple tips that can spark an idea or inspire you to take a fresh look at your home’s potential.

It’s an inspiring little book to take with you on the go or to set by your bed because it’s a compact size and an easy read.

If you’re like me, you probably would love to FEEL settled and pull your home together right now. Like today. Who likes to feel unsettled? Not me! We all have those days when we just want to feel like by the end of the day we were able to make something prettier around our home.

That’s why I wrote Simple Decorating. I wanted to offer bite-sized decorating ideas that are budget-friendly, easy to implement and won’t overwhelm those of us who don’t have it all together yet.

This book would make a great gift, too.


You’ll find Simple Decorating through your favorite booksellers and 50% off today only online (for about $7.50) at Barnes & Noble! If you are able to help me with some promotion, that would be wonderful! Feel free to share these images on your social media with the hashtag #simpledecoratingbook and let your friends and family know about the book. <3

I’m so grateful to all of you for the support you’ve offered as I’ve written and released each of my books over the past couple of years! Thank you!

Kitchen Remodel Sources

Hello there! I was so thrilled by all the enthusiasm for our new kitchen…wow! We really poured our hearts into each and every detail, so I am really happy you guys thought it was worth the wait :). If you missed the reveal, you can find it here.

It has SO been fun reading all the comments on the post and seeing all the shares of the kitchen on social media, too. You guys have been so kind! Thank you.

I headed out of town for a few days right after I got the reveal post out, but I’m excited to be home now so I can get back to blogging (and to my family and kitchen).

If you had a question about the source of an item in the kitchen, I thought it would be most helpful to put together a dedicated post with most of the sources conveniently listed in one spot (you can see the sources below each graphic and in a long list at the end!). If you are planning a kitchen remodel or refresh in the future, you can even pin the graphics to your Pinterest board so you’ll be able to find it later.

I will be doing more posts to cover all of the other questions I’ve received about the kitchen (everything from the appliances to the shiplap to the cabinets to the floors to the Dutch door and the size of the kitchen and more!), so stay tuned for more detailed information about the materials we used and the design elements in future posts to come.
