When Peter and I were first married and living in our new home, I remember wanting to go all out in Christmas decorating. We started with virtually nothing except his little bachelor Christmas tree (which is now in our son Alex’s room). Every Christmas season we bought more ornaments and decorations.
When Alex was born it got even more exciting. We bought him a few very special ornaments every year for his little Christmas tree. We stopped when he was around 10 years old, as his tree was quite full by this point. Here’s a shot of it today: Read more
I’ve been waiting a long time to update my 11 year old boy’s bedroom. It feels like yesterday that I was updating it from his baby room to a “big boy” room. Where did the time go?

I’m writing this post from my brand new, beautiful master bedroom! That’s right folks, the 2017 Fall ORC reveal is finally here. I can finally show you the results of our minimal, modern, bedroom transformation. If you haven’t been following along with the other designers (featured and guest), now’s the time to check out all the final reveal goodness. I personally cannot wait to brew some tea and settle into a night of pure design voyeurism. Anyway, back to my reveal.
There were two main challenges with my master bedroom. First, at 10.5′ x 13.5′ it’s relatively small, and second, it’s located in the darkest part of the house. Here are some BEFORE pics:
