hey there, I’M alicia!

I’m so happy you’re here.

Pretty much every day, I try to design a beautiful life and space that works for me so I can be my best self for the ones I love. I started this creative outlet so I can share what I’ve learned along the way, and even the things I’m still figuring out, about designing my life and home. My hope is that I can inspire YOU in the design of YOURS. And luckily, my hilarious and talented hubby and adorable (if I do say so myself) boys are along for the ride.

Besides having Eli and starting this website, we finished many, many renovations, projects, and upgrades. A former owner of the house walked by one day and said she hardly recognized it from the outside. And I can confidently say this house looks nothing like it did when we purchased it.

I wrote a round up post and made a Google Web Story detailing my top 6 favorite projects with before and after photos!
