Hey there, and welcome back! If you are a fan of "Before and Afters", then you are in for a treat. Do you follow me on Instagram? If so, you may remember me sharing this bedroom design board a few weeks back:
My client, Kassi, is a busy single mom who custom built her dream home and although her house is already gorgeous, she needed a little help giving her master suite the "wow" factor it was looking for. Kassi was a dream to work with from the get-go. She tends to lean more towards modern design, but isn't afraid of a pop of color while still keeping it warm and cozy with natural wood tones. I knew right away that this was going to be a fun project. See below for some of the "BEFORE" photos:
When Kassi and I met for our initial consultation, she mentioned that she was open to a fun wallpaper (yay!) and that a seating area was a must-have. Other than that, she gave me free range to design her new space. These are the initial design boards that I presented her with:
Kassi being the rockstar that she is, made little to no revisions on the design boards and we were rocking and rolling within a few weeks! See below for the AFTER photos!
Before vs. After:
What do you guys think? Quite the transformation, eh? Thoughts on the design board vs. end result? Kassi's bedroom is right off the front entrance of her home, so she wanted to be sure it made a statement when guests walked in, and I think we accomplished that! The fun geometric wallpaper mixed with brass accents make me fall more in love with this space every time I look at it. Leave a comment below and let me know what you think. And as always, thanks for stopping by!

Hey you, happy Monday! I don't know about you, but since becoming a stay at home mom a little over 2 years ago, I have practically been living in the "mom uniform". You know, the slobber stained yoga pants, baggy tee shirt and messy bun? Yup, that's me.
But lately I have been trying to take a few extra minutes in the morning for some self care- and trust me, it's long overdue! I have found that if I put on a bit of mascara, spray in some dry shampoo, and throw on a few timeless accessories, that I feel like a completely different person.
It seems like a no brainer, but just reminding myself to take an extra 20 minutes in the day for those few things can really make me feel better. Now let's be honest... I'm not busting out the spanx and stilettos for a target run but something as simple as throwing on a real pair of pants and a new cool watch can really change my attitude on the day. Which is why I am so excited to share my new favorite accessory with you- my Jord watch.
Why am I obsessed with Jord? It goes with anything!
Jord offers so many versatile and timeless pieces that it was hard to choose just one. I immediately fell in love with their unique wooden bands and knew it would be the perfect everyday accessory. I chose the "Frankie" series Zebrawood and Champagne watch and I couldn't be more obsessed. I love how neutral it is, and that I can pair this timeless piece with just about anything. Leggings and a baseball cap, sure. Booties and a chunky sweater? Yup! You can dress this watch up and you can dress it down, and what mom doesn't love versatility?
"Native to West Africa, zebrawood offers a striking grain contrast and exceptional finish. Although the growth rings are very pronounced, the wood occurs naturally with both large grain and fine grain patterns. Zebrawood is considered a luxury hardwood and is most commonly used in veneer application. JORD uses only whole wood stock to create our Zebrawood watches."

Great gift idea! You can personalize it!
One of my favorite things about Jord watches is that you can personalize them. That's right- Jord offers personalized engraving on their watches AND their one of a kind cedar boxes. How cool is that? Talk about a perfect gift idea! With the holidays quickly approaching, I have a feeling my next Jord will be one of the men's series for my hubby- the real watch fanatic in this house!
I am thinking something along the lines of "Our love is timeless" or "Every second I love you more". You know, something sweet that will prove that I still love him even when I'm nagging because he forgot to put the toilet seat down or put his laundry away- ha!
Unique simplistic design- Truly one of a kind!
Since receiving my Jord watch in the mail, I have gotten so many compliments on it. Everyone that sees my new timepiece can't get over how beautiful and different the design is. It's very simplistic and like nothing they have ever seen- and I love that!
