I'm Julie, a feisty, but rather shy redhead from New York, who moved to the Midwest to follow my dreams (and the love of my life). I'm passionate about decorating our home with my own unique affordable DIY style which is a mix of eclectic, contemporary, traditional, with a splash of country. I don't follow the crowd, but trust my gut instead. I hope to inspire you to try some of my ideas. I also love to cook and share my easy recipes. My family begs me to make my homemade meatballs and pizza. I hope you will try them and hang out with me for a while or subscribe to my e-mail letter here:

We Painted our Cape Cod Style Home Periwinkle!

Welcome to our Cape Cod style home during Spring in the Midwest!  It’s still pretty cold here, but the sun is out today!  I thought it would be a great time to inspire you all with some paint!  We took a risk with periwinkle (at least it looks like periwinkle in person) a couple years ago, but we love it against the crisp white and chocolate brown! Some of these were taken today and you will notice lots of yard work that needs attention…if it would just stop being so windy and cold!!Rick and I have worked very hard over the last 3 1/2 years getting this house back in shape.  We still have lots to do, but we sure are proud of the improvements thus far and I love sharing it with you all not to boast, but to inspire.  XO
