Triple Feature in Kitchen + Bath Makeovers Magazine

August 14, 2014


It seems like a lifetime ago, but early last year (in 2013) a crew from Better Homes & Gardens came to my home to photograph a bunch of spaces.  It was an incredible, eye-opening experience and one I will never forget. Truly a dream come true that I never even knew I had... Long before one of my client's kitchens were photographed for this past Spring's KBMO cover and even longer before my kids & I were photographed at our Central Command Center, our kitchen and master bath (plus the family room) were photographed and are finally being featured in the fall/winter issue of kitchen + … [Read more...]

A Dream Oasis…

August 3, 2014


I love my home.  Every nook-and-crannie has either been renovated, painted, or touched in some way to make it ours. BUT, I still dream.  I dream of creating an oasis where I can completely step away from it all, relax 100%, and all be mine - just for a moment.  Even though I love color, I dream of this oasis to be serene, quiet, and totally zen.  Soft pinks, hues of white, all surrounded by fluffy pillows and fun textures. Like living on a cloud... So what triggered this post on creating my dream oasis?  Dyson recently reached out to me about creating a magical dream space and even though I … [Read more...]

How-to Prep + Season a New Chalkboard Wall

August 1, 2014


It's August - WOW!  Where has the Summer gone?!  Obviously for me with a newborn (+ 2 older kids), it's been a busy few weeks, but I just can't believe the days are passing by so quickly.  For some of you back to school is only a few short days away.  For us, school doesn't start till after Labor Day so we get to enjoy few more weeks of late mornings, lazy days, and soaking up the sun! Since I have 3 kids now, lately I've been trying to be overly organized and prepared.  Thinking + prepping ahead of time is my M.O.  With back to school around the corner, Lowe's put the Creative Team to the … [Read more...]

Welcome Carmel… ******************* Hello!  I'm Carmel from Our Fifth House, and I'm honored to be participating in Jenna's Creating a Meaningful Home series.  I believe that a home is about so much more than a place.  In fact the tag line in my blog header reads "where home isn't a place, it's a state of being."  As someone who has moved around a bit I've come to learn that no matter where I live I'll always be home if my heart is filled with joy and contentment. I'm a big believer … [Read more...]
