Welcome

Hi, I’m Kim

I am here to let you know that it’s totally possible to have a beautifully decorated, comfortable, purposeful home that serves your family while tackling DIY projects, while not being overrun with all the stuff.

We used to live in a 2 bedroom 880sqft house, which is a minimalist’s dream… except 10 years ago, I wasn’t aspiring to be one. I soon found myself with an infant, and oodles of decor and baby stuff in the basement, collecting dust.

Summer Fun Facts About Me

my family & coffee

Favorite place

all the beaches

fall weekends

toes in the sand or poolside

best snuggle buddies

my kids
calming chaos in 20 minutes

Where this all began

24 area rugs, 3 kids, and 4 kitchen islands later, I have finally gotten a handle on quality pieces, repurposing items to bring function, design, and organization to spaces, learned how to DIY basically everything to update and renovate 2 houses, and how to find my design style. 

I am excited to share what I have learned along the way, to encourage you to create a beautifully decorated, functional, welcoming, minimialist-ish home for your whole family!

This is the story of how we turned excess area rugs, lamps, salvage doors, antique windows, picture frames, sample paint cans, drop cloths, and power tools, into a minimalist-ish home we love. I hope our story encourages and inspires you to DIY and simplify your house, into a home that serves your family well.
