Here’s the expanded view of the little vignette I added to the entry. I love how the modern ceramic houses look against the vintage forest painting.
I’m currently home ALONE (solo so much this week!) prepping for a holiday party with the other NorCal @creativemorning chapters. Then off to join my family at Disneyland for a few days. Excited to surprise Cecily and see the kingdom at its most magical. ❤️🐭
Can't. stop. decorating. ‼️✳️❣️❇️
Hi friends! Welp, we finally got the pumpkins off the porch and we're breaking out the winter holiday magic. I was gifted this incredible handmade wreath from @rightsidehand and I'm in love! The dried orange slices are a little nod to my Orange County roots and I put it on our back door so we see it every time we come home. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
She makes one-of-kind and original wreaths, as well as garland and table centerpieces. These aren't your flat grocery store wreaths with a sad red bow stapled on, she uses fresh, natural materials. The cedar, pine and fir items (like mine) will last 4-6 weeks. She also has eucalyptus, myrtle, olive varieties are treated to last up to two years!
You can pick up yours @westelmroseville, DM @rightsidehand for custom orders and visit her link in profile for market dates. 🎄 at Sacramento, California
Its been 6 months since we overhauled our patio and yard and we use it every day, even now when its cold and rainy. And no, its not because of the covered patio. Hint: 💡
On the blog I'm going into more detail on the process behind the lighting design with @lumensdotcom and some of the biggest surprises that came of it. 👉🏼Link in profile!
Give me all the texture. 🍫❤️🍫 at Nevada City, California
I checked into this tiny cottage for a couple nights to tackle some business tasks and do some reflecting on the year. It’s so cozy and quiet I may just skip December in the real world if that’s ok. 👋🏽🌲 at Nevada City, California
We put up 2 trees in our house so I can have a pretty tree with a tight color palette, vintage ornaments and white lights and my family can have the rainbow cluttered circus tree of their dreams. This year I’m going for pinks, greens and gold sparkly. I’ve been listening to Dolly Parton’s America podcast (have you listened?!) so its heavily inspired by her. ✨👸🏼🎄
Time to get these halls decked. 🎄 #desandcec at Green Acres Nursery & Supply Roseville
Happy Black Friday! We had such a great day with friends and family, I wish I could just hang out and do nothing but there's work to be done... ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The other day @postandbeamliving was remembering her stone fireplace renovation and made me realize I’ve never really properly photographed this corner of our home. I love the asymmetry of our fireplace but dislike the bull-nosed tile hearth added at some point. Now that I’ve landed on a furniture layout I’m happy with in this room my dad and I are talking about tackling it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I’ve debated painting the stone, retiling the whole thing or just reworking the hearth/bench. I also can’t decide if I should try to add a mantel? It’s all so band-aid blah and blends with the floor but adding some contrast with the hearth may be all it needs. What say you?
It’s become a holiday tradition (with myself) to set the table with things I have on-hand and foraged in the yard. It helps that we basically live in a prop closet. 🤷🏽♀️🦃 #desmondthedood #plumbmidmod
Thankful for all the significants that will be gathering in here today. And thank you to all my clients and friends that have supported this little business this year. I wouldn't be showing up here everyday if it wasn't for you. 🍁

I’m so thankful for our home this year. Of course I’ve always seen the potential but we’ve turned the corner to it feeling *mostly* up-to-date vs mostly needing help. Our amazing realtor/friend @regina_szura came for a visit and it was so fun remembering with her where we started 3 years ago.
It’s a real redemption story that inspires me to keep going. I’m so grateful for how far we’ve come and excited about where life can take us in a short period of time. 📷 @nicolediannephoto
When we bought our house 3 years ago we were the second owners and I could strongly feel the imprint of the family who lived here for 50ish years. Stories from long-time neighbors and the obvious care that went into the property made it clear that this home was meaningful to them. Before we moved in, Cecily, who was a little over 2, and I were standing in the empty front room room, and said “I see a lady.” She was staring at a blank wall. 😳 I asked if the lady seemed nice, she nodded yes and went on with her toddler day. I’ve only felt welcoming energy here but do think about them during our projects. I’m actually comforted by the idea that those that have come before us become part of the soul of a place and guide us in subtle ways. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Have you lived somewhere with benevolent (or otherwise) spirits? I love the story that inspired @PhantomWines. Over the years, frequent and unexplainable sightings of a mysterious apparition have increased in the Clarksburg winery and vineyards.
Perfect for your holiday table Phantom Red Blend’s ripe berry and relentless spice returns to haunt wine lovers. I gravitate toward white wine and Phantom Chardonnay’s aromas of honey and sweet vanilla with juicy golden apples and ripe pears are up my alley this time of year. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Bonus: you can entertain your family and experience the story of the Phantom for yourself! Download the Augmented Reality app (link in profile) to see the Phantom come to life. It’s pretty cool! 🍇🍷✨

I love this room and paint color (Kelly Moore Park Avenue) but no room is safe in our house right now as I try to look at everything with fresh eyes. 👀
Every time my baby brother and his gf visit Sacramento I lean in harder on my "move up here" pitch. Today on the way to the airport I drove them through all of the neighborhood gems in our city and this time printed out maps so they could follow along and take notes. #virgo #bigsister 😂
But seriously, we may be a capital city without cool "major" attractions but its the kind of place that covers all the bases to just live a good life. Bonus points, the cool kids are getting priced out of bigger markets and opening awesome businesses here. I.e. we always have to make a stop into @publiclandstore when they're here. Pack your bags @jimmyunderscore and @cheddar_, we're ready for you!
We’ve got lots of family in town this weekend celebrating my folks and having this functioning guest bath is a game changer! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
One of the more subtle upgrades is bringing intention to the hallways. I’ve ignored them in our home up until now because we’ve had bigger fish (rooms) to fry. But now this little mini gallery and lighting from @lumensdotcom is such a warm welcome and sets the tone for the rest of the house. It’s a little bit personal, a little bit vintage and a little bit modern—that’s my style recipe and I’m sticking to it. #plumbmidmod .
