Modern Met Chic Etsy Shop

Hi friends! Remember that surprise I was telling you about in my last post! Well, it’s reveal time!!

This dream of mine has been in the works for a while, and I’m so excited to share it with you! I’ve opened an Etsy shop, and will be selling one of a kind crocheted items.

It all started about a year ago when I taught myself how to crochet. I mostly did it for fun, but man, is it fun! I ended up with a real passion for it, and have been toying around with the idea to sell my creations for a while now.

Then, about a month ago, I finally decided to go for it. And now here we are.

I would like to introduce you to:


My new shop.

You can find the shop here.

Go check it out! And as a reader, I’d like to offer a little gift to you. For the first month, I will offer 10% off any order above $5 to all my readers (offer expires on 4/4/2016). Simply put down “BLOGFOLLOWER” into the coupon slot when you check out on an item, and it will automatically be applied to your order.

Hope you like my shop! And be sure to let me know what you think!


A New Adventure

I don’t have any interior pictures to share with you in this post (I hope to do one later today of our half bath). But I do have an excited venture I’m starting. At least, I’m excited about it. I’ve always wanted to pursue interior design more fully, beyond my own four walls, and now I’m finally doing it.

I signed up for an online course through TrendiMi for an Interior Design certificate, and hope to complete it soon. I’m super excited!

I have no idea where this will lead, but I’m hoping that eventually I might be able to help other people realize their hopes and dreams of creating a space they can truly call home, that has their own signature touch; a place that is unique to them, one of a kind.

I’ll let you know how it goes. Thanks for being a part of this adventure.

An Introduction

Hi there!

You’ve found it. The place where I share with you the home of my dreams. Where I share my guilty pleasure: interior design. Such beautiful words.

I call it the Miracle House. That’s because there were so many miracles that happened in order for us to move in. And also because it is such a PERFECT house. For us at least.

We loved it at first sight. In fact, we kind of loved it before we even saw it. We didn’t even spend half an hour in it before we asked our agent to write up the offer. It’s such a perfect fit for us because it has classic bones, with enough modern in it to satisfy Joseph. That would be my husband.

In so many ways we are exactly alike. But when it comes to our design personalities, oh boy, do we differ. I’m the cottage chic girl, who loves vintage ruffles and floral patterns. Oh, and white distressed furniture. He’s the Dwell type of guy, who likes clean (read: empty) countertops and unadorned surfaces. Thankfully, he’s enough of a classic guy though, that we’ve learned how to meet in the middle.

And that’s my project: to find the place where Modern met Chic. Because a house doesn’t become a home unless both of you feel it.

So this blog is about that. Turning this place of possibility into the place of perfection (well, as close as I can), so that both of us can enjoy it.

What can you expect from Where Modern met Chic? As I engage in new “projects” around the house, or rearrange the furniture for the umpteenth time, or find some new treasure at the thrift store, I’ll be on to share with you.


So welcome along for the ride. Hope it’s as much fun for you as it is for me.
