What’s more festive than a wreath in the fall or during the holiday season? While I do love a good door wreath, sometimes they are a bit too traditional for me, so I wanted to make a modern looking hoop wreath for the fall season

Hey all, Julie here and I’m back already! We told ya, it wouldn’t be too long till you heard from me again

Posted by admin on

I am so ready to share with you my “teeny tiny rental bathroom refresh” reveal. It’s been almost 3 months to the day since four of us on the EHD team – Jess, Ryann, Caitlin & myself – shared our rental bathroom woes with you and the design dreams we had for them. I technically completed the 2-month challenge that Jess set out for us since Sara shot my bathroom at the end of August and am so excited to share it today. I love (read: need) a deadline to get those items that are lower on my priority life...
