She's a Brick House : Lindsey Crafter's Biggest DIY Project Ever!

It's finally happened. Last month I FINALLY got my hands on an amazing property--complete with a charming 40's era house, separate studio/shop with a fireplace and wood floors, and several acres for gardens and goats. I've been experiencing idea-overwhelm over the past few months while waiting to move forward, but I can't wait to walk you through this house week by week and not only share my progress--but its unique history in my hometown.


Live and Let Live : 15+ faux plants that fooled me.

For years I turned up my nose at plastic plants. Dust? Shiny leaves? YUCK. Luckily, the standard ficus + basket combo of office lobby nightmares are rarely in production and I'm seeing more and more convincing cacti and fiddle leaf figs. Here's a list of my favorite finds (may include affiliate links) that you can add to your home whether you're lacking in decent southern exposure or a green thumb.

Interior Color Trends : How to Incorporate Lilac Into Your Home.

Years ago I lived in a three family home in a 2nd floor apartment. It was in a word "dated" with a faux sky light and orange wood floors, but it had some redeeming qualities like gorgeous wood pocket doors and a FANTASTIC lilac tub. Little did I know, but lilac would quickly replace blush and millennial pink on the home trends board. What's been most interesting is after working with this shade in a few spaces I'm recognizing it as an extremely versatile color that can create a lot of different moods - from quaint country cottage to modern glam. Check out these inspirational spaces below and give purple a second chance!
