Hello World!

If you're interested in reading about the adventures of a novice decorator, this is the blog for you.

I have many past design mishaps to atone for, including, painting my kitchen robin's egg with chocolate accents, buying all my furniture at once to fill the space, and, well, not really putting much thought or effort into the design at all.

So, here we are, barely past square one. Join me as I figure out what to do with my tiny 920 sq. foot South Austin home.

The picture to the right is the kitchen table we just purchased. We also purchased two of the benches pictured here, because they tuck completely under the table, making the most of the limited space in our galley-style kitchen.

Thanks for reading!


  1. Hi Mandy!! Love the blog. Cant wait to continue reading about your design updates. Will this be something you try and do beyond your own home?

  2. The first comment was created by your cousin Katie - for some reason my profile ID was overwritten with the first line of my blog. Hope all well!

  3. Yes, become an interior designer. If that is your kitchen, it looks really cute. I like it . Keep it coming. Love you that is for sure. A/b

  4. Hi Guys!
    Next time, I'll make sure I site pictures that aren't mine...this one is actually straight from the West Elm catalog. I do wish I was that good of a photographer, though!
