I am so excited to share this blog post with you guys,  about 10 Beautiful Minted Fine Art Prints for Home Decor! Now, you know that I love my little thrift store African wood work his and her praying hands that I've had above my nightstands since we moved in.  But I've been feeling the need to switch it up lately and add a little more pizazz and color in our bedroom. Fortunately, Minted had just what I was looking for in these two prints: "Last Tuesday" and "History Repeats, which I had matted and framed by minted as well.  The second...

Today I'm joining 6 other bloggers to share the loveliest looks of fall, from home decor to fashion. We're so glad you're here! We are CC and Mike, a husband and wife accidental design duo who designs, builds, flips, and remodels houses in the Midwest.  What is an "accidental design duo" you might ask? Well, two years ago we started an Instagram account to sell my print art and share some of our home projects.  Mike Miller had just built our house and I designed it, a hobby of ours since we were newlyweds, and we decided it was finally time...

One of the most asked about things in our house is our canopy bed, so I thought I would write a post for you guys on The Ultimate Guide to Affordable Canopy Beds.  You see, our canopy bed is from Restoration Hardware and I will glad source it for you here.  But, so much has changed in the four years since I designed our home and master bedroom.  When I designed our bedroom, I was dead set on having a canopy bed but alas, they were impossible to find.  I searched and searched and searched and finally found one I loved at Restoration...

We get so many questions about our backyard area so I figured it's about time that I share all our tips for how to design a beautiful pool and outdoor living area! When you walk in my front door, this is the first thing that you see —the view into the living room that then looks out onto a straight-on view of our pool.  When we designed and built this house (Mike Miller is my builder in case you didn't know that little fact), the pool was literally the first thing that we put down on paper. I knew exactly what I wanted...

Today I'm sharing with you 5 beautiful herringbone wood floor alternatives.  Why am I sharing 5 beautiful herringbone wood floor alternatives?  Well, let's just say I remember all too well when we were building our house that I so badly wanted the look of herringbone wood floors but quickly realized how pricey it was.  I had so many picture like this pinned of gorgeous herringbone floors.  So, I decided to look into the look for less and I found some gorgeous wood floor alternatives - wood grain tile! In our master bathroom, I chose a gray wood grain tile and had it laid in a herringbone...

Have you guys heard the news that West Elm Modern Baby and Kids Furniture and Home Decor is AVAILABLE NOW?!?!  Oh my goodness, I had so much fun scrolling through their amazing website and looking at all of the adorable baby furniture, gliders, changing tables and dressers, and playroom storage items available in their new line. When we got an email from West Elm saying they were going to be partnering with Pottery Barn Kids to launch a new modern baby and kids furniture and home decor line, we were ecstatic!  OK, I was ecstatic and immediately tried to convince Mike...

It's absolutely amazing what some painted white brick can do for a space which you can see in our white painted brick fireplace makeover from the Rebsamen Remodel project.  First of all, you need to see what this fireplace looked like before CC and Mike got a hold of it—not much to look at, definitely not the focal point of the room, and honest, just plain boring. BEFORE One of my main goals for this living room was to make the fireplace more of a statement, so, we tore off the woodwork, bricked all the way to the ceiling, painted the fireplace Benjamin Moore's...
