Top Posts in 2014

I can't believe 2015 is here! The past year has been a whirlwind, which I understand everyone says every single year. Today I'm taking you back down memory lane of what happened on this little space on the world wide web. Here are some of my very favorite projects, life happenings and client reveals of 2014...

1. In January I revealed my client's preppy home office design. I love this room (and client-- she was the best!) with all my heart. The Before & After was amazing!

2.  I had fun making a Valentine's Day cake topper to share on The Inspired Room.

3. I also made a heart shaped Valentine's Day wreath to share on Glitter Guide!


5. Want to know my simple makeup routine? I dished it out here.

6. One of my favorite rooms I've designed was revealed on the blog in March. I helped a sweet family put finishing touches throughout their family room and we all adored the outcome! Tour the whole room here

7. We installed plantation shutters and updated a few other things in the guest bedroom of my parents' house. What an amazing update!

8. I announced I was moving to Michigan and then I moved into my apartment and showed you the floor plan and empty room pictures here.

9. Ashley and I went into business together and founded The Bloom Workshop. We hosted three workshops in 2014 and they were all equally magical. I love inspiring creative women to go for their dreams and give them the tools to do just that. Our first workshop was in June, second one was in September, and third one was in October in Atlanta, making it our first workshop where we travelled to another state. Oh what fun!

Our Atlanta workshop's styled photo shoot that I designed was featured on Ruffled. Ashley's film photography makes me want to cry it's so darn pretty!

10. Throughout the design process of my new apartment in Michigan, I have been sharing sneak peeks! You can take a look at all of them here

11. We went on our family trip to Tahoe and enjoyed a fun day on the lake. A certain someone thought it'd be hilarious to push me into the lake ;) 

12. Hands down my favorite thing I learned to cook in 2014-- peach glazed pork chops!

13. I taught myself (and you!) a classic braided updo.

14. Peonies are everyone's favorite, so I created an at-home arrangement with the prettiest blooms!

15. I made some festive pumpkins for halloween!

16. My birthday outfit (totally simple little get up of black leggings, boots and a cheap Target coat!) is one of my favorite looks. Turns out it was one of your favorite, too, as it was the most-viewed fashion post of 2014.  See the whole look here!

17. One of my all time favorite blog series I've done has been teaming up with Lauren of Elle & Company to bring you our Home Suite Home installation. Each week you helped us choose pieces for Lauren's little home and we will be revealing the whole thing soon! Take a look back at the whole series. 

Besides all the Christmas and holiday posts, those were some of my favorites for the past year. Thank you so much for coming along on the journey with me. I love each and every reader who finds themselves on my blog. Thank you for reading, inspiring me, and giving me motivation to do what I love!

Happy January!!! Here's to a beautiful 2015!
