It never fails. At the conclusion of every ORC season I state that the forces of the universe are clearly conspiring against me – or at the very least against me joining the ORC ever again.

It’s insane enough that I decided to join this round with a three-month baby. Read More

 Capture  ELLE DÉCOR Indoor Outdoor Mat

The first thing I wanted for my spring porch is a patterned mat. It will go well with colors and even in the winter where all I have are evergreens. I’ve looked everywhere for one I thought would give my porch and entrance the look I’m going for. I like to start from the bottom and work my way up so I’ve been waiting on finding a rug or mat before shifting to anything else. The reason I wanted a patterned mat is because my porch is fairly small. I think patterns would make it look larger than it is and in return, I’d need less (less is more) flowers and other outdoor decor to give my entrance the look I like. This is my first spring here and I’m ready to make a bold statement with my entrance. After looking everywhere, I selected a beautiful patterned indoor-outdoor mat from ELLE DÉCOR at Home Dynamix.

 1 Change Your Rug Change Your Room

Our living room was a complete eye sore from the second we stepped into the space with our realtor.  It was a sad, dark, lonely space.  A room without flooring, dark brown painted trim and a red couch pushed off to the corner to give off a “this is a livable room” vibe.  Except, it was everything but livable. Read More

 3 Add a Rug for an Easy Room Update

Over the summer we updated all of the flooring downstairs.  We went from half carpet and half cheap laminate (installed by the previous owner), to beautiful wood tile.

Our house is a disaster zone right now. I know that’s something people often say when they have too many unwashed dishes or dirty laundry or whatever, but I really mean it. We’re continuing with our renovations now that I’m no longer perpetually nauseous from all the pregnancy hormones. Baby number four is due to arrive anywhere between three and six weeks from now. We’re told he’ll probably show up early due to some of the complications we’ve been dealing with this time around, so we’re scrambling to get ALL of the things done. Read More.

 Capture Dining Room Rug

Our little dining room has long been the neglected area in our home. In fact, we didn’t even have curtains in there until this year (and we’ve been here for four years!). We’ve been so focused on the rest of the house, getting kid’s bedrooms organized, creating a relaxing master, that we’ve forgotten all about the dining room. But the dining room is finally having her glory day in the hot sun (comment Nacho if you get the reference) here at Casa de Sosa and she’s been given her crowning jewel: a rug. Read More.

Way back in August I had the pleasure of welcoming Better Homes and Gardens (you can read all about that, here.) into my home for a photo shoot.

 18  Area Rug Brings Light to Small, Dark Space

I love my cottage home by the lake. It is a happy space for me to create, cook, and collect. There is only one thing I would change. The great room is a very dark space with only French doors to a covered lanai for natural light. I have chosen light couches to give the room a boost of light, but it didn’t work very well. You can see in the before photo below, the navy oriental rug did not help the problem. Read More.
