Negative space. When I’m painting I know that the subject I’m focusing on is just as important as the background behind it. It’s the space filled with nothing that directs your attention towards the main idea. I have totally neglected this art principle. Not as it relates to my paintings, but for my home.
It’s clear to me that as I’ve been taking care of our home I haven’t been giving enough attention to negative space. We have clutter and too many items to manage at our home. The garage was packed.
I decided that November was the month to empty our garage and only put a small amount of stuff back in. I’m in the middle of this big project, but I feel so good already! The space with nothing is already so exciting and helping me see the things I love in our space so much more.
This ladder is in my art studio. I love that the wall behind it doesn’t compete. I love you, negative space!
That @mcgeeandco wreath somehow fell off our front door yesterday and found it’s way to our hood and I’m not mad about it! One of the compromises I made with my spouse during this renovation was about the hood - he wanted that slight angle and I wanted a flat panel. In the end, (since he basically asked for nothing else 😘) we agreed on the angle. And ya know what? Sometimes significant others are right - angled hood for the win! #millerremodel
Hey stranger! I’ve been out of office for a couple weeks on a much needed vacation to Santa Barbara. I found so much inspiration in all the Spanish-style architecture and decor & now I can’t wait to get my hands on a project where I can incorporate some of these gorgeous details 😍 Hope you all have been well!

Still can’t believe we get to come home to our new and improved kitchen! We were away over the weekend and I walked into the kitchen expecting our old kitchen! I was pleasantly surprised. 😆 have you ever experienced that after redoing a room? #oneroomchallenge#bhgorc

Detail of the wormwood live edge shelf! When choosing new materials to use in your home, consider what other features have similar patterns. The floors in this home also has worn lines and so this shelf is a perfect addition!

Without question, Aubrey’s favourite part of her new room is having a desk of her own. She’s spent SO much time here in the past couple days. She’s used up every piece of stationary in the kit I hid in the drawers for her and she’s changed every piece of art on the ledge (and customized the letter board). It’s safe to say this is a win ✌🏻 Now to figure out where to put my computer. It’s been sitting on the floor unplugged since we moved the desk here. I have a video finished and waiting for YouTube if I can find somewhere safe to plug it in 😂 desktop problems 🤷♀️ #oneroomchallenge#bhgorc@betterhomesandgardens@oneroomchallenge@homelovenetwork
