Never underestimate the power of a beautiful light fixture (or proper window treatments - but that’s a whole other post). Fixtures with seeded glass have always been one of my favorites. What’s yours? Modern? Crystal? Antique? All of the above? What makes you look up?
I'm gearing up for design content for 2018, but I need your help! Please click the link in my bio to take my design survey. It will only take you a few minutes . . . I promise. 🤓
The survey is anonymous, so give me a holler below to let me know you completed it. One lucky winner will receive a gift card to their favorite home decor store courtesy of yours truly!

Coffee table styling is a bit of an art. It’s important that they look good but equally important that it’s still functional! A few key pointers are to start with your largest items first like coffee table books and trays. Then add natural elements like a potted plant, flowers, or objects like the grapewood branch I used in this coffee table styling. The last step is to add in personal trinkets and decorative objects. Be sure to use different colors, shapes and textures! These final touches can be things like a bowl, small box, candle, magnifying glass, beads, coasters, and sculptural objects. My last bit of advice? Don’t rush the process - make sure you find pieces you love and show off your personality! #alisacristineinteriors#liveoakproject

I spent the weekend FINALLY learning how to snowboard🏂. It’s a comforting feeling to know that it’s possible to learn new things even when you’re middle aged. 😂 Back to work we go, some before/after photos to motivate me. Styling by @afabchallenge 📷: @colinprice

Most frequently asked questions about my kitchen, commin' in HOT! 🔥I've collected my most frequently asked Qs and answered them all right here in this single post, so please read before you comment with a question because I'm sure someone will make fun of you if you ask what color the paint is on my walls 😂🙈
Here we go, folks... 🙇🏼♀️
1️⃣Are there any before and after pictures I can see of your kitchen renovation? Yes, in my story highlights click on the circle that says "kitchen reno" then swipe up to read the entire post!
2️⃣What style would you call your kitchen?
Tricky. I feel like it has to have "farmhouse" somewhere in the description because I do use some farmhouse elements, but I would not call my home true "farmhouse". So, I'd say Rustic Modern Farmhouse. Yeah. That sounds fantastic. 😂🙈
3️⃣What color is the blue paint?
I hand-mixed it with samples that I had collected while trying to find the right color. I have no clue what samples I used, what brand, or how much. I do know that I mixed blue, white, and gray paints to achieve the color I wanted. I was being very picky. I would LOVE to be able to make it into a paint for you one day and call it Blue Smoke or something edgy sounding like that 😂 .
4️⃣What are your countertops?
5️⃣Did you add the shiplap or has it always been there?
I added the shiplap and beams during our renovation and they are my favorite part!
6️⃣How do you clean those top windows? (Seriously, people ask this 😂)
I don't clean those windows. .
7️⃣Has the brick fireplace in the kitchen always been there?
Yes! We did reface it though with a different color of brick. The original brick was a cherry 90s red.
8️⃣Did you have someone design your kitchen during the reno, if so, who was it?
You're lookin' at er' babe 😉 Mike and I redesigned the entire space and it was exciting and terrifying all at the same time. .
9️⃣Paint color on the cabinets:
@sherwinwilliams Pure White
🔟Breadbox from Hobby Lobby! And I have no more space for words! 😂❤ Gnite, friends! Shop my kitchen 👉🏼 #firstname.lastname@example.org
Our guest room might just be my favorite room in the house. It makes me smile every time I walk past the door. While I’m the number one fan of that tone of evergreen right now, I’m also just so grateful that we finally have a spot to host family and friends.

Sometimes the morning calls and I just want to hit the snooze..zz I actually used to be a morning person and not a night owl, pure conditioning really. 😂 So this morning, I put on some Bill Withers, “Lovely Day” and I’m up and at ‘em, slow but up.😉 Good morning! 🌱

Our living room feels so disheveled right now- just like the rest of the house. As eager as I am for the kitchen renovation to wrap up, I’m just as excited to put the house back how it belongs!! That would honestly be my ideal Sunday, ha. How’s your weekend looking?
