Interior Designer Insider Advice: How to Get A Luxury Home Look

I take a lot of pride in selecting a lot of the finishes and making custom changes to our home. After all, it’s our space and I wanted it to feel ours. However, I could not have gone through this process without our incredible interior designer, Toni of House Sprucing. Before Johnny and I signed the contract for our house, we started compiling a list of interior designers who could help us bring our modern, traditional and contemporary vision to life. It did not take long for House Sprucing to be our final choice. I’m so excited to team up with her in today’s post to share some interior designer insider advice on how to get a luxury home look, sometimes without that luxury price tag!

How to Plan, Research and Buy Furniture for A New Home

We are in the home stretch as far as the progress of our new build. In a few weeks, we will close on our first house and move in! This time last year we were looking at homes and going to open houses! If you missed it, we uploaded an empty house tour on our YouTube channel! Many of you have asked how Johnny and I are planning on buying furniture, especially since we cannot go into stores. I will say, we did get lucky with our sofa and got to see it in person before the quarantine started. However, a lot of other items we purchased online, based on reviews. In this post, I’m excited to share how to plan, research and buy furniture for a new home. Whether you’ll be able to go into stores or not, I hope this helps you plan out your space.

3 Hairstyles For When You Don’t Wash Your Hair

This post is in partnership with Pantene. All opinions are my own.

Hi Y’all! I’m so excited about today’s post. Many of you ask me how I get my hair to look so healthy and shiny. My secret? Don’t wash it. I’m very serious. I only wash my hair maybe once a week. To be honest, I can actually push it to 10 days, if I need to! Pantene has a full line-up of waterless shampoos and conditioners to help you extend the days between washing your hair in the shower. I’m going to share three hairstyles for when you don’t wash your hair that’ll help you hide oily roots but still look and feel great.
