You guys. At this point in our relationship you must know I am thee worst “blogger”. It’s funny actually when people call me a blogger. I am not a blogger. A blogger posts a couple times a week, if not daily. I, however, like to wait years to post about an event I did. You know, to keep the suspense. Did it work? Anyways, I am not a blogger. I am a visual artist, and a product stylist who has a website that has a blog section that SOMETIMES I’ll update so you can see more of my work. So, here you have it- a fun installation and design for The Cream Event with some lovely company. Check it out if you want.
How pretty are these florals by Catalina Neal? The best at The Cream that year.
Hat’s off to Twinkle and Toast for this gorgeous sitting chart all on top pieces of fabric!

I am so excited to announce that my husband and I not only are in the process of renovating our “new to us” home, but we thought it would be fun to include YOU in the process with a YouTube series! We start at the beginning when we first get our keys, to our vision, demo, frustrations, changed plans, and ultimately the final design! For those of you that follow me already on Instagram, you know we are busy people. We have a 4 year old Sophia, and a 4 month old Sullivan and life doesn’t stop just cause you are renovating! We include it all! So hey, if you think this is something you might like, gain inspiration from, or just point and laugh at what we have gotten ourselves into, then SUBSCRIBE to our YouTube channel “The Andra Dwelling” where we will be posting weekly episodes! Maybe it’ll have you saying “Fixer Upper who?”

I thought I’d do a little TBT of Sophia’s nursery since she turned 1 two weeks ago I’m feeling a little reminiscent. It was featured on Grey likes Baby even before The Shift Creative was born, (or Soph was for that matter) and captured gorgeously by Kayla Adams. I remember how hard it was for me to choose all the pieces in her room because I wanted it to be perfect, and to be completely done before she was here. Mint and peach were trendy then and still are now, but I don’t tire of it yet. I love how fresh her room feels with the grey and white accents and all the fun, quirky details that I found on early mornings to yard sales and flea markets. I will say that now her diapers aren’t so perfectly in place, the rug is a little dirtier, and clothes litter the room, but nonetheless its hers. She will grow up in there and make memories in there, even if the paint colors change, the bed transitions, and the prints are replaced by posters- it will always be the room I made for her to call her own!
Take a peek!
P.S- I included some maternity shots too, the reminiscing continues…

I love this room for many reasons, but I guess I’ll just name two. First, because the couple I designed it for are super awesome and let me take over their space, yet still staying true to their vision. Second, because the wife is the one who really encouraged me to start a blog to begin with, so hats go off to her!
Talk about a transformation! For under $1500 I redesigned this whole room from drab storage room, to industrial office and cozy guest room! My friends wanted an environment for a study, while staying warm for a guest room. The white bedding and sheet set from West Elm really brighten up the room, and look great paired with the Moroccan rug from Rugs USA, giving the room that homey vibe they wanted!
This bookshelf from The House of Industry was a steal & is def a focal point of the room!
Let’s talk about this desk! My talented husband custom built it for this room, and I’d say it was the perfect touch! Thick slices of wood, industrial piping, leather accents, and a west elm table lamp on top all create a perfect work space!
Don’t let your budget discourage you from making your space look awesome! It is amazing what you can do with a small space, and an even smaller budget!! … Read More
