Home Office Space

While in Toronto I’ve had to figure a few things out in our temporary home to better support my family’s needs. Like adding a little girlie flare to the guest room that became my girls room once they arrived. Speaking of, once the kids descended I was forced to find and create a quite spot for myself where I could get some work done. Hence, the lovely and peaceful home office space I cobbled together. I borrowed a few pieces of furniture I found around our rented condo and purchases a couple of pretty accents from local shops. I’m pretty pleased with how the space turned out and have found it to be a perfect spot for working on the blog, writing, reading and generally getting inspired. I thought I’d share it with any of you work from home mamas out there in need of a little home office beautifying ideas. XOXO, KTContinue Reading

TV Trailer Makeover

Katherine Heigl In Her Trailer For TV Show Suits
Ever since I became an actor my home away from home has been my on set trailer. When I was a kid I started out in a honey wagon, which is a block of six or so closet sized rooms attached to one another on wheels. Once I’d earned my stripes I was upgraded to a triple banger (I realize how that sounds but I didn’t coin the phrase) which is three slightly larger rooms attached to one another on wheels. After the triple banger came the double banger. Yup, you guessed it, two even bigger rooms attached to one another on wheels. I have fond memories of my trailer neighbors, the other actors in the adjoining room, and being subject to their blaring heavy metal music (Brendan Fehr on Roswell listened exclusively to Metallica at ear splitting decibels) or their blaring afternoon television shows (Justin Chambers on Grey’s Anatomy loved him some Judge Judy.) I know you wouldn’t think it but I actually miss those shared trailer days and my co-star neighbors! I really love those guys! Anyway, these days, after almost 30 years in the business of being an actor I have upgraded to a single trailer all my own. Making my at work space feel homey, comfortable and peaceful is usually my first priority when I start a new job. Continue Reading

Holidays 2017: Christmas Decor

Christmas stockings
My mixed metals Thanksgiving table is what truly inspired my 2017 Christmas decor. I loved the look of all those glorious gleaming metals paired together in one cohesive way so I figured, why not carry the look into Christmas? I found relatively inexpensive shatterproof ornaments at Michaels that fit the theme perfectly and had a LOT of ornaments of my own I could mix in. I built myself another wreath for the front door with more finds from Michaels. Though I’m starting to run out of storage space for all these wreaths, maybe I’ll use a few for a fun giveaway and one of you who likes the look of them could use it for your next holiday inspired front door! Thoughts?Continue Reading
