Do It Yourself

A Simple Decor Tip – Choose to go Bold

Upon embarking on this house journey, I started with googling everything regarding eclectic house decor. As I’ve gotten older and started to grow into the woman I am today, the realization that I have a wide variety of taste has fully set in. With this realization, I am lucky that I have a loving partner in my life who is willing to be on board with all of my crazy antics.

When we did our first walk through of our new home, I proclaimed loudly that I NEEDED a red door. Not a muted red, but a bright and vibrant shade that when anybody drove up to our house they would know we had planted our roots.

Hesitant, David slowly appeased my wild notion of having a red door. In fact, when I started second guessing my decision he quickly reminded me that red was it. After the mini pep talk, I realized that going bold was the answer. We began our search for the right hue to be our welcoming beacon to all seeking shelter in our humble abode. The inviting hue needed to shout from the mountain tops that you have arrived to a home of good vibrations and positivity.

It didn’t take much to discover the color that would win us over, California Poppy.


We nailed it. California Poppy is a perfect extension of our very existence and where life has taken us thus far. From our extravagant years of being newlyweds in Oceanside to a humbled married couple navigating the aspects of what life has in store for them. It’s the perfect color that embodies where we have come from and where we seek to go, the light.

“Eclectic yet classic with a playful bohemian twist is how I’d describe my style.” –Alice Temperley

A better quote couldn’t be describe the vibe that I am feeling after this project.

    I LOVE THE RED DOOR!!!!!!! I think it’s amazing and perfect!!! I don’t know if you’re familiar with One Tree Hill at all, but I’m obsessed with it and my favorite character, Brooke, (played by the amazing and flawless Sophia Bush) lived in a house with a red door for the first couple seasons and then she was supposed to move away and she was talking to another character about how she didn’t want to leave and then she said “I always liked being the girl behind the red door.” 🙂
