Coffee Shop Design


I’m so excited to share all of the design details within the Coffee Waves Flour Bluff expansion. Design (well, anything creative really) is something I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE. So getting to design this coffee shop was a ton of fun for me!

Originally, when we first opened we had only about 1500 sq. ft. of total space. This meant seating was super limited. With the expansion, we doubled in size! My main goal was to create various options for seating. From the large group to the one person coming in to work on their laptop, there are plenty of options to choose from!

Some of my favorite additions to the shop are:  The conference room (Which was totally my husband’s idea! ) is available for booking meetings, the stage which is great for comedy night or live music, and last but not least…THE PLANTS!!

The conference room has light grey textured walls, a large wooden meeting table, and couches. A printer and television are also available for customers booking the meeting space. We are pretty excited about this neat space as we know meeting spaces are limited and needed within the city.

The long cushioned booth along the wall is ideal for maximizing seating. The walls are black with a heavy texture. At one point during remodel, all I could see was black, which made the space super dark. It was a tad frightening!

But, I still had faith it would all come together, and gosh, I’m SO glad it did! A few main things brought in more warm and diversity. Mainly, PLANTS, PLANTS, and more PLANTS! Really, how can you go wrong with greenery?! By adding shelving above the entrance as well as above the bench seating, we were able to display various plants that only require minimum sunlight. The white subway tile also helped break up the black!

We love to support local businesses and talent! All tables and chairs were built by Mr. Lancaster, a super talented craftsmen @ H Lancaster Co. 


Some of the other details that give the shop some flare are the unique light fixtures, textured walls, open shelving, chalkboard wall art, fun bathroom wallpaper, and various local artwork displayed.

If you are ever in the Corpus Christi area or if you are a local, but haven’t came to visit, please do. We would love to meet you!

Brother & Sister Shared Bedroom


I had just finished my son’s big boy room and loved it, but in the end he only cared to be in his sister’s room. I realized over time that his room was basically only being used to sleep in.  I was hesitant to have them share a room because I still wanted them to have their own individual spaces that felt “boyish” for him and “girly” for her, but in the end I love how it turned out. Most importantly, they love sharing a room! 

I decided to go as simple and neutral as possible for this shared space. Most of their toys are now in their playhouse or play room down stairs. Cozy, warm and inviting was the feel I was going for. Their room is mainly for reading, snuggles and sleepy time.

My parents are super talented. My dad built the house bed frames and the book ledges for me and my mom refurbished the dresser they’re sharing. I found this dresser years ago at a antique shop. Their dresser is in their closet to free up wall space.

The book ledges are so ideal for the kids, especially at their current ages (2.5 and 4). They can reach and see each book easily.

Between their beds I wanted something that identified their beds without necessarily saying their names. I decided to create silhouettes for each of them. To create these I followed this simple tutorial I found on Pinterest.

The two hanging posters were created on a word document in basic, “Times New Roman” font and printed locally. Poster hangers were purchased on Amazon. Each of my children have a “life scripture” I was given while pregnant with each of them. For more on the meaning or reason behind the scripture, see my previous post, “Whats in a name?”.

Zion’s Big Boy Bedroom


Slowly, but surely I am transitioning my son, Zion’s room from a nursery to a big boy room. I love the clean and simple look of his room! He does have a closet, where I store his shoes, dresser and other clothing hanging up such as jackets. For some reason with my daughter’s room it was super easy to decorate. But, with my son’s room I have had to think outside of the box and get a little more creative. I love how the shelving and hanging of his super cute clothing give so much character to this large blank wall.

The next step is to add some fun toys and A BIG BOY BED! This momma is just not ready to move on from the crib yet, but it will eventually happen. Please let me know what you think and if you have any questions! All sources are listed at the bottom.
