Before & After: Our Upstairs Landing Turned Reading Nook

Before and after makeover reveal: Awkward upstairs landing transformed into cozy reading nook and home library. I teamed up with @bhglivebetter exclusively @walmart to revamp this awkward loft area at the top of our stairs — don’t you think it makes the perfect reading nook?? One of my 2021 goals is to reduce my screen time, so creating a library of sorts is the perfect way to dive into that love even more.

I’m so excited to share my first makeover of 2021 with you today! I have a huge reveal coming for the rest of our main, open living space, but I am way too impatient to hold off on sharing at least SOME of the cabin’s new look. In an afternoon, I was able to revamp this awkward loft area at the top of our stairs — while also creating a reading nook to help bring one of my 2021 goals to life. I’m a big reader, so creating a library of sorts is the perfect way to dive into that love even more! Plus, almost everything came from the  Better Homes & Gardens collection exclusively at Walmart, so it was an affordable makeover to pull off.

How to Prepare Your Home for the New Year

The holidays are almost upon us, but have you given thought to how to prepare your home for the new year? These 4 tips are easy & make a difference!

I know everything is all about the holidays right now, but honestly… I’m a bit holiday-ed out. I love the twinkle and the decor, but when it comes to talking about it, I’m burnt out. Sorry if that makes me sound like a grinch! It’s been a doozy of a year, to put it mildly, and all I want is to step into 2021 and hope for better. For me, my sense of happiness and grounding comes from my home being more settled. Even though we just moved, I’m already thinking of ways to prepare our home for the new year and wanted to share those thoughts with you, as well. I hope this post inspires you!

Our Christmas Eve Traditions, New & Old

What’s your Christmas eve tradition? I shared mine on the blog today in partnership with @bhglivebetter exclusively @walmart to share two thoughtful gift ideas for the men in my life (my husband and my father-in-law!) plus a peek at my holiday tablescape including charming 12 days of Christmas plates! #BHGlivebetter #walmart #betterhomesandgardens #AD

Part of why I love the holidays is because of the nostalgia plays a big part of the season. I have so many fond memories from growing up and they are all tied up in the whimsy of the season. When Better Homes & Gardens at Walmart asked me to share my favorite holiday memory, I immediately knew what I wanted to share… as well as two really great gift ideas that just might inspire your own holiday gift giving this year! Keep reading, but promise you won’t tell Sean what I’m surprising him with ;)

My Design Plan for Our New Dining Room

My design plan for our dining room in the new cabin + tips on how I begin a new design project on jojotastic.com

It’s probably weird to start making over our new cabin with the dining room, but IMO it’s the easiest place to improve right away. I love that we finally can have a larger dining table (just wait til you see the one I picked from AllModern), even though we aren’t doing any entertaining these days. Plus, it’s the core of our home so getting it settled is a great help in finalizing the overall home. After many, many hours on Pinterest, here are the pieces I’m gathering to complete my design plan for our new dining room!

My Cabin Chic Winter Wonderland

Tour my cabin chic winter wonderland including 3 christmas trees and my indoor christmas tree forest! Plus sources for pre-lit trees and garlands. Cozy hygge cabin vibes for the holidays

Let’s take a break from gift guides, shall we? Instead, I am SO excited to share the details of how I styled what i’m calling my cabin chic winter wonderland. I shared a peek last week, but there is SO MUCH MORE. You see, we just moved from a 640 sqft house where I could barely squeeze in a Christmas tree to a 2000 sqft house with 15′ ceilings in some places! And this year has been an utter dumpster fire, so I decided to lean into my holiday spirit and go overboard with the holiday decor. This isn’t even all of our holiday decor, but I was just too excited not to share it with you today!

Entryway Essentials for Winter

12 Entryway Essentials for Winter Cabin Living including the best outdoor doormat, the best indoor mat, boot scraper, storage baskets, winter boot storage ideas and more!

Well, we had our first snow here at our cabin! It’s a really small amount, only about an inch, but the snow has definitely made me realize how much more we have to do to get more settled here. A big one is our entryway area. I have always wanted a proper mudroom, but this house doesn’t have a designated one, unfortunately. We at least have a nook as part of our living room that we can deck out, though! That being said, I’ve had to make a few purchases for our entry area, so I wanted to share these entryway must-haves with you — especially my favorite all weather doormat!
