Master Bedroom Story with BEHR

A Finished Master Bedroom with BEHR | The Fresh Exchange

I love completing a project. It’s probably one of the reasons I ventured out to be my own boss. Completion isn’t a problem. I love how it feels when I send a project off and check it off the list. When we purchased a home, we were excited about the process of making it our own with all sorts of projects. We had never had a space to make entirely our own, so it was…

For years I have loved coffee, and have even taught a hand full of people how to grind and brew their own coffee, but I have never posted a how to brew guide.

Cotton for the Everyday

Cotton for the Everyday | The Fresh Exchange

Have you ever taken inventory of your favorite items in your closet? Have you ever looked to see what you seem to pull continually every day and ask why? Mike and I are both creatures of habit. We love it when comfort, great design, and simplicity all come together in our wardrobe. Each season we do a small purge of things we aren’t wearing any longer or have worn out.
