Hi, Dear Bold Ones of Cupcakes and Crinoline!
Mary Beth is so sweet to allow me to share some of my projects with you, and I am just thrilled to be here! This girl has some series skillz… I adore this 99 cent Upscaled Tote she worked magic with andthese Chocolate Toffee Cupcakes with Toffee Buttercream Frosting make a girl swoon!
I love living in color, and as you can see from my Home Sweet Home Tour that is under way, I totally put that into practice!
We’ve been in this house for four years, and it is slowly becoming ours.
My very favorite project is a recent one… I took our builder boring staircase and turned it into something Bold!
Using removable wallpaper from Spoonflower, I made a fun and funky staircase that really is one of a kind. Would you ever consider putting wallpaper on your stair risers?
Last year, I also put together a little Pallet Project. I had my eyes on this Nantucket Porch Swing, but with a price tag of over $800, I knew that was an unrealistic dream!
So, when I found some pallets made of quality wood, I knew I just had to try my hand at building a porch swing inspired by my dream one.
It was a labor of love and, so far, it’s held up!
As you can see, I love color. In fact, my love of color is what inspired my blog name.
As the home decor trend moved to a more neutral palette, I realized that I was not going to be following along. When I started blogging, I knew that my home would be filled with color and that I couldn’t hide it. I just had to be bold about it… and thus, The Bold Abode was born!

You can add it gradually and subtlety but using color is fun! I encourage you to play with it… to try it out!
Thank you so much for having me, Mary Beth! You are the just the best!
