1. Updating your Doors with Schlage

    Last year I changed the interior and exterior door handles to Schlage and it has completely enhanced my home technologically and aesthetically! When we bought our home last year, the knobs were a hodgepodge of mis-matched golds, most of which were tarnished. I wanted sleek new knobs that matched our aesthetic, with Schlage I found just that.

    For my powder room and bedroom doors {featured above}, I chose the Birmingham Lever with Wakefield trim Bed & Bath Lock in Satin Nickel which has privacy locking. Then for the doors that have a deadbolt {the the doors to my patio and pool below}, I chose the Accent Lever with Camelot trim Keyed Entry Lock in Satin Nickel and a Single Cylinder Deadbolt with Camelot trim in Satin Nickel for the deadbolt. For my back door, I chose the Schalge Sense Smart Deadbolt, which has been life changing. I could now go on walks with the kids and not have to worry about bringing my keys! Or if my mom or friends needed swing by to borrow milk, or check-in on the house when I was traveling, they could enter with keyless entry!

    If you are looking to update your door home, I wanted to share a few FH approved suggestions that will transform your entry no matter the budget. Check out my suggestions for items under $50, $100, and $500, giving your home a face-lift without breaking the bank!

  2. White & Bright Decor Favorites

    Ever since the Holidays ended I have been ready for a home refresh, craving a mix of whites and neutrals in fun textures. The core of a room starts on the ground, and so many of you have asked me about my neutral rugs in my home, so when I came across this handwoven rug with natural fibers in a gorgeous durable neutral on One Kings Lane, I had to share! Then how about all these accessories… from the Vineyard Geodes to the Trellis Motif Ginger Jars, neutrals have never had so much character! Then I am obsessed with these Donna Karan Home Pillows…

  5. Best of Fall at the #MiaChateauFH

    I have to say that I really love Fall. After a super hot summer, there’s something nice about the slight weather drop {I know, it’s Miami and the word “slight” is key here, but at least the mosquitos have started to go away!!}. What I love most though is the Fall decorating. I know I shared my Fall Home Tour last month but I wanted to share a few more “real life” behind-the-scenes photos since we did our shoot. First off, I just love that I have hung wreaths all over the house… the front door, over the dining room mirror… we…
