Family Style: Holiday Pictures

Is it just me, or is anyone else hesitant to do holiday-themed family photos? It’s like, I want to do them SO BAD, but the practical side of me is like… 2 kids… 1 husband… matching(ish) outfits for 4 people… preferably non-screaming children, which means coming up with a good bribe to keep them pleasant… good weather… carving out a time of day where all 4 members of the family are happy and available, PLUS making sure the photographer is available too… Ok. I already need a glass of wine just THINKING about those logistics! I had a holiday backdrop all planned out, but I ultimately decided that practicality was going to win. I don’t know the next time we’ll get a family photo scheduled, so I wanted a setting that wasn’t too holiday(esque) so we could hang these photos in the new house and not have to worry about…

My Style Philosophy

"Low, Low, High"

Low. Low. High. — What does that mean? Let me explain.

I love putting looks together, whether it’s interior design, my own outfits, or my kid's clothes. I go by a rule that is two-thirds “affordable” and one-third "a splurge.” Life is all about balance, and I love finding good deals and pairing them with high-end, specialty pieces.
Here on AmyHorany.com, you will find that I follow this philosophy to the fullest. My go-to stores are Target, Marshall's, HomeGoods and Amazon, but I also love splurging from time to time as well. My goal for this platform is for my eye-for-design to help you find your own balance in life & style.

7 Things I Learned When Building a Home

These past few months have been a blast for Chad and I. We’re building a beautiful home with a builder we couldn’t be happier with in a neighborhood that we LOVE. But, although I’m a designer and have experience in the world of remodeling, I’ve never built a home from the ground up. So – for all of you that might be new to this like me, here are 6 things I’ve learned about the home building process thus far. 1. Nearly all of the design decisions are made in the beginning. Chad and I aren’t building a custom home. We’re building in a master-planned community, so we had a number of different builders and floor plans we were able to choose from. If you didn’t already know, when you go with a builder with a pre-designed floor plan, you are able to add “structural options” as well as design…
