Even if preppy/coastal isn’t your everyday style, it sure is fun to embrace seersucker and gingham during those hot summer months. Needless to say, I LOVE their new limited-time collection at Target that just dropped today. It’s super adorable and a perfect start to summer. AND it’s affordable. Sign me up, please. My absolute favorite item from the collection is that blue and white striped midi skirt. I WANT IT. When I saw the sneak peek back in April, I…

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.


3 Must-Haves for a Media Room

If you read my recent post about our media room, you already know that it’s not exactly the “standard” media room that you normally see. I built it, not just so my husband could watch football or basketball, but for our entire family. I built it to be multi-functional. Hey, if you’re going to spend money on building out an extra room, you might as well make it as versatile as you possibly can, right? So here’s a little review from my last post… Last summer when Chad and I were choosing a floor plan for our new build, we  had a list of must-haves that we stuck to. One of the main features that was top on our must-have list was a media room. I didn’t want the stereotypical media room though. We have two young kids and making the space work for them AND us was very important.…

Amazon Lately: Tassel Earrings

For those of you who don’t know, Amazon is AMAZING. It’s always full of surprises, and sadly, I’ve developed a bit of an addiction to it. I mean — Who doesn’t love getting a box of goodies delivered to their house on a monthly… weekly… er… daily basis? If I can order it on Amazon, I will. Even my jewelry. Though shopping at overpriced boutiques might be a fun afternoon out with the girls, I have a real hard time paying $80 for a pair of earrings that I know I can find online for $15. Heck. Maybe even $10. Especially if they’re trendy like tassel earrings. I have a feeling this look won’t be in style forever, so I really don’t want to pay an arm and a leg for the designer version. I’d much rather get a few pairs in different colors and pay $15 or less for…



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…
