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…

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.


Back Porch Makeover

Living in Texas, you just never know what the weather will look like from day to day. Over the summer, the temperatures rise above 100 degrees, while in the winter we’re known to get snow and ice one week, and 80 degrees the next. With warm and sunny days throughout the year, a beautiful pool view, and a movie projector for nightly TV watching, we knew we would use our back patio year-round. We started with painting our siding a matte black to make the space feel more modern. Next, we added a cedar ceiling that my Dad, Father-n-law and husband actually did themselves. Copper accents  were the original inspiration for the space, so I picked up a few copper side tables, lanterns and sconces to finish off the look. But if you ask me, the first two things you notice when you walk out on our back patio are our new Haiku…

Everything You Need to Know About Microblading

For those of you who have seen “microblading” around the internet, but are still wondering what it is, then today is your lucky day. I’ve been wanting to try it for years and I’m so happy I finally took the plunge. Thanks to the AMAZINGLY talented Carrie Hunt of The Browtique, I now have the eyebrows I’ve always wanted. To give you some background, microblading is a semi-permanent makeup that gives your brows a fuller look. It can either fill in “balding” areas (for me, the outer parts of my brows were thinning), or it can simply fill in your existing brows to make them more bold. The technique creates hair-like strokes throughout your brow instead of one single “block” tattoo. The look is incredibly real and very convincing. Before I got mine done, I had seen it done on others and completely thought it was their real brows. So…
