Getting All Settled Into The New House

It’s been a while since I’ve visited the ole’ blog here, but after months of craziness, I’m finally back and ready to share all my adventures as of late. We recently moved into our new house and have been working hard to get all settled in. Although we built our house from the ground up, we still had a TON of work to do after we moved in. Since builders have their own markup, we wanted to do a lot of upgrades and additions after we moved in. After talking with a number of different contractors, we settled on a few that we were really happy with, and completed most of the work within the first month of moving in. We added things like floating shelves, a wall of custom-built bunk beds, a media screen wall, a shiplap surround for our living room fireplace wall, an extended back patio, and…

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.


House Update: Countdown to Move-In

It’s been a while since my last house update, and this one is exciting! When building a house, there’s always something going on, but sometimes it’s a lot of “behind the scenes” stuff that isn’t super fun to photograph. But we’re finally at the stage where you guys can start to actually see some of my selections come into fruition. I’ll get into more detail regarding our color selections, tile selections, carpet, wood floors etc., but that will be in another post since there is so much information to share. But as you can see, we chose a very simple color pallet for the entire home. White walls, grey doors as an accent, and we’ll have a beautiful caramel-colored wood floor being installed next week. Most of the fixtures will be replaced once we move in, so any of the chrome fixtures you see in these progress pictures will all…
