Adelicia Caree

We’ve been given so many rules about designing our homes, such as always painting the walls white and that your dresser, bed, and nightstands must match.

The One Place You Shouldn’t Drink Your Morning Coffee

Adelicia Caree

The older I get, the more I realize the majority of my habits are inherited from my mother (for better or worse). Growing up, my mom’s bathroom counter was constantly cluttered with empty, lipstick-smudged coffee mugs. Now that I’m an adult, I find myself bringing my morning coffee into the bathroom as I get ready for the day, too.

Quick Interior Designer Tips for a Bedroom Refresh

Adelicia Caree

My husband carved out an office area for himself behind the pantry—just enough space for floor-to-ceiling Ikea bookshelves and a small desk to Zoom from.
