I miss my coffee bar in my bedroom! ☕️🖤 In case you missed this post a few months back, I turned the wet bar area in our early 90’s upstairs bedroom into a coffee station! (swipe to see “before”)⠀

Our new house is a single level, so an in-room coffee station wasn’t a necessity. I can handle the walk to the kitchen 😂, but boy was that a nice feature in our last house! 🖤

Check out all the before and after photos, details and shopping sources on the blog: head tomkatstudi...o.com and search "coffee" 🖤

I'm in love with this "motherhood" print by my friend, Vana, the artist behind @lepapierstudio. It's absolutely perfect for Mother's Day (gift for your BFF, perhaps?) and it's featured on @brickyardbuffalo today, so grab a few! 🖤

A little story if you are new to TomKat... back in 2008, one of my dear friends sent me a custom silhouette portrait of my kids that Vana created (swipe to see it...they're so little!). Meredith had found her shop on Etsy. Curious about Vana's sho...p and darling products, I visited Etsy for the first time. I had never heard of it. 🖤

Just a few short months later, I started my blog and opened my own Etsy shop which became one of the highest ranked shops on Etsy (at that time) with over 20,000 sales! How's that for crazy? 🖤

My business has evolved and changed in so many ways over the past 10 years, but I have to thank my friend, @mernelson13 for introducing me to Vana's work, and thank @lepapierstudio for inspiring me to create my own shop and for her friendship all of these years! 🖤

Thank you ALL for following my journey, and especially to those who have been following since the beginning! The next chapter is unfolding and I can't wait to share next week! 🖤

xoxo Kim ⠀

Happy Saturday, friends! This is the first Saturday that I can remember that I have NOTHING to do until 4pm.... and it feels SO good! I slept until 10am and now I think I'll get some things done around the house. Maybe hang some art, unpack the last of our boxes or even try to start tackling our mess of a garage. Wish me luck! ⠀

I hope you have a SPLENDID Saturday! ⠀

The kitchen is truly the heart of the home, don't you think? 🖤
It's where everyone always gathers during get-togethers. This dream kitchen we remodeled will likely remain one of my favorites forever. White, light, bright with black accents for contrast and warm wood. It was the first time I was able to choose new cabinets for a home and they turned out amazing! (swipe to see the "before" images) I hope the new owners (talking to you, Melissa!) are enjoying it! 🖤

I saw this darling drawing the other day by one of my fave artists, @sophieandlili and thought, "Hey! That's us!"... but it's actually Ryan + Blake. 😂

Is it me or are they just the most adorable celeb couple? 🖤

If aren't following Jennifer from @sophieandlili yet, I highly suggest you do... for a daily dose of darlingness! ⠀...

Of all of the remodels we've ever done, this bathroom may have gone through the greatest transformation! What started out as dark and dated with black walls, mixed metal faucets and cranberry colored sinks + tub, became a modern, bright space! 🖤

Good morning, guys! I know I've been spotty with posting lately. I often wonder how everyone is hustling (aka doing the work)... AND keeping up with posting it all too? 🖤

I'm just trying to keep up here! I know I've been eluding to some things happening over here, and things are falling into place and I'm checking things off the list day by day. 🖤

I haven't worked this hard in years, but the excitement and anticipation of what's to come has me GIDDY. Stay tuned friends...... ⠀

Love you all! xoxo Kim ⠀

It's Friday! Pour another cup of coffee and get it done! I'm working on write-ups for our latest HGTV feature today, which is always a struggle for me because I much prefer creating pretty photos than pretty words. Wish me luck and have a fabulous Friday! 🖤

This quote from #greatestshowman is very fitting for me at the moment, as I have been working on some exciting new things for TomKat that are keeping me awake. 😊🖤

I absolutely love the thrill of creating new ideas and endeavors and can’t wait to share what I’ve been up to, with you all! 🖤

Stay tuned!! xoxo Kim 🖤...

I am so excited that we will be shooting my new kitchen tomorrow! In the meantime, enjoy THIS gorgeous kitchen designed by @studiomcgee. My favorite combination... white, black and wood. Those huge black and gold pendants are everything. 🖤

I know you guys love "before" and "after" photos so here's another goodie for you on this lovely Tuesday afternoon. 🖤

This is the kids' bathroom (jack + jill) in our last remodel. I'm obsessed with how it turned out and the best part about it is something you can't see in this photo... it has a laundry chute! Yes, right down to the laundry room. Amazing, right? 🖤

Swipe to see the awful "before" image and stay tuned for all of the details on the blog! 🖤...

Cheers to Monday morning and a great week ahead! It feels good to be sitting at my desk, marking things off of my to-do list after a crazy busy weekend with Kate's birthday party, soccer games + Easter! 🖤

Looking forward to styling our next shoot for HGTV and possibly shooting a few rooms in the new house to share! 🖤

Hope you have a wonderful week, friends! 🖤...

Happy Easter, friends! 🐰🐰🐰
Hope you are enjoying your day with family and friends! xoxo

It's birthday party day for my girl! I always stress at the last minute about her parties want to be sure all of the girls have the best time. Then, when the party comes, I realize that I worry way too much about the details and that all you have to do is get girls together and they have fun! ⠀

Her party theme is "Kate's Favorite Things" and the party will be exactly that... ⠀
🖤 Cupcake Decorating⠀
🖤 Slime Making⠀...
🖤 Hair/Makeup ⠀
🖤 Learning a Dance⠀
🖤 Making Cotton Candy⠀
🖤 Being with her BFFs⠀

I literally threw this all together this week. Ordered plain cupcakes, bought frosting/sprinkles, bought slime supplies, have the "older" girls come to do hair/makeup and teach a dance, borrowed a cotton candy machine! ⠀

Wish me luck and remember... when you are getting your kids' parties together, try not to stress too much and instead enjoy it! Keep it simple because kids have fun together no matter what! 🖤

xoxo Kim ⠀

I can't believe Easter is this weekend! 🐰 I'm hosting brunch and haven't planned anything yet because I've been focusing on Kate's birthday party (also this weekend)! Oops! I better get to work! 🖤

Are you hosting Easter too? I designed this free printable bunny menu last year and you can download it on the blog: tomkatstudio.com, search "vintage easter bunny" 🐰
