Decorating for Christmas at my parents traditional home was magical this year. Tour their home all decked out for the Holidays here and see our family’s annual Christmas cookie exchange spread.



One of my all time favorite Meme Hill Studio projects was helping this family renovate and update a 60’s ranch that hadn’t been touched in years! See the before pictures of the dark muave floral decor and how this room came to life! Not your Grandma House anymore!

Before and After Family living room makeover


Christmas at our house. I went with a more traditional red theme this year. Still merry and bright. See how we brought the festive colors and patterns into our Home this year by in our Christmas HomeTour.



With close to 22K pins just of this image on Pinterest who would have thought that this room would capture so much attention when my daughter Chloe redesigned her room. If you are looking for resources from this room or more eye candy click here for a tour.

Chloe Hot Pink Christmas. We went with the black, white, gold and hot pink theme and ran with it when it came to decorating this Christmas. Tour Chloe’s room here.



Who doesnt love mint green and gray together? This sweet room was designed for a granddaughter in mind. Bright and airy with a touch of gold! Happy Chic bedding, faux fur throw blanket, decorative accessories and lighting from HomeGoods. One of my Meme Hill Studio favorite images on Pinterest! 



I get more questions about this Santa painting and the plaid and gold Christmas Tree lamp! The painting was from Wisteria Flowers and Gifts and the lamp from HomeGoods.

This little sweetheart of a guest tube vase made quite a splash at Homearama this year. Each day I changes the flowers and I cannot tell you how may people fell in love with it. It moves to any shape you want and was available at Wisteria Flowers and Gifts. Tour this Pittsford, NY Captiva home and see the coastal farmhouse inspired decor, architectural features and trending farmhouse style paint colors by clicking here.



Gray washed coffered ceiling and stacked stone fireplace with flanking french doors lead you out to the covered porch.  See the porch and more of the Captiva here.

I had the best time when my client wanted to turn the formal living room into a chic home mom office. Painted oversized moroccan quatrefoil  walls and graphic patterns brought this room to life. Think you might want to try painting a patterned wall? Learn my quick techniques, tricks and see how this room came to fruition. It’s back to school and Mom needs an office too!

I will no longer put up Christmas tree lights again after purchasing this pre lit beauty from King Of Christmas. It was also the first year of decorating our master bedroom. If you haven’t had enough of our Home for the Holidays click here. It was great to participate with some amazing blogger friends.



Hand painting an ombre turquoise wall in this bathroom was one of my favorite painting projects. Its dramatic, full of style and a complete show stopper. See how its done and a quick tutorial here!

This image captures so much of this grand open floor plan home that I designed for a bachelor. I am happy to report that he didn’t stay a bachelor for too long after his house was finished!



If your favorite season is Fall then this image is for you! This is of my parents family room. With tall ceiling and big long walls we needed to fill up with large scale furniture. Fall and all the warm neutrals make this home so cozy. Tour this room and the Harvest Haven Fall Tour here.



The white and gray kitchen of the Wilshire Hill model home in Pittsford NY.  Morrell Builders spared no expenses when building this home. It’s space to say this is my dream home. I coined the design Nautical Nomad. I best described it as the home of a Newport sailor that has traveled the world and collected global inspirations and added them to his coastal designed home. If you need to search more of your inner nautical nomad, click here.

Helping this mom turn her cozy home into a coastal inspired retreat was one of my highlights. The best part was that I made a wonderful friend in the process!



Mixing styles in this dining room was so much fun. Working with clients who trust my vision is so encouraging. Sometimes they come out better than what I see in my head…. And sometimes I want to move right in!



If you’ve been following me then you know that Summers are spent at our small lake house on Honeoye Lake. We affectionately call it the Itsy Bitsy Cottage. This 745 sq. foot is our favorite place to gather on the weekends to unplug. You should see the before pictures of this kitchen that we renovated on a shoestring.. The Itsy City Cottage Reno pictures are here.



The master bathroom of the model home at Wilshire Hill. I have written several posts about this home. If remodeling a basement is on your list of things to do for the New Year you might want to check out the “Lower Level” of the Wilshire here!



For this working mom to three boys having a chic girlie home office was a must. There one problem … everyone wants to hang out in there. Who blames them?


That’s it! The Meme Hill Studio Instagram round up for my most popular posts 2016. I’m looking forward to a new year of great collaborations, painting, and design projects. May the New Year be even better than ever and thank you from the bottom of my heart for all your support and kind words. I am truly blessed to have you all! xo

Love always, Amie
