Hello and welcome to Restyle It Wright! My name is Colette Wright and I’m so glad you stumbled across my little piece of the blogosphere! Here’s a little bit about me…
By night, I’m a Labor and Delivery Nurse (best job in the world!) and by day I’m usually sleeping dreaming of color schemes, a room to wallpaper, or finding a great piece of furniture to make my own.
You can bet if there is free time, I’m curled up on the couch with my laptop and a cup of coffee perusing pinterest and dreaming up mood boards for room re-do’s! I have a weakness for lamps, rugs, and all things gold…no really, it’s a problem. I love to make each space beautiful and functional and I hope to inspire you to beautify your own space!
Our family of 4 moved from a 1300 sq ft house in a suburb of Chicago to a 2300 sq ft house in Grand Rapids, MI in 2015. Living in such a small house forced us to be creative and intentional with the way we decorated, now with so much room to play with the possibilities are endless! My to do and honey do list are about a mile long and my husband is thrilled and already tired.

Speaking of my other half, starting this blog wouldn’t be possible without his support! He listens to my endless ideas of projects to do, hangs curtain rods, installs shelves, and paints each room meticulously (sometimes the same room 4 different colors until we get it just right!). He even spent an entire weekend planning, taping, calculating and painting chevron stripes on our daughters ceiling, needless to say a trip to the chiropractor was in order after that. We are DIYers at heart and can’t wait to turn this cookie cutter house into our home.
We share this home with our two kids who keep us endlessly entertained and very busy. Between hockey, marching band, music lessons, and gymnastics, we are always on the go! We want our home to be beautiful, functional, and “fancy” as my son would say…a welcoming and refreshing retreat from the chaos!
Thanks for taking the time to stop by!
If you’ve been following along for awhile (or even if you haven’t) you may have noticed a big gap in time from posting. In July 2017 I was hit by a drunk driver after leaving work. You can read more about my PTSD and recovery here.
Please feel free to leave a comment or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I have learned so much through other bloggers, family and friends and would love to hear your feedback.
