LOVING LATELY: FALL EDITION

For someone who has always held on to the end of summer with both hands, never wanting it to end, I have to admit that this time of year has quickly become my favorite for entertaining!

ORGANIZED CHAOS + A ROUNDUP OF CHIC TRAYS

Last Friday night after the littles went to bed, I cozied up with a cocktail and immediately fell down a Pinterest rabbit hole of chic solutions for organizing all the random chaos around my home! I may share pretty pictures of my house here and on Instagram on a daily basis, but the truth is,…

A NEW (TO ME) WAY TO POLISH SILVER

Climbing out from under a mountain of laundry while my littles are at school this morning to share a new (to me) find that has completely changed how I clean my silver pieces! I know, I’m showing my age right now in terms of what excites me these days, but it’s just too good not…

FALL FINDS FOR THE TABLE

Fall is officially in the air and I’m so excited to have made a few tweaks to my table for the change in season! I say it all the time, but you don’t need to buy new entertaining pieces every time a new season rolls around; instead, I’m a big believer in investing in neutral…

COLLECTING: VINTAGE WICKER DEMIJOHNS + WHERE I FIND THEM

One of my favorite things to collect are antique wicker demijohn bottles. They add so much texture and interest to mantles or bookshelves, make for a beautiful table centerpiece and are always great conversation starters whenever we have company over! I’ve been collecting them for the better part of a decade and I always get…

NEUTRAL HOME DECOR PIECES TO TRANSITION INTO FALL

I’ve never been a huge fan of “decorating” my home for the change of seasons; rather, as the weather starts to change this time of year and temps begin to dip, I pull out my chunky throws, light all the candles and pull out a mix of wood, marble and woven pieces to really up…

5 TIPS FOR STYLING GLASSFRONT CABINETS

If you guys follow me on Instagram, you have probably noticed my glass front shingle-style kitchen cabinets in the background on quite a regular basis.  I know glass front cabinetry isn’t for everyone, but the truth is, I LOVE mine.  They make my kitchen feel so open and airy and they’ve helped me keep clutter and…

PRETTIES FOR THE KITCHEN

One of the requests I’ve gotten a lot lately from e-clients is for help decorating a kitchen. I tend to gravitate toward the whole “less is more” approach when it comes to kitchens, in that I only display what I actually use on a daily basis – and then find the prettiest options there are…
