MY FAVORITE HOSTESS/TEACHER/JUST BECAUSE GIFT

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving and are off to a great start this first official week of the Christmas season! This week officially marks the start of many get-togethers, dinners and cocktail parties, which means hostess gifts will be needed, as well, so I am hopping on here to re-share one of…

TIPS FOR HANGING A FLOOR-TO-CEILING PHOTO GALLERY WALL

I love a beautiful photo gallery wall; I can’t think of a better way to add a little drama and personalization to your space than a wall full of the faces of those we love. We’ve had one in every house we’ve lived in, but it wasn’t until I saw this hallway in this project…

THANKSGIVING PREP

This weekend we have our first of two Thanksgiving celebrations and I’ve been planning my table all week! As much as I love going all out with a fancy table for the holidays, this year I’m going super simple with a buffalo check tablecloth, my grandmother’s silver candlesticks, my beloved French wine glasses, bamboo flatware…

FAVORITE ETSY FINDS

Taking a break from prepping for the first of two Thanksgiving celebrations this weekend to hop on here and share a few recent and a few favorite Etsy finds! I’m going to do a post on some of my favorite small businesses to shop from this Christmas, but figured I’d start with a few items…

INSPIRED: A TONE-ON-TONE KITCHEN BY DAN SCOTTI DESIGN

East Hampton-based designer Dan Scotti is one of my favorites to follow on Instagram; his tailored spaces effortlessly blend old and new with beautiful tone-on-tone color palettes, lots of texture, clean lines, vintage industrial lighting and a mix of antique and mid-century furniture. His attention to detail is incredible – case in point, the stunning…

THE SWEETEST SHEET SET FROM A SURPRISING SOURCE

I was hunting for new Christmas sheets for the kiddos when I stumbled upon this adorable organic gingham sheet set from GAP Home and couldn’t add them to my cart fast enough! It’s not easy finding bedding that is peachy/coral for my little miss’s room (everything is always PINK), but this set couldn’t be a…

ENTERTAINING/SERVING PIECES FOR THANKSGIVING

As promised, today I’m sharing a roundup of beautiful entertaining and serving pieces for your Thanksgiving gathering! I know I sound like a broken record, but over the years, I’ve really pared down my entertaining basics/necessities, only buying items that are as beautiful as they are practical, but that can also easily be dressed up…

THANKSGIVING TABLE INSPIRATION

Thanksgiving will be here before we know it and we will be celebrating it twice, starting the weekend before, so I’ve been busy scheming how I’ll be setting my table this year! I’m currently obsessed with checks, so I think I’ll be pairing them with lots of texture, bamboo, tortoise, my grandmother’s silver candlesticks and…

INSPIRED DESIGN: LB COPELAND INTERIORS

I recently stumbled upon the portfolio of designer LB Copeland and immediately fell down a beautiful rabbit hole of inspiration. Her spaces are beautifully layered with just about everything I love in interiors – soft and moody color palettes, lots of texture, subtle pattern, antique pieces and plenty of natural light, creating an understated elegance…

GETTING A HEADSTART ON CHRISTMAS

I promise I’m not going to skip out on posting Thanksgiving goodies, but every year, without fail, many Christmas decorations I’ve had my eye on are sold out by the time I try adding to my cart, so I’m rounding up a bevy of beauties I love – some I have and few I want!…

LIMELIGHTS ON EVERY CORNER

One of my favorite things about fall in the south is that there is a plethora of limelights still in bloom, everywhere you look! My neighbor has a few twelve – plus foot high bushes and she lets me snip a few from the back; this time last year, every corner, countertop and table was…

LATELY INSPIRED BY

If you guys haven’t seen the latest issue of Frederic Magazine, I highly recommend picking up a copy the next time you’re at the grocery store. Designer Alecia Stevens’ Minnesota farmhouse revamp is absolutely stunning, from the beautifully layered textures, soft colors and patterns to the jaw dropping, light-filled sunroom adjacent to the kitchen. (I…
