INSPIRED DESIGN: KATHRYN HERMAN LANDSCAPE DESIGN

When I think of classic, elegant landscapes, landscape designer Kathryn Herman is one of the first to spring to mind. Her ethereal landscapes, gardens, garden rooms and greenhouse designs are so effortlessly beautiful, organic but grounded, and reflective of her passion for timeless British landscape design. I first discovered Herman’s work when a follower on…

SPRING THINGS, PART II

As is typical here in the south, we have a couple of weeks of spring-like temps,if we’re lucky, and then it’s on to blazing heat and humidity while my northeastern friends are still donning sweaters and jeans. So, while I’m craving lots of fresh greenery (see Spring Things, Part I here), I’m already gravitating toward…

EASTER BASKET IDEAS FOR KIDS

Easter is right around the corner, which means it’s time to start thinking about baskets for the kiddos! I always look forward to putting them together for my littles and, though I usually stick with the same things every year – books, a new pair of sunnies, some candy and maybe a few other little…

A SAG HARBOR STUNNER BY STEVEN GAMBREL

If you guys have been following along for a while now, you know I have a *mild* obsession with the work of New York-based interior designer Steven Gambrel, and this stunner Sag Harbor Victorian that he completely renovated and redesigned is no exception. Gambrel has an unmatched eye for detail and it’s beautifully displayed in…

GARDEN-INSPIRED FINDS FOR SPRING

Blue and white may be my all-time favorite color pairing, but fresh spring green and rattan, wicker and everything woven is a very close second. I’ve found myself gravitating toward the house plant section of the grocery store and grabbing another bird’s nest or stag horn fern every time I go in there lately, just…

SPRING THINGS, PART I

I hope you all had a lovely weekend and are off to a great start this new week! Just popping in quick to share a few pretties that have landed on my radar for spring this morning, from a beautiful burl wood tray and a rattan wine holder to a gorgeous and incredibly reasonably priced…

WHAT I’VE BEEN PINNING LATELY

Pinterest is, by far, my favorite social media platform; there is a plethora of inspiration at your fingertips when you need to give your mind a break and just check out for a few minutes or fall down a beautiful rabbit hole of inspiration. For me, that time comes in the evenings when the littles…

ELEVATED CLASSICS FOR THE KITCHEN

It’s been a hot minute since I’ve blogged regularly, but it couldn’t be a more welcome distraction for me to get back into it right now. I feel like I’m forever in a state of decluttering and purging items from every corner of my house (especially when I’m stressed), but the one room that I…

NEW BOTANICAL PRINTS FROM SHOP UPCOUNTRY LIVING + 20% OFF YOUR ORDER

Anyone who knows me well knows that change is not something I’m quick to embrace – especially when it comes to my littles. A perfect example is the gallery wall in my little miss’s room, which has not been touched since I hung it when I was pregnant with her eight years ago! While my…

HOW TO MAKE A BOOK PAGE WREATH

I said I’d never make another one of these book page wreaths years ago because they were so time consuming, but then fast forward almost a decade and here I am, hot gluing my fingers together and absolutely eating my words! I used to make these for friends and family back when I didn’t have…

HOW WE KEEP OUR TREE ALIVE THROUGH THE NEW YEAR

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving and are easing into decorating for the most wonderful time of the year! We spent the holiday up north, but drove home Saturday so we could grab a tree before they were all gone and boy, did we find a beauty of a nine footer! If it…

BEFORE AND AFTER: OVERSIZE PICTURE FRAMES

I will never cease to be amazed by the power of a few coats of paint. I’ve been wanting to change things up in my living room and give it a little refresh without spending a ton of money, and my favorite way to make a dramatic impact is always with paint. Since I am…
