new (antique) end tables for lydia’s room

August 21, 2019

I dropped my sweet baby girl off at her first day of kindergarten this morning and am not even embarrassed to admit that I couldn’t make it out of the room without bawling my eyes out.  So, given this momentous day for her, myself and Luca, I thought it only appropriate that I would post…

a vintage JB Van Sciver bamboo bed for Lydia

December 7, 2017

I’m a firm believer that good things come to those who wait – or, in my case, when you aren’t even looking in the first place!  It seems like whenever I’m on the hunt for something in particular, I always come up empty handed, but my best finds to date have always been popped up when…

loving lately: canopy beds

October 5, 2015

Why is it that the one room in the house in which we spend the most time is usually the last one to get any love and attention?  We may be passed out for 99% of the time we’re in our bedrooms, but  why pass up the opportunity to add some drama?  I’ll be honest:…

5 amazing headboards/beds

when a plan comes together…

August 2, 2011

Last week, I posted this idea board for a master bedroom on which I’m slowly, but surely making headway: …and this week, we’ve been getting down to business, bringing everything together!  The Bellesol mirror is even more striking in person (and the Baroque bedding behind it isn’t too shabby, either!): The homeowner fell in love…

serene retreat

July 25, 2011

A while back, I posted this idea board for a master bathroom in a new construction home I was working on.  The home was finally completed and the homeowners were able to move in a few weeks ago, so now it’s time for the real fun to begin-decorating and bringing in all those little details…

moody blue beach bedroom

June 1, 2011

I love light, bright beach houses with plenty of crisp white paint as much as the next person, but who says you can’t get the same effect with dark, cozy colors?  Lately, I’ve been so inspired by spaces that can achieve a laid back, sophisticated beach feel without resorting to pastels and seashells, that I…
