so good: green + rattan

August 13, 2019

Blue and white will always be my favorite color combination but I’ve got to say, I’m crushing hard on green lately!  Mixed in with a little rattan, bamboo and linen, it’s another perfect combination for summer!  I always love the fresh pop of color that a new house plant brings; it just makes a room…

the master of moody blues

October 14, 2015

The way this week is going, it feels like it should have been Friday two days ago.  I had a whole painting tutorial set up for today and after signing in this morning and discovering it had completely disappeared,  I’m throwing in the towel and posting some serious eye candy, instead.  Grr…. Last weekend, I…

inspired: blue interior doors

January 15, 2015

It’s been so long since we’ve seen the sun around these parts, it’s starting to feel like we live in the Pacific Northwest.  I may be loving the cold weather, but I’m definitely craving a pop of soft color to liven things up a bit around here. I posted a picture on Instagram the other…

inspired: navy blue, camel + gold

October 7, 2014

Thank you all so much for the sweet (and helpful!) comments on yesterday’s post!  I’m always so appreciative of feedback, especially in the case of getting little miss on a regular napping routine!  And speaking of routine, it seems like I write a lot about my love of all-things-navy blue, but if you’ve been reading…

inspired: blue and white

April 23, 2014

I went to throw a load of laundry in this morning and as I did so, I noticed how my wardrobe has completely changed for Spring – almost everything I’d worn over the last week was either blue or white or blue and white!  Chambray shirts and white jeans, blue and white sriped tops, shoes…

inspired: bright, bold curtain panels

March 26, 2014

I know I’m not alone in saying I’m sick of this cold; this time of year down here in the South everything and everyone is usually covered in 12 inches of pollen and instead we’ve got ice pellets and near-freezing temperatures.  I’m yearning for green grass and sunny skies and lately have been so inspired…

inspired: blue/black dining rooms – would you dare go dark?

March 18, 2014

Where has the time gone?  I feel like I apologize more for not blogging as often as I did before baby than I actually post lately!  Lydia is an absolute doll (she started sleeping through the night at 7 weeks!) but being a momma is a lot of work; I’m enjoying my time off from…

color inspiration for the nursery: navy, blush, coral + gold

September 10, 2013

Now that the cat’s out of the bag about my pregnancy news, I’m so excited to share my nursery inspiration with you all!  I feel extremely behind the curve ball with the nursery design, to be honest – the only thing I’ve bought so far is the crib, which still sits in the box, waiting…

black + white + chic all over

August 20, 2013

I had high hopes of sharing before and after pics of the farmhouse table that I made and custom stained myself with you today, but the weather’s been so crappy, making it impossible to get good shots.  So, I thought I’d share some goodies that have caught my eye lately, instead: gorgeous black and white…

indigo love

August 16, 2013

When a friend asked me the other day if indigo blue pillows were a good pick for her front porch chairs, my first thought was, “Indigo is perfect for ANYWHERE”; so I, of course, responded with an emphatic YES!  It’s pretty obvious how much I LOVE deep, dark and moody indigo and navy blue (hello,…
