Mark D. Sikes I have the itch to change things up around here so bad.  I blame Instagram and the fact that I’ve been too exhausted / busy with my littles the last nine months to do anything more than a little zhushing of my corner built-ins, but change is good and so I’m going…

October 9, 2014

I don’t know about you guys, but the (somewhat) change in the seasons has me wanting to tone things down even more in my house and add some muted, tone-on-tone color.  My first thought is always to swap out some of my throw pillows for some fresh new color and pattern that’s just a tad…

When it comes to art, I tend to gravitate toward pieces that are subtle (and sometimes, not so subtle) reminders of the sea.  The hubby spent his first four years in the Marine Corps in Hawaii and our first house was five minutes from the beach here in the North Carolina, so I like to…
