friends + family sale at serena and lily!

October 2, 2019

We’re home sweet home from another epic trip to Newport for my cousin’s wedding and I’m always so inspired by the laid back, casual New England style whenever I’m there, especially as I’m currently readying our home to usher in the change of seasons!  Luckily for me, Serena and Lily is having a 20% off…

September 20, 2019

We’re inching closer and closer to it feeling a little more like fall around here and, I know I’m in the minority to still be complaining about summer coming to a close, but I have to admit, I’m not disappointed to get a little break on the temps!  I’ve never been one to decorate my…

adding fall touches to your entertaining basics

September 23, 2018

I’m probably the only person on the planet that isn’t high fiving fall’s impending arrival (I’m always holding on to the end of summer with both hands), but this year, despite the steady 90 degree temps, I’ve already started to introduce little touches of fall to my daily dinnerware and serving pieces.  I always keep my entertaining basics…

fall pretties for the home and table

October 25, 2016

This weekend we finally saw a little relief from 90 degree temps and, I must say, it was so nice to be able to play outside without the bugs eating us alive and then snuggle under cozy throw blankets and watch movies as a family.  Time to officially say goodbye to summer as we close…

diy: mini pumpkin taper candle holders

October 17, 2016

Despite being more of a spring and summer girl, fall in the south is my favorite time of year to entertain.  There’s no pollen or mosquitos so you can actually enjoy the cooler temps and beautiful evenings dining alfresco or even just sipping a cocktail or a cup of coffee on the porch under a…

fall finds for less than $50

October 21, 2015

I have never really been one to decorate for fall, save for some strategically placed mums and heirloom pumpkins on my front porch but lately, there are so many goodies out there that are making me rethink decorating for the season.  The only thing I love more than a good bargain is when the score…

pretty up the front porch for fall

October 12, 2015

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!  I’ve been on a roll the last four days, cleaning, organizing and tossing a ton of crap in our garage during nap and bedtime.  Nothing feels quite as amazing as crossing off every single item on your to-do list, am I right?  The one thing I still…

forever chic: ralph lauren

October 8, 2015

I was going through some old shelter mags over the weekend and found an issue of House Beautiful from November 2004 featuring the Hampton’s Showhouse designed that year by Ralph Lauren.  I couldn’t put it down, constantly taking little peeks all weekend!  The design, decor and styling is a testament to Lauren’s forever timeless, tailored…

pillow picks for fall – cc deux vie

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…
