July 15, 2014

There are some interiors that are just so good, so timeless, so perfectly executed, that whenever you come across them, whether by flipping through old magazines or browsing Pinterest, you just have to stop to admire all over again all the things that made you love the space in the first place.  For me, this…

garden variety design

June 11, 2014

I have a serious obsession with charming Cape Cod-style homes covered in silvery, weathered shingles, but a charming Cape Cod covered in silvery, weathered shingles set in South Carolina’s Lowcountry?  Be still my heart!  Add a fresh helping of crisp white paint, soft linens and a ton of texture and the Kiawah Island home of…

Have you guys seen the June issue of Architectural Digest yet?  It’s good, guys.  SO good.  I finally got to flip through it last night after baby girl went down and was stopped dead in my tracks as soon as I got to this boat house on Lake Geneva.  The hubby and I have always…

December 11, 2013

I have been in love with the Christmas decor of Christy Ford, owner of antiques shop And George in Charlottesville, Virginia, since it was featured in the Washington Post and on Christy’s blog years ago.  Dressed in light blues, lime green and golds and using citrus as accents is such a refreshing change from traditional…

summer-inspired table setting

June 7, 2013

I’ve had this table setting from the home of designer and blogger extraordinaire Mark D. Sikes in my inspiration folder ever since I posted his home tour months ago.  When it comes to setting a summer table, there is no color combination more classic than blue and white – mixed with a little texture, some…

get the look: hamptons guest house

May 17, 2013

Great things come in small packages and this Hamptons pool house-turned-guest house/couple’s retreat is a fabulous example.  I’ve loved this little slice of heaven, which was actually part of Traditional Home’s 2009 Showhouse, since it was first published…I still have the dog eared issue amongst my hoard of magazines! Comfy, oversize furnishings, a blue, gold…
