SUMMER READY

May 21, 2024

As we make it through all five thousand activities planned these last two weeks of school, end softball season and begin baseball and swim team and prepare for some fun trips this summer, I’m daydreaming of lazy days by the pool with nowhere to be and nothing else to do than flip through a book…

About time I update this old blog here and I can’t think of a better way to do so than with some photos from our picnic last Friday at one of our favorite spots in town, a secret English-inspired garden! I love this place all year round, but especially now in late spring, right before…

BEAUTIFUL LIGHTING THAT WON’T BREAK THE BANK

March 22, 2024

One of my favorite ways to add warmth and coziness to a room is with beautiful lighting. I really dislike recessed lights; even with a dimmer, it can be really harsh, but I know that going without sometimes just isn’t an option, so I like to layer beautiful table lamps, floor lamps, sconces and pendant…

SPRING (p)INSPIRATION

March 19, 2024

Happy first day of spring! We’ve been blessed with the most incredible weather, but it’s been accompanied by a healthy dose of pollen on EVERYTHING. The longer days and post-dinner walks with the kiddos may have us all covered in yellow, but it’s been so worth it to have extra time outside before the heat…

January 19, 2024

I’m loving the unseasonably cold weather we’ve been having lately – it’s been the perfect chance to cozy up with some favorite design books and peruse some goodies online while the littles are at school. I’m always gravitating toward texture, muted color palettes and fresh greenery, but especially this time of year when all the…

JANUARY (p)INSPIRATION

January 8, 2024

Despite being a self-proclaimed perpetual summer girl, January is one of my favorite months of the year. After the hustle and bustle of the Christmas season, I love taking the first month of the year to recharge my batteries and bundle up to take long walks, read books (or take more time to flip through…

INSPIRED: TONE-ON-TONE IN THE ENTRY

January 4, 2024

I have a handful of house projects to tackle in the New Year and at the tippy top of the list is a little refresh for my entry. I don’t plan on anything drastic – just a fresh coat of paint for the walls, trim, ceiling, doors and Thomasville piece, to start. For a while…

September 28, 2023

A few weeks back, I asked what you guys would like to see more of here on the blog and an overwhelming number of you asked for clothing/wardrobe picks! I’m the farthest thing from a fashion blogger, but I thought we would switch gears from all things design and decor to share a few fall…
