an insta garden to love

June 15, 2017

If I hadn’t ended up in interiors, I think I would have loved landscape design.  For me, there is nothing more satisfying or therapeutic than planting, pulling weeds, trimming bushes, deadheading flowers or picking plants and blooms for my pots.  After having lived in this house for seven years now, our landscaping (all of which we planted…

one of the prettiest instagram accounts

August 15, 2016

If a good instagram feed is one where you want to “like” every photo, then Maura Endres (@m.o.endres) has a truly amazing one, because not only do I LOVE each and every photo she posts, but I feel a little like a stalker because I’m constantly going back to sneak more peeks of her stunning…

new old stone house

October 29, 2015

Anyone who has ever built a home from the ground up or embarked upon a renovation or full-on gut job can tell you that progress can be excrutiatingly slow.  And while it can be a long time before rooms start to look like habitable spaces, it’s the little victories that come in the form of…

fall inspired: heather bullard

September 22, 2015

This may be the first year in my entire life that I’m not hanging on to summer with a vengeance.  It’s kind of hard to get excited for Fall when it’s still in the high 80’s and low-to-mid 90’s and yet, I’m dreaming of soft sweaters, heirloom pumpkins, and the gorgeous country home of Heather Bullard. …

the breathtaking work of brynn weiermiller / beckoning art

There is art and then there is art that is so mesmerizing that it takes your breath away and leaves you thinking about it (and longing for it) long after you’ve seen it!  The sea-inspired oil paintings by Brynn Weiermiller definitely fall into the latter category – I stumbled upon her work recently on Instagram and am completely smitten!…

insta good: steven gambrel

July 14, 2015

If you guys have been reading here for a while, you know I have a slight obsession with the work of interior designer Steven Gambrel.  So, it was only natural that I would find him on Instagram and proceed to drool over progress pics of his current projects and, best of all, detail shots of vignettes and spaces inside…

I’ve got quite the design crush these days on Hamptons interior designer Tom Samet and his classic, East Coast style, thanks to his enviable Instagram account – he does updated traditional so well through the use of color, pattern and texture (not to mention a healthy dose of Chinese Lattice wall covering) and beautiful layering.  Every picture…

Instagram should be named, “Insta-crack”, for it’s immediately all-consuming and obsessive powers.  Lately I’ve been making a beeline for any feed brimming with shots of gorgeous gardens, emerald green landscaping and beautiful flower pots; I’m not sure if insomnia is to thank for my Insta-obsession or if I have insomnia as a result of said…

I hope you all are doing A LOT better than I have been the last 48 hours!  I got a touch of food poisoning on Sunday night and it completely shut me down.  I’m no stranger to being sick while having to take care of a little one – I got mastitis when Lydia was…

One of my favorite house tours was a few years ago when Glitter Guide did a feature on then Charleston-based graphic designer Hanna Seabrook’s beautiful home.  Aside from having the perfect, lived-in, layered look, what I loved most about her home was how she blended heirloom pieces with more modern finds for a young, fresh feel…
