FEBRUARY (p)INSPIRATION

January flew by in what seemed like the blink of an eye, and while I don’t mind the colder temps, I’m so tired of all the rain lately. Needless to say, I’m craving ALL the green right now and my recent pins reflect it in full force! The next best thing to adding one houseplant…

INSPIRED DESIGN: MCGRATH 2

I have always appreciated and gravitated toward a classic, tailored approach to design – muted color palettes, lots of texture, antique pieces mixed in with more modern art and accessories and subtle hits of pattern that blend together for an effortlessly chic feel. One of the design teams that embodies this very approach is New…

A NEW PIECE FROM SUE DE CHIARA ART

For longer than I care to admit, I’ve been looking for an oversize piece of art to replace the wood starburst mirror that’s been hanging over my mantle for the last decade. As much as I loved the mirror paired with my wicker demijohn bottles, it was time for a change. The mirror was four…

JANUARY (p)INSPIRATION

Ah, Pinterest……what would I ever do without you for inspiration? Ever since Insta turned into a never-ending feed of advertisements and reels, Pinterest has retained its title as my favorite source for inspiration, not to mention my preferred social media outlet to fall down a rabbit hole on when I have a few minutes. Typically,…

LIMELIGHTS ON EVERY CORNER

One of my favorite things about fall in the south is that there is a plethora of limelights still in bloom, everywhere you look! My neighbor has a few twelve – plus foot high bushes and she lets me snip a few from the back; this time last year, every corner, countertop and table was…

LATELY INSPIRED BY

Designer Alecia Stevens’ Minnesota farmhouse revamp is absolutely stunning, from the beautifully layered textures, soft colors and patterns to the jaw dropping, light-filled sunroom adjacent to the kitchen.

OCTOBER (p)INSPIRATION

October is one of the most magical months in the fall; the temps hover between the 70’s and 80’s, there’s little humidity and everything is still green. This is the time of year when we eat outside the most, rush home from school to drop our stuff and ride bikes and play baseball until time…
