SHOP SMALL: LOVING LATELY FROM PALOMA AND CO

La Dolce Vita was one of the very first design blogs I ever followed more than a decade ago, so when designer Paloma Contreras opened Paloma and Co, it was inevitable that I would covet every single curated piece! This is one of my first stops for gifts for friends, hostesses and sometimes even teachers,…

LONG LIVE DAHLIA SEASON

The only upside to the close of summer is that my back-to-school blues are assuaged by lots and lots of dahlias! My friend Sarah started her own sustainable flower farm last February and I couldn’t wait to sign up for her fall subscription for all the dahlias, zinnias and cosmos my little heart could wish…

6 TIPS FOR SCORING AT THRIFT AND CONSIGNMENT SHOPS

I was recently having a poolside conversation with a friend who was looking for some end tables for her living room and about fell off my Adirondack chair when she said she had never set foot inside a consignment shop! Most of the furniture in my house is from antique/thrift/consignment shops; I LOVE the thrill…

VASE ROUNDUP

Nothing screams summer louder than an armful of beautiful blooms in an equally amazing vessel. Whether snipped from your own garden or bought from the grocery store, there’s just something about a summery arrangement of fluffy hydrangeas or wildflowers that make a space seem that much more cheery and bright!

BUDGET-FRIENDLY PRETTIES FOR THE KITCHEN

Over the past couple months, I’ve been slowly clearing out closets, cabinets and pantries and getting rid of/donating quite a lot of junk that I just don’t need anymore. Making space has improved my whole outlook toward my home and how I am able to function in it and it’s been so therapeutic tossing things…

TO PAINT OR NOT TO PAINT? NEW COUNTER STOOLS FROM ONE KINGS LANE

The past few months I’ve been beating feet and FINALLY getting to all the little cosmetic updates I’ve been wanting to tackle around here the past year and, for someone who is constantly starting projects but rarely finishing them, I can’t tell you how good it feels every time I cross another one off my…

FOUR NON-FLORAL, EVERY DAY CENTERPIECE IDEAS FOR THE TABLE

Setting a beautiful table is a simple luxury that brings me so much joy and that I look forward to every day-especially now that my little miss is so into helping – but this time of year when it’s slim pickings in the floral section of almost every grocery store (yes, even you, Trader Joe’s),…

THE COOK’S ATELIER + FRENCH-INSPIRED PRETTIES FOR THE KITCHEN

One of the questions I’ve gotten a lot recently is what are some of my favorite cookbooks. There are two requirements for me to really, really love a cookbook and they are: one, healthy recipes that are delicious and super quick and easy to execute and two, beautiful photography. I’m not just talking about the…

LOVING LATELY ON ETSY

Etsy has come a long way from what initially was like searching for a needle in a haystack (for me, at least) and is now one of my go-to stops for one-of-a-kind and antique finds! One of the hardest parts of going under lockdown last spring was watching so many small businesses struggle to stay…

ORGANIZED CHAOS + A ROUNDUP OF CHIC TRAYS

Last Friday night after the littles went to bed, I cozied up with a cocktail and immediately fell down a Pinterest rabbit hole of chic solutions for organizing all the random chaos around my home! I may share pretty pictures of my house here and on Instagram on a daily basis, but the truth is,…
