Pillow Love…

No one can ever have to many pillows.  It’s the easiest way to freshen up a space!  I love the soft colors used in these Fred Shand pillows which are available at Anthropologie.  Also the tiny coral cross-stitches and printed and appliqué plumes are pretty awesome.

Art.com {Discover the Art You Love}…

Today I’m bringing my third installment of a recent collaboration with the new Art.com.

Inspiration {Gold & Black}…

This is a look worthy for fall time.  Black and gold look fantastic paired with red and grey.  Of course I always say produce a room like this against a white backdrop.  The colors can pop that much more!

They’ve Got Style…

What can I say Tea Collection!  You’ve produced some sweet threads once again! When my kids started school it was still so hot outside.  I was super excited to have the weather cool down a bit just because they could wear their cute back to school pieces from Tea Collection.  Eden is wearing the Finn [...]

Sunday Inspiration {Kitchen Love}…

This industrial kitchen feels warm, probably due to the pretty rug and fantastic light fixture.  I’m a huge fan of metal and wood mixed so this space would fit nicely in my imaginary dream home.
