Island Bohemian Summer Decor

cloth and patina island boho decor13a

Welcome to my home! For those of you who don’t know me, I love a soft neutral color palette, weathered woods and a bit of sparkle. I truly believe that our homes or at least one special area should be our own sanctuary. A comfortable place where we can escape and unwind, even if it’s just for a little while. I try to always create a peaceful, relaxing atmosphere with a bit of elegance { a girl’s gotta have a little sparkle in her life} My soft weathered palette puts me at peace and helps me unwind. Kick off your shoes, grab your favorite drink, and relax if just for a bit.  Continue reading

Soft Fresh Spring

springa

Spring finally made its way into my home. The pressure of everyone coming over for Easter put a fire under me to finish up all the little details. I figured I would share bits and pieces of the house in stages and today I wanted to share the entry table. As always, I like to keep things simple and light. This year I brought in more earthy elements with bits of twigs and moss. Continue reading

A Vintage Vanity

Publication5This is a little collection that I put together for a charity event with the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and wanted to share with you all. I truly enjoyed creating it and it is for such a good cause. The funnest part of all is I got to pull out my favorite chalk paint® color “French Linen”. Continue reading

Exposed Brick Beauties

ac10eef591a534cfcabe6558ac828b0bI have always loved the beauty of exposed brick in pretty much every room and have been obsessing over it so much lately that I thought I should do a post on a few gorgeous spaces. I mean look at this most gorgeous bathroom. I always wonder if I would be able to paint over exposed brick, but have to say it was the right choice here. This white bathroom is serene and elegant.

Merry Christmas

1a

Just wanted to share a few pictures of my home for the holidays. Life kinda got in the way this year and I didn’t get to decorate as much as I wanted, but am happy with how everything turned out. I stayed pretty simple, but elegant. Here is a picture of my bedroom with some simple evergreen and a few of those little flower ornaments I was talking to you all about earlier.

2a

A simple tree that I added to a weathered urn. Added a bit of torn linen and one of those fabric scrip ornaments that I chased all over town for. I added a few of my vintage rhinestone brooches to the tree for a bit of sparkle.

3aI carried the same style over to the livingroom. Some evergreen, a few rhinestone here and there and a few of my paper mache trees I made last year.

4aI am in love with these spools of ribbon I found at Marshalls this year. I couldn’t help myself this year. I normally only buy handmade ornaments and pretties or make them myself, but there were really some pretty pieces this year.

6aI had to put up those little flowers everywhere I could.

8a

Here is the table that I have been working on. Still a work in progress, but have been having fun experimenting with the chalk paint® by Annie Sloan. I will go into more details later on the colors I used. I know I am going to be quite hooked and can’t wait until after the holidays when I have more time to play with the this.

This grey piece came from the Maxwell House hotel in Nashville, TN. from way back when. It is the top portion to the writing desk that’s in my bedroom. I found it off of craigslist from an older couple just a bit north of here. It was a medium colored wood, but just had to add a grey wash to it. 10aI found these charming little burlap and linen stockings that I am going to add some vintage rhinestones to.

13aI am just so excited for Christmas this year. Me and my kids drove over to the other coast over the weekend to surprise my mom. That truly was one of the best Christmas presents for all of us. I’ve been trying to slow down a bit this year so I can enjoy all the little things the holidays has to bring. Hoping you are able to do the same. Well hoping you enjoyed a little peek into my home. I look forward to sharing more with you soon.

I am wishing you all a Christmas filled with love and laughter. Hoping you are able to spend the day with the ones you love, if not, take the time to yourself and enjoy.

Merry Christmas from my family to yours.

And So The Painting Begins

IMG_1629Look what was waiting for me today when I got home! I feel like the only one I know who hasn’t been painting with Chalk Paint® decorative paint by Annie Sloan. Either way I am happy to be on board and cannot wait to start painting! Continue reading

Counting my Blessings…

As Thanksgiving is almost here, I can’t help but be reminded to be thankful for all the blessings in my life. My children mostly, who fill my heart with so much love. Our new adopted dog, Bob and cat, Sam. My business that continues to slowly flourish and fill me with a deep sense of pride and happiness. My faith, strength and trust and for the charming little cottage that we call home.

thankful and blessed

For the continued support, encouragement, friendships and inspiration from all of the wonderful people who inspire me and follow along with me every day. For this, I send you big giant hug and a thank you from the bottom of my heart.

For these things I am grateful.

I’ve been pretty sick over the past couple of weeks and haven’t felt up to decorating much, so kept things very simple. I added wheat bundles all over the house along with my little pumpkins and lots of candles. Sometimes though, simple is so much more.

I’d love to hear how you all decorate for Fall and Thanksgiving.

Wishing you all continued blessings.

Count the blessings that you have and be good to yourself.

 Blessings…
