Segreto Style…New Inspiration

I am so happy to be featuring Leslie Sinclair’s new book…”Segreto Style”

Leslie is the creator and owner behind Segreto Finishes, the Houston based company that specializes in custom paint finishes for walls, cabinetry, floors and furniture. Leslie’s first book, “Segreto Secrets to Finishing Beautiful Interiors,” was launched just a few years ago and has been an absolute favorite of mine. I’ve browsed this book many many times for inspiration.

Island Bohemian Summer Decor

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

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.

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.

Well thanks so much for stopping by!

Wishing you all continued blessings. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your families and if for some reason you aren’t able to spend Thanksgiving with the ones you love, take the time to yourself, to remind yourself how important and special you are! Count the blessings that you have and be good to yourself.

 Blessings…
