Decorate, Stairwell

Our Stairwell Project | Design Plan & Inspiration

September 21, 2020

OUR CURRENT STAIRWELL Today I am sharing with you the details of our upcoming stairwell project. This is a space with little to be desired. The walls are brown. There aren’t any windows in the space, so the brown makes the room look even darker. Here is a view from the landing up to the second floor. Notice the cream paint for the trim. It is intentionally cream, but it looks dirty. It is actually…

Decorate, Entry Way

Our Cute Entryway Update

September 17, 2020

It has been awhile since my last project. And we use our entryway every time we come in and out of the house as we don’t have a garage entrance. Why not refresh our little entry? Let’s talk about what it looked like before I pulled out paint… BEFORE Our entry way is a small, but functional space. It is nestled between 4 doorways: one to the kitchen, one to the dining room/living room, one…

Fabulist: My Favorite Items this Fall

September 13, 2020

It has been awhile since I have been here. I think about this little blog all the time, but just have not been able to find inspiration. I am sure that I am not the only one to feel this way. I would like to say that I have a lot of updates to report. I don’t. I have not been up to an awful lot. I get up, go to work in my home…

My favorite coastal light fixtures + a little puppy drama

April 29, 2020

A LITTLE PUPPY DRAMA Today I was able to get to the chapter in Michelle Obama’s book where she spills the details on how she and Barack met. It is such a cute story and I have relished the peak into their lives. (Read: Audio Books: What I am listening to now + what I am going to listen to next) I took this afternoon off for a little rest and relaxation. I also had…

Audio Books: What I am listening to now + what I am going to listen to next

April 27, 2020

FINDING TIME FOR AUDIO BOOKS I am an avid reader. I like cuddling up in my over-sized slip-covered chair in my living room with a cup of coffee and reading for an hour or two. Up until the last few months, I was finishing at least one book a month. I like going to used book stores or the Goodwill to find books. I don’t typically buy books brand new unless I find them on…

Flower bed refresh + how we are surviving quarantine

April 26, 2020

It has been a while since I have posted. Life has been a bit different for awhile. The husband and I have been sheltering-in-place and taking it easy. I work remotely, so I have been throwing myself into client work, unsure if I will even have work the following week. I have been assured that work will continue, at least through the month of May. Right now, that is all the assurance I need. I…

Winter Blues: Designing with Blue

February 26, 2020

A couple of weeks ago we woke up to snow falling. It was so beautiful. It has been a couple of years since we had snow in Atlanta, so this was quite a treat. I lived in New York during college, so I have seen my fair share of snow. I am not a fan of driving in the stuff and I certainly don’t care for shoveling it. In Atlanta we only got a couple…

New Laundry Room Rug, Bunny Cookie Jar, & a Family Visit

February 24, 2020

Hello, friend. I hope you had a wonderful weekend! I had a great weekend. It has been awhile since I have had what I consider a regular person style weekend. For weeks, the husband and I have been shopping for tile, looking at cabinets, driving around town looking at stone, or one of the other 1 million things that come with a remodel. This weekend was normal and I loved it! This weekend I went…
