Chic Looks for Less

I often get asked about timeless and affordable furniture for the home. If we know anything about furniture, the word affordable is hard to apply with most things that are of good taste. It is very clear to me that Walmart Home is changing that they way we shop for furniture. I have selected several pieces of furniture that I would gladly put in any room in my house. Tufted chairs, high gloss benches, gold and glass consoles, and pretty textured tables.

Beyond the Curb with Pam Kelley Designs

Many of the homes I often tour are grand in size and bold in design, but the home of Pam Kelley Design brings different elements to the table. Her quaint  one story home is the epitome of charm and timeless taste. Her kitchen is the place you want to pour a glass of wine and watch while she cooks something delicious, and her front porch is where you want to sit in the Texas heat and chat with the neighbors from afar. This is a home that feels welcoming, stylish, comfortable, and collected.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2021

Before I post some updated home tours this week and a Nantucket City Guide next week, I feel I need to address the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. To be honest, I don’t ever shop this sale for anything new. I mainly like to stock up on staples that I already own and love. Nest Candles, intimates, pajamas, jackets, sunscreen, and some new kitchen accessories. The only “new” thing I am planning to buy is the Dyson cordless vacuum. These are my top picks for one of the biggest sales of the year.

Serena & Lily Summer Favorites

 

We are in the full swing of summer, my favorite time of the year and the best time to entertain. When I think about a lot of my new favorite items for the home, I can’t help but recognize that they are from Serena & Lily. This summer especially, I am constantly using my Serena & Lily Cayman Vessel to either hold my fresh summer hydrangeas, or to light a pretty candle in inside of it for an ambient tabletop centerpiece.

Walmart for the Win

I must say I am always looking for an ideal backyard retreat. Visiting my family home in Florida, I was happy to see my mom’s beautiful pots blooming so well despite the humid heat. What was even more of a surprise was seeing all the stylish and chic finds she purchased from Walmart. Nice basket planters perfectly lined, a sophisticated black wooden bench, and a very handy watering can to tend to all of her plants. Our whole family has been relying on Walmart Home recently for their great deals, stylish vendors, and easy two-day shipping for orders over $35 or more.

Patina Homes

Occasionally a new coffee table book hits the market and it is beautiful to look at for a day…and then you never open it again. When you have a true stand-out and staple book, you find yourself referring to it over and over again. The new book Patina Homes by Steve and Brooke Giannetti most certainly belongs in the stand-out category. While their beautiful California home is noteworthy for it’s light-filled architecture, effortlessly inviting decor, and lushly sophisticated gardens, the Gianetti’s also focus on architecture and interiors for clients as well.

30A

I recently just went on my first trip to 30A in the panhandle of Florida. As a born Floridian from the “main peninsula” I have not spent much time up there, yet all my Dallas friends flock there every chance they get. I was immediately intrigued by the landscape. Pine straw meets palm trees, the south meets tropical. Southeastern architecture with coastal warmth. I loved the combination.  Sanders Beach Rentals graciously hosted a group of us in a gorgeous home just steps from the beach and WaterColor Beach Club. The whole weekend was truly a treat and I couldn’t be more excited to share with you!

Beyond The Listing with Meredith Ferrell

You know when you continue to hear someone’s name come up over and over again? Well, that is how I finally reached out to Meredith Ferrell. She is a top real estate agent here in Dallas whose style is very on brand with my own. We recently toured her 1940’s home that she renovated with her husband and two young children. With the help of builder Isler Homes and designer Lindley Arthur, they made it classic, chicly colorful and warmly comfortable.

The Proper Collection

Beautiful bedding is such a luxury. Often when I see beds with beautiful custom monograms and gorgeous applique, I immediately get intimated that is very expensive and unaccessible. However, the creators behind the darling The Proper Peony children’s line is changing it all. Enter The Proper Collection, a line of bespoke bedding that is hand-crafted and sewn on 100% Italian-milled pique or sateen. It is custom crafted with high-quality and style that can last years. I am excited to share with this wonderful new website with you all!
