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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

As everyone these days has a transitional twist on a classic look, I can’t help but continue to gravitate towards a truly timeless traditional aesthetic. Just like I love British baby names for their timeless, yet unique nature, I adore the polished comfort of an English countryside estate. I always like to peruse House & Garden UK to get inspired, and what I found recently was worthy of sharing.

As I started to write this post, I was going to preface it with the fact this is not my usual content. It is not about architecture, interiors, landscape, or design. However, I am currently typing this laughing at the paradox because that exactly what this post is about.

I’ll be honest, when I think of Etsy the first thing that comes to mind is monogrammed cups, bachelorette party swag, and knick-knacks that I do not need. It wasn’t until I did a Chic Peek Tour of Daley Bennett’s house that I completely changed my mindset. I now know I can buy everything from beautiful turkish rugs and chinoiserie panels, to luxe brass hardware and custom roman shades.
