Eyesore No More

June 19, 2014

When I think of essential items for the home (which is rare- I am all about the unpractical), I think of how to make them more pleasing to the eyes. For example, a laundry room. Chances are it is not your favorite room, some horrible electrician probably installed fluorescent lights, with an equally horrific counter

White House Wednesday

June 18, 2014

So now that you saw my first love (see My Affair With A House), I wanted to show you the homes that I currently gravitate towards. Some are cream color, egg-shell, soft beige, picket-fence white, really white… Do you see a pattern? I didn’t realize this “white hot” obsession until recently, and it is not

My Affair With A House

June 17, 2014

I have always loved pretty places. I think part of that stemmed from growing up with a very stylish grandmother and great-grandmother. Not to say that my mom is less stylish, I just think she was over-saturated as a child with too much fabric, china, and antiques that she decided to take a more fresh

Southern Hospitality

June 16, 2014

This weekend my friends and I hosted a bridal luncheon for dear friend who is getting married in Atlanta in the fall. She is the quintessential southern belle, who is a fabulous combination of preppy, stylish, and charmingly witty. She is also the ultimate entertainer, so we had to make sure this party would live

Let’s Play Pool

June 13, 2014

As a native Floridian turned Texan, I know a thing or two about heat. Currently, it seems as if summer has jumped right in and that it won’t be departing anytime soon. So while it is here, I am also going to jump…right into the pool and into my weekend! Happy Friday and Happy Everything!

Stairways to Heaven

June 12, 2014

Have you ever been to party where there is plenty of good food, drinks, and entertainment, yet all you want to do is walk up stairs and tour the rest of the house? Frankly, I have been to my fair share. It is uncouth to ask for a tour, yet it is even more brazen

Posh in Palm Springs

June 11, 2014

I recently visited Palm Springs for my best friend’s bachelorette party. Her parents own a beautiful home there, which is decorated in monochromatic tones and lots of attractive Restoration Hardware furniture. It was the ideal place for a girl’s getaway. Of course these days, a trip to Palm Springs is not complete without a visit

Closet Envy

June 10, 2014

I think all woman (and stylish men) dream of the ideal closet, I know I do. If I think about the countless hours I just stare at my clothes wondering what to wear, it would add up to a significant amount of time. Wouldn’t you rather spend that time contemplating outfits on a plush ottoman,

Going Green

June 9, 2014

The other day I was looking for a blue and white ginger jar to go by my front entry, yet I kept gravitating toward a green and white Chinese porcelain piece. After my fifth time picking it up and putting back, I finally decided I had to have it. Recently, I have been attracted to

Come And Knock On My Door

June 7, 2014

If there is one thing that Italy and most European cities have, it is beautiful doors. I could barely walk a block without stopping to snap a picture. I even bought an antiqued lion head door knocker for the gorgeous black lacquered front door that I don’t even have (yet)! Their doors are just so
