A Modern Mountain Retreat

July 29, 2014

As I have mentioned before, I love a modern mountain house. If you are going to have a vacation home, you may as well keep your space clean, simple, and refined. Everyday life brings enough clutter as it is! The home in Aspen, which I am currently staying as a house guest, took a modern

Aspen Moss

Growing up in Florida, every winter would bring a flux of people from the North coming to the sunshine state to escape the snow. Floridians somewhat-kindly refer to these people as “snowbirds.” This term is used not only to describe what they are fleeing, but often the color of their well maintained hair. Traffic is

Around The Townhouse

July 25, 2014

I once heard someone compliment a house by saying that they loved how they could open the front door and see straight through to the back. I was 11 years old when I heard that remark and I distinctly remember thinking that it was anything but a compliment. While open floor plans seem to be a

Luxe Laundry

July 24, 2014

Coming home from any vacation always means lots of dirty clothes, which also means lots of laundry! I am going to drop off my little Emmie the Pug at day care (don’t judge- she needs it!), and then spend the rest of the day separating whites, colors, delicates, and dry cleaning. My mother is incredibly

A Classic Dallas Dwelling

July 23, 2014

I am heading back to Dallas today. As much as I love Florida, Dallas has me hooked on it’s sophisticated charm, fantastic food and fabulous shopping. You frankly can’t go wrong in a city that is the birthplace of Neiman Marcus! Today, I want to tell you about a different Marcus and my obsession with a home

Orange Is The New Black

July 22, 2014

Orange is the New Black may be a hit television show (that frankly gives me anxiety), but it is also a color, that when used properly, can be a great addition to any room. I know one Dallas woman who loves orange in her home and in her fashion. She uses it in such a

The Land Of The Pines

July 21, 2014

Anytime you call the Carolina Hotel in Pinehurst, North Carolina they answer the phone saying, “It’s a beautiful day in Pinehurst!” Rain, sunshine, or snow, their greeting remains the same. It is hard for this small golfing community to think the day should be anything other than beautiful, especially when surrounded by towering pines, chic boutiques,

Reality Check

July 18, 2014

I must admit, I love a good dose of reality TV. I could watch Andy Cohen chat up the housewives on Bravo all the live long day. I know that it is often mindless and overly dramatic, but it is a fun way to unwind after a day of heavy news (like yesterday) and purposeful work.

Living in Color

July 17, 2014

When the July-August issue of Veranda arrived, there was plenty of design inspiration to love! While the cover of Mark D. Sikes home was enough motivation to pick up the issue, what was inside was equally as delightful. Immediately when I saw that Kirsten Fitzgibbons and Kelli Ford had a property featured, I knew that

The Simple Delight of Blue & White

July 16, 2014

I feel I would be remiss if I did not post about blue and white. While all of my favorite design bloggers cover it enough for me, I need to say my praise to the classic and timeless color combination. I thought about doing a post on my favorite triple color palate of blue, green,
