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

Chic in Italy

June 6, 2014

I recently came back from a trip to Italy. I visited Florence, Tuscany, and Rome, each place majestic in it’s own right. Florence quickly became my favorite city. It is no wonder that so many artist flock there due to the city’s ideal lighting. Tuscany was just as charming, although the steep, windy roads and

Welcome to The Potted Boxwood

June 5, 2014

A potted boxwood is a precursor, a telling symbol of timeless style. I often find it to be true that when you see a potted boxwood somewhere in the landscape, there is a tremendous chance that the decor inside will be of good taste- and, if you are lucky, very fabulous. While this is not
