I am so thrilled to bring you a home tour that is unlike any other. Interior designer Edith-Anne Duncan graciously invited me to her glorious home in Blacksburg, Virginia and I can easily say this home blew me away with color, personality, and thoughtfulness. Her home is a feast for the senses and her cheerful design can’t help but leave you smiling.
It seems these days that houses are getting torn down at an alarming rate. I have voiced my concerns about the erasing of architectural history before (read here). Sadly, it doesn’t stop unless we educate and promote those who take the time and thoughtfulness to preserve. For this reason, I am excited to share four beautifully restored homes for young families.
I am so excited to bring you a Chic Peek tour from my place of birth, Tampa, Florida! I had the honor to speak to a garden club in Tampa at the stunning home of Betsy Best. She graciously welcomed us to film her beautiful home for The Potted Boxwood. As you will see, the home is adorned in many lovely fabrics and full of timeless collections.
I am thrilled to bring you this tour that has been in the works for quite some time! The darling Leslie Jenkins of Jenkins Interiors restored a beautiful Fort Worth home using her signature elements of playful pattern and color, all while keeping the home traditionally fresh.
Hi friends! I have a fun beach house tour to be posted Friday and the PAINT blog post is coming Monday! In the meantime, I thought I would share a few things that have caught my eye recently. I feel so drawn to color and pretty pattern these days, more than usual. I can’t believe summer is almost here, and with it the rush of May. Thankful for y’all and hope you are inspired by the latest XO

Last week, I visited the charming Chicago suburb of Hinsdale, Illinois. Real estate agent Anna Fiascone invited me to this sweet town to show me a glimpse of her chic Midwest. The downtown had hip restaurants, a delicious bakery, and lovely boutiques all a train ride away from the city. We are fortunate enough that she toured us through two remarkable homes in Hinsdale. The one today is not to be missed.
I recently did a Q&A with my instagram audience and many of them asked for chic looks for less. I have truly been impressed with the quality coming from Walmart. Gold bamboo picture frames, high-quality faux topiaries, blue & white ginger jars, caned bed frames, and sleek desks…all at affordable prices.
I have been speaking up on my social media platforms about the lack of preservation around Dallas, and many have commented that it is happening in other cities as well. So often, it is hard for young families to envision how you can make a historic home relevant for a modern lifestyle. I am thrilled to be able to bring you a perfect example of how a family did just that.
