The highlight of our weekend was heading out to Shelter Island. I have lived on Long Island for over 20 years now, but I have never been. Shelter Island is on the east end of Long Island and you can take a ferry over to it from Greenport or Sag Habor. We decided to take it from Greenport and we ventured out super early to make a 9am ferry!
-Loving this faux boxwood wall from Palm Beach Lately. I’m not sure if I would be bold enough to do it in my home, but I’m really love the look of it. So, let’s never say never.
-How cute are these clutches? There are so many different options in the shop, but this pattern is one of my favorites.
-I’m trying to enjoy these last couple of weeks of summer, but I’m also starting to get excited about Fall especially my Fall wardrobe. How cute are these scalloped heels/a>
-Fall shopping has also meant doing a little shopping to organize my office. I can’t wait to get these letter trays!
-We are going to Shelter Island and I have never been there before! Any must go to spots? I did a little research and Marie Eiffel Market is on my list, but not sure what else to do!
Beauty blogger I am not, but I have been getting some questions about my beach waves so I wanted to share my steps for getting slightly messy beach waves.
Since I love color and pattern a lot of the time I get to flex those design muscles much more with kids rooms. Adults take a little more convincing that beige is not the only color that exists on the color wheel. I loved working on this tween bedroom style plan, because it’s honestly something I would happily have in my own home. Not sure how Jon would feel about it. Haha.
No.1 How beautiful is this wallpaper? Swoon. I love the funky zebras sprinkled throughout the floral wildness. It was my jumping off point for the room.
No.2 I’m obsessed with this new duvet from Crane & Canopy. Isn’t that coral color amazing? It’s a perfect shade of coral. Plus the white piping is an amazing detail and it has a built in flat sheet so it’s super easy to make the bed, which is a plus for a tween.
No.3 What girl hasn’t wanted a canopy bed? I know I have. This is the perfect bed to grow up with a little lady.
No.4 I love the little zebras in the wallpaper and wanted to use a gold zebra bust centered above the bed in the canopy space. Just a little dose of quirkiness.
No.5 I can’t say no to a tassel. I don’t think I will ever be over them. Love these black out panels with tassels. They are perfect because they are mainly solid panels which work well with the patterned wallpaper. Plus the tassels work perfectly with the colors in the wallpaper.
No.6 I always like to balance pink/coral with yellow. It’s a perfect combo. These fretwork nightstands are a good scale and help me break up all of the pink.
No.7 Love that these glass lamps still allow you to see a little bit of that fabulous wallpaper. Win!
No.8 You always need a soft cozy spot for your feet to land. To finalize this design I found this amazing rug.
Can’t wait to see this room come to life!
For the past two years I have been lucky enough to live a short train ride away from the HGTV Blogger Block Party. It’s always at the same time as the NY Gift Show so, it’s always fun to go in early and walk the show and then head over to the block party and see what is going on! I’m always met with a fresh copy of the latest HGTV magazine and then some refreshing cocktails. There is always an amazing step and repeat where you can take pics for days and get that perfect shot and then the very best part is all ofthe speakers!!!!
This year is the best one yet because among all of the amazing speakers there is Emily from Style by Emily Henderson, John & Sherry from Young House Love and Genevieve Gorder. I’m not going to lie back in the day I would easily miss a class in order to catch Trading Spaces. Ha ha what can I say? It was before DVR. So, getting to see Genevieve Gorder in person is pretty epic!
I will be making my way into the city on the 22nd and I hope to see you there! Seriously! I always go to this alone and it would be nice to see some friendly faces!
Here is the agenda for the whole day:
Make sure you plan on RSVPing if you want to attend! You can do so here.
