Fall is the perfect season to host an outdoor movie night in your backyard! It’s that time of year when outdoor furniture is still outside and it gets dark earlier than the summer which means your little kiddos can enjoy the movie night as well. It’s so nice to transform your backyard with cozy blankets, […]

For the longest time our backyard was mainly just grass and a little small area where we laid down some pavers so that we could set out a little plastic table/chairs during the summer. Not exactly ideal for entertaining. For the past couple of years we have wanted to build a deck and enjoy the […]

For me the best part of any get together is the appetizers. I don’t even need the main meal. I just want savory bites that I can snack on! Potato puffs, pigs in a blanket, brie wrapped in puff pastry equal yum to me! Spinach & artichoke is one of those appetizers that I have […]

The Easiest Spinach & Artichoke Cheesy Bread

I love a good tablescape. I think it’s the inner Southern woman inside of me. Please tell me I’m not the only New Yorker that subscribes to Southern Living magazine and looks up houses in Birmingham, Alabama. I truly think I was meant to live in the South. I love all of it! The tradition, […]

I love to find unique items that can be used as artwork. Artwork is so important in a home. It is one of the final layers to a room and something that I typically find missing in clients’ homes. They are too nervous to make a bad decision that they just don’t make one at […]

My living room is one of the rooms that evolved drastically from when we first moved one. Originally I painted the walls chocolate brown and did accents of white, blue and orange. That lasted maybe 2 years.

Our dining room sat empty for months. Okay maybe it was empty for just a handful of weeks and then we couldn’t take it anymore and put in a folding table and plastic outdoor chairs, but in my mind that was still empty.

On the main floor of our house we have a Florida room. Being that it’s a Florida room it is a considered a 3 season room, because there is no heat in the room. The previous owners used it as an indoor patio with outdoor furniture and it looked like this when we moved in.
