In her shoes

IN HER SHOES: Haven and Home

  1. The Southern Lady

    What a great “Day in the Life”! A southern girl born and bred, I know what you mean about feeling your inner southern belle-it really is more of a quality than a birthright. You feel it, or you don’t.

    And trust me, I know plenty of southern girls who just don’t.

    As long as you embrace it whole-heartedly, that’s what counts 😉

    It looks like you and Marianne are in very busy-but extremely wonderful-fields of work. It must be so much fun to look at samples of this fabric, these pieces of furniture. Living vicariously through clients and helping them to inject their personality and love into their homes.

    How great for you to find such a calling!

    “In Her Shpes” is quickly becoming one of my favorite things to look forward to on Fridays (especially once the wee one is fast asleep).

    As always, thanks for sharing and best of luck as you continue on in your wonderful job.

    Camila- LOVING this series. And so glad to see Marianne on here. She is a dear friend to me… She’s so great. When I read about how she checks her email several times a day- I realized that I was partly to blame for the many I send her! Have a great weekend! xo- Brooke

    You guys both rock!! I love your styles & your attitudes! Great featurette! Looking forward to more! I also wanted to tell you about my great appreciation for Old Westbury Gardens- from your other post…it's so gorgeous there & I try to make it there (it's ten mins away) at least once each summer- we take the dog on the "bring your dog day"!

    I love how we who work from home, remind ourselves to stay focused and on track. I think that is one of the biggest challenges when one works from home.
    Now – I love Haven and Home even more since I know she puts so much passion into her work.

    This was so cute! I remembered your friday series so I read it during my lunch break. This is NOT a good habit for me to get into, it could lead to much procrastinating!

    Oh cool!! We are totally neighbors on the island! My hubby & I just moved into a house last year & are in the midst of redoing a bathroom…it's so much fun to decorate, but definitely overwhelming with the amount of teeny tiny decisions to make!!

I love Marianne and her blog, she always posts such great things- always gets me thinking about my house, and yes also how I lived in the South where the weather is nice all the time.

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.

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, […]


Can you believe it’s already November? Before we know it Thanks No. 1 Modern bar cart with patterned sides that looks great as is, but would also look amazing painted a pop of color! Plus it’s only $157. No. 2 This lucite bar cart is a personal favorite of mine. Look at those chic lines! […]

Budget Friendly Bar Carts

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 […]
