    I loved this issue. That parasol frame above the fireplace just drew me in and I couldn't stop looking.

    It will be fun to see what you come up with. Your sister is a lucky girl. 🙂

    Toile has never been my favorite…but I loved it in that space! I mean I LIKE toile, I just never felt the urge to ensconce myself in it. Cut velvet however…hold me back.

    I was OBSESSED with toile too. So funny. Remember the harlem toile from Old Domino?? I now only have a toile dish towel, but I think it would be an ok pattern to have in my hypothetical nursery. Great find!!

    Toile was my first favorite fabric ! I never did use it in my house but I did in my best friend's and my mom's house.

    I fell in love with this apartment in HB and posted it on my blog a few days ago as well. I used to be toile crazy too but am less so now. I do love how subtle this toile is in this darling apartment.

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! […]

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 […]
