    Hi, I love your blog and I am one of those unnerving silent readers that hardly leave any commentary. I’m sorry; most of them the time, I simply have nothing to add…until today. I’m really excited that your family is in South Africa–where I’m from!! There are too many things to bring back from faux Zebra hide, woven flat baskets (similar to but much better than the ones sold by West Elm), and lots of art. You really can’t go wrong with Cape artwork; it is the epitome of Cape Town: sophisticated, breathtaking, and with grounded sense of Africa. Anyway, your work is fabulous and what’s up with Americans wanting baby elephants? That’s what my (New York born and raised) husband wants as well 🙂

    • effortless says:

      Ha ha too funny. Love that your NY hubby wants an elephant as well. Since you’ve been reading my blog you know I have quite the love for elephants. They are all over my house. They are just little good luck charms for me.

      I really wanted some artwork. Hopefully Mom and sissy know what I would like. They have been in South Africa since the 16th and will be coming home by the end of the week. They have had a ball. Totally jealous.

  7. It’s gorgeous!! I looove the lamp!

    Good call with the three Euro shams – looks great! The fretwork looks amazing – totally worth all the math and measuring!

  11. Melissa says:

    What are the two patterned fabrics on the pillows that you used? They look like one of them could be perfect for some curtains I want to make…. Thanks! I love your blog and look forward to your posts!! : )

  12. Megan says:

    Ask your mother and sister to pick you up some no-conflict diamonds while they are in South Africa.

  13. Beautiful! I love those little lamps too!

  14. Veronique says:

    I have been on many blogs but it is something about this one that keeps me lurking n’ lookin’!

    I so love it here.

    Ok the King size bed with the Euros did it for me…. I have a queen and would like a new look!
    Would love to see what will work best in my case.

    I shall be visiting this page more often (since I am so busy, I rarely get to do much of any fun activities)

    oh yeah…the ELEPHANT is a must have…and y ou really and truly have to know about the ELEPHANT! I need one or maybe two….

get inspired with our own home tour


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, […]

round up of budget friendly bar carts

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 […]
