    Love that rug- I just ordered the same one for my living room. I just wrote about it here- http://theglitterfiles1.blogspot.com/2013/01/look-what-arrived.html

    Are you in Nassau County, LI? If so, I just moved to the area about 5 months ago and recognized The Witches Brew as a coffee shop that I used to go to when I visited my Grandma who lived in Nassau County when I was growing up. I’m a big fan of your blog BTW!

      Hi Deirdre,

      I am in Nassau County! Witches Brew is a couple of towns over. We so need to meet up!


      • Deirdre says:

        I would love to. I have a 22-month-old son and a 3-year-old daughter so maybe a playdate of sorts? I’m involved with a few meetup Mommy groups in the area and we go to fun places like Le Play Cafe, Barnes & Noble story time and even a few outings just for the moms. I adore your style, so when we get the chance to meet I may have to pick your brain! Feel free to email me anytime.

  4. Wow! Witches Brew! I spent many nights there in high school and college breaks lamenting over boyfriends/design school….one of many great memories growing up on LI. Now I’m 40 miles north in Westchester but I enjoy when you share your spots around LI- makes me a little homesick:) even though I visit often!!
    Thanks for sharing!

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 […]
