Treat yo self: Heirloom Modern

  1. Sounds like a great read. Thanks for the intro.

    You’re so right – the cover is gorgeous! I might need a copy after reading your thoughts on the book. I really do love it when homes are decorated with pieces that have such a special meaning. I always think of you whenever I see anything with elephants – so surely your little man will too. 😉 My kids are always pointing out horse stuff to me – makes my heart happy that they know what I love.

    Really beautiful but I am hoping those tusks on the mantel are not real.

  5. What beautiful photos! I am such a fan of decorating with pieces that truly have a story and mean something! Makes me feel guilty for all my Target purchases! Thanks for the book recommendation!

  6. Have you read The Things That Matter by Nate Berkus? I reviewed it on my blog last week (I got to meet him last year in New York), and it reminds me of what you’re talking about here. He features friends with great, meaningful spaces and highlights their stories. It was so great and touching. If you liked this one, I think you’d love it.

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 […]
