Scenes from my weekend…

    Hi Camilla! It looks like you had a great weekend! House shopping is always fun, even if you aren’t moving right this second. I have a quick question for you: Could you tell me a bit about your curtains in the bedroom? I am planning on sewing some curtains for my living room and I really like the style of yours. Are they pinch pleated or just a single pleat?

      They are back panel curtains from Ikea. You can see them here. I love them and use them all the time with clients and in my own home. I just had them hemmed by my workroom and then had a 3″ wide border sewn on. A custom look for a fraction of the price. Love them!

    I just stumbled upon your blog today- I currently live in the Northport/centerport, NY area and love it. I dont know your back story or why you are moving. But i think you will really love it! its a very special town unlike any other on Long island. Best of luck!

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 […]
