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, […]

Not exactly ideal for entertaining. For the past couple of years we have wanted to build a deck and enjoy the […]


I get so much joy in setting a table. I like to really think of the details when it comes to tablescapes and add on all of the layers. If you are a bit shy when it comes to decorating your home then setting a table is a great way to dip your toes into […]

Thanksgiving Tablecloth Round Up


Fall is in the air and while I don’t enjoy anything pumpkin related when it comes to food I do adore the color and shape!!! I’m not a huge seasonal decorator. I tend to go a bit nuts around Christmas time, but I don’t do a lot of swapping out of items throughout the year. […]

It’s A Colorful Life: Fall Home Tour


I love a good tablescape. I think it’s the inner Southern woman inside of me. Please tell me I’m not the only New Yorker that subscribes to Southern Living magazine and looks up houses in Birmingham, Alabama. I truly think I was meant to live in the South. I love all of it! The tradition, […]

Lilac & Orange Thanksgiving Tablescape


It’s Fall, which means we have been inundated with muted colors like tan, olive green, blush and then some richer colors like wine, marigold, copper and dark orange.

Pumpkin Pie from Rice Krispies!

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.
