I know this is not new and that the house has already been given away, but I LOVE rewatching these episodes of Home Love Network: Win This House, especially the dinging room renovation. Anyone else love that clean feeling you have after taking a shower? I can’t help but feel that this shower would make that feeling even better. My spring break was last week and I spent any free time (which was surprisingly little) looking at Marie Flanigan’s interior design work. I couldn’t get over all the detail and her eye to create captivating and timeless spaces.
Spring is finally here, ya’ll!!!! For me there is no bigger anticipation all year than that transition from drab winter to life-filled spring, and while there may be a chance of snow here in Knoxville tomorrow, I can still rest easy knowing that spring is officially here and that cold days will soon be behind us. At the start of each season we like to pull together a list of some of our favorite essentials for that season. Summer was filled with swimsuits and water bottles to encourage hydration, and fall was all about warm, cozy hues and goods.
We love a good Nancy Myers movie set. We recently watched It’s Complicated, and it had us looking up all things Nancy Myers. Did anyone else see this pie of Oprah for Pi Day!? Mind Blown! I have seen some gorgeous home exteriors popping up on Instagram recently. For starters, this, this, and this. One of the best lip sync battle performances ever! If you are looking for the perfect candle for spring, this is our absolute favorite. Smells just like fresh laundry! We have seriously laughed at this video for the last three days.
The Oscars last weekend has us wanting to watch this documentary that won the Oscar for the best documentary. Got this book in the mail and have been too busy to sit down with it yet. I did take a quick peek though, and it’s going to be good! Eyeing this book and plan to preorder. For those of you who regularly follow our Friday links, you know we love her work. We have binged watch the whole season of Queer Eye and Jonathan has us dying laughing every episode. Though I was loving the warm
So let’s talk about our outdoor space for a second. We’ve shared a lot of our interior, but our exterior also takes up a chunk of our time and is a space we’ve been giving more thought and energy to since wrapping up some projects inside. We were very fortunate to find a house with beautiful, well-established landscaping, but since the house had been vacant for over a year, it was also a little out of control. Time mixed with an endless number of beds and some very invasive ivy is not a good recipe! Slowly but surely we’ve been
Rejuventation is having a 20% off kitchen and dining sale if you’ve had your eye on anything. Yas Queen!! Just came across this site that makes shopping for socially/eco conscious clothing a bit easier. Loving this photography account. Especially the energy in the beach shots on the Italian coast. I know we’re a little late to the game, but Adam and I just watched The Big Sick and LOVED it. Planning on watching it again this weekend! Adam got me this ring a few years ago, and I get questions about it all the time.
As we’ve mentioned, our current major design project is our upstairs guest bathroom, and we wanted to share some updates. We spent two weekends ago knocking out all the walls, removing tile, and taking out fixtures. From the labels we found on things and the general style, it looks like the bathroom was redesigned some time in the 90’s. Much of this redesign seems to have been the floor and wall tile, medicine cabinet, and fixtures. The walls around the tub had been insulated and replaced with drywall, but everything else was plaster that was wallpapered over at some point.
This coral sweatshirt just released from Everlane is perfect for breaking in spring hues while still dressing for that lingering chill in the air. I loved the blue, but it sold out fast! The Everygirl just announced the upcoming launch of The Everymom, and if it’s anything like The Everygirl, I know it will be fabulous! Lookout for the official launch in April. I’m a huge fan of baths and fancy bath salts, but they can be pricey! I love this post on how to make affordable, drugstore bath salts more luxurious. Since it’s been 80 degrees
Feeling helpless about the recent violence in yet another school? Visit this site and see how you can ACT! On a lighter note, we were exposed to Peacock Alley bedding at the Nashville Antique Home and Garden Show and are in love. We especially love these scalloped sheets. A bit obsessed with this new (to me) Instagram account. Always love finding designers who are experts at mixing and matching in a maximal, collected way. Speaking of mixing and matching, this space feels so collected and lived in in the very best way. Loving the Modern Victorian
Most years, Adam and I would rather avoid the long restaurant lines and Valentine’s hullabaloo and, instead, spend the evening at home. That doesn’t mean it can’t be special or that it has to take that much extra work. In case you’ve waited until the last minute (like I have) to give your Valentine’s Day plans some thought, I wanted to share a favorite menu for two and some ideas on how to add a little pizazz to set it apart from your typical dinner at home. Valentine’s Menu In addition to sticking to simple recipes, another easy way to
