Happy Friday!

  Have any of you been listening to Local Milk’s podcast, Raw Milk? There are three episodes out and we can’t wait to listen!   We recently met Jenny Anderson on our vacation and found out all the ways she is super talented! This photo she just posted from the Tony’s of Anna Wintour is gold!   This is one of our new favorite lighting companies and we will take one of each please.   I have another Perfect Pairing post coming up on Monday! Remember when we pulled together a classic, monochromatic town home?   We are digging these painted

My Favorite Summer Cookbooks

It’s no secret that I’m a cookbook fanatic. I could read cookbooks from cover to cover for hours and be my most content self. For most of the year but especially in the summer, much of what I decide to cook is based off of what’s available at the farmers market, in our CSA, or, (hopefully) this year, our garden. While fresh produce doesn’t always need a lot of intervention to make it great, it’s nice to have options to mix it up or to help you navigate less familiar vegetables. My favorite cookbooks in the summer are those that

Happy Friday!

  My favorite thing to keep handy in my purse this time of year.   Great post on four methods for distressing wood. What’s you’re favorite look?   LOVE the textures in this laundry room!!   Speaking of laundry rooms, I love the layout and functionality in the recently revealed laundry room of Mandy Moore design by Sarah Sherman Samuel.   Love these new silkscreen geo floral prints from Lulie Wallace.  This one may be my favorite.   My new favorite hand soap. Love that you can buy refillable pouches.   Anyone else excited for the release of this movie this

The Importance of Taking Breaks

Hey there! It’s been a while. The past few months have been so busy for us, and while we didn’t intend to take such a long hiatus here on the site, it happened and we just decided to roll with it. Once we were able to let go of some of the guilt of pulling back here and in a few other areas of life for a bit, we realized how needed and enjoyable small breaks like this can be. There are those times in life when you feel like you’re being pulled in a million directions and that it’s

Happy Friday!

In love with this bedroom Mark Sikes designed for the 2018 Kips Bay Show House. Those details, though.   Need this book!   Have you taken the Enneagram test? I love personality tests, and while there is a more comprehensive version you can pay for, Adam and I took this abridged version recently and thought the results were pretty spot on. For the record, he’s a 1 and I’m a 2.   Are you planning on watching the upcoming royal wedding? I found this slideshow of iconic royal wedding gowns over the years to be very interesting. It’s hard to

Happy Friday!

Love when guys are included in things like this.   Fun botanical prints that could help nicely fill out an empty wall.   Got my first GMG dresses in the mail this week, and they are lovely! This one may be my favorite!   Love this light. It’s especially beautiful in this space.   Strawberry season is almost here, and every year I commit to making a strawberry pie but wind up eating too many before I have enough to make them into anything more. Maybe this year is the year to try out this simple recipe. Then again, they’re

A Kitchen and Breakfast Nook With Open Door Architecture

We recently styled and shot a beautiful kitchen and breakfast nook designed by local architects, Sean and Sara Martin of Open Door Architecture. The firm’s incredible work coupled with their focus on bringing new life to old homes is right up our alley, making for an exciting shoot. Did I mention that they were also the architects behind the 2017 HGTV Urban Oasis? All that said, we fell in love with the space the first time we saw it and were thrilled to style and photograph such a beautiful space. After seeing the space, I think some of you may

Happy Friday!

Today is the day! The Gal Meets Glam dress collection is finally being released. I’m so excited for it and so excited for the incredibly talented Julia!   Um, yes to this potato recipe!   Do you follow miniature artist Lorraine Loots? She’s amazing. How mind blowing is this kangaroo?   We try to support our local farmers as much as possible, and a CSA is a great way to do that. If you’ve never heard of it or of thinking of trying one, this is a great read.   For those of you in the Knoxville area, this CSA

Happy Friday!

Interesting read. “That’s all.”   I feel like I keep seeing this cookbook pop up everywhere. Looks like a good one to add to a cookbook library.   Affordable, compact outdoor dining set. The bistro set is nice too.   I’ve really loved the chance to work outside in the yard over the past few weeks, but my eczema doesn’t seem to love it quite the same. Interested in trying this from First Aid Beauty.   When I haven’t been outside, I’ve been obsessively researching examples of cottage gardens to aspire to and mostly saving them here.   Also, if

Our Cheerful Spring Table

I’ve mentioned before that I absolutely adore Easter decorations. There’s just something so fun and cheerful about them, and I think a big part of what makes them so appealing is that they are such a representation of spring. Don’t get me wrong, I love decorating for Christmas, but that gap between December and spring can really start to feel grey. When it’s finally time to start pulling out the cheerful hues and florals, I could not be more ready! This year, we were busy most of Easter weekend tiling our bathroom and working in the yard, but we quickly
