Happy Friday!

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.

Bathroom Progress and a Tile Dilemma

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.

Happy Friday!

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

Happy Friday!

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

A Simple but Special Valentine’s Dinner at Home

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

Happy Friday!

I have said it before and will say it again. Everything Jersey Ice Cream Co. does is magic, and this renovation is no exception.   Framing can make a huge difference in your artwork and this is a beautiful example of framing done right.   Anyone else excited about the opening ceremony of the Olympics tonight? I am a sucker for the Olympics!   In honor of the olympics, can you name all the countries who have hosted the winter olympics in this quiz?   Have you seen “I, Tonya” yet? I am really curious to see the perspective the

Upstairs Bathroom Renovation Plan

One major renovation we are taking on this year is our upstairs bathroom. We hadn’t necessarily planned to take it on this year, but we started dreaming and scheming and one thing led to another and here we are. Before we talk plans, let’s delve into the space as it is now. It really is not terrible and we lived with it for a year and half as it certainly was not at the top of our priority list. However, it really isn’t our style and we are suckers for design and a good project. The space is tiny, with

Highlights From the Nashville Antique and Garden Show

This weekend I took a quick trip to Nashville to visit the Antique and Garden Show. While I mostly went to hear Gil Schafer and Rita Konig speak, the exhibit hall was also packed full of interesting finds and displays. I wanted to share a few photos I snapped on my phone along with some of the highlights from their talk. The Expo Most booths contained antiques, but being an antique and garden show, there were a number of garden displays too. I really loved this ginormous concrete bench. It could feel so cozy in the right backyard. So cottagey!

Happy Friday!

This photo Adam took in Iceland a few summers ago always feels so Wes Anderson to me. We made it to this lighthouse after one of my first attempts driving off road. Well worth the effort.   Speaking of Iceland, I find their pool culture fascinating. Love the examples pictured in this article. I can see how this habit could help kick the winter blues.   I love watching people paint. I could watch this all day. This too.   Any dress lovers out there? Julia Engel of Gal Meets Glam is launching a dress collection, and I’m so excited!

Shopping to Go: Lovely Art

Adam and I spend and inordinate amount of time admiring art online and, when possible, in person. It really does have the ability to make or break a space, and when you find a piece that speaks to you, it can bring such joy every time you glance at it. Art is a personal thing, and I find that even my own art taste evolves over time and with the seasons. It’s much moodier in winter and much brighter and more cheerful in summer. Over the years, Adam and I have improved in our ability to choose pieces that we
