A Favorite Design Style: Updated Traditional

Wednesday, January 18, 2017


This has long been my favorite design style - transitional, or updated traditional. I try not to get bogged down in rules or names of styles, but this pretty much covers the look I usually try to achieve. What do you all think?

Not Even Close....

Wednesday, January 11, 2017


There is a new color of the year for 2017 (Greenery), which I love, but it doesn't mean for a second that I'm over Blush Pink. I actually feel like I'm just getting started with it. It works with literally every other color, and in every application. Can you imagine it in an industrial loft? If not, read on - you might be surprised.


Too Good to Miss

Tuesday, January 10, 2017

Because this is primarily a decorating blog, I try not to post too much about unrelated things. But you guys know I work closely with Anthropologie, so I wanted to let you know about this sale. It is one of the biggest ever, with about 1000 items marked down, AND you take an extra 40% off the lowest price.

So, this first dress, for example, was originally $298. Now it is $24. That is 92% - NINETY-TWO PERCENT (!) - off, and they have a size 8... See, too good to miss.


Here are some of my favorites at an extra 40% off for house and home, and then clothing, shoes, and accessories after the jump (read more ....)



What I Love Wednesday: Spacious Foyers and Entryways


Who doesn't love a large and decorated foyer? I don't have a good foyer in this house - my front door almost literally opens into the bottom stair going up - so it makes it even more fun for me to imagine blowing out the front porch to make a foyer like one of these. 

Wait until you see the one with the umbrellas below. What do you think?

Winter White Room Favorites

Sunday, January 8, 2017


Is there anything prettier than winter white? We got 18" of snow here yesterday, and the crisp clean winter wonderland is simply gorgeous. It made me think to post some of my favorite white(ish) rooms. I like the entirely neutral palettes, but I really love when there is a generous pop of color. Enjoy, and if you're in the northeast near this storm, I wish you no back pain after the big dig out today...
