Bedroom Bliss

These are all from a Pinterest board I like (here). It's not a huge board and leans toward bohemian (not for everyone I know), but I love these.

Decidedly Dramatic Rooms

Thursday, July 20, 2017


This week I've been busy cramming in my son's supervised driving hours so that he can take the test and get licensed before school starts. It's actually kind of fun because it's a lot of time in the car with him, which is where he communicates best, presumably because there are no phones or other things more interesting than talking to mom to distract him. But it is stressful indeed. I can't believe my first baby will be off driving himself to school soon.

And in other big news, I learned yesterday that the TJX Corp. (Home Goods, Marshall's, TJMaxx....) concept store called HomeSense, previously only in Canada and Europe, is opening it's first United States store in Framingham, MA -- only 45 minutes from me!! It looks like it is going to be a higher end Home Goods, with departments dedicated to lighting, art, rugs, and furniture. I will certainly be there opening day (Aug. 17) and will keep you posted!

Onto the rooms, most of which are dark and dramatic, but not at all dreary. I'm liking these a lot lately....

30 Stylish Sunrooms

Monday, July 17, 2017


I think the real trick to sunrooms is to edit, edit, edit. More so than in any other room, because you really don't want the design to compete with the view. So the best ones, in my opinion, are the ones that use less color and pattern and rely on simple, clean shapes so that nature can really be the star of the show. What do you think? Do you agree?

Home Office Changes: Painted Bookcases, Reveal

Monday, July 10, 2017


This actually took me almost a year to do once I chose the paint, so we lived with it with testers everywhere while I tried to find the time to do it. Of course I could scrape up some time, but it's a priority thing. Would I rather paint on a gorgeous Sunday, or be outside? Yesterday I couldn't stand it anymore so I chose paint.

I used Ben Moore Silver Gray (2131-60) and painted with a brush. What. A. Pain. But I do like how it came out.
