This trunk is not only beautiful and patina-ed to perfection, it holds a lifetime worth of treasures inside. I’ve owned it since childhood, thanks to my talented mother with impeccable taste, but more about that later.
Happy July 4th!
Today was the epitome of a dreamy summer day. Greg and I went kayaking down the river, fished, ate lunch on the water and enjoyed our time together in the great outdoors. We came home and saw that the black caps were ready (I’ve been checking them all week.) We have finally gotten ahead of the birds this year. (Cheers all around)
I thought it was about time I jump back onto the blog and say hi to you guys! Here’s a little update of what we’ve been up to lately–and if you’re not following me on instagram, you should because I post daily!
Decorate to please yourself
I’m feeling so inspired! Which is a big deal, because I’ve been in a bit of a rut lately. (Forgive me for my lack of posts!) Anyway, I’ve been feasting my eyes on so many gorgeous spaces lately. From the iconic rooms by Bunny Williams and Eddie Ross to the seriously-awesome case studies on One King’s Lane and Apartment Therapy–I’ve been so ramped up to liven up our home. Time to inject some life and personality! The theme (or mantra) for me at the moment actually came from Bunny Williams: “If you love it, it goes”. Our homes are for us to enjoy, truly.
Spring is finally here, and I don’t know about you, but I love this time of year for getting inspired and starting new projects! We hear about spring cleaning all the time–and that’s a wonderful place to start (especially if you’re on the road to Minimalism, like me). But after that, let the real fun begin! What is your home lacking? Do you want to up your wow-factor this year? Here are 10 of my favorite home DIYs from all over the blogosphere. I have faith in you–you can totally tackle any of these. Let me know your favorite project in the comments at the end!
