Friday Crush


Did I tell you #3 is a boy? I think I left out that detail...but he is! And I love this darling space for a sweet boy. You know I'm into a good alcove bed and the shades of brown with little instances of color are just adorable. And quite practical with so much storage.

Was hoping for a weekend at the pool, but it looks like rain will be our companion here in Virginia. Hope the sun is shining where you are. See you next week!

Lowcountry Oysters

I'm back from my blissful vacation - our annual trip to the beach where I always reconnect with the beauty of South Carolina's Lowcountry.

On that subject, I've had my eye on the work of artist Chelsea Goer for a while. She is part of the Charleston Artist Collective with roots in South Carolina and a childhood often spent on Pawley's Island, close to where we vacation.

The subject of her Collective paintings is mainly oysters. So simple, yet Chelsea gives them such dimension and range. From abstract and colorful, to murky and real, I can't get enough of her take on these shells.

Beautiful, am I right? Check out all of her pieces for the Collective here...

Friday Crush

High ceiling goals. LOOK at this art by Cathy Lancaster hanging against Quadrille wallpaper at the store Blue Print in Dallas. Layer in the furniture arrangement, colors, and bold large-scale pattern and the whole look just fills up your eyeballs. In the best way possible.

Thought I would leave you with an especially good Crush, as I will be away from the blog next week. Hope your mid-July is going swimmingly and I will see you back here week after next.

Waverly Fabrics

Every so often, I dip into a fabric search for the brand Waverly. Always affordable, I find that it usually delights me with some winners.

This time, blue and white fabrics caught my eye.

Fleuretta Bluejay - On my immediate short list to cover a pair of (imaginary) club chairs. Has a bit of a Pyne Hollyhock flair.

Monkey Jars Tide Pool - Singerie at its best. I will say, monkeys are not my jam, but I get it if they are yours. And these are adorable. Not to mention the blue/white porcelain. Are you a Chinoiserie lover with a breakfast nook that could use a window valence or some pillows? Here you go.

Williamsburg Charlotte Twill Bluebell - Really timeless. If you look closely at the petals, the fabric has a lovely blue/white stripe pattern that I would tease out elsewhere.

Any favorites?

Well, HELLO. Citrus Garden by Schumacher is on these walls of perfection. Black + White + Pattern will eternally be a favorite. And that little garden stool is winning on all levels (I have a source for you here). Also, black toilet seats should be on your list. I actually have one forever in my Amazon cart that I have yet to purchase (it's been years) but I need to get on that per this photo.

We have a pretty packed summer weekend ahead...hope you are doing something fun. See you next week!

Paint It All

I am squirreling away ideas for a future project on Pinterest and as I was taking inventory the other day, it became obvious that I'm obsessed with the idea of painting an entire space - wall, cabinetry, moulding - the same color.

It always strikes me a so clever and chic...and easy.

Every space here feels high-end but if you break down the elements, they're all pretty simple. But what puts each space over the edge is the bold use of one color. I've written about this before, but I thought it was time for another reminder - paint it all, friends.
