I designed this poster for a local house concert, but to protect the privacy of the hosts, I’ve edited the details for the purposes of posting here. This was a fun one, though. The project and the concert.

Bedroom in Carolina Gull by Tali Roth

I have consistently envisioned my lake house bedroom with a bright, beachy color palette. AND THEN I saw this bedroom by Homepolish designer, Tali Roth, painted in Benjamin Moore’s Carolina Gull, and now I am reconsidering everything. Dangit.

Navy Blue and White Starry Night Wedding

Posted 25 February 2018 at 11:31 PM | Comments (0)

I love the idea of a starry night themed wedding. In late winter, the wedding venue could be decked out in navy blue with sparkling white, with stars up above and stars in your eyes. Keep it elegant by not overdoing the amount of stars and sparkles in the décor, and stars should be kept small.

Favorites from SAG Awards 2018

Fashion from this year’s Screen Actors Guild Awards was very exciting. My top three were easy styles—all long and draping, feminine and simple. Coincidentally, all three women also wore their hair down with a deep side-part, though that didn’t influence my choices.

Reese Witherspoon in Zac Posen, Brie Larson in Gucci (my favorite look), and Mandy Moore in Ralph Lauren. You killed it, ladies.

The husband was back on 1950s vinyl-floor duty today and did a GREAT job. The house is so pretty when it’s stripped down.

My husband spent the day chipping away, literally, at the kitchen floor and sent me these photos. From this:

Remember Baby Ellery? Her mother loved the contemporary, shabby chic vibe of her firstborn’s birth announcement, so we came up with a complementary design for her second born.
