For nearly a decade, one of my go-to prop sources for luxurious textiles and classic furnishings has been Serena & Lily. I have been incorporating their gorgeous decor into my styling work for years to achieve the perfect balance of relaxed and refined. I particularly love their beautiful bedding that makes rooms feel inviting and layered and their expertly crafted neutrals that blend well with any interior space. I've been so happy to work with them over the years because I truly love the quality of their products.
I spent Valentine’s Day flying home from New York after a week long styling gig with Country Living. Upon arrival, I was coming down the escalator, and just like a scene from a movie, my husband was there to greet me with a huge bouquet of roses and a heart shaped balloon. The only problem was…I didn’t even notice him. Can you believe it?! I completely missed my sappy romantic movie moment and he had to follow me to baggage claim in order to “surprise” me! Life is like that sometimes, we're rushing through our day and miss seeing the beauty right before our eyes. Thank goodness, there’s also that age old saying - better late than never.
Storage doesn’t have to be strictly utilitarian, and it certainly doesn’t need to be unattractive - there are so many beautiful organizational items on the market right now! If you’re like me, January is a big month for getting my home in check, and I need it to be both functional and chic. Here I’ve gathered a few of the prettiest storage solutions to help you corral the clutter in style!
For many, this week marks the official start of back-to-school and with that, I thought it the perfect time to talk books. Not the required reading lists that we muddled through in school, but ones that peek your interest and keep your mind occupied during the day...pondering when you'll have time to dive back into the pages. I always have multiple books on my nightstand (and iPad) with slips of paper bookmarks tucked in, awaiting my return. I crave variety. Sometimes I want to hunker down with a warm blanket and read recipes like they were poetry. Other times, I have a quest for knowledge. Those thought provoking novels and biographies that will have me contemplating life and calling me to action. Here's a review of a few of my current reads. I'd love to get some of your recommendations in the comments! There's always room for more...
Oh, Pinterest. Before you, I used to tear out a thousand pages from magazines and file them away in heavy binders, not now...you've made life so much simpler. And although I don't pin thousands upon thousands of images, I am able to see my style more clearly defined through my curated boards and pins. Today, I thought I'd share a few of my favorite pinners. The ones I find myself re-pinning from again and again.
