back to blogging

May 31, 2011

Sorry  I missed you all last week I needed a little blogging break to smell the roses, play with my girls and catch up on stuff. Hope you all had a wonderful weekend and got a little time in the sun. It was a bit chilly for swimming here but I ran the girls to the pool yesterday afternoon and they were popsicle by the time we left. I am really excited for summer to start I’m just hoping it warms up!!

Wishing I were on a plane to spend a few days at this amazing hotel in New York.

rainy randomness

May 20, 2011

Feeling a bit like we live in Seattle here it’s been raining so much lately. Really wishing I had purchased those cute wellies from Nordstrom Rack a few months ago. They were only $40 but I thought it never rains here why would I need those?  LOL. Guess I was wrong. I am liking what it is going to do to my brown lawn. Hope you have a wonderful weekend and enjoy a random collection of beautiful spaces!


Dream House

May 19, 2011

First of all I’m dying to paint or whitewash my brick house. I think the look of a white house is so crisp and clean. This house designed by Mia James in Baton Rouge is right up there as a total dream house of mine. I love how the blue is so perfectly threaded throughout the house. Sooooo Pretty!

before and after

May 18, 2011

Love this guest room before and after from HB. It’s in Bee Cottage that House Beautiful’s contributing editor, Frances Schultz has been renovating and documenting in the magazine. I just think it is so charming and a true testament to having fun with your guest room decor. I would love to spend a few days in this room. It’s bright, vibrant and totally charming!
