Decor Trends 2017: Navy

TGIF, friends!  This week has kicked my hiney, with the time change and my work load!  I'm ready to SLEEP IN a bit this weekend if I can.  We're trekking through the repainting process of my home and still looking at some exterior refreshes, but we're slowly making progress.  #goals Today I wanted to share another decor trend in 2017 and this one is a favorite.  Yes, it's also a holdover from 2016, but I think it will continue to have legs for … [Read more...]

Monday Fun Day

Today I wanted to share something soooo fun that I came across over the weekend!  Lonny Magazine posted a fun photo slide show of the worst decor … [Read more...]

Hallway Laundry Room Inspiration

Well, we're immersed in getting our little laundry room refreshed... amazing what some fresh paint will do, right?  If you've been following on Instagram you've seen some progress!

I would … [Read more...]

What’s In for 2017: Acrylic Furniture

Hey there!  My heat has been restored and of course it's been 70 degrees the last couple of days... but we're due for another cold blast, so at least I'll be in comfort this time around. :)  I thought it would be fun over the next few weeks to share some of the trends in decor I'm seeing online and in print... some of these might be holdovers from 2016, but they're still going strong in interiors, so it's not too late to jump on the … [Read more...]

HGTV Dream Home 2017 {Eye Candy}

Happy Monday, friends!  I hope you had a great weekend.  I had a pretty low-key one just taking care of Legacy loose ends and plodding through my purging.  I was battling a low blood pressure so I didn't get TONS done, but progress is progress, right? Today I thought it would be fun to share a few of my favorite elements from this year's HGTV Dream Home.  This year they brought Brian Patrick Flynn on board and the design felt very different … [Read more...]

Merry Christmas, Friends!

I had every intention of posting all kinds of things Christmas and holiday this month, but life and Legacy got in the way.  As it is, I am skidding into this weekend with my "to do's" barely finished but determined to slow it down and soak in the real reason for the season with my peeps.  So since I shortchanged you on Christmas posts, I decided to pop in today with heartfelt Christmas wishes and some snapshots of Christmas around my … [Read more...]

Dining Room Update

Monday, already?  I actually had a pretty low key weekend and am feeling on the downside of my head cold so fingers crossed that it's behind me!  I did get a few things done around the house and that's always a good feeling. :) One of the things on my list was to put my dining room "back together."  I may not have shared that last May my parents loaded up our family piano and drove it to Austin for my older sister, who is experiencing a … [Read more...]
