lately

Stopping by with a few updates from my life as of late…

Last week, I helped a client install a gallery wall. She has an amazing art collection, and it was a treat to arrange about thirty pieces throughout her home. Most were included in this large wall in the living room, with a few others elsewhere in the house. I wish I could have captured a picture of this entire wall for you! It's quite a sight.

I've also been out and about a lot over the past few weeks - antiquing, thrifting and sourcing at various stores. A few goodies that caught my eye...

And lastly, we've spent a few evenings with friends and my sister (my only immediate family who's local), which I've really appreciated. I took an unintentional break from email for just over a day (I know - not the longest break!) and was reminded that I need to do this more often! Running my business, I tend to work a lot of weekends and it's easy to get sucked into this habit. The way I'm wired, I definitely need breaks and am determined to do better with this! Hope you're well and enjoying these last bits of summer!

client family room inspiration

If you follow me on instagram, you may have caught this design board I posted a few days ago. It's strictly depicting the inspiration stage of this project, but I love the direction we're headed. It's definitely an eclectic blend, which you know I love. It's mid-century meets traditional... with some surprises thrown in. Can't wait to see this one evolve, and come to life!

I have a website!



If you've been around here for any length of time, you've heard me mention my in-the-works website. My dad very graciously agreed to build it for me (a project that was completely daunting to me!), and after many, many hours of hard work, it's in a place where I'm able to share, so please do stop by and check it out! My goal is that we'll be building it out as time goes on (more portfolio photos, tightening up some technical elements, etc.), but for now, I'm definitely thrilled to have a website dedicated to my business. Next steps include figuring out the best way to link my blog to the site and other technical considerations… exciting stuff. ;) (I'm not particularly gifted or patient when it comes to these types of details, which is why I'm so relieved to have my dad to help!)

ah, mexico


We love Mexico. The colors, the culture, beaches, heat, laid-back vibe, sun and the markets full of fun treasures! It's on my mind like crazy as we are headed there next month (to celebrate our ten-year wedding anniversary!!) and are both so excited. And you're not going to believe this (we hardly can)... the trip was gifted to us, generously and extravagantly!! We're headed to a few spots in Mexico that are new to us and can hardly wait to explore, take it all in, and relax! So, as my mind is filled with memories from past trips and visions of what's coming up, I thought I would share some favorite moments from our trip to Cancun and Merida in 2012.
