Wallpaper Files: Clarence House 'The Vase'

Clarence House 'The Vase' is an instant statement that can stand the test of time. How would you ever choose a color? I am leaning towards the brown or tan.

Feeling Inspired

One of my favorite wallpapers of all time. It comes in so many insane color ways.
I commissioned a painting with Sally for my 30th birthday that was inspired by the colors in this piece. 
The smallest splash of this iconic fabric can change an entire room. 
Mahogany Antique Pieces
I have been SLOWLY(really slowly) buying a few good antique pieces that should last a lifetime. 

I have visions of a lacquered library.

House for Sale in North Hills

It is a bittersweet day. We have been house hunting for the better part of a year. We even listed our house last year after we found a house. The house ended up falling through and we decided that we would stay put with a baby on the way. I feel like you never fully appreciate your house until it is time to move on. I am feeling a little sad as we get it ready to list again. 

We plan on listing the house next week.  If you have any friends who are in the market please pass this along. We will consider offers prior to listing.  My email is jessicaepley@gmail.com.

Easter Weekend

These pictures crack me up. It pretty much depicts every holiday with a baby. You start with a happy baby in a perfect little outfit. 


If you are lucky you get one good family photo before the rapid deterioration begins. 




I totally underestimated the meltdowns that would ensure. Clearly, he was not impressed.

Too many missed naps and uncomfortable clothing. 

 Luckily, all ended well.
Hope everyone had a wonderful Easter weekend.

Wallpaper Files: Waverly Lightfoot Mural

It is no secret I have an obsession with chinoiserie wallpaper. It gives me my fix for color without feeling trendy. I remember the first time I saw Kate Townsend's colorful bathroom in Lonny. It was 2010. I had just discovered blogs and was in the process of buying my first house. I still cared what my husband thought about decorating and knew this girly paper would not make it into my house anytime soon. 

Fast forward to present day. We have been in our house for 5 years and this paper has stood the test of time with me. As far as Doug goes, he has grown wise in his old age and let me decorate however I want. I don't tell him how to fish. 


I finally am the proud owner of a mural. The mural looks nothing like the Waverly website. It is quite stunning in person. I cannot wait to get it on a wall and see it in all of its glory. 

This mural is discontinued. I purchased what seems to be the last of the stock. I have a couple extra left if anyone is interested. It is 15 ft. long and would look stunning in a powder room or bedroom. Email me at jessicaepley@gmail.com.

March Style Guide


I have been coveting an original piece from NGS for since I discovered Kristin on Instagram. The colors and shapes draw me in every time. They even offer some affordable minis for the new collector. 

Opal Everything
I have had an obsession with opals for as long as I can remember. My mom had a dainty one I would wear all the time when I was little. Will's birthstone happens to be an opal. Lucky me him. My favorite sources are Mociun and Wwake

The Perfect Nude Sandal 
I am on the hunt for the perfect pair of strappy nude sandals. A classic staple to get me through wedding season.




J Crew New Arrivals
I am loving the nude colors with pops of Tidewater blue.
