Dining Room Wallpaper

I am thinking this could look really sexy in my dungeon of a dining room.
You think Doug would be jumping for joy that it is not neon pink...

He is scared of the black. Are you?

Happy Thoughts

Turns out what I thought were allergies are actually sinusitis and a inner ear infection. I don't know if anyone has ever had an inner ear infection but it is HELL. The only thing that was worse was two nurses holding me down to  give me a shot in the tush.   

I just need to think happy thoughts. Wallpaper, powder rooms, and monogrammed linens.

Weekend Recap:Wedding Shower

 It is currently 3:28 in the afternoon and I have just recently sat up in bed.  Thank goodness for Sex and the City reruns on E! I am hoping it is just allergies but am afraid it might be my yearly case of strep.

This weekend was so much fun. I had my first wedding shower.  The fact that the weather dropped by 40 degrees sent me into a wardrobe panic. Lucky for me, my friend Hyla was sweet enough to let me borrow a fabulous necklace.  She is a local jewelry designer. You can see all of her amazing designs at

My grandmother surprised me by coming to Raleigh.

House Update

Our house has been neglected due to wedding planning. 
I found some of David Hicks La Fiorentina at The Designer's Attic I bought a couple of yards to cover the cornice Doug made. It has been mounted on our wall for months with no fabric. 

New pillows. Thanks to danielle oakey interiors and Simple Sage and was able to complete my pillow collection-- for now. 

We moved into our house exactly a year ago. I almost forgot that the sweet 90 year old woman before us had a green thumb. Flowers are popping up everywhere. I am sure I will find some way to murder them in the near future. 


Do not forget to enter the CSN Giveaway! I will pick a random winner tomorrow.

Kirribilla: Party Dress

I have had a really hard time finding a dress for my rehearsal dinner and upcoming showers. Kirribilla has dresses that are unique and timeless. I am obsessed with the dramatic necklines and the simple, classic sillouettes.

Dining Room Makeover: Wallpaper

After the wedding I am wallpapering the ish out of our house.
I started the search today and I feel like I may be a grandma. I am totally attracted to anything
that looks like it is 100 years old. First stop was Thibaut...

Any recommendations for wallpaper sources is greatly appreciated.

Shopbop Wedding

Shopbop has jumped on the wedding bandwagon following in the footsteps of Anthropologie and J Crew.

I am loving the mix matched bridesmaids dresses.
