When can I move in?

It is not very often I come across a house tour that I love everything. It is usually one room or a small detail that catches my eye. I would not change a thing about this Brooklyn home tour

Brown lacquered cabinets. Sign me up.

Book Club | Absolutely Beautiful Things

If you love design I recommend checking out Anna Spiro's Absolutely Beautiful Things.  It is not just a pretty coffee table book that will gather dust. I thought it was really inspiring and informative. I loved reading Anna's story.  Furbish is the only place in the U.S. carrying the book. I would scoop it up fast, I have a feeling they will not last long.

1 Month

I have pretty much the best excuse ever for a blog hiatus. I was very busy giving birth to a human and trying to keep him alive for the past 6 weeks. Kind of a big deal. Luckily, we have had tons of help. Grandparents who drop everything and friends who keep us fed. We made it to the one month mark ( a little late hitting publish, we are at 7 weeks now)

William Durant Short made his debut 2 weeks early, October 27th at 7:27 p.m. 7 pounds and 1 ounce of pure joy! I have been spending all my free time soaking up every second with the nugget.

Raleigh Yard Sale (This Saturday)

So this is happening... 

This Saturday one of my favorite friends is having a yard sale, if you even want to call it that. It is legit. Allison is a very talented designer with great taste and it looks more like a boutique than a yard sale. I got a few pictures of what to expect.

There is a going to be a little bit of everything! Furniture, lighting, tabletop and clothes.

Saturday, October 18 at 9am

Around Our House

It has been a while since I shared updates happening in our house. I found this old secretary at an estate sale and have had a lot of fun dressing it up. If you are on the hunt for ginger jars, OKL has a great chinoiserie sale going on now! 

 This is my favorite time of year for flowers at the Farmer's Market.  We went last weekend and there was a new flower vendor that was set up in the parking lot.  They had the largest bouquets I have ever seen. 

 I love the laid back look of this lumbar pillow from Furbish.  I have completely accepted that everything in my house is going to be blue and white. 
I am slowly working on a nursery. Blue toile and Robert Allen gingham are the sweetest pair.

Life According to my Phone

I have hit the 30 week mark and am doing my best to try and document more of my pregnancy.  It just hit me I only have a short time left. I want to remember this. I never thought I would take pictures of my growing belly, but now I am starting to really wish I would have embraced it more.

My friends sent out the most adorable shower invites I have ever seen.
My pregnancy uniform. I have lived in this Storq dress.

We are finishing up a  couple of houses at work. This one is going on the market in the next month or so. I really want to just put carrara marble everywhere. It is becoming a problem.
I am obsessed with penny rounds. Ignore my swollen feet.

I still have this 17''  federal mirror for sale. Email me if you are interested

My master bedroom is getting a makeover...

We got a king bed. My life is complete. I ended up ordering linens from Zara Home. I am still on the hunt for a headboard. Recommendations for upholstered headboards are welcome.
Did you know we have a Waterworks distributor in Raleigh? Bird Hardware has an awesome selection of plumbing and hardware.

Tilton Fenwick for Target

It is a little bit country and a little bit granny. The price point is incredible. All in all, this is probably the most exciting Target collab I have seen. If you are not familiar with the duo that is Tilton Fenwick, I  highly suggest you check out their portfolio.
We are in the process of redoing our master so I am particularly infatuated with the headboards. Doug vetoed pink floral already.

If crazy patterns are not your thing, they have some great solid options

I have some major chair obsessions.

I have a thing for federal mirrors. I think it is the Southerner in me. They are classic and versitile. I think they look best over a mantle, where they can get the attention they deserve.
They can take your book shelf the next level.
They are perfect for a formal dining room.
I love them so much I have two. They can add a traditional element to a modern gallery wall.

The actual mirror is 17" (great size)
It does have some wear on it- THIS THING IS NO SPRING CHICKEN.
Email me at if you are interested, no holds.
