Green Thumb: Spring Bloomers

We didn’t move into our house until last July so that meant I missed all of our spring bloomers last year. It has been amazing to watch things come to life this spring. Above are some of the things that have bloomed so far. I think it is helpful to take note of when things bloom… read more

Dreaming of Summer: The Perfect Pool House

Call me crazy – but the warm balmy weather we experienced in CT this past weekend had me feeling like spring is just around the corner. Spring means two things to me – lots of gorgeous greens sprouting up everywhere and time to open the pool. I recently saw this pool house in the Buckhead… read more

PSA: Snow!

We interrupt our regular programming to bring you a public service announcement about snow removal! Here in the Northeast we were hit with another lovely storm. 3-4 inches so far and it’s still trickling down… My mother-in-law (the greenest thumb I know!) is snowed in at our place and this morning we were discussing how… read more

House Progress: Before and Afters

It’s been so fun watching the house be transformed. It’s a slow and methodical process, but I kind of like the pace because it means we aren’t rushing and making mistakes. I honestly love every paint color, fabric, and decorative placement we’ve chosen so far. I give full credit to the talented ladies of Henry &… read more

Inspiration: From Hotel to Home

With that in mind it’s not often that I feel inspired by hotel decor when working on my own home. Hotel interior design is usually less colorful and less layered than what I envision doing in our… read more

House Update: The Playroom

Since we moved in in July we have been chipping away at small projects. We have a few rooms that are 50% finished but nothing that is ready for a true “before and after” here on the blog. Ironically the only room that is ready for its debut is the playroom. The walls still need… read more

Interior Design: Henry & Co. Design

When we bought our home I was giddy over her “great bones”. This was a house that (thankfully) would need no structural work. That being said we knew right away it would need a complete facelift on the interior design front. As I have mentioned before, interior design is not my passion or talent. I am… read more

Home: The Well Appointed House

These days I have home furnishings on the brain… My talented friend Melissa Hawks has run a super successful blog and retail site called The Well Appointed House for 15 years and recently decided to open a storefront for her brand that sells beautiful baubles and the perfect gifts. I want one of every item… read more

Our New Home

When John and I moved to Greenwich we had a 2-year-old daughter and were 6 months pregnant with our second. We moved into a rental and figured it would take us a year or so to figure out what neighborhood we wanted to live in. 5 and a half years later Emma is turning 7,… read more

Interior Design: Kips Bay Decorator Show House

In the midst of the end-of-school-year chaos I was invited to go into New York City and see the Kips Bay Decorator Show House. I had never been so I jumped at the opportunity to see it. It did not disappoint! The Mark D. Sikes room was one of my favorites but along the way… read more
