Beautiful Home: Sarah Bartholomew

We have been chipping away at small projects over here at our house. As we think about the end look we are hoping to achieve, I love finding inspiration on the web. Sarah Bartholomew was featured in Southern Living recently. Her Nashville home is perfection. I love everything from the color patterns to the decorative… read more

Master Bath Redo

In our new home we have a decade worth of work to do. Redoing our master bathroom wasn’t in the 2 year plan, but when we sprung a leak that was threatening to ruin our living room we had to act fast. You can see from the photos that the before and after are night… read more

Beautiful Home: Jay Jeffers in St. Helena

It’s a beautiful summer day in Connecticut. The kind of day where you can be outdoors all day long. I think this St. Helena home designed by Jay Jeffers would be the ideal place to spend some time this summer. The rustic barn and well-manicured pool area present a perfect juxtaposition. Every room inside the home is polished… read more

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

A beautiful hotel feels clean and fresh. A prefer a simple clutter-free space that allows room for relaxation and peace. 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
