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.

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

You all know I get very fired up about good local businesses. Today’s post is about a fabulous site I have been meaning to blog about for some time. (I fully blame the new baby for the delay!) Please help me to welcome The Local Vault. Do you ever look around your home and feel… read more

Home: Small Changes

We rent our home so over the last few years I have been unmotivated to make changes. Then with a third on the way I knew we needed to freshen things up before the baby arrived. I was so grateful for Redi-Cut Carpet in Westport as I was in dire need of new carpets in our… read more
