Our home….the spring version.



The one constant in our home is change…..

It's both a blessing and curse to be a creative who loves
design and has never met a home accessory she didn't like…..

I admit I am fickle….lamps, trays, vases, busts, lanterns,
pillows, ginger jars, art, antlers, mirrors……all
seem to rotate around here on a regular basis…..


I obviously have posted too many photos of our home on this blog….
but if you are a regular around here, you will notice some
changes…….


I snapped these photos just today…..look closely and you will
see shoes, a raggedy dog toy {and lazy goldendoodle} a stray 
camera lens cover in a home styled for REAL life.

Remember, I have older children so our main living areas
stay pretty neat - we have a 'bonus room' upstairs where
my girls really relax and watch television.  {Someday I will
show you photos of that space - it's a space I intend to work on 
over the summer/fall}.


I picked up that fern at the grocery store for $4.99 yesterday…..I always remind
clients that some of the best home accessories are at your grocery store - and 
you can pick up really cheap and unique vases and vessels
at thrift stores and flea markets.  If you keep some on hand, it's easy
to plop a grocery store fern or orchid and add to your console or
coffee table - instant 'specialness'.


I bought my Restoration Hardware 'Madeleine' chairs many 
years ago….they are on sale for a great value so I ordered
an armed version for the end of my dining table….however,
RH no longer makes the same finish as my original chairs…..
I am ok with the contrast because I am happy to have that
extra seat at the end of the table. 


If I titled the photo above, it might be called "Too much is never Enough".


My high schooler has finals this week.
Yesterday I forgot my 6th grader had early pick-up at 
school….she had to call me from the school office and
ask if I was coming - major MOM FAIL!  I guess we
are all ready for summer……

And a California update….thanks for all the shopping suggestions!
We ended up visiting Venice, Santa Monica and Malibu -
all fun but phew, I could NOT drive in that traffic everyday!
Bountiful, the one store I really wanted to shop, was 
closed for some reason! Darn!  

It's Tuesday….in JUNE…..let's get this summer party started!

  14. Your home always looks so beautiful yet welcoming. I am trying hard to see what all you have on those shelves in the kitchen : ) I am sure they are every bit as beautiful as the rest of your amazingly styled areas. Happy June!
