Open House

Blogging fail. I go on a good posting run and then well, I don’t. So here are some quick captures from my house that I’m slowly turning into a home. I’m taking a different approach this time around with how I decorate. I’m trying to work with what I have and selecting pieces that make me pause and not move forward until it’s mine (hmm sorta like dating). Just not pausing a lot for that right now. Anyway, that escalated quickly. Welcome to my home. I promise I’ll let you leave.


After holding onto this console table for nearly ten years I was ready to get rid of it prior to this move, but for now it works and staying put. The art work is an original from a silent action and sets the color palate for the rest of the house. The lamp is one of my all-time favorite vintage finds from a local flea market. It’s original teak wood with a marble base. The other accessories are pieces I’ve collected along the way from California, Mississippi to Crate & Barrel. Yeah that’s where I got that not-real coral from. Or maybe it’s real. Whatever it look good.


So this room. I went around in my head on what to do to make the dining room come together. There are two huge walls and I thought oh sure I’ll just put a mirror up there and call it a day. But I miiiggghhhhhttttt have a mirror (and lamp) obsession so I knew I had to try something different. I have art, photography and mirrors so I figured let’s go with some words. So I went to my friend and co-worker who has some hand-written talent with a bag of In ‘n Out burgers and asked her to help. She obliged and killed it! I’m so in love with this message and how it really completes the room. Table and chairs are Jonathan Adler and I just propped that plant in a Target basket there because it felt right.





Let’s get personal

This hand-written personalized jewelry is such an original gift idea! I’m always looking for something different. Something out of the box. And this my friends is just the thing. Get it for your bestie, sister or drop a hint to your man.


Baby, you’re looking good

I couldn’t pick just one…and there’s more from where these came from by the Oklahoma couple behind Love Well Handmade. They also give back 5% of the sale to various do-good partners.
