trick or treat

hope your halloween is filled with lots of spooky fun! taylor is lucky enough to get to go trick or treating with all of her grandparents. i can't wait to see what she thinks about halloween...this is the first year she will really understand what is going on! i am also excited about eating her candy :)


at leontine fun is the skull and cross bones? a prefect combination for that preppie mom with rebellious boys!

three beautiful girls....

i thought it would be fun to take each of these girls and create their bedrooms....girlie with a vintage flair, rock and roll trendsetter, and dainty with a love for nature.

in case you didn't know...

i am a HUGE fan of graphic wallpaper. in fact, i think every house i live in should have at least one wallpapered room....
on another note, i have a big/exciting week ahead of me....can't wait to share :)

good morning.

i'd love to walk down those stairs, plop on that amazing settee (only i don't know if barron could sit on it- he'd take up the entire thing), and wait for an incredible breakfast to appear in that beautiful kitchen....hey, remember i'm a dreamer......

i have been told this a time or two....and i kind of like that about myself. so are you a realist or a dreamer?

green with envy.

lately i can't help but be drawn to kelly green....i love it! if you are looking for an accent color, this is a great one to consider. i am trying to figure out how i can bring it into my house. i would love that X stool to magically appear here....happy monday.

let's chat:
man, i love that sheer roman simple yet it looks amazing and how pretty is it w/ the light shining through....making a mental note in my head of this: great custom window treatment/ doesn't break the bank.
*time out* taylor just woke up crying/ coughing (she needed water, went back to sleep)
i think that hand that palm readers use is awesome. corky yet cool...every house needs a sense of humor.
hello jewelry box: please enter my house while i am sleeping....i promise i won't be mad. i can even tell you where our spare key is.
mary, mary, mary- that wallpaper, those lacquer lamp i love the (and leontine linens, that's a given).
thanks for the to eat a halloween cookie....want one?

you probably don't need me to remind you that it's halloween....i need some inspiration, i am running low on fuel. not a single decoration is up (i find it hard to decorate when you are selling your house), taylor is sick for the 2nd time this month, and i barely slept a wink last night. on the plus side, my XL pumpkin coffee this AM was the bomb....

a color that POPS.

sorry i have been mia...i went home for a house warming party for my brother. it was a blast and hopefully i can share pictures of his place soon. he lives in a cabin that my dad built and they just completed an addition (a bathroom and a laundry room...a must in any home). in addition to the party, i was able to get together with my BFF's for a night on the town (it's a rarity to all be together and no one be pregnant, so we took advantage). and i made a super quick trip to atlanta to help a friend w/ her house...she moved into her husband's "bachelor pad" (think GA bulldogs everywhere) when they got married and a year and half later, there is still very little of her stuff moved in....she loves turquoise and we used that as an inspiration when we shopped. so that is what i have been off to catch up, i have tons of stuff to do. happy tues!!

the beauty of imperfection.

maybe its the juxtaposition of what's going on- the things placed together that really shouldn't be there.....they just equal perfection in my book. the white dress w/ the rain boots, that elegant kitchen w/ stainless steel cabinets (might be my favorite kitchen), the old medicine cabinet with the addition of jadeite pulls, and that screen- well, it's just amazing. period. they all make a space seem perfectly imperfect. and that's the way i like it.
