I have taken a couple of prolonged ‘pauses’ in blogging, during which we completed and photographed some pretty great projects. This is one of them. At first, my thought was – the ship has sailed, the pictures have been shared on Instagram and on my website, even published, so why dig up old news? Then I thought…I never really took the opportunity to share the whole story of this renovation project for a great family – it is good to do for posterity’s sake if nothing else. And, it’s actually a pretty neat story. Especially if you are into the architectural history, or a lover of color, or both.
So, without further ado, I present the reveal of a past project…which was beautifully photographed by Michael Lee well over a year ago.Read More
What is better than lounging in a cozy, inviting corner chaise longue with a good book (or podcast, or Instagram feed) and your favorite beverage? Nothing, ever. Well, maybe napping – though I’m personally not a napper (I always feel more tired when I wake up!). When I am designing living spaces for clients I am usually angling to see if I can fit one into the furniture layout. It isn’t always easy, but when there is adequate space in just the right place, it is magic!
The only problem is…I often have a really hard time finding a chaise with the ‘just right’ specs – style, size, one-arm (generally looks best in a corner) and, most importantly, quality construction.
But I’m all about finding unicorns, and today I’m sharing one with you.Read More
It is indeed possible to design beautiful spaces with young children in mind that are exceptionally functional, do not look like a preschool restroom, and can go the distance to serve the family well beyond the little-kid years. I’m going to break it down for you with 10 great design ideas for making a bathroom kid-friendly (note that I did not say kid-PROOF…because that’s only part of it…). And…5 mistakes you’ll want to steer clear of!Read More
It has been awhile since a plumbing fixture or fitting earned #FFFFind status. I recently learned about the coolest innovation in lavatory (sink) and tub drains, and wanted to share it with you. What’s that you say…a “cool” drain? [Note: Some of the links in this post are affiliate links, which means if you click…Read More
Ever since finding these great ‘vintage bookshelf edition’ board games a few years ago for my One Room Challenge landing (which has recently been dubbed a ‘pajama lounge’), I’ve been a wee bit obsessed with finding better-looking versions of everything from classic books to, well, other types of games!
Today I’ve rounded up for you three different categories of games that look as amazing in your home as they are fun to play.Read More

For the first time, I am sharing a find for the outside of your house! ‘Tis the season for amping up curb appeal, and a front porch refresh is a great place to start. Someone told me once that a good doormat was the first line of defense for keeping mud and dirt out of…Read More
This post is sponsored by Circle Furniture. The designs and opinions within are my own. I know I’ve mentioned this recently, but there is something about the last few months that has really brought into focus what I want to change in my own home. And I don’t think I’m alone – we have received…Read More
Today is Juneteenth. I am ashamed to say I never bothered to learn the origin of the holiday until recently. Juneteenth commemorates the emancipation of the last remaining slaves in the Confederacy, in Texas, on June 19, 1865. This was two and a half years after the Emancipation Proclamation, six months after the 13th Amendment,…Read More
