Have you all heard of Lulu and Georgia? It’s a name most interior designers know, but isn’t quite mainstream enough that everyone knows of them. As you know, I’m slowly putting our home together, and after moving from Philadelphia to this new place of ours in Boston with very little in tow furniture and decor […]

October 15, 2018

vintage large maple bowl After a little bit of anticipation and some much needed time to get settled, to figure out a schedule that works for me, and to get everything set up, our new shop Millay Market is now live! (The “Market” tab at the top of this site will also take ya there!) […]

Millay Market is Live!

October 2, 2018

photo by Anna Potter Isn’t this photo beautiful—melancholy, droopy, dark, and beautiful? K good, harness that feeling, hold on to it tight while I prepare you for the next movie you need to see and the abundance of tears it will conjure. Amazon Studios was kind enough to invite me to a special preview showing […]

The One Where I Wept for an Hour Straight: A review of Life Itself

September 21, 2018

  center image source As an entrepreneur, I’ve spent the past several years mastering how to juggle many jobs and tasks at once. If I’m being honest, this wrangling act of taking on a lot has always been my M.O.  In high school and college, I was the one constantly raising my hand to lead […]

How I Stay on Task (Plus a Giveaway!)—CLOSED GIVEAWAY

September 17, 2018

  Something I’d really like to explore on this blog is sustainable and ethically made fashion. For most of us, how we dress ourselves is a nice luxury, and I feel strongly that if I’m going to take advantage of the priviledge of buying “pretty” things to wear, I want to make sure no one […]

Bonjour friends! As I mentioned in my last post, we’re ready to get rolling with real progress in our living room space. First up? Getting a couch. But the question remains: sofa or sectional? The dilemma is real… Since our living room and kitchen space is essentially one open floor plan, I want to be […]

Our Home: Sofas vs Chaise Sectionals

August 28, 2018

It’s been a little while since I’ve checked in about plans for our home, but now that it’s been a couple months since we moved in, it’s time to really get planning. And I AM SO READY! Despite trying to purge most of our things prior to moving, there was still a lot to Craigslist […]

Our Home: Living Room Plans

August 20, 2018

I’ve been intimidated to write this post. I had every intention of having this finished by Monday, but nerves kept stopping me. Every time I tried, I conveniently found eighty other things that all of a sudden had to be done immediately. But I really wanted address the question of why I don’t want to […]

Why I Don’t Want a Brick and Mortar

August 1, 2018

Where I’ve been. If ones twenties are for forging ahead in adventure, for putting yourself out there and going at life with an almost reckless abandon, then I think I’ve succeeded. I worked abroad right out of college. I left my home in the south to explore an academic career in the cold and fast-paced […]

A New Chapter for Millay

July 26, 2018

The week before we packed our bags in Philly and moved here to Boston, we snuck away to one of our favorite places in Pennsylvania: Longwood Gardens. We had met a lovely photographer at a grand opening party for CB2 a few months before, and she mentioned she was hoping to expand her photography portfolio […]
