After just over two years of living in this sweet home of ours, we finally got to take the plunge and finish our kitchen. I LOVE IT. To remind you of where our kitchen started, here is a photo from our move-in day. (You can also see all the “before” photos of our home in […]

Fresh Linens for Spring

May 2, 2020

Featured linens were kindly gifted from Garnet Hill.  As a company focused on quality and sustainability, I am proud to routinely partner with Garnet Hill.  All thoughts and opinions are my own.   Spring is my love language: longer, sunnier days, flowers starting to bloom, and abundant beams of sunlight flooding the home truly make […]

A few weeks into quarantining, and I’ve become all the more appreciative of the little indulgences at home that make this time indoors feel serene and welcoming instead of stuffy and monotonous. Fresh blooms and lit candles always elevate the everyday for me, and I wanted to share some of my ultimate favorites! Bonus: many […]

Sale Selects!

March 21, 2020

How is everyone doing? It’s been a crazy week and things escalated rapidly, with our day-to-day lives changing pretty drastically.

January 15, 2020

  A big focus for me at the start of 2020 was creating a detailed budget to better understand where each and every dollar of our paychecks go (and should go) this year. Doing this got me really thinking about the two categories that I most enjoy: interiors and my wardrobe. While I try to […]

  I’ve been trying to absorb and breathe in this transition from 2019 to 2020, to take a real pause and reflect. Turning the page on a decade brings a sense of gravitas to the new year — both in looking back and trying to look forward. Ten years ago, college had barely just ended, […]

With Thanksgiving being so late this year, we are catapulting towards the holidays faster than ever, which means it’s crunch time for getting those closest to you the gifts they deserve to remind them how much they mean to you. I’ve always preferred fewer, but nicer and more luxurious things that make me feel good […]

Happy holiday season, everyone! We’ve reached the time of year that enters warp-speed, where the days feel short, and the gift list gets long. But I think a great way to fight off the stress of the holidays are to lean in and create an oasis at home that pauses to actually celebrate it, to […]
