After an exhausting weekend, is it possible to be happy that it's Monday? The clouds are rolling in, the rain is coming, and I can't help but be thrilled at the possibility of a day all to myself!
I love this dining table, the mixture of seating, the lighting...perfection!
Hope everyone has a beautiful well!

I Can Smell the Saltwater....

Good Monday morning everyone....I just finalized our plans for spring break and summer vacation and my mind is somewhere far, far away from here. I got lost for hours browsing all the summer rentals... It was a difficult choice, but I settled on a charming little "surfer's cottage" mere steps from the beach. I always take off work and spend the entire month of July at the beach with my daughters and my husband comes down on the weekends or whenever he can get away. I love the grainy sand on their tan little shoulders and the many early morning walks on the beach while they are still sleeping...
This chandelier is just to die for, and so fitting for the way I'm well!

Al Fresco

Happy Thursday everyone...With the weather here in the south creeping steadily toward 70 degrees today, my mind wanders to warmer times, dinner al fresco and catching fireflies with my children. Even though I know we will once again don our down coats, hunter boots and scarves...I will savor every moment well!

Swedish Style

(images from Lars and Ursula Sjoberg's book...The Swedish Room

Good Monday morning everyone...I love these images, and if I could go back in time, I would have used some of these design inspirations in my own home...

The Swedish interior design team of Lars and Ursula Sjoberg really know how to create inviting rooms whether it's a arisocratic boudoir or a farmer's kitchen. Their distressed pale colors and light diffused rooms inspire designers to recreate these timeless interiors over and over again.

Hope everyone has a wonderful well!

Simple Sunday Mornings

Happy Sunday...I have so much to do today, but like the bed in this picture, mine too was very difficult to get out of this morning. Only the longing for coffee and toast with a tiny sprinkling of cinnamon and sugar could pull me out from under the covers.
One thing that is truly divine....SUNSHINE!! After what seems like forever with thick, heavy, snow filled clouds, we have bright, mood-lifting sun this morning. I spent a few quiet, extra minutes looking out my kitchen window at the beauty of it well...

Mismatched Finishes

Happy Friday everyone....I hope everyone has a very relaxing weekend. I loved the deliberately mismatched finishes on these pieces, somehow they all seem to work together beautifully and achieve that "not trying too hard" style. So inspiring....

live well!

Red Love

For the first day of February, I thought it fitting to do a post about the color of the moment....Nothing says glamour quite the same as a flowing red dress, or the charming way a red door welcomes you in.
I hope you have a wonderful well
