If you’re anything like me, you’re impatient. I have my new apartment, I want it completely decorated and move-in ready like, yesterday. Over the years and the moves, I’ve learned from experience though, that the best thing to do when furnishing a new space is to….

Moving Week

I’m moving this week! I’m thrilled because this is the first time that I will be totally and completely independent. While there are ups and downs to moving, the idea of starting fresh and creating a new space to call home is undeniably exciting. To celebrate, I’ve dedicated a whole week of posts about moving, design, and the spaces we call home.

Hope you enjoy!

My (slightly girly) Break-up Mix

Hello August

August 7, 2014

With each Fall preview collection and school supply sale advertised, I can see the end of Summer in sight. Summer is MY. FAVORITE. Here in Florida the warm, sunny weather will take us into December, but it’s not just the weather that makes the seasons shift. It’s everything: the return of football, trading in that fruity cocktail for a pumpkin spice coffee, and switching from sandals all-day-every-day to boots. I’m not ready for Summer to end! There’s still time, though. There’s still August. In an effort to celebrate the beauty of Summer, here are some inspiring images I just had to share.
