A Little Bit of a Rant

Carolina Island House

  Image Credit Sometimes I think I should have been born on the East coast. Up until recently (within the last 3 or so years), I didn’t know what made my heart sing in terms of home decor. Don’t get me wrong, I could look through catalogs and home decor magazines and see a lot of inspiring pictures, but I wasn’t able to pinpoint what it was that I loved. Enter in Pottery Barn and Pinterest. Pottery Barn has great stylists. Their catalogs are carefully crafted to make you want to buy an entire room- even if you don’t have […]

May flew by. I mean FLEW. Asa finished preschool, we packed and prepared for our Disney Cruise, went on said cruise, came home (after the LONGEST day at the airport EV-ER),  had the boys 1st and 4th birthday party, and then sold our house. Yup. Cur-a-zy. So I know I have been promising the rest of the house picks, some more showers and some more recipes, but I kindly ask for your patience.  I’m still working out my summer routine and throwing in packing and moving to the mix is just a little nutso.

Mason’s room.  When I started looking for bedding for Mason I looked for a room with a classic, clean feel.  I didn’t want anything super babyish because we needed his room to serve as a guest room also. Here it is: Before and after:  Yeah, those orange walls were nasty! (picture on the right by Courtney Miller Photography). I found my inspiration from a Pottery Barn Kids catalog.                             Here is a picture of the in between (Asa’s nursery) Here’s a fuller picture of the one above […]

The House: Kid Room #1

kidsroom3

I know I said I wanted to go in order, but honestly order can go one of two ways.  I can show you the dining room, living room and playroom, or I can show you the kid’s rooms and guest bath.  I decided to go with the kids rooms first then work our way back. So…Asa’s room.  Well, he originally started in what is currently the nursery/guest room, and when we had Mason we moved him to what was the guest room.  My inspiration (or blatant rip off) came from Thrifty Decor Chick (for some reason I can’t get a direct […]
