Gift Guide - for girls

I love designing children's rooms and shopping for them is just as fun! My daughter dropped a few hints this year. Today, I'm sharing some ideas for the special little girls in your life! Happy Shopping! This month is flying by already....


*5 I LOVE this concept. Each hand knit doll sold = 10 meals for a hungry child. One of these adorable hand knit dolls from Cuddle and Kind is at the top of the list for my daughter!

Love the look - holiday style

I'm not going to fib, I've been running around like a mad woman. Is it me or does it feel like it should be Thursday!? I just realized I don't even think my show (one of my only escapes) is on tonight! I've got the holidays on my mind and I am feeling festive. Crazed and festive - lol. I'm going to be posting some holiday style over the next two weeks. This week, I am kicking it off with a casual holiday look! Here's hoping you can sneak a moment to yourself tonight too! I'm going to order some furniture for clients and do a little holiday shopping for my family. xx

There are still a ton of sales out there! I'm not often a Talbot's shopper but some of their holiday looks are really cute!

Holiday in the Kitchen

When you have a kitchen as gorgeous as this why not go all out with holiday decorations!! I spent some of today laying out a kitchen design. I can't help but envision what a space will look like and how it will function as a I draw, design and create. December's House Beautiful kitchen of the month is full of stunning details and plenty of amazing inspiration. Designer, Alison Pickart did not miss a beat while designing this double-height beauty in her own home. She created a number of stations around the room. Just take a peek at how lovely it all turned out. I'd love to see the rest of the 1932 built California cottage she shares with her family. (you know my love of smaller, charming homes) Images: House Beautiful, photos by: Erin Kunkel
Just look at this marble checked floor! Gah! I have marble counter tops myself and agree with Alison - They only get better with age and wear. I can also roll a mean holiday cookie dough on them!

Shelter Loves

When looking back at old photos, I think I still look the best when my outfit is classic with a modern twist. Timeless style goes a long way and does not date quickly. I often pair classic pieces with modern elements in my design projects. This way the look has lasting appeal and with just the right amount of freshness. I've been selecting lots of furniture lately for projects. This week, I am on a classic with a twist kick. (hence my picks below). Happy December - may yours be one filled with joy, hope and love for you! I am in Vermont this weekend, we are heading to the tree farm to cut down a tree. I love this tradition and the holiday season! Bon Weekend! xx

1. What a beautiful entrance. I can't wait to purchase my wreath this weekend! You really can't go wrong with a black front door!
2. I often give wine as a gift. These tartan bags finish off the package perfectly. This sweet cross over bag is on sale today too! It's looks darling with a monogram.
3. How cute is the Clare V.  Elle bag?? It may need to be a gift to myself. eek.
4. Someday I will have a spot for a chaise lounge. I was on the hunt for the perfect one this week and came across this beauty
5. We could use a little more Grace in this world. I'm not going to lie, I'm looking forward to seeing all the great things Meghan Markle is going to do. The wedding will be perfection, I am sure of this. She is so lovely, smart and forward thinking.
6. Okay, I'm also loving the bohemian vibe dresses that are around.
7. This!!!!!! I have been embracing this concept lately, it is LIFE changing!!! 
8. Ohhh Prada, how I love thee...these are on sale!!

Gift Guide 2017 - For the yogi + health conscious

I think it is safe to say that we all have a little spiritual gangster in us. Even if you aren't a die hard yogi, there's no reason you can't dress like one and embrace a bit of peace in your life! I could always use a bit more calm, so I try to get to a yoga class here and there when I can. I am also eating cleaner and prefer to use chemical free products! Today I'm sharing my gift guide for the healthy, calm lady on your list! Namaste 🙏

Holiday Cheer

I typically don't decorate my house for the holiday until December. I am very busy (which is a good thing) with work but am determined to get all my shopping, wrapping and decorating finished early this year. (I already ordered and received my cards)! Here is a bit of holiday inspiration to get you through the mid week hump. I'm more of a fresh greens, incandescent light girl myself. I tried to include an array of styles! xx

Shelter Loves

Well hello, hello! I've been crazy busy with work, which is a good thing. When I'm busy that only means I have been dreaming up inspiration to share with you too! I'm posting my latest loves today....

1. Velvet, velvet and more velvet. In fact, I am wearing the most comfy velvet pants now! These are a dream. I paired them with a cute denim shirt and sneakers. J. Crew is having 40% off their entire site. 
2. I've been designing a neutral palette for a gorgeous home all week. I often work in color but the architecture is so beautiful that mixing gorgeous textiles and fabrics in shades of grey, blue, tan, and camel and white felt right! I of course added a pop of color in the media room! 
3. A Janet Hill print would make the perfect gift for your design savvy friends, choosing the right one is the tricky part! (they are all amazing)
4. This jumper is stunning for a holiday party. The back bow is fabulous. Shopbop is having a buy more save more sale!!
5. The Chalkboard magazine shared some beautiful natural decor Thanksgiving tips for your holiday table. After I publish this post, I'm off to the florist to choose my table top flowers!
6. YES Ma'am. (and guys)
