The past few weeks I’ve been immersed in design projects – it has been incredible. I thought I’d share a little bit of what I have pulled together for one client. This client is all about black and white. I felt that adding texture and pattern was essential to give the spaces I’m designing character.
This week there is a lot in store for you – I’ll be sharing details about the collection I helped curate for Project Bly (which launched today), we have a new Blooms in Season post that I’m madly in love with (think spring whites), and much more!
I hope all of you have a splendid week ahead.

Happy Monday! This weekend was pretty incredible. I’m excited and overjoyed for Eric. We traveled up to Napa for his first triathlon that he’s been training for months and months. It took time, dedication and perseverance to get to the day of the race. I’ve never been so incredibly proud of him. Over twelve hours he swam, biked and ran 140.6 miles. Something I can honestly say I could never do. As I cheered him on along the route I saw how strong and happy he was about achieving his goal. It was amazing!
As I start this new week I’m inspired by his unbelievable achievement. I hope all of you have a wonderful week ahead!

Happy Monday! With a new season, comes new traditions. I start out each week with a tidy house, laundry put away and a to-do list ready for me to conquer. The Monday blues are common for so many people but lately I’ve found that with this new tradition I have a completely different “let’s go” attitude when Monday rolls around. I feel energized to get tasks crossed off my daunting to-do list. I highly recommend doing this if you need a way to get motivated for your work week.
Do you have any tips for kicking the Monday blues goodbye?
I hope all of you have a splendid week ahead!

After an incredible, inspiring and off the grid trip to Mexico to visit my dad – I came home feel rejuvenated, refreshed and at ease with everything that was waiting for me upon my return. Spending my days unplugged, swinging in a hammock reading, snorkeling with sea lions and enjoying life without any interruptions was delightful. Keeping all of that in mind, I’m slowly hitting the ground running this week but remembering that there needs to be more work/life balance happening around here. Details about the trip will be coming soon!
This week there are a handful of fun posts coming your way. So be sure to check back regularly.
It’s good to be back friends!

This weekend was all about celebrating a big milestone for my dear cousin Claire. She turned the big 2-1 yesterday. I remember feeling like I was such an adult when I turned twenty one – I now realize how much I still had to learn in life. A few years back my college besties and I promised Claire that we would take her out for thiscelebration. So my girlfriends and I rallied, and somehow managed to go out past 1am. I have to be honest with you, while we were out dancing the night away, there was a moment when I looked around and felt like I was in an episode of Sex and the City where I’m at least 8 years older than everyone in the crowd. It was definitely a night to remember in more ways than one!
Now I’m ready for a productive week working on fun projects that I hope to unveil soon. In the meantime, there are a lot of fun posts scheduled for this week, including my post on Istanbul.
I hope all of you have a wonderful week ahead!
