Living With Great Style

a brand new week . . .


It’s always bittersweet coming home after an incredible trip. The last week in Alaska was incredible – it definitely exceeded my expectations and was the perfect place to go for our babymoon. Both Eric and I have been reminiscing about our favorite parts. Looking back at the photos brings me so much happiness. It was however quite nice walking into our home after being away for a week. Home is definitely where the heart is. Although not waking up to the beautiful landscape and tranquility of Alaska makes me miss the outdoors. I’ll be sharing more details about our journey next week.

In the meantime, I hope all of you have an amazing week ahead. I have quite a bit in store for you this week. Tomorrow we have another beautiful post by Simone LeBlanc – honestly, I’m madly in love with it, so be sure to pop back by later this week.

Alaska | Sacramento StreetPopping in from Alaska – I hope each and everyone of you enjoyed the long weekend! Eric and I have been enjoying our babymoon up in Alaska. The beauty that you find around every single corner is breathtaking. It’s amazing what a little time surrounded by nature can do for your soul. The tranquility of being on the water has made it extra special.

I’m excited for the next few adventures that are ahead. I can’t wait to share my travel tales when I get back!

Enjoy this short week and be sure to pop by for a handful of fun posts.

Rug Sourcing | Caitlin Flemming DesignThis past weekend was blissful – the weather was warm but had a hint of fall in the air. We enjoyed a night at the movies and got home projects accomplished. Knowing that it was our last weekend in town for quite awhile got us stepping into high gear.

We’ve been working hard on project nursery – picking out furniture, painting, selecting rugs – I’m loving the way it’s coming together so organically. As pieces begin to arrive it has me giddy for this little guy to join us. Honestly, I can’t wait to show you the final design!

Cheers to a new week ahead – I hope it is productive for all of you!

a brand new week . . .

nurseryWeekends lately have been spent working on my own home design projects – figuring out where to put artwork, adding another coat of paint to Baby Flemming’s room (don’t worry, Eric is doing that) and then playing around with furniture placement and design ideas for his room. This past weekend there was one of the “AHA” moments when it came to his room – before we knew about this little guy I completely designed our spare room as a guest bedroom. I’ve been trying my best to keep this room as a guest/baby room but with everything that comes with a baby I don’t think it’s possible. Plus, I want it to feel like a place he can play in. I’ve been culling through magazines, Pinterest and popping into stores to find what I want to do. After some brainstorming sessions with my mom, we finally had an amazing idea. I can’t wait to share it with all of you when the nursery is done, but I can say I want to move into his room. It’s going to be the best room in the house. As long as we can pull this idea off.

So with that inspiration in hand, I’m ready to tackle my clients design projects with full vengeance this week. I hope all of you have a productive week ahead!

nursery inspiration

After a whirlwind week in Raleigh, NC, it was such a treat coming home. While I feel incredibly lucky to be able to travel and discover new places there is nothing I love more than being back home. This weekend we escaped the fog and headed up to Marin for some sunshine, enjoyed an early morning run to the farmers market, and then spent the majority of the weekend planning out baby Flemming’s nursery. Lately I’ve felt  like I’m constantly working on client projects that I haven’t had time to sit down to really brainstorm my own home. This was such a treat and definitely got me re-energized for the new week that lies ahead.

I hope all of you have a splendid week!
