Bring the Picnic Indoors

Bring the Picnic Indoors | Sacramento Street


Everyone is dreaming of spring, blossoming trees, warm sunshine and temperatures above freezing. With Arctic temperatures hitting most of the country, no one wants to go outside. It’s time to get creative with what you can do indoors. I’ve been day dreaming about gathering friends for an outdoor picnic for months but that’s not really possible for awhile so I decided to bring my picnic indoors. Why should I wait until the weather gets warmer?

My first order of business was to create a cozy spot where everyone would want to sit, eat, drink and enjoy themselves for hours on end. The key ingredient – comfy pillows and blankets to cover the floor. When creating an indoor picnic you want to be sure everyone will want to kick off their shoes, curl up and enjoy each other’s company. Be sure to have yummy treats and wine of course. I referenced our guide to creating the perfect cheese board that our team put together this past fall.

Press: Jackson’s Nursery Reveal

Nursery | Design by Caitlin Flemming | Photo by Bess Friday

 

Today I’m thrilled to finally share Jackson’s nursery with all of you. This project was a labor of love and it all fell into place with ease. I envisioned a peaceful oasis for him to enjoy.


Originally, I had planned to keep the guest bed in the room. However, it quickly became apparent that there wasn’t enough room. I swapped that idea for a low woven bench with a cushion and pillows that is kid friendly that we could use as a reading nook. This allowed for more space to bring in the glider, crib, and changing table.

A nursery has all of the must-haves for a babies room – crib, changing table, chest of drawers. But when designing the nursery I thought about how it could evolve with time. That’s why I purposefully chose items that can change over time as he grows up. For example, the changing tray on the campaign dresser can be removed and it becomes a stunning chest of drawers. The baskets filled with receiving blankets can also function for storing toys. If you think ahead, you can buy items that serve several functions.

One of the easiest ways to update your home (or a room in your home) is with a couple of beautiful new throw pillows. Whenever I’m in the mood to change things up I always start with the pillows. It’s the easiest and most cost effective purchase for an instant transformation to any room. I’m having the urge to do something updating right now.World Market Pillows

Interiors: My Dream Chair

| Sacramento Street

 

When we moved into our new apartment a year and a half ago I had a vision and wish list for the pieces I wanted. There is nothing I love more than mixing old and new together. With that being said, incorporating a touch of modern with antiques in each room is important to me.

 

The quest began for a chair for a corner in our dining room. It’s been sitting empty, waiting to be filled with the perfect lounge chair.

I’ve always had a love affair with white Barcelona chairs. I’ve dreamt of having one in my own home for years. When I began my search for one I found that my dream chair was a little to pricey for my budget. That’s when I was introduced to Rove Concepts who offers mid-century modern replica designs that are more affordable. Friends, it’s one of my new go-to sources for client projects. When my Barcelona chair (in Siena White) arrived I was in awe of its beautiful soft leather.

Let’s just say, what used to be an unused spot in our home is now my favorite spot to sit back to enjoy a warm cup of tea, a stack of magazines or catching up on my favorite sites. I have to say, although this chair is modern – it will forever be timeless in my eyes. I know that I’ll be able to move it from room to room if I ever get the itch to redecorate. And we all know that happens quite often!
