Interiors: Paradise in St. Barts

Do you ever find yourself wanting to be transported to a place? It happens to me all the time. This year, it’s been happening more often due to the constant rain. We were graced with a few days of spring-like weather that had everyone excited for the warm weather to come, but alas, rain is back in the forecast. This means I’ll be daydreaming about being on an island somewhere and I’ve found just the place transport myself to – the Villa Palmier in St. Barts.

This slice of paradise has been designed in a way that the indoor and outdoor living space work together seamlessly. Matt and Kate Holstein, an American couple from Aspen, Colorado fell in love with St. Barts. They worked together to renovate the entire house and landscaping into what is now a serene oasis. Every detail of this vacation rental is beautifully thought out with its simplicity and neutral color palette.

I hope this home brought you as much inspiration as it did for me – I’m going to be dreaming about the sea breeze, ocean view and retreating for a family vacation here sometime in the future.

Hatch Collection for Spring

During my pregnancy with Jackson, I was fortunate that several of my friends knew about Hatch Collection when my baby bump began to show. Fast forward two plus years and I’m pregnant with our second child (a girl!). Let me tell you, I was surprised how quickly I popped this time around! I didn’t show until nearly six months with Jackson. Not so this time. I’m at six months now and I look like I did at eight months the first time!

I’m now entirely wearing maternity clothes (especially in the pants department) and I thank my lucky stars that I knew to go directly to Hatch to get items that were not only stylish but also comfortable. Our weather here in San Francisco has finally turned to spring – one of the nicest times of year here. Especially with their new Spring Collection launching – perfect timing to dress this bump. I wanted to find items that were for warmer weather – since we spend a significant amount of time traveling to warmer weather this time of year.

What I love about Hatch is the quality of their fabrics, the style of the items and the wide selection. I chose a great spaghetti strap jumper that I can’t get enough of! I have been wearing it almost every day since it arrived – I’m in love with it. I also found a beige sleeveless top that looks great with shorts (boy do I need to work on my tan!) or with jeans. I like to buy items that can transition from work to play. Often, I don’t have the time to change from one outfit to the other, so items that can be versatile are a must! I depend on Hatch for looking my best during my pregnancy months!

Step into Spring with World Market

Each spring, my husband goes to Arizona for Spring Training. We visit him for several long weekends and love stepping into the warm weather. Probably my favorite thing about being in Arizona, is the ability to be in the outdoors. Back home in San Francisco, I am outside quite a bit but I miss having a garden of my own and warm nights eating outdoors.

I’ve been daydreaming about having my own backyard, and there are a few looks I would snap up from World Market – if I did. I have always loved going into World Market to find items from the far corners of the globe. The selection is fresh and new and I never walk out without something for my home.
If you’re looking to freshen up the look in your home, now is the time to do it with World Market. I’ve created a round-up collage of my favorite things and I have to tell you, there are some great pieces to choose from. Dining room chairs and table, geometric napkins as well as stunning brass bowls, gold-rimmed glasses, carved wood candleholders, and stunning white lanterns that would look perfect in my dream backyard.

Now here is the good news! Right now, you can get a huge Family & Friends discount at World Market until tomorrow – 30% off, plus Free Shipping on $100+ online with the code FRIENDS. This makes it the perfect time to shake things up in your home and create fresh energy for spring. Happy refresh of your home – I’ll be joining you on this one!

March Moodboard

Each year March marks the start of warm weather for me. It’s probably because we travel down to Arizona twice throughout the month to visit Eric. I relish the warm sunshine we get to enjoy in Arizona for a couple of days, especially after the rainy season we’ve had this year.

This month also brings a seasonal shift. With daylight savings happening this weekend, we’ll be able to enjoy the daylight that much longer. I could see bedtime getting pushed a little more for Jackson so we can sneak off to the park for some each basketball time.

Each month I want to start sharing a few things that are making me happy.

  • Next week I’m getting a much needed haircut – do y’all ever reschedule your appointments a few times before going in? It’s been happening to me ever since I became a mom. I am loving this shorter layered look for spring and summer.
  • I’ve been lusting over this crochet bell bag for quite some time – it’s not practical by any means but I just love it!
  • I’ve been organizing and reorganizing our open shelving in our kitchen – wishing it could look as minimal as the photo above.
  • With a new season I try to bring in a few new plants. Anyone else loving mini cacti and succulents – I can actually keep them alive.
  • Had to share these pants by Madewell from their new beachwear line. I just popped into their shop here in Scottsdale and LOVE them. The lightweight fabric is perfect for warm days.
  • Each year requires a new pair of sandals and I’m coveting these Loeffler Randall nude beauties this year. Do you have any favorite sandals?
  • Lastly, I am working on a little master bedding refresh. This bedroom has given me a lot of inspiration to go all neutral. This throw just came in the mail from Serena & Lily for the room.

March Favorites

Do you have anything that is inspiring you this spring? Any new favorites pieces you are adding to your wardrobe? I’d love for you to share.

Hope all of you have a wonderful weekend!
