A PEEK INTO JAMIE'S HOME

They say your home should reflect who you are. Our home is definitely starting to do just that, but is a work in progress just as we are! That's probably why snippets are better than the whole room in some cases...
we're getting there slowly but surely.
Elements of Style found these butterfly prints and I swooped them up to help the TV not be the main focal point. I really am going to paint these walls the perfect shade of gray, just wait and see!
Hello Chiang Mai Dragon, some friends share clothes. Vashti & I share fabrics, it's a friendship made in heaven!
This antique trunk is perfect for our family, it can handle lots of wear and tear! The more distressed the better! What's a table without books? I did add a few manly books for the man of the house.
I'm a thoughtful wife like that!
I knew I married the right man, but when he saw this barn door and thought to put in this very oversized niche, I fell in love all over again!
Another antique find over the mantle, are you seeing a trend here?
Memories... this old crate that bears my maiden name belonged to my parents and I was lucky enough to bring into my home.
Okay, you may think, huh?! We have a wall phone jack mounted near the pantry and I knew we needed a phone just like when we were growing up.  Best Christmas gift ever from my hubby!!
I hide in the pantry and chat away with my bff...kidding!
Our favorite spot in the house to relax and have a drink with friends.
The pillows were dishtowels from catsudio that were too cute to use!
I love it when a DIY goes as planned! Our faux ostrich night stand.
I love Bengal Bazaar in any color way but scored it in bronze! We upholstered an old screen divider that was no longer getting any use and it is now our headboard.
Our son, Tate wanted a surf room after visiting the North Shore and one of the locals hand crafted this wood surfboard.
I don't know if you noticed, but I love turquoise. I painted the back of our bookshelves in our office and it makes me smile as I blog away.
I am a California girl at heart!




p.s. Sorry Pops, I know how much you love the quality of instagram!

  15. Thank you so much for all of the sweet comments! You guys made my day! My husband just pointed out a typo, of course, at the end of the day and I am slightly mortified! Forgive me...

  16. I love seeing all of the details of a room coming together - looks like it's a perfect reflection of your personality! Where did you find the ceramic pineapple? I have a few brass ones, but this one would be a fun addition!

  17. Great home Jamie. I love a home that reflects the personality of it's owner, and yours is full of personality. I'm a bug fan of Chiang Mai Dragon, and my other favourite bits are all the rustic/vintage pieces - so cool. xxx

  21. Wow, what a beautiful home you have. My very favourite thing is when a home really reflects the people living in it. It doesn't look overly made up but sure is a gorgeous place!

  23. Great finds! I love the big metallic bowl on the mantel. I have a similar one and haven't figured out what I want to do with it.
