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!
