Last weekend, Mark and I hosted a group of friends for an outdoor summer barbecue! I had the food catered from a local BBQ joint so the only thing I had to worry about was décor and serving utensils! (The best part of party planning, if you ask me…)
Road trips were part of my childhood and I remember loading up on penny candy, books-on-tape, and pencil and paper to keep track of all the license plates I saw… my kids aren’t quite there yet, so it takes a bit of planning to get them all organized and out the door for a 5-hour car ride! I follow the same steps every time we travel, and it makes our life SO much easier.
One of the things I enjoy most about design and decorating is planning the space. I love sitting down with a blank canvas and dreaming of how the space might look with a little TLC. But sometimes it’s really REALLY hard to see a space with fresh eyes and we can fail to see certain layouts or perhaps fail to consider different design angles. Which is why I was THRILLED to be asked to partner with an online design source, Modsy.
The evolution of a space is sometimes a long and winding one, and Eleanor’s room has been ground zero for a domino effect of updates! Her new rug did NOT match the thread of green throughout the room, so I had to spray paint her headboard and her nightstand! Thankfully… updating these pieces took one afternoon and three easy steps!
I was asked to feature their new Coastal Living line and you’re probably thinking the same thing I was thinking…. that’s cool, but I’m not particularly ‘coastal’ in my decor. You guys. This line was every shade of blue that I love and more! IF you’re coastal… just stop reading this post and go. Go now.
