Bohemian Coastal Powder Room Before And After

Bohemian Coastal Powder Room Before And After

Today I am sharing a little update on the littlest room in the new house. The first time I laid eyes on it, I thought it had so much potential. I am now realizing that I should have taken more photographs of the before, but I am pretty sure I didn’t because I wanted to forget it (I am not even sure how to describe the paint color other that “dirt smear”). Here is my powder room before and after:…

3 Best Outdoor Teak Parsons Dining Tables

Safavieh Rural Woven Dining Hooper Blue White Indoor Outdoor Chairs

This Wednesday Wishlist item is something I’ve been on the hunt for: a parsons style teak outdoor table and a matching teak dining bench. I had a wrought iron outdoor table I inherited from the previous dwellers of our Gramercy apartment, and that lasted many years save for some rust, but I felt it wasn’t comfortable and sold it on Craigslist when we moved to our first house. To replace it, I bought a trestle table and bench from World…

Holiday Home Decor Tour

Holiday Home Decor Tour

This is our first Christmas in our new home, and I had a lot of fun decorating it for the holidays. I will fully admit that I am not done, as some of my deliveries have been delayed. My oldest had been mentioning that he was concerned that Santa would not know our new address, so I involved him in the process and told him that decorating would help the big man find us. We mostly decorated our main living…

Halloween Decor House Tour

Martha Stewart Paper Bat Silhouette Décor

In years past, I did a little fall decor update, but went light on Halloween house decorating. Since they’re getting older, my kids are really into Halloween, and because I am doing my best to make this year extra special for them, I surprised them with some spooky decorating while they were out of the house (except for Rocky, who was my little assistant). They love it, and I had a lot of fun doing it. Hope you enjoy my…

Surf Inspired Bathroom

Surf Themed Bathroom

Today I’m sharing a little update to our sons’ Jack and Jill bathroom, which my two boys share. The renovation work was minimal, and I think it goes to show that sometimes a little update is all that is needed to transform a space. I always ask my kids input on how they want their rooms to look, and Bear said he wanted a “blue surf room” so I ran with that theme for the bathroom as well since it…

Moody Blue Grey Bar Pantry

Moody Blue Grey Bar Pantry

I’m so excited to share my moody blue grey bar pantry with you today. I don’t feel like it’s quite done because I am on the hunt for the perfect odd sized vintage rug (something like this). I love the contrast of the pink that is in there now, but it is too small for the floor space so it’s a placeholder for now. The existing cabinetry was beautiful and in great shape, but needed a paint job and some…

Beachy Bohemian Guest Room

Pottery Barn Teen Avalon Bed

I love and appreciate getting feedback from you guys, and a lot of you said, “more pictures of the new house.” Most rooms are not exactly “done” but I did throw together a guest room that I LOVE in anticipation of summer house guests. As you can imagine, some of those hotly awaited arrivals did not make it to my doorstep. I was beyond hyped to have my Chicago bestie stay with me last week, but sadly his flight from…

Full Tour Of Our First House

Full Tour First House

Want to space out and look at some photos and pretend school isn’t closed due to coronavirus? Same. As you may know, we recently sold out first house and moved to our second and hopefully forever house. I say that because I am never moving again until my husband and I move back to an apartment in Manhattan after our kids go to college. When we moved into our first house, we had one child and a dog. This time,…
