My Pretties

Hello my pretties, and Happy Halloween!  Halloween has changed so much since I was a child, we used to just carve out a pumpkin and leave it on the front stoop.  Nowadays, its seems like every other house in our area is decked out to the hilt in festive Halloween decor.  I have to confess, when it comes to decorating for the Holidays, I usually just go with the bare essentials...and then only because of my children!  But, some of the ideas I see are so fun and creative, it's hard not to get swept up in the "spirit".  Do you decorate your home for Halloween?  My front door is in the last image below...

Post Note:
I took the photo above on October 27th...but today, October 31, our front stoop looks more like Christmas!  We have no power and and no's like a Tim Burton movie around here.
Happy Holidays Halloween!

A Perfect Pairing

As much as I love using purple in my home's decor, my all time favorite color combo for interiors is classic blue and white.  I will never tire of the fresh and pulled together look these two colors achieve when paired together. The Lynn Morgan Design team, uses this pairing in the chic homes they style.  I really admire the whole portfolio of this company, but it's the blue and white rooms that always seem to draw me in.  What's your favorite color combo when decorating your place?


Cameo Appearance

According to those in the know over at, the cameo is making a big comeback with fashionistas this season.  There's something so sweet about a vintage cameo piece, I'm finding that I even like some of the newer, edgier ones as well.  This trend seems easy enough to get behind, as there are dozens of affordable options on etsy and ebay.  What do you think of all these cameos, do you have a preference for edgy or vintage classic?

Obsession Du Jour: Tyler Dawson Design

I've just finally caught up with all of the October and November shelter magazines...which could be an obsession du jour in and of itself.  Lately, all of the top home decor publications have really been knocking out of the park...did you see that purple apartment designed by Haynes Roberts in Elle Decor?! WOW!  Not to mention the great "Next Wave" article in House Beautiful dedicated to Tyler Dawson.  I've seen Ms. Dawson's amazing designs before, but never knew much about her.  I found her style picks in the article so fabulous that I just had to see more from her...blown.a.way! I'm literally obsessed with her whole portfolio, right down to the smallest detail.


Rustic Refined

Over the weekend we lit our first official fire of the season.  The mornings and evenings are now consistently chilly, and I'm not leaving the house without at least a coat or jacket for a while.  It's this time of year when my focus on beach and pool houses shifts over to mountain lodges and retreats.  Something about being surrounded by dramatic wooden beams and fireplaces along with fur throws and flannels seems to lessen the harsh reality of the cold months ahead.  This Big Sky, Montana house by the design team Lucas Studio holds all these warm elements and so much more.

I'm ready to throw in the towel on this about you? Thank goodness the weekend is almost here... but, given all the different activities my kids have on the schedule these next few days, I'm going to need some super hero powers to get through them all!  Wish us luck!
Have a great one~

In The Right Light

First it was the Sapien Bookcase that captured my eye, and now another modern, vertical and artful piece has fully won me over: the Akari Freeform Column Floor Lamp.  Between the soft light this fixture gives off, the tall sculptural quality and it's modern Asian vibe, I'm completely sold!  I can't wait to actually receive my new light and figure out which room will benefit from it's flattering glow. I'll keep you posted.
