Monochromatic Monday :: Welcoming Wildflowers

This past weekend, I headed 3 hours north of Austin to spend a relaxing weekend at my friend’s gorgeous ranch. Since we officially welcomed spring last week, it should have been no surprise that the drive was speckled with patches of wildflowers… but for some reason, that first sighting of bluebonnets and cardinals had me… read more


Monochromatic Monday :: Pot of Gold

While I’ve got to admit that I’m not the world’s biggest St. Patty’s Day fan, I am completely, 100% onboard with any excuse to use liberal doses of the color green… especially when paired with gold for (in my opinion) the world’s prettiest color combination. An emerald and gold palette inspired our new studio’s design… read more


Monochromatic Monday :: London Blues

The thought entered my mind a few weeks ago and I can’t get it out: I want to paint my bedroom blue. Really, really dark blue. “You know, like a sort of England-in-the-sixties, rock-and-roll-hotel sort of blue,” I told a friend. “That could be… cool,” she said cautiously, then added, “you know dark colors make… read more


Monochromatic Monday :: Bittersweet Grapefruit

Nature gives us a bounty of citrus fruits at this time of year for a reason: there’s nothing more invigorating to winter palates than biting into a Clementine slice or squeezing a bright burst of lemon juice over grilled fish or meat. Lately, I’ve felt particularly energized by the sweet-tart hit of grapefruit as an… read more


Monochromatic Monday :: From Paris, With Love

Can you think of anything more romantic than spending February 14th in Paris? As a city that oozes amour 365 days a year, just being in the City of Light on Valentine’s Day has got to be pure magic. Admittedly, I don’t have much planned for this coming Friday, but I figured I’d sneak some Parisian… read more


Monochromatic Monday :: Sheer Elegance

There’s just something about sheer, featherweight textiles that illustrates elegance in the most simple way. And with spring right around the corner, these sweet fabrics and frocks are certainly top of mind (along with the vision of gentle beams of sunlight making their way through sheer draperies…) Picture that special set of lace-y lingerie or… read more


Monochromatic Monday :: A Boho Home

We all love a gorgeous, well-designed space — a home where every detail is thoughtful, intentional and purposeful, and not a single item appears to be out of place. But then there’s the opposite — you know, those spaces that look effortlessly unpredictable and anything but “designed”. In those homes, great style appears to have… read more


Monochromatic Monday :: Plum Pretty

This cold and wet January weather has me wishing for a pair of good rain boots and ever since I saw that pair of plum Hunters on pinterest I haven’t been able to get them out of my mind! Wouldn’t those look sharp with a camel coat and black leggings? This particular purple feels fresh… read more


Monochromatic Monday :: Eat Your Greens

It’s the first Monday of the new year — that’s something to celebrate, now isn’t it? I find myself craving clean, energy-giving food, making extra time to connect with the people I love and actually embracing a full to-do list instead of wishing for more downtime. Guess that’s what the long holiday break is supposed… read more


Monochromatic Monday :: A Rockin’ New Year

My New Year’s Eve outfits (along with my chosen method of ringing it in) have ranged from glitzy LBD’s to flannel pajamas, and since this year’s plans include a swanky dinner downtown followed by a champagne-popping party… well, my look will definitely include a little sparkle. I’m planning to accessorize with the new rock pendant… read more
