What’s New for September :: All About Style

I love everything about this time of year. There is something about getting all the oversized September issues from my favorite style mags in the mail that makes me feel like the Fall season is just around the corner. And with spending the last part of the summer nesting with our new baby, Greta Scott,… read more

How To :: Style the Coffee Table

Happy Monday, folks! We’re kicking off the week with a much needed lesson in styling from one of our favorite interior designers in town, Ann Lowe Edgerton (though you might remember her from this gorgeous entertaining story). With an impressive roster of both commercial and residential clients, Ann knows a thing or two about designing spaces that… read more

Weekend Notes

Is it true? Could it really be the last weekend of summer? Sure, temps will still hit triple digits here for a few more weeks, but once I spot that first kid with a backpack headed to school on Monday morning, the mental shift will have begun as I realize it’s time to set some goals… read more

10 Best :: Backpacks

The backpack: not only is it the iconic item at the forefront of back-to-school buzz, but this season, it’s also a must-have accessory for fashion lovers of any age. So even though we may not be counting down to the first day of school around here, we’re still coveting those trendy everyday packs for toting our laptops, workout… read more

Bring it Home :: Martinique & Malachite, Oh My!

Bright whites, modern lines and an edgy touch may be my M.O., but there’s something about a powder room that emboldens me to make daring choices. I’m always tempted to paint the walls a glossy black, or wallpaper them with a loud print — choices I would never make in the rest of my home. And if there’s one… read more

From Camille’s Kitchen :: Golden Beet & Cherry Salad

While I eat my fare share of salads all year around, they really shine when summer produce reaches its peak and I can choose from the bounty of sweet melons, heirloom tomatoes and an abundance of herbs at the market — often, a squeeze of lemon, drizzle of extra-virgin olive oil, salt and freshly ground… read more

If you (or any of your friends) have children, you’ve most likely been in a room with one of Rebecca Finell’s designs. The iconic green grass drying rack she created is on the windowsill of practically every new mom we know. Rebecca’s already built and sold her first product company, Boon, and after taking a… read more

At the Table :: A Whimsical Dessert Party

August’s table design was inspired by being home and the friends that make it feel like it’s where you belong. Upon my arrival to Austin at the end of last year, the wonderful Lauren Smith Ford insisted I meet her friend, Kim West — the designer behind Well Dressed Space and the owner of this killer dining room. Lauren… read more

Pretty Simple :: French Braid Bun

French braids bring back so many childhood memories… I had hair down my back growing up and I pretty much lived in some kind of braid. I love how sophisticated and “grown up” this updated version of the french braid looks. Once you master this classic braid, you can really have fun by trying it… read more

How to Cook With Your Kids

When I was pregnant, I read the book Bringing Up Bébé about the benefits of the French parenting style. In one scene, the author recounts an experience where she watched one of her friends bake a cake with her 3-year-old daughter — a relaxing weekend tradition that is de rigueur in many French households. Ever since, I’ve carried around a… read more

Essentials for A Modern Bath

The bathroom is the spot where I start and end the day — blow drying my hair in the morning as I consider the day ahead, putting on makeup before I head out the door, and then in the evening, winding down as I sink (finally!) into the tub. Luckily, since the bathroom is such a small spot… read more
