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 :: 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


10 Best :: Office Spaces

As I type away at my slightly-too-high dining table, with spindles from my wooden dining chair digging into my back, I’m thinking that today’s round up might just be the most envy-inducing one yet. If you’re not up to speed, our team is currently counting down to the day we move into our new office… read more


Monochromatic Monday :: Rose & Indigo

On Saturday night, we had a casual little dinner party, and as my friend Lauren scanned our almost-entirely beige, cream and white living room, she posed the question: when you want to move beyond your beloved neutrals, what’s your go-to splash of color? I thought about it for a second, and realized that although I love touches… read more


Monochromatic Monday :: Summer Stargazing

Growing up, each summer I spent a month at sleep-away camp in Wimberley, Texas. Reuniting with my camp friends was the single thing I looked most forward to all throughout the school year, and I still cherish all the memories I made during those summers… one of my favorites being the overwhelmingly star-speckled night sky,… read more


My Life, Styled :: Patriotic Prints

Happy (almost) Fourth of July!  If you were following along last year, you might remember me waxing poetic about my great love for this most patriotic of holidays.  It’s such a stress-free, no fuss holiday… and any celebration that requires meals on the grill, adult beverages and the great outdoors is fine by me! We are in… read more


Monochromatic Monday :: Waterfront Fourth

Raise your hand if the Fourth of July is your favorite holiday (if you just raised your hand behind your computer, give yourself a gold star). Even though I have a mid-July birthday, there’s nothing I look forward to quite like Independence Day. And if you take the holiday as seriously as I do, chances… read more


Monochromatic Monday :: Summer at Sea

This weekend marked the first few days that have actually felt like summer to me, and thanks to temperatures in the mid-nineties, I’ve got a mild sunburn to prove it. People gripe about the heat in Texas, but as a native I have to say that I relish every moment of blazing sun (crazy, I know). My… read more


Bring It Home :: Choosing Favorites

I (Cristina) was talking with a friend recently about the challenges of choosing a color palette when you’re sharing a space. Whether you’re cohabiting with friends, a significant other or your whole family, it can be quite the feat to design a space that will please everyone. My advice? When in doubt, choose blue. Forty percent… read more


Transformed :: Take a Seat

Claire here, and if the warm weather is inspiring you to get outdoors and be creative, this cheery DIY project is for you. It’s a bit more involved than my gold brick bookends from last month, but the end result is one that’ll totally transform an entryway or cozy nook in your house. Two weeks ago… read more
