Whether you’re attending a spring wedding, planning a seasonal dinner party or simply wandering outdoors in search of wildflowers, there’s no better time of year to surround yourself with… read more


Spring Lunch Under the Trees

It feels like it was just yesterday that we posted Timothy Corrigan’s out-of-this-world holiday entertaining style at the fabulous Château du Grand-Lucé. Five months later, the temperatures are steadily on the rise in the Loire Valley, and Timothy’s transitioning his parties from dinners by candlelight, to lunch in the garden. We caught up with the interior designer… read more


DIY :: Egg-Holder Place Cards

We’re big proponents of the place card — not only does it save your guests a game of musical chairs, but something about it is the perfect cherry-on-top to any place setting design. Above all, I love when a place card is both functional and decorative (remember these?)… and since Easter is all about setting… read more


Monochromatic Monday :: Coast to Coast

It’s that time of year again…when temperatures start to climb just enough to spur dreams of summer sunshine, and a little sand in between your toes while cradling a piña colada (or two). So, as I ditch my winter coats and recover my favorite pair of flip-flops from the (very) bottom of my closet, I can’t… read more

What’s New for April :: The Great Outdoors

It’s been a long winter…as the sun is starting to shine a bit brighter and the temperatures rise higher, we can’t help but open all the windows and joyfully let the light in! This month, we are saying bring on the Vitamin D and stepping outside to soak up the sun. We will share unique… read more


Bring It Home :: Hint of Mint

Sayonara polar vortex…it’s officially spring! This kitchen really captures the best of what spring has to offer. Its window backsplash lets in bright light and a view of the outdoors, and the woven basket lights hint at beach days and the promise of summer. I’m looking forward to cooking with a different lineup of fruits… read more


DIY :: Embroidered Felt Easter Eggs

Easter egg crafts hold a special place in my heart, right up there with Valentine’s Day card making. They’re low-pressure, great for kids, and best of all, they just scream spring! I’ve always loved the rustic and homemade look of felt balls, so for this project we used wool roving to make egg-shaped delights rather than the… read more


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 :: 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
