Monochromatic Monday :: Organic Thanksgiving

I spent some time planning my Thanksgiving table over the weekend, looking through my Pinterest boards and considering my color palette options. I thought about a moody plum & gold option…and played with the idea of pumpkin…but the simple look of kraft paper and organic greens (mixed with a touch of gold) just feels so […]

DIY :: Neon Pine Cone Placecard Holder

Happy Friday! Jenn here, with a fun and easy DIY placecard project. Our post earlier this week on modern hostess styles received such a great response that we started thinking about other fun ways to modernize a Thanksgiving table. I had been planning a gold pine cone placecard holder when Camille had the idea to […]

Monochromatic Monday :: Worn Leather

When I look at the pieces from my wardrobe that are versatile enough to transition from season-to-season, I realize that the camel colored leather items are my most tried-and-true staples. Both light enough to work with summer whites and linens, yet reminiscent of a cognac sipped fireside, there’s no question that it’s the perfect accessory […]

Transformed :: Scaffolding to Table

Happy first-day-of-November, everyone! Two weeks ago, I (Claire) asked for your suggestions on which table I should make to convert my formal dining room into a functioning combination workspace/eating area. I was leaning towards a sawhorse style table, but after reading all the enthusiastic responses to the metal base table (option #3), I decided to make one […]

Round Up :: Best of Halloween

After weeks of non-stop party planning, pumpkin decorating and costume prep, we’re so excited that the scariest night of the year is just a day away.  Since we’ve been in full-on Halloween mode, we thought we’d share a round-up of our favorite spooky treats, creepy crafts and wickedly gorgeous table designs… figured it couldn’t hurt […]

Sponsor Love

October’s coming to a close, so thought I’d take a moment to show a little love to the amazing sponsors that help make this site possible! As y’all know, I work hard to make sure that our sponsors are the right fit with ads that look great on the site, and these guys couldn’t be […]

Weekend Notes

This week I’ve been giving some thought to the pressure we (I) sometimes put on ourselves to do it all. As I navigate these early days of motherhood and career, it can be hard not to feel like I’m constantly letting someone down, be it my team because I can’t be at every meeting and photo […]

Monochromatic Monday :: Salt and Pepper

When we hear the word “neutral” most of us tend to think about solid colors — usually white or some variation of beige. Jenn here, happy to share with you my latest discovery: most black and white prints can serve as neutrals, too! Lately I’ve been pairing my favorite black and white striped tee with […]

Featured In :: Bon Appetit!

Press mentions are always exciting, but being quoted in Bon Appétit? Definitely qualifies as a pinch-me-I-must-be-dreaming kind of moment. As one of my all-time favorite mags, I was thrilled when the editors asked me to weigh in with my go-to party dish. Find the feature in this month’s issue (the entire thing is fab.) And while you’re at […]

Weekend Notes

It is a gorgeous fall weekend here in Austin – sunny skies with just enough chill in the air to pull on a sweater over my shorts and head to the farmer’s market to stock up on ingredients for this salad. I love these rare weekends with no commitments on the agenda, when we can savor these […]

Transformed :: Sawhorse Table

Happy Thursday everyone, Claire here with my latest project dilemma. One of the many influences my job as an interior designer has had on my personal life is my constant desire to change and rearrange my own humble abode. I spend so much time creating spaces for others that it’s not unusual to find me pushing around […]
