Farmhouse Chic

I tend to lean towards the more eclectic pieces with bold colors and a bohemian vibe, but I'm going to try the farmhouse chic look on for size (well, just in the post).  Let's combine some well loved pieces and mix with a modern touch. 

Last year, Matthew and I had a blast starting our first garden in our backyard. We started small with just tomatoes, herbs and a few types of peppers, but this year we plan to do much more. While looking into revamping our outdoor decor, I thought about how that look would translate indoors. Thus, farmhouse chic! 

These two iron baskets may have been used for gathering all kinds of goodies from the garden, but I would probably fill them with magazines or towels for the guest room.

I love the idea of a farmhouse table with these colorful chairs to add a touch of flair to the room. When the day comes that we have some room for one of these it will be my first new purchase, mark my words! 

My mom just updated her sunroom with a new table that I just have to share.

She has more chairs coming that will match the new ones on the left side. 

Until next time, Cheers!

Block It Out

A new year means making some simple changes around the house. What are some easy updates you can make that won't involve a painter, a contracter, and a few fights with your husband? Hum, let's see...

By adding new pillows to freshen things up, turning a garage sale steal into a game changer by way of gloss and fabric, and maybe even a pouf, you can transform your house in no time. 

I have a real respect for those designers that have their hands in single every bit of their creation. That's also why I have a new developed love for these hand-printed textiles right now. 

This Atlanta based company, Block and Brayer does it right with their bohemian patterns. 

Also out of Atlanta, Kari Fisher Design. Kari's pillows are one of a kind and she does all the hand blocking herself. 

I'm keeping an eye out for more one of a kind designs like these, and please share if you know of any to add.

Miami in Photos

Girls trip to Miami last weekend was a perfect break from this yucky weather. Good food, delicious cocktails, and lots of rays to soak up. Oh, and we went to a football game. 

First dinner spot The Forge

Quick stop by Versace's old crib

Welcome to The Webster. They only shop I know with their very own full bar.

And I leave you with this...a bunny on a leash.

Happy Friday!
