One of my favorite ways to bring fresh spring style into my home is with potted greenery, like succulents and neutral toned orchids. I found this fantastic resin clamshell at my local Home Goods, and knew it would be the perfect container for a simple planter with a high end, designer look.
One of the first things I like to do as soon as the weather permits is refresh my front porch planters. It’s such an easy way to add some color and cheer, even before the rest of the gardens come alive. I have five easy tips that I have learned along the way that I’d love to share!
The time has come to put away the winter scents and bring out the fresh spring newness! I have launched three new candle fragrances that I’m so excited about!! Basil & Linden Blossom is a cool citrus that blends with fresh herbs and amber, Spring Rain is a delightful fresh floral that combines with a warm white musk, and Cucumber Mint is a soft, subtle and reminiscent of a relaxing afternoon at the spa. They make perfect baby and bridal shower gifts – tis the season!!

One of my favorite things to do in the evening when it’s cold out (or not cold, let’s be honest) is to cozy up in bed way early, and watch a movie (or Bravo as the case may very well be). I try and make my bedroom feel as luxurious and pampering as a room at a boutique hotel, and making sure my nightstand is stocked with a few necessities is essential in making this happen.
The kitchen is the heart of the home, and ours is no exception. We were so lucky that the previous owners took such great care and attention to detail when customizing the kitchen. It was perfect for the most part, but there was one thing I decided to update – the range hood.
One of the first furniture DIY projects I ever did was this little nightstand. A huge pet peeve of mine are nightstands that offer no practical storage. This had great bones to it with a pull out drawer as well as open storage space underneath. That being said, it needed some serious love.
There is something so magical about an outdoor living space decorated for the holidays. And since we are experiencing crazy warm temperatures, this outdoor tree has gotten quite a lot of attention this season!
Black “Lacquer” Secretary Desk
I spotted this desk at a local auction, and knew it would be the perfect fit for a small wall nook in my office. I loved the glass doors on the top that allow for showcasing pretty things, but the drawers on the bottom were perfect for use as storage for guests since the room doubles as a bedroom. It looked to be in very bad shape cosmetically, but it was structurally sound, so I bid low and got it for $25!
While for some a holiday mantel is important in terms of hanging a stocking, for me, my excitement at having my first home with a fireplace mantel since childhood means endless decorating possibilities. First, the mantel itself is a piece I am in awe of. When we moved into our house, I knew that the mantel wasn’t original, so it had to go.
