Me on the phone with my dad last night...Are you and mom coming down for the weekend?
me YAY..Dad, it's project weekend!
He walked right into that one:)
We are taking the trim work from the entry into the living room, hanging a new bamboo blind in the eating area and oh.. wait till you see what I took off the side of the road last night. Nope, I'm not kidding, and it's going to be fabulous!
I'll be spending my weekend in sweats, and these are kinda cute. here
A family gathering - the scheme behind Tory Burch's spring collection. Shot at her home, photographer Tina Barney captures Tory's home, the essence of her line and a family occasion you'd wish to be a part of.
Behind the scene's with Tina Barney can been seen here.
I have a very strong connection to the south. Pretty sure in another life I lived in one of those imposing antebellum homes. Don't even ask where this comes from- But when we lived in South Carolina, and I visited Charleston, something tugged on my heart.
I came upon this darling and interesting home that survived the fires of 1838. It is known to the original builder as the Juliana Dupre house. Well, of course it is-
It's fresh, bright, modern and traditional. It honors it's roots and at the same time it is brought in to today. The tree lined walk way, I can't even tell you how charming these are..it's a little glimpse into someones world. Ah.. I'm so having a day dream moment right now.
When we visited Calistoga, CA one night while having dinner, a stunning bride happened through the room, her small and intimate wedding reception rooms away. I was completely taken by the natural look she had, hair loose and flowing, a simple + beautiful dress.. very true to the location. I happened to come across these photo's of a wedding also in Napa Valley and I am completely smitten.
To see the rest of the stunning photos and the sweet couple visit here-
By now you are probably incredibly tired of me talking about gallery walls. I have now taken mine down, as the sofa has moved walls. We are considering taking the trim work ( at a lower level through the living room ) so I won't need a big grouping in there.
I used to have this arrangement in the entry - it may be redone on the icky wall with all the humidifier and thermostat and doorbell yuck. Then I can cover it.
