Shelter Loves....

Hip Hooray for Friday! (wink wink). I'm looking forward to a carefree weekend. I don't have much for plans, I will be working in my yard planting flowers + veggies and kicking back at the beach! I could also stand to fold (never ending) a little laundry and squeeze in a workout or two but besides that I am looking forward to some needed down time. I had a productive week and my new assistant that is exciting!! Welcome Lindsey, thrilled to have you on board! Here's my love list for this week:

1. 'Tis the season for having guests. I love creating a welcoming bedside table for myself and others. This lamp and table work beautifully together.
2. I won't share the exact one (out of privacy) but I selected a Linda Colletta piece last week for one of my clients!! I am LOVING her work!!!
3. is a work in progress...
4. How cute is Joni Mitchell? Stay tuned for a movie about her life.
5. I love this entire look and may need to wear it this weekend or in the studio next week. I own a denim shirt and tulle skirt, so it's an easy outfit. Her hair is gorgeous btw!!
6.  I mentioned I need to plant some flowers, pink Astilbe are on my shopping list.
7.  I want three of these in various colors from J. Crew. I would layer them over everything!!

Have a wonderful weekend!! xo

Cottage Love #40

Wow, Have I really posted 40 amazing cottages on my blog?? I hope to share forty more!

It's my favorite time of year! There is a certain energy about the summer that feels "care free". Don't get me wrong, I still run around and work like crazy but weekends are all about lazy days on the beach and evenings are homework free and consist of causal cookouts with a little more rose!! ;)

I love Jenny Wolf's restrained, cohesive interiors..Here's a peek at her beautiful Hamptons home. Yes please on that pool!!

Hello. I missed you all this week. Blogging is actually my little slice of peace each day. It's escapism at it's best and this week was coo coo. I love a Saturday with no plans and that is exactly what I am having. My kids are eating m + m's and watching cartoons but hey sometimes a Mommy needs a break and if that is what it takes, then so be it!!

Here is the latest and greatest:

1. These colorful tassel earrings would perfectly complete a simple outfit. I am not afraid of color, especially during the Summer months.
2. It's been a tough week all around. The news has been horrific. We are bombarded with differing opinions daily. I just can't surround myself with what I perceive to be negative ones. I like this sentiment and most of the Dalai's thoughts. 
3. School is out, so beach season has officially begun. Speaking of peace, I feel so calm by the ocean. ( I am on the hunt for the best cast cover for my daughter!!)
4. I never seem to tire of blue and white stripes or high gloss navy!!! I love the design of Reese's Draper James shop.
5. I will have a fun second beach car someday. This Bronco would do!!
6. How adorable is this tunic dress?? That and this watch are on my wish list!!
7. I spent about 16 hours pulling a design together for a nursery this adorable is this one??? By Emily Henderson

In the kitch!

 I've been neck deep in fabulous design work with wonderful clients and to top it off my poor little Emerson fell off the monkey bars and broke her arm pretty badly. (right before swim season to boot). I'm staying positive and wanted to share this girly gorgeous kitchen with y'all. I've been eyeing pink all day while I scout furniture for an exciting project. (I'll be sharing more on this mid-July). And that stove?? Yes please! In my next home. Design By: Laurel Burleson Interiors. Photos: Alyssa Rosenheck

OKL - the home tours continued....

One King's Lane is killing it lately with not only their product but their home tours. My latest favorite is of Sue De Chiara's fabulous home. Her mix of color, texture and accessories packs the perfect amount of punch in her family home. She also has a great blog and shop - The Zhush.  Lauren Muse helped her with the project...
Speaking of projects I have a slew of photoshoots lined up for the summer!! Can't wait to share the goodness..

Summer blooms...

via Amy Stone
I finally got around to planting the pots in front of my home this weekend. I went with beautiful, lush, blue hydrangeas. The full green leaves and large blooms won me over. The best part? I'm going to transfer them to the garden out front at the end of the summer! Hydrangeas pack a punch and when large enough make for a great cutting flower to bring indoors. They are also fairly easy to maintain. I was tired of them at one point but my love for these classic beauties has returned. (plus they remind me of New England during the warm weather) and it doesn't get much better than that! Hope your week is off to a great start...Mondays aren't so bad during the summer months.

Friday already?? This week really did fly..I could use a few more hours to work! I'm feeling inspired lately, the change of seasons can do that. Here is what I'm eyeing! Hope your weekend is as fabulous as you!

1. Copper but copper and brass?? Even better. These lights are beautiful.. Now I need to find a place to use them..A powder room perhaps??? Or a three season porch?? Find them here.  I especially love that they are from a decommissioned boat!!! Design that tells a story is so interesting and usually spot on. (p.s. I am also warming up to shiny nickel again. There is something very clean about it)

2. Julia? Gorgeous all the time. I am still on a huge stripe kick this summer. You should see the adorable shirt I picked up yesterday! It'll be perfection with white jeans. I posted it on insta.

3. This is in my cart! I think I need the yellow or both!!

4. Okay, so I am always on the hunt for rugs for my wonderful clients. This is beautiful. It is Chinese and referred to as a Baotou Rug. 

5. All too often we put others before ourselves. To remain balanced and happy you really need to put yourself first sometimes..Remember that! Moms are especially guilty of this. kiss kiss.

6. I love a few things about this image but I'm really focusing on the brilliant idea to hide the tv, the hinged door conceals the entire shelving system when closed! This is a common design question, to hide or not hide the television!!??
