Masculine and sophistocated




I love these dark and manly spaces.. the black paneling and shelves is so yummy!  It is like a winter retreat.. with the dark wood and clean lines.

Holiday entry..


I love this door with the boxwoods!  So simple and sweet!  Even though it is not officially December yet the Holidays are upon us!  I am excited to get into the full swing of things around here and see if I can catch that holiday spirit.

What do you do to prepare for the holidays?  I would love some tips on how you keep it all going!
Thank you all for your sweet birthday wishes!

Getting ready to add a little green




 It's time for some, so I thought we could see some very clean simple Christmas decorating ideas.  I like to keep it pretty simple around our house for Christmas.  We always have 2 trees though, one for the kids one for the mom!

Happy decorating!

Black in the kitchen



I am sure that many of you much like me, spent A LOT of time in the kitchen this week. I realized how completely not functional mine is!!!  I cannot wait to get to fixing that problem!  Next year the kitchen is in my plans. 

I am curious what do you like the best about your kitchen?  What is the most functional?

Jill Sharp Brinson Loft...


When I came across these pictures of Jill's husband's studio I was smitten!  Just like I was when I saw her house in House Beautiful.  The natural light is just amazing and the mix of vintage is perfection!

Happy Tuesday!

Happy Thanksgiving week...


I hope everyone is getting ready for a relaxing week of over indulgence in comfort food.  I know I am we are one turkey dinner down with 2 more to go!  I had every intention of posting some pictures of the almost complete bathroom today but hosting dinner and house guests took most of the extra time this weekend.  So maybe tomorrow.  I am excited at the progress and more excited to be close to finishing something!
Wishing you a lovely Monday!

workspace



This space seems so easy on the eyes simple and clean where you could just open up the laptop and get some things done.  It is nothing like my desk that is covered in papers and misc little things that my kids have made and given to me. 

I love the finish on the table and the key is the fresh flowers I think!

guest quarters


We have guests this weekend, and while I wish the guest room looked like this it might be TOO comfortable - if you know what I mean.  This is so subtle and inviting with the soft layers of grey, linen and white.  
Are you having guests for the holidays?  How do you welcome your guests?

I always try to get the house to a normal level of cleanliness and fluff the pillows.  I typically spray the sheets with lavender water and  put fresh fluffy towels in the guest bath.  

Wishing you a wonderful weekend!

this week I am loving..





It is funny there are some weeks when inspiration eludes me and then there are some where it is everywhere and I cannot keep it straight!  I am absolutely loving everything here!  I love vintage chairs and their time worn look, the lovely layers of grey from Atelier de Campagne, and Lauren at Pure Style Home's new textile line.  
Do you ever find too much inspiration?  I like to take mine and store it away for a day when I am feeling a little out of sorts and use it to get me back on track!

Shop greige in Renovation Style!!



I was so excited to find out that Marie's house was featured in Renovation Style this month!  A few months back I posted pictures of her beautiful home that was featured in Capital Style magazine.  Well, after that she was contacted by Renovation Style and her home has been photographed once again!  I am so excited for her- she did an amazing job!  One of our art pieces is noted in the magazine which is so exciting for me too!  

     
  Winter Stallion is one of my favorites! Photobucket

The olive branch



I love the look of cut tree branches inside.  The olive branch is one of my favorites with it's grey undertones.  I think I need to bring more greenery inside - I feel like I am lacking!  A large clear glass vase with them is going to look great in my bathroom.

The bathroom is on it's final days, I cannot wait for it to be finished!  Painting today and hopefully by the weekend we can use it after more than a month of work.

Also, today is the last day to enter the Lux Lampshade giveaway!!!

I am pretty sure this is meant for me!!!  I just saw it on Eloquence and I NEED it.  My husband said to me it won't work for our house maybe if we lived in a small town in the south of France.  I said can we move there so I can have one???
I love love it!

Hope you are having a wonderful Wednesday!  What is on your wish list for the holidays??

Kate Spade at home





It is so fun to see creative people in their homes.  Kate Spade's home is really fun and whimsical.  I love the use of artwork which seems to make a statement in every space.  The colors are bold and inspiring.

What do you think?
