Guest Room Reveal

I’m so happy to finally share my guest room design with you. When I started this project, I had plans to bring in a new modern bed, which would have altered the esthetic considerably. I decided instead of starting from scratch with a whole new design, I kept the bed and designed around it. The art on either side of the bed is from my DIY Project. That art project was the basis for my color scheme. I bought the side tables from West Elm, and got some frames and other miscellaneous decor items from Target. Note the Nate Berkus collection urn and white sea urchin – I am in LOVE with these pieces!
Also – scroll down to find out how you can donate to Hurricane Sandy relief, and GET something in return!

There are some trees with seeds that only grow after a fire. Their seeds are completely sealed with a resin that have to be physically melted off by a great fire in order to propagate. So to do we as humans, gain wisdom only after great pain and suffering.*
A month ago (and one day) I lost my sister and best friend to cancer. I am still completely gutted and broken. But, I’m also so so grateful to have had felt the love that now brings me so much heartbreak. ❤️ I am so inspired by her - and I will forever live my life to honor her memory. Miss you sis ❤️

French. Toast. Egg. Bake. Save this recipe for a weekend or holiday brunch - it’s SO good and fool-proof! I’m not even a sweet person and I love it. The pecans are a non-negotiable IMO - I get honey bourbon vanilla pecans for this and it is just heavenly. Enjoy!

Peak Autumn beauty 🍂 These two pictures were taken only 10 days apart ~ look how much the color has changed! I love to go for a walk and admire all the gorgeous foliage - so much fun. This side of my house is officially my favorite: a mix of shrubs including hydrangea, blue spruce, beautyberry, euonymus, pine, boxwood, burning bush, viburnum, smokebush, and you can even see the Japanese maple peeking out from the backyard 🍂#fallfoliage #autumn
