My First Decorating Job: The Rustic & Elegant Inspiration

It’s funny, but my first decorating job is kind of turning into a reoccurring series around here.  It comes at a good time as I haven’t really had time to do much with my own house now that photography season is full-swing and I’m back to being busier than busy!  I’ve created this inspiration board […]

Vintage Blues

I started thinking about (and taking pictures […]

Modern Farmhouse Spring Accessories and Decor

Spring Inspired

      Here in Indiana spring is temperamental.  For most of April spring has been here one day, and then replaced with snowflakes the next.  As May draws nearer, spring seems ready to stay around, and I could not be happier about that!       Spring always has me wanting to refresh my decor, […]

Spring Decorating: Pops of Blue

With a four-year-old in the house, the topic of “favorite color” comes up often.  Miss L. knows that my answer doesn’t ever change:  My favorite color is blue.  Light blue, dark blue, navy blue, aqua blue, turquoise…whatever.  I love them all.  She actually made me a card the other day with blue crayon scribbled artfully […]
