Let’s: Talk About Art (Nudes & Kids)

March 2, 2015


choosing nude artwork for your home

Let’s … talk about art. Specifically nudes. I like them in the bedroom and bathrooms. I’m sure there’s a Freud joke in here somewhere. I’m looking for a pair to go over my bed, on a wall I’m about to paint navy, that will be seen from the door to the bedroom and partially in […]

The Story of The Chairs

April 14, 2014


Almost a year ago, Ally from From the Right Bank did an unbelievable chair makeover. It haunted me. Once I knew we were moving into my grandmother’s house, the haunting got worse. Classic mid-century chairs in a killer leopard velvet? The perfect fit into my vision for this house? It had to be done. Finding […]

Imperfect House Tour: Benjamin’s Room

Comments Off on Imperfect House Tour: Benjamin’s Room

When your boy-kid is seven (and a half, MOMMY), you really just want his room to (a) have enough space to play in, (b) eventually be able to handle a sleepover, and (c) contain the monstrous amount of toys, tiny pieces, books, and balls that come along with the boy tornado.  I used to hate Polly […]

Imperfect House Tour: Leah’s Room

February 18, 2014

1 Comment

One of the things I wanted to do for each kid’s room was surprise them with something special – just for them. A small HGTV moment, if you will. Leah is twelve, almost thirteen now, so I knew this room would grow with her into her teen years, and I wanted it to have some […]

An Imperfect House Tour: Kitchen & Breakfast Area

February 13, 2014


If I were a better blogger, I’d wait until everything is just perfect and perfectly styled to share pictures of the new house. But, instead of a better blogger, I’m an impatient one these days, so, you get some pictures that are not perfect. What you do get is a sense of how we are […]

Project House: Living Room Inspiration

December 3, 2013


This house has a history. It’s raised three boys (in two bedrooms), hosted friends and family for holidays and dinner parties and cocktail parties, and seen era after era pass by outside its windows. Though its roots are firmly mid-century, I wanted to bring an updated touch to it.  The approach I’m planning on taking […]

Comments Off on Snow Whoring

So, winter has arrived here for a few days. It is dark and rainy and legitimately cold (for Texas) and it’s all hot soups, warm socks, and every jacket you’ve ever wanted to wear PUTALLOFTHEMONRIGHTNOW. Also a scarf. Today was also the kickoff of the interior demolition phase of Project House, so things kind of […]

Project House: Master Bedroom Inspiration!

November 22, 2013


I spend a LOT of time in my bedroom. My office, for all intents and purposes, is my side of the bed. I mean, if you’re going to work in your jammies or yoga pants (ahem), you might as well be all out comfortable, right? Right. In years past, my bed has been dressed in […]

Project House: Master Bathroom Inspiration

Comments Off on Project House: Master Bathroom Inspiration

It’s almost time to start the “fun” part of the project – dressing the house. In preparation for this part of the party, I’ve been collecting images that serve as the inspiration for each particular room. Not every picture is an image of a room it corresponds to. Case in point: this image has become […]

A Vision for Bed

October 7, 2013

Comments Off on A Vision for Bed

I remember when Sundays were languid. When the gentle light of morning was what woke me and the softness of sheets was what kept me. When thoughts were unconnected while a lazy foot sought out a cool spot to enjoy just outside the sheets – and then sought another when that one no longer soothed. […]
