Today’s post is another installment of our Style Solutions series, and one that really struck a chord with all of us in the office.  This mom wrote us about her 12 year old daughter, Ellison,  who is having a bit of a tough time in middle school (who didn’t, right?) On top…

Scheming: Six Spring Tablescapes

I rarely get the chance to entertain, but when I do- I love pulling together a really fun tablescape. Someday I hope to have a big enough storage space to house lots of fun options of dinnerware, accessories and glassware! Until then, I just have to scheme in Photoshop! (via Pink Pagoda)…

Our Guest / Henry’s Bath Re-Renovation

The re-enamel job was terribly done and after about two years it started chipping and cracking. Now sheets of it are coming off the tub in 2″ sections and it looks horrible (and is not super safe with a little one around). And once it’s been re-enameled, it can’t be done again. So now I have to rip out the tub and tile to replace it, which means also demoing the the old archway framing the tub, which means replacing the floor.  It’s a domino effect! Luckily, my custom vanity and top can stay, as well as the new toilet.  So while we’re doing all this, I figured let’s give this bath a facelift too. I still love how it looks, but now that it’s mostly Henry’s bath, I want to make it a little more masculine.

I love this art (print from Artfully Walls, frame is antique) and am kind of using it as a jumping off point for the design.

Dream Destinations: Heckfield Place

As I think through some places I want to travel to for my 40th birthday this summer, I began thinking about the English countryside.  I read somewhere that Harry and Meghan spent a little “holiday” here at Heckfield Place (BTW, what do we think of the name Archie?), so I had to check it out. And boy am I glad I did. This is the place my English countryside dreams are made of!
