Winter Vacation Essentials

Thursday, December 19th, 2013

I hope all of you are getting prepared to take some time off for the holidays. I sure am. I’m going to take a little hiatus until December 26th. This is the first time in seven years I have ever done this, but I hope you understand and will check back in before the new year! Until then, here are some essentials to pack up for your time away (or home!)


blush // luminizer // pajamas // slippers //  chargers // wine // hot chocolate // suitcase // scarf // gloves // books: Me Before You : The Good House : The Signature of All Things // cookie recipe

Mind the Mat

Wednesday, December 18th, 2013

I don’t mind a fluffy dusting of snow, but what I do mind is the drippy, wet mess that gets dragged into the house in the aftermath. Already I’m sick of it and becoming best friends with my Swiffer.  Until we do the next phase of our renovation, I am without a mudroom and my entry is miniscule, so the salt and snow make their way into my house and drive me NUTS!  One thing that can help is a good doormat. I love how they look any time of year, but it’s especially nice during the winter holidays! Here’s a selection of some of the best ones I’ve found (including my own, #1):


1. // 2. // 3.  // 4. // 5. // 6. // 7. // 8. // 9. // 10. // 11. // 12. // 13.

OK, now off to shovel out of this mess! Can I consider this my workout for the day??

Sponsor Welcome: Elementarie

Thursday, November 14th, 2013

I warm welcome to new EOS sponsor Elementarie, a GREAT resource for gorgeous home decor, furniture and tabletop.  Here are some of my favorite items from their shop- take a peek!

This settee is classic and amazing while this little wire side chair is modern and feminine (and would be so cute pulled up to a vanity table!)

The mix of traditional and modern is great- like this console table in black and gold and brass side table.


Kinda DIE for this turquoise horse and starburst object – both so, SO good on a bookshslf or console (and I really like them together and either make a GREAT holiday gift!!!!)

A zebra bench and exotic print pillow.


A leather wrapped desk (I am kind of in love with this- it’s so good) and a cottage style side table in a bunch of colors!

Two kinds of chandeliers for two different style homes.


Wall decor in multiples- adore these mirror and antlers (mix ‘em together in one big installation!)

Team EGD’s Fall Wishlists!

Wednesday, October 23rd, 2013

There is so much going on in our office right now- not to mention the fact that we MOVED our office and are trying to get it set up! We’ve had so many photo-shoots, book layout sessions, project meetings and, thank goodness, laughs. None of this is possible without Lindsey and Allison, who make it feasible for me to maintain this blog AND my business while trying to finish up this book!  They each have amazing taste, and I wanted to keep sharing their personal wishlists with you- after all, I am hardly the end all be all of style.

Here’s what the ladies are craving for fall (and some are great gift ideas!)


Lindsey’s List: 1. // 2. // 3. // 4. // 5. // 6. (25% off your order of $150+ today!) // 7. // 8. // 9. // 10.


Allison’s List: 1. // 2. // 3. // 4. // 5. // 6. // 7. // 8. // 9. // 10.
