Inspired by My Garden

IMG_1661

Last weekend we started planting some new things in our back garden beds and I fell in love with the combination of these blush Hellebore flowers mixed with some silvery greenery. It’s such a beautiful combination of colors that it inspired me to pull some home and personal items based on the combo!

A Dream Event Venue

My project manager Lindsey showed me this amazing place, The Barn at Flanagan Farm, an amazing event venue close to Portland, Maine and I just about died.  This spectacular barn and farmhouse, lovingly and painstakingly renovated by new owner Gail Landry (read more about the process here), is such a warm, gorgeous spot to celebrate some of life’s greatest moments. And what design inspiration too!

An Antiques Wonderland

I saw a story about Alex MacArthur’s home in Elle Decor and just HAD to look into it more. Alex is an antiques dealer/ guru in London and her home also serves as her shop and showroom! It’s the coolest concept! The whole place is like Disneyland for antique junkies like myself!  Just take a peek into this treasure trove and check out her website for current items for sale! You can also gather a lot of decorating inspiration from every corner of her home!

Plain + Simple

Fall brings with it an amazing variety of colors- but sometimes simple is best.  When life is crazy (as mine has been), soothing palettes make me feel calmer (hence, my new all- neutral bedroom, which I am going to shoot for you soon- I promise!)  But that translates into clothing too- black, white and camel is such a fabulous, classic, streamlined way to dress AND decorate.  Just check out these pairings for inspiration…
