Dropping All The Balls In the Air.

People ask me often “how do you do all that is on your plate?” And the answer is- I don’t know and sometimes, I fail miserably at it! Like today- I thought I would have time to post WHILE photographing our new office BUT I am currently busy holding up hardware for a shot because I did not have time to install it yet.  Basically, I’m a hot mess. Where do all the hours in my day go?  #whereserin #peekaboo #photoshopmagic

I’ll post this afternoon or tomorrow morning instead- promise :)

Awesome Summer Giveaway with Dear Keaton!

When it comes to brands that become EOS sponsors I am picky. I always want to make sure that the brands I align myself with represent not only my aesthetic taste but also offer products I actually love and would happily use in my own home or for clients.  Dear Keaton has been with us since their inception and today they are celebrating their fist anniversary of being in business!  I am delighted to celebrate with them, as I know as a female small business owner how hard it is and how much work it takes to keep things moving forward!  So I rounded up some of my favorite items from their site, in both neutrals and blues ( my favorite colors) and check the bottom of the post for an AWESOME giveaway sure to make your summer a little better (and boozier)! :)

Their theme of “resort living everyday” works especially well as we move into the summer months!

Fashion Friday: Red Hot!

left / right

Here is Boston it went from 50 degrees and rainy to sunny and 94 degrees in a matter of five days. Apparently, we no longer have spring here #helloglobalwarming.  As we say in Boston, it’s been a SCORCHAHHHH.

So now that I’m pulling out all my summer clothes at a rapid clip, I have found that I am really feeling red this season.  In small doses (stripes) and larger ones too (dresses).  From bold orange-red to a more muted earth tone, I think it’s the color of the summer for 2017.  It pairs so brilliantly with denim and camel/nude tones– and a tan (faux or real). So together with Nordstrom I pulled together a mix of looks using this tone in a few variations from casual to dressy.

I ADORE this top- paired with distressed denim, cool wedges and spunky earrings (and don’t forget the festive clutch) you’ve got the perfect summer evening look.

The Season For Outdoor Dining!

I get sooooooooo excited when it turns time to eat outside. I just adore alfresco dining- be it at home or when out to eat. Seeing as we get out a lot less than we used to now that we have Henry, entertaining on our quaint back patio will be more frequent this summer for sure.

Melamine table wear is essential for patio dining (and also an excellent choice for indoor dining too- especially with little ones).  And the advances in melamine style-wise has been crazy amazing in the past couple years. I spotted these marble patterned ones at Pier 1 and designed this whole tablescape around them– it’s elegant, rustic and all shatterproof!  I think I need to make this whole situation happen for my own house STAT!  Using real flatware and linen napkins makes an outdoor table feel substantial even when everything else is acrylic.

Inspiration Files: The Fox Group

I saw this kitchen on Instagram last week and absolutely loved it and needed to know more about the people behind it- turns out its from a design-build firm called The Fox Group in Salt Lake City (I feel like there is a lot of good design coming out of that area!)  I absolutely love the blend of rustic and refined here:

The inset wood cabinetry really stands out as well as the special custom details on the paitned cabinets (and cool hardware. And lights. And everything else.)
