24fef1c6d991afb89f47ce60315d568e3 of my favorite things all in one. snow. outdoors. modern.


outdoors or in.


the concept of indoor / outdoor living pulls at my heartstrings.

indoors or out.

i love the light, look and feel of a lush greenhouse, and the fact that you truly can’t tell if this space is indoor or out makes it so inviting {especially for entertaining!}

neutral hue’s rustic vs. modern event at west elm.

west elm rustic tablescape

we could not have had more fun at west elm atlanta for our rustic vs. modern tabletop event. there are so many pieces that blend our aesthetics perfectly, the pairings couldn’t have been more different and we love this about their mix. here’s a peek at my rustic tabletop for the holidays, and you can pop over to my heirloomed blog to see my styleboard and favorite picks, too!


toddler bed. don’t say it’s so.


so it is not so, yet – but i know it is looming at some point in the next year [ maybe pushing it].  but this one sure seems like a little inspiration of dreamy black + white that will translate perfectly into her current nursery scheme.

[cozy] pillow perfection


faux fur is all the rage now that the cooler weather is upon us.  and if you did not realize yet, anything with the shades of a lead pencil sketch seem to be my thing, + the shades of this pillow are no exception.

woodburning stove.

i grew up with a woodburning stove in our living room. probably not the norm, but it was to us. that little cast iron number could sure put out some heat and i love the black contrast and rustic design interest it brings to our family home.

golden plumes.

i love bringing a little bit of the outdoors inside, and this pillow of golden feathers is the perfect mix of simple and luxe all in one.

this week we’re “going gold” for national childhood cancer awareness month. click here to learn more about CURE Childhood Cancer.

existing from aidan gray.

i have so long been a fan of aidan gray‘s original collection – in all it’s worn and throwback glory. the woven detail of this christopher salon chair from layla grayce is reminiscent of a plantation chair styling, with the comfort of simple cushioning – perfect for about any room in my house.

new from aidan gray

aidan gray / zinc doormy heart is still skipping a beat after seeing the reveal of the new aidan gray chair collection over at zinc door – this hom marx occaisional chair one is one of my absolute favs with its curvacious + mid century lines.


white on white

some like ornate, some like minimal. for me it is about the perfect balance of minimal + serene, calm + peaceful

white on white.

my version of white on white still adds in elements of rustic wear and tear.

just a pure + simple fondness for white.


barn chic.

my own personal style is certainly barn chic and i am swooning over the fabulous elle decor spread on ellen & portia’s beautiful home.

clear winner.

i’m hard pressed to not like something with a rustic rope handle, even when paired with this more modern lucite piece.
