3 Summer Looks


This is what I'd like to be wearing if I weren't growing a human! Yes, cute clothes are hard to come by these days. I think I'll just stick to a swimsuit and cover-up and let someone else look super cute in these outfits! 


Look 1: Ponte Peplum Top
Look 2: Edith A Miller Stripe Tank
Look 3: Orange Paisley Short

And while we're at it, J Crew really needs a maternity line! Just sayin'!

Bedding Love


Do you love the feeling of crawling into a fluffy, luxurious bed with plush linens? How can you not, right?! 
My Serena and Lily catalog came last week and I'm drooling over some of their bedding that's sure to give a cozy hotel feel. 


The Border Frame Duvets and Shams are so classic! Plus, they are sateen which makes them even softer! This is definitely on my list of things to purchase for the guest room! I love the detailing especially!


This grass green color has also caught my eye! So many colors to choose from. Decisions decisions...


Look at some of the choices of the Gobi sheets! The pewter I bet would be gorgeous with the green trim duvet!


If you liked pattern, then these Seaglass French Ring sheets are subtle, but give some interest to your bed.  I'm considering these as well! They add to the layered look of the bedding like this one. 


How soothing is this room? I could catch a lot of Z's in a similar space! 

Lastly I need a luxurious herringbone throw to toss over the end of the bed!


They had me at herringbone and fringe! 

Now, I need to decide which pieces to order! 


Are you a sucker for good bedding like myself? Have you tried any from Serena and lily?

Guest Bedroom Love


I'm trying to get my guest room in some sort of a relaxing state, but progress is slow. I did make great leaps when I got rid of all the old, matching furniture, but I still have a ways to go. The new upholstered bed does make a huge difference in there, but the walls are definitely lacking spark or interest. 

I spotted this guest room from Life on Virginia Street and loved how soothing and simple it is! I think I could use some simplicity in my life! The blue, green, and gray palette is what I'm leaning towards too. 



Mixing patterns and colors can add so much impact to a space! 



Thinking I might try my hand at an abstract piece of art for the room! There's 3 blank canvases in my closet collecting dust, so if I mess up there's a few spares! The colors remind me of the ocean! 


See what a difference paint can make! The room is so light and fresh now! 

She did such a great job transforming the room. One day my room will hopefully be calm and welcoming for guests. That's after I finish the nursery and cross that off my to do list!

Client Entry Way Reveal




I created this design board for a client in Houston which I shared with you a while back. Well, I'm finally getting around to showing you what a fabulous job she did with warming up her entry way. Before, the space was a blank canvas. Now, it's inviting for guests that come through the front door. 





It's so nice to work with client's that are enthusiastic about design and transforming their home. It makes my job that much more rewarding! 

Up next are pictures of the extended entry, then her living room which I designed as well!

Road Trip


It's summer and daddy's off, which means we're taking a road trip. Ava and her cousin are in for a 5 hour drive! Sea World here we come! 


I'm looking forward to relaxing by the pool, watching the kiddos play and giggle, and not sitting in the splash zone at Shamu's show!

Have a great weekend!

Glitter Mason Jars



To add a little sparkle to our gender reveal party I made these glitter mason jars. They were great holders for utensils and straws. These can easily be used for any type of get together or celebration. I'll be pulling them out again for Ava's upcoming birthday party too. 


You'll need:
Mason Jars
Mod Podge
Glitter 
Painters Tape
A paint Brush
Paper plates




Voila'! An easy upgrade to your basic mason jar!

My Weekend



Summertime is here! I wish my plans called for some beach time! Instead, I'll be battling the crowds at IKEA to get baby girl's new dresser. 

Operation get my house in order will commence as well. The nursery is looking great, but there are piles of junk I pulled from that room sitting around needing a new home. And, I've got bins of baby clothes half sorted that need to get put away. Basically, I have a lot on my to-do list! Hopefully I will conquer all my projects and have time to squeeze in an evening on the patio!

Any big plans for you this weekend? Do you have a to-do list?

Summer Beauty Essentials

 
 
 
Summer is definitely here in Texas. I'm really feeling the heat already and knowing that August will probably be very brutal for this preggo chick! With summer comes the need for extra moisturizing, sun protection, and bronzy silhouettes. I don't spray tan or fake bake, so a gradual tanner and bronzer are a must. La Mer's new gradual tanner smells so fresh unlike many of the others out there. And, with my summer beauty products I  need a fun cosmetic case. I'm dying over the Tory Burch flamingo case! It's at the top of my wish list for sure!
 
 WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE SUMMER BEAUTY PRODUCT?

Baby H's Nursery Design









After finding out we were having another little princess I was a little stumped on what direction to head for the nursery. While cleaning out some files in my office I ran across the most adorable coral and aqua nursery picture that I had printed and saved for a rainy day. Well, it came in handy because I knew instantly that was my inspiration. 

The walls will be Amour Pink and the ceiling will be painted Hopeful. I wanted some color on the walls, but not an overbearing shade of pink! This will be just enough. 

I've made some really good progress on baby girl's room already. The bedding and drapes arrive tomorrow and I hope to have it painted after our next sonogram on the 20th. I just need one more peek between her legs before splashing a ton of paint on the walls! :)  

I'd say by July this room will be complete! I've been really lucky and found almost everything that I needed already! Watch for pictures. They will be coming soon!
