Pillow obsession

In my opinion, you can't have too many pillows...on a bed, sofa, chair.  I am sure my husband would disagree though. This weekend when visiting the Jonathan Adler store I finally ordered myself the needlepoint initial pillow and it can't arrive fast enough! You can customize the colors to fit your space and they work anywhere!

In the spirit of Valentines, here are a few things I love for the home....

A great place to dine outdoors

A comfy chair and ottoman
Fresh Flowers

Potted plants...both indoor and out

Stacked pictures

An element of fun that reflects your personality

“A house is made of walls and beams; 

a home is built with love and dreams.”

Nursery Inspiration

We are hoping that 2011 will be our most exciting year yet, with the arrival of our new little adopted baby! Of course, my mind is spinning with ideas of how to decorate the nursery. My niece, Lucy, has such a well designed room (by my creative sister Lindsey) but it is also cozy, which I think is the key.

Cottages I love

Cottages always inspire me to create a space that feels cozy. These are a few of my favorite cottage pictures I have stashed away for a little inspiration on a lazy Sunday afternoon.

Happy New Year

Hard to see it end

I kept the mantle simple this year

My Grandmothers nativity set that I inherited is one of my prized possessions and the tree is made out of dried branching by Rebecca from Heaven on Earth

Birdsnests made by Rebecca at Heaven On Earch complete the little outdoor tree

Decorating for Christmas is one of my favorite things to do. I use mostly all real greens, but just over the past few years have started adding in some artificial along with it. The smell of fresh pine gives me the true feeling of the holidays.
Happy New Year everyone!
