Home Away from Home… Lessons from our favorite spot.

Home Away from Home… Lessons from our favorite spot.

We went to our most favorite place in the North Georgia Mountains this past weekend and it always makes me think about home. Not because I miss being at home (though as a homebody that is always a thing) but because the house we stay at feels like home. Not because we have any ownership or have done any work or made any decision over it. But when you pull in the driveway, the feeling of being home is undeniable.   Part of it is the sweet, people who own the house… their spirit of generosity and hospitality is present...

One Rug, Three Spaces

One Rug, Three Spaces

Let’s have a little fun. Kind of like a  design “who wore it better” but really more of a “something good can work everywhere/ we all win!” kind of thing. Maybe this is not your idea of “fun” but it is a great lesson in how things can look very different in different spaces.   If you follow on instagram, you may have seen my new Living Room rug.

Hire a Designer... could i do that?

Some of us would never dream of hiring someone to help us design our homes. It just seems like one of those things we should take care of ourselves. We should have time to work on all the projects on the weekends. We should make it all work and feel right. We should have the time, energy and money for it all.   And maybe you do. Maybe figuring out problem areas or balancing spaces and giving it all the homey feel is something you are passionate about and love spending your free time doing. But if it’s more of...

Freedom In Your Home

Freedom In Your Home

  As we celebrate our country this weekend, I can’t help but thinking about how freedom can mean things great and small. Our forefathers fought hard to be sure we had certain freedoms and so many brave men and women fight daily to ensure we keep them. This is what is truly important and I know we’re so very grateful. While I’m not trying to discount that, I think we can take it on a smaller scale too and celebrate the freedoms we have in our homes.  1. Freedom to do things our own way I spent some time with one...
