Breezy Bayeaux

Bayeaux, France in Normandy looks like such a gorgeous town. It’s between the port city of Cherbourg and the university city of Caen. I’m now sitting here daydreaming about this place. I find this sort of thing so inspiring!! Do you? Well, I took it a step further and actually found the perfect rental. I […]

The Beauty of the Farmhouse Sink

There is something about the farmhouse sink that I’m resisting. Then again, every single time I see one, I think how wonderful it looks. Perhaps I’m afraid of it being just another trend but it does have such a clean look and the deep size makes washing pots and plans easier. I believe it is […]

Colorful Mondays: Blue Pools

This Monday will be a hot one! I’ll be drinking plenty of glasses of refreshing ice water. My glass of water may appear colorless but once the volume increases, such as in a pool, the light scatters and reflects and, well, here we are. We get to look at a gorgeous pool of blue water. […]

Feeling Gray in the Kitchen

It’s about time for me to start working on my kitchen and I don’t mean cooking in my kitchen. The cupboards are in great shape so my husband will paint them and we’re thinking dark. Dark gray. Gray is quiet and subdued and is a place of calm. Maybe the kitchen will be a relief […]

The Hello Hallway

The entrance into the home is the first meeting of your home and it can never make a second first impression. It’s important to keep the space clean and clutter-free. The last thing I want a guest to see as she walks in my door is a pile of dust next to a pile of […]

Decorating a Nursery for a Baby and Beyond

The designs are modern and fashionable and have stunning pattern options. The chair could used for the nursery and into the teen years […]

Colorful Mondays {violet}

There are certain tidbits from school that I’ll never forget. One of them is that purple is not a real name of a color. My teacher said that Crayola created the name and we should refer to the color between red and blue as violet. Do you refer to the color as purple or violet? […]
