Pretty little details can elevate every day items to really special pieces. Lately, the detail that's been catching my eye the most is a scalloped edge.  I think this delightful embellishment is so charming. What notable details are grabbing your attention?


Daughter's Room Reveal

My middle child / youngest daughter's room is finally done!  (Just in time for us to move!) Here's a glimpse of the way it looked "before"... evidence that a few small changes can have a big impact on a room.

I love the way it came out and wanted to be sure to share it here before it's too late!  I had the help of Muse Interiors for some of the trickier items like her custom head board and the fabulous window treatment from Martyn Lawrence Bullard's amazing fabric line (that I can't bear to leave behind). I've listed the majority of the sources for almost everything else below....


Obsession Du Jour: Cullman and Kravis

I managed to get seriously lost in the Cullman and Kravis portfolio the other day. Each inviting image captured my attention and my imagination. As you can see,  I'm already starting to scheme and dream about all the design possibilities for our new home. I even went ahead and ordered this book: The Detailed Interior: Decorating Up Close with Cullman & Kravis. So much inspiration, so little time...

Summer Reading

Summer is usually the time to catch up on all those books... However, this year, with our big move in the works and our current house on the market, I've been finding hard to find the time to sit down and really get lost in a good read. 

I did manage to start The Opposite of Loneliness: Essays and Stories and #Girlboss, both very different and very good. And, both are the type of books that you can pick up, put down for a while and pick up again when you have some time...they tend to stay in my beach bag for that reason.

The third book, A Homemade Life, was recommended to me by a close friend. She had me read this exerpt (and I was hooked!) This one's now on my night stand. Check it out:

"Having a blog is strange. I never know whether to be proud (I'm young and hip! I'm with it! I have a blog!) or sheepish (So, uh, yeah, I have, uh, a blog? I take pictures of my dinner. But enough about me! Let's talk about you.) It's a classic love-hate relationship. And like the human-to-human kind, the human to blog kind is oddly addictive. It's hard to beat the rush that comes when you press "Publish," sending your words out into the ether, or the satisfaction that stems from someone leaving a comment on your site. There's always a twinge of fear-Will anyone read this? Will I alienate all my friends?-but so long as it's only a twinge, its tolerable. Delicious even."

The author of A Homemade Life, Molly Wizenberg, writes a popular food blog, Orangette. I don't typically read food blogs or books like this one which focuses on recipes and cooking, but Mollly Wizenberg is one fabulous writer...I might even have to try one or two of her recipes!:)

Are you reading any great books this summer?
