The Goal is Not to Get Your House in a Magazine, Unless Your Goal is to Get Your House in a Magazine


If one of your lifelong dreams has been to have your home in a magazine today is a good day for you. The upcoming episode? chapter? scenario? publication?  ugh, what do magazines call their next…ISSUE of Holiday with Matthew Mead is running a contest looking for a fresh home to feature.  Not only that, the […]

Because it doesn’t always have to be about decorating, does it?


My sister and her family and our parents came in for the weekend and it was absolutely glorious.  Did you know that I’d rather have my family come stay at my house for a few nights than go on vacation?  I love it.  I love the grocery shopping and the cooking and the happy sounds […]



Today I’m sanding.  I haven’t even thought far ahead enough to know what I’m doing with this table after I erase all of the old scratched up orangey finish.  I’m willing to paint the legs even.  Know of a lovely table?  Feel free to link to it in the comments.

my stuff

This post is part two in a three part series Sumerize Your Home :: Cool, Calm and Collected. No one loves cute tchotchkes more than me. I will fight anyone who thinks they love their accessories more. I am the Coco Chanel of Home accents. I’ve got to have them. I don’t understand women who […]

Summerize Your Home :: Cool It Now

Our Summer Home

No one wants to walk in the front door of their home from the 100 degree heat and open the door and feel warm.  We want to be embraced with cool and I’m not necessarily talking temperature.  I used to struggle with the facts that I wanted my home to be warm and welcoming all […]

Summerize Your Nest

Summer Home
