Laid Back Outdoor Spaces

The Summer season has officially kicked off and I couldn't be happier! Hip Hip Hooray! Summer is one of my favorite times of the year. I especially love getting together with friends and enjoying our outdoor spaces. The patio/deck area is an extension of your home and in the warm months it is used just as much as the inside. So why not make it a pretty place to relax in. I especially like these laid back outdoor spaces! I hope you have a wonderful week and getting to spend some time outside!

Lovely Mirror

I think this mirror is so lovely! I am a sucker for Quatrefoil pieces and I haven't seen a mirror like this before. I realize it isn't that functional as a mirror but it sure makes a statement!

It's Friday!

It's Friday and I'm loving this sitting room. I like the fresh feeling this room has. The sun streaming in the windows on a beautiful Spring day! Have a great weekend! Hope your doing something fun!

I am hosting our monthly dinner club tonight with some of our friends. So, I've spent the last couple evenings getting everything ready for it and spending lots of time in the kitchen. Although my kitchen is pretty it is a bit small. It has me dreaming of other kitchens. The classic all white is one of my favorites but I also could cook in any of the following:

May Flowers

It's the season of fresh flowers. I love the abundance of color this time of year. Unfortunately it's been a little late in our area of the country this year. I especially like bringing the fresh flowers into the house. It gives new life to each room. In case you aren't good at bringing fresh flowers into the home they make very realistic silk flowers. I use them often in clients homes and we sell them at The Mansion. So if you want the look without the maintenance here are a few beautiful faux bouquets. Happy May!

A Paris Apartment!

I'm really loving this Paris Apartment. I especially like the camel & gray color combo. It is so classic and sophisticated. The color combo stayed very consistent throughout the entire apartment. It has very traditional elements but with a few modern touches which makes it more interesting! Enjoy!
