1. Master Bedroom Sneak Peek #TNChateauFH


    While our house is still bustling with construction for another few weeks, it was important to me to make our master bedroom a cozy sanctuary away from the chaos. Still a bit bare {because it is seriously double the size of our last bedroom}, we have been slowly filling the room with new pieces like our new Inspire Q king size bed and beautiful Echo Design bedding to make it feel like home.


    We brought our favorite Slim Aarons photo, Poolside Gossip, with us and hung it in a prime spot on our wall across from the bed. Much like the photo influenced the color palette for our room in NYC, it did once again when we chose the Mykonos Bedding Collection by Echo Design. Their king duvet mini set includes a beautiful print duvet and 2 shams; I am in love with the light mosaic pattern which really brightens and lightens the room! Then doesn’t my bed look insanely comfortable? Kind of like a hotel?! If you want that whole overflowing with cozy pillows “hotel look” you must splurge on king pillows and euro shams {the Echo set includes the covers}. These pillow inserts make a world of a difference.


    Then for our furniture, we chose a new Inspire Q bed, the Inspire Q Marion nailhead Wingback Tufted King in Grey Linen. {Transitioning from a queen to king is no joke! I feel like I don’t see my husband anymore!!} Then I kept my Inspire Q Kenton x Base Wood side tables in white, but updated to mirrored bedside table lamps, the Inspire Q Felton 3-way crystal mirror lamps. We painted the walls and trim of the room a clean white {White Dove OC-17 Satin Impervo by Benjamin Moore}, the perfect compliment to the whole color scheme. Then we wanted blackout shades that matched so we ordered white ones from ShadesOnline.com. {In the picture above you can tell how much space we are dealing with – holy moly!}.


    Our new Jonathan Adler Morrow Settee matches perfectly to our Echo Design shams so I placed it in the room as a filler although after consulting with our interior designer we may opt for other seating space in front of the bed!! Guess I will have to keep you posted! Looking forward to sharing more of the reveal with you guys soon!


  2. Foyer Makeover

    Foyer Makeover Project2

    The #TNChateauFH {ie. our new home} is really starting to come together… here is a snapshot of the modernized foyer!! We took down the paisley wallpaper in place of Benjamin Moore Ashland Slate 1608 Satin Impervo, updated the stair runner to this beautiful grey and cream geometric pattern by Patterson Flynn Martin, and replaced the crystal chandelier with an antique brass lantern from Circa Lighting. To complete the space we chose a round entry table and a custom tufted settee {similar}. It’s amazing how a new paint color and sleek light fixture can really change the whole vibe of a room {especially a space that has such a great impact like your foyer!}. Looking forward to sharing more details as it is completed and stay in touch with sneak peeks on my Instagram!

    When I first came across the company Dear Sweetheart Events via this flirty picture on Pinterest, I instantly was hooked to this boutique wedding planner’s wedding blog. Wedding recaps, wedding tips, and mind you this is way past my own wedding, the pictures were always pretty and the stories romantically sweet. But what really sealed the deal and made me share with you guys was once I caught a glimpse inside the founder’s office. Perfectly pink in every way without one detail missed.

    Being in the midst of planning for my own office {see my initial buys here}, I couldn’t get over all the pink. From the matching binders, to the pink paper tassel draped across her bar cart, to her pink desk chair {which she spray painted}, to her House of Jars Custom Logo Mason Jar, I feel like I walked into a pink palace. Kat was kind of enough to share the gorgeous photos with an FH tour as well as all the details of where she bought everything! Thanks Kat!!
