September Around The Web

Fall is upon us! September has been one of the most relaxing months I have had in awhile, and other than Dale working nights for a few weeks was really wonderful. This month I spent time with friends, attended Made in the Middle, shopped at Hallmarket, and went to the Plaza Art Fair. It felt great to wrap up our Europe photo book and GoPro video and I’ve done lots of yard work! I never knew getting grass seed going could feel so satisfying. Here are a few of my favorite finds around the web this month:

Happy Fall!


Sunroom Inspiration

Hello, friends! I'm finally sharing another roundup of inspiration for the house. One of my favorite rooms is a tiny sunroom off our bedroom and Dale has given me free-rein to decorate! The whole room is based upon the Globetrotter Wallpaper from Clarke & Clarke — my mom used this wallpaper in a hallway at her house and happens to have extra that will hopefully fit the space. Other than that I have ordered the bookshelf (it just shipped) and all the other details are just ideas for the time being. I will be sure to share photos once the room has come together! Also feel free to pass along any tips for keeping a real Fiddle Leaf Fig alive, otherwise I might have to resort to the faux one below. Enjoy!

House Wish List!

Hello, friends! I recently shared our exciting news that we have purchased our first home! I've been dreaming about owning/decorating a home for quite awhile, and it is still sinking in that we will be living there so soon. During the process of buying some repairs were completed, and we also decided to go ahead and get our fireplace in working order. I am so excited that we will be able to use it next winter! Another initial decision we made was to get all our wood floors refinished, and wood floors added in the kitchen. The floors have already made such a huge difference, and now we are getting ready to move in our furniture!
