You guys are hired permanently, by the way.  You gave me so many great things to consider – and it was a tight race! In the end, I think as @Millie and @KateM said – the neutral option will give me a chance to play around with pops of color. @NancyGraham also made a good point – the bold green is beautiful, but isn’t as restful, which is the feeling I was hoping to create in this outdoor living room. Although I’m already loving these punchy and fun chevron pillows, I’m also looking forward to changing the look around from time to time. Check out some looks I’ve been considering:


You know I love a flamingo, am I right @flamingogirl?  I love the idea of adding a little whimsy and a lot of fun to my entertaining space. Especially before a party, adding some unexpected pieces can get people talking. I also appreciate the way designer Cassie Freeman mixed and matched pillows of differing sizes.

Dorm Design Time

Just yesterday we were starting our summers and it’s back-to-school time already! Whether you’re a student, parent or helpful friend, organizing and decorating an on-campus cubby can feel really overwhelming.

So Jaded: A Glance at Jade Green

When it comes to playing favorites, green is the second most popular color in the world (after blue). But word green can be used to describe so many different tones: sage, mint, moss, kelly, emerald and one of my favorites: Jade.


While I love the insanely current color, teal, I’ve been missing some other greens lately. I, for one, am ready for jade to make a comeback. In the room above, the wall has such a stunning depth and a richness to it, all thanks to this beautiful hue. Here are some other examples of jade doing its job very well. Read Post…
