Loving This Week

Is it just me or are you happy this week is almost over? I'm still digging out of the hole our powerless weekend left me in, but I can see the light at the end of the tunnel and that's a good thing. Plus, I had a very happy HomeGoods moment on Wednesday - so there's that. Here's what else I'm loving this week...


1. The sun, as displayed by our disco ball, early Wednesday morning! It's been awhile and we definitely missed it.

2. It's that time of year again - time for another installment of One Room Challenge - meet the challengers here.

3. What does your favorite flower say about you - find out here.

4. Have you seen The Intern yet? It's high on my list for a lot of reasons, one of which are the famous interiors curated by Nancy Meyers. Read her interview on her newest movie here

5. Simple steps to bring Fall home.

It's the end of another week and I foresee a whole lotta nothin' happening this weekend. Not that I'm complaining because to me it sounds perfect. 
This weekend, enjoy a little round up of What I'm Loving This Week.


1. Remember this project - it's coming along.

2. Did you see this post about contentment - it definitely makes you think!

3. For any one that says they don't have time to update their home, this article is for you.

4. If you've ever wondered what life after a very successful blog is like, here is one blog-famous couple's update.

5. For the DIY inclined. 

Have a great weekend.

Loving This Week



After 3 and a half weeks traveling the midwest, our transition back to reality was a little less than seamless. I spent a lot of hours this week day dreaming I was back here, enjoying lake life. 

Here are a couple of other things I spent some time checking out this week...

1. A great resource for affordable wallpaper options over at 320 Sycamore.

2. Beautiful pictures of the sweetest little cottage over on The Lettered Cottage.

3. Another great round up of high end and budget friendly flush mount lights over at Cottage and Vine.

4. I've been known to debate a design decision within my own home for months, which seems silly after viewing this fearless home tour.

5. How many of these things are you guilty of, because I have quite a few….time to make some changes.

Have a great weekend!

Lovin This Week

This week's lovin' update comes with a shocking revelation - it's MID JULY! Can you even believe it? Summer is half over. The girls and I are gearing up for another epic tour of the MidWest to see family and leave this crazy heat behind, but in the meantime we're making sure to enjoy each Charlotte day to the fullest. 


1. Still being relatively new to Charlotte, we have lots to discover - like the family friendly beer garden at OMB. If you've never been, definitely check it out.

2. An amazingly all inclusive round up of wallpaper from Emily Henderson. So many sources and beautiful designs - if you're in the market you need this resource. 


Emily A Clark

3. So inspired by this back hallway by Emily A. Clark I completely revamped a client presentation to include a fun and eye catching red light.

4. It's the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale - shop now for amazing deals - don't miss out!

Have a great weekend, see you on Monday with a long overdue reveal of my home office.

It's been hard to get back in the swing of things this week - a struggle I seem to have every short holiday week - but we've got a jam-packed weekend coming our way so that certainly helps with the motivation factor. In the meantime, here's what I'm loving this week...


1. While my parents were here over the weekend they helped spruce up the garden near our side door - a couple transplants, relocated pots and a beautiful new topiary are making this area lovely and welcoming. 

2. I'm loving this oversized, outdoor, DIY Jenga tutorial. Only wish I had a bit more time to put it together before our weekend festivities. 

3. Speaking of outdoor festivities, how cute would this be for your next BBQ?

4. Loads of good recipes in the new BHG issue, we'll be starting with this cocktail Friday night.

5. So much garden inspiration here it's almost overwhelming.

Happy weekend!
