Lately I have been loving bold graphic prints... I love to mix neutral grays,beige and white with a strong graphic for interest... I might add that some color has been sneaking in here and there too. Since my style is ever evolving keeping all the key pieces neutral is the only way to go. What are you feeling lately?

I have been working on the Master bedroom .... the walls were already painted with Sherwin Williams Everyday Green... love it! It is a very soothing color and the perfect background for gray and neutrals. I purchased the 2 gray wing backs from Overstock.com they are the Biltmore wing chairs. Love em! great price and surprisingly good quality! The little chest between the two chairs has been passed down on hubby's side of the family and got a wash of creamy paint... we have had it for years and the more beat up it gets the better I like it. The mirror was gifted as payment for helping someone style their dining room... very fun piece, love mixing the ornate with simple.. it is so me. I found the perfect little lamp in teal glass from Home Goods, as well as the chevron glass box. It created a nice little sitting area in the bedroom perfect for chillaxin... yes, that is a word. I kept the artwork neutral, 2 sea shell prints were also found at Home Goods, love the Charcoal mat on them, I stacked them above a little table and set a iridescent coral bowl on top to catch odds and ends. I haven't gotten any new bedding.. thinking about adding a little gray to mood it up for the Fall and Winter.. what do you think? Bamboo shades and drop cloth drapes for the windows were both economical and stylish. Feel like this room is pretty much done... yeah... right!

As always the change of seasons has inspired other changes...mixing up the vignettes,moving things around....a new thing here,a little something there....and of course a pretty bouquet are really all that is
wanted needed to breath some fresh air into the house. I adore this time of year with the warm weather and things bursting forth in the garden....in fact I can easily spend most of the day putzing around out there with my hands in the dirt or pulling weeds in the rock garden and admiring all that is blooming or about to. Have you been inspired to make any changes?
