Summer ’17 Inspo
Comments Off on Summer ’17 Inspo

Although we’ve already had our taste of NC summer weather this year, the first official day of summer is in just a few days! We’re really feeling fun patterns & bright colors for the season, and we’re big on light, crisp interiors and outfits. Take a look at some of what’s inspiring us this summer!


  1. Obsessed with these clutches from Ann Howell Bullard– they have such fun prints that make for the perfect summer accessory!
  2. Loving this crisp bedroom- the use of muted greens, whites, deep yellows and natural materials perfectly invokes the season.
  3. The pattern/ color combos on these cement tiles from Cle Tile are simply amazing & give off major summer vibes.
  4. The perfect summer outfit from Rebecca Minkoff: a ruffled blouse and a button up skirt. Light, comfy & chic! 
  5. How cute are these abstract planters from BTW Ceramics?! Perfect for adding a little green around the house. We’ll take 5 please. 
  6. We’re hoping to get lots of lounging outdoors + pool time this summer & wishing it could be in this beautiful space!

What’s on your mood board for the summer? Let us know in the comments!

Outdoor Spaces We’re Loving
Comments Off on Outdoor Spaces We’re Loving

The weather has been so nice here lately and it’s got us craving as much time outside as possible! With summer quickly approaching, now’s the perfect time to spruce up your patio for cookouts, drinks outside, and long nights with friends, and we’ve got just the inspiration for you. Take a look at some of the outdoor spaces that we’re loving lately!

Patterned Patio Floors:

We are obsessed with these spaces with patterned floors. Being outside should be a bright, fun experience, and these floors really help to accomplish that!

Love the built-in seating nooks in Design Love Fest’s outdoor space (as well as the color scheme!):

Emily Henderson’s bright blue and white tile really pops and takes this patio to a whole new level of amazing!

This patio from A Beautiful Mess is a painted pattern right on top of a concrete slab- it looks so good, you can hardly tell it’s not tiled!abm

Pavers, concrete slabs, and wood planks are all great materials for your patio floor, as well, and are often times more economical than a patterned tile. 

Love the different seating groupings here:


String lights (and lots of plants) for the win:


Loving the stark contrast here:

Obsessed with this cozy, boho-chic outdoor setup! Adding an outdoor rug can really help to create warmth for an outdoor space.

We definitely wouldn’t mind being transported to the Mediterranean with a patio like this 😉


Create a super moody outdoor space by using shades of dark grays and black, accentuated with dim lighting:



After seeing all of these inspiration pics, we can’t wait to get started sprucing up our own patios! We hope this helps to create your perfect patio space 🙂

High-Impact Headboards
Comments Off on High-Impact Headboards

Headboards can easily be transformed into a focal point of a bedroom. If you have enough room on the wall behind your bed, a headboard can be a great way to add color and pattern into your room. Whether it’s a bold, solid colored headboard, or a fun patterned fabric, there are many ways to create a high-impact, attention grabbing bed with just one piece. We’ve grabbed a few of our favorite examples for you to see- take a look!

Solid Colored Headboards:

You don’t always need a pattern to make a statement- try a bold hue for extra impact!

Nail heads are a great addition to a plain headboard- they are available in many finishes and provide visual interest. aptther

Patterned Headboards:

Patterns are always attention grabbing whether they’re bold like this one:


or a subtle stripe as seen below:


We’re obsessed with Emily Henderson’s upholstered bed with Rebecca Atwood fabric!

Irregular Shapes:

Another way to amplify your bedroom is to add an irregularly shaped headboard to your bed. We especially love these two from John Robshaw!

It’s time to celebrate the moms in your life and all that they do! Whether it’s your own mother, another mother in your life that you admire, or yourself (you deserve it!), we have the perfect gifts for the occasion. Take a look below at our favorite Mother’s Day gift picks!


  1. Lands Downunder Throws – These throws come in all different colors & are so soft (and machine washable!!) This Peony colorway is the perfect shade of pink!
  2. Candles & Diffusers – Can you really ever have enough of these? And they always make great go-to gifts! We’re especially loving the Bleu Phthalo scent from Le Feu de L’eau & Meditation room from Lafco
  3. Travel Accessories – Cosmetic cases from Tonic Australia & all the pouches/cases from Stephanie Johnson are perfect for that mom that’s always on the go.
