Ever since I saw Rayna Jame’s brick kitchen in Nashville I have held a special place in my heart for interior brick walls: arched hallways, brick kitchen walls, whitewashed brick kitchen backsplash. It is all just so good. This summer we actually wrapped our deck in brick. (I’ll share images later on that one.)

coco COZY

Considering we pretty much have months and months of winter ahead of us, we wanted to focus on the bright side and highlight all things cozy we love so much.

I wish I could take credit for the woodpile under the custom walnut floating seat….but I can’t. My client did this one day and it blew my mind!

back on TRACK

t’s that time of the year when all of us try to reset in January. (Or as I call it “dryuary”. This is when I buy 20 times more fruits and veggies than my family can eat in a lifetime.  There is no reason you can’t get your veggies in and have your kitchen look beautiful while doing it.

two thousand and nineteen RESOLUTIONS

Every year when I talk about what my New Year resolutions, I can literally feel the eyes rolling, but that isn’t going to stop me. Over the years I have learned that I am not setting goals to become a “New Me”, I like me, I just try to take the time to reflect over the lessons and gifts that I have received the previous years and apply that to what is to come. Being a working mom of 2 young boys, once September rolls around there is literally no stopping, it is a full speed sprint until the holidays and then I always cruise into New Years tired as shit, overlibated (not sure if it is a word….) and delirious (this Thanksgiving I may or may not have gone COMPLETELY postal on my entire sweet family). Then January hits and I feel like I get a few slower months where I can focus and slow down. I can be more focused and deliberate on my choices of how I am living my daily life.

These are some beautiful; quotes that I have gathered over the year and that keep me going all year round. I can’t say that any. year that my resolutions change, but every year I can look back and see how far I have come….I am a work in progress.

Incase your are wondering what my resolutions are:

Being more present

Making my physical health a priority that is as important as my family and work

Taking my children to church

Seeing love in everything

Sending out the energy I want to attract

Being more positive

Only putting energy into people that are positive influences in me and my families lives

Not worrying so much about pleasing everyone

Not being so hard on myself (physically and mentally)

Growing my BIZNAS!

I wish all of you a beautiful 2019!

holiday loves GEM TONES

This summer I was falling in love with all of the raspberry lip stains I was seeing on the pages of my favorite fashion magazines and it dawned on me that it would be an incredible accent to the traditional green and red holiday palette. I was like a woman possessed to bring this palette to a newly completed dining room of ours in Hingham, MA.
