It seems like peonies are literally everyone’s favorite flower! And I’m not surprised. Because really, is there a prettier bloom out there?! Something about their fluffy beauty just makes my heart skip a beat! And I’m sure the fact that they are here for only a couple of weeks makes them that much sweeter. I wait for 50 weeks for them to appear and then buy them like crazy for two!
Is there anything easier than wearing a summer sundress?! Nothing compares to a one-piece outfit for simplicity and comfort. With a sundress you can slip it on, add a pair of cute sandals, maybe a bracelet or two, and you’re done!
I’m particularly fond of white dresses for summer, in fact, I love them so much I’ve written about them twice! However, easy, flowy dresses in colorful hues or floral prints also scream summer.
I’m sure you’re familiar with these bottles, even if you didn’t actually know the name for them. Antique demijohns have grown immensely popular in the last several years, so much so that even reproductions can be found. You know when the chain stores start copying them that they have morphed into a full-fledged trend!
An ottoman used as a coffee table, is actually one of my favorite decorating techniques. It’s a great way to have extra seating in a room, so they work really well in smaller homes. They also add a softness to a space, so if you have a lot of hard edges or your room is “all legs” (meaning you have no slipcovered furniture) they can also help even that out. Also, if you need a larger size coffee table which can sometimes be hard to find, an ottoman can often be ordered in a custom size to get exactly what you need. And of course, they are super comfortable to put your feet up on! For that reason, coffee table ottomans work especially well in family rooms.
Awhile back I shared how I had fallen in love with gingham. And now this spring, I’m seeing it talked about as a returning trend. And can I say, I could not be happier! It’s so crisp and fresh looking, and it really screams spring to me. What’s fresher than white jeans and a gingham top? Or a sweet little gingham dress?
I’m definitely a kitchen lover; it’s my absolute favorite room in the house. And I also adore French style. So putting the two together is absolute perfection to me! French farmhouse kitchens is a look that I’ve always gravitated to. It’s a little more rustic in style. Rather than just echoing “French Country” like mine and many other kitchens do, these either are actual farmhouse kitchens or look like they could be right in the middle of Provence.
