The other day I realized I had been so busy all summer that I hadn’t done a tablescape since July 4th! I do usually like to toy around with tablescape ideas at least a couple of times a month. Not only for fun, but also so that when we entertain I have something prepared beforehand. I adore doing them; it’s kind of a fun, creative outlet for me. If you love them too, be sure to check out my free e-book with twelve pretty and easy tables – one for each month of the year!
Freestanding tubs. Is there a more romantic look for a bathroom?! I’m not sure why they disappeared, but for decades it has been the trend to build a bathtub/shower combo, or in the case of my master, no tub at all (horrible!) Whatever the reason, the stand alone tub is back and I for one am thrilled to see it return!
I absolutely adore white pumpkins! I’m sure this comes as no surprise, seeing as how I love white everything! But I am especially smitten with these. I don’t know about you, but they definitely weren’t around when I was growing up. There were plain old orange ones and that was it! And let’s face it, there aren’t a lot of houses where bright orange decor really works 😉
|Simple. Classic. Perfect.|
|LOVE an oversized houndstooth! This blouse is TDF!|
|I fell IN LOVE with this blouse when it was on the show Gossip Girl! Literally searched for months but could never find it.|
|Even Princess Kate is a fan!|
|I bought these same pants at Zara last year. Needless to say, I love them!|
|Love the sweater! And how cute are the black and white shoes?!|
|Once a classic…|
|Always a classic!|
Decorating with cloches is one of my favorite ways of highlighting something special or adding interest to a vignette. So although I’ve spoken of my love for glass cloches before on the blog, I thought it might be time to revisit the subject!
I first saw and fell in love with them years ago in Paris. They are all over the beautiful bakeries in that city. But at that time, I never saw them here in the United States. I’m not sure why they took so long to appear here, but I’m so glad they did!
Is there anything crisper to wear than black and white? I know it can be argued that this is a non-seasonal look and as such, it can be worn all year, and I would agree. However, when it’s the middle of August and hot as Hades, we want everything we wear to at least appear crisp and fresh, right? Well, pairing black and white separates does the job! A classic and effortless combo, it is the epitome of chic. And a definite favorite of mine! I’ve talked about my love for black and white before, but because it is so timeless, I thought it was worth re-visiting!
