This past week, I visited the Designer Showcase in Lexington. It takes place at a historical home that was built by the Clay family on a horse farm in 1903. The gourmet kitchen was my favorite, complete with real gas lanterns as wall sconces. The best part...this home is just a minute down the street from Keeneland. 🐎 Talk about the ideal home! #myoldkentuckyhome #designershowcase #lexington #kentucky #gourmetkitchen #interiors
Just finished styling my mom’s front porch for fall. Two observations: 1) I adore fuchsia mums. You can’t beat a pop of pink! Seriously...it will not fail your porch...like ever (well unless your house is red). 2) I’ve realize creating pretty is what gets me going. I love the art of pulling various objects together to create something beauty. The challenge and end result are both so satisfying! 💕
If only it felt like autumn. 🍂 Sweated it out at @dinerenblanccincy last night. Now taking it slow and enjoying the A/C right from the couch. Here’s to hoping crisp fall temperatures are on their way soon!
I just bought @dinerenblanccincy tickets today. Anyone else attending this year? There’s nothing I love more than styling up a tablescape for a big celebration! Although my husband thinks the whole concept is a little crazy, I still love it. This year, I’m making it a girls’ night. 🥂🍽 #dinerenblanc #dinerenblanccincinnati #cincinnati
Last year, we built a mudroom installation in our foyer and it has been one of my favorite DIY projects to date. Initially, we featured a console table and mirror in this spot, but it was purely decorative, serving little purpose. I never felt like our guests had a place to put their things like coats and purses. I dreamt about this mudroom installation for over a year and finally set out to make it happen. Now I wonder why I waited so long as this little space in our home makes me so happy. I feel like I’ve asked myself that question many times on several home improvements. Have you felt the same way? Now I tell myself...After four years in this house, it’s time to tackle the master bedroom! #ontothenextadventure 🛏
If only I could wrap presents for living. It’s amazing how much happiness pretty paper and a big bow bring me. 🎀 Anyone else obsessed with the @homegoods wrapping paper selection? 😍 I go in for a return and walk out with four rolls of wrapping paper I didn’t even know I needed. Good thing they’re only $2.99 each! #homegoodshappy
This past weekend, I came across the most beautiful headbands for little girls at the @craftysupermkt. @carmelasgarden is so talented! I wanted to buy every one. 😍 #shoplocal #shopsmall #craftysupermarket #cincinnati
My sweet boy turned two today! 🎉We celebrated with a “Rise and shine, its donut time” party this weekend. 🍩 I’m going to call dibs on this party theme for my birthday too. I mean, who doesn’t love donuts?
