Wine tasting bridal shower

This past weekend, I had the joy of hosting a shower along with three other dear friends to celebrate Kendra’s upcoming nuptials later this summer. We had a great afternoon filled with laughter, stories, and even a few words of wisdom from our moms. Laura came up with the idea of hosting a wine tasting bridal shower. Everything took off from there! We complimented the black chalkboards with pops of mint, gold, and white and beautiful florals.

The soft, handmade envelope liners were and easy and fun DIY to compliment our invitation design. I don’t know why I hadn’t done them before. It really takes the set to the next level without a big cost. The paper was only $6 and enough to make 8 liners. To add a personal touch, we printed a few of Kendra’s engagement pictures and used them throughout the decor. See these and more below! Continue Reading →

Powder bath inspiration

We just finished up installing wood tile and a Cararra-like tile at Lady Linton last month. I’ve dreamed of updating our bathrooms, and hopefully, that is our next big indoor project. Today I’m sharing some powder bath inspiration that’s gotten me excited about designing two bathrooms this year!

Entryway Reveal

Marble Tile Entryway

As we began work with our contractor, Edin, to install 670 sqft of wood tile in our kitchen, den, and hallway, the pink marble in our entryway started to stick out at me, majorly. We’ve gradually made changes and such a small project of about 13 squares of tile was totally do-able on my own, but would likely be an entire weekend project. I decided I would go ahead and let the pros take care of it too.

Marble Tile Entryway

I knew I wanted the marble look in our entryway. A simple, classic feel would be an easy decision. Floor & Decor had several options to choose from and it was really helpful to see the displays since they are a similar size to our entry. I grabbed two sizes of marble but funnily enough on my way to the register I found a porcelain polished tile that was the one! It looks very similar to the Bianca Cararra (left above), but the lighter background and longer veining sold me.

Before we get to the reveal, here is a walk down memory lane. Continue Reading →

cleaning a burnt Le Creuset

Some things you learn the hard way. Burning my Le Creuset Braiser is definitely one of those “trial and error” moments. At first I freaked out thinking I ruined my pan, but thanks to a few online tutorials I got it taken care of. Next time you find yourself in this sample pickle – don’t panic – just try this easy method for cleaning an enamel pan.
