Newburyport

I really can't believe I've lived 40 minutes from Newburyport for 3 years - and have never visited until now. Gosh what a beautiful place! I stumbled across this adorable boutique Helene M. that was decorated to the nines. It's also Northshore wine week and we had some fantastic wine at Ceia Kitchen + Bar along with some pretty amazing soft shell crab with cilantro....to die for. We would have definitely stayed longer - but decided to head back home just in time before the torrential downpour started! We plan on heading back for another visit soon.

Beach Decor

My sister is re-vamping her home in Oahu and she wants a clean look with splashes of bright color. Since she'd have to paint the walls back if she decided to add color that way - adding color through accessories is really the best way to go. Here are some of my favorite beachy interiors that I've chosen to inspire her and help with the planning process.

Mood Board How-To & Book Signing with Holly Becker














I'll admit it - I was totally star-struck meeting Holly Becker this weekend as she kicked off her book tour at Anthropologie in Boston. Her mood board how-to was super inspirational and she shared such great tips that I will share when I have more time to write! In the meantime, if you don't already own a copy of Holly's book (Decorate) - you need to pick up a copy asap. Trust me on this, every page is so thoughtfully put together and chock full of unexpected/awesome decorating ideas.

Lovely Prints by Pixie Pixels

Basically, I want every print in this etsy sellers shop, Pixiepixels. I'm especially loving the trellis backgrounds with either the Bee (or) Pineapple, so cute!
