a year of romantic homes tablescapes

and cottages and bungalows too!

It’s just been over a year since my collaboration with Romantic Homes started. It all began with a “want ad” of sorts, looking for contributors for their website in something they called the “Romantics Program”.

My first submission was this vintage inspired table for 4th of July and our collaboration continued with a couple of fall tablescapes and other fun stories on collecting and travel.

When I turned in my story and photos for Christmas, I was pleasantly surprised that they chose to publish it in their magazine instead! Wow! What a dream come true!

So that brings us to the very last issue of Romantic Homes in January of 2109, before it was officially retired. I was so honored that my New Year’s Eve table made this historic issue. So sad for us Romantic Homes fans, and bittersweet for sure!

The great news is that my collaboration continues with the sister magazine of Romantic Homes, Cottages & Bungalows. They even came to my home last December to photograph it for this year’s C&B Christmas issue.

I set two different tables for them, one in the dining room and one in the breakfast room, and they’re both soooo different. I can’t wait for you to see them!

The new year brought a Galentine’s Day tablescape and a Mother’s Day table that you can check out at Cottages & Bungalows. It also brought another magazine shoot last month which will feature two more tables, a beverage station and more!

Through every season and my absolute favorite holidays, here's a little peek at all the tablescapes from this past year...

sunday drive on hampshire court

One of my favorite streets here in Newport Beach is Hampshire Court. It’s a very small cul de sac that’s more of a little circular street with only about four homes on it.

As you drive up the street, the first house that catches your attention is this Cape Cod beauty.

And right next door, is this home. These two homes are the perfect companions to one another.

Here’s what they look like, side by side.

And to the right is this southern colonial home.

Last but not least is this fabulous pink house that looks like it belongs in Palm Beach or the Bahamas!

As fabulous as these homes are from the outside, do you ever wonder what some of your favorite homes look like on the inside? I know I do! 

Well, wonder no more about the first home, you see it was designed by the fabulous husband and wife team of Blackband Design, so today we have a little peek at the interior…

More photos of this home can be found on Instagram with the hashtag #projectbackbay.
