end of summer pink hydrangeas

End of summer vibes going on here today in my family room. I’m loving these huge, floppy mop-headed pink hydrangeas that just seem to last forever!

The secret, I guess, is soaking the hydrangeas upside down in the sink for at least 15 minutes and letting them soak in tons of water. Keeps them fresh for so long!

Happy Saturday!

roses and blue transferware for fall

Those muted fall tones usually are my go to for autumn, but here’s a prettier look for the Thanksgiving dinner table.

Beautiful blue and white transferware can be quite adaptable, especially if it has a hint of fall pattern to it, that’s why I chose these blue and white salad plates with a wonderful bird motif.

These photos are actually outtakes from an alfresco Thanksgiving photoshoot I did recently. I ended up going in a totally different direction for the final layout, but you can see some similarities.

You really can’t go wrong with blue and white transferware, and I love how it pairs so well with this vintage blue cabbage rose tablecloth I made.

It’s actually just a yard and a half of fabric that I cut into a square and frayed the edges. It worked perfectly because of the linen-like texture of the material.

Aren’t these napkins perfect? They definitely add that much-needed hint of Thanksgiving to this look. I found a set of these last year at Home Goods, my favorite store!

My grapevine provides the most amazing colored leaves in the fall, and work nicely with these glittery gold pumpkins.

Thanksgiving may be three months away, but autumn decorating is just around the corner. Have you started in on your fall décor yet?

beautiful coastal decor

There’s nothing quite like a house by the sea. Subtle coastal elements are my favorite things about a beautiful coastal home. Another prerequisite is rooms that are light, airy and relaxed.

It looks as though a beach inspired color palette of blue and greige interspersed with tons of natural textures and a clean white background is the common thread in all these homes… a perfect mixture of sophistication and laid-back confidence.

Even if you don’t live by the beach, you can infuse a bit of your favorite seaside looks into your home. Here are some of my favorite coastal rooms from this week…
