celebrating the earth

Happy Earth Day!

It is after all, a day to celebrate the earth,
so why not enjoy a little bit of
gorgeous map d├ęcor?

Vintage maps and globes add so much
visual interest to a room,
just a little bit goes a long way!

What’s your favorite global look?

weekend inspiration

via House of Fifty

Bar carts are so versatile and pretty, 
indoors or outdoors.  
Keep a look out at yard sales or Goodwill 
for vintage ones.  

I got this one last year for $15.

a local home with a nantucket vibe

Here is a sneak peek into one of the houses 
that's at the top of my "fun" list.  
The colors and nautical influences just
 make me happy!

The bunk room for the grandchildren is so
charming and sleeps four comfortably. 

Here’s the sophisticated master bedroom,
with tons of Cape Cod beachy style.

On May 16th, this home, 
along with 5 other spectacular homes,  
will be open to be viewed on the 

We’ll be posting more photos of
this gorgeous home after that!

Stay tuned...

This cobalt blue color and
seashells create instant coastal charm.

a modern California ranch house

 this midcentury ranch house in Newport Beach was converted
 into a contemporary farmhouse-inspired home.

This original 1950's California ranch home was recently updated and featured on the Newport Harbor Home Tour. It was one of my favorites on the tour for its simplicity and creativity in combining modern comforts with vintage style. I hope you enjoy the tour...

the open kitchen features a carrara marble island
and pops of red and yellow 

a family name is displayed above the cabinets
in colors that are sparingly used throughout the home.

a Pendleton blanket strapped down with belts and an antler chandelier dominate the dining area.

paintings of western scenes compliment the simple log bin.

Alice Supply Company  housewares are in display in the laundry room.

the boys' bathroom uses subway tiles on the walls and
penny tiles on the floor, and is accented with yellow accessories.

 a country feeling is evoked in one of the bedrooms with the combination of
yellow-painted antlers, wood-paneled walls, and an iron bedframe.

a bicycle has become a piece of art in the hallway.

 the large deck is the perfect place to relax in the shade.
