i know i mentioned i was going to do a post about my bathroom reno this week but it has rained every. single. day. and there are a few more shots i’d like to get when its not raining. anyways, we have a lot of christmas things going on this weekend (a parade, charlottesville holiday market, the holiday market at grelen– has anyone been? i’m super excited!) and lots of decorating! hope y’all have a great weekend!
so I’m going to join the masses and try out this whole gift guide thing. i’m so unique! but hey, my stepdad (hi swan!), told me that he just bought a christmas present for me, based on my blog. so, i mean, if that’s all the good that comes out of these types of posts, that just kinda means i get to not-so secretly tell everyone what to get me 😉
some of my favorite shops just happen to be located in charleston- thank god they have the option of online shopping although i sure do miss popping in! also, i tried to round up some stores in charlottesville but as i haven’t lived there in over ten years, i’m a little out of the loop- would love recommendations!
its been rainy here this week but those leaf colors kiiiinda make up for it. we’re sticking around here this weekend (finally!). my sister is coming for a visit so i’m sure we’ll be eating a lot of candy, watching netflix and laughing way too much be enjoying the weather and halloweening.
»we are toying with the idea of hosting thanksgiving here and if we do, i think i need to finally bite the bullet.
»starting to form thoughts (perhaps even darker grout?) on a phase 1 bathroom reno. (sidenote- our house is c 1926 but has a small addition with a full, yet tiny, bathroom. it has been updated .1% aka they painted the wall/ shower tile, which isn’t horrible but pretty bad. but the kicker is the 1968 floor tile. its that shades of yellow/ beige and different size square look. super chic. 😐 sooo to make the bathroom a little more bearable until we can really make it pretty, i’d like to put new floor tile in, paint the vanity (which is currently some sort of light wood) and paint the walls. or maybe if i’m feeling sassy maybe some dramatic wallpaper (here, here, here) ?
i can just hear my sister laughing right now but i love the word ‘curated’. to me it means the perfect balance of everything you love with great layering and looking gathered, all while feeling easy. there are so many great designers out there right now who just get it. i feel like sometimes things can look so forced and stiff but it takes the right amount of all of the ingredients listed above to make a room perfect.
here are some images i just can’t stop thinking about.

do y’all ever feel overwhelmed with how much goodness and inspiration there is on the internet? i definitely do. i use bloglovin, pinterest and tons of lists to remind myself of articles to read, places to go, things to do, diys, inspiration, etc. here are a few older links i just discovered on my bloglovin.
happy friday! it’s supposed to be below freezing here this weekend. not really sure i’m ready for that. especially since we haven’t gotten our fireplace in complete working order. i’m supposed to be going to high point market this weekend but not sure how to make it work since we’re headed to charleston on monday (!!!) hope everyone has a great weekend!
happy first weekend of fall! after being in charleston for six years, i’m excited for the crisp weather and amazing foliage! not going to lie though, it’s a little bittersweet. i sure do miss charleston.
it looks like the weather will be pretty cool here this weekend but rainy- yuck! sounds like a good weekend to curl up, watch netflix and drink this. but we are going to try to go to a couple fun fall events (this and this).
(ps-let’s NOT talk about how many leaves are going to be on our lawn in the next few weeks. side eye to you, huge maple trees.)
here are some of my favorite links from this week!
i’m always (trying to!) brainstorming new, creative material to share on my blog. i’m attempting to become more organized with my thoughts, ideas and posts and perhaps having set topics for certain days will help- fingers crossed! In the next few weeks, i’ll slowly start to incorporate new series.
“on my radar” series will highlight little finds, images and/or design related articles and tidbits i’ve found throughout the week. hope you like it!
