knot weave doormat

37141199_000_a

i really love terrain but we all know how pricey they can be. for example, this knot weave doormat (so pretty, right?) comes in at $98. i can think of a bunch of other ways i can spend $100. and since i like to have my cake and eat it too (aka get what i want but save $)-here are some good copycats!

design book review

the new bohemians: cool and collected homes- justina blakeney

ATHOME-BOHEMIAN-STYLE-1-TB d60ba40b7b90c69cfea03305ee904b48 f030794c96e82ec44455d814422e79c3

The+New+Bohemians+1

while this isn’t a design book i’d normally pick up, i’m always open to getting out of my comfort zone. and i’m glad i did- i really enjoyed this book.

justina blakeney did such a beautiful job putting this book together- the pictures are gorgeous and the spaces are so cool. i love the color, the collected aspect, textile mixing and the organic touches.

i feel that sometimes these sort of books can be a little word heavy (let’s be real- pictures > words, in this case) but she includes short and sweet little blurbs about each space. sprinkled throughout are a series of “adopt an idea”s- which helps translate each style into your own home- and “diy”s that are totally doable and inexpensive.

new house update

y’all- i am SO sorry for the silence over here. moving 500 miles away with a one year old has been…a lot. BUT, i’m working hard to get back into the groove with everything and things are falling into place. there’s a lot more to do and a couple fun things being delivered this week but i’m really liking the vibe of this house so far

here’s a few sneak peeks of whats been happening here.

crushing on: patios

with all this nice weather happening in charleston lately, all i want to do is be outside. i feel that sometimes its easy to forget about outdoor living spaces but if designed right, it can totally be used year round. i like my porch/patio to be equal parts cozy, coastal, preppy, bohemian.
