happy new year +one table, two ways

happy new year! as with so many people i know, myself included, i’m so glad that 2016 is over- yay for 2017! i always treat the new year as a pre spring cleaning- there’s just something about dejunking, purging and starting with a clean slate to head into the year. one of my first projects this year is amping up some of the spots that have been ignored. our house doesn’t have much of an entry so i’ve been scheming a plan to give the illusion of a grander/ more exciting entrance.

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.
