For awhile now I've been toying with the idea of doing one post that's bit off-topic - a place to share everything I have come across throughout the week from home decor, fashion, beauty, to inspiration and finishes.

Sunday seemed like the perfect day for this new series!

1. Did you see the latest news? Elz Design sold her home! Read more about it here.

2. Came across this hand painted terra cotta tile from Tabarka Studio. Love the light pastel colors, would be perfect for a bathroom floor paired with light or dark walls.

3. Loving these rugs...seriously heart eyes times ten.. Orville Rug from CB2, Estrella Rug from Citizenry, and the Samarkand Kilim Woven Rug from Urban Outfitters.

4. Always on the search for new paint colors that inspire me. Here are a few colors I am loving right now...

Whites- Whisper White, Ultra White, Ultra Pure White, and Super White.

Navy- Hale NavyNovelty Navy, Long Lake, and Hague Blue.

5.  I have been looking for activewear that is comfy, but still makes me feel halfway decent. Here are a few items I am loving right now.

This hat.

These high waisted leggings and these leggings are the perfect color and length.

Shoes that are sporty, but make me feel more put together.

This casual dress that looks perfect with these shoes.

Here are a few other activewear items I am loving.

6.  I just recently bought this romper and I am obsessed.

7. Since I moved to Scottsdale, AZ, I have been looking for pool rafts to use in this 115 degree weather.

Have a great week! Xo

I recently shared where my family and I have stayed in Watersound, FL the last couple of years for vacation here. Today, I am sharing the house they stayed in this year because again the finishes are amazing!

The "Pearl of Watersound" is a 5-bedroom, 5.5 baths, with a classic elegant feel but with touches of modern flare. The finishes used are lots of black and white with elegant lighting and hardware with contemporary furniture. Each room had an abundant amount of windows with natural light pouring in. I love how each house has it's own character and style.


What's a kitchen without two islands? The two islands fits this space perfectly! Love the mix of classic elegant with modern seating.

Fun Fact: The hardware on these cabinets was actually popular in the 1930's. 






All I can say about this bathroom is WOW! What a stunning entrance and focal point. If you are wanting modern and bold with a touch of elegance this is your type of bathroom! Anybody notice the hardware on those doors? LOVE!

Every year my family and I travel to Watersound, Florida. Watersound is located off of 30A between Watercolor, and Rosemary Beach. It is a charming little neighborhood with private beach access, a community pool, parks, tennis courts, putting range, bicycle rental, quaint little restaurants,  etc. Take a peek with me inside one of these beautiful homes...

The "Summer Wind" house is a 6-bedroom house we have stayed in the past two years. Yes, I have a big family and it is a perfect house to accommodate all of us. I want to share with you a couple of pictures and videos from this beautiful house because it is absolutely stunning and the finishes used are timeless. - (Finishes include lots of shiplap, white, grey, marble, and wood throughout)



I can not say this enough, I love every single light fixture in this house. 



Lights are on point! Seriously stunning!


This hardwood flooring was throughout the entire house except the bathrooms. Seriously OBSESSED, the most beautiful hardwood flooring I have seen to date. (Pictures do not do it justice.)

I'm always on the search for lighting for my designs. New lighting makes all the difference. It can set the mood in a space and make a beautiful statement. It's an excellent way to update your homes. Came across this lighting company called The Urban Electric Co. and thought I would share some of my favorites from their collection.

Hopefully you can use one of these beautiful pieces of lighting in your next project!
