Gifts Fo Yo Momma

May 11th, 2017

Shop: 1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6 // 7 // 8 // 9 // 10 // 11

Mother’s Day is on Sunday and if you have a pregnant brain like me, you may be running around last minute.  Today I’m sharing some of my favorite things that could double as a great gift! I have really been eyeing these Kate Spade mules (which  also come in a delicious camel color). I have one of these Tory Burch candles and besides being a beautiful accessory, they smell like heaven. I know this is an old suggestion, but if you don’t have a Longchamp Tote by now, you need to snag one.  It’s the perfect travel bag and folds up so nicely.

What are you doing on Sunday? Don’t forget to treat ‘yo Momma!

Lauren Conrad recently accepted an offer on her Pacific Palisades home. This property was featured on a catch up special for The Hills and I loved it.  I have to say, I get so attached to things. I can’t imagine selling something after only living there two years.  Not to mention, after our last move, I NEVER want to move again.  Take a look.  It’s clean, fresh and dreamy.

Ugh, dreamy right?

Unless you live under a rock, you’ve probably seen the styling of Syd and Shea McGee floating around the internet. The owners of Studio McGee, a firm founded just three years ago, is taking the design world by the horns.  I love her style and bold use of pattern.  They recently did a project here in Denver. Take a look:

If you’re somehow not familiar, make sure you check them out here! Shea is definitely one to watch.

DBK Nursery Reveal

I’m so excited to finally reveal project nursery! We had a few hiccups (I’m looking at you, dresser) but it’s done and I could not be happier.  It’s a dreamy space that I plan on her growing into.  I think the older she gets, a great upholstered headboard would look lovely on the main wall.  Check it out:

A Very Pregnant Life Update

April 21st, 2017

I have been SO quiet on the blog… apologies! I am exhausted.  Still working full time (not to mention my side clients), my creativity is usually spent by the time I get home. I went to a shower a few weekends ago and some ladies were talking about my blog.  I  feel so honored when anyone tells me they’re a reader.  Sometimes it feels like you’re talking to yourself! I am eight months pregnant now and very much looking the part.  The above is from Easter Sunday. We are in full nesting mode as our little lady will be here in less than four weeks.  Bitty scratched her cornea and has been in a cone for quite some time…

Needless to say, she has not been happy about it.  She got a great report on Monday, but has still been scratching so we are putting the cone on when needed.  Hopefully little Miss will be in the all clear next week.  We are going to the groomer today (after a three week delay by our vet) and I am guessing she will have much more pep in her step afterwards.  Like any lady, she is grumpy when she doesn’t look her best.

She is very aware something is going on with me and follows me around the minute I get home. I hope she loves the baby, but someone barks at the TV currently if a baby is crying… haha.  This old Shih Tzu is in for it! I am having the nursery photographed this afternoon, so stay tuned for a post this weekend.  I can’t wait to share.  I am in love with the space.

Hope you have had a wonderful week!

Victoria Beckham for Target

April 20th, 2017

Shop: 1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6 // 7

I’m less than four weeks out from having the baby, and spring is upon us.  I don’t know about you, but I’m dying over the latest Target collaboration with Victoria Beckham.  Every piece is adorable and something I would wear to work, but it’s hard to pull the trigger on an orange shift dress when I have no idea what my body is going to look like in a few months… that’s where you come in! I need to live vicariously through my friends (or start plotting my diet now).  This dress with bunnies on the collar really wants me to have it. These earrings are now $30! At least I know those will fit.

Hope it’s a wonderful week!

Looking for inspiration last week I spotted this dreamy modern mountain getaway in Cashiers, North Carolina. Designed by Kay Douglass, the client gave her free rein (and this, in all honesty is the best scenario.  If you’re going to seek an expert, let them do their thing!) The result is such a fun take on a mountain home.  Take a look:

Dorm Design

March 28th, 2017

It’s almost April and we’re nearing the end of the school year.  How is that possible?! With that, many seniors will be off to college.  It’s the perfect time to start thinking dorm design. The above scheme is mostly from Target and Walmart (believe it or not!). I think the key is great bedding, storage opportunities and creative accessories. Shop my design here:

Life Update + Friday Links

March 10th, 2017

My husband does not think this photo adequately represents my current size… ha but this is all I’m going to share! I’m 28 weeks now and EXHAUSTED.  Pregnancy is no joke, but here we are third trimester.  Hopefully time picks up a bit, because I am ready.  Let’s get this show on the road.  The nursery is really close to being done.  Just need the dresser and a few other accessories to show up and I will have it photographed.  Can’t wait to share with you! For now, here are some links for your Friday:

This podcast is fascinating. FASCINATING

Someone buy this top so I can live vicariously through you

Is it bad that I think this is hilarious?

I cannot stop stalking this light

Did you see this? I’m so ready for Nick’s season of The Bachelor to be over

Loving this home tour

This is the greatest thing to come out of our current politics

Of course I still love this

Have a wonderful weekend!
