In Good Taste: Erin Paige Pitts

We always start January full of intentions for how incredibly clean and neat and organized we’re going to keep our houses. And it always starts out great. 

But, like a six-times-a-week gym habit, sometimes the constant cleaning up after everyone just leaves us tired. 

And you just want to leave your shoes on the floor and not hang up your pants and leave dishes “soaking” in the sink. (Well, I do. Mom would never ever do any of the above things, so she doesn’t have to make house-related resolutions!)

If your enthusiasm is waning a bit as we round the February corner, don’t worry! 

These light, bright, clutter-free and perfectly organized homes from Erin Paige Pitts are drool-worthy enough to make you want to hop right back on those resolutions. 

Because we spend so much time designing them, planning and plotting them, making sure they are perfect… 

It would be a shame to sully that gorgeous marble island with that stack of mail that you didn’t quite have time to get to this afternoon. (At least, that’s what I keep reminding myself!)

Clutter-free spaces are the most calming, after all, so if one of your resolutions was to chill out, then making up your bed in the morning as soon as you get out of it may be a good start. 

And Peter Walsh’s Lose the Clutter, Lose the Weight, says that you can lose ten pounds in six weeks by cleaning up. So skip the elliptical today, organize your shoe closet and take a bath. Killing lots of resolution birds with one stone!

 

We’ve always said that living your best life begins at home…

And the good taste of Erin Paige Pitts, certainly makes that easier than ever! 

Thanks so much for stopping by today, chic readers. We always love seeing you here!

Art from Shutterfly!

We’ll be honest. We didn’t used to equate Shutterfly with home décor. Fabulous photo books? Of course. Great prints in a hurry? Definitely. But art to hang on our walls and serving trays for wedding gifts and personalized pillows for our porches? Nope. They weren’t on the forefront of our minds. But now all of that has changed!

Little Will’s bedroom in Beaufort has always been a bit lacking in the art department. Does that ever happen to you? You’re going one hundred miles an hour through a home décor project and you finally just lose your momentum? So when we had the chance to partner with Shutterfly to display some of their fabulous new products, we jumped at the chance!

Blue & Tan

It is perhaps one of nature’s most compelling color combinations: blue and tan. And, we would venture to say that, indoors, it’s nearly as stunning as it is out. From a perfect day at the beach to a living room that makes you want to come home from vacation, take a peek at some of our favorite examples of blue and tan.

Crazy for Cobalt!

In wide stripes or bold patterns, lacquered walls or modern art, fun fabrics or those quintessentially chic beach umbrellas, we’re crazy for cobalt. Bright, fresh and made for summer, this vibrant shade is one of our go-tos for the season for adding a little pizazz to any decor. Check out a few of the ways we love using cobalt!
