T.S Adams Studio –  Courtney Dickey Design

Happy Wednesday, friends! We can’t believe that May is flying by so quickly. Today is my little guy’s end of the year picnic at school, and it’s sort of bittersweet. While I can’t wait for summer, it’s hard to believe that this is his last week of half-day preschool. Time flies! We feel like it was yesterday that we were plotting out how to decorate the nursery.


House Tour:Cape Cod


If you’re Wednesday is feeling a little bit blah, liven it up with this fabulous Cape Cod by Julie Stein. It is warm, welcoming and has a view so spectacular it’s sure to chase those winter blues away!


Streamlined Bookcases

Our friend, fellow blogger and fabulous artist Kendall Boggs emailed us the other day with a big question: What, oh what, was she to do with her bookcases?

Some houses simply exude summer all year round. Bright, whimsical touches…

Almost too-good-to-be-true yards… Touches of the outdoors inside that keep things green and bright…

Fresh summer produce on the plate… All amount to a home that is as perfectly summer ready as the weather!

Whatever you’re doing to kick off summer this weekend, we hope it involves fun in the sun.

And, if it includes a water view, all the better! We’ll be hanging out in Beaufort, stocking the fridge and pantry for summer.

And laying out by the pool… Or, more likely, with little Will, swimming in it. (It’s warm, but it’s not really that warm…)

And walking on the beach to feel our toes in the sand.

(And, truth be told, I’ll be on the lookout for copies of Dear Carolina in the sand!)

Beautiful touches of the seashore…

Yup. Sounds like summer to us! Whatever your weekend holds, we hope it’s wonderful! Thanks for kicking it off with us!



Mother’s Day Finds from Chairish


Mother’s Day is right around the corner! So, of course, what to get Mom is probably right on forefront of everyone’s minds.

Terra Cotta Properties

Jewelry or flowers are nice. But if your mom is anything like us, what she really wants is something gorgeous for her home! Fortunately, one our favorite stores, Chairish, has everything Mom could ever dream of for her special day!


Crazy for Coral

Elizabeth Metcalfe Design

 A beautiful nod to Mother Nature is always a welcome addition to a home. Coral is one of our favorite accents, a reminder of the shore whether it’s miles away or right outside the door. And, with all of the fabulous coral replicas, accessorizing with these lovely pieces can be as eco-friendly as it is appealing. Here are some of the ways our favorite designers incorporate coral into the decor.
