Things We Love: Simple Greens

If one of your New Year’s Resolutions was to get more greens in your life, look no further.

Oh. Wait. No, no, no, not those greens. (Although, we drink Amazing Grass Kids Chocolate Superfood and it is as amazing as its title suggests. Yeah, we could try the adult kind, but you know it won’t be as good…)

Anyway, there is nothing quite as wonderful as having fresh things in your home: flowers, cake, greenery, fudge, air.

But if you’re like us and lacking in the green thumb department, there is nothing we love quite as much as few fresh leaves.

They’re super chic, on trend, live a long, long time, and lend any space that decidedly India Hicks vibe. We don’t know about you, but that’s a vibe we want.

Speaking of, Mom has a big birthday coming up next year. Don’t ask which one. A lady never tells.

And we rented one of India Hicks’ fab houses in Eleuthera for her birthday trip. Don’t tell her. It’s a surprise! Just kidding… She does read her own blog, so that would be hard to hide. We’ll share pics!

There are sure to be plenty of palm leaves like these. If there aren’t, we’ll cut some.

We know these are on trend, but really anything works.

Cut a few favorites from your own yard and you’ll be well on your way to getting more greens—no spinach required!

Things We Love: White Houses

Good morning, chic readers! We hope you are having a wonderful day and that, if you are in the path of Irma, you are staying safe. And friends affected by Hurricane Harvey, our thoughts and prayers are with you as you rebuild.

All of this crazy weather really has us thinking lately about how important our homes are to us.

White House
Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles

 

These stunning white houses are full of charm and character. They are welcoming spaces that we are certain beckon their owners home each night. While we focus a lot on interiors, on how our favorite cozy chair and that painting we couldn’t take our eyes off of make us feel a certain way, the exteriors of our house can–and should–do that exact same thing.

If a home should be anything at all, we think it should be welcoming. Window boxes and a trellis covered in vines are two of the best ways we can think of to take a home’s exterior from plain to positively darling. It’s simple touches like this that make a home feel loved and lived in. And don’t our special spaces deserve to be cared for?

Landscaping is obviously one of the most important ways to make your home feel unique. While we love flowers and big blooms, there’s something stately about a classic cluster of Boxwoods flanking the front door. Well-maintained foliage always contributes something special to a home’s exterior and gives the sense that there is a staid, lovely interior beyond the front door.

We are suckers for black and white, but a splash of color is always welcome. A bluefront doors adds an undeniably charming feel to this impeccably manicured lot.

 

There’s no doubt about it: Adding exterior color increases curb appeal. Plus, it’s easy to tell visitors that yours is the house with the blue door! Porches add character in droves and make for great porch sitting, especially during the cool fall months. 

 

What are your favorite ways to add character to a home’s exterior? Do you have any home improvement projects on your wish list?

Thank you so much for stopping by today. We always love seeing you!

Top Ten Posts of 2015


Happy New Year, readers! We just wanted to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all of your amazing support and encouragement over the past year. We love getting to know each and every one of you and can’t thank you enough for letting us be a part of your lives. It is a true pleasure! This year has been especially wonderful for me with the release of my first novel, and you can’t imagine how grateful I am to each of you who were so supportive. It was a dream come true, and would not have been nearly as successful without the support of all of our incredible blog friends. To celebrate a fabulous 2016 ahead, we thought we would share our top posts of the year. Happy reading! And, even moreso, best wishes for a very happy, healthy and prosperous 2016!

White Homes Inside & Out!

We’re not really that into the “no white after Labor Day” rule anymore… But, even still, white homes just feel like summer, don’t they?

White buds crawling up the trellis…

That bright, clean feeling that you get from being in an all-white space… All it says to us is summer, summer, summer!

But, indoors, there’s no reason in the world not to embrace the crispness of white all year round.
