Decorating

Girl’s Room Corner

Monday, October 14th, 2013

Slumber parties, secrets, first crushes, and coming of age. It’s all happening once more with our nine year old daughter just as we witnessed with my older stepdaughter a decade ago. It is such a delight watching young girls grow, the way they forms ideas and opinions. How they possess that sweet innocence of youth but grow more mature and worldly each day. They talk of where they want to travel, the things they want to draw or write about, the adventures they want to have today and tomorrow.

I remember being a young girl and having similar dreams, listening to records on the floor of my bedroom and doodling in my sketchbook. Bedrooms for girls are special spaces, it’s there where they sleep and where they think, where they giggle about the present, and also dream of their future.

I truly enjoy the process of decorating for girls and a week ago finished a corner of the bedroom belonging to one of my daughter’s best friends – these two share a love of cheetahs, swim team, Scooby Doo, Harry Potter, and the color blue. All too soon that will change but for now I’m enjoying this moment in time.

Fall Favorites

Thursday, September 12th, 2013

It’s happened and I’m ready. I watched the first few leaves fall from the sycamore in front of my house in the cool morning mist, and I couldn’t stop thinking about pumpkin spice lattes and cable knit sweaters and I’m finally ready to welcome fall.

I rounded up a group of furnishings and accessories new for fall from favorite retailers and online shops – it’s a collection of all things warm and wonderful this autumn. fall home decor picks
