Best of May & June + Home Depot $250 Gift Card Giveaway

Wednesday, July 2nd, 2014

This week is my official summer break due to the travel adventure ahead. Also it’s Independence Day week/weekend so we plan to spend it together as a family relaxing poolside and sharing great barbeque. Before I check out for the remainder of the week I wanted to feature the highlights from the blog from the past two months: best of may june 1

My Summer Fabric Collection is available: bright colors, island inspired! Tour a beautiful Hawaiian beach cottage and read up on our favorite stops to play and eat in Kauai. I love the conversation in the comments on window treatments for sliding doors.

Build a modern pet bed for your pooch! Or mimic the look of bone inlay with paint. These are my favorite 50+ Etsy shops. I’m crushing on remodeled Airstreams, must have one someday! Bloggers share their favorite staycation spot. My best articles at Better Homes & Gardens in one collection here.

Best of July & August

Wednesday, September 4th, 2013

I failed to roundup the best of July earlier this summer so I’m including both today, here are the not to miss posts from August and July on the blog!

best of august and july 1

The guest room got a few upgrades; I was inspired by the tiled staircases of Santa Barbara; many of you agreed with the reasons to choose laminate kitchen countertops; a dresser got a new look with blue paint.

I styled a rustic & refined dining room for World Market and began a color series exploring the following: red / yellow / purple / green / coral. More colors to follow including tomorrow’s look at orange (‘tis the season!)

best of july and august 3

I posted my favorite black & white films and many of you chimed in too (great comments!); I featured some tips for growing and caring for lavender. Thanks for your input on hardwood vs. lookalike tile; some DIY personalized notecards you can make; mixing wood tones; and the completion of the painted bathroom cabinets with a step-by-step.

I’m so grateful you all continue to come back, thank you so much for reading!
