Indigo Design

I was perusing Houzz the other day and happened upon the work of a design firm out of Bluffton, South Carolina named Indigo Design.  I hopped over to their site to see more and they have a beautiful portfolio full of timeless, classic, low country design.

All images from their website.















I love their repeated use of tabby on fireplaces, and think their use of ship lap is timeless, not trendy.  A great source of inspiration in my opinion.

Hurricane Irma

Thank you Hurricane Irma for turning.  But stay safe western Florida!  Events like this make you realize even more how important home is, as a physical haven and an emotional refuge. 


Hurricane Irma GO AWAY!






























Hope everyone stays safe and that the horrible natural disasters that have been affecting everyone's homes will make us more able to be thankful and appreciative of all we have.

You're so Dreamy

I have had bedrooms on the mind lately.

First there is the need for a mini makeover of the girl child's room.  So I have spent some time researching what we want in that space.  And I also think that getting our master bathroom and closet done over and finished has made me really consider the bedroom space as well.  And then a friend of mine recently asked for some longer term help with getting their master bedroom spruced up as well.  Suffice to say, bedrooms have been getting a lot of Pinterest action lately.

Some of my favorites:

Post Weekend Blues

We had a lazy weekend that did NOT include any beautiful table settings like this.  Our table looked much more like a disaster!

Sweet Dreams

So, our little girl has developed a bit of a sleep problem.  After sleeping just fine in her own room for the last 3+ years she has recently taken to coming into our room in the middle of the night because of bad dreams.  This is taking a toll on my sleep so I asked her what would help her stay in her room all night.

When we redid her brother's room last fall she was quite put out that he got a chair in his room.  Since then she has been requesting one, which is fine because I have had one in storage for awhile that I intended to redo and put in her room.  She told me that if she had a pink and purple chair in her room she would sleep all night so over the weekend we went to the fabric store to pick out some fabric to reupholster it with.  She immediately zeroed in on a narrow pink and white stripe fabric so the plan now is to paint the caning and wooden frame of the chair purple and recover the nasty, old green velvet with the pink and white stripe.  I also found a remnant of a beautiful embroidered coral fabric that I hope to make some pillows of.  And we are going to get some new art in the room.  Some inspiration:

Hopefully all of this will succeed in helping her stay in her room all night so momma can get some sleep!

Just Hanging Out

Wouldn't this be an awesome weekend hangout spot?  I think it might ease a lot of the sting of the work week!
