As a person with green eyes I have spent most of my life with a strong aversion to the color. I would often see green clothing items or home goods and walk the other way.
As I have gotten older I have found it to be one of my favorite colors. I love the muted army green tones or the deep jeweled hues. I know that pantone might have made the color of the year purple but I’m all about green these days.
The idea of taking the color green and using the different shades to create a fresh and intimate palette was intriguing to me. I was originally inspired by the botanical trend. I put together some inspiring images and a couple of simple wallpapers while dreaming of a tropical vacation and a new wardrobe.

COASTAL MODERN IN STINSON BEACH
While planning our annual New Years trip up to the Bay Area I spent some time looking into some possible overnight day trips locations. Insert this stunning coastal home in Stinson Beach.
November 2017 Mood Board
It’s hard to believe how rapidly we are approaching the Holidays. Our plans for this season have changed a bit and we will be traveling for Thanksgiving. In years past my mother and I host together with a beautiful group of family and friends. This year will be a bit different but I look forward to being in Ohio and experiencing some real Fall weather. Along with some quality time with my husband’s side of the family.
Although I won’t be hosting this year, you can see some ideas from the previous year here. I am hoping to put together another inspiration to share with you.
This mood is inspired by slow mornings and the crisp of fall.
October is hands down my favorite month of the year. It represents family milestones, a season change, and the magic that is Halloween. I’ve talked before about what this month means to me. But no matter each year that passes and I add a number to my age I will never feel too old to soak up every bit of Halloween. Some people think of Christmas in July, I’m thinking of October.
You might have noticed a small change around here. It seems this space of mine is on a constant ebb and flow. While there is always inspiration and ideas behind this brand, I have often found myself struggling to make my thoughts a reality.
