This weekend, Jeff and I are in Richmond, VA for a long weekend – got here yesterday. So, I probably won’t be getting around to any DIY projects this weekend. BUT if you have some free time, I have a bunch of DIYs for you to try. Click through for all 6 project ideas.
And if you have any suggestions for must-visit places in RVA, let me know. The only thing we have on our list so far is Need Supply and Quirk (hotel and gallery). So, I’d love to hear your suggestions.
Travel guide time! I teamed up with Uber, a ride request app available in over 500 cities around the world, to bring you a travel guide for a city I lived in for many years before moving to Atlanta (and before moving to Seattle too actually): Jacksonville, Florida!
Now before you start thinking that Jacksonville doesn’t have much to offer that would interest you, let me make my case. I may be a little partial to this city because it was the place I went to college, met Jeff, rescued Luna, bought our first house, etc, etc.
BUT it’s also turning into a pretty cool place to live (and visit), especially these days – with loads of restaurants, coffee shops, event spaces, and shops popping up all over town. Especially in the Riverside / Avondale and San Marco, which is where I focused all of my travel guide-ing for this one. Click through for the full guide, including my must-visit spots I hit up every time I’m in town!
I bought a new coffee table for the studio recently (sneak peek on my how to style a coffee table post). But before choosing ‘the one’, I had a big ol’ list of contenders that I also really, really loved.
SO, I’m sharing the list of my fave coffee tables today on the blog, in case you’re ready to update yours anytime soon. And they’re all under $500, which was harder to put together than you might think. So many coffee tables I love are SUPER pricey. But none of those are on the list. Affordable only for this one!
We had a great time visiting some amazing locations – Turks & Caicos, Dominican Republic, and Aruba. And today I’m sharing all the details from one of my favorite stops on the trip: Dominican Republic! We went to Catalina Island, which is a short boat ride from La Romana. And it was even better than I imagined it would be. There were little colorful houses, white sand beaches, turquoise waters, etc, etc. So good! Click through for all the details.
This weekend, Jeff and I are heading to Lumpkin to check out Providence Canyon for the first time. And I can’t wait…people call it the little Grand Canyon and I really, REALLY want to visit the Grand Canyon. So, this seems like a good compromise for now.
What are you up to this weekend? Any DIY projects? If so, I have a few suggestions for you. And #2 is at the top of my list when I get back from our little weekend trip. Which one is your fave? Click through for all 6 DIYs to try…
I’ve been looking for a sideboard, credenza, buffet-thingy….whatever you want to call it…..for the studio for months and I finally found one! I wanted something with a mid-century vibe, that was also practical, because as much as I’m in it for the looks when it comes to design, I have A LOT of stuff at the studio and need as many places to put things as I can get.
So, I teamed up with Ave Home, a New Orleans-based furniture company that offers classic styles from iconic design periods, to share how to style a mid-century inspired sideboard inside and out. It’s a minimal, but fun, and highly functional take on a classic dining room piece. Click through for my tips, tricks, and photos for styling a sideboard in a flash.
