Cozy Dining

I love the mix of seating at this casual, vintage chic table.  The color palette is beautiful and the chairs all look incredibly cozy with cushions, pillows & blankets.

kitchen [nooks]

I think breakfast nooks are so charming.  They're perfectly sized, casual, cozy, and the ideal spot to cuddle up in the morning to enjoy breakfast and a warm cup of coffee or tea...

Table Design

Call me crazy, but designing and setting a table is one of my favorite things to do.  I love the idea of creating a beautiful setting where family and friends can gather around to enjoy delicious food, yummy libations, and great conversation.  I love that there is such a large amount of creative freedom - the tables above are all so different, yet all equally beautiful.  From linens to chairs, to flowers to candles, to plates and silverware (the list goes on...) the options are endless.  For your next party, find one element that inspires you and design from there!
