Blackberry and Lemon Vodka Tonic

19 Sep

Happy Friday! If you follow me on instagram (you can click to follow me on the right) you may have seen me post a picture of a delicious new cocktail recipe I tried. Vodka tonics are a good go to drink it is a good base for a lot of different flavors. This time I jazzed it up with muddled blackberries and lemon. It was so refreshing and had the perfect balance of tartness. I thought I would share the recipe with you.

Isn’t this home beautiful? I love the cohesive color palette used in all of the spaces, even outside. If I had to choose a favorite space it would have to be the bedroom. It is the ultimate sanctuary. I’m in love with the light fixture. Which is your favorite space?

Fashion Friday: White After Labor Day

12 Sep

Labor Day has come and gone. You no longer have to stick to the “no white after Labor Day” rule. I am a big fan of white jeans and I have tons of white tops for every season. Wearing white year round looks crisp and clean. Greys, camels, and other fall colors pair perfectly which crisp white.

Color Obsession: Olive Green

11 Sep

Olive green is a great color for Fall. It is sophisticated and timeless. Olive green can be very versatile and can be used as an accent or the main hue. When painting your walls olive the color can create a moody rich feel. Take a look at how these spaces incorporate olive green in different ways.

What do you think of this color? I like that it can be used in both traditional and modern ways. If you aren’t quite ready to commit to the color try incorporating olive green in with throw pillows, artwork, or accessories.

3 Ways to Bring Fall into Your Home

10 Sep

Good Morning! We are in that transition period between Summer and Fall. There are 3 ways I like to get my space feeling like Fall. Throw blankets (I always have a couple on my sofa. I love getting warm and cozy.) Throw pillows (add in Fall colors and textures.) Candles (I love the warm glow of candles. Warm metal candle holders add to the Fall feeling.) What are your essentials for bringing Fall into you home?
