• Instagram Lately: Bedroom decor, Chanel Fall Bags, Summer Whites

    It was tough getting out of my cozy corner this morning after a weekend of showing friends all around town! Nick and I have very different decor styles and rarely agree on furniture (I love everything feminine and romantic while he likes clean and modern), which is why we still don’t have dining chairs after two years in our current home… I promised him greater liberties in choosing those, as ...

  • New England Summer Soirée

    I hope you guys had an amazing weekend! Ours was an eventful one filled with family and friends, and we got lucky with beautiful weather. Nick and I hosted a small summer gathering on our roof deck to send off one of our closest friends, Carolyn, who is leaving Boston.

The assembly is straightforward, but for the less handy, it’s definitely more of a several-hours project vs. “30 minutes” like some DIY tutorials claim! Staining the wood and spray-painting the pipes added extra time, but was well worth it in the end. I use this ...

  • Sundays at home

    As much as we love dining out, my favorite part of the week is cooking Sunday supper with Nick. We usually reserve this day for any slow-cooking or soups / stews, and start early so that the aromas fill the house by the time afternoon sports are on. This weekend we made both my favorite dutch oven crusty bread and white chicken chili – the chili is easy enough for ...

  • White Christmas at Home

    This is the first year we’ve had a tree up in our condo – Nick would only allow me a short and skinny one, but it sure beats nothing! Since our space is so small, I went with a light, metallic color scheme to keep it feeling open. One of my favorite memories growing up was unwrapping our family’s ornaments each December and reminiscing where each one came from (usually ...
