Making an Entrance with your Entry

Hi All!

‘Tis the season where we open our doors to holiday visitors. It could be our neighbors or guests from out of town, kids home from college or an entire family reunion. Whatever the occasion may be – a Christmas Eve party or a simple family brunch – our front door tends to welcome a lot more guests this time of year. There is nothing like a friendly face to greet a guest, but why not leave a lasting impression when inviting them in. Let’s talk about giving your entry an added touch of love to create that lasting impression. Your entry, after all, is the introduction to the rest of your home. Let me just add, “a touch of love” does not require a home remodel! Here are some fun ideas for inspiration on how to welcome up your welcome.

For me, every day is a gift of which I am so thankful for… the only thing missing is pumpkin spice everything! This is, however, one of my most favorite holidays. It is a time for entertaining! I love creating an inviting (and stylish) space to bring friends and family together. It’s all about warmth, comfort and a pumpkin here and there. This is what I have my eye on this Thanksgiving…

Relaxed and Refreshed in the Bedroom

Hi All,

The days are getting darker and temps are getting cooler – it’s the perfect time of year to hunker down and switch off. Nothing sounds better at the end of the day than curling up under the covers and staying cozy, and in the morning, staying in bed for just a few more snooze alarms. It’s so easy to get stuck into this routine and before we know it, we are tired and drowsy all day.

Fashion Week: Fashion Influences Design

Hi All!

Fashion Week at the Bellevue Collection has come and gone, leaving behind some “luxe fall looks”. This event is always a show stopper and brings so much energy to our town. The runway was filled with designers like Kate Spade New York, Max Mara, and Eileen Fisher. There was a  wide variety of styles – from tone on tone neutrals with plush layers, jewel tones and pops of bold color to pretty florals, touches of leopard print and a splash of shimmer.
