Chic and Classy
Back to school and back to the office… We often approach September like many approach the New Year – a time to set goals and focus on getting things done before the holiday season is upon us. Since we spend more time at our desks than we do in any other space in our home, it makes sense to have our office be as pretty as possible. It’s not fair that the kids get to do all the back to school shopping so we’ve pulled together some desktop accessories to make your work week chic!

Downton Ivy Belly Bowl
Pink Peony Blossom Gift
Thank you all for your patience and for allowing us to enjoy the last unofficial week of summer with our families… We so appreciated the time to disconnect and reconnect.

Putting the finishing touches on a renovation project is no easy feat, especially when we started from scratch in three of the rooms. We got rid of a lot of inherited furniture and accessories and now have a clean slate to work with. The larger furniture pieces were a breeze to choose but the finishing touches prove to be a bit more of a challenge.
Starburst on a Stand
The Art of The Interior
For instance, how would you style a coffee table? Do you pile it up with beautiful books and call it a day. Or do you accessorize your table with unique objects found during escapades abroad or on foraging trips to flea markets (you know how we feel about those!)?
Large Leaf Dish
Lumino Eggplant Coaster
The key is striking the right balance. Too many accessories and there’s no place for a drink; too little and the space looks neglected. Fortunately, we’ve been pinning coffee tables like mad, and have found some finishing touches we think might work in our new living room.
Hourglass Pillar Candle Holders
And of course, we’ll have flowers… If you have any ideas, we’d love to hear them!

The best way to procrastinate when it comes to holiday decorating is not only to sit at the computer and read all of our favorite blogs… but to shop on them as well! Since we still have a couple of gifts to pick up (or order online), we thought we’d introduce you to some of our favorite bloggers turned shop keepers.
