OUR HOME :: ENTRY HALL

home-tour_entry-hall

You know what they say – the entry hall {or foyer} is the most important “room” in your house because it’s the first impression that visitors see. It’s also a functional space that needs to meet certain needs: a place to drop keys & mail, check your hair before you head out the door, etc. […]

new wine fridge review

It’s no secret that I’m a big fan of wine.  It’s something I developed a taste for later in life {just the past 5-6 years} and now I consider it one of the simple pleasures to indulge in.  If I could end every day week over a table of charcuterie, wine, & jazz, with my […]

TURN AN EVERY DAY SPACE INTO AN ENTERTAINING SPACE

turn your everyday space into an entertaining space

Now that the holidays are behind us I’m ready to put my energy back into decorating our new house.  It’s taking a lot longer than it did when we bought our first house – I think I was done in about 2 months then, with every room furnished and decorated!  This time around I’m finding […]
