Batik Pillows from Etsy

I’ve got a problem. It’s an obsession really. You see, I need new pillows for my living room couch and once I saw these beauties from Amber Interiors I couldn’t think of anything else. They’re dark blue batik with hot pink stitching and that pretty much means they’ve got my name written all over them.… Continue reading Batik Pillows from Etsy

A New Headboard for Lily

Ever since Lily inherited Sophia’s old twin mattress and box spring, she’s been headboard-less. Sure, the bed is nice and comfy without one but it just made everything look very incomplete.

I mean, I get it – I know that they… Continue reading DIY: Lengthening our Master Bedroom Curtains

Half Bath Design Plans and Resource List

When we last left off, I had introduced you to our tiny half master bathroom complete with bad wallpaper and all the periwinkle blue tile you could ever dream of. I was inspired by this Laduree box and I became obsessed with the black, green and gold pallette before I decided to add a lot… Continue reading Half Bath Design Plans and Resource List

A Remarkable Renovation: 43 Church Street in Westborough

Last summer when we were visiting my parents in Westborough, Massachusetts–the town I grew up in (remember I told you about it here and here?)–I drove past this stunning house on Church Street and it stopped me in my tracks. I just couldn’t believe that I had never noticed it before. Well, that’s because it… Continue reading A Remarkable Renovation: 43 Church Street in Westborough
