this sign is 100% – a must have for my new office?
I’m SO excited to usher in a new month. Guys, I don’t know what it was, but last month had some bad juju. It started with a smashed car window welcoming us home from vacation, was quickly followed up by a flat tire in the fast lane of 495, two stolen packages (hope you’re loving your new long lashes, an upgrade to the best bras, and my favorite sandals, jerk!), a broken water heater upon moving into our new house and a sink that kicked the bucket shortly thereafter. What the what? Sincere apologies to whoever I maligned to receive such a karmic kick in the pants. Message received, over and out.
Misadventures aside, the month wasn’t without its bright spots. We kicked things off with a last minute trip home to the Cape for the Fourth. I’ll drive any distance for some salt air, sand beneath my toes, and a clam strip roll – really it’s all about the clam strip roll.
This view isn’t too shabby either….
I’ve been carrying this clutch all summer long. Best accessory purchase of the season! I can’t find the exact one online – I bought mine at Fleur in Raleigh – but shop other styles here. Also, if you find yourself in Provincetown, eat on the back patio of The Canteen. I’ll vouch for their lobster roll.
I tore through a ton of easy beach reads to unwind. Some favorites included: Eight Hundred Grapes, Barefoot, In a Dark, Dark, Wood (if you liked The Girl on the Train you’ll love this one!) One I didn’t love was Rich and Pretty – anticlimactic plot line and not particularly likable characters.
After vacation it was all about werk, werk, werk. Thankfully none of my foibles last month extended into my professional life. A few bits and pieces from current projects below. I love that each and every project I’m working on right now has such a different vibe.
In Logan Circle this 4′ x 4′ abstract by Paul Yanko is enlivening a modern industrial condo. An awesome mix of pillows is coming soon to the sectional below.
In an Annapolis project it’s all about classic Americana. Red, white, and blue, baby!
Here in Raleigh it’s serene ice blues and grays for this master bedroom – at least for now. Custom coral bordered bedding is coming down the pipe!
Lastly, my Georgetown kitchen reno is finally complete and that bad boy is getting its own post as soon as I have it professionally shot. It’s come a long way!
So that’s what I’ve been up to – oh, and moving into our new house – but we’ll save #homespeacehome updates for its own post. 😉
