I just realized I have not shared my world with you via insta lately. It's been an action packed but fun filled summer..Here is what's going on lately!!

Here is a little peek at my design studio. It's pretty much finished and I had it photographed. I'll be sharing all of the images soon, I was really happy with how the photographs turned out. The reason I rented the space was because of the great light quality and the close proximity to my home, it is super convenient. The paint I used is all from Ace Hardware and is the Clark+Kensington's line, Walls: Designer White 1066, Trim: Sheer Mist N-C9, Doors: Midnight Stroll in high gloss N-C16. Photographs are by Ann-Marie Rollo
Here is a snap of Lindsey and I working hard to finish up a design project at my studio!
We had the most amazing time in P-town. We ate, drank and were very merry!! While there, I was sure to pop into one of my favorite design shops - Shor. I am loving the hydrangea trees and think I may need to plant these at my home. 

I was at my friend Julia's home the other day. She had a lush cutting garden full of giant cosmos, zinnias and marigolds. She has beautiful flower arrangements all summer from her gorgeous garden!! I can't wait to do this very thing next summer! I do have a veggie garden that is starting to yield cukes, lettuce and tomatoes.  

I will share more photos on this little peek later. I recently re-vamped an old oak dresser for my son's room. I used Amy Howard's liming wax and one step paint in black. I love the way the wood looks limed, it was a fairly easy process and it truly transformed the piece. I detailed the steps on Ace's Instagram page two weeks ago. See it here. 

My son turned "9" on Saturday, hard to believe that nine years went so fast. I took him into Boston for a quick lunch trip on Saturday. It was fun spending time alone together. Here he is on Red Auerbach's lap. The irony is my son is a Celtics fan but is wearing a Steph Curry shirt!

Congratulations on your new space! It's so bright and beautiful. Also, happy belated birthday to your son!

I love the sneak peek of your office. As someone who is just going through a separation, I look to pretty things to bring me a bit of comfort, as superficial as that may seem. Thank you for your blog!

Hi Hollie-

I can relate, when I was seperated and going through my divorce with two small children blogging and searching for inspiration saved my sanity. Best of luck to you. This too shall pass. xo
