The moving trucks are everywhere this time of year. On our street we have had 3 families move. After each move the painters and repair trucks come to get ready for the new homeowners. With so much going on outside, I got distracted and started house dreaming.
I’m obsessed with the railings and porches.
The details make up for its small size. Gorgeous!
Love the black door and the sound of crushed stone. My house dreaming continues on Pinterest.

This weekend it’s all about the simple things: watching the sunrise,
enjoying a delicious summer salad,
a run in the woods,
and a little weekend entertaining.
Hope your weekend is fabulous!

Kitchen islands allow extra space for gathering and keeping the cook in the center of the action. The height of the island and seats make all the difference for function and comfort. Getting it right is as easy as taking a few measurements.

Happy Monday! Sorry for the lack of posting. I’ve been spending time with the family, catching up on task, and trying to keep things orderly around the house since we are living in the same small house through the summer.
Have you seen the House Beautiful Magazine July/August issue? It focuses on living large in small spaces. Peter Dunham’s Los Angeles apartment is beautifully decorated. He moved from a 3,500 square-foot house to a 550 square-foot apartment proving that life could be wonderful when you pair down to the essentials. Which got me thinking, how much do I really need to be happy in a home. Take a tour of his apartment here.
Thanks for stopping by.
Happy Monday! This weekend I enjoyed the view from the lovely Westside apartment my son just moved into. I’ve been busy packing boxes, purchasing first apartment essentials and juggling everything at home. Sometimes it feels things are not getting accomplished fast enough. Then I take a deep breath and feel thankful for another day.
Earlier this month I joined a small gathering of bloggers and interior designer Eric Cohler for a fun and interactive afternoon hosted by Amerock. Cohler’s designs have appeared regularly on the pages of Elle Décor, House Beautiful and many other publications. The working lunch was at Eric Cohler’s office in NYC. His office is gorgeous. His attention to details from the grasscloth covered walls to the zebra print covered waste can was inspiring.
Eric Cohler has collaborated with Amerock and curated the AmerockNow collection. With his artistic eye, he has categorized the hardware by region making it easy for the consumer to find the look they seek. The collection’s new finishes and styles blends well with both contemporary décor and traditionally styled interiors.
Themed categories allows consumers to see specific design esthetics for regional styles making hardware selections for their project easier. Cohler explains, hardware is like jewelry for the kitchen. An economical way to give your kitchen a new look is to change the hardware.
The descriptive names of the eight AmerockNOW families—#BiCoastal, #NortheastHome, #Heartland, #LondonUndone, #Lodge, #PhoenixRising, #LAExperience and #CityBeat.
What’s new in hardware design? Featured in Masion& Objet, Cohler predicts we will see more brushed copper in US design. The “living finish” is warm and rustic with its patina always changing in time as you touch it.
Cohler spoke gracefully about design. In his book, Cohler On Design, he shares his love for art and the influence of art in his designs. We had a little fun and complete two DIY projects.
Thank you Amerock and Eric for a delightful afternoon on design. Take a closer look at the curated collection here and find your style. Consumers will save both time and money thanks to Cohler’s curated hardware collection, AmerockNow.
