I love this quote I found while flipping through Better Homes and Gardens.
You don’t have to have the most expensive pieces to have a great room, and this is a great reminder of that fact! It may take a little more time to find or make pieces that are truly great, but if you can honestly say you love everything in a room, it is so worth it!
I am LOVING this coffee table featured on One Kings Lane today. I find myself moving away from chunky, boxy looks like chests and toward clean and elegant lines. That, and I’m a sucker for dark wood– reminds me of my Southern roots!
My parents moved to Santa Fe a few years ago, and I absolutely love going there to visit. It’s absolutely gorgeous- the open skies, the mountains, the terrain. It is especially magical in the Spring and Summer. I just love the sunflowers everywhere and the rainbows after an afternoon storm. The hiking is great, the food is amazing, and there is an awesome art scene… there’s also a lot of really, really good old furniture!
A lot of people have vacation homes in Santa Fe and the culture is rich with a history that provides a unique flair to the decorating style. I just love going to all of the shops, getting inspired, and checking out the prices for the market.
I spent an afternoon shopping recently, and here are my top picks:
The items in the top two pictures are from Encore at Double Take on Guadalupe. The rest is from Recollections on Cerrillos Road. I just have to check out these shops every time I’m in town!
