I bought this old church bulletin board ages ago at a favorite antique store. The moment I saw it, I knew it could be for jewelry. Steve added the dowel at the top to hang earrings, and we added cup hooks for my necklaces. I painted a rustic, textured white on the outside, and for this project, I painted Fusion Mineral Paint Homestead Blue on the inside that matches the little cabinet below. This piece is so large I can fit my ever-growing collection no problem. (That may not be a good thing.) When I travel in the US or overseas, a piece of jewelry is my favorite to collect and wear. So many ever-lasting wonderful memories.Continue reading

I am easing back to work after foot surgery and excited to share my recent skinny cabinet find for our unusual entry hallway. I wrote about our courtyard entry that features an odd long but wide hallway a few weeks ago. Since then I have had NO conscious intention of shopping for anything new. But, one day I woke up and realized my driving days were about to end for a few weeks. Off I went to my favorite stop near the High Point Furniture Market, Blue Ocean Traders.Continue reading
HOW DO YOU ADD MOROCCAN STYLE TO A 1970s RANCH HOME?
I have shopped ’til I dropped in Marrakech three wonderful times. How lucky am I? Most recently, my travel and interior designer friend Sandra Barron and I led the Magical Morocco Girl Trip with a fab group of ladies in February. (Pre-virus mania, but just.) For eight gorgeous, not-a-cloud-in-the-sky days we ventured out from our luxe home base at Maison 28 Marrakech, most days to shop like crazy. Rugs and textiles were on everyone’s wish list.
My personal shopping goal was to add Moroccan touches – some small and some large – to several rooms in our home. I don’t want to have a Moroccan-themed house by any means. I focused my manic shopping adventures on color, texture, and warmth additions to enhance the casual cozy look we already have going in every room.Continue reading
