{ weddings: a forever kind of love }

Never mind that it's been nearly {ahem} 17 years since my own wedding, I still love weddings and all of the detail work that goes into them. So I was thrilled to discover that my favorite hotel in town just revamped their wedding site and made sure to include oodles and oodles of lovely eye candy.

I am especially smitten with the fun details and the cheerful pops of yellow that highlight this Spring wedding...all orchestrated on a DIY budget {my favorite kind!}.

Congratualtions Ashlee...the new Eat, Drink & Be Married site looks amazing!

{ interior inspiration: good bones, great pieces }

The rooms in our 1930s built home are relatively small, causing a fair share of tricky decorating dilemmas. So, I'm constantly on the hunt for tips on making the most of small spaces and instantly fell in love with this tiny Brooklyn Heights brownstone, which was decorated by the mother/daughter team behind the fabulous blog, Good Bones, Great Pieces. Most of the pieces selected include some family history and are versatile enough to move from room-to-room and serve different functions (if necessary). I think the results are fabulous, don't you?

Get the full scoop on this space, which was recently featured in Traditional Home magazine.
