Man Caves Father’s Day is this weekend and we thought it would be fun to look at spaces just for Dad – man caves as they’ve become known as in modern parlance.
In Need of a Refresh As stated before, I live in a 1865 farmhouse. The decor is more traditional than modern, owing to the trend at the time we purchased our furniture. Those were carefree days: no kids devouring our time or impinging upon our decision making, and two incomes to blow on furniture we foolishly thought we’d be mad about forever. […]
Curated, a selection of stylish and bespoke home and personal accessories, is offering homeowners access to unique and beautiful items not available in traditional retail channels.
As we head into the Memorial Day weekend, we wanted to take a moment to remember all of the brave Americans who have given their lives so that we may live in peace. And to give a big shout out to all active military and veterans – thank you for your service!
Most of the rooms in our home are lived in. Our office, however, has become an avoidance issue.

Recycling we know to be the process of stripping down consumer materials to their foundation to manufacture new consumer products. Upcycling, however, puts the innovation in your hands. Find something no longer being […]
While we’re on the farmhouse theme, we’re sharing some charming, free farm house printables we thought would be great to add to a gallery wall or to use separately in a kitchen or hallway.
It’s become customary to celebrate holidays by outfitting our homes with their markers, by creating vignettes to pay homage to the first pilgrim. So, it should be with Easter and Spring. The homestead could use a refresh. The house doesn’t need to be ornament-laden like it was in December. Spring is clean, simple and pretty. I don’t […]
The other day, I was at my local T. J. Maxx / HomeGoods store browsing and ran into a display of fun Massachusetts inspired decor for the home. We had just created a Pinterest board for exactly this kind of thing, so I was uber-excited to see we were on trend :).
