1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7

girls, i got you - a nice little high/low mix.

1. i asked for these frye boots for xmas. i've actually tried them on and they're so comfortable. 

2. this scarf is under $30 and it's huge. classic tartan for the holidays.

3. i posted about fancy jammies before so why not add them to the wishlist! these have the cutest xo pattern and pink trim.

4. a friend of mine has these pants and she swears they are the most comfortable she's ever worn. sign me up.

5. i found these bags via instagram and immediately went to check them out. i love the mix of the canvas and leather and the stripes add the perfect touch!

6. the color of this stone is so pretty plus this bracelet would work for both day and night.

7. everyone lusts after something and for me, it's a pair of valentino flats. santa, if you're reading this, i've been really good this year. promise. ;)

happy thanksgiving!!

2015 Gift Guide: For The Babes

thanksgiving week ahh!! finishing out my gift guides this week with the littles and the ladies. i'm afraid my kiddo gift guide is becoming increasingly focused on boys and more specifically 3-4 year old boys since that is what i live and breath at the moment! but i've tried to think outside of that very narrow scope.


1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6

1. when i was younger i went through a sleeping bag phase which meant i slept in my sleeping bag on top of my bed every night. anyone else do that? bonus was that i didn't have to make my bed in the morning! here's one that you wouldn't mind seeing out all the time (also comes in boy colors). 

2. charlie and finn love their scooters and love playing "scooter races" in our driveway. they can also take them around the neighborhood which is extremely helpful when trying to walk the dog. ;) this also comes in a bunch of other colors and this is the "mini" version but they also make a "maxi" version for bigger kids.

3. my little ones have all of a sudden gotten into dinosaurs. they walk around pretending to be them - a lot. it's a lovely sound.

4. i have such fond memories of my big wheels as a kid. i hope c & f do too! p.s. this also comes in pink!

5. one of these fabulous banners from sharp tooth studio on etsy would be the perfect addition to any kid's room or a playroom!

6. when my boys were babies i wouldn't have sprung for these booties (especially x2) but i sure would've loved to have received them as a gift!

2015 Gift Guide: For The Home

happy friday! how many xmas gifts have you bought so far? i admit, i've got a lot! i start early every year and tend to get things as i think of them or see them. in fact, i'm just about done for the kids. #freak. so today is my home edition of this year's gift guides. i genuinely love everything on this list and lot of these things would make excellent gifts.


1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6

and i forgot to label them duh so left to right 1-3 is the top row and 4-6 is the bottom row. 

1. i'm in love love love with terrafirma ceramics and this one feels festive for the holidays!

2. you can never have too many baskets right? these are the most perfect.

3. sconces are such a great way to bring character and light to your home. swap out old ones for a cleaner, fresher look!

4. i like leather and i like poufs so this is pretty much it for me.

5. my new found love of diffusers continues and this one has a unique and yummy scent.

6. warm blankets can be kind of ugly but not this vintage mud cloth blanket. i want this SO bad. (hint hint!)

2015 Gift Guide: For The Guys

guess what friends?! it's gift guide time!! honestly i can't believe thanksgiving is next week. life is busy! so first up this year - the men. it's all clothes because let's face it, that's what most guys need and what many girls do best. here are ideas for both casual and dress.


1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5

1. this jacket is from mountain khakis which is a brand i discovered last year at a local men's store and it's become a favorite.
2. a friend of mine was telling me about a custom suit that her husband recently got through work and the pricing is right in line with brands like bonobos and boss. and my dad, before retirement, always had custom shirts made because he's not a regular size (tall and skinny). so a gift card for some custom clothes seems like a really special gift!
3. these socks are quirky and, yes, mismatched but they're kinda fun right?
4. every guy needs a nice, tailored sport coat for events and these days my better half has been wearing them to work a lot. such a classic look!
5. i love this vest and it comes in other color combos too.

Client Design Board: Great Room

first i want to say to our friends in paris, nous sommes avec vous. what a horrific tragedy. i wonder what it will take for the world to truly unite and extinguish the hate.

weekends go by too fast these days! we had painters at the house on saturday trying to wrap up which they almost did but they'll be back today. and then we're in the home stretch! family room, entry, and master bedroom are all largely done. waiting on hardware and the electrician to finish up. this week is exciting as the new powder room vanity counter and the big kitchen island counter are going in. eeks! i really think we'll be totally finished by christmas which is kind of amazing to us because when we started all of this, we didn't even know if we would be able to start by christmas!

i started on a new client project yesterday which is always a lot of fun. and pretty much every time after i meet with a client, i get home and spend my day sourcing away! i guess i'm liking my new gig. ;) today i'm sharing a great room concept for another client. they asked for an adult fun room with plenty of seating and the color blue. *not pictured is the pool table and full bar already in place!! oh and the giant 70" tv that's on its way.

Stacey great room 2

the first question they asked when they saw the black chairs with the sofa was - is it ok to have black with blue? my answer is yes! kind of like white after labor day, it's an old rule that's made to be broken. and i can't get enough of the black and white steer from minted. he just seems to go everywhere and with everything! p.s. when i go in to edit my boards on polyvore they always shrink down from when i first created them. anyone know why?!
