Dressing Your Home for Fall at Living Savvy

Dressing Your Home for Fall- Series on Living Savvy

Although it's still fall, last week had a certain chill in the air that felt more like winter, and I really wasn't ready for it! The colors of the landscape are beautiful this time of year, but I find myself wanting to stay inside sipping pumpkin spice lattes beside the fireplace cozied up with a good book- you? Shorter days and colder weather may be downsides to the season, but I always look forward to decorating this time of … [Read more...]

Designer Interview at Setting for Four

Designer Interview with Satori Design for Living from Setting for Four_thumb[1]

How was your weekend? We finally had a couple days of sunshine and finished adding new cedar mulch around the trees and flower beds in our yard. We also had a patch of grass beside our deck that grew rather poorly, and decided to dig it out and replace it with the same grey limestone we have around our front porch, other side of the house, and the rest of the deck. Who needs a workout when you're doing yard work like that? (To say I'm a bit sore … [Read more...]

Designing Women Interview at Signature Style Magazine

Featured Designer at Signature Style Magazine

Yesterday we were blasted with a huge blizzard that is still underway, but has managed to slow down a bit. I decided to put the plans I had on hold for today and possibly pull out my sewing machine and make a few new pillow covers instead. There's no way I'm bundling up and heading out there! Right now I feel like we're in between seasons so I'm not ready to completely switch my decor over to spring. Instead, I think a few gradual changes will … [Read more...]

Happy Friday everyone! Today we're on our way to a friend's wedding and I have to say that I'm glad to have a break from staining my front porch.

Organizing With Living Savvy + Project Crunch Time


I have a lot of pep in my step. Today we're supposed to hit the double digits (in the 50's for my southern readers) and that's a big deal. I equate warm temperatures with snow melting, bulbs finally having a chance to start their growing process, lightening and brightening my decorating, and being one step closer to turning my project focus to the outdoors. I know that old man winter will still have a few kicks at the cat, so until he finally … [Read more...]

Guest Post for Nikki’s Nacs + Powder Rooms I Adore


Today I'm excited to be guest posting over at Nikki's Nacs. Nikki has a really cool series called 2 Bills 2 Blow, where you're given $200 to spend on any decor items for your home (well...not actually, but that would be pretty fantastic). I have to say that spending imaginary money was almost as much fun as the real thing! I've been following this series for a few months and I'm always amazed by how far everyone can stretch their money. I love … [Read more...]
