Kitchen Island Lighting Inspiration!

Hello dear readers! Today I want to share some thoughts about kitchen lighting. The kitchen is the center of your home. It’s often where your family gathers to spend time with each other and connect after a long day. There’s something special about southern kitchens especially. They’re inviting, warm, and familiar. It’s always full of love, laughter, family and friends (and maybe a bit of peach cobbler!). With all of this traffic, your kitchen needs to have the perfect ‘wow’ factor to draw everyone’s attention. An easy way to do that is with statement lighting! Of course, it must be functional for tasks, but it’s a great place to show off your personal style and creativity.

Let’s begin with some beautiful lanterns…

Whimsical Wallpaper for Powder Rooms!

Powder rooms are the perfect place to be a bit fun and adventurous in your design choices. They’re usually smaller spaces that won’t require much effort to make them look fabulous. There are endless options when it comes to wall coverings… grass cloth, geometric, animal print, floral, toile… the list goes on and on! I’ve combined some of my favorites looks to inspire you to get creative in your own powder room.

I adore these traditional floral prints below. Yes, they are bold, but oh so beautiful!

Grass cloth has a soothing natural quality that can transform a small boring room into a serene space.

Big geometrics can also be very bold and make a statement!

Another traditional approach is toile. I love the formal quality of this pattern.

Lastly, no home can be complete without a hint of animal print! I just love these prints below.

Of course this post does not cover every category of wallpapers and coverings, but I’m hoping this is a good starting point for your inspiration. I would love to hear and see your ideas! Please comment below and maybe your wallpaper will be featured here on “It’s So Fabulous”.

    Love them all but in particular the grass cloth and the toile which I grew up with in my Mother’s powder room. Thanks for curating these great examples.

Al Fresco Furniture!

Ok, friends… It’s that time of year when we FINALLY get to start ‘living’ outside again! With that in mind, we must start thinking about how we want our outdoor spaces to function. Do you have children, do you entertain often, do you have a love for grilling out, do you like to read outside in the spring and summer? There are so many factors that affect the way we furnish our al fresco living spaces.

So once you can narrow down your needs, we can start shopping!

Let’s look at one of my favorite brands for outdoor furniture… Lee Industries of Conover, NC. Lee is a fabulous company to work with. They hand-make each piece right here in the Carolinas and you can really trust their quality.

Not only are these pieces practical and functional, they also look great and sit so comfortably!

I could preach all day about this company and their ‘Uncovered’ collection. Stop by the store, call us or email us if you are interested in sprucing up your al fresco areas this summer!

Step Into Spring In Style!

Now that we can officially wear white… let’s step into spring in style! As y’all know, I adore my blue and white china collection. So I thought, what better way to ‘add’ to my collection than wearing it! Blue and white pairs perfectly together in not only collectibles, but interiors and clothing as well. Here are some of my favorite twists on this very classic color combination.

Let’s start with a staple… cropped jeans and an oxford or blouse.

I just love gingham!
