~ tft tablescape: august


So I'm obsessed with blue and green. 

I referenced this obsession in a recent post, (here) in which I raved about Aerin Lauder and her gorgeous tablescapes. She seems to share the love for green and blue…
Here are a couple of Aerin's tables featuring the favorite color combo...


 Obvious inspiration for this month's tablescape!
(look at my little tucker bear snuggling in the background)























The tablecloth is thanks to Kyle Robino… THANK YOU Kyle Robino! Find the fabric here.
The aptware is next to impossible to find. Read about it here
The Oscar de la Renta green trellis plates are here.
Green napkins are from here. I think. I bought the napkins from The Linen Gallery for sure, but I'm not positive this is the exact napkin.
Clear spiral water glasses are Nason Moretti and can be found here.
I've had the green spiral glasses for a while and I have no idea where they are from. White plates are from France ~ no link.
These wicker vases have also been around for a while. I stuffed them with MacKenzie-Childs parchment check tumblers. Aerin uses her wicker votives on her tables frequently… found here.

August tablescape done! By the seat of my pants... September is almost here!

Pillow sale coming Monday!

~ inspired home: mimi


SO excited to share this beautiful home with you! Mimi and I have similar loves when it comes to design. French country antiques, beautiful textiles, and charming collections are all things we are attracted to. In fact, we are a dangerous pair when shopping ~ crashing into each other as we are heading for the same things. I have been dying to get some photos to document this awesome display of french country gorgeousness… You are in for a real treat!

Absolutely adore this wallpaper!

To the right is the living room...







My favorite room in the house is the kitchen.
Love that Pierre Frey fabric so much!











To the left at the entry, is the dining room…


There are magnificent hallways throughout the home.. 
I would die for these dream display cabinets!




The great room is chock full of gorgeous collections!
















I couldn't stop taking pics of this vignette… Just love it!

Many of the pieces in Mimi's home are from the Lauritzen Gardens Antique & Garden Show held in Omaha, Nebraska. If you haven't already planned your trip, mark your calendar for September 17-21, and visit the website here to purchase tickets. An inspiring weekend for all who attend…

Thank you Mimi! You are an inspiration to me and I adore your style! Thank you for sharing all this loveliness with my readers… I am constantly getting email requests for more inspired homes, and this will be a favorite I'm sure!
