Daddy's day!

Check out that handsome guy in the front row, second from the right. That's my dad in his rugby days in England. My dad is the BEST! Creative, smart, LOUD, loyal, and protective... I'm a daddy's girl to my core!!

rugby Best pic ever?? I know! My parents have it hanging in their house. I love the bold stripes in this pic and you can never go wrong with black and white! I'll def be displaying this photo in our new home.

Dad's Favorite Chair



How else can you add a little masculinity to the house? I think rugged or dark colored accent chairs are a great way to keep Mr. Suit and Tie happy.... dresses work well too :)

Hope you all have a great Father's Day today!

Should, could, will...

As we start the nitty gritty of designing our dream house in Ohio there are so many options to think about. Mainly, where do you invest and where do you save....do you go with all the things you like or make some choice a that you should make...for re-sale and the mainstream that sort of thing. I'm hoping we fall in the middle with all of this....but deep down I know metallic gold fish scale tiles will be found in the house somewhere.

The kitchen is on my mind right now.... I LOVE marble, but everyone sort of scrunches their nose at it as basic. I'm thinking marble on the island and the backsplash and then granite on the rest.  Dream kitchen? Two tone, glass front cabinets with glass shelves inside!! Gasp!!


Do you D.I.E over this backsplash?


I go crazy over this waterfall edge island....unfortunately Mr. Suit and Tie doesn't like it....at all. boooooo!



What do you think my stylish bloggy friends...marble or not? Should I, could I, will I?

The Call.....

Where have I been??  You know the drill...moving. I am SO ready to be back to normal life and normal posting...if there is such a thing. Ever so often I get a glimpse of what life used to be... when Brian went to the grocery store on Saturday morning and then grilled for 20 people on Saturday night. Those are the days I miss...and I am sure at some point I will get that back. For  now, I follow the call...




I mean really...who could argue with THAT??!!??  #discoballismybff #essentialdecor
