tile powder room

My MIL and I are talking about updating her downstairs powder rooms so I naturally started perusing Pinterest and houzz for some inspiration.  I love the split walls whether it be with tile, wall paper or wainscoting.  I am also really loving the look of a white pedestal sink for a tiny space.

This converted antique table with the marble top is perfection!

This is a great more subtle option if you don’t want to go with a bold color choice.

I had to include this beautiful orange!  It is the HoH color, of course. ;)

This is the one image that is all wall paper, but I love the green and blue color combo so I had to include it!

Moving from a NYC apartment to a Texas home means I have a lot of decorating to do! Of course, we will not be able to do it all at once, but I am having so much fun just thinking about how I want to fill the rooms. I have always loved antique furniture (it must be the southern girl in me), but I love adding youthful fabrics and modern lines to keep the overall feel younger and perhaps a little unexpected.

I came to my hometown of Corsicana this week to visit family and to do a little shopping at my favorite antique store, Canterbury Court. I made sure to pack my new favorite denim + t-shirt combo from Old Navy for a comfy outfit for travel and shopping. I love the front double zippers on the jeans and, of course, you can never have too many striped t-shirts!

I picked up this cute ‘office’ sign to hang in my future office. This is the one room I don’t have a clear vision of what I want the room to look like, but I just couldn’t leave this treasure behind.

I think these chairs should come home with me!

Knox and I took a little road trip to visit family this week while FMK stayed in Houston for work. We left the lake house on Sunday, made a stop at my parents house for a night and then continued on to my grandparents (Knox’s great grandparent’s) house on Monday. I feel so incredibly blessed to still have three healthy grandparents for Knox to know. They are the purest examples of faith and love, and I pray that we both grow-up to be (even a little) more like them.

Our poor little angel got his first stomach bug this week. He has been so sweet and happy despite not feeling well, but he couldn’t hold anything down yesterday other than Pedialyte and crackers. It broke my heart to see him sick. He seemed much better this morning so fingers crossed it was just a 24-hour bug.

With all our travel and the Texas heat, this has been my uniform lately. A favorite button down or t-shirt and my go-to denim shorts. I am really starting to crave fall fashion. (And a proper closet with all my clothes unpacked!)
