It’s no secret to anyone that I’m girly. Also, I love white. If I could, my entire house would be decorate in shades of white with hits of my “neutrals” i.e., green, blue and gray. As it is I have one ridiculously athletic and naturally messy husband and three little dude’s running around. The kids sole mission in life is to keep my house in a perpetual state of Lego hazard while covering every surface in stickers and spilling everything possible on my white West Elm sectional. There is no single action designed to skyrocket my blood pressure like those kids approaching my coach without clean hands.
My response to a chocolate syrup sneak (complements of my middle guy) from the fridge today? This creation during nap-time.
We may live in South Florida but my style is inherently preppy and color-less. I love a desk with storage that doesn’t beg for overstuffing. I love clean surfaces and big pictures. I think sideboards and buffets make excellent storage in an office due to their sheer size and natural storage options. They’re quite easy to find too, in thrift stores and flea markets and if you’re willing to put in the time and effort, relatively easy to refinish and make your own.
