October 2016 Echos

October 13, 2016

With the extremely hot and humid summer that we had this year, I have been anxious for Fall;  the cool weather that calls for boots and sweaters, and the warm tones that go along with Thanksgiving season. Right now I am loving layering and transition pieces – midi skirts, long sleeve maxi dresses, booties and bold accessories. I am also loving anything that is the color wine and dark florals!

October 2016 Goals

October 4, 2016

calliedavis-farmersmrkt-1004 Fall has arrived! I’ve got my mulling spices simmering in my mini crock pot, my cozy sweaters anxiously waiting to be worn, and my gardening tools ready to switch out the flowers on our front porch with mums, pansies and cabbage. The weather is slowly beginning to cool down here in North Carolina, and I’m looking forward to curling up with a good book and hot apple cider in front of our gas log fireplace.

929 Home Tour Part one

September 21, 2016


Welcome to our home! We are so happy to have you here!

We moved into our renovated home a little over 2 years ago and to be honest, I thought I would be sharing my home tour with you immediately after we moved in, but my expectations were completely throw out the window. I’ve learned that it takes time to decorate your home and that’s ok! Jamie and I wanted to complete our home decor with pieces that we really loved, not just buy things for the sake of finishing it.

When we first moved in, we barely owned any furniture or decor. I had frames that were hanging on our walls without pictures in them because I was too indecisive, and for awhile, we had a mismatch of seating in our family room, but that didn’t change the way that our house felt. Coming home to each other and maintaining a posture of open hands with our home is what matters most.

929 Decor Inspiration

September 20, 2016

Moving in together after Jamie and I were married and blending our two styles was really fun! After planning a wedding together, we had a good understanding of each other’s style and what we wanted our house to look and feel like – Callie loves neutrals, mixing patterns and gold. Jamie loves manly wood, leather and comfort. We wanted to fill our home with things that we love, or that remind us of what we love. We both love the ocean, which is why our home is filled with images and a color palette that reminds of us it – neutrals mixed with bold textures and cool colors. We also both love to be outside, which is why we tried to bring outside in as much as we could–yes, I’ve become an indoor plant lady and I love it! I believe that there are no rules when it comes to designing or decorating your home. Fill it with what both of you love! Mix patterns and textures and play around with a color palette until you make it work! The effort is worth it for both of you to come home to place that feels like a place of rest and comfort.

Knowing all of this, I created an inspiration board to help guide our home decor!
