Since I have been searching high and low for attractive flush mounts (a.k.a. close to ceiling lighting) for one of my clients and for the entry + hallway of our new house…I thought I would share a few of my favorites with you.
You guys, I have a very exciting event to share with you! This November, the first ever W.E.L.L. Summit event will be held in my favorite neighborhood of Boston – Beacon Hill!
What is W.E.L.L. Summit, you ask?

In the Journey: Walking the Path to Healthy, Wholesome & Sound Beauty with Tara Foley of Follain(one of my favorite shops in Boston!!)
Why I am SO EXCITED to attend:
One of the reasons I wanted to share this event with you is because I have been making a conscious effort to ‘live well’ in many areas of my life (especially since finding out we are expecting a little one). From what we put in our bodies to what we apply on our skin…and in my world – what we surround ourselves with – all have a powerful impact on our well-being. I could stay up all night reading articles online about skincare tips or healthy foods that make you look & feel better – but there’s just SO much information online that leaves me feeling overwhelmed and confused. It’s going to be so great to be able to learn directly from the professionals and other like-minded folks attending. I am certain this event will be such a game changer for the wellness community and I am very excited to attend!
Also, our friends over at Organic Bath Co. (as you may already know…I am a HUGE fan of their products) have been working really hard to put together this conference and knowing how much passion they have for living well and helping the community, I have no doubt that this event is going to be AMAZING!!

Do you think it took me long enough to share the nursery design for our little Evie who is expected to be here in September?! YES, I think so. Here’s a quick rundown: we moved into our new home last month (can’t believe it’s been 3 weeks now), we did a lot of patching of the walls, took out unnecessary electrical outlets, telephone jacks, etc. then got the house painted. All of those projects took longer than expected, as they always do, and my client’s projects of course come first.
I think I was so hesitant to make decisions on the nursery because I have actually never designed a room for myself and purchased everything at once. It’s always just come together piece by piece. You know what they say…something about the cobbler’s children having no shoes… ;)
Anyway, I had an idea of the direction I wanted to take, but I am pretty sure I’ve told everyone different things as I have been asked about the progress of the nursery. One week it was navy blue with blush pink + gold, the next week it was all neutrals, then just no pink. Well, that all changed. Here are some nurseries that inspired the direction of the nursery (click on photo for source):
There is one missing link to finish off the nursery:
1. light fixture – we are looking at flush mounts or a pendant and can’t seem to find one that we are in love with yet. So far, with the help of one of my friends who is also a designer, we have these in the running:
I also am in love with this one … but can’t splurge THAT much.
2. here is a sneak peek into the nursery so far. I wanted to show you this framed map of southeast asia we are hanging above the dresser (sorry for the terrible photo quality):Alright, so the next post I will do a before + after which I am SO excited about because it’s coming together rather quickly now!
Cody and I got up early on Saturday morning to take the Boston Harbor Cruise Fast Ferry to Provincetown (ahem, P-Town) and it turned out to be the perfect day trip! I definitely recommend taking the fast ferry if you are going to the Cape – you get there in exactly 90 minutes and you don’t have to deal with traffic and can sit down, relax with a cocktail while enjoying the views.
As we are quickly approaching our little one’s due date (September 21st…ahhhh crazy!), these next 3-5 weekends are going to be the last ones together without a new addition to the family so we are going to soak up this time together. We spent the day exploring every shop on Commercial Street – some of our favorites were: Maison Decor & Gallery, Kiss & Makeup (the ladies that were working on Saturday were so fun and we bought some bubble bath + this face wash!), Utilities Kitchen & Bath, Wildflower, to name a few! We had a phenomenal lunch at Local 186 and if you go, you must try their fried avocado! Yes, you heard me right…. FRIED AVOCADO. How beautiful is the Kiss & Makeup store?! That Cole & Sons wallpaper…obsessed. Cody wouldn’t stop taking photos of my baby bump when we were lounging at the Canteen with popsicles ;) don’t mind my tie dye dress – it’s literally the coziest thing ever and cozy wins when you are 7 (almost 8) months pregnant! Till next time P-Town and thanks again to Boston Harbor Cruises!
