travel : charleston suggestions

charleston pastels

my husband and i are traveling to charleston soon for a wedding (and a much needed getaway) and i would love any travel suggestions. i am so excited to visit; i have never been somehow. any can’t miss restaurants or sights to see while we are there? we plan to explore the city and some of the islands nearby like folly and kiawah. we’re driving down, renting a beautiful townhouse, and planning to rent bikes.

the first hint of spring has arrived to nashville, and we could not be more ready. we have had friends and family (who are all moving to nashville!) staying with us till this week and had the best time trying new places. work has been busy with photographing projects and the install of my commercial project this month. march 8th was also my sweet nephew’s 1st birthday! happy spring.

interiors : jessica de ruiter’s california home

interiors | jessica de ruiter living room

this home tour, that i originally spotted on c home, is what my modern house dreams are made of. this gem is the mid-century silver lake home of jessica de ruiter, a fashion stylist, and her husband, jed lind, who worked on the design and maintained the home’s original architecture. lind works for one of my favorite firms to follow, commune design. i love the warm wood tones mixed with the eclectic textiles and minimal aesthetic. that front door…

travel : seaside, fl

IMG_7751this weekend, josh and i travelled with the dogs to seaside, florida for a development conference. i tagged along to enjoy the sun and sand. seaside is a new urbanism community that was beautifully master planned in the 80’s and is the location of the filming for the truman show (love that movie!) growing up, my family visited the neighboring seagrove beach every year in august. in the offseason, seaside is shockingly quiet and calm. some evenings were chilly, but the weather was beautiful during the day. we ate great seafood, lots of snow cones, and walked for hours.
