We’re in a beach frame of mind.  Where better to spend the lazy, hazy days of summer?  It’s sweltering outside, so why not seek some relief from the serenity of sand and surf?  It’s too hot here in Richmond.  It’s making us crabby.

Which isn’t necessarily a bad thing, considering we’re surrounded by these beauties, which were just featured in the Baltimore Sun.  Turns out they’re crabby too, I guess.

Crawl on over to PoshLiving for bushels of crabs, as well as other seaside succulents.  For your home, of course.

And yes, we really went there.   Our brains offer up a unique hilarity when we’re melting.

Project Nursery

Despite the title, this isn’t a post about us.  Well, it is a little bit, but mostly it’s about a lovely site called Project Nursery.  Sounds like it’s right up our alley, no?

It’s a lovely (editorially, it would be frowned upon to use that word again, but really we can’t stress it enough) site devoted to kids’ spaces.  Join, and you have access to thousands of inspiration photos, or you can even share your own photos.  There’s a talented design team that provides design boards, like this one (featuring one of our Posh favorites, this pink drum table).  Follow their blog, grab some DIY ideas (if you’re into that sort of thing), and enter for giveaways.

We’re like kids in a candy store!

A Few Questions for Kayla Zeiters

Meet our newest Design Consultant, Kayla Zeiters – Kayla just earned her degree in Interior Design at High Point University and we are really excited to have her join our family! Please read more about our lovely new DC.

Name: Kayla Zeiters

Design background: B.S. Interior Design degree from High Point University (High Point, North Carolina)

Design philosophy: I approach design the same way I would a math problem. Every interior has a solution—it’s combining the right variables that will lead to the creation of a beautiful space.

Inspirations? Influences? Then—Elsie de Wolfe. Now—Kelly Hoppen.

Describe your design style: It’s so hard to choose! Mostly traditional but I enjoy bright colors and interesting pieces. I try not to stick to one specific style because every space is unique and cannot always be defined by just one design style.

Favorite book? Websites? I’m a total Harry Potter nerd! And I also love the children’s novel—The Phantom Tollbooth.


On my iPod: Dave Matthews Band and Nick Lachey

Must-See TV: GLEE! Parenthood, How I Met Your Mother, LOST, and House Hunters

Favorite expression: “I’m going to make everything around me beautiful. That will be my life.” Elsie de Wolfe
