Awesome Easter Decor

With Easter being a week away now, I wanted to share some of my favorite Easter decor images! I love how simple things we have around the house can be used such as cake stands, egg cups, and moss from outside to create a centerpiece! I have quite a bunny collection that are gifts from my family members at Spring that includes some faux chocolate bunnies, and vintage style bunnies, so it was nice to see how some of these are used in display. How do you decorate for Easter?

Love these amazing basket ideas!
Love the vintage look of these "mercury" Easter eggs

A little bit of moss goes a long way!

Inviting Coastal Entries

What makes an inviting coastal entry? A great front door complete with a awesome door, bright, fun color and great botanicals! Here are some of my fave coastal front doors! 

Bright pink door and large agave plants create a great entry that looks like it leads to a cabana!

St Barth's home with turquoise door and shutters, and tile entrance.

Love the garden-esque entrance

Such an inviting front porch with bright colored door, playful starfish wreath and rug, and what great planters

Oh how I love Dutch doors, an even more so in this coral color!

Tall hedges and bougainvillia create an inviting entry

Shrimp colored front door draws attention to this entrance

My favorite type of front door...one that leads to the water!

Spring has sprung with Tulipieres

Since Spring has sprung, I wanted to share some beautiful tulipieres and a little history. At the height of "tulip mania" in the mid 1600's when 1 tulip bulb cost as much as 1 oxen or 1,000 pounds of cheese, these delicate flowers could not be put in any vase. Holland's tulip fiends collaborated with Delft to produce what we know as the Tulipiere, an uber vase designed to show off a bunch of precious flowers to their best individual advantage...and so the tulipiere was born!

Wendy Valliere of Seldom Scene Interiors

Happy Monday! I wanted to share the lovely work of New England designer Wendy Valliere of Seldom Scene Interiors and who is frequently featured in New England Home mag. She first caught my eye by her amazing work in a Palm Beach house which used white and blue colors with accents of red and coral which is mostly featured here except towards the end. She uses bold colors, wallpapered walls and ceilings, bold fabrics and prints. Hope you enjoy her work as much as I do.

Love the playful touch of the custom blue and white zebra rug and runner and the red accents

Love how the white linens pop against the mix of blue and white patterns 

Red and blue theme again with some periwinkle. The white coral and bone accessories pop against the blue walls.

Another blue and white bedroom

Great open floor plan and loving the tray ceilings.

Navy and white room

Wallpapered walls and ceiling

Not afraid to use assorted patterns here. Love the ceiling detail.

More of the wallpapered walls and ceiling with this fun fish print wallpaper. Great tiles.


I would take Lilly of the Valley on my night stand any night! Beautiful feminine monogram.

Black and white bathroom with closets. Notice the ceiling has a different pattern.

Perfect bedroom for little girl, red toile walls and this beautiful swan bed.
