Today I thought I’d talk about one of my favorite paint colors, Benjamin Moore Calm. It’s also one of the paint colors I get asked about the most. So,  it seems a post on this topic is long overdue!

Benjamin Moore Calm is the color we have on our family room walls here in Connecticut. You can see it “in situ” in the photo above.

gifts for the men


Back today with another gift guide, this one’s for all the men in your life.
Last week I took a poll on Instagram stories asking who the hardest person to shop for on your list was. It’s NO surprise to me – finding great gifts for the men in your life is the hardest for most of you.

Hopefully, today’s round up will make shopping for your dad, brother, husband, etc, a little easier.

Be sure to scroll through to the bottom as I made a point of including past gifts I’ve given that have been a big hit!

Christmas In Connecticut

Holiday Home Decor Ideas


Holiday Home Decor Ideas


Right now, so many people have the holidays on their minds.

Specifically, getting their homes ready in time. So I thought I’d talk about some beautiful holiday home decor ideas here today.

I love to see how other people decorate their homes for the holidays.

Not only do I get a few ideas for our own holiday decor, but it’s also a helpful reminder for me to just get started!

So of course I was pretty excited to see One Kings Lane president Debbie Probst’s home all decked out for Christmas.

Having seen Debbie’s beautiful house in person, it was very motivating to see how just a few simple tweaks can make a home feel so festive.

I especially love the idea of adding greenery to a mantle or staircase, something I’ve never attempted to do, despite loving the look so much.

Since we finally caved and bought a faux, pre-lit tree  (best decision ever) I might look into adding a little fresh greenery for the seasonal fir scent. Although last year, this candle seemed to do the trick!

What’s your personal holiday home decor style? Do you like to mix it up every year with different ideas? Or, stick to the tried and true traditions? Let me know in the comments, I’m always so curious about stuff like this.

On an entirely separate note, Debbie’s federal style mirror over her fireplace is something I’ve been personally hunting for ever since visiting this gorgeous house.

Maybe Santa will bring us one;)
