Bed Options

Tuesday, September 16, 2014

Corey and I went to Charleston this past weekend so I could shoot an engagement session for some close friends (which I promise to share as soon as I get the film back) and strolling around the city made me realize how much I’ve been neglecting our landscaping (those window planters!!) and also our bedroom which has sat in no man’s land since my mom finished up the window treatments.  There is just so much to do that it is a little daunting.  One thing that I have wanted for a long time is a grown up bed complete with upholstered headboard.  It seems so luxurious.  Here are some options that I am pondering.

One – This bed is not even in the realm of possibility but I am obsessed.  Just too darn expensive.

Two – I love this one (mostly because the shape is so similar to number one), but I’m not sure if I have gone overboard with the tufted furniture, particularly since our chaise lounge has tufts on top of tufts.

Three – Simple.  Classic.  This is a good option.

Dream Bar with Chairish Stools

Wednesday, August 6, 2014

If you guys read any home decor blogs at all, then you probably know what Chairish is.  I like to think of it as an online antique market of sorts, where people can buy and sell gorgeous furniture.  I have yet to purchase anything off the site but I surely have spent several hours looking at the pretties.  A couple of weeks ago, Chairish contacted us to see if we would like to use some of their furniture to create our own “dream bar.”  We figured well why the heck not.

But let’s be rich, shall we?  This bar will be located just outside of my guest house in San Francisco (or Paris?  maybe I have two?), right near the soothing but not gawdy pool lounge area.  We are tasteful with our richness.  Wait – do people have pools in San Francisco or Paris?  Is that even a thing?  Maybe I need to be in the south of France.  Yes.  That’s better.  Ok this takes place at our third house, in the south of France.  It’s a chateau really.  While we are all toweling off from our relaxing day, we gather near the bar to make delicious cocktails in our light green glassware.

Mirror Gallery Wall

Monday, June 23, 2014

I know it seems like Colleen and I are posting a new gallery wall from our homes like every other week.  At least it feels that way to me.  But this is actually only the second one I have done and Colleen has done 2 as well (one being gigantic) so that adds up to 4 in total between the two of us.  So basically we don’t have 80 gallery walls like it seems.  I promise.  Anyways, there are several reasons I decided to do another one.  The main reason being I had all of these pieces of art purchased on travels that I had nowhere to put.  Also, I have been wanting a full length mirror on this wall in my bedroom for several years but never really found one I wanted that wasn’t at least 50 million dollars until I discovered this oval one at West Elm and conveniently had a gift card to help bring down the cost even more.  Since it is so nice and simple, I thought it would be perfect to put a gallery wall around it.  So that’s what I did.

mirror gallery wall dumbledore | Two Delighted

mirror gallery wall left | Two Delighted

mirror gallery wall right | Two Delighted

mirror gallery wall top | Two Delighted

Mirror gallery wall full 1 with numbers | Two Delighted

Here are some sources for things that are available.  Obviously a lot of these things were photos that I took, art that I bought overseas, or calligraphy that I made including that Dumbledore quote which I am kind of in love with if I don’t say so myself.  Colleen and I are working on trying to make a shop for purchasing art and wedding calligraphy.  In the mean time, if you have any interest, just email us.  Currently, you can buy her photos here, but that will probably be moving soon as well.
