meet margot.

Friday, April 5th, 2013

On the Saturday before Easter, the hubby & I went to the Humane Society to look at puppies. We weren’t planning on getting one that day, but after holding a sweet pup in our arms, we decided definitely soon. We fell for one fluffy little girl in particular (you had me at lick). Cute attacks were plentiful. [...]

color me smitten

Thursday, August 9th, 2012

Last weekend, Joelly & I picked out paint colors for the new house. According to Martha, these are “18 go-with-everything, paint-anything, put-anywhere hues that will work in any room.” We used this palette as our inspiration, and, after a bit of deliberation, our final lineup is…(ahem): Living room & Bathroom: “Rope” (light grey. Refer to [...]

springtime nesting

Thursday, March 22nd, 2012

Although Google kindly reminded me of the first official day of spring, it’s already been feeling like summer. Either way, it was time to put away the last of the crimson-and-cream accents left hanging around from the winter holidays, and replace them with a fresher palette. Since our apartment provides minimal storage space, I only [...]

it’s beginning to look (somewhat) like christmas…

Thursday, December 16th, 2010

This year is our first Christmas as husband & wifey, so naturally I used this excuse to go all out with the decorating. Inspired by Martha Stewart, I decided to spring for a cream and grey color palette, with twinkly golds and silvers mixed in. My adorable hubby joel was quite taken aback to learn [...]

nestling in

Monday, October 4th, 2010

Joel and I decided to spend our Friday night painting accent walls in our apartment.  We drove to Lowe’s, both pointed at the same color swatch (Filoli Majestic Oak), gathered the supplies, came home and got to work. We had been wanting to add a little bold touch to our place, and giving a nice [...]

a welcome weekend

Wednesday, September 8th, 2010

Over Labor Day weekend, my fam came to Indy to hang out.  It was a big Sullan/Thomas fest and much needed fun. Mom, in her usual sweeping nature of project-ing and leaving crafty trails wherever she goes, not only helped Joel’s mama Kathy with her landscaping/curb appeal, but also lent a little TLC to this [...]
