Hi.

Welcome!  I'm Virginia, I started this blog as an outlet for my obsession of beautiful home design, landscape design, cooking, entertaining and DIY projects.  I hope that you will be inspired to browse my collection of photos and ideas that I have found in magazines, blogs and on-line to help you design or remodel you house, beach house or outdoor living area.  I love finding new interior designers or architects that impress me enough to blog about.  I have been a foodie forever and I love to create menus and entertain.  Also, I love beautiful tablescapes, fabrics, flowers and the list goes on....

Under the Arbor


I love finding beautiful entertaining ideas that inspire my readers and this blog post is from the blog of Huddleson Linens, the contemporary luxury linens designed in Los Angeles by an Englishman and made from the finest Italian fabrics.

Huddleson is the product of a truly international environment – exquisite European linen and cotton given a unique twist by the combination of a classic English upbringing and the abundantly creative culture of California. The beautiful menu and tablescape is definitely a vision that I would love to recreate.  Obviously, we all do not have this perfect backdrop, we all wish we did...(I have always loved flowering vines growing on pergolas), but we can try to recreate this beautiful look, by buying flowering plants to arrange around the patio, dressing the table with a crisp pretty tablecloth with coordinating napkins, and when planning the menu, remember to stop by the farmer's market and pick up the freshest summer vegetables.. they will brighten the look and be so pretty on the table...
