Chandelier Chic

Serena and Lily Malibu Chandelier

I adore this beaded chandelier from Serena and Lilly and would love to use it in a jewel box of a powder room or in a teen room. It's simply charming! At $995.00, the Malibu Chandelier is definitely a splurge!

If you love the look of the Serena and Lilly fixture but want the style-for-less version, I'd suggest the Dahlia Chandelier from Pottery Barn Kids. It's a doppelganger and a deal at only $199.00!

Feels Like Spring

I"m feeling a little "Spring," in my step today and I'll be ordering up two of these darling Nautilus Planters from Grandin Road. They'll be perfect for planting some low maintenance succulents. I'll use these on the center of my outdoor dining table.

I might pick up this Seashell Planter as well. I think it would look fab on my front porch!

Pop Your Cork

This cork tray from would be fantastic on a coffee table or ottoman.

I'd pair it with these cork coasters, also from also has a beautiful matching ice bucket to keep that bottle of Lillet icy cold. I like to add some frozen peaches and raspberries for the perfect Spring sip.
