A Modern + Functional Kids’ Bathroom

Modern + Functional Kids' Bathroom Header

Here we are again, with yet another big design decision to make!

This time, we’re tackling the kids’ bathroom — which, by the way, will also be serving as our guest bathroom.

(We apologize in advance to our future guests for any mess our kids may leave behind… because they will.)

Grey + Gold

How’s it going folks?

Did anyone stay up to watch the Emmy’s? I remember being obsessed with award shows and red carpet fashion 10-15 years ago. Not so much anymore. All of the fashion is on loan from top tier designers and styled professionally, so there’s really not much to snark on. Everyone looks put together and fabulous… and isn’t that kind of boring?!

More tragically, I don’t even recognize half the actors/actresses or nominated shows anymore! There is so much new streaming content, I just can’t keep up with it all. I can barely keep up with my reality TV schedule, let alone internet-only, scripted shows!

Clearly, I just aged myself at least a decade with my little diatribe.

Before I dive too deep into my “back in the day” anecdotes, Let’s refocus on the topic du jour: grey + gold — which personally, I think is way more exciting than WHAT CARRIE COON WAS WEARING.

(Full disclosure: I have ZERO idea who Carrie Coon is!)

Packed Lunch

packed lunch back to school The Heart's Delight Fall 2017

Last night, I was just explaining to my sister-in-law that I was terribly conflicted about posting anything Fall ’17 related.

While a number of you are in my shoes with kids starting school again in less than 3 weeks, I know many readers who have later school starts, don’t have kids at all, or are soaking up every last bit of summer (a.k.a. turning a blind eye to any sign that summer might be coming to an end). Therefore, in order to appease all parties I’ll go easy on you and try to gradually ease into the Fall 2017 pool.

I promise — no shots of pumpkins, fall leaves and Hunter Boots until we’re well into September!

In the meantime, let’s talk about one of my favorite things: lunch. Specifically, packed lunch.

Morning Routine

Why do we hear so much about people’s morning routine?!

What is it exactly about what we do between the time we wake up and the time we step outside that is so significant and meaningful?

Well, based on science — A LOT.

On My Radar: Summer 2017 Edition

on my radar header 1

While these last few weeks have flown by, I’ve felt a little discombobulated to be honest.

Settling into new routines has always proven to be a challenge for this type-A lady, who thrives on a regimented schedule. While I’ve been slowly making the shift to a less-structured “Summer-time Stella,” I’ve also been making mental notes (and i-phone notes — thank goodness for that app!) about products, brands and styles that have been catching my eye. On their own, they might not be meaty enough for a dedicated post, but when combined you can easily see why they’re worthy of discussion.

This most recent edition of “On My Radar” is all about summer time fun!

Boys Bedroom Design Refresh

Motherhood is strange.

It’s full of unexpected twists and turns with new surprises around every bend. You birth this tiny human with absolutely no clue what kind of person he/she will turn out to be.  You then have the ultimate responsibility of helping to shape their story and play a supporting role. It’s like a Choose Your Own Adventure book, but you know, actually REAL and with no alternative endings!

Agate Home Decor

The last couple weeks, I’ve spent a good amount of time giving my home a spring deep-clean. I’ve been removing clutter, organizing closets, cleaning woodwork and trim and finally, the fun part: updating decor.

While in the midst of this OCD-fueled process, I’ve taken note of a new trend in interior design and decor  that’s a quick way to inject color and pattern, without disrupting the overall feel and aesthetic of your home. Regardless of whether your interior style is rustic, preppy, glam or boho, agate is a unique decorative detail to incorporate into your design.

Happy International Women’s Day

 

International-Womens-Day-header

Today is rather a significant, landmark day for our country.

This is the first year (that I can remember in my 30+ years) that American citizens are gathering together en-masse to recognize International Women’s Day. A day commemorating the global struggle for equal rights and the important contributions that women are making to society.

Ladies (and a few gents), in case you were wondering — women do a whole f*cking lot!
