Where it all started….

This time last year, I was preparing my house to be on the local Home Tour. It’s always a bit frightening to open yourself up like that, but the cause was a good one and I was used to letting strangers into my home — I’ve moved a lot in the past decade. But, a funny thing happened when I purchased some items from the Etsy store of a blogger you may know….Eddie Ross. Click here to see what happened.

A couple of shots not shown on the blog.
A 19th century French daybed – updated with hot pink leopard print and coordinating pillows. The lotus floorlamps are from HB Home in Greenwich. The botanical prints and daybed were purchased when I lived in Charlotte at Circa. The little martini table is from Worlds Away and is great bang for your bucks!

My son, Ty’s,  daybed. He’s an active little guy, so I wanted a fully upholstered bed. This style also allowed for maximum floor space for building blocks and playing legos. The lights are from Circa Lighting. Notice the pillows – even little boys get monograms at my house!

You never know what might happen when you take a chance. I just know, I’m glad I did.

xo, Elizabeth


  1. ….and I am so glad you opened your door and that I captured your pretty home in a pve illustration! Your little one's day bed is dreamy!

  2. I love this blog. So many great ideas, so much fun to read and look at… a super replacement for my favorite magazine that went out of print! KD

  3. Worlds Away based here in Memphis and there is an outlet 1/4 mile from my art studio. Let me know if you are hunting for anything. Enjoying your blog!

  4. fantastic! I remember Eddie's post on your home! what a treat to find you here! enjoying all your old posts….

  5. Ok, it's official…you own my dream house. I'm in love! I look forward to seeing more.

    I think you've inspired me to plant tulips in our front yard. Is Fall an appropriate time to plant them? They are stunning!

    I am also a lover of window boxes. Unfortunately, we live in a townhouse where window boxes are prohibited. Imagine that? I'll just live vicariously.

  6. So much in-love with the exterior! So is the interior indeed..loved the tulips flower as well as your House that perfectly called Home.Wonderful post!thanks for sharing.:)

  7. Cool! I love the curb appeal of your gorgeous home. The pink and white is stunning!
