I knew that would attract your attention! Wine spheres or demijohns are old wine or spirit jugs that have been around forever in decor. Mostly used in groupings for their pale green or blue/green color atop a shelf or bookcase, these glass pieces are now moving from vases to lamps and now pendants. The pendants are becoming super popular and super expensive. Personally, I love a single glass piece with a palm frond or other large branch displayed. I also pulled together a few items in the end that are a bit more affordable than some of the vintage pieces you may find out there.

There are four days left to pick up one of my gold paintings in a larger size and matted/framed in white!! Or, pick up one of my paintings on sale in a print to canvas. Just visit the Vibrant Space sale for a Preppy Bedroom going on at One Kings Lane until Thursday, May 16, at 11 a.m. EST.

Have you checked out Domaine yet? LOVE this new site. Founders of WhoWhatWear pulled this Decor and inspiration site together. Yes, I read all about Kristen Bell's nursery and baby must haves, poured over actual interiors and found sources for featured pieces, rummaged through some "how to's" for around the house...well, you get the picture. Adding this site to my favorites!

The pollen is gone! Here in Charleston, days of rain have obliterated all remaining traces of pollen. That means, time to hose and wipe off porches and embrace outdoor living. At least, until it gets too unbearably hot:-) Here are a few porches to inspire!
Remember, you don't just have to spruce up a side or back porch. I love what they did with painted striped floors, curtains, herbs and a vintage crate planter.
Who knew there were rocking chaises? I need one!
Simple, bright and colorful.

Mike and I love Palmetto Bluff in Bluffton, SC. It's only an 1.5 hour drive and has all the low country feel of Charleston, but when you combine an Auberge resort and a community set apart on its own...it just feels like an escape. The home styles are all architecturally symbiotic and consistent, but rarely have I seen the inside of some of the newer homes with updated interiors. With the building boom back on track, here's a look into one of the newer private residences.
