Adorable Candle Accents for Under $10

Adorable Candle Accents for Under $10

IMG_7014

For any party, it’s important to give attention to the small things. I truly believe the little details make a party go from good to great. The best part is that it’s so easy to do without spending a ton of money. Candles bring a certain amount of “sparkle” to a party…they are a necessity. I [...]

The Wooden Silhouette

The Wooden Silhouette

IMG_9000

Southern Nest Silhouettes The silhouette.  It’s classic, elegant, and has an air of vintage sophistication.  Suddenly, I am obsessed.  After browsing different options for having a silhouette made of little B (for myself and as Christmas presents for the grandparents) I knew I wanted an updated spin on the traditional silhouette portrait. It all started [...]

I want to be in Hilton Head.

I want to be in Hilton Head.

And I want it to be summer. Most years, I feel like I blink and it’s summer and 100 degrees outside. But this year…what’s going on? Perhaps I have been cooped up in the house with a 3 year old and a new baby for far too long, but this winter feels ENDLESS. I was [...]

Pink and Green Nursery: Georgia’s Room

Pink and Green Nursery: Georgia’s Room

G14

The nursery.  The room that has to be perfect, down to the smallest detail.  (Even when it’s your second child and you’re fully aware the child will not even be in the nursery for several months….ya still want it perfect.) For Georgia’s room, I went back and forth over two styles: all white with lots [...]

Georgia On My Mind….

Georgia On My Mind….

G57

Meet Georgia Sloane! My little bundle of joy arrived on Jan 5 and we are smitten. Labor was a breeze compared to B (this time, the epidural WORKED!) and I am so thankful for that. Georgia made her entrance in the world 3 weeks earlier than expected, with a head of blond hair and quite [...]

Painted Bathroom Cabinets: A Fresh Update with Paint and Beadboard Wallpaper

Painted Bathroom Cabinets: A Fresh Update with Paint and Beadboard Wallpaper

IMG_8367-001

Remember my kitchen cabinet redo and my awful “Before” cabinets? Well, just like my kitchen, all of the cabinets in my bathrooms also suffered from a case of “boring.”  I decided I procrastinated the makeover long enough and I broke out the paint supplies…plus a new weapon.  Beadboard wallpaper.  I first read about using the wallpaper on cabinet [...]

Wooden Monogram Eye Candy

Wooden Monogram Eye Candy

"My craft room is mix of preppy and Lilly Pulitzer (Lilly drapes, Lilly rug and Lilly quilt on the sofa). I went to a garage sale and found vintage Lilly shorts that I cut up and framed to add to the theme! The room was finally complete when we hung my Southern Nest Monogram on the wall!" -Jessica

I feel so fortunate and touched that a Southern Nest monogram has graced the walls of nurseries, been part of weddings, traveled with women to be part of their new home and remind them of their Southern roots, served as inspiration for a room design or home improvement project…I am just nothing short of thankful.   If you see [...]

Witches and Mums and Polka Dots…Oh my!

I showed you all my painted pots…now here is the finished porch.  B and I headed out to a local farmer’s market to purchase our cornstalks.  If you are local to the Lake Norman area, check out Josh’s Farmers Market in Mooresville. (It is right off of Williamson Rd.)  They have a great selection and the most reasonable [...]

When In Doubt, Paint Some Polka Dots On It.

When In Doubt, Paint Some Polka Dots On It.

IMG_7961

In gearing up for my fall decorating, I knew I wanted to put a whimsical spin on my front door. My favorite form of whimsy? Black and white polka dots. I cannot get enough of them. I decided to put the pattern on some boring terra cotta pots.  In the right situation, I love an [...]

Miss Me?

Miss Me?

big brother 1

Well, guess what? I’m baaaaack! Yeah…I’ve been able to get the occasional post in here and there. But not many. I have been so busy with the operations of Southern Nest, I literally have not had the time. This time last year, Southern Nest functioned as a team of two people. Now, there are 10 [...]
