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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

For the first cool Saturday of the season, we decided there was no better way to spend it than to do some apple picking.  We packed our little squirt up and headed to Carrigan Farms in Mooresville, NC. B was so excited.  He couldn’t believe he got to take the apples off the trees and KEEP [...]

When my dear friend Melissa learned she was having a little boy, three friends and I knew we wanted to do something different and special. We decided to have a shower based on “Storybooks.” We decided to pick different children’s books and create a station based around each book. “Green Eggs and Ham” Baby Beluga [...]

The other day, B and I popped into Dollar Store to browse for some goodies for his upcoming THIRD (can you believe it?!?) birthday party!  We are having his little buddies over to do an “Almost Campout” in our backyard.  They are too little to truly camp out, but he loves the idea.  I am [...]

A Gilded Home-Decorating with Gold

A Gilded Home-Decorating with Gold

Lisa Sheery Interieurs

 Blame it on the gold jewelry gracing style magazines or the glitzy golden walls at Kate Spade, but something has me yearning to bring gold into my home. So, how does one incorporate gold into home decor without screaming Liberace?  It’s the simple act of pairing the gold with a muted color palette, mixing in [...]

I have received so many emails asking about the nautical dresser I painted for B’s big boy room.  It was pretty easy to do, so I will break the steps down for you here. Sadly, I do not have a before picture.  The dresser was previously painted black and had brushed nickel hardware.  I knew I wanted a [...]
