This week's purchase is slightly bigger than most weeks! But if all goes well, by the end of the week we will be the new owners of this Bermuda-style home!
If you've been following us for a while, you may remember that we started the house hunting process back in June. It's been quite a long, and arduous process, but I'm starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel...I think...! We are so excited, but there is a ton of work to be done! Stay tuned for all of the updates on our progress!
While Christin has papering walls on her mind, I too am dying to incorporate some new grasscloth in my home! And though I would also like to add it to my walls one day, I'm thinking some new grasscloth-wrapped furniture and raffia accessories may be in my near future.
We'll be adding some new goodies to the marketplace over the next couple of weeks, but first a look back at what's still available. Some reduced prices too!

Our whole week in Napa Valley was spent visiting the most amazing vineyards, with each one bringing it's own unique reason why it made for a wonderful visit. At one stop we'd be in awe of the history of the grounds, the next stop tasting in caves. An intimate tasting with the winemaker themselves, and a relaxed porch tasting had us saying each new stop was our favorite. Our whole week had been meticously timed and planned (thanks to our wine-obsessed hubbies) to manage going from appointment to appointment and fitting in stops for great eats along the way.
On our last day, we visited two wineries before lunch, and made our way to the fabulous Auberge du Soleil for a terrace lunch. Not wanting to rush one of our last meals, we were actually left with an open afternoon! Left wondering if we'd be able to squeeze one last tasting in, we remembered a nearby vineyard that was recommended before we left. And if there was ever a time to say that we saved the best for last, this was it!
How amazing would this set-up be for a dinner party?!
But with a property this beautiful, we couldn't share just one photo!
An oversized lap pool nestled in between vineyards for morning swims!
That sky?! #nofilter
The venue is quite perfect for events, or you can simply visit for lunch. They staff a gourmet chef for daily meal preparation and wine pairings!
The wine wasn't half bad either!
It was truly one of the most generous tastings of our whole week, with the winemaker pouring each tasting personally. We didn't want to leave!
And if all that wasn't enough, there is a fabulous boutique on the grounds containing custom upholstery using only luxury silk scarves. It was so fab it deserves its own post. Stay tuned!
A few months back my husband picked up this adorable petite gilded French armchair at a local consignment shop for a total steal. He said, "We can put in our (future) daughters room one day." Awwwwww!!
And kudos to him for having such a good eye!
We just got it back from the upholsterer and couldn't be happier with the results! I love the combination a more modern, graphic, bold fabric with the traditional French antique frame and silhouette.
