Living with Marble Countertops, a cautionary tale

by Edie Wadsworth on April 23, 2013

living with marble countertops

This post has been a long time coming.  So many of you have asked me if I love the marble, after living with it for awhile. It’s complicated, okay.  Real things always are. And let me say that EVERYBODY warned me against marble.  I didn’t think the counter top guy was gonna sell it to […]

Living with Open Shelving, the pros and cons

by Edie Wadsworth on April 18, 2013

I’ve been singing the praises of open shelving for years.  When I remodeled my first kitchen and painted my lower cabinets turquoise, I took off upper doors to give my kitchen the look of open shelving, without having to start from scratch. Then, I remodeled the original lake kitchen and added a plethora of open […]

BHG digital {my house}

by Edie Wadsworth on April 16, 2013

Darlene informed me  this weekend that there was digital version of my BHG’s story that can be downloaded onto mobile devices. I was so happy because a) there was a photo of all the kids that was not shown in the magazine and b) several of you asked me if I had extra copies, which […]

Striped Walls in the Bathroom

by Edie Wadsworth on December 10, 2012

From the very beginning of our rebuild after the fire, I knew I wanted a statement bathroom. The half bath on the main level is tiny and I’ve thought of nearly every possible  option for making the tiny space shine. I started a ‘bathrooms’ board on Pinterest and had my eye on this striped bathroom […]

This is day 12 of a 31 Day series on hospitality. Start from the beginning here. Let me start out this post by saying that everything I ever learned about making a guest room comfortable, I learned from my friend Susan.  As a matter fact, almost everything I learned about everything was from her.  She […]

My Paint Colors

by Edie Wadsworth on August 25, 2012

Because this well could be the most asked question in recent times, I thought it was high time I put all the paint colors in one post.  Here’s the only glitch.  I can’t remember the paint color of the girls’ vanity and I keep forgetting to call and ask my cabinet maker.  I’ll do it, […]


The Sultry Master

by Edie Wadsworth on July 10, 2012


I recently updated my About page, in case you’re interested! Until I can decide which of the 356 pictures to show you from our Fourth of July Fest, I thought I’d show you some progress in my bedroom. I’m finally getting furniture and some art work in this room—which means it’s starting to have that […]

Did I mention I love summer? I’m working on a post to tell you all about what we’re doing this summer but in case I never finish it, you should know that I love summer with all my southern soul. In fact, this house is really at its peak in summer. It’s a summer house […]


Decorating with Plants

by Edie Wadsworth on April 23, 2012

My dear friend and blogging mentor the Nester is hosting a great party today featuring plants in the home.  I LOVE my house plants and am so excited to participate. I confess that I’m a little lazy with house plants.  I do great for awhile until I don’t.  I need house plants that are a […]


31 Days|Day 3 Defining my Vision

by Edie Wadsworth on October 3, 2011

When you’re building a house or remodeling your kitchen or rearranging your furniture in your living room, it helps to have a vision.   I learned a lot about vision while working with Darlene from Fieldstone Hill Design. She’s got oodles of posts on finding and clarifying and sticking to your vision. Give your style […]


Master Bedroom Vision Board

by Edie Wadsworth on July 31, 2011

While I was camping-it-up in MN, I got a fun little email surprise. Darlene finished my vision board for the master. This is my take on restrained, sultry, and symmetric.   There are some yummy pieces here and I may not be able to swing them all. But I love the feel of this room. […]


The Workroom Design Files

by Edie Wadsworth on June 20, 2011

I think this is my favorite design so far!! I’m so excited about this room. It’s a laundry room/craft room/office/schoolroom. And I knew that since the girls and I would be spending alot of time in here, I wanted it to be functional and organized but without sacrificing beauty. I wanted to be inspired by […]


Living Room Design Board

by Edie Wadsworth on May 30, 2011

Darlene and I have been at it again and I couldn’t wait to show you the design board for the living room. It’s been such a fun collaborative effort, although she does all the hard work of placing and measuring and editing and I do all the fun work and sending a million links of […]


Skirted Table Dessert Buffet

by Edie Wadsworth on November 23, 2010

dessert buffet

I’m not gonna lie, it’s hard to host anything at your house when you homeschool. There are books and #2 pencils and notebook paper e.very.where. This buffet that I’ve had for many years has recently become our locker. It holds all our books and is usually hideous like this. But without our beloved school room, […]
