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 […]

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 […]

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, […]


Around the House, summer edition

by Edie Wadsworth on June 7, 2012

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 […]


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 […]


Reupholstered Sofa and a Chevron Pillow

by Edie Wadsworth on October 8, 2010

sofa before/after

This poor sofa sat in my dusty basement for ten years at the other house. I always wanted to reupholster it. But you know, kids and life and laundry and such. Then when we moved, it allllMOST went to Goodwill. But instead, I persevered and took it to Wayne at Daniel’s ReUpholstery. He’s meticulous and […]


Lake Cottage Kitchen :: Before and Afters

by Edie Wadsworth on August 28, 2010

~~~a few sources have been added to the bottom of this post~~~ It’s almost ridiculous how long it’s taken me to get this kitchen post done. But in my defense, my light fixtures were just installed this week. They apparently sat in the Atlantic Ocean for 2 months waiting to get through customs. And sadly, […]


Before/After: Painted Furniture

by Edie Wadsworth on July 31, 2010

I’ve had this piece of furniture since the beginning of time and why on earth I haven’t painted it before now, I do not know. You probably have this piece of furniture too, don’t you? Or at least a side table or armoire like it? Well, something told me it was time. Time to give […]


Gallery Wall in lieu of kitchen photos

by Edie Wadsworth on July 23, 2010

Our basement at the lakehouse has been officially declared ‘the Mancave’.   It has housed many {sweaty} boys this summer and has been sorely neglected—as in, I try my best NOT to ever go down there. And then there’s the dilemma of where to put all my art and photographs.   This house has no […]


I think I’m in love

by Edie Wadsworth on June 19, 2010


So, here’s where we stand: 1. The countertops came in on Thursday and they are seven kinds of wonderful. Crisp, clean white quartz (the color ‘snow white’ from Zodiac). I wanted to snuggle up on them and have a sleepover. I missed them during the night. They’re amazing. 2. Before the dust could clear from […]


The little kitchen that could…..

by Edie Wadsworth on June 11, 2010


If you think you’re tired of waiting on this kitchen, imagine me—cooking a big heaping pile of onions at the exact same time the guys are installing that cabinet over the microwave.  Saw dust was flying everywhere and I think the installer could hardly believe I was cooking right in the middle of it all. […]


Kitchen Dilemma

by Edie Wadsworth on May 4, 2010


I’m sitting on my new deck watching the geese and egrets fly by and the lake water ripple, drinking a wonderful cup of coffee as I type this.   I still haven’t shaken the feeling that I’m on vacation—in Hilton Head—with no definite endpoint for my return ‘home’.   The only downside to living your […]
