Year after year, the festive spirit takes residence at my neighbor’s doorstep, where they masterfully craft and hang a captivating fruit arrangement called an Apple Fan. This time around, fueled by a determination to immerse myself in the artistry of holiday decor, I eagerly offered my assistance, keen to glean the secrets of their annual tradition. Together, we embarked on the creation of a breathtaking display that seamlessly blends nature’s bounty: magnolia leaves, fresh apples, fragrant boxwood, resilient cedar, and the unexpected yet delightful addition of a pineapple.

If the weather permits I always opt for dinners outdoors, especially now that we have a lush side yard in our new Charleston home. It’s the perfect space for our two year old, Julia, to run and play after dinner and of course our dog, Gracie, loves to watch the squirrels hop from tree to tree too. So we went outdoors! Fellow lifestyle blogger and fast friend, Kristin Chambless and I styled a spring-inspired tablescape to hopefully provide inspiration for your Easter table setting! We donned our Pink City Prints matching dresses that perfectly complimented the tablescape! I opted for the Lilac ..read more

Floral Forward Powder Room

Today I’m sharing my inspiration board for a floral inspired powder room that I designed for a home in Savannah, Georgia. The showstoppers are the Farrow and Ball Uppark (BP 549) covered walls and the pink Watermark wall mount sink. The Watermark sink is the same color as Farrow and Ball Setting Plaster so I painted the ceiling the same color to bring out the colorful sink. I loved the shape of the gold mirror from One Kings Lane. The curvature of the mirror really highlights the climbing flowers in the wallpaper. Other gold accents include a luxury brass shower center drain from Infinity Drai ..read more

A Feminine Bathroom Reveal

This Post is in Partnership with Garden State Tile. Thank You for Supporting Brands that Support Lavin Label. This sweet bathroom that I designed for a home in Savannah might take the cake for my favorite bathroom yet. It was an easy space to design because of the high ceilings and loads of natural light flowing in from the two windows. The front window overlooks a tree-line promenade and the side window overlooks a garden — so dreamy! When I renovate a bathroom, I always invest the tile and stone first because it makes the biggest impact. The color, pattern and shape of tile and stone can abs ..read more

You have probably noticed that this summer that I’ve taken a break from my blog and social channels. I’ve been working on a lot of things behind the scenes. So. Much. Going. On. Right. Now. You may know that I teach social media part-time at Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD), and I also have been offering interior decorating services to a handful of clients. And even though there has been a lot to juggle, this year has definitely been the most rewarding, especially now that I’m also a mom to a 16 month old! How is that even possible?! I feel like she was born yesterday. And, I’ve been ..read more

This Post is in Partnership with Garden State Tile. Thank You for Supporting Brands that Support Lavin Label. I would bet that many of you have updated your home in some way or another during this past year, whether it was adding new pillows to your sofa or renovating a kitchen. This pandemic has caused many of us to work from home and as a result truly think about what is important to us. Spending more time at home has been a blessing since Julia was born in May. We were forced to slow down, travel less and focus on family. To us it meant more last-minute picnics in the park, trips to the bea ..read more

This Post is in Partnership with Christmas Tree Shops AndThat! Thank You for Supporting Brands that Support Lavin Label. We’ve had so much rain these past few weeks, so it’s a real treat to finally experience sun and warmer temperatures.

So when I spotted these sweet and colorful pots from Christmas Tree Shops AndThat!, I knew that I had found my weekend project. With Julia in tow, I popped by our local nursery and purchased rosemary, cabbage and my ..read more

Last Minute Gift Idea That Gives Back
Lavin Label
by Monica
2y ago
When I hear many families talk about the adoption process, I often hear how long it takes for families and children to connect. Which is hard to believe because there are over 120,000 children in the United States Foster Care System who are waiting to be adopted. And the good news is that there are families who are licensed, approved and waiting to adopt these very children. Yet the child welfare system in the United States lacks appropriate tools to efficiently and appropriately connect children to families. This very reason is why I serve on the board of a non-profit called Adoption-Share. I ..read more

This Post is in Partnership with Christmas Tree Shops AndThat! Thank You for Supporting Brands that Support Lavin Label. This year my family and I are headed to Montage Palmetto Bluff to celebrate Christmas and our two pups will be in tow. Since both of them are on Santa’s nice list, they definitely needed a little something special from St. Nick under the tree. As a result, I hopped in my car and drove to my nearest Christmas Tree Shops AndThat! while listening to Christmas music and sipping a warm Chai Latte. I’ve mentioned this store on my blog many times before because it’s a great place t ..read more
