The clawfoot tub is a fixture that has truly withstood the test of time. Case in point: the new and reinvented clawfoot tubs are remarkably similar to their vintage counterparts, proving that the design is virtually timeless. In decades past, many people unfortunately discarded their “outdated” clawfoot tubs in favor of newer models, but today […]
Southern Living Idea House by Historical Concepts One of my favorite design elements in a home is charming outdoor lighting. I’ve added an outdoor lantern to the porch of almost every house we have owned in the past. So far in this house we haven’t changed any outdoor lighting, but these delightful ideas are inspiring me!

Hello it is me again, Vidya from Whats Ur Home Story here to share a quick and easy project idea. The word on my mind this year is Organize. Be it in the kitchen, laundry, or closet a little bit of organization goes a long way. And as you all know baskets are a great […]
From time to time I like to share some of my FAQ from readers on the blog. Today I thought I would answer a question I get quite often about this room we call our “media room.” I haven’t talked about this room much, so no wonder there are always questions about the sectional and how it’s holding […]
In the aftermath of today’s “blizzard,” we could all use a little bit of sunshine in our lives. The bad news: the sun’s not due to shine (at least not to our standards) for another three months. Fortunately there’s plenty of sun-inspired home decor to brighten up even the bleakest days. Bring a ray of […]

With Valentine’s Day only a few days away, I have love on my mind. I thought it would be fun to create a chalkboard art print that can be used […]
Navy Blue interiors are classic!! Often associated with nautical themes, navy blue is much more complex and sophisticated than red, white and blue. I like to pair navy with shades of brown and taupe. Metallic finishes can be silver or gold tones, but I prefer shades of copper and gold. And if you really want […]

Lee Ann Thornton in House Beautiful I love analyzing photos of rooms to notice design ideas and find takeaway tips I can use in my own home. What makes a room memorable? Even if we can’t remodel a kitchen in the same way, the principles we take away can be applied to our own space in small ways […]
It wasn't nearly the dramatic birth story that Evie had, but Margot came just as fast! I went in for my 38 week appointment on the morning of the 14th and found out that the baby had flipped and was breech again! It was hugely disappointing for me. I had worked so hard to get her to turn three or four different times - it looked like she just preferred to be head up for some reason. I had gotten more comfortable with the idea of a c-section (whatever it takes to get them here safe, right?), but I still wanted to try to avoid surgery if possible since I had been able to with my other births.
The last couple of visits, the umbilical cord had been wrapped around Margot's head, but this time the cord was out of the way and my doctor wanted to turn her. He scheduled a version procedure at the hospital for that same afternoon, which is where they try to manually turn the baby. It is about as uncomfortable as it sounds. After almost an hour of digging into my belly (which is bruise central now), my doctor finally got Margot to turn head down. We talked and talked about our options and we decided to break my water and get her delivered before she could flip again. It was a hard decision, because I don't really love the idea of an induction, but I really didn't want a c-section if it could be avoided.
Just a few short hours after my water broke, tiny, perfect Margot joined us. I feel like I got so much insight into what happened with Evie's labor this time. I learned just how fast my body goes through transition - I went from 4cm to a birthed baby in about 30 minutes! That half hour is insanely intense, but also kind of great that the really hard part is over so quickly, right?
We have the most serious perma heart eyes for Margot. I have a feeling this kid will never learn to crawl or walk - she is being held for about 23 hours a day! We just can't get enough of her. I pretty much just want to stare at her for the rest of my life.
I'm easing my way back into work (slowly) and have a goal to post here a couple times a week. And of course I'll be on Instagram and Pinterest every day. As always, thank you, thank you, thank you for all the support and well-wishes about Margot. I really love and appreciate you guys. It has been amazing to get to share my life with you all for the past seven years and feel you cheering me on every step of the way. xoxoxo
