By |August 2nd, 2019|

I sit quietly in my living room, a room I wouldn’t sit in for almost a year before my marriage ended.  It was like the silence of what was happening under the surface of me was too piercing in here, too deafening.  Too revealed.  I retreated to spending time in my bedroom most days when […]

Meet Marsh Collective-A Video Series for You

By |March 16th, 2017|

Every time I’ve sat down to tell you more about the people I work with now, I just sort of stare at the screen.  I’m serious.  I just get stuck.  This is not because there’s not a lot to say, in fact, it’s the opposite.  There is so much, too much even, to say about […]

Photo Shoots & Sneak Peeks

By |August 19th, 2016|


I know you do it too.

I just put some decisions off and off and off.  And when I bite the proverbial bullet, I wonder why it took me so long.  Working in the more studio-like store this week has been incredible.  Really.

I’ll show you how we’ve rearranged the space after some final pieces come together, […]

The dining room makeover, to date, still stands as the most popular post on this blog.

And that one about the chicken soup that grew hair.

I’ve been in the market for some new dining room furniture and […]

Design Inspiration: Tracery Interiors

By |January 25th, 2016|

While digging around for some inspiration last week, I stumbled across one of my favorite designer’s portfolio.  These spaces are too good not to share with you….




I love a neutral space, but what makes these rooms sing is all the texture.  The paneled walls, reclaimed beams, natural fiber rugs and chunky linen fabrics make them […]

Planning a Creative Retreat

By |July 23rd, 2015|

Well we are back from our Creative Retreat. This one was a little different than the last.

Last year’s Creative Retreat, we spent a ton of time on customer quality service and infusing magic into our business, and lots of energy defining our styles individually and as a brand.  And of course we had lots of […]

When Life Gets You Down | Kaitlyn’s Things

By |June 3rd, 2015|

And let’s face it… Life can get you down!

Like Mondays and the end of Harry Potter Weekend.. Or those things always seem to get me down.

But when life gets your down.. there is always those certain things that help get us back up.

So with that being said I thought it was only fair to share some of […]

Behind the Scenes with Matt

By |May 27th, 2015|

Boys will be boys.

That’s all there is to it.

So when we first decided to “re-invent” the back of PI, I knew Matt would be more than happy to come in and tear some things down.

As far as him helping us build some stuff for the back… the jury is still out!

Although let’s get real, anyone […]

Memorial Day Outdoor Fun

By |May 22nd, 2015|

Memorial Day is the unofficial first day of summer.

So what better way to ring in the summer season than with a day filled with outdoor games. Head to the beach, the lake or make your backyard your own personal vacation this Memorial day. Here are some of my outdoor favorites!


First up… Giant Jenga.

We […]

Dining Room Decorating

By |February 18th, 2015|

It happens every year.

Sometime in January/February, I start looking around the house and feel the need to switch things up a bit.  My brain starts firing on all cylinders.  We can paint the guest room, and then I need to blog about the planked wall in the bedroom but I should probably paint the bedside […]

Julie’s Feminine Glam Bedroom Inspiration

By |April 4th, 2014|

I’m trying to take it easy this weekend, but I wanted to pop in to share some inspiration for a makeover I’m about to tackle next week….exciting!

Remember Julie?

Well, we’re gearing up to work on her bedroom to make it a bit more of a retreat for her.  We’re going very feminine glam.  I […]

The Truth About Creativity

By |March 19th, 2014|

This weekend was pretty amazing.

We, and by we, I mean my team and I, headed down to the beach condo in Florida for the first ever PI Creative Leadership Retreat.  It was heavenly: by day, we met and did creative work and brainstormed and planned and by evening we laughed more than is necessary, but […]

My Brother, the Crazy-Talented, Up and Coming Landscape Photographer

By |February 26th, 2014|

You know that movie, My Father, the Hero??

I loved that movie.  I mean, y’all.  Young love, sweet father/daughter storyline, beautiful beaches…what’s not to love?

Sometimes, because of my love for said movie, in my quest to describe someone it simply rolls off the tongue.

“Jenny, the Delightful”

Office Ideas & Inspiration

By |February 10th, 2014|

Ever since an eventful morning heading to the airport last week (more on that soon), Lisa and I have been working away in her and her husband’s soon to be elegant and sophisticated office.  For those of you who don’t know, Lisa is one of my very dearest friends in the world (I […]

Boy’s Room Design Board–the plan for Gray’s room

By |January 6th, 2014|

Good Monday morning to y’all!

I’m anxiously/excitedly preparing for a 21 day nutritional challenge (which I’ll share more about later this week), so I’m cooking chicken ground turkey by the pound ahead of time and packing 90 florets of broccoli into individual containers today.

I really am excited.  Promise.

I’m […]

Staying Flexible

By |January 3rd, 2014|

Happy New Year, friends!

It’s been a week of cleaning, and (finally) taking down Christmas, and spending some wonderfully lazy days in our post-traumatic Christmas life.  It’s been lovely.

We’ve also been purging.  Since last year when we began simplifying our excess, we do this every few months now.  I’m constantly […]

Christmas Home Tour, part 2: The Office

By |December 14th, 2013|

Good morning!

We truly had so much fun yesterday showing you most of our Holiday home!  You all lavished us with kind and encouraging words.  Most of the time I feel like our house is completely a wreck, so it’s a lot of fun to snap some pretty pictures and spend time […]

Fuss-Free Holiday Decorating–from a real imperfect mama

By |December 12th, 2013|

We all know how it goes.

You take out the mounds of Christmas decorations because you want to, and by the time your little ones are done coming behind you and pulling things off the tree or knocking a Santa off the dresser, you’re wondering why you pulled it all out in […]
