tbt {Sunroom Fabric}

It's hard to believe this post was from a year ago. One year ago, J and I were choosing so many different things for the renovation of the Acorn Cottage. This fabric turned drapes in the sunroom is still a favorite of ours.

With the help of Patricia from Fairfax Fabrics on Magazine Street, I think that J and I have finally settled upon the fabric for the drapes in the sun room.  The colors -green, blue, corals - will look great with the planned art work and furnishings for the room. The wallpaper will be a neutral grasscloth, the sofa is an off white herringbone print, and accents will be in greens and blues. There will be a natural fiber area rug covering the brick floor.








Choosing fabrics is fun, but there are way too many to sort and look through. I make decisions pretty easily but finding the perfect fabric is always a difficult one. I am happy with this decision. Check!

Here is the sun room:

Patriotic Touches

I know I'm a little late, for J and I were on vacation for Flag Day, the day I usually set out my red, white, and blue. But as soon as I unpacked, I added the American flag out front as well as the newly created patriotic acorn custom-designed by New Orleans artist, Cynthia Kolls.










I will be adding some patriotic bunting to the fence closer to the 4th of July holiday.

Red, White, and Blue, y'all!

Uptown Acorn Travels {Grand Hotel}

It's no secret that J and I adore the Grand Hotel in Point Clear, Alabama. If you have not been, you must put this resort on your must-stay list. Upon our way home from Watercolor, we stopped for a couple nights and days in Point Clear. The stay is always a wonderful one especially laying by the adults-only pool with food and drink service. It does not get better than that. We were also pleased with the updated on-site restaurants, Bayside Grille and Southern Roots. Cocktails at Bucky's Lounge is always a treat!

















This high-end beach and golf resort lies 3.4 miles from the Fairhope Municipal Pier and 3.8 miles from the Fairhope Museum of History. 

The relaxed rooms come with free Wi-Fi, flat-screen TVs, coffeemakers and balconies (some with bay views). Suites add separate bedrooms and pull-out couches.


In addition to 2 golf courses, the property has 7 bars and restaurants, including a casual seafood eatery. There's also an indoor pool, a lagoon-style pool with a kids' pool, and a hot tub, plus a fitness center, and an elegant spa offering massage and beauty treatments. Other amenities include 35,000 sq. ft. of conference space, plus beach access.



The Grand Hotel, y'all!
