I love Belle Mer Graphics prints and these tropical watercolor prints are a perfect gift to update your mother’s bedroom or bathroom!
If you’ve been following us you might remember these French vintage coastal prints for our Living Room Refresh for One Room Challenge a few rounds ago from Belle Mer Graphics.
I just bought indigo sea life prints from Belle Mer Graphics that are perfect for our master bathroom!
If your mother loves design and a good book then she’ll love Kristy Woodson Harvey’s novels! Kristy’s books are wonderful southern fiction and all of them have a mother daughter element that makes you reflect on your own relationship with your mother. Her writing has touched me personally, and not just because I live in Charlotte and Kristy is a North Carolina native. I have read both Dear Carolina and Lies and Other Acts of Love and have passed them down to my mother. You can get them as a bundle on Amazon for under $30.
Dear Carolina is told thru the eyes of a biological and adoptive mother, who both love one little girl, while weaving in design elements. Lies and Other Acts of Love is a intergenerational tale of love, loss and loyalty told thru the eyes of a grandmother, Lovey, and granddaughter, Annabelle.
Slightly South of Simple is the first in an all-new series chronicling the journeys of three sisters and their mother—and a secret from their past that has the potential to tear them apart and reshape their very definition of what it means to be a family.
“Blue and white is a favorite combination–especially by the water!” -Design Chic (Lynn Morgan Design)
Kristy is founder of Design Chic, a popular interior design blog that she created with her mother, and her writing has appeared in numerous publications such as Southern Living, Domino, Houzz, Traditional Home etc. I also had the pleasure of being part of Holiday Seasonal Scape Blog hop with Kristy, and I am always inspired by her eye for design and her way with words!
I am now starting her third novel that debuted in April, Slightly South of Simple, and just like the others two books, I can’t put it down!
If your mother loves a good story, to entertain, lush gardens, a good laugh, and design, then she’ll love The Bee Cottage Story—How I Made a Muddle of Things and Decorated My Way Back to Happiness by Frances Schultz! Last month I attended The Charlotte Mint Museum’s Women’s Auxiliary Room to Bloom event and heard Frances speak about all of us having the room to bloom in our lives. “France’s popular House Beautiful magazine series on the makeover of her house, Bee Cottage, what began as a decorating book evolved into a memoir combining the best elements of both; beautiful photos and a compelling personal story. ”
What touched me about this accomplished women was that she finally found her happiness in doing what she was passionate about and surrounding herself with people who brought out the best in her! “Whoever we are, if we are in a situation that is demoralizing, it is ultimately going to be unhealthy as well. Feeling guilty or getting sick isn’t going to make anybody feel better, richer, or healthy as well. Serving a tribal belief to our individual determent is to sacrifice our own self-respect… Walking on egg shells in my relationship had to end. My fear of anger and disapproval served no one. ”
Giving the gift of health and fitness never goes out of style! Give a gift certificate to a gym or personal trainer. I’ve loved my gift of a membership at Burn Boot Camp!
If your mother loves to travel, florals and gardens, then she’ll love Paris In Bloom by Georgianna Lane!
Give your mother a beautiful lunch or dinner in her honor using design pieces that mean something to your mother like her favorite flower, special chinaware, or her favorite food. Check out our Mother’s Day Tablescape here for more inspiration!
Lastly, give her new handwoven hand towels or bath towels in her favorite color!
