Talk To Me

I want you to create images today and I need your aesthetic advice.   I am potentially embarking on some exciting business opportunities and I want to know what YOU want. Not what you want in the sense of tall, dark, and handsome in a 9,000 square foot perfectly adorned house landscaped with boxwood with 3.5 children and  flat abs. Ooops…Would be nice though, right? Well, maybe too many kids- ha!

No, I am talking about what you want to see in terms of reasonably priced good quality home goods. Obviously, potted boxwood in pretty blue and white pots would be great. Let’s be honest, boxwood is expensive and hard to maintain. Would you go faux if it could pass as the real deal? Also, what about a variety of sizes?

What other home products do you find to be overpriced but a necessary luxury? I think livable luxury is hard to achieve, and I believe that everyone deserves a right to live with lovely things. Also, if you believe you have a product that has potted boxwood potential and would like to see it featured here in the future, please email me at

Here is my current mood board of inspiration. Above all, it is YOU that inspires me. XO TPB

    • Hi Margi,

      I have never heard of that happening. I will pinterest my photos now so you can repin them from my Pinterest account. I will also ask my website developer why that is happening! Thank you for letting me know!

    • When I try to pin whatever photo, the picture of the mirror with the ikat wallpaper is what keeps getting pinned, regardless of which photo I’ve selected.

      • Throughout your posts, I see “boxwoods” which is incorrect, there is no word boxwoods. Even my spell check is redlining it now. Boxwood is both singular and plural.

        • Hi Susan! Thank you for your feedback. Where do you see “boxwoods” in a post? I always try to keep it the correct form of boxwood. I hate to have grammatical errors! All the best- TPB!

      • That is a bug of the Pinterest app! I have tried to get this fixed many times. I am so sorry! I wish I had more control over that! Thanks for reading TPB! XO- CD

  1. Large Foo dogs for the garden, Pagodas, Faux apple blossom/cherry blossom branches to be displayed in large blue and white urns, large (24 x 24 or even 36 x 36) outdoor pillows. I hate having to have them custom made every year! Stylish mailboxes (I had to replace mine this year and could not find a thing!)…….

    • Thanks for the feedback, Diana. Since many of my the pictures featured are outsourced, I can’t always manipulate the size. When the pictures are my own, I will always make them larger! The bigger the better, I must agree! Thanks for reading TPB!! XO- CD
