Happy Tuesday! I hope you enjoyed the long holiday weekend. Here’s what we were up to + a tour of our banana leaf master bedroom and backyard at Casa Golightly!

We loved all the natural light this room got, however, for privacy, we added custom drapes.
But I always loved pulling them open and opening the sliding glass doors to let the outdoors in.
The master bedroom looked out to the pool (the bedroom is behind those sliding glass doors), which was a lovely way to wake up.
It also had beautiful mountain views, which could also be seen from the living room and dining room.
We kept things very simple, with the only other furniture being white Hollywood Regency-inspired nightstands and this little dresser.
While a TV lived on top most of the time, when it came time to staging the house for sale, I styled the dresser with a few books and fun accessories.
This playful gold duck mirror and swan jewelry holder fit the bill.
Pun so intended.
We also hung a piece of Fred Baby art above the dresser. I love this piece: Joshua Tree Shimmer.
I also love this little clutch. Tip: Use your favorite fashion pieces as decor!
We also added a bench at the end of the bed.
This striped bench played up the Beverly Hills Hotel vibe of the banana leaf bedding.
I should note that for staging we moved this queen sized bed from the guest room into the master bedroom to make the room feel bigger. The bed we had in this room most of the time was this upholstered bed, which you may remember from Girls Night In with Kaylee!
That’s a wrap on Casa Golightly house tour pics!
What do you think?
Oh, and as for the weekend, Kristen came to visit. It was so nice to catch up, watch old movies (finally saw All About Eve – OMG, so good!), play ping pong, swim and enjoy the hot tub (even though I did get stung by a bee, or rather, I stung the bee accidentally — sorry bee!). David and Stacie Flinner popped by too and it was fun to hear about their around-the-world trip. It’s always great meeting online friends in real life, plus it brought back great memories of the time Fred Baby and did our own sabbatical. Time to do that again? We’ll see…
Thank you for taking the time to read + if you have any questions, ask away!
