SATURDAY DESIGN SERIES: MODERN COASTAL ENTRY

Hi Y’all! I’ve decided to start a little series on Brieske Abode where I share inspirational design boards that I’ve created! I love getting inspiration from other’s spaces, but I often find myself really falling in love with one statement piece of the room and loving it, but wanting to add my own twist to it. This series will consist…

LIFE UPDATE + BLONDIE RECIPE

Hi Y’all! Life has been a whirlwind around here lately, hence the lack of posts #facepalm. A few weeks ago, Alton and I had a 6 month goal check-in and I realized that I had gotten VERY caught up in keeping up with the blog Jones’s and I was slacking on more pertinent goals that we have. To be quite…

CANE CHAIR UPDATE

STAYING AUTHENTIC IN A SOCIAL MEDIA SATURATED WORLD

Hi Y’all! I wanted to share something with you that has really been on my mind lately as I’ve really settled in to my new home here in Tampa.

HOUSE PLANT GUIDE

Hi y’all! A design intention I live by is “no room is complete without a statement plant.” There is not a room in our apartment that doesn’t have a plant living in it.

BEDROOM INSPIRATION

Hi y’all! Today, I wanted to share with you what I have in-store for our bedroom! Most of the furniture I have in there was either inherited, like the nightstand and dresser that have been in my family longer than I have, or given to me, like the timeless desk that my sweet friend Amanda gave to me when she…

EASIEST PALEO SWEET POTATOES

Hi Y’all! Today I’m sharing one of my absolute favorite recipes I make weekly! My husband and I like to follow a paleo diet as much as possible and these sweet potatoes are the easiest and yummiest addition to any meal.

BEST MINDFULNESS BOOKS FOR 20 SOMETHINGS

Hey y’all! I created this blog because I wanted to curate a space to share my creativity and my ability to share my creativity with you would not be possible without my mindfulness practice. I was raised in the Episcopal church (a liberal step down from the Catholic Church) and mindfulness was always taught as a component of our relationship…

FRENCH PROVINCIAL NIGHTSTAND MAKEOVER

This sweet little French Provincial nightstand has been with me through just about everything in life. My grandmother owned this nightstand and dresser set well before I was born and when my parents turned my nursery into my big girl room, my grandmother gave them the set for me to have. Furniture has so much character, especially when it’s passed…
