Feature Friday: Place of my Taste

Today’s Feature Friday is blogger, Aniko who blogs at Place of my Taste.  She shares beautiful DIY and home decor projects, as well as tasty looking recipes and photography tips on her blog.  In fact, she was a Haven speaker this year, teaching her tips on photography to our attendees and was so well received. She knows what she’s doing with the camera!


I love to feature different styles on Feature Friday and Aniko’s is more of a modern and colorful vibe.  I love what she’s done in her home.  This is the entry with organizing system in place.


A colorful hallway adds a happy feel.


She recently updated her family room and it’s very cozy with modern and traditional elements.




I like her mix of contemporary art in her spaces for splashes of color.





Breakfast table with colorful yellow chairs and a modern table.


Again, all the color makes for a happy space.

Full view of the dining room with rustic wood buffet.


Her home office looks like a great space to get work done and it looks so organized.  I wish I was this organized, I try but it doesn’t seem to last long.

Beautiful space!

Her children’s rooms are very happy with lots of colorful hues as well.



What kid would not enjoy their own teepee?


Master bedroom with a mix of mid century modern and boho.



An update to the master bathroom looks so clean and fresh.  I love that little lobster painting.

Aniko is so talented with styling and photography and her whole blog is a showcase of recipes and styling all with her beautiful photos, so stop over to Place of My Taste for lots more inspiration!

Fashion over 50: White Jeans And Coral

The summer is coming to a close and while I love summer, I'm always glad to see Fall arrive with cooler temps and that first feel of a chill in the air.  Fall is at the top of my favorites list for weather and I welcome it with open arms after the heat of summer we experience here in the South.  When I'm at the beach, I love hot weather, but out and about doing everyday things, it feels draining … Read More»

Charming Apalachicola, FL

apalachicola fl013

As a final part of my recent coastal vacation, today I'm sharing the charming town of Apalachicola, FL.  As I mentioned earlier, the only time I've visited this town was 5 years ago with my friend, Vicki and it was a quick drive through the little coastal ton and a drive out to St. George.  It has always stuck with me as being such a quaint town and I can see why people love it here.  It doesn't … Read More»

Lovely St. George Island, FL

st george island fl027

If you've never been to St. George Island, you're in for a treat with this post. It truly is more like Old Florida used to be on the Gulf.  Sitting on the Gulf of Mexico and surrounded by Apalachicola Bay, there are unspoiled beaches, with large and small beach cottages, but no high rises to be seen.  Now I do have to say that the sand is not quite as white and sugary as the sands of Destin and … Read More»

Feature Friday: The Hays House

After Haven, I took a couple days to recuperate and then left for the beach on Wednesday for 4 nights.  Mark and his entire extended family go to the beach every August and stay on St. George Island, FL for a whole week in beach houses.  Once it was decided that I would go down there after Haven was over, I looked online to book a place for myself.  I knew that Apalachicola was close and looked on … Read More»

Fashion over 50: Black and White Maxi Dress

I took the opportunity to have pics taken on the porch at the Air B&B I stayed in, The Hays House.  It makes a great backdrop for fashion.  I just love the black and white damask print in this long maxi dress and it's perfect for a beach vacation.  It's almost an empire style dress, the waistline is not true waist, but slightly above, but I think it's very flattering. The fabric on the … Read More»

Haven Conference 2016 Recap!

Haven Conference DIY Bloggers Atlanta Buckhead Grand Hyatt Event IMG_0204

Five years ago, the Haven Conference was born.   When I think back to where I was 5 years ago, it's nothing short of a miracle that all of this came together when we stepped out in blind faith and started a DIY/Home decor blogging conference from scratch. I think I've said it before, but it truly was a God thing.  It was scary, but we felt such a passion for doing it and so it happened the first … Read More»

House for Hope Project Update

House for Hope

Earlier this year, I told you all that I'm going to be involved in a very worthy charity event in the Nashville, TN area called House for Hope.  The builders of this beautiful neighborhood and house are Carbine and Associates. You can read that first post for more details about the house and project, but basically they are raising money and hope to raise around $100K for children's charities in … Read More»
