Pretty in the Pines was created in the summer of 2014 and has been providing inspiration, ideas, and tips for home decorating, casual outfits, and more ever since. Though currently living in New York City, the name “Pretty in the Pines” originated from my home state of North Carolina and will always remind me of where this space started.
