Welcome to Calypso in the Country

Welcome!  My name is Shelley and this is my blog – Calypso in the Country!

While you’re here, I hope to inspire you with home decor, entertaining tips, tablescapes and anything to make your home more beautiful! 

My decorating style leans toward traditional with a coastal twist and a splash of British Colonial!   I love adding color to my home but I tone it down with neutrals and textures. 

Basically, my goal is to make my home feel like a vacation that never ends.  Speaking of vacations, I occasionally share our travels on the blog as well.  Although as a busy family, we don’t get away as much as we’d like!
