Welcome! My name is Shelley and this is my blog – Calypso in the Country!
I’m so happy you stopped by!…
I live in New Jersey with my husband, two teenage boys and a golden retriever, Rosie. Even though you won’t see much of my family on the blog, Rosie makes an appearance now and then…especially on my Instagram feed. Never a dull moment with that character…
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!
Now since you were so kind to stop by, I am going to give you a sampling of what my blog is like. Here are a few posts that might give you an idea of what to expect around here…
