A BLAZE

These two lovely pictures were on pinterest next to each other and I just had to share. What a lovely sunburnt orangey-red that is!

NIGHT STAND

Bedside tables are nothing that people get particularly excited about but it happens to be the first thing you see when you wake up and the last thing you see before going to bed. If I had my way, I would always have fresh flowers on my bedside table. For some reason bedside tables are ridiculously expensive. I have found some adorable solutions no matter what your style...

AMAZING EMILY

Emily Henderson is by far one of my favorite designers. I love how inviting her spaces are. Also, her designs are approachable and inspirational to those that can't afford expensive interior decor. She always nails it with the vignettes and the color combinations. Can't rave enough about her!

Click here for more amazing spaces from her portfolio.










A few things...
- She loves her tufted velvet
- Anything shiny is a perfect accent
- Cool lighting can change a space
- Mix hot pink, navy and kelly green together as much as possible

Again, cant say enough how much I love her work.

LESS IS REALLY MORE?

It seems that lately i have been attracted to decor that is so simple but it makes me wonder...is it practical? I know myself too well to think that I could pull off something so simple. I love layered bright looks with tons of patterns and textures. Which side do you fall on?

RAIN RAIN

How cute are these rain jackets from British brand (meaning they know rain) Boden? They arent that expensive either! It almost makes me wish for rainy days.



**Apologies for those who actually have sunshine, its a "toasty" 60 degrees here.

THE GREAT PINTEREST DILEMMA

This weekend I spent a good part of my Sunday at work (which happens every once in awhile in advertising) but the upside was that I got to spend 4+ hours scanning Pinterest in between finalizing the presentation. Now I do like Pinterest, I think its an amazing site with all sorts of helpful information and beautiful aspirational pictures...but...people take it too far sometimes with the DIYs a la...


And some of the things make me want to barf...


I also learned that people are crazy about a) cleaning things and making their own cleaning solutions b) laundry rooms c) cute sayings plastered all over their house and d) unrealistic organizing.

Exhibit A

Just take some oranges and jam them in a mason jar with some vinegar...


Exhibit B

Duh! Everyone needs a TV in their laundry room.


Exhibit C



Exhibit D

How does this work?


Is this real life?


Since I have now complained about Pinterest for a good part of the post, now its time to get to the good stuff. There are spaces that inspire you to try something new or to look at something in a different way. Here are some recent Pinterest treasures...

Like nothing I have ever really seen before.


A beautifully serene space.


I love the textures and the combination of patterns.


Lastly, this leather chair is just plain awesome.
