Hi guys! I hope your week is going swimmingly. I’m dying a little inside right now over Lauren of A Lovely Lark‘s kitchen.
I love how everything is color coordinated right down to the recipe box (!).
Sometimes I get torn between what color scheme I like in homes. I love an all white neutral palette à la Millay Vintage, but I also love me some good colorful (pastel) accents too. What about you? Do you lean more toward muted or bold and bright colors?
Head over to A Lovely Lark for a full list of furniture & decor sources.
She has an adorable daughter, Goldie (who quite often appears in her outfit posts). One day while mindlessly scrolling, I found Goldie’s bedroom. The little girl’s room I wish I had. That’s all.
There’s only a small window of opportunity for being able to get away with that much pink; probably ages 0 to 7. But come on guys, can we just talk about the cuteness factor? My heart is filled with too much love this Monday. ♥
Tell me you didn’t have this song playing in your head when you read the title. It’s a killer workout song AND it’s a great motivational line to get your butt in gear for achieving awesome things in life. Which is why I LOVE this banner collaboration between EmmaJaneNation (a blogger & photographer) and Zana (an awesome South African brand you should totally know about if you don’t already).
The Turn Down for What song is pretty grungy rap (a.k.a. not my style), so of course I love the girlified banner version of the lyrics in pink.
The collaboration was limited edition, with only 15 banners printed. I’m super sad that they’re all sold out. I would love to have one in my office.
Do you have a motivational mantra you tell yourself?
I don’t know about you, but this week has me wiped out already. And it’s only Tuesday! Uh oh. I’d love to spend the rest of the day relaxing in Jacquelyn’s bedroom. Aren’t the colors so soothing? I love that blue. Oh for it to be the weekend again…
“When it comes to interior design, I’m of the belief that contrast is king! I wanted our bedroom to feel calm and serene, with an unexpected hint of glamour. The linen bedding feels lived in and loved, which I adore. But by incorporating some gold-dipped toss cushions and a sequined throw, I ended up with a subtle yet welcome contrast, and just the right amount of interest!”
Check out more photos of Jacquelyn’s bedroom here. I’m also super excited for Jacquelyn because she just launched her own interior design business! Any Toronto people reading this blog? Be sure to hit Jacquelyn up for your designing, arranging and re-arranging needs!
Judging from the looks of her bedroom, I wouldn’t mind having her help decorate MY space!
You know what I sometimes do for fun? Sometimes I browse airbnb for fun. I always end up finding the most wonderfully homey/unique/exotic places. My favorite dwelling as of late is this treehouse in Atlanta, Georgia.
The treehouse was built by Peter Bahouth, who, like most kids, always wanted to have a treehouse when he was growing up. In the late ’90s, Peter purchased a lot of land and by 2000, with the help of builder Nick Hobbs, he decided to build a few treehouses on that spot.
The three final houses are furnished with flea market finds, thus making a warm & cozy welcome to all who enter.
I always thought it would be the neatest thing to wake up in the trees.
Once upon a time, I was browsing Pinterest for home inspiration and I stumbled upon a gorgeous image of a green couch in a white room.
I opened up a new tab to write a blog post about it, but then my browser crashed and I lost that image and its source. Complete and utter sadness. I tried searching for the image again, but to no avail. Last week, while browsing Pinterest, I found that image again and was able to trace its source. Success!&tradition is a Danish design company that strives to tie tradition to innovation. Those dreamy white walls and floor-to-ceiling windows have got me swooning!
I know shibori isn’t a new trend by any means. But lately I’ve been seeing shibori techniques used on virtually any type of cloth: bedding, clothing, tea towels and other linens. I’m not one to get swept away in trends, but I have to say I’m liking this one. A lot.
The shibori technique of dyeing with indigo developed during the 8th century in Japan. It comes from the Japanese verb root “shiboru” which means, “to wring, squeeze, press.” I love that there is an infinite amount of ways to fold the cloth, resulting in an infinite amount of patterns… like how no one snowflake is ever the same.
