As much as the next person, I find abandoned buildings to be sad in that they represent the loss of a dream. But I am also fascinated with them, I think because of the possibility that someone could rebuild and breathe new life into them. So I try to see it that way, and then really let my imagination take over. If these make you sad, I'm sorry, and I'll be back tomorrow with 50 Favorites....

Hi everyone. I hope you all had a great weekend. I still haven't been able to write very much on these posts because I am just so swamped with work. Which of course is a good thing, but I do miss over sharing with my readers ;) Thank you everyone who has asked about my bathroom progress. We had an unfortunate delay because the bathroom supplier said that they had the correct shower pan, but ended up supplying the wrong one, which was too small, and they didn't in fact have the correct one in stock. So we had to wait about two weeks for it to come in special order. It was just installed yesterday, so now the contractor can start everything else. Basically we have had a demolished bathroom for a couple of weeks with no progress. But that's what happens sometimes and it's certainly not the contractor's fault. Anyway I should have a lot more to show you at the end of the week and I can't wait.
I stumbled upon this kitchen makeover on Pinterest a couple of weeks ago and was thrilled. You know how sometimes you click through and it's not really as much your style as you thought? Not this time. Rachael Parcell at Pink Peonies shows up what I think is one of the best kitchen reveals in a long, long time. What do you think?

I relied heavily on this board (here) when I was making decisions for my master bath (still nothing to show you because of shipping delays and the wrong shower inset being delivered). Clearly I have a style, as these all fall within the same design aesthetic. I hope you enjoy them too!

These rooms were collected by First Dibs (here), and I think they are so interesting. For more, click over to read about each. The one above is my favorite (you know how I am about white walls and millwork, can't get enough). Enjoy!

This apartment outside of Paris was done by interior designers Pierre Emmanuel Martin and Stéphane Garotin (original source here). Although the white isn't really livable for me (the kids and dog would destroy it in 5 minutes flat), it is fun to imagine, and I really love the look:

This is not my normal style, but I would nevertheless move right in and embrace everything. It's the Nashville home of musician/model Karen Elson (here), and it is top notch, from antique lighting to the La Cornue range. Do you love it as much as I do?
