Abandoned Architecture

Wednesday, March 29, 2017

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....

What I Love Wednesday: HGTV Dream Home

Tuesday, March 28, 2017

You all must have seen the HGTV Dream Home by now? I don't think I have posted about it, so I wanted to. What I love is that the majority of the products you see in the home are available for purchase (HERE). Enjoy!

An Amazing Kitchen Makeover by Pink Peonies

Sunday, March 26, 2017

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?

30 Beautiful Transitional Bathrooms

Thursday, March 23, 2017

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!

What I Love Wednesday: Modern British Style

Wednesday, March 22, 2017

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!

A Stunning Parisian Apartment

Tuesday, March 21, 2017

This apartment outside of Paris was done by interior designers Pierre Emmanuel Martin and St├ęphane 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:

Formal Rooms

How is that for a chandelier!? Today's post is vaguely about dramatic rooms. I say vaguely because you guys know my posts are usually just random rooms of all styles that appeal to me. Happy weekend!

House Envy

Monday, March 13, 2017

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?

Rooms I Love

Sunday, March 12, 2017

I hope you all had a good weekend. I'm am swamped here - finishing a big project for a client, the bathroom renovation is underway (but some delays in deliveries so as usual taking longer than it should), and we are getting up to two feet of snow Tuesday (so the kids will likely be home a couple of days). So you might not hear a lot from me this week, but I will post when I can. Today some favorites from a Pinterest user I follow (here). Have a great week everyone.

50 Favorites for Friday -- Chevron: An Old Pattern Making a Comeback

Friday, March 10, 2017

I'm doing a herringbone shower in the new bathroom, so I thought it was funny noticing that practically everything on Pinterest seems to be herringbone these days. I am probably influenced by what I see there. I have always loved the pattern, and am excited to show you this collection.... 

Apartment Therapy Kitchens

Wednesday, March 8, 2017

This is a different kind of post for me. These kitchens are much more modern and urban than I usually post, but they still appeal to me. I hope you like them!

How to Lose a Whole Day

Sunday, March 5, 2017

Do you guys know the website Minted? I basically lost a day on it today. It's amazing - a collection of fabrics, art, linens, curtains, and other home decor designed by artists (or anyone really). And it's pretty affordable. For example, this fine art print starts at $23, and you choose whether you want it framed or not:
For most things, like curtains, linens, and lampshades, you pick your style and then fabric and color:

Pretty cool, right? There are also pillows, wedding supplies, fabrics by the yeard, and plenty of things for children.

But what I really, really love is the art.....
