Feathery Fern Wallpaper

Today's find is a feathery fern wallpaper awash in the most beautiful shades of rose, blush, and lilac:

Perfect for a powder room, especially when paired with a bold gold mirror:

Add dynamite sconces and a marble vanity top, and you are in business. #humpdayhelp

Friday Crush

I'm fairly wishy-washy when it comes to defining my own decorating style - I like many things. But today, it is THIS. Holy moly, THIS. The art, mirrors, wallpaper, colors, side's all a dream. And I want to live in it. 

Hope you have a fabulous weekend planned...see you next week!

Catalog Pick: Terrace Bunk Bed

I saw this Terrace Bunk Bed in the Land of Nod catalog:

And immediately thought of this iconic children's space:

The Land of Nod bed is your one-way ticket to creating a similar look and I LOVE it. Although I get the allure of a bunk bed for space and general child merriment, can't say I often think it's chic. But I'm into this.

The bunk bed would also look bananas painted the same color of the wall to create a built-in look.

Pure sunshine from designer Nick Olsen in a child's room. Yellow can be tricky, folks. I have had trouble using it in the past and find that it works well as a bold punctuation, like this bed. Although put together this space is fun and juvenile, the elements are perfectly classic. A+

It's HOT. And I am attempting a theme park run with Ana Claire tomorrow. Pray for me. Hope your weekend is wonderful...see you next week!

The Art of Janet Hill

After almost seven (!) years of blogging, I tend to forget if I've written about something in the past. This is one of those occasions...I have LONG admired the work of artist Janet Hill (and maybe I've already told you this fact).

 Her work is bursting with detail, beautiful colors, and loads of whimsy. It's perfect.

She is also an exquisite interior designer, as her imagined interiors are some of the best I have encountered. I'm especially fond of her wallpaper creations.

Visit her website or her Etsy shop to see LOADS of art prints at very affordable prices. She often paints in a series so several can be put together for a lovely set.

I have never gotten over this vignette from the recent One Room Challenge from Mimosa Lane.  Yesterday's post - with it's vibrant face art and patterns - reminded me of it and it perfectly encompasses my Friday Summer Feels. The standout art is by Hayley Mitchell and the good news is you can snag very affordable prints of similar works from her Etsy shop.

Who's ready for the Olympics? Ana Claire and I have been gearing up watching 2012 coverage of gymnastics on You Tube...always followed by a solid 10 minutes of AC attempting flips and jumps in our living room. You'll catch us between Olympics-watching and pool-swimming this weekend. Hope yours is great - see you next week!

Idea House Inspiration

Have your eyes feasted on photography from this year's Southern Living Idea House in Alabama? It had an all-star decorating cast - Mark D. Sikes, Margaret Kirkland, Ashley Gilbreath, Lauren Leiss, Amy Berry - so no wonder the whole house is ridiculously good.

Seriously, have you seen Margaret Kirkland's dining room?

That is Sally King Benedict's art...and boy did Margaret take a slew of color and pattern and pull it together beautifully.

And the jaw-dropping doesn't stop there:

Bucket loads of inspiration. This is one idea house I would definitely want to see in person! Do you have a favorite space from this particular house?

Catalog Pick: Chippendale Headboard

Chinoiserie lovers, put this one on your radar - the new Dayna Headboard from Ballard Designs:

It's a Chippendale Chinoiserie dream. And it's on sale with Queen and Twin under $400 (no King, though).

I wish it came in more colors, but I have to say that doubling up on these would be phenomenal in a double bedroom. And the price point is palatable.

Happy hump day!

This kitchen has me on high alert. I love everything about it. IT HAS SCALLOPED MOLDING. And the use of Schumacher's Citrus Garden on those roman shades is fantastic...especially since the shade's binding is the perfect hue of poppy red to match those ridiculous lanterns. I was thinking extending the black from the island to the lower cabinets might also look fetching here. This is all quite, quite good. Definitely filing this one away for future kitchen inspiration.

Hoping the rain holds off so there can be some pool time in our weekend future. Are you bummed summer is entering its final month? Or kind of pumped like me? I just want my boots back. Have a great weekend...see you next week!

Catalog Pick: PB Kids Paige Pendant

I think most of us are in the know that PB Kids often has some sweet lighting appropriate for non-kid installations, yes? My recent favorite is this Paige Pendant. That milk glass + metal look is so chic and could suit several styles. I would personally love a pair of these hanging over a kitchen island.

In other PB Kids lighting news...this Geo Multilight Pendant:

The perfect statement light fixture for your foyer.

Peaceful Pastels

I went to the beach last week for our annual family vacation. It was lovely, to say the least. Yes, I want to go back, but I also love returning from the beach and feeling like fall is on its way. I'm ready for a new season.

Now about this photo, I feel pretty zen when I look at it. Not my style, but it's SO easy on the eyes. I think if I was a single gal living creatively out in Cali, this could be my living room. The art is on point and the silhouette and blue hue of that chair are stellar. So calming....

Artist Kerry Steele has the most adorable set of mini sailboat abstracts in her Etsy shop right now. I always LOVE her color use and I am digging this loose watercolor style. Get all three and frame them up in thin gold frames...A+.

Happy Friday! FYI, I'll be away from the blog next week but back the week after. Talk soon!

Etsy Shop: Wheaton Whaley Designs

My Etsy wanderings recently landed me at this adorable South Carolina-based shop, Wheaton Whaley. Chock full of darling pillows and monogrammed gifts. 

That first pillow is the loveliest shade of cornflower blue - not easy to find. And let me tell you that with wedding season and summer entertaining underway, nothing makes a better gift than monogrammed cocktail napkins. Always well-received.

Gingham Settee

Mid-week musing - find yourself an old settee on Craigslist and recover it in gingham (or buffalo check) so it looks a little something like this:

Or just buy the one above on One Kings Lane...

Bonus points if you have a stunning wallpapered wall to set it against and opt for contrast welting:

Let's get through the rest of the week, shall we?

I need more monograms in my life. Love this collection from Kim Bachmann's wonderful home featured on One Kings Lane. Check it out here - definitely worth your time this Friday. 

Well, that was a busy week. How was yours? Do you feel like summer is just FLYING by like I do? Granted, I'm not one to hold on to this season so this is not necessarily a bad thing...mostly just the sensation that time is slipping by, which leaves one questioning all sorts of things. Hope your weekend is carefree, unworried about anything but family and friends. See you next week!
