Friday Crush

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....

Friday Crush

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!

Red and white and blue and fireworks. Do yourself a solid this holiday weekend and check out this home owned by Christopher Spitzmiller if you aren't familiar with's bananas. Those painted cobalt floors are everything. One room pairs these floors with purple. It's bold and classic and sensational...three things I aspire to be. 

Hope your 4th of July weekend is wonderful...I'm excited for some rest and fun with my family. See you next week!
