Friday Crush

Precious twin girl bedroomness by Richmond-based designer Lizzie Cox of Suellen Gregory Interior Design. The color scheme is perfect and I LOVE the painted-bed-base-upholstered-headboard combo. Sweet, simple, sophisticated.

Fall is around the corner and I'm pretty pumped. How are you feeling about it? I love the fresh start that comes with September. Until then, we'll be at the pool. Have a great weekend - see you next week!

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!
