Somehow I always manage to find time to blog on Tuesday. Every other day is another story, at least until tax season is over and I am not working my office job as often and more wedding plans become finalized… :/
This past weekend I spent in Orland Park, IL with my cousin shopping the HomeGood’s stores. We found some jewel tone ikat pillows for her sofa that couldn’t have worked better had we gone custom, and also pillow shams to complete her bedding. For my own home, I scored a set of Laura Ashley drapery panels for just $7.00! Take a peak at these awesome deals…
Jewel tone Ikat pillows with down forms for just $24.99 each, really freshened up her living space and broke up all of the neutrals.
Pair of Laura Ashley drape panels~$7.00!! Soft and feminine…so sweet. Now I must decide where to hang these~guest bedroom or office… decisions…decisions! Fun decisions at that.
Already that time again!
I’ll start off by by introducing my absolute favorite line of faux leathers. The product line is called Roos, and they have some really fun faux leathers in various textures. Pretty affordable too! I received my sample binder in the mail today and what a perfect day to share!
I used the faux baby ostrich in color latte to recover the chairs at the office I work at. (Picture to come) Great stuff! Durable and wipes clean. Perfect for commercial application…and KIDS!
I think this shimmer would look pretty hot on some barstools !
Fabric is what excites me the most when it comes to Interior Design and my passion for fabric is a major reason why I pursued a career in interior design in the first place. On “Textile Tuesday” I will feature several fabulous fabrics from my fabric library that I am currently gushing over…
Schumacher’s Betwixt fabric will never get old in my eyes! The texture is what makes this fabric not only beautiful but versatile, as it looks great alone or acting as a coordinate alongside several prints.
A classic , bold stripe by Robert Allen. Pillow fabric is Jellybean by Kravet.
And those bird prints…Pottery Barn
I can’t get that stripe out of my head after seeing the headboard image and am officially confused as to which to use for my bedroom.
Robert Allen Gate-Brindle vs. Robert Allen Oversize Stripe-Charcoal. Hmm….just when I thought I had it figured out!
OH who do I kid, the entire Robert Allen Dwell Studio collection is just Fab!
If interested in any of these fabrics and would like more info, or would like to see a sample first, shoot me an email at: email@example.com.
I’ve been daydreaming about a new kitchen lately and that paired with a little Pinterest obsession, my desire to renovate our kitchen is stronger than ever! Although I know this project is very much in the future I thought I better put a mood board together … to gather all of my ideas … so they are in one place … in addition to my Pinterest board, of course. HEY, a girl can dream right!
So, what do ya think? I’m going for a fresh and functional look that also appears clean and sleek.
The countertops are a Silestone Quartz. A very hard, resilient, and scratch, stain, heat and bacterial resistant material, making them an excellent choice for kitchen countertops. I’ve always been intrigued by the elegant look of Quartz.
With all of the options out there today, do any of you prefer Quartz over Granite over Corian, etc? Would love to hear your thoughts!
“Once was lost, now is found.” This motto is used to describe Pennsylvania furniture business, Chairloom, specializing in repurposing furniture, or up-cycling, as they refer to it. They have some pretty unbelievable pieces, that one would never even know from appearance what kind of shape it was in before being stripped, sanded and reupholstered. I am a huge fan of refurbished furniture myself, so this business had me so intrigued, I just had to share a few of their before and afters of some pretty amazing transformations!
Check them out!!
It’s all in the bones of a piece. If it has good bones, there is incredible potential. a little elbow grease and you will have them looking like high-end one of a kind pieces in no time! I am constantly scouring Craig’s List for inexpensive, antique chairs that I can bring to new life. So far, have found a couple for only 20 bucks, now let’s only hope I can showcase the final reveal sometime in the near future!
These photos will hopefully inspire you to see the potential and think again before throwing an old piece in a garage sale or spending big bucks on something new!
Anxiously awaiting my arrival of Schumacher’s Betwixt fabric in color Spark! This glorious fabric in it’s rusty red hue and fun texture is perfectly suitable for this barrel back chair I scored off Craig’s List for just $20! I plan to use what is left over to complete my sectional pillow arrangement of Duralee prints which I hope to share with you very soon. (seen below…currently draped over chair, waiting to sewn…) Seems Fitting!

Today’s inspiration: Painted stripes.
I have been dying to try this trendy stripe in our bedroom. It may be obvious already that I am a pretty neutral gal so the soft gray and white is calling my name. Bold but neutral.
Almost an exact replica of what I had in mind but a tad narrower on the stripe. http://www.vintage revivals.blogspot.com
Gorgeous little nursery with soft gray and white striped walls.(Pinterest image without a direct link to original source.)
Silvery gray and white stripes with lovely scattered frames. A tad chunkier of a stripe wouldn't hurt either (Pinterest image without a direct link to original source.)
