Whale Watching

I’ve been noticing some pretty cool whale pieces lately.

Maybe whales are the new owls.

DAYBEDS!

I love daybeds.  Not only do they look cool, but they are functional too.  Here are a few of my faves.

I could move right into this room, snuggle up under that pink throw, and have a wonderful afternoon nap.

LOVE the pattern on this one.

So simple, yet so pretty.

……………………

If I sat down on this one, you’d have a really hard time getting me to leave.

It looks beyond comfortable.

……………………

Daybeds are great for kids too – this little girl’s room is so sweet and serene.

My daughter would totally adore this one!

This nursery almost makes me want another one.

I’d much rather own that daybed. (wink)

……………………

I think the idea of putting a daybed outside is genius.

It looks so inviting – the perfect place to sip a cold lemonade on a hot day.

Can’t find the perfect daybed for your needs?  Build one!

Masculine Pink?

Luckily for my husband, I am not a big fan of pink.  Our three year old daughter, on the other hand, can’t seem to live without it.  I was curious if it was possible to pull off pink decor that didn’t scream “I’m a Girl!!!!” and this is what I found …

While both my husband and I could live with these options, I think for now we will stick to letting Ava hog all the pink in our lives!

Love is in the Air

I am in love with air plants.  They are virtually un-killable, which is perfect for someone [like me] who always forgets to water the plants.  They have a lot going for them – durability, a unique look, and so versatile.  The perfect plant.  How do you display yours??

We used glass globes from West Elm filled with plants from Air Plant Supply Co to fill a blank wall.

Star Wars Decor

My husband has a thing for Star Wars [gee, what guy doesn’t?].  He has a few tees and some little figurines [that we keep in his upstairs office – aka out of sight] and he and Ava have Star Wars battles with the lightsabers he bought her.  A little bit of novelty can be fun.

Like this print from Restyle Prints that I bought & framed and allowed into our living room.

I actually kind of like this Imperial Forces Wallpaper from Super7.

And this nursery featured on Apartment Therapy?  Almost makes me want to make another baby.

I just came across these prints by Amanda Catherine Designs and had to share.

Perfect for Valentine’s Day … or any day.  (Love you, MS)

Shop Crushes!

You would think that after the holidays I would be all shopped out … think again!  Now I have to spend Christmas cash and use up gift cards!  It would be easy to spend it all and more at my latest shop crushes – Alder & Co and Leif.  Alder & Co is in Portland [another love of mine] and Leif is based in my old hometown of Brooklyn.  Both shops are full of simple and beautiful things … how can I resist?

Vintage + Technology @ Anthropologie

I am totally in love with these items from Anthropologie’s latest catalog.  If I could be sure the technology wouldn’t change in a few years and deem these pieces nothing but eye-catching, I would have had an early Christmas for myself.  Still, they are pretty cool.

Living Room Makeover

I get to re-do our living room!!!  You have no idea how happy it will make me to not have to look at our current sofa anymore!  I’ve been working on my style page … what do you think?

The only thing it’s missing is a new sofa … still trying to pick one out, but it’s getting there.  I need to find some new curtains too.  I am keeping some of our existing lamps and accessories and will be sure to share the finished look with you when we get it all put together.  As for our old stuff … it’s going upstairs in “the room we never use” in hopes of turning it into a second family room that we WILL use.  I need to put together a style page for that too … stay tuned!  XO
