Best of the Blogosphere

Weekend hellos! I’ve been busy in a good way, spring cleaning and purging this week, getting rid of the things that aren’t beautiful or useful and hauling them off in bags and boxes to the Goodwill. I envision a home where every room has less stuff and surfaces that are clear; it’s a challenging task in a busy household, but little by little, I’ve found this week that purging of the clutter clears the mind. Today is ‘Best of the Blogosphere’ day again, and Amanda and I narrowed down our favorites, enjoy these inspiring spaces and projects!

There’s a beautiful new dining room over at Make Them Wonder, that dark moody wall is Ben Moore’s Narragansett Green and we’re also loving the live edge wood tabletop!



A plank wall and bracketed wood shelf are the simple DIY touches that transformed Jenna Sue’s foyer to create a stylish and functional entry.
