The Prettiest Baker’s Rack

Wednesday, September 3rd, 2014

I was going to title this post How We Plan to Survive Living Without a Kitchen For Three Months but instead I shortened it to what it really is, the prettiest baker’s rack ever. We are starting on the kitchen remodel in the Nevada house in a few weeks (more details on that soon) which includes a total floor to ceiling demo so I came up with a solution for where to store our plates, bowls, and glassware so when we’re staying there we can eat and drink even while we are kitchenless until December.

I bought this Ceylon Baker’s Rack from Ballard Designs when it popped up on sale over the summer for two reasons 1) It was love at first sight: whitewash finish and fretwork doors! 2) It’s a versatile piece that will work anywhere, think bar in a living room, stylish display in a home office, storage in a breakfast nook, etc. 

We will have a functioning refrigerator for the fall but no working appliances so we will be eating a lot of cereal and sushi and takeout while in town and paying visits down the street to my Mom and Dad’s house for hot meals. Right now the baker’s rack sits in the breakfast nook and I had some fun styling it in the space.

Our New Teal Blue Sectional

Monday, August 25th, 2014

Long time readers know my passion for the color blue, the hue finds its way into so many spaces and projects I touch. I’ve been dreaming of a teal blue sofa for a long time and teal/peacock blue continue to be my all time faves.

When designer Kyle Schuneman (who I interviewed years ago) made the announcement over the summer he had partnered with Apt2B to create a sofa collection, my little heart leapt for joy when I spied one in his collection that had everything I loved in a sectional sofa: clean lines, a bit of tufting, midcentury styling, and that color I adore.

I crushed hard on the Logan Sectional in Chicago Blue and requested a fabric sample be sent to my door pronto. Upon its arrival, our fate was sealed, the sectional needed to be mine! So I made a bold choice and ordered it from Apt2B for the Nevada house and I’m so so in love with it!

The fabric is a tweed like poly blend fabric with interwoven threads of deep turquoise, teal blue, and black and the sofa is made in the USA.

The mustard yellow ikat and zebra pillows are from a local RC Willey; the teal geometric pillows and blue inlay tray are from HomeGoods; the throw blanket and wood lantern are from World Market; the Palm Springs Kayla rug is from Joss & Main; and the coffee table I found for $20 at a thrift store. Chrome base + solid surface top = total score!

We have no television or media stand or curtains or art, but we’re hoping to fill that in time as the renovation continues. For now I’m just enjoying the beauty of our new teal tufted sectional – I want to make out with it but that would be gross and weird so I’ll settle for fondling and caressing its tailored curves…
