Moody Monday: Sea + Citrus Sitting Room

June 4th, 2012

Good morning all and welcome to another week!  I still can’t believe it’s June already, my word when did that happen? 

I’ve been thinking…  I can’t get enough of great full room designs and because I’ve finally figured out a lot of the tools in Photoshop Elements (yahoo!) I’ve been doing a lot of playing around in that program and I just decided from time to time I’m going to create rooms that don’t exist but really should exist if it were up to me and feature them here.

Welcome to the first (of I have no idea how many) Moody Monday made up rooms where I draft a mood board for an imaginary space just because I feel like it.  This week’s version is a sunny sitting room filled with layers of blue and accents in citrus shades with a few of my favorite warm tone metallic accents thrown in the mix too.  And since I’m obsessed with natural wood bead chandeliers at this moment, I had to add a gorgeous one suspended above as a finishing touch.

In other news, we made some real progress on the window seat this weekend, will show you this week!  Today I’m groovin’ to this fun song by Spencer Day while I paint the new frame and install the cabinet doors – if you’re a Bublé/Connick Jr. fan like me you’ll dig it too.

Have a great day…

Tropical Summer Sangria

June 1st, 2012

Happy happy weekend everyone!  We had some friends over last night and I whipped up a batch of tropical summertime sangria.  I’ve been craving pineapple lately so I had to include it in the medley with some diced fresh nectarines and mango too!  It’s easy to make and guaranteed to please, and I say it totally counts for a daily serving of fruit.
