Weekend Reading

July 26th, 2013

Hello hello, we’re still on the road enjoying our family vacay this week but I wanted to share a few fun links for your weekend enjoyment. I’m going to need smelling salts, I’m feeling faint because how absolutely perfect is this breezy guest house by Tillman Long Interiors?

And a few other favorites from the week…

White kitchen appliances are white hot this year.

Martha’s prop library.

Fascinating: vibrant tales of obsolete paint pigments (also Part One here)

A cleverly designed apartment that is 380 square feet.

53 great backyard DIY projects.

An artist who designs with Microsoft Paint!

Jazz hands and lyric blunders (great comments)

Every sofa needs a beast pillow, don’t you think?

My latest article over at My Colortopia: simple summer decor.


See y’all back here on Monday!


Summer Break

July 22nd, 2013

Hello friends, hope you all had a fab weekend! I finished up a DIY project in the dining room space that I’ll share with you all next week. Meanwhile, this is a week of family vacation for us. We’re headed down the California coast on a road trip, stopping to hang out in some favorite towns along the way and taking full advantage of the views!

I promised myself I’d slow down this summer and make time off a priority so that’s what this week is about. I don’t have any guest posts scheduled for these few days away, but I’ll be back on Friday with a roundup of favorite links from the week. Hope you’re all embracing and enjoying these last few weeks of summer, be back soon!
