Weekend Reading

Thursday, March 7th, 2013

Hey everyone, happy weekend! It was a bit slower on the blog this week but in the time away from the computer I was able to get a lot done behind the scenes – my youngest daughter’s room is nearing completion and the design studio is in progress, I’ll be sharing pictures from both spaces next week. 

Meanwhile, here’s the latest over at the BH&G blog:

kitchen trends worth embracing

practical pantry solutions

fabulous folding screens

sprucing with patterned pillows

 

And a few other links that caught my eye:

25 ways to decorate a console table

A paneled wall room makeover (the awesome power of white paint)

In her own words, how Martha made homemaking an art form

A realistic house tour of people who live with toddlers

10 Commandments of used furniture

Absolutely beautiful imagery from the Smithsonian photo contest

Great advice from a father to his children

 

I also wrote up an article for the My Colortopia blog on all the ways I decorate with apothecary jars.  The ‘Best of the Blogosphere’ returns on Sunday, I’ll be back with a roundup of inspiring DIY projects spied around the web.

Have a great weekend!
