A Breath of Fresh Air

February 3, 2011

With all of the rain and cold weather that we have had lately it was a like a breath of fresh air when I saw this image of these beautiful hardware options from Anthropologie flash across my email.   They make me think of spring and some of the colorful super cute baby & kid rooms that I have seen lately in various magazine and on other blogs.  I mean come on….what else can brighten your day like a colorful super sweet kid’s room??

Domestic Adventure:

How cute is this nursery?!?  I love the small details that make huge impressions like the numeral hardware on the bright yellow dresser.

Young House Love:

Miss Clara’s sweet bedroom in the Petersik’s new house.


Check out the subliminal posters over the bed.  Love them!!  They are available through Sycamore Street Press on Etsy.

Bumper Crop:

What do you do when you have 3 boys in one room?  Hang them from the wall, literally!

Traditional Home:

How fun is this super girly built-in bed from Traditional Home’s April 2010 issue?  It is complete with hidden stairs for a growing lady.

Another super sweet built-in bed!  LOVE this combo of raspberry and teal.

Better Homes and Garden:

A fun and color boys room with the solar system soaring above!

Did you do anything super creative or just super cute in your kid’s room?  Please share!!


Mmmmmmm Mustard

I’m not sure what it is but I am obsessed with everything Mustard colored this fall.  From handbags to shoes to cardigans to bed linens to upholstery to accessories the color Mustard is warming up both personal and home fashion.  If only I had the budget to buy them ALL! 🙂  Mustard can be beautifully pair with a grays, browns, navy blues and black.  The possibilities are endless.  Here are a few of my Mustard colored favorites:

West Elm’s Gray Tailored Stripe Coverlet and Shams with Mustard on the reverse

Anthropologie’s Take Me Everywhere Wallet

Mod Cloth’s Saucy Saffron Coat

Global View’s Trapunto Magazine Holder-Mustard

Kravet’s Inviting Fabric
