bri1 bri2 bri3 bri4 bri5 bri6

 

I’m just drooling today over Bri Emery’s new living room designed by Emily Henderson.  Bri is the beautiful and spunky genius behind the blog Design Love Fest.  Her passion for entertaining and all things design have been perfectly portrayed through Emily Hendersons mad mad skills!  I love the way she uses a white backsplash and then just throws color all around the room with lamps, accessories, art and more.  Head over to DLF to see more photos and get the inside scoop on how this look was achieved.

“HOW FUN”!  That was the first thing that popped into my mind when I stumbled across these sit-upons by lil blue boo.  Have you every gone somewhere where you have to sit on the ground and it’s been raining and a blanket is just not going to cut it?  Or you need a quick place to “park it” while you are outside?  These are just perfect for that!  You can also use them as “time-out seats” if you have children who aren’t cooperating while you are outside, or even inside, playing.  They are made from tablecloths and scrap ribbons so they are waterproof and you can find them in such fun and bright colors!  Too find out how you make them head over to lil blue boo to see the tutorial!

kitchen

I love this kitchen! It is bright, light and I think the all tile wall is fabulous! (via martha stewart)

dining

I’m drooling over the rug under this dining room table. It is just the pop of color that this room needs….also adore the chandelier! (via the glitter guide)

dapper

awwww look at this dapper little fella <3 (via pinterest)

bedroom

It’s inspiring to see how great looking a small (awkwardly shaped) room can be accomplished! This room seems so cozy and inviting. (via pinterest)

bath

I’m OBSESSED with that mirror! We actually have had those at Celadon, where I work. This bathroom is neat and tidy and just up my alley! (via hand crafted in virginia)

hammer & hand – singular, sustainable, timeless

I found a great little store on etsy today called “hammer & hand“.  Chris and Amy find pieces from places such as India, Bali and Thailand and restore them to a beautiful rustic finish.  Their pieces will add an eclectic feel and warmth to any house…whether it is a loft in the city or a farm house out in the country.  Find more worldly goods at their etsy shop and stop by their blog to see what they have been up to!

feminine inspiration

How about a little (feminine) inspiration, eh?  Sometimes you can have some gloomy days and you need something to remind you of how wonderful you are and how much you mean to those who matter.  Stay strong and never lose your dignity and live in the present.  The past is behind you and you cannot change it and the future is unknown so make these moments, minutes and hours count….soak them in.  Much love to you all….you are beautiful!

favorite five friday – pinterest pins

Okay, so a lot of my favorite pins this week have something in common…they are all outdoors!!!  Maybe it is because spring is so close and I love warmer weather that I am dreaming of spending my time outdoors swimming, camping underneath large beautiful trees, or cooking out with friends.  What is your favorite kind of outdoor space?

If you are new to this weekly post then you can catch the rest here.

camp

I’d like to go camping at a place like this this summer. (via bippity boppity boo)

outdoor2

Shall we take a dip before we go inside? :) (via japanese trash)

outside

I wish so badly for an outdoor space to hang out with friends and chit chat under the setting sky…(via pinterest)

pool

Oh this pool is gorgeous….it’s almost like you are taking a dip in the middle of the forest in a hidden pond. (via greige design)

sail

Living in a harbor city I see tons of sail boats out on the water all of the time and it makes me so jealous! I’d love to sail to a far off land…(via ack city)
