When I redesigned my website, I looked back at a few old posts and realized I haven’t blogged about any of my latest etsy finds. So, here we go!
Have you guys seen these gold foil prints from Charm and Gumption? They are darling and only $10 each! Grab an ikea frame, buy a print, and you are on your way to a super cute art piece.
I mean, how can you choose? I’m loving the HUSTLE print, but truth be told, I’d buy all 4 if I had more walls in my home.
Happy weekend, friends:)!
It seems like our house renovation is either at a stand-still, or we have too many projects to handle. Isn’t that how life works though? I mentioned last week that we’re tackling the fireplace, and we’re also currently renovating our guest/second bathroom.
Here’s the quick designed board I drew up…and we’re running with it!
The original board I created for this room is below, and the plan has changed quite a bit. Why? Because after living here for 6 months, I’ve realized this bathroom is very dark, and it needs lots of light and bright colors. In other words, white needs to be the main shade in this window-less bathroom.
I also played around with wallpaper options, but it ended up being too spendy to move forward with. One day, I WILL have a room full of wallpaper, it’s just not going to be in this particular space:(.
Tomorrow, I’ll post plenty of “before” bathroom photos. This might be the most righteous room in the house, as it currently has pink countertops, 19th century beauty salon cartoon wallpaper (no joke), and linoleum floors. Once again, everything in this room is original to the home. I think we’re seeing a pattern here…this house is as original as it gets.
We have a few projects in the works right now, and one of them is the other side of our fireplace (see the kitchen side here). This fireplace is in the living room and it needs a major overhaul. Like so major that when I start thinking about it I become overwhelmed. A fireplace has the potential to be the focal point of a room, but this one….not so much. I just can’t get over the off-centered fireplace. Really?! What were they thinking in 1961?
I do think we’ve come up with a few solutions though. We’ll paint the brick white, install a new bulky mantle, and place vertical planks above the new mantle. We’ll also add sconces since we already have an electrical outlet above the fireplace (again, why?!). This is a 5 second mock-up, and we haven’t settled on what sconces we’ll use yet, but here’s a general idea of what we are thinking…
Per usual, I will keep you guys posted along the way.
You know when you run across a series of images and think…that’s exactly my aesthetic. That’s my perfect home.
I came across my dream house in this month’s issue of Gray magazine. Paul + Katie Hackworth are the husband and wife team behind this stunning home. They own H2 Design + Build and create truly meaningful spaces that really resonate with me. Like big-time. Here’s a look into their modern farmhouse in Medina, Washington.
I die. For so many reasons. It’s perfectly perfect. I can’t even list out all of my favorite things because I love it all.
P.S. Katie also has a blog. Just like her home, it’s lovely. Find it here.
