I saw these plates at Target a few weeks ago and thought, “How nice! Cute and affordable plates decked out in chevron!” Dan got me for our three year anniversary last week, and I realized the other reason I adore them: the colors. Ever since that realization, I can’t stop thinking about using red, black, and turquoise together someday in my future apartment or home. I would love to use paint colors like these…
…to put my own style on rooms like these.
This room by Roberts Erickson Design is gorgeous! It’s a bit more luxe than I can see actually being in my house, but boy does it provide some inspiration.
What do you think about this color combo? Which bedroom would you prefer to have?
Lately I have been daydreaming a lot about the home I will have someday soon with Daniel. I want our bedroom to be a safe haven: cozy, comfy, and relaxed, yet romantic, cute, and stylish. I love the idea of lettered throw pillows because they add an “extra something” to the room’s style while also being functional. Check out the ones pictured below:
Adorable “Mr. & Mrs.” pillows are perfect for newlyweds.
They can always be switched out first initials of the husband and wife once the honeymoon phase is over ; )
Or, if one wanted to emphasize atmosphere and attitude over coupledom, Scrabble letter-style pillows to spell out a well-chosen word.
Do you like the idea of lettered throw pillows? What sort of ones would you use in your home?
I really like the idea of words as art. The word art above are all babies’ names, designed to be hung in a nursery. While I am not a mother and not searching for nursery decor ideas, I do like the examples above as inspiration for word decor in general. Which style do you like best? What word would you display as art?
After four years of doing laundry in community laundry rooms, and even though I probably will be living in an apartment for a few years still, I am dreaming of having my own laundry room someday. I like the ones featured above, particularly how they are decorated in a beautiful and/or functional way. I really like the last one – I would hang out there a ton! Which room do you like best? How would you decorate a laundry room?
I love window seats so much. Someday the house I own will have one, just like my family’s house does now. My favorite of these three is the second one. How do you feel about window seats? Which of these three is your favorite?
As I mentioned on my spring break to-do list, I plan on cooking and baking a bit during spring break. I wish I could have one of these kitchens someday…to cook in, bake in, read and drink tea in, to generally love. What would your dream kitchen be like?
I have been drawn to maps used as decor lately. I love traveling and geography in general, and I think maps are both fun and stimulating when used in the home. A whole wall covered in map wallpaper is a bit much for me, but I like some touches here and there. What do you think?
