I finally found a nook type table and benches for a corner of our upstairs loft and have been contemplating just what to do with it to take it from it's oak dulldrum to something just this fabulous. I know it will involve a bit of paint and some cushions to cozy it up a bit.

Right or wrong , I often think of monochromatic spaces as a kind of  intellectual design as interest is often created in subtle ways that provoke thought rather than feeling.

I came across this great tutorial to make drawer pulls from leather belts at Re-Nest and I have to share it with you just in case you haven't seen it yet. They look fabulous and seem very simple to do.

In my opinion, the perfect workplace has a multitude of storage options, great lighting, a large open space to spread out the work to be done, and it inspires creativity.

As the summer garden is winding down, I find myself thinking about indoor plant options. As difficult as they can be to keep alive, it seems that there must be a perfect one that thrives on neglect out there somewhere and I am determined to find it.

Did you ever move into a new house as a child? I remember how exciting it was to look forward to a new bedroom. We moved through six places as I was growing up. In each place, my siblings and I would hash out who was going where and who we'd be sharing with. It was such fun. I can just imagine moving into this pretty little room...

Form & Function

I'd love these paper placemats to use on a park table that is never clean. It would make for such a sophisticated picnic!

I can't get this room out of my mind... the flooring is pure perfection, don't you think? If only I had some money laying around and nothing that had to be done with it,  my house would be amazing (at least to me).

Field Trip

These stairs will lead you to the fantastic dressmaker's shop of Karlee Slater. I am studying pattern making this semester (something I've been looking forward to for ages) so of course, I'd love to take a field trip here. Her shop, The Golden Age is in Melbourn, Australia, where she makes the most beautiful vintage style clothing

Thank you cards are a necessity, I always keep them on hand. I just love these from Humunuku!

This would be fantastic in a long hallway and would be most fun, it seems, if the frames were put up empty and items were added randomly as found.
