Sectionals and Pillow Sizes

I've been using polyvore to upload photos of my spaces and then import items to create collages of spaces and ideas before actually implementing. I'm sure there are better options out there meant for design but for now I am enjoying this free and easy to use site. 

My good friend was over last night and she had laid the pillows out like this, testing out sizes. What do you think? I like it. It seems simple and cozy. We also considered maybe just doing three different sizes and shapes of pillows for the corner of the sectional and leaving it at that.

Sometimes I drive myself crazy because I want such simple and peaceful spaces but it's really not always easy to come up with that! In general, anything that is white, gray, black, black and white or patterned gray I am in love with. But then there's another part of me that loves color! So I get design confused at times... polyvore helps me with this! :)

What do you think? What size pillows do you prefer for your sofa? The big ones in this picture are 24" and the lumbar pillow is a 16x26". Searching for pillow covers, maybe black and white or textured whites. 

Here's the window seat across the room and the pillows on it. 

What do you think? Anyone have any pillow suggestions for keeping things simple and clean and also fun and neutral all at once? Can't wait to get this space finished!

Powder Bathroom

Hello! Today I'm excited to share our powder bathroom with you. Though I love the design and technically I executed it myself, I need to give credit where credit is due!

I fell in love with the powder bathroom / laundry remodel of Home with Baxter and wanted to take pieces of that bathroom and incorporate it into my sweet little powder bath.  

Here it is! I'm still learning how to edit photos appropriately, not sure I've figured it out quite yet. But hey, it's all a process.. blogging, photography skills, editing, learning, sharing, growing... :) So here we have it. :)

Do you like my dirty garbage? Lol.... Despite being dirty, it does make me smile. Such a cute farmy garbage IMO.

Bathroom Details and Sources! Orchid. Hand Towel. Art. Wire Basket. Trash Can. Frame. Beadboard is 5ft up. Carrera Marble countertop. Cabinet in Sherwin Williams Pure White paint. Chelsea Gray by Sherwin Williams wall color.

Happy decorating everyone. What do you think? Do you take rooms you like and try to incorporate ideas and inspirations into your own spaces? I love doing this. Another thank you to Home with Baxter for such a great design in their own place and for sharing it so people like me can be inspired. Copying is the greatest form of flattery, right. I am loving this powder bath and especially the ART!! LOVE the art by Lisa Golightly. It reminds me of summers at my Nana and Papa's lake cabin growing up.

Stella & Dot

Hello Lovelies! 

My good friend from childhood has offered me my very first free blog gift from Stella & Dot, for a trade of writing up a blog post! How happy does this make me. Not only because I love free gifts. :) but because the product is beautiful and also because I love supporting people in their businesses and I hope to continue supporting my friend Kim in the future as well in this growing business she has! Plus.. she is a very good stylist!

With that said, check out this adorable engravable I.D. tag from Stella & Dot. The engravables are NEW and just coming out and are available special order by contacting Kim directly.

It was love at first sight.

07, 09, and 12 are the birth years of my kids. To me, it is a small reminder of God's faithfulness that I can wear around my neck.

What I especially loved about it upon opening it was how it is small and delicate. From far away, it just adds a little glimmer and sparkle to an otherwise normal everyday outfit. It comes in silver or gold.

A bit of sparkle.

A bit of sparkle.

And this one. :) I'm already loving this necklace. How from afar it's a simple silver necklace and then up close the sentimental value.

Makes a great gift for yourself or loved one... check out the adorable box it comes in.

Yes, YOU are fabulous.

Yes, YOU are fabulous.

Thank you so much Kim! You can find her site and the tag HERE

Such great pieces at Stella & Dot! These are a few of my other favorites.

Thank you so much Kim! The tag is beautiful to me, as are you. :) Thankful for your encouragement in this tiny little corner of the web that no one really knows about, but that I love creating no matter.

Happy 4th of July and happy Stella & Dot shopping everyone!

Project Nursery

These are casual photos from a minute ago, we are working on the nursery nook pictured on left with the white chair and Sugarboo dog art. Just trying to add a few more details to the area to finish it off, a Caitlin Wilson textiles zig zag greige pillow is on its way. :) Can't wait for it to come! And I'm on the search for a table lamp or floor lamp for that little area. 

More to come!

The basket is from Target. Mobiles are blabla. Nightlight RH Baby & Child.
