In honor of National Hammock Day…

I figured we can all daydream a bit about soaking some rays, catching some zzz’s or reads in hammocks whether indoors or out….

I like the hammocks with the side fringe. It’s very bohemian…

This just looks so relaxing and tranquil….

A small pond and a fountain will add to a zen outdoor oasis….

With rustic bones and hardened materials, the plush rug and hammock softens the space…

Just a blush, black & gray collage…

image

I made a collage using a blush, gray, black & white color scheme and mixed different styles for seating. Adding a throw of sorts to any caged seating makes it more comfortable and withstanding the use of sofa or dining sets adds interest. Try swapping out the head chairs of a formal dining area or adding a bench to one side of the table. Mixing tables or lamps can also keep a space eclectic. The goal in design is to make a space feel collected over time and not bought in one store.

Tiny Tot Thursday: striped walls and ceilings

image

I really like the school desks painted in a hip and modern way. Fun pattern and colors will keep children engaged in homework and learning…

A cute tween room with a grown up feel. Using adult headboards and lighting will make it easier to transition as she grows older. It’ll also prove cheaper for the parent as they won’t have to buy new furniture every few years….

I like the way the circus canopy striped ceiling….

Monday Inspiration 7.7.14

image

I like this picture for this quote because every sunset means there’s a new beginning and a new day that follows where we can try all over again.  I hope you all had a wonderful long weekend and holiday. Mine was ok but I’ve been battling some sort of stomach virus or food poisoning since July 4th off and on. I even had to call out work today and I rarely ever do that. Nothing worse than spending a 85 degree day cooped up in the house sick. My meds are slowly working so hopefully I’ll be able to resume blogging soon.
