How I long to have an exposed brick wall…

A loft with black steel windowsills….

I like this sofa for you can sit in two directions and carry conversations with people on opposite sides of the room. It’s a great piece for one who entertains….

How cute are these plane coloring place mats and faux passports?

I like the idea of edible favors or “plane” snacks housed in a suitcase…

Cute photobooth backdrop and something kids would love to help with simply using cotton balls and paper from Dollar Tree…

In honor of National Hammock Day…

image

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

image

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

image

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…

Giveaway!!! $100 Flemings Steakhouse gift card

image

It’s been a long time since I’ve had a giveaway for you all but today I have a good one. Any foodies out there? Fleming’s Steakhouse is offering one reader a $100 gift card. All you need to do is reply and let me know what you would order if you won. (Check their site to make sure there is a location near you before entering).

Fleming’s is also having a special offer for those who book private holiday events in advance. I know I know…we’re still enjoying summer and who wants to think about cold weather anything right? Well for any guest that books a future private party before August 31st, they’ll receive a $100 dining card for every $500 spent. In addition, each lunch guest will receive a $25 dining card to enjoy on a future visit. To qualify for their special reward, the holiday event must take place between November 1, 2014 and January 31, 2015. (This is NOT to be confused with the $100 gift card offer for my readers….that is separate….readers are not required to book a private party to win my giveaway contest).

A United States Winner will be selected for my giveaway next week Friday August 1st! Good luck!

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…

image

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….
