Pet friendly bath stations and mudrooms…

image

At the parade of homes Monday, several houses had cute stations for pets. Most were combined with mudrooms or laundry areas. I think these ideas are great uses of space especially for large dogs. You can easily wash them without dealing with buckets..

In one of the rec rooms, they had a little “dog house” in the wall for Fido to sleep…

image

So I figured I would provide you with other styles for pet owners…

If you don’t have a room but have an odd space, you can always do this…

image

It’s always about dogs though. Where is the love for our feline friends?

How cute.

Lately Paris has been on my mind Pt 2

image

You may have read what I would do in Paris part 1 but here is what I would do part 2. When I am in Paris, I would want to stay someplace opulent. I really like to stay in nicer hotels even if I am out and about most of the day. Part of the fun in traveling is staying in a place decorated entirely different than anything I see on a regular basis….

image
A hotel with a pretty entrance flocked by awnings, boxwoods and flowers boxes….

image
I would hope the hotel had a restaurant that I could go to each morning for a quick breakfast bite to eat and I would want the hotel to have some sort of a courtyard area with water fountains and lush landscaping…

image
Then again the whole point is sometimes slowing down the normal pace of life when traveling and truly savoring the details, moments, conversations, and bites….and even drinks 🍷. So maybe I wouldn’t have any quick bites in Paris. Maybe I would have a seat and relax a bit and cherish the time I have there and be fully present.

image
I would still take selfies and photoshoots and capture all of the surrounding beauty. I see nothing wrong with snapping pictures of things as sometimes I find something new in old images….

image

image
I would probably try to dine outside most of the time…

image

Did you know Paris has beaches? Not really but in the summer they do dump tons of sand along the river so Parisians and tourist can enjoy a beach setting. There are sand castles, water sports to rent, and all sorts of fun.

Lately Paris has been on my mind…

image

Been working on finding perfect images to capture my thoughts and find sources since last week. I used to never want to see Paris because I am a true modern girl and have a love of skyscrapers.
image

A few years ago I came across an image of the Eiffel Tower with a skyline in the background. I hopped on google and to my surprise, I found that Paris has a lot of modern skyscrapers. You never see them because you always see images of the old historical look of Paris. Ever since then, I realized I want to go there too see both

image

image

The older I get the more I have an appreciation for old design details and I think this city emcompasses the best of both worlds…

image

I think ideally, I would want to stay somewhere that had a balcony. It seems very cliche but having coffee and a croissant on a balcony would be simply perfect…

image

Then I would want to walk…and walk and walk to explore and not miss the beauty of everything like bridges….

image

I might even take public transportation somewhere especially when the metros look like this…

Fabulous Wedding Dance Floors….

image

image
I love the idea of renting vintage dressers and creating open shelving so ladies can have a spot to put their heels before hitting the dance floor…
image
In conjunction with that, providing flip flops for guest to change shoes for dancing is a cool idea. This is a favor that guest would really get use out of after the wedding…

Tiny Tot Thursdays: Reclining Gliders…

image
Today’s rocking chairs are stylish and nothing like your grandmother’s. Some of them have hidden rockers so they look just like regular chairs. I created a list of some that are modern and some that are traditional to outfit your baby’s room.

Time for fall shopping which means Summer Sales…

image

Ever since moving into my condo I have been paying off debt including one student loan (whooohoooo) first so I can save for the down payment to buy it next year. So things like the rec room and landscaping have been on hold. However, I know the best part of home purchases is buying when stores have major discounts. Patio and outdoor furniture have been on sale now for a while but I’m still waiting for some funky retro umbrellas to get marked down.

image

I like fringe styles but unsure if that’s what I want for my patio table. I am going back and forth on if I want a solid hot pink or black and white stripes…

Maybe I should scour Craigslist or Ebay and see what I find. I think something is incredibly nostalgic about seeing retro pieces of patio furniture from our childhood. I’m an 80’s baby and though I don’t want vintage seating, I do like when people mix some of the styles together for their yards. Even if it’s a small nook.

image

My fab cousins actually gave me their old patio table and chairs that I will spray paint next year and get new cushions. That will be another post. I know the color scheme I want is black, white and hot pink but I just haven’t decided the colors of the pieces… except the frames which will be pink.

image

Scalloped and key like trims are also fun and adds so much personality. Decisions decisions…

Remember when I blogged about…

image

…that graphic ceiling and gold chandelier here and then that abstract black and white art/vignette styling here? Well I just discovered from Simplified Bee that those two rooms were part of the San Francisco Decorators Showcase. Here are some other rooms of that home that like.

Every. Single. Thing in this bathroom is glamorous.

This is probably the prettiest basin and fixtures ever…

Funky wallpaper…

The details….like the acrylic bathtub tray…

Love the additional seating tucked under the table…
