ikea lovely

a few months ago i came across little green notebook. i have no idea how it happened, but i am so glad it did. i check back almost daily to see what what she's been working on.

this project had me at hello.

back at it

i was so happy when i came across glamnest's list of the
top10 online sources for chic home decor.

note to self* buy something in bamboo.

easy update

this house is perfect inspiration for what i want to do with our house.
bungalow style homes are my absolute favorite!

the bones are similar enough that all we'd need to do is add the sunken porch where our little entry currently is.

she's having a baby

i spotted this barrie benson nursery years ago in domino.
i tore it our right then and saved it for the day when i would have a little peanut of my own.

i love the androgynous color palette, animal collection and dick and jane art work above the bed.

i'd love to use pops of bright color.
a steady, chic rocking horse.

i can't get enough of this larger than life giraffe.

i've been wanting a home for this dwell studio rug in my home.

this babymod crib is a perfect match, for a much lower price point.

rain boots

all these rain boots are right up my alley and only $20-$25!

these little fishes will be swimmin along with me.
{and maybe the matte black and yellow too.}

1 room, 3 ways




i swear the people at domino are geniuses.

we all the have the catch all room that really could be put to better use. these are layouts for an 11 x 13 office/guest room that can function as both.

you can find plans for your master bedroom, dining, or living room too!

cul-de-sac chic

call me june.
it took moving half way across the world to turn into a wannabe domestic goddess.

i find myself dreaming of getting back to a retro suburbia and becoming the modern june cleaver
{with a twist, of course}.

i could whip up apple pies or treats for all the neighborhood kids wearing this sweets apron.

exchange recipes or gossip about neighbors on this fabulous phone.

i could ride this to the park.

ok, realistically... this.
{my scarves will look better blowing in the wind anyway}

husband and i have already been checking out scooters. i can't wait!

eye wish

this kitchen is just like one eye've loved before. i've always wanted an apron sink. the white cabinets keep it so bright and clean while the stainless steel mini tiles add some sparkle and texture.

The black and white backdrop lets everything else pop. The zebra ottoman is so unexpected and the perfect touch.

love the splashes of candy apple green, yellow and aqua.

the master looks like a glamorous retreat to unwind in.

the kid's bedroom got some really different wall treatments by piecing together vintage wallpaper in the girl's and maps in the boy's.
