Fab Feature – Lacquer & Linen

A few months ago I featured this fabulous boys nursery room from Orchard Girls. Well, I have an equally fabulous girls nursery room for you today from Lacquer & Linen. I actually found this by accident when I was looking for ideas to make over an Ikea dresser I have. Upon following the link I stumbled onto the beautiful room that Sarah created for her baby girl and fell in love.

Want to know why?

It’s because Sarah and I share a dislike for the color pink.

Even though I don’t want kids, back in the day I thought I did want them and I actually stressed over what I would do for nursery colors if I had a girl. I hate pink! I love how Sarah combined the white and grey neutrals (my faves) with coral to give it a girly vibe without looking like pink cotton candy exploded everywhere. It’s just fabulous! Plus, she DIYed a lot of projects which gets her major points in my book.

Okay can I just say how much I absolutely adore that light??? Omg!

And that wingback rocking chair??? We love wingbacks in our house and I love to rock or swing. I’d want this in my house even without a kiddo to rock in it (I can rock the cats right??).

Oh and here’s the Ikea Hemnes dresser makeover that originally brought me to Sarah’s blog. Isn’t it fabulous? I can’t wait to do something similar with some Ikea dressers we have in our master bedroom.

Fab Feature – Orchard Girls

If you’ve been reading my blog for any point of time then you know that all of my kids have four legs and a tail.  If you know me at all on a personal level then you know that the only kids I will ever have will have four legs and a tail.  That being said, I can still appreciate super cute kid stuff like this fabulous little boy nursery mood board from Orchard Girls.

I mean really, how stinking cute is that??? Let’s play the favorite part game!  Mine would be that woodland painting with the Pinterest link that, of course, leads to nowhere.  Go figure.  Ha!

Be sure to come back on Wednesday for Window Shopping Wednesday because I’ll be hosting my first ever giveaway from a shop I L*O*V*E!!! See you soon!

Window Shopping Wednesday – Honey be Good

Holy moley my loves!  I ran across this shop the other day and OMG!!!  Talk about some cuuuuute fabrics!  Eek!  Plus, they’re good for you and the environment.  Check it out…

All of the cotton fabric in our shop is certified organic by either The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) or the Organic Exchange. Look for the ‘Growth and Production’ tab on the fabric detail page for information on the certifying entity.

We also carry hemp blends. Hemp is naturally pest-resistant, uses less water than cotton and is generally considered a sustainable crop not needing certification. Our solid color hemp fabric is a hemp/lyocel blend. The hand screen-printed textiles are on a hemp/GOTS organic cotton base cloth.

This Modern Home Fat Quarter Bundle … oh… what can I say about it?  Uhh, I’m in love with the llamas?  So stinking adorable.  This would make a to die for quilt.

I {heart} these Banksia Trees!  Can’t you just imagine a pillow made with this fabric?

This print is called Chick Chick by Nancy Mims and if you look reeeaaaal close you’ll notice that the redish color is actually hens standing on top of eggs.  Cheeky!  For some reason I’d really like to put this fabric on something in our screened patio.

This print is called Harmony Art Sateen – 10 Flowers and I can totally see this in a little girls room somewhere… perhaps as a line of fabric on the bottom of a solid white quilt?  So sweet.

My MIL is going through a bit of a bird phase and I’m sure she’d love this Little Blue Birds print by Havana.  This would be really cute as a seat cover on a screened in patio chair.

When I saw this fabric I thought “how mod!” which is funny considering it’s called MicroMod – Tick Tock White.  To add a bit of glitz, I would sew clear sequins onto the small white dots in the center.

I think this New Leaf – Festoon fabric would make an adorable skirt for the spring, especially if topped with a cardigan set.

Have a little one in your life?  This Nursery Flannel – Ele-fête! might just be the perfect thing!

This Raaga – Roost print is just lovely.  I love the colors and you know I love me some peacocks.

Does this make anyone else want to hoard fabric or is it just me?

Happy shopping!

Window Shopping Wednesday – West Elm (Furniture only)

I love spring.  I love decorating for spring.  I want my house to be finished so that I can decorate for spring.  Lots of wishful thinking going on around here, haha.  I’ve been eyeing some goodies from West Elm for a while now and I dedcided to do a Window Shopping Wednesday tour of West Elm for the next few weeks just like I did with Z Gallerie a while back.  Ready to get this party started?

I’m kinda loving this Oliver Chair.  I even love this tropical print although if you’re not digging it, it also comes in several other (tamer) fabrics.

This Sutton Sofette is the perfect size for small apartment or even for the end of the bed if you have a really large bedroom.  Those clean lines are just yummy.

This Carved Wood Side Table would make a great addition to any room.  It’s neutral enough to go practically anywhere and it’s slightly Moroccan look adds an international flair!

In case you’ve been living under a rock let me clue you in… the industrial look is all the rage right now.  What I love most about it is that it looks good AND it’s functional.  What a concept!  This rolling cart (which comes in several different sizes) is a great looking storage option.  I can just see this in a kitchen loaded down with labeled glass jars showcasing items like flour, sugar, rice, etc.

Design Workshop Rolling Carts

Bone inlay + a herringbone pattern… COME TO MAMA!  This wall mirror would look exquisite if you had two side-by-side over a long bathroom vanity.  Oooo!  I want!!

Parsons Wall Mirror - Bone Inlay

These dining chairs are so posh.  I think they could glam up any space in no time.  Don’t you just love them?

Willoughby Dining Chair

This wood-tiled dresser just screams ‘nursery’ to me.  It could be used for a boy or girl and then be used later on down the line once they’re all grown up.

Thanks for shopping with me today!
