Window Shopping Wednesday – Wisteria (Accessories only)

Well I don’t know about you guys but after last week I can’t wait to see what else Wisteria has to offer.  I looooved their furniture.  Ready to check it out?

This weeks featured shop:  Wisteria (Accessories only)

You guys know me and my love of whimsy. I’d love to have these adorable mouse shakers!  (Update:  I got these cuties for Christmas as a gift from my mom!)

This florist’s bud holder is so sweet.  What a great way to show off individual blooms!

There are several beautiful blue vases available but my favorite is the milk bottle pictured in the middle.

My oh my!  How nifty is this lamp?  Soooo cool!

These nautical rope lanterns would be great for outdoor get-togethers over the summer.

I love the bright colors in this doormat.  I wish this baby came in a full-size rug for my patio seating area!

Mediterranean Doormat

These painted paddles would add so much character to your outdoor space and there are a zillion ways you could display them.  Wish they could come live at my house!

Mariner's Paddles

Aaaahhhh!  I WANT!!!  He needs to come live with me!

Ahab's Mighty Moby

These rock ducks are so cute and right up my MIL’s alley.

Creek Rock Ducks

We have a smaaaaall obsession with turtles in our house and this sweet baby is available in both blue and pink.  {heart}

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?

Banksia Bloom - Banksia Trees

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.

Chick Chick by Nancy Mims

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.

Harmony Art Sateen - 10 Flowers

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.

Havana - Little Blue Birds

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.

MicroMod - Tick Tock White

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

New Leaf - Festoon

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

Nursery Flannel - Ele-fête!

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!

Master Bedroom… Decisons Are Made!!!

inspiration photo

So I think we’ve finally figured it out!  We’ve found a picture that both my husband and I can agree on for our master bedroom.  Even better, the bed we’ve already purchased is nearly identical to the one pictured.  Yippee!  My inspiration picture (above) is from Gary Riggs Home via Pinterest.

We already have the bed.  It’s the Erin Cute as a Button Bed from World Market.

We also have our nightstands and a dresser.  They’re all from Ikea.

We’ve pretty much decided that instead of lamps on the nightstands, we’d rather have these Ribba Frames with overhead Lights in aluminum.

In keeping with the grey, lavender, and yellow theme of our inspiration picture, these are some pictures I’m considering for the Ribba frames.

I know I don’t want the same photo in each frame but I do want for the photos to be similar colors.  I think it’ll take a while to find exactly what I’m looking for.  Then again, we could do black and white…

As far as bedding is concerned, I’ve found the following:

I haven’t had much luck finding other grey-ish lavender coverlets.  Apparently this is going to take some intensive searching on my part. 

I also found these throw pillows:

We still want to incorporate this Cuddler Chair from Z Gallerie with a throw (like the one that follows).

Saffron Cable Knit Throw

We’ll definitely need lighting behind that cuddle chair and I think this light is right up our alley.

In the picture, there’s a nifty yellow chair similar to this Valencia Club Chair in Butter.  I’m not sure if we’d actually have space for this chair but it’s possible. 

Valencia Club Chair, Butter

Where I get stuck is this… our floors are not that rich, warm wood tone like in our inspiration photo.  Instead, they’re a light cream color similar to this below:

cottage cream

Because the color is so similar to that of the bed, I want to use a darker rug to anchor the room.  I’m leaning towards grey.  If I choose grey, however, then what color do I paint the walls?  Do I use a light cream like the photo?  A light grey?  A grey-ish lavender?  I’m at a loss. 

Here are some rugs I’m considering:

And last but certainly not least… I’m considering doing this ‘above the headboard’ treatment with a white sheer and some sort of sunburst mirror.

What do you think?  I’d love your suggestions.

Window Shopping Wednesday – Zara Home

Have you ever heard of a shop called Zara Home?  Nope?  Well I hadn’t either until the other day.  Turns out, they’re very similar to Anthropologie just without the insane price tag.

This weeks featured shop:  Zara Home

If you know me, you know that I love throw blankets.  This Hugo Throw is perfect for fall.  It should come live at my house (although if I’m honest, this is still out of my price range).

I like this Flag Decorative Quilt as well.  It looks great in this photo of what I assume is a teenage boys room but I also think it’d look amazing as the pop of color in a neutral room.

Man they have a selection of pillows to suit just about everyone.  I couldn’t pick just one so here are a few of my favorites.

Alhambra Pillow Cover

Everton Pillow

Minty Pillow

Ramio-Velvet Pillow (several colors available)

This New Leopold Bath Mat happens to match perfectly with my new master bedroom goodies.  I’m thinking he might need to come live in my master bath if his dimensions are right.

We love a little kitsch in our house and we have a goofy sense of humor.  We’d totally throw in this Duck Pitcher just to keep people guessing.

I’m not sure which set of servers I love more.

Cetus Servers

Or the Bernard Servers.  I do love me some mother of pearl.

OMG.  Speaking of kitsch and keeping people on their toes.  How freaking cute would it be to set a formal table and use these Bassotto Cutlery Rests?

These Swan Napkin Rings would be exquisite for a formal dining table.

This Asarta Stool is just wicked.  The texture is incredible!  Me amo!

I’ve never seen a frame quite like this Day Frame.  Gotta say, I’m a fan.

Man I think that’s probably my longest Window Shopping Wednesday EVER but there’s just so much cool stuff to find at Zara Home!  What would you buy?

Window Shopping Wednesday – OliveHandmade

Hey guys!  Today we’re checking out some of the cutest pillows I’ve seen in a long time!  Eek!  Hide my debit card!

This weeks featured shop:  OliveHandmade

I love this bird pillow AND it’s grey!  It’d go great in my soon-to-be grey and cream living room!

I’d love to send this postcard pillow to my nephews someday.  Isn’t this the coolest idea???

Olive you.  How cheeky!

I think this mister and missis pillow would be a great gift for newlyweds.

And if there’s a kiddo on your Christmas list this year you should definitely check out this panda pillow.   Just precious!

Thanks for shopping with me today!  See you next week!
