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.

Do you ever go out shopping for something and just happen to stumble over something PERFECT that you’ve been looking for FOREVER?  Yeah, that totally happened to the Hubs and I this weekend.  You see, we had a $75 off coupon to Lowe’s and we need tons of supplies for our renovation project so we headed that direction to pick up a few things.  We were wandering through the plants & patio section looking for a few plants and some bags of mulch when we stumbled across this:

He may not look like much but OMG he’s perfect!  I love rockers/swings but this guy is also crazy comfortable even if you prop your feet up on a footstool/ottoman.  The padding is super think and soooo comfy.  I seriously just wanted to take a nap in him.  We’ve been looking for super comfy outdoor chairs for years and years and this is the first one we’ve found that we’ve both fallen head over heels about.  The only problem?  He’s $248.  And we need 2.  And $500 just isn’t in our budget right now.  So, we left our patio chair soul mate at Lowes.  *tear, sniff, sniff*
