Li2bitt…

When styling a kitchen, I love using unusual items to fill the space.  Li2bitt is a set of salt and pepper shakers made out of concrete in the shape of city fire hydrants designed by Elda Bellone and Davide Carbone.  I would love a set of these in my own kitchen!  

Llamas’ Valley…

Happy Monday folks!!  If you need some inspiration to start your week off with, Llamas’ Valley released their one year anniversary issue today and it’s FANTASTIC!

Planters…

With summer quickly approaching, it’s almost time to start planting.  And with planting comes the perfect pots.  And the perfect pots are coming from West Elm this year.  Seriously, I am so impressed with their selection!  I have my eye on several different styles.

Inspiration {Swedish Design}…

Here is some major space inspiration from Åsberg Interiör & Styling.  

Growth…

I have become more and more of an art lover the older I get.  This art print titled “Growth” by Carrie Marill, is the perfect mix of colors, textures and shapes.  You can find this piece and many more ultra cool pieces at 20×200.

This last Saturday, Kristin and I hosted a meet & greet with Vanessa De Vargas.  Such fun times!  Annie and Brandon of Heirloom & Vine graciously let us use their fantastic studio space.  Talented and creative peeps (like Jennifer and Joyce) came out for some hang out time with the beautiful Vanessa, whom I absolutely [...]

Holaria…

My husband and I, mostly my husband, LOVE searching for and watching creative videos on Vimeo.  It opens up the big wide world of talent and creativity for us viewers to gaze upon.  I recently was introduced to Holaria, a porcelain design studio from Brazil.  Above is a short film that was made about the [...]

A Perfect Palette…

I am IN LOVE with Cassie’s palette choices this week!  So fresh and springy.  She did a great job pairing the pastels with one or more bold colors to create a beautiful color contrast.  Gorgeous! Head over to the Veda House to see my Insider’s Tips. Images via Livet Hemma and The Design Files.  

Geo Collection…

How cool are these Geo side tables from Made.com??  They would look perfect on either side of a bed.

Project…

Hi peeps!  It’s Sunday and I’m blogging!  This never happens but is happening today.  This past week has been National Painting Week.  Sherwin Williams approached me about participating in National Painting Week by creating a paint project.  It was perfect timing because we are getting our home ready for a photo shoot this week, so [...]

The Happenings…

It’s supposed to get up to 88 degrees on Sunday so I’m thinking it’s time to clean out and prepare our back patio for warm weather!  I love the look of this outside living space.  Comfy and pretty! If you live in Boise and are a design enthusiast, don’t forget about the meet & greet [...]

A short film about a girl and her umbrella…

Going along with this post, I put together a little video of Eden twirling the Sky Umbrella.  She’s a cutie, that Eden Jo!
