Last week we had a blast on vacation!!  This week, I have been watching my twin nephews (pictured is Regan) and they have been keeping us busy busy busy but I am loving every moment of it.  Pictured above is a few Instagram’s from last week.  If you look closely, you’ll see that Eden’s nose is a little red.  Yeah, she had a giant fall and that precious nose of hers is slowly healing.

I hope that you all enjoyed everyone’s favorite spaces!  So much beautiful inspiration.  Thank you everyone who participated!

See you on Monday!

Today I am excited to introduce to you Happy Home, a lovely new book from fabric designer Jennifer Paganelli from Chronicle Books.  This book is a little more whimsical than other books that I have chosen for my craft book collection but it’s a must if you ask me.  It’s full of rich colors and vibrant patterns.  What struck me about Happy Home is how many projects I can do with my daughter, Eden.  From the vintage banner to the crocheted pillowcase.  The pom pom party pouf is another project that I think I’m going to try and finish before my daughter’s birthday party.  They are the perfect party accessory!  Now, I’m not a seamstress by any means but Jennifer has laid the instructions out to make it easy for even the dummies of the sewing/craft world.  Have fun with these projects and involve your kiddos for some wonderful memories to be made.



“I’m a big believer is simple bedrooms. For me, I must have a place where I can unwind and just let my mind rest
after processing so many images and information all day. This place is perfect for that. It’s not an empty box but
it accomplishes that non fussy look perfectly!”

Jennifer Hagler of A Merry Mishap.

“I immediately fell head-over-heels for this space when I spied its bleached floors, modern furniture (so coveting a Bertola Diamond chair) and its juxtaposition with those cozy, warm bookshelves. If this room was mine, I’m pretty sure I’d never leave it!

Erin Hiemstra from Apartment 34.



“I really long for a luxurious bathroom and preferably one that has both indoor and outdoor space since there is nothing better than being able to take a shower outside. This is perfection in my opinion; a simple, beautiful space where one can relax and unwind.”

“I love everything about this space.  This room, although simply decorated, captures so many of my favorite design elements which are, interesting lighting, white walls, combining the old and the new and the ability to achieve a look that is pretty but never pretentious.”

Trina McNeilly from La La Lovely.



“I don’t think I can pick just one thing about this space I love, it’s all so beautiful — the light, black and white artwork, the open shelving, white tiles, farmhouse sink, the mix of white and wood and those little pops of color! Killer.”

Eva Black



“One of my favorite spaces has to be the beautiful home of lou mora and sarah yates.  The mix of charcoal walls, reclaimed wood and pops of color really define this space.  The couple managed to make a modern home feel extra cozy.  I’m especially drawn to the artwork and personal items found throughout this home.”



This is the small guest bed nook in a barn-like, attic space of the home of two artists in East Austin. I love it because the light is perfect, I love the colored quilt, I love the A-shape of the ceiling and I love that this would be perfect spot for me to curl up with a couple of cats and a good book.

“My favorite interior right now is a pink bedroom I recently decorated for The Mary Magdalene Charity Design Project through Hartman House.  These woman have had a very rough life and I wanted to create a safe beautiful room and one that was pink.  I didn’t want it to be too girly I wanted it to be cool but a bit sophisticated, I think I succeeded, And guess what, now I want a pink room.”

“For me a perfect room is filled with the magic trifecta of light, plants, and books. This one hits all those marks and then some, with interesting off-kilter touches like that massive white chandelier hung off-center and a little low. The space is personal and beautiful and quirky and just spot-on in every way…”

“Ever since the home of Sarah Davison was featured in Vogue Living Australia I’ve been in love with every nook and cranny of her space. Her aesthetic is very similar to my own, which is why I’m probably drawn to it – the mix of old treasures and modern makes for a peaceful, serene home. Something I strive to do in my own space.”

Caitlin Flemming from Sacramento Street.



“I’ve been head of heels for this entryway since the moment I set eyes upon it a few weeks ago. I think it’s because it totally has me in the summertime mood thanks to the Amalfi wallpaper on the walls with it’s Mediterranean vibe. I’d be very happy to see this every time I walked through my front door!”

Will from Bright.Bazaar



“Summertime in the desert means idle chat around the house about traveling to somewhere cooler. Camping might not be so bad if this is what my boyfriend meant.”

Morgan Satterfield from the Brick House.




“I love everything about this space but if I had to choose ONE thing, it would be the table! I love how it’s smack dab in the middle of a decently sized kitchen – leaving plenty of room to hang out and enjoy meals together.”
