photo update maybe

: : I think this weekend it might happen. I have the whole weekend to myself to work on the apartment, and I might just find the camera and be able to put together a small photo collage of our new place.

I think this room divider is cool. I apologize, I can no longer remember where I found it.

nonchalant mom

: : domino mag has been a constant source of inspiration for me lately. and I just received the new issue in the mail!! I found this article about .carina schott. , owner of nonchalant mom [via decor8]. it reminds me of home somehow, maybe it's the forest setting, the black facade with a red door, the simplicity of the house....I don't know, but there's a very scandinavian feel about it. I love how the house is built in two parts. the house just seems to have a really good balance of function and aesthetics. some day....maybe we'll find a house like this.

Get Outdoors!

With summer well on the way, its time to rethink our outdoor spaces. Even if you have limited space, think about how you like to spend your time outdoors. Sometimes a few chairs and a small side table is all it takes to enjoy the great outdoors!

bedroom rug

: : we're planning on painting our bedroom a pale green, and are having a hard time finding a rug that will fit well. we don't want a light colored rug because it gets dirty so quickly. so I'm liking this hot pink. anyone know where you can get rug tiles like this in hot pink?

: : the big move

: : so the big move happened on sunday. two truck loads, two moving dudes and some very helpful friends....and then we were sitting in our new apartment, surrounded by boxes and pieces of furniture stacked on top of each other. every day there are improvements, but we have a long way to go. we're currently working on picking some colors for the rooms. nice timing with the long weekend coming up. it will likely be spent unpacking and painting. I promise I will share updates on here. it's just that, I can barely find clothes to wear in the mornings, let alone a camera to document our progress. soon.....

all I know is that .hanna werning's. animal flower wallpapers will be decorating our walls, somewhere in the apartment!

Unique Kitchen Cabinets

I'm seeing more unique kitchen cabinets these days. One look I particularly like is the rough worn look. I bet this is probably a love it or hate it sort of look, but I like it. Oh and how beautiful is that refrigerator in the top picture? I mean honestly. I couldn't have one of those tho, my food is not pretty enough to be displayed everyday lol!

The Little House That Could

Country Home magazine took a 929 square foot cottage and gave it a makeover. Just click the title of this post and it will take you to the story. I think they did a great job! Very bright and airy!

Using Your Extra Space

Extra space? Who has THAT?? Most of us actually! You know the space, that odd wall your not sure what to do with. That quirky corner in your hall. When space is at a premium, use it wisely. I've been known to let a empty space "go" and see how my life flows around it. Then I decide whats best for it. Don't put what you think should go there, put what works there. If you enter your home from the back, you don't need a entry table for keys at the front door. Planning is key!

in the right place at the right time
