A Beautiful Specimen

I’ve always loved the look of specimen type art within a curated collection, but a part of me thought it was also a little creepy to have framed dead things on my wall. Even if you’re not creeped out, artwork made with once-live butterflies can run you a few hundred dollars.

I compromised with myself the other day after seeing some faux butterflies in my local craft store and decided to make my own butterfly ‘specimen’ art.

With a gluegun and a steady hand, this pretty and nature inspired art can be customized in so many ways.  Keep reading for more details on the making of this piece.

and don’t forget – the West Elm GIVE-A-WAY ends tonight at midnight!

Our Home: Sprucing Up a Summer Living Room

I love sprucing up a room to make it feel seasonally appropriate.  My previous living room textiles, although not too specific to winter, were a few years old and I felt like the room needed a little pick-me-up.  A little trip to West Elm yesterday was all my living room needed! I went with light and bright shades of yellow, chartreuse, and green for an airy, summer feel.  The green-yellow cushion cover in my little nook has a really pretty embroidered chevron detail.

I also wanted to bring some of the green from outside into the house, and a pair of succulents in a pretty planter along with a larger plant in a woven basket do just the trick. I also added a smaller votive holder in a bright grassy green.

On the couch I added some new cushion covers in a hand embroidered grey and a brightly colored silk.  A greenish-yellow fuzzy blanket gives the perfect pop and will come in handy for cool summer nights.

The new additions are definitely brightening up my Monday!  What do you think?  Do you like the color direction?

NOT TO BE MISSED… I have a secret surprise for you (that relates to this revamp) coming up tomorrow at 8am.  Be sure to stop back by!

What’s on your agenda?  Anything exciting, or possibly some relaxing?

Have a FAB Friday and weekend!

Minimal Rustic Glam

You thought it couldn’t be done, right? This apartment is such a balanced mix of glam with raw/rustic elements.  I think it’s a beautiful combo, don’t you think?

I can see a stylish, creative single lady living here, but there are other elements I can take as inspiration in my own home.

Furs mixed with pastels? Yes! Giant mirrors propped up against a large empty wall? Yes!

What piece of this apartment could you see yourself incorporating into your home?

Have a GLAMOROUS Thursday!

Details With // Amanda Genther

Today is an exciting ‘Details With’, we have Amanda Genther from Amanda Genther Design Studio sharing three details from her home and studio. Amanda is a fabulous graphic designer and has an eye for fresh, minimalist concepts.  She believes that less is more, bigger isn’t always better, and that coffee is the new water (which i like).  Amanda is the one I went to earlier this year for a complete site and branding redesign and I couldn’t have had a better experience.  There is no doubt that her aesthetic in business translates to her home.  She has colorful, clean, and understated style with a little hint of mid-century. Take a look through Amanda’s favorite details!

ONE a collection of Sharpies I have next to my desk. I use them to sketch and add little touches of color around the office. TWO a handmade side table for our living room. It matches the custom legs on our media stand. THREE a few of our colorful dessert plates. I loved the pattern on them and HAD to have them. 

I glad to share Amanda’s details with you! Don’t you just LOVE those plates?

Have a BEAUTIFUL Wednesday out there, guys!

Our Home: Front Porch Updates

Happy Monday!  I’ve been up to so much these past couple weekends at home that I thought I’d give you a little update from the homefront. 

I’ve written here and here about the plans we have for our homes exterior, and we’ve been spending the last couple weekends at home getting ready for summer and sprucing up our front porch.

The project started by ripping off the old lattice that surrounds the opening under our porch and cleaning out old brush, weeds, and debris.  We then worked to paint new lattice, a seriously painstaking project.  KEEP READING BELOW for more pics and the complete story on our front porch facelift.
