Style Splurge: Carrera Marble

To be honest, there aren’t even photos that can truly capture my affinity for carrera marble.  It’s just one of those things that I put on my dream list and hope that one day I have just the perfect use for it in my home.

As some of you know, my husband and I live in this crazy old farm house in hopes of one day building a dream home on the back of the property.  My dream home will consist of LOTS of carrera marble.  There is just no way around it.

…but the dream home isn’t a reality yet, and you won’t find me splurging on carrera countertops in the current house.  That doesn’t mean we can’t have a dose of it right now, however.

I’ve been eyeing this coffee table for the better part of a year, and think it could be the perfect little bit to satiate by carrera appetite.

What are your thoughts?  Do you have white marble anywhere in your home?  It gets a bad rap for functionality, but man, I just don’t care!

Have a fabulous Tuesday, guys!

Outdoor Buffet

My outdoor space is a little lacking, so I jumped on the opportunity to take a fun outdoor bar/buffet piece that my mother in law was giving away.  It’s make from teak and is bar height.  I think it will make a wonderful addition to our patio (or what patio exists).

It has room to house a few bottles, some wine glasses and any other extras for an outdoor gathering. I placed it right next to the grill to serve as a spot for a little extra workspace as well. I think it definitely adds some character to my otherwise bland outdoor entertaining area.

What did you all do this weekend? Any fun finds?

Have a fantastic Monday!

FIVE circles porcelain votive holders $8 ea from west elm; SIX lasalle bistro set – just $86 and comes in 5 colors (even a bright yellow!) from Target.

Pretty brights and neutrals are on my wish list this Friday (along with a few more hours in the day)!  I’ve mentioned it a few times, but I’m doing the floral and table designs for two upcoming weddings – the first is next Saturday and then the second is the following Saturday.  It’s going to be a busy few weeks getting vases cleaned and prepped, ribbons, candles, table numbers, and placesettings all ready.  I’m curious if you guys are interested in seeing any of the progress?  Or just the finished products?

Aside from all of my crazy – what are you doing this weekend?

Have a FAB Friday and Weekend!

Details With // Jeanne of Shop Sweet Things

ONE This is a chinoise bowl I just received from my husband for my mother’s day gift. I actually featured it in one of my “Sweet Things Under $20″ series and he surprised me with this gift. Now it’s sitting nicely on our kitchen buffet cabinet. TWO I have a thing for collecting knick-knacks, especially empty jars with nice labels. I like to display them on the top shelf in my kitchen along with some cooking books. THREE Since I don’t have an office space and my desk is placed behind my sofa, I don’t have a wall where I can pin pretty things or inspirations. So I use my refrigerator to serve as my inspiration board – gotta work everything you have when living in a small space!

I’m really happy to have Jeanne from Shop Sweet Things on House of Earnest to share with you some special details of her home.  I met Jeanne this past January at Alt and I was smitten with her at the first lunch!  She is fabulously stylish and insightful. She really blew me away with how she held herself – very calm and graceful; I began to wonder if she ever has an ‘off’ day!

Jeanne has been featured in Glitter Guide, Matchbook Magazine, Refinery 29 and much more. Her style and taste is totally enviable, and she serves up a dose of it daily on her blog, Shop Sweet Things.

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!
