Going coastal

Hi friends,

Just a quick post today as it's another busy work day. I've pulled together a coastal inspired room design to share. I love the mix of a Victorian living room with cool coastal tones. So easy breezy and perfect as the summer months approach.

Updates to my son's room

Hi friends,

Sigh....the weekend has come and gone and it's back to the work week. I didn't get as much done as I would have liked but I did purchase a fun new outfit if that counts?

On the way to the mall, I stopped by to visit my Swedish friends at Ikea. They had some cute things for the boy's rooms that I picked up.

Check out this fun compass rug that I picked up for C's room:

These are the honeycomb shelves that I am super excited about. I found a good deal on them at our local Midoco store.

Just need to get my most handy husband to install them now :)

I am working on a modern, geometric, colorful theme for the room. I've seen some really amazing wallpaper but realistically I don't see me having time to put it up. Also my son's tastes are evolving and he may want something different shortly.

So I'm sticking to simple updates that are easily changed. Next up, something I've been promising forever. A new big boy bed. I'm thinking something like this:

My son wants a pull out bed for when friends sleep over (like his brother has) so I am on the look out for an inexpensive boy's bed with an upholstered headboard and a pull-out cot. Let me know if you know of any good options :)

I leave you today with this thought:

The urns have arrived!

Happy weekend everyone!

I am so ready for this weekend. No big plans just lots of taking it easy and decompressing.

Good news on the porch front. My spring flower arrangements have arrived. This year I splurged for the first time and ordered custom urn arrangements from our local flower shop. Mostly, I just pick up whatever the our grocery store has on offer but this spring I decided to go for it and get the urns I've always wanted. Hydrangeas all the way.

Here are some pics:

Fun Modern Geometric Art Ideas

Hi friends,

The end of the weekend is here....sigh. And Saturday was so nice. We started gardening and I managed to run / walk 5K along the beach while my youngest son rode his bike. The most perfect day. With the work week almost upon us, I need to savor these precious times.

We haven't done much lately on the house and I am starting to jones about it. I bought some cute hexagonal shelves for my son's room and ordered spring planters for the front porch urns so I should have some fun things to share soon.

In the meantime, for your viewing pleasure, I have rounded up a collection of fun modern art from Etsy. Lot's of geometry, blues and greens. I love them all
