Olle Eksell

I had seen this interior image from a cute little blog called Little Fine Day and I just loved the print hanging on the wall. I recently found out that the designer behind image is Olle Eksell, a Swedish designer. I did a little more investigating here. I would l.o.v.e. to find this print...but where, oh where?

Happy almost weekend!

excited. I ordered this book the other day. waiting patiently... 

Do you guys have any other book candy to share?

shoe envy.

I've been really anti-heel in my shoe wearing lately, but these are so fantastic! a TENOVERSIX and Vena Cava collab.  I haven't felt this way in a long time.

color collection

I've had this color combo in my head for a while now.  I'll put it here for safe keeping.

Wednesday pep talks

from little ones...

just darling.

a growth.

{random indoor plan goodness} 

I like the idea of a corner or wall in a room where there is a mashup of different plants, just runnin' wild.

{beautiful flower arrangement at the wedding in Hawaii}

Might try and bake some cookies (using these from Ikea), working a farmer's market with a friend, and flea market.

Have a great weekend!

I hope my fig tree grows up big and tall to look like this.  There seems to be no empirical evidence of growth as of yet (it's been four months). kiiiinda worried

LA Craig

$200 bucks for the pair. In LA. I would keep fabric as is in the right setting.

I heart art: Laura Letinsky

loving Laura's use of negative space, unexpected color and lived in subject matter.

when I wear blankets around the house, I tend to look that this. The Shield of Wings blanket from Birkiland is awesome. neutral stripes ✓ scalloped edges ✓ warmness ✓

Jil Sander Spring 2011

Before & After: A little project (Part 3)

Here's the bedroom. Kind of mellow in terms of a huge transformation, just a little more homey and comfortable.



done and done! 

some simple changes and using what you have can in the right way make a big difference.

Before & After: A little project (Part 2)

hi. since we've already covered the living room transformation, lets move on to the hallway.

super sad looking shelf. tons of great books, too dark of a wall color for that small of a space, in my opinion. we ended up painting the walls the same lighter green moss color. trim = whitish. you can tell I've very particular about my paint colors. oh and hire me, I work real hard. as seen here:

you can see the sweat forming if you look really close.

let's get to the after

goodness gracious, these photos are grainy! I guess you get the idea. found this cute little pair of blondie wood chairs at Goodwill for $12.  We constructed the bookshelves. I hung that cow photo upside down, because I wanted to be avant-garde (and because it was a cool reflection shot).

all shelving was handmade. I like the organic branch leg. heirloom mirror, with a nice (walnut?) wood frame. way more open and airy than before. overall, a success. so cottage-y.

ok, so looks like there will be a part 3 posted later today. last and final...thanks for reading!
