Wish a new year upon me, I’m taking myself up on one of my new year’s resolutions and putting these new fabrics to use. The upside of being in the design field is that I am constantly seeing new products and new uses of old products. The downside: my style preference is constantly changing (reason 100 my blog is titled as it is)! This time around I wanted playful fabrics, and the option to change things around without much effort. By creating reversible pillows, the patterns are interchangeable and it should take me a while before I get sick of all six sides.
The new piece above my bed is a photograph by Gray Malin, shot in Marfa, Texas. It’s a Prada store art installation filled with purses and shoes from the 2005 collection. It is sealed shut and Malin has created a series using mules, cowboys and models to bring the installation some humor. Read more about Maison Gray here.

While my iPhone case has been up for debate… my coworker calling it an easter egg and my mom poo poo’ing it, i think it is awesome and when I saw the door above, i knew it was proof.

I’ve always been a fan of monogramming but to some it can seem a bit stuffy and over the top. When done in such an adorable way as seen below, how are you not tempted to add it to your collection of pillows?

Last weekend was a wedding weekend for me so I’m feeling inspired by these beautiful images. I definitely want some homemade touches as I’ve always been crafty but with the amount of time all of that takes, I do not know how people do it!
To the moon and back.
And the wedding’s in Nashville.
Love the flower top

I absolutely love the image above designed by Moises Esquenazi & Associates. The whole scene is perfect. But more than that, the door looks like it could be a potential DIY project. Instead of just wishing for something, I’ve learned this past year through blogs that creating something instead of just pining for something is possible. You just have to get a little creative, find inspiration, and take a chance!
Inspired by Belladwella’s door makeover, I think it’s possible!
While building forts as a child was always fun and exciting, it was also fleeting. The forts were usually constructed out of sofa cushions and bedsheets and would need to be taken down from the main room by dinner time. A teepee, however, can be that remote place where you can escape to read a book or write in your diary.

Growing up, I loved to create and design. My bedroom was shaped like an “L” so my bed was tucked away and enclosed by three walls. I contained my doodles to that section, but I went wild. When friends came over we would write in big letters and draw funny faces. It became my diary. While the bedroom was eventually painted over, I think I may have faired better with a chalkboard in which I could express my creativity and then quickly erase if need be.

I’ve shared my progress here and there but I’m finally ready to put my hammer down and enjoy the view for a while. It’s temporary, so it isn’t perfect; but it has come a long way. From the DIY curtain blinds to the artwork from Siena, this room is all me and no room makes me happier than this one does.
