Currently Loving…

These flower and herb arrangements by Cupcakes & Cashmere. I’ve been doing a bit of spring cleaning the last couple of days, and I’ve been thinking that our house needs a little more green. Plants, flower arrangements, terrariums…you get the idea. These herb infused arrangements are such a great idea, and since kitchen herbs are one of the few things I do really well with growing I would only have to buy the flowers.

    “I always have fresh flowers around the house, mainly for aesthetic purposes, but also love the added aroma they can bring to a room. Especially in areas that wouldn’t typically house florals, like the bathroom or kitchen, I like to have petite arrangements that really pack a punch. Lately I’ve been sticking to small, one-flower arrangements, but adding in a herbs for a nice contrast and invigorating scent. “

I might not be able to do the mint infusion. I usually use the fresh mint in lemonade or tea and I think Andy would be sad seeing whole sprigs slowly wilting away with nary a cold beverage in sight.

Beautiful Barn

I love this renovated old barn. The stone work, the exposed beams and all of the wonderful light? Heaven. I also really like that the decor, while lovely, is mostly functional. Houses are meant to be lived in, and while I understand the desire to have the perfect showcase home, I’d much rather be able to flop onto the couch without having to worry about ruining something. I really like the coffee table in the living room, I could see Andy and I taking turns sitting on it while the other one pushed the table around the room, I can even hear Andy making the “vroom-vroom” noises. A little immature, but so much fun!

Young at Heart

I may have been out of my teens for almost a a decade now, but I am absolutely besotted with the Emily & Mereitt collection for Pottery Barn Teen (collection available here). Target demographic be damned.  The feature blurb describes the collection as “perfect way to express your whimsical, one-of-a-kind style” and they pretty much nailed it. Although, I do roll my eyes a the “one of a kind style” bit; but it is whimsical and is inspired by two things that I love: vintage style and Wonderland.

My favorite piece is probably the bunny ear alarm clock, but I would get the unicorn head wall mount just to see Andy’s face when he sees it.

PS: If you have a few minutes to kill go click around the Emily & Meritt website, I love the design.

Color

Andy and I have been in our house for a little under two years now. It’s wonderful knowing that every mortgage payment we make brings us one month closer to making this place 100% ours. When we moved in, we painted the “important” rooms like the living room, kitchen, bedroom and office; and we bought the “important” furniture like a bed, dining room table and couch, but since that initial flurry of unpacking/decorating, things have sort of petered out. There has been the occasional bookshelf here, a futon for the guestroom, a mirror for the mantel there, but decor-wise our house is largely unfinished. Part of the delay is our desire to find unique good quality pieces, part is because unique good quality pieces tend to be a little expensive, and then there is the fact that we have very different opinions on what is “good” decor.  I  think  this beautiful home featured on Design Sponge (full post can be viewed here) may be kind of what we end up with, minus the neon pink. 9 times out of 10 I get to make the final purchase call, but I feel like the husband might put his foot down in this case.

H&M Home

Follow my blog with Bloglovin
The first time I ever went into an H&M store was when I was  visiting my friend Marie in NYC. I decided it was a the perfect place to try out new trends and find things I went through rather quickly like inexpensive ballet flats. Since we don’t have a store in or even near Tallahassee I do my best to visit any store I come across when traveling. To my delight I recently discovered that H&M is now offering online shopping! The cherry on top is the new H&M Home section. Cute home goods and ballet flats with a click of a button?! What more could a girl ask for?
