That’s Pinteresting

Occasionally, I come across something so inspiring that it makes it’s way onto one of my Pinterest boards. And by occasionally, I mean several times a day. Pin Problems.

And what better way to feed my addiction than to transplant it here? So, every Friday-ish I’ll now dedicate a post to highlighting a few of my favorite projects, pics, etc, found floating around Pinterest from the previous weeks. Which doesn’t mean that Fridays are solely for this series. I may periodically pop in with with an extra post as well!
Now, on with “That’s Pinteresting!”

Let’s start with the most important announcement..umm, ever.

Sofa. Green. Velvet? At IKEA. Debut – Fall 2013. Should I get in line now?

I’m craving some warmer tones in our home. We have plenty of yellow, but something keeps drawing me back to pink. Watch out Ricky ;)

I’m sure you’ve seen this lovely nursery by Honey & Fitz.. but it’s too good not to share. I’m especially loving the shelf & toy bins combo.

We have a few large trees in the backyard that would look so cute with a built-on bench.

We already established our color scheme for the new landscaping, but this just confirms how much I love the yellow and shades of purple together. Now, if I could just make ours look this good…

I caught a glimpse of this Sarah Richardson nursery on her show months ago, so glad I stumbled upon it again. I really wish you could pin images from TV.

We don’t have a basement (aka. man cave), so Ricky tells me that the garage is all his. BUT maybe I could sneak in something small like this organized pantry?

There’s something so refreshing about this space. Maybe it’s the natural wood tones making their way back. I think I may be starting to tire of all the darker wood these days.

And to wrap it up today, my favorite pin of the week. Breanna Rose discuses the importance of defining your strengths as a freelancer. A really good read if you’re like me, and struggling to find balance in your work & family life.

That’s Pinteresting

It’s baaaaaack. I know, I’ve been on quite the hiatus from “That’s Pinteresting”, but no fear, this series is here to stay. Now, it’s just a matter of successfully getting the posts up ;) 

Occasionally, I come across something so inspiring that it makes it’s way onto one of my Pinterest boards. And by occasionally, I mean several times a day. Pin Problems.

And what better way to feed my addiction than to transplant it here? So, every Friday-ish I’ll now dedicate a post to highlighting a few of my favorite projects, pics, etc, found floating around Pinterest from the previous weeks.

Now, on with “That’s Pinteresting!”

WARNING – This posts was weeks in the making. It. Is. Long. Good luck.

Let’s officially get this out there – I CAN NOT get enough of this color combination. Corals, pinks, oranges, yellows. It’s fun, it’s young, and SO happy. These paintings by Michelle Armos are to-die-for. I’m hoping to tackle an art gallery in the bedroom hallway eventually, and I’m thinking a smaller version would be a lovely addition!

Some Pinterest projects are just too good not to try yourself. Consider these boxes on that list. How adorable is this – Make a keepsake box full of mementos and pictures from a trip, rather than trying to scrapbook everything. Mind = Blown.

I love this idea for making a keepsake box full of mementos and pictures from a trip, rather than trying to scrapbook everything!

Now that our kitchen is nearly complete, it’s rare that I pin kitchen spaces. This one was worthy. Check out that natural wood butcher block island and lantern ceiling light. So fresh.

Obviously, that was a lie. I could never pin enough kitchens. Yellow cabs, concrete counters, black accents. Gahh..

I may be spending more time on Society 6 than Pinterest these days. You know that says a lot. I have a hardcore crush on Emily Rickard’s work. And again with the color combo.

Not like this photo needs anymore help blowing up the blogosphere.. but I couldn’t help myself. It has my mind overflowing with ideas for our green file cabinet.

It’s a daily struggle to restrain myself from filling our entire house with watercolor products. They’re just SO good.

That’s Pinteresting

Occasionally, I come across something so inspiring that it makes it’s way onto one of my Pinterest boards. And by occasionally, I mean several times a day. Pin Problems.

And what better way to feed my addiction than to transplant it here? So, every other Friday I’ll now dedicate a post to highlighting a few of my favorite projects, pics, etc, found floating around Pinterest from the previous weeks. Which doesn’t mean that Fridays are solely for this series. I may periodically pop in with with an extra post as well!
Now, on with “That’s Pinteresting!”

I think I have a girl crush on Emily Henderson.. which really isn’t ideal (DO NOT tell), since Ricky does too. And it’s seems like her rooms are making a regular appearance on this series. Do you ever admire someone’s work so much that it begins to irritate you. Like, oh another design from Emily.. prepare to be blown away. Boo. Seriously girl, share the talent. Hand it over.

I stumbled upon this gorgeous nursery again while working on a design for a client. I’ve probably pinned it multiple times, but it’s easy to see why. So calming.

I want, no, need outdoor string lights… but it won’t be happening this year unless a serious miracle happens in the backyard. I’ll keep my fingers crossed!
