Cool Breeze

The arden fan in oil rubbed bronze is all you need to create style and a cool breeze through the home this summer. I love the tripod legs and walnut finish. It would look great on a porch or patio during an outdoor dinner. The industrial design is right up my alley. -Callie



Rainbow Chaser: Little Miss Chevron

I have an old dresser that I want to paint and found this inspiring photograph of a green & white dresser. The chevron design adds depth and contrasts nicely with the circular knobs. I love it against the pale blue walls. What do you think? -Callie


Let's Get Crafty: Colorful Vase

I just love this craft project that I stumbled upon on Sweet Paul. You take a clear bottle and alternate the exterior with washi tape, a type of Japanese rice paper that comes in tons of colors and patterns. It's also easy to tear, can be written on and applied to walls and furniture! Etsy's PrettyTape sells some great colors.


Freshen Up With: Colorful Ottomans

The Re-trouvé ottoman. The bright, summery colors are so cheerful and they would look great in a pair in front of a sofa or at the foot of the bed for an extra surface. My favorite is the cherry red!


Beachin' It At Home

Sometimes we can't always make it to the beach so why not bring the beach to your own backyard?

upside down...

I've been hunting for a simple coat rack for my front entry and stumbled upon this DIY coat rack on Better Homes and Gardens that is made from hangers. Clever and it looks great. Here are the instructions. -Callie



Rainbow Chaser: Summer Treats

I'm inspired by the colors found in summer treats like La Newyorkina's ice pops. Flavors like avocado, tamarind and cucumber-lime not only sound refreshing but can be a bright color to incorporate into your home. Wouldn't the deep orange of a mango-chile pop mix well with the deep, blood red color of hibiscus? -Callie


trying hard not to buy...

all of these porcelain trays from West Elm. They would look striking in the bathroom, bedroom, kitchen - anywhere as a catchall for your stuff.  I also love black and white so naturally I need these... -Callie


Colour My Life

I stumbled upon this photograph on Style Me Pretty and was so captured by the colors. The succulents wrapped up and stuffed into an old blue glass jar would make a perfect little piece inside the home. I think I'd rest mine on a sunny window ledge. -Callie


pretty patchwork

I love the new patchwork pillows from TAS-KA. The felt woolfelt line adds a punch of color that's just right. They would look pretty on a bed for a dash of color and pattern. -Callie


Freshen Up With: Colorful Illustrations

these hand-drawn, water color illustrations from Etsy's Peggy Wolf. The colors are so bright and the vintage inspired design speaks to my heart.  -Callie


Gift Guide: Welcome Home

After a long day, all I want to do is kick off my shoes and cozy up on the couch (glass of champagne optional!). Here are some of my favorite picks to welcome you home...

{1. faces bar set tool at William Sonoma; 2. chunky knit throw by Nordstrom; 3. ballerina slipper at Bed, Bath and Beyond; 4. Olya cocktail glasses at CocktailTown; 5. magnolia candle at Linnea's Lights}


summer color

Sometimes I forget that small bursts of color in unexpected home pieces like coasters can create a powerful impact and feel to a room. So, when I stumbled upon the citrus coasters from The Purl Bee, I thought just that. These lovely little creations are easy to make and the best part is that they don't require a sewing machine to create. They also remind me of candy and that always makes me happy. -Callie


floral love

trying hard not to buy any of the floral rugs from Urban Outfitters. Did I mention they're all under $35!!  -Callie


July 4th Weekend...

I just love this vintage photograph taken at the beach. As the weekend is nearing and my family is off for a few days, I bid you a relaxing holiday! I can't leave you without a sweet bit of July 4th inspiration...

Simple vanilla cake with with a flag inside from Glorious Treats. Find the recipe here. I love the cake bunting she made using paper straws and twine.
