a few of my favorite things…

I’ve had a habit for a really long while now.

I peruse the internet, see something I like, quick, take a screen shot of that liked something, and then leave it to clutter my desktop for weeks to come. Then eventually I’ll begin to organize these aesthetically pleasing somethings into ambiguously named folders, i.e. “i like” or “april inspiration.”

I have a lot of these somethings floating around at the moment. So I thought I’d share some with you. Their whereabouts come from the multitude of design/cooking blogs I scour on a daily basis.

that sofa and painting sing sweet nothings to me

have I mentioned how much I adore owls and bud vases? no?

it’s that time of year again where images of succulent gardens start popping up everywhere. I unfortunately don’t have anymore indoor space for anymore succulents. We’re busting at the seams I tell ya!

love the colors and handmade whimsy in this living area

crazy about the yellow and taupe linens as well as the fresh flowers and mid century bedside table. This is from the bedroom of one of my favorite bloggers, besides being hilarious she’s got great taste!

NOM, definitely saved the best for last. If I don’t make these soon my mind may explode.

fancy furniture

It’s no secret that I’m a HUGE fan of anything and everything Mid-Century modern. I’m always seeking it out online and in furniture stores. Someday I’d like to have a really stunning Mid-Century dining room table…but for now I’ll be happy with the two Mid-Century dressers that we have in our master.

Alex’s mom scored the dressers for him when he was a college student and I’m pretty sure she got them for FREE! I always knew they looked Mid-Century but didn’t know that they were true authentics until Alex noticed the Kent Coffey stamp on the inside of one of the drawers last weekend.

He did a quick google search online and found one of our exact dresser for $1500 on eBay. Schwing! And I dare say that ours is in better condition! The other one that stands tall is actually my favorite of the two, but I think they go so well in our master with the perfect wood color and design.

Some of our friends have already told us that they’d sell them, but hey, we work hard and we deserve to have nice pieces in our house. Therefore, these dressers are here to stay…forever!

This Condo Sings Sweet Nothings to me

Upon scouring one of my favorite blogs the above image provided me with shear comfort, pleasantries, and WANT of everything in the space. An artist in Chicago lives here and MUST call me first when he decides to have a fire sale. The colors, textures, and composition of everything in his home sends chills through my designer bones. Help me.

Go here to see the entire house tour. be careful.

I have cool friends

Picture 3

Today I was haphazardly scrolling through one of my favorite blogs, Design*Sponge, when I came across a collaboration of furniture and pet that I had definitely seen before. Where I’d seen it, in my super talented/fellow art major, Erin Heath’s blog…where she speaks of her quirky home finds and craft projects. But then I realized I wasn’t reading her blog but Design*Sponge, a blog read by millions. She’s super cool and definitely deserves a shout out based on the awesome work that she does.

Go here to read the full post.

scrumptious living area

For some reason I can’t take my eyes off this ensemble of lickable furniture. Love the mid-century modern style of the sofa AND the pop of green in the chair. The color palette is creamy and fresh, much like an avocado. I can see myself sipping wine in this room and eating chocolate…always eating chocolate.

Apparently Buenos Aires is the place to go if you’re on a budget

Picture 5

I was haphazardly browsing because I was in daydream mode. I was picturing prancing around top notch travel destinations in the perfect outfit…no really I was. Then I stumbled upon THIS AMAZING APARTMENT in Buenos Aires’s Recoleta neighborhood. The location, furnishings, and views are all stunning and then I got to the crazy part…it’s $490/week and $1390/month in the high season. Yes, Alex and I could stay there for an entire month well under $1500. Prices like that are unheard of for me.

Now I just need to find some cheap air fare and some more vacation days. gahhhhhhh

Buenos Aires was already on the list of places I really really really want to go to…now it’s numero uno.
