We’re just a few days away from Thanksgiving and I’m happy to say that it’s shaping up to be a relaxed one in our household. Well, with a toddler and a preschooler perhaps “relaxed” is an overstatement but nevertheless…
I wanted to take a moment to share a little bit of news… I’ve been an avid Remodelista reader since 17thandRiggs.com was launched in 2008 and grateful for the new and inspirational finds they share. (For any of you not currently following this site and home design/decor resource, they are an impeccable source of inspiration so do read up when you have a chance!) Remodelista released their first hardcover publication this month. Remodelista: A Manual for the Considered Home is a lovely book filled with house tours (including actress Julianna Moore’s NYC kitchen), tons of inspiration and design ideas, and a curated list of their 100 must-have items for the home.
I’m drawn to certain colors (pastels and brighter tones) in the warmer, summer weather and when I feel summer winding down, I start to crave a richer palette. However, a vibrant orange can span the seasons and live year-round in all of it’s glory. That’s one of the reasons I’m loving these new pillows from Ferm-Living!
I’m loving these fun little clothespin bags with coordinating clothespins. As a newly minted clothesline user (our dryer was out of commission recently) I’m already enjoying the benefits of hanging laundry outdoors to dry: eco-friendly, easy and fun (my three year old daughter and I both have our own sections in which to hang and we both agree it’s FUN to do), and helpful on the electric bill. These adorable bags and pins will certainly take our laundry experience to a whole new level and will make sweet little gifts for friends.
As the heat of summer looms ahead, I always love to brighten up the interiors with some fresh color and bright designs. Which is why I’m particularly loving these organic cotton and down-filled pastel pillows right now:
The weather is getting warmer and I’m getting excited to play outdoors before the mosquitoes take up residence. Luckily, Houzz has a timely post or two to help. I loved the idea of this brightly painted wall to accent the outdoor dining or sitting area.
