New Arrivals Already!

Good God somebody help me! I clicked onto West Elm's website today only to have my breath taken away by some of their new arrivals. So.many.goodies!

For instance:
This understated-ly glamorous settee. Which would then by wonderfully topped off by this embroidered pillow:
Eat it Restoration Hardware. I'd take this sink console over any of your ridiculously overpriced pieces any day. I SO want to replace my powder room pedestal sink with this baby.
AND, West Elm has brought their bath line back. Has anyone else noticed that earlier this year all their towels, shower curtains, and bath mats disappeared off their website? I'll never tire of chevron and what better place than in the bathroom, right?

Then there's always their bedding which has me buying a new duvet or quilt twice (okay maybe three times) a year.

With baby L making an appearance early Spring and concrete design plans in mind for 2011 I won't get to indulge any of these West Elm fantasies, but you better believe I'll be stalking the site for when these get tossed to the sale.
Go's almost as good as a new Lonny edition!

Take a Seat

I very much love the idea of non-traditional seating at a dining table.

Cozy Corner

How wonderful would it be to have a cozy reading corner in your bedroom? Love this!

So over my boring cherry cabinets and light and airy paint colors. I want more navy and some high gloss paint in my house.

Loving all this black trim detail. And check out that awesome stair runner!
I just can't get this image out of my head:

Not sure where I want to do this, but I went ahead and bought this.

Dogs Days

I majored in Biololgy because I thought I wanted to go to vet school. Mostly because I'm so psycho-crazy about dogs. Especially mine:

See? Cuuuuuuuuute.

Which is why I fell in love with Elle Decor's Web feature of canines in interiors. These pictures put a smile on my face today.

Whether it be the couch or a chair, I need a bold piece of furniture in my home.

A New Plan

I can't sleep at night because I have so many new design ideas and projects in mind for our home. Seriously. I can't sleep. And I have this problem where the things I want to do need to be done RIGHTFREAKIN'NOW.

I've already professed my love for window seats here.
But I'm being a bit of a commitment-phobe about building in a window seat. What if I change my mind a few years later? What if it's ugly? What if we try to sell and can't because buyers don't want a stupid window seat in the sunroom?

So then these images got my wheels turning:
A settee! And Ballard offers different sizes for a more custom fit, with upholstery options and even storage benches. It all came together:
This 3-piece settee upholstered in black and one of the benches for storage:
Paired with Ikea's ever popular white tulip table:
Then add two of these oval back Louis chairs upholstered in a punchy green print:
Oh heck yes. I can't stop envisioning it's perfection. Now I need lots of monies.

I've been working hard to grow out my hair, but Scarlet makes me want to chop it all off again.

Soothing White

These rooms prove that white walls are anything but boring. Why am I always so afraid to leave a room white?

Is this not the most perfectly amazing nursery on the planet?
