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?
