So, dear readers, after a couple of days of frustration trying to finish my last two dream room ideas, I decided to share some recent discoveries from the past week or so. Cause my rooms just aren’t coming together…

First up: Posters!

From top to bottom:

Happy post(er)ing, people!

One day my bedroom will look this good…

Inspired by this bedroom (which I found out, after drooling over it for awhile, was designed by Miles Redd)… some pretty things I’d like to have for my dream bedroom.

Farrow & Ball – The Lotus Papers wallpaper
Carini Lang – Mums silk rug
Anthropologie – Italian Campaign canopy bed
John Reeves – Louis Side tables
West Elm – Fluted Glass Lamps (in the iridescent grey color with custom shades)
Atmosphere print – JKLDesign (@Etsy)
Viviana print – Sandra Suy on (@Etsy)
Manon Lescaut bust

Still on the lookout for the perfect bedding, though I’m a fan of Dwell Studio, Thomas O’Brien for Target, and, occasionally, Anthropologie’s bed linens… I need ideas for a cool lamp shade fabric too. Have you got any suggestions for my pink, grey, and silver dream room?

No more InStyle Home.

NEET
Look for the NEET Homes links on this fashion/craft blog/zine.

Up top… one of my favorite rooms ever, designed by Miles Redd.

Pretty things.

Surfing around the net I found some things I’d love to see in my house…

The beautiful blue bottle glass hanging pendants would be great in the kitchen or dining room.

Love Amy Butler’s rug for the living room. I could see my now pea green sofa with new off white linen upholstery sitting next to John Reeves’ chic Louis side tables. Don’t they look like stilettos?

Love the oversize poppy print bedding and the Moroccan inspired headboard both from West Elm. I actually think the bedding would be great as a shower curtain. The head board (and the narrow leg bedframe) would be treated with a satin finish neutral gray and dressed with something fancier. Haven’t found the bedding yet. The search continues!

Advance.

I was surfing the web the other day looking for vintage sewing patterns and I came across this Wiki. There was a plethora of vintage pattern information there including quite a healthy showing of patterns by a company I never heard of: Advance Pattern Co.

Check out the wiki for more info on Advance… and for tons of pattern envelope art for inspiration.

Sunset on a beautiful day…

I spent the entire day with my family today. We barbecued, talked, laughed, and had a great time with each other.

The miracle of it is that it’s the first time in well over a decade since all of my cousins have been together in one place. How wonderful for us all to finally come together!

We’ve packed up everything and everyone has gone home but we all promised not to go so long without seeing each other.

I call that a blessed day.
