Is it really Tuesday already??
I hope you all enjoyed the long weekend. Jordan was out of town, so I did a little exploring – I finally made my way to a fantastic shop a friend had recommended a while back – and what a treat! The whole place is full of handmade and/or salvaged pieces and has inspiration bursting out the windows (it’s called Lucky Junk in Arlington Heights for any of you in Chicagoland – I highly recommend stopping in). I also made a visit to one of my favorite antiques stores and found some new treasures. Everything was 20% off – you know I couldn’t walk out of there empty handed! 🙂 Sadly, we had a little rain Sunday morning and so I didn’t make it to the flea market like I wanted, but there’s always next week!
I also grabbed a few new pillows in anticipation of the arrival of our new sofa. I’m going to give this deep blue thing a try – I love it when I see it in pictures, so we’ll see if I can depart from my comforting neutrals for a change. 🙂
I spent the remainder of the weekend around the house, cleaning and sorting, and even started a couple of new projects. Hopefully I’ll have something to share with you soon.
This week I went back through my Pinterest boards and found pictures of spaces accented by the beautiful blue that keeps catching my eye. Let’s see what you think…
Isn’t that dining room with the window seat and built-ins gorgeous? Makes me want to do something like that in our dining room – if our room was a little bigger I’d probably seriously consider it. And those hanging lanterns….! So pretty. 🙂
I’m thinking something along the lines of the image of the white sofa with the woven trunk for our living room – a little bit of blue and lots of natural texture. What do you think of the blue? Share with me below!
Have a wonderful week!!
