Tea Party Tuesday

 

Sipping tea is so underrated! I’ve been itching to host a small tea party lately with a few lovely ladies and as I’m doing research on what to provide, I came across these adorable Tea Party Requisites I just had to share:::

5 Living Room Inspirations

1. Not only am I nerding out over navy blue lately, but palm tree leaves have never looked better. I love this room because of all the vibrant colors being used.

2. Fig tree’s are having a major moment and I can’t wait to get my hands on one! The juxtaposition of the outdoor tree and the preppy striped rug give me butterflies!

3. If you’re working with a tight space it’s a great idea to invest in a cool light fixture to draw the eyes up.

4. A cozy chic living room warms my heart and I think the quickest way to achieving this is with floor pillows.

5. It’s clean, sharp and an easy style to snag with a simple zig zag pillow. Because trends come and go so quickly I would suggest in getting the look with a pillow rather than investing in a larger ticketed item such as a sofa or rug.

Animal Prints

Do I ever do this? {the answer is no} But when I come across something on Pinterest that makes me smile this much, I just have to share the fun with my readers! I’ve been cheating on fashion with art & interior decorating my studio space and spotted these adorably unique animal prints from The Animal Print Shop by Sharon Montrose. My first order of business on Monday is to order one for my office wall {but which one!? it’s soooo hard to pick!}. And don’t even get me started on how cute these would look in a baby room {don’t get any ideas!}.

Know what I love most about these swoon worthy works? The animals photographed for the series are real live animals, raised (and most rescued) & through the artists work, she helps support several organizations devoted to animal rescue, educational programs, and nurturing wildlife.

Doesn’t get much better than that!

Wall of Frames

I’ll be the first to admit that absolutely hate spending money on things like curtains and {wait for it} picture frames! But when it came time to revamp my studio, the first order of business was to get my wacky wall in order. Currently, I have an array of mismatched frames, a chalkboard and few other loose screws. If you’re going to do the mismatched look you have to really commit and have enough variety to make a full statement. I wasn’t really feeling like my wall was mismatched enough and because the majority of my frames are white, I decided to commit to an all white framed wall look. Here are a few pieces I’m lusting over to fill up the empty frames.

I’ll be sure to post before/after pictures of my wall of frames once it’s done – wish me luck!
