artist // lara harwood

February 29, 2012

seriously inspired by the endlessly gorgeous portfolio of artist lara harwood on so many levels.

how about these two beauties framed and stacked on my wall over a console?

or how about any one (or all) of these watercolor marvels?

 and how cute would a grid of these be for a kid's room??

so much more goodness on lara's site.

sometimes, all i want to do is go back to being a student so i can blue sky and create awesome packaging like this all day.

student olga gaze did a phenomenal job on this wine offering.
would you not pick that up on the double??

and by that i mean, doesn't everyone buy at least two bottles at a time? :)

the ones that got away, part 2

February 27, 2012

i finally feel like i'm in a place to stop looking so much and start buying. furniture, that is. i have quite a talent for buying any and all unnecessary accessories that i come in contact with. what i need to be doing is saving for the wallet gaugers like rugs and furniture.

unfortunately, when i went back for some of these, they'd already been snatched up. c'est la vie.

wants to be painted and be souped up with some new hardware.
wish we needed it because it was a good deal. would be cool to see it transform.

practically RAN over to this when i saw it, but was disappointed in the quality.

loved this painting (jenny could do this for you).
the vignette was kinda cute, i thought.

delicious french chairs.
can we please talk about the frog planter?

still thinking about this for G's room. i want a desk as one of her side tables. the gold leaf detail stole me heart.
would look good with a victoria ghost chair, wouldn't it?

cool bed. great price.
i don't think G likes the idea of a poster bed, though.

$40! i need to open an etsy shop.

surprisingly awesome in person. super deep and comfy.


aren't these popular? you could campaign that up in no time.

would you believe these are still there?!?!!
does that mean they want to come home with me?

already in a great fabric. score!
no pillow, please.

i measured this twice, i wanted it to work so badly. alas, it's too big for where i need it to go.

would make for a fun and pretty easy DIY. super cheap.

I DIE FOR THIS!!!! very KW, no?
i want it reeeeeeeally bad, but the only place i can think for it to go is the family room.
and mama doesn't need any more full upholstered anything in there.
i almost want to get it just to see eric's face. haha!

love these for our master bedside tables.

hellooooooo, lover.

this got my attention the first time, but i wasn't as impressed when i went back.
bistro tabletop turned wall art.

i can't seem to get into foo dogs, but couldn't overlook this display.

and because every household has one:

if you missed the first edition of things that got away, here you go.

also, you can find me over at buckets and bunches today, filling in for an almost-married Chelsea. i'm talking about one of my design home bases, modern earthy glam.

happy monday, peeps!

quiet sunday afternoon

playing around with the camera.

isn't she the sweetest thing you've ever seen?

hope you are having a wonderful weekend!

and i don't usually go for red.

the dining room is nothing to scoff at either.

someone has an awesome husband

February 23, 2012

before the holiday gets too far gone, i have to give my mr. some serious props for how adorable he was last week. a certain (joking) demanding someone declared that she wanted an ombre layer cake for valentine's day instead of flowers or any kind of gift this year (we don't generally do gifts for v-day anyway).

i think we can all agree that was a solid request, no?

much to my surprise and total delight, the man came through in spades.

he made that shiz.
that's edible gold glitter in the glaze, friends.

seriously. if you guys knew my husband, you would know that this is confirmation that he can do absolutely anything.

unfortunately for him, this means his honey-do list just got longer.
gentlemen, that's what happens when you give in to your lady's whims.

and, yes, i'm dedicating an entire post to my sweet husband and his cake skillz.

a little time away is awesome

February 22, 2012

hi, friends! sorry to leave you with nothing new these last few days. i've been hard at work on some projects. G's room is finished in all of its kalamata olive splendor. it was looking a little on the cool side at first (which is weird since it's the brownest purple ever), but i think once we get more furniture, art and proper lighting in there, it will be a real stunna. she was here this weekend and seemed really excited about the new diggs! if the kid's happy, i'm happy.

this week, i'm in the middle of addressing some very cool wedding invites (white ink on metallic gunmetal gray envelopes anyone?). they're looking good so far!

i've failed to mention some guest appearances that i've made in the last few weeks, so i'm sending you off this lovely wednesday to soak them up in all of their glory.

anna of canoe design asked me to participate in her favorite furniture friday series, and i was having a moment with fanciful headboards that might be worth a peek.

jessica of the eagle's nest had me by shortly after her little man was born, so i thought i'd discuss something i know absolutely nothing about; kid stuff and nurseries! how'd i do?

apartment therapy, (previous) home of erin from design crisis

and, as if that weren't enough, yesterday i was over at veranda interiors for melissa's new in ten series (while she is sunbathing on the beaches of hawaii, poor thing) talking dining rooms. something i also apparently know nothing about, as ours is still completely empty.

back tomorrow, ya'll.
