Bulls and Beaches

I’ve mentioned artist Teil Duncan {here and here} before and now she is back with a few, new prints! I’ve always been a fan of her beaches and have a print myself, this time around I’m picking up a bull print! Such a unique take on the animal! Her prints go fast and these are only available until December.

A Big Easy Welcome

In New Orleans? RUN, don’t walk to the brand new West Elm on Magazine St. I’ve been watching the progress on the store since the beginning and can’t believe its doors open tomorrow! We’ve needed this in New Orleans for quite sometime now. The unique merchandise selection and the affordable price point makes West Elm a perfect fit for the city! I’ve got my eye on this lamp and this super cute gold tray. Also, newly engaged? West Elm now has a wedding registry!!

I constantly stalk home interiors. Saving {and pinning} ideas for the home I hope to own one day. I’ve been eyeing the Eames chairs for quite sometime and have been seeing them all over lately. The design is sleek and they can pretty much go in any room in the home.

Clean Lines

I went on a major cleaning spree this past week. Organizing and de-cluttering my entire apartment and have found myself drawn to clean lines. This handbag and this wine rack are two finds this week that demonstrate just that. The wine rack is just $16.99!

Pillow Party

My favorite way to brighten up my house is to change-up the throw pillows. So simple, yet a real difference maker. I made a trip to H&M this weekend with my mom and scooped up several summer styles. If you are ever in New Orleans, I highly recommend checking out the home section of H&M, lots of fun, inexpensive items for your home. You can shop online too! The pillow covers start at just $5.95!

Take Me Home

To Zara Home that is. I checked out Zara Home awhile back and to be honest it fell off my radar. Today I stumbled upon their new collections and lets just say I spent way too much time browsing all the goodies on their site. I love the blues and whites, and all the options they have. Majority of the items are under $100 too! How perfect does that bed look?! In the market for the little ones? They have a wonderful kids home section as well!

chalk paint

To be honest, I wasn’t planning on putting this on the blog {please ignore the crappy pics}, but when something is SO easy and the results are better than imagined, I feel like it’s a no brainer to share. I scooped up this end table from an antique market here in New Orleans a while back, and a few years later the table still battered and bruised.

I’ve heard a lot about Annie Sloan Chalk Paint {it’s not for chalk, so don’t let the name fool you}, and really wanted to know, is it as easy as they say? I tried my own hand at it, and let me tell you, it’s easier than I had ever dreamed. No sanding, no priming, just two coats of paint, a little dry time in between and I was done. The paint is pricey, but really goes a long way. I chose the original color and after I finished this table I went on and did my headboard {seen in the after photo below} and I still have paint left in the can. Only thing I would do different, and I still may do, is finish the table with the lacquer {they say it helps protect from water}. I still can’t get over the ease of painting and the fact all those old stains were fully covered.

not just for teens

You never know where you will find inspiration, my latest find comes by way of PBteen! Yes, TEEN, don’t let that word fool you, Emily + Meritt have chosen some amazing pieces for their collection with the brand. So whimsical and fun! The beds and the bedding are so dreamy, I want to redo my bedroom stat!

basic but bold

What a week! I could not be more excited that today is Friday. My internet is finally back up and running at home and I am looking forward to a low-key weekend, that may include a little shopping, of course. I have been on the hunt for a few new pieces for my living room and I love these black and white pillows from Ikea. A great basic, yet makes a bold statement. How fun are these other black and white items for the home?!
