Monday Musings

Mondays can be a real bummer; especially after a really wonderful weekend like the past one.  Two of my nearest & dearest friends from school came to visit Birmingham, and then we went to the farm with my family. It was so wonderful- the weather, the place, the people, the food.. it was top notch. More on that (& some pictures) later on this week! But for today, lets revisit this beautiful project by one of my favorites - Erika Powell.  Learn more about her business (& read her adorable blog!) at  I love all the neutrals plus the pops of colors - green & yellow.  The finished project is organic and loose but at the same time so simple & polished.  A+

CB2 for the win!

One of my favorite parts of my job is that I'm always discovering new product from all sorts of sources- both low and high end.  My favorite is when I find items in a source that I might have previously ignored. For example, CB2. CB2 is great.  CB2 is one of those things that I use to throw away along with the whole stack of catalogs... but look what I have been missing!! CB2 is full of great items -- all with clean lines, good colors (neutral to the perfect chartreuse), interesting designs.  Literally, CB2 for the win. I think many of these items would easily be mistaken for being worth a lot more $$$ then they really are.  I highly suggest y'all browsing through their easy to use website. Below is a collection of my favorite couple of items from CB2.

blog redo: lulu & lala

I was thinking about renaming this little blog of mine, when it hit me or rather it jumped on me... my dog that is! Meet "lulu & lala": a smart but silly german shepard & a spunky but sweet lab. I decided "lulu & lala" is the perfect name for a blog about home because for me, my dogs are home or rather they represent home for me. Lulu & lala are the keepers of my home. when i open the door everyday, they are my "welcome home" committee. they represent the things that I love about home the most: being comfortable, cozy, casual, & happy. This will be a blog about all things home: design and all its components [lighting, furniture, art, accessories], art, cooking, family, holidays, celebrations, and more. and of course, there will be more than enough stories about these two precious pups along the way....   I hope you follow along!
