Now that we have the lovely teal rug I’ve been coveting, the living room is finally feeling like it’s coming together, and my focus is shifting to creating the perfect cozy space for the bedroom. We upgraded our mattress to a Westin Heavenly Bed during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale this summer, but haven’t yet bought a bed frame. A fabric covered headboard is at the top of my list, with heavy drapes for the windows to keep out the cold; greys mixed with dark walls and bold accessories.
Here’s a little visual inspiration:

We’re renting right now but once we’re ready to buy, I know one thing I want is a big kitchen with a million useful things filling it up. Chalkboard walls covered in notes and recipes, pots and pans hung up for all to see, big windows to cook by the light of day, and all my silly little tools organized in all the cupboard space a cook could dream of.

What do you dream of?
Now that winter is upon us, I’m starting to nest even more than usual. And spending more evenings burying myself in a book. As our collection grows and grows, we’re going to need a little more shelving to hold it all. Hopefully something like these!

I hope you had a lovely and safe 4th! We BBQ’d with new friends in the afternoon and had a relaxing night in. Back to work today, but so nice that it’s already the weekend! xoxo.
A little link love from the week:
Obsessed with these pumps, the top of my birthday wish list
Genius and indulgent popsicle recipes
Should be our house motto (p.s. – turn down the volume first)
A great remix, because girls deserve more
On my list of to-do‘s
I want to put this sauce on everything
Makes me laugh and never want to open my mouth again
Every house needs a statement chair
Rose gold imperfection perfection
Counting down to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale…

Who doesn’t need a little handmade in their home? I don’t do much crafting myself, but I love these sweet and silly cross stitch pieces from Ruggles Made. Adorable!

The long awaited return of Shanna Murray is here! I fell in love with her gorgeous hand made pieces long ago. The wall decals, downloadable art and giftables in her shop are so lovely. And she even did a few things for West Elm! Her photos and art have been gracing the backdrop of our laptop for months now and these new prize ribbons just in time for Valentine’s Day are the sweetest.
