Dream Home Inspiration: Guest Bedroom

I want my future guest bedrooms to be a fun room. I want it to be bold but still have a bit of the hotel vibe to it. I want my guests to feel like they are on vacation, not staying in just another bedroom. Guest bedrooms are not lived in on a daily basis. I think that gives us a little more liberty to have fun decorating the room.

Have you ever seen such a bedroom in all your life? This beautiful bedroom was designed by Jamie Meares, the mastermind behind the blog, i suwannee and the online shop Furbish Studio.

Book Club: Decorating in Detail Reviews

Decorating in Detail

Before I got this book, I knew very little about Alexa Hampton. I knew her name and I knew she is one of the top designers. I wasn’t very familiar with her work, but now I am determined to be. There’s a reason why she’s known for what she does. She knows what she’s talking about! If you need several more reasons, she has very good taste and she learned from the best: Mark Hampton, her father. I’ll need to read his book written by his wife.

Dream Home Inspiration: Outdoor Retreats

I must have cabin fever worse than I thought. Unless it’s normal to still feel inspired by this gorgeous spring weather. Our apartment complex has a little lake on site. My Australian Shepherd, Taz, and I have started sitting outside on the benches (well, he sits on the ground, but you get the point) more and more lately. Taz definitely enjoys the breeze that usually lingers around the lake, watching the fish jump out and the turtles swimming by. Sometimes we’ll sit on our patio. I got these comfortable chairs from World Market last year when it went on sale. Like the end of summer kind of sale. The link shows a beautiful lagoon blue chair that I wish I had room for. But as it is, I still love the yellow ones I got, which doesn’t seem to be offered this year, but it looks exactly like the lagoon chair. Anyway, we don’t always sit out there because we have a noisy kid in the next building and-I have nothing against kids- that just kind of kills the mood for me, especially if I’m trying to read. It makes me wish even more for a place of my own, where I could create a fantastic outdoor retreat. I have rounded up a few of my favorites. More inspiration.
