{friday finds: a few of my favorite things}

I fell in love with this room the minute I saw it. The colors drew me in, and I keep going back to it, taking in all the details that make this space so lovely. A DIY project that does not look like a DIY project. I also like that this isn’t a huge space. It makes me think, “I can do that.” There was also wishful thinking on my part that my 14 year old daughter would see this room, throw aside the bright green, pink, and black color scheme she had planned for her room. (didn’t work) Allow yourself some time to enjoy Janell Beals’ blog, Isabella & Max Rooms. Guaranteed to spark your creativity.

I saw this amazing space on Twitter a few weeks ago when it was posted by Cupboards On Line. Erin, from House of Turquoise, also fell in love with it back in May. Here is the link to her posting.

This is the winning space in a design competition down in Georgia.


The quilt is what I want. It would be easy to make, but to pull it off, the perfect orange & turquoise fabrics would need to be found.

This used to be a dark and cramped cottage. To see the renovation click on the link below.

What resonates with you? Is it color? Pattern? A certain style? What keeps drawing a person back to anything?

Have a great weekend. My husband is drawing me to the backyard and the leaves.
