They have been popping up in all sorts of interiors including dining rooms, kitchens and even nursery rooms (like this adorable one above). I’m referring to the woven lighting trend and I’m loving it. From rattan to rope, cane to basket – the organic material gives a textured, earthy touch to any space.

I’ve been sourcing a few woven pendants and chandeliers that could work in our family room / great room area. Because I’ve selected brass lighting fixtures for the kitchen and dining space, I wanted something different for the the family room area. I’ve been eyeing woven options for a while and narrowed down some of my favorites for you today.

Book Review :: Home Decor Cheat Sheets

How high should you hang a chandelier hang above the dining table? What paint finish should you use a kid’s room? What size rug should go under your bed? When it comes to decorating the questions can be endless, but there are definitely some design dos and don’ts I adhere to. Some of these “rules” are easy to remember, but it’s always nice to have a cheat sheet or illustration to reference. Over time I have pinned, cut-out and dogeared pages in decor books, but have never had one single source. So I was thrilled to receive a copy of a newly released book, Home Decor Cheat Sheets by Jessica Probus that contains 300+ colorful, easy-to-understand images aimed at teaching you everything from furniture placement to bathroom lighting tricks, window styles to  how to make a floor plan. I’m loving the practical nature of this book and is a resource I’m looking forward to using for years to come. Decor lovers, you are going to want a copy of this helpful book. It would also make a perfect housewarming gift!

Just like the completion of any home, the cheat sheets in this book are meant to be used as a process not to be tackled in one day or even one year, but consulted as needed over time to make the kind of slow, purposeful improvements that turn a few walls and some well-hung curtains into an actual home. – Jessica Probus, Author of Home Decor Cheat Sheets

New Kitchen Inspiration

As many of you know, we purchased a 1940s colonial style fixer upper. We’ve tackled several rooms already including the foyer and master bath. Our next big project is renovating a retro kitchen and opening up several smaller rooms to create an open great room. Over the last several months we’ve been to finalizing the plan and obtaining the building permit. Now we are demoing the space, so there is no going back!

I’d like the kitchen to feel light, modern with natural elements. Here are a few kitchens that I’m drawn to and have helped me hone in on what we want.
