Summer has arrived … well, not officially yet, but in spirit. The season’s relaxed style is a favorite. Today I’ve round-up a few super chic items for summer that I think you’ll love too. Aren’t the fringe sandals the best!?

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.

One Room Challenge Spring 2016 :: Favorites

The last few weeks have been a bit of a blur. My kids are wrapping up their school year, we have started demoing the kitchen/great room and I’ve starting taking training classes for our puppy (see image below). I’m also quite relieved that the One Room Challenge Spring 2016 edition is complete. The experience was so much fun, yet exhausting. I’m so thankful to have worked with Linda from Calling it Home who created it all and with the generous event sponsors including, allmodernbassett mirrorbellacorcaroline cecil textilescrystoramadecoratorsbestfarrow & balljoss & mainloweslucent light shopluxholdupsminted.comwaiting on martha, and  waterworks.

A huge thank you to you. I’m overwhelmed by the supportive and loving comments, emails, and thumbs up you’ve sent my way. Many thanks!!!

Did you have an opportunity to check out the other 19 bloggers that participated in the challenge? Again, I was blown away by the talent and gorgeous designs. Here are a few of my favorite ORC transformations…

laundry room // the zhush

Who wouldn’t enjoy doing laundry in this space designed by Sue De Chiara of the The Zhush? My favorite design detail is the fabulous Nuvolette wallpaper by Cole and Sons. Perfection.

Claire Brody transformed her living room using layers of neutrals. Isn’t it inviting? Love.

Modern, organized and chic – the new office space for the Waiting On Martha team is a fave.

The guest suite by pencil and paper blog is one I’d love in my own home. I adore the blush pink walls and chinoiserie touches.

How sweet is this pink bedroom the Nicole from Sketch 42 designed for her sister? Loving the skirted table in Miles Redd fabric.

colorful den // the pink clutch // one room challenge

Paige Minear of The Pink Clutch transformed her already beautiful den into a colorful oasis. There is so much eye candy in this space from the wallpapered bookcases to the gorgeous upholstery. Love all of the layers.

San Francisco Decorator Showcase :: Cheerful Girls Bedroom

Another room that caught my eye in this year’s San Francisco Decorator Showcase is the cheerful girl’s bedroom by Annie Lowengart of Ann Lowengart Interiors. “Smoll’s Room Redux” is a modern twist on the designer’s sister’s childhood bedroom. Lowengart takes a classic pink and orange color combination and adds a contemporary, chic twist using playful patterns and unexpected accent colors. However, the modern brass chandelier and colorful, geometric ceiling wallpaper (from the Flavor Paper) steals the show. I’m completely smitten with this bedroom as any little girl would be too!
