Sectional Love…

For years, Travis has fantasized about having a living room with a comfy sectional, big enough for snuggling and afternoon naps.  One of the major downsides of living in tiny SF apartments is that our living rooms require smaller-than-normal furniture.  In our new place, this is not the case!

Not only do we have room for the sectional we’ve always wanted, but we have a fireplace to place it in front of!  I’ve been daydreaming nonstop about quiet, cozy evenings in front of the fire… it’s making the un-fun parts of moving (read: packing) totally worth it.

Now we just have to find the perfect couch.  I’m discovering that it can be a struggle to find a sectional that’s not too contemporary-looking.  Check out some of my living room inspiration…

Are you a fan of sectionals?  Do you dream of having a big, comfy couch?  Are there any other items on your future home wish list?  (I can’t wait for in-home laundry!)

Have a Summery Weekend!

I’m so excited that it’s OFFICIALLY summer!  Trav and I are kicking off the season right with a weekend full of multiple concerts and visits with friends :)  Plus, this weekend is pride in SF, so the energy of the city will be extra-awesome!  But first, let’s check out some fun posts from around the web…

The most beautiful baby shower of all time.

Hilarious photos of people on roller coasters.

A pretty updo for girls with bangs.

Love this summery dress!

Nautical nails.

Which dry shampoo is right for you?

How to make a cute, affordable cake stand.

I’m loving this bracelet from Forever 21!

Have a Splendid Weekend!

Hooray, it’s Friday!  I can’t wait to officially get this weekend started.  Saturday will be busy busy busy (I’m doing hair and makeup for a wedding, then going to a work party for Travis) and Sunday will be lazy lazy lazy, just like Sundays should be :)  It’s supposed to be a beautiful weekend… I’m hoping to spend lots of time outside in the sun!

Let’s kick this weekend off with some fun posts from around the web…

I’m obsessed with these bowls!

Baked egg boats… yummm.

Wouldn’t this ombre dresser be cute for a nursery?

I love everything about these nails.

Favorite color of the moment: mint.

Are any of you brave enough to try bronze eyeshadow?

This dress is on my summer wish list!

An ode to top knots.

An open letter to all parents from a non-parent.

Clever French art.

These little girls are SO talented!

And a few {bb} posts you might have missed…

Are you afraid to go grey?

DIY Throw Pillows

I’ve recently gotten this renewed sense of energy to finish decorating our apartment.  Shortly after we moved in, we realized that this wouldn’t be a super permanent place for us.  So, I lost a little of the oomph it takes to complete the look of the place.  But now that I mainly work from home, I realized that it’s important for me to feel stimulated in my environment.

So, I’ve been spending my weekends on fun decor projects!  A couple weeks ago I made these reversible throw pillows…


I love the fun prints— they keep me feeling perky all day long.

Have you ever made throw pillows for your home?  Isn’t it amazing how such a small detail can update an entire room?  Got any other decor projects you’ve been working on?  Please share in the comments!

Have a Great Weekend (Let’s Be Friends on Pinterest!)

Happy Friday, my sweets!  What are you up to this weekend?  I’m pretty excited to be doing hair for a six year old’s birthday party on Saturday!  Her mom hired me to create a girly day for her and her friends— I’m putting rainbow colored feather extensions in their hair, painting their nails with glittery polish, and braiding their sweet little locks.  Sometimes I just love being a freelance hairstylist :)

I want to kick off this weekend with some images that will hopefully inspire you to make the most of your days off.  If you want to check out all of my pinboards you can do so here!

I have an entire board just for cool and creative photos, like this beautiful underwater shot.

The interior design inspiration is one of my favorite parts of Pinterest.

Of course, much of my nail and hair ideas come from other creative beauty lovers.

And I LOVE all the DIY project ideas!

Of course, I also have boards for fashion, food, fun party ideas, and more.  Isn’t Pinterest seriously addicting?  Have a good weekend, my loves.

What are you up to this weekend?  Any fun plans to share?  Are you as into Pinterest as I am?  Comment with your user name so I can follow you!
