It’s been awhile since I shared a Friday Finds post on the blog. I don’t post about fashion much but lately I have been really inspired to overhaul my entire closet! I don’t what has gotten into me, but I have been in the mood to simplify lately and to start purchasing pieces that I truly love. First, I spent a couple hours in the afternoon going through my closet and assessing what was in that deep dark hole. I spend so much time in workout shorts and t-shirts that I rarely venture into my actual closet for anything to wear.
I have been loving all of the inspiration I’ve been seeing lately featuring purely neutral interiors. Dark and mid tone woods, greys, blacks, and whites with lots of indoor plants for added color. Sounds like the perfect space to me! To make it better, I’ve rounded up a collection of one of my favorite spaces in the house. . . besides the bedroom, of course! Any area of the home that encourages you to eat more is my kind of space 🙂 For all my neutral lovers out there, this post is for you!
With the release of Rebecca Atwood’s new book Living with Pattern: Color, Texture, and Print at Home, its about time we all got a refresher of inspiration for adding pattern into our lives! In her book, Rebecca describes a space that is layered with patterns and says, “The trick no one tells you is that there is no formula. You just need to keep your eyes open and get specific about what you really love.” The true guide to a space that is uniquely yours is simply discovering what you like and sticking to it. “You don’t need to be a designer—but you do need to learn what you like,” which as most of us know can be difficult when we are surrounded by so much inspiration of other people’s preferences. We can begin to think we like something that we actually don’t because it is currently trending or our friend likes it.
We have made it to the end of another long week and all I want to do is relax! I spent some downtime browsing Pinterest inspiration and stumbled upon this GORGEOUS mountain home by Studio McGee Interiors and I think I’m obsessed. This is not the first time I have fallen in love with one of their creations either! If you don’t follow this team you definitely should! Syd, her husband, and their team are a bunch of extremely talented designers who know how to perfectly mix and match textures and tones to create stunning interiors that make your jaw drop. If you don’t believe me, take a look!
Do you ever feel like you need a break from life? Like you just want to put a pause on everything that is currently spinning around you and just relax? Trust me I feel ya! Lately Tim and I have been making plans for some fun upcoming travels and I am so excited for them. Some aren’t for a year, but just the idea of getting away and experiencing new cultures makes me excited. There is just something about it. . . .
When it comes to traveling, I am not much for a short list. I’m kind of surprised Tim hasn’t lost his patience with me yet. I have lists upon lists of places I want to go and things I want to see while we are there that it doesn’t even seem possible to cram it into this lifetime! A girl can dream though, right? I thought I would do us both a favor and spill my top travel destinations with you guys! So here goes nothing!
