Happy Friday + Links 6/2/17
Happy Friday and welcome to June! Goodness it feels to be here. On the back end of all that cold and snow, and with nothing but sunny skies and fresh veggies (and a baby!!!) in our foreseeable future. Howdy summer, we're happy to have you!
Before I get to this week's links, I have to tell you about my new design crush, Lauren Liess. Her style is simple, beautiful, and natural and I want to live in every room she designs (like that kitchen!...swoon). Lauren isn't exactly new on the design scene, but somehow I've been totally oblivious to her work my entire life. Thankfully a kind Instagram follower pointed out that Helen Norman (as in Helen of the beautiful farmhouse we featured here on the blog a couple of weeks back) photographs for Lauren and I quickly found myself on Lauren's Instagram, spending way too much time ogling her work! I wouldn't recommend following that link unless you have at least 2 hours to kill ;)
Well it's Friday again, so grab a cup of coffee and dig into all that the internet has to offer:
I finally pulled the trigger on these office chairs for our home office since they were 25% off this week (sadly, I think the discount code ended last night). They're on backorder and won't arrive until July, but I still can't wait!
My Amazon wish list is now topped by...surprise, surprise...Lauren Liess' book, Habitat: the Field Guide to Decorating. Side note: that bedroom! Those textiles!
Flush mounts...ugh. It's so hard to find good ones, but thankfully Studio McGee put together this roundup!
I'm still thinking about a rug for the Farmhouse entryway. I've resolved myself to an indoor/outdoor rug because we have kids and a dog and I really don't want to constantly worry about dirt (because it's inevitable). I have my eye on this one and this one but I'm not sold on the whole recycled plastic thing. Anyone have experience with one of these rugs? I sure love the whole clean-it-off-with-a-hose thing but I always prefer natural materials.
I can't read a word of this country home tour (are they in Sweden?) but the pictures are stunning! That bathroom linen cabinet is perfection.
Planning to try out this hummus recipe this weekend. I'm always on the hunt for healthy recipes my kids will eat too.
Hope you have a great weekend!
