Fallen in Love with Fabric

I'm just loving this fabric by Quadrille, the pink and orange together are just so beautiful. I don't think I've loved a fabric this much since Chiang Mai Dragon.

Apparently, I am not alone in my love as Mary McDonald designed a bedroom with it in June's House Beautiful.

Eddie Ross also loves it!   

How gorgeous is this table he designed? I don't I have been this in love with a table scape all year!! And, the pink faux bamboo chairs! LOVE.

Gold Sharpie Does Wonders!

I saw this on the over at Full House. I just about died!!

Would you believe me if I told you that wall is a stencil filled in with Gold Sharpie? It is soo gorgeous! Can you imagine the patience that would go into this? I'd ask my hubby to take it on with me but I think I love him too much to risk that one :)

Beachy Keen Part Two!

I posted about Manhattan Beach designer Jill Johnson here last March.

I loved her work so much, and I decided pop over to Waterleaf Interiors website to see what other gems there were, and looky what I found! I love her style! A mix of laid back beachy, yet sophisticated and slightly glamorous!

Lets hear it for the Boys!

I've always been a fan of the little guys! They truly capture my heart, probably because they tend to be a little more sneaky, and naughty than the girls and the inner kid in me loves it!

I hope when ever the time for me to get preggo comes that I get blessed with a boy, and if i do you better believe I will be inspired by these adorable boy rooms:

On a side note, I hope everyone had a fabulous Fathers day! Posting might be slightly light this week as I'm working away like a mad woman on my business plan for Serendipity Interiors. Pictures of my home are going to be taken next weekend for my portfolio! I can't wait to share them with you and I hope you will enjoy our humble abode.
