Serena & Lily Does it Again

I finally sat down last night to browse the new Serena and Lily catalog.  I must admit, while I love the store, I don’t usually flag a ton of pages because I think their price point can be a bit high, but last night my catalog looked like this:

And while yes, their price point on many items is still high (I don’t mean outrageously high for a home but maybe high for a home with three young kids!)–I couldn’t resist sharing some of the items I love and wish I had unlimited resources to buy.

Love, love this raffia side table–it can be a bit beachy or modern.  It also comes in a coffee table.  Would love to see it in a child’s room or nursery.

Oh, how I wish I was in the market for a new headboard.  This also comes in white and would be adorable in a girl’s bedroom.

This side table would great next to a bed.  It has a slide out top–for when you need the extra space.

Love this side table and it’s sleek design.  Perfect for small spaces when you just need a spot to set down a drink.

Finally, a shower curtain that can be playful enough for a kid’s bathroom but not look too juvenile when it turns into the guest bathroom.

curatins

Perfect accessory for your mantel, dining room table or buffet.  Love that brass!

While I marked lots of items I would love to buy, I also marked so many pages that had beautiful rooms.  I was so happy to see lots of light wood tones making their comeback. The cafe chairs paired with a casual, clean line table works so well together.

Love the dark wall color with a light wood tone bookshelf.  It’s the metal and leather details that make me love this clean-lined bookshelf.

How pretty is this serene bedroom?  Makes me want to change the dark walls in my own bedroom.  The overall neutral color palette is soothing and my favorite thing about this room is that brass triple sconce!  I’m a believer that every bedroom should have sconces…get rid of those table lamps and free up space on your nightstand!

These days people tend to shy away from pink in a nursery but these horizontal stripes doesn’t make the room feel too pink.  And of course, the bubble gum color artwork keeps it playful and fun!  Don’t be afraid to use different tones of the same color in a room.

 Adore this bedding for a little boy.  I’m a sucker for seersucker!

Home Depot Lighting

While I definitely like Home Depot for my basic house needs I don’t consider them a great resource for products with good design–that is until now!  While searching online for some lighting, I found their ZUO line with has great design with a small price tag.


1. ZUO Amethyst
//2. ZUO Bronze //3.ZUO Sapphire//4.ZUO Cassius//5.Alpha Floor Lamp//6.ZUO Bradyon//7.ZUO Cascade

1.  Perfect light fixture for an entryway!  The bronze finish keeps it from looking too modern so that would blend in with traditional decor as well.

2.  I’ve been trying to figure out where I could incorporate this pendant light into my home–LOVE it!  I think it would be great in a kids bathroom and I could even see two of these over a rustic wood dining room table.

3.  This pendant has been one of my favorites for a long time.  It comes in two sizes and a nickel finish.  Would love to see the nickel finish in my office area and I think Tessa should put the bronze finish in her entryway. Now we just have to convince our husbands to let us change our light fixtures AGAIN.

4.  This one is a steal at 50.00!  Could look great in a girl’s nursery or bathroom or even over a huge soaking bathtub!

5.  While this is not a pendant light, I couldn’t help but include such a nice looking floor lamp.

6.  This is by far my favorite find at Home Depot.  Large enough in scale to be placed over a dining room table in a more formal setting or  I would love to see it over a rustic wood table.

7.  Everyone needs a little bling in their house!

I will definitely consider Home Depot one of my go-to stores from now on.  Happy Shopping!

Ikea Shopping

A week ago, I made myself a cup of coffee, sat down to read through my blog roll and opened up my computer to this:

Amy’s Computer-Sign of Death

The geniuses at Apple confirmed just what I had suspected….HARD DRIVE FAILURE!  Lucky for me, I’m extra cautious and had everything backed up on an external hard drive (I store this in a fire/water proof safe) and I also use Crash Plan which is an online back up system.  So, while I was sad to say goodbye to my white macbook.  I didn’t sweat it too much because I knew I would be up and running in no time.  However, it didn’t go as planned and I had to wait 5 days to get my new computer.  So, what do you do without a computer?

Shopping, of course!

My mom and sister-in-law were in town for a few days and they made sure I put an Ikea trip on our agenda.  Like always, I was giddy with joy when I saw a few new things.

 This table was beautiful with a walnut veneer top and solid ash legs.  It looked very high end and would look great with any type  of dining room chair.

Stockholm Table

These light fixtures were adorable and would be great in a kids room, playroom or the black/gold one in a dining room.photo-7

 A great solution for kid’s shoe storage and bench by the door.  This little bench comes in a variety of colors.

 Still one of my favorite chairs! Now it has a matching ottoman.

Tessa and I love the Expedit system and now it comes in a high-gloss finish and a ton of different colors including, this hot pink!

These green bins caught my eye when I noticed the price of 1.49!

 Love this bedding for a boy’s room.

 Such cute bedding for a girl’s room if you are trying to steer away from the usual pink.

 A pillow to match or I think this would be a great pop of color in a living room.

My favorite desk from Ikea now comes in two different lengths.

 This bath hand towel was just so cheery looking that I couldn’t resist snapping a photo.

 Still, my favorite item EVER from Ikea.  These drying racks can mounted on a wall and fold flat when not in use.

 And, my adorable sister-in-law holding up a coffee cup for my brother, an avid hunter.

Enjoy the weekend and we will see you back here on Monday!
