Today I love "LOVE"


These pretty pillowcases can be purchased from Lush

The above stationary and poster are from Made by Girl

Wall Covering from The Rug Company
I love “Love” things.  It is a good reminder to have throughout the house to remember to love and be loving to others and a reminder to know that I am loved.  One of my favorites is the note cards from Made by Girl (if you don’t read her blog, you should….it is full of color and inspiration) that says, “God is love.”  And that is why I love “Love” the most.  It is a reminder of who and what God is.
The above are a few “love” items that are on my wish list.   I have loved the last one from the Rug Company for a long time and well that one will be most likely be on my wish list forever but it is pretty to look at.
Love to you all!

pillowcase art

I have longed loved these LOVE Pillowcases.  I’ve talked about ordering them and thought of where they might be happiest in my home but I just never got around to it.  But, one lovely reader, Kylie, did [and this is why I love blogging so much].  Kylie read one of my posts and took the plunge and ordered the pillowcases.  And she didn’t even use them as pillowcases.  She framed them as art.  I would have never thought of this.  But isn’t it such a fun idea?  The above pictures are of Kylie’s home.

Sources // Love pillowcases: Reverie Daydream /Lamps: Homegoods / Kilim pillows:  Ebay / Ikat pillow: Etsy / Shag pillow:  Target  / Fur coverlet: Rens- IKEA / Ceiling fixture DIY:  idea from www.parlourhomeblog.com /

[And I bet you are going to ask about the white hanging string things, I did, …Kylie said, “the odd hanging things are just puff ball yarn from Michael’s craft store.  My son wanted our living room to look like it was snowing for Christmas so that’s what I came up with.  I’m thinking they will stay up through the winter at least, we kinda fell for them.”  Fun idea!].  Thanks for sharing, Kylie!

If you are interested in the pillowcases or other great pieces [perfect for Valentines’s Day] click on over to my sweet friend Melissa’s shop, Reverie Daydream.

Do you have a room or project that you think la la Lovely readers would like to see?  I’d love to hear about it!

House Crush : Color

House Crush : Color

I confuse my seasons.  When it’s cold and the ground is covered in white outside, I tend to crave a little color inside.  Maybe it’s my mind remembering summer.  Green grass that cushions and carpets the ground.  Pink petaled flowers that find themselves home to the fairies.  Blue skies that make me believe the ocean is above me.

Today, the ocean sky has gone grey.  All green is frozen in a deep sleep, and a crunchy white snow is sticking to the ground like glue.  This is what I see outside my window.

Inside, I’m crushing on color.  Green Kitchen cabinets, simple sun-flowered velvet pillowcases, resting shoes in a row to make a rainbow.

Color Crush

Yes, nothing says color like a can of paint, but sometimes it is a simple pillowcases and a throw blanket.

Pink Bathroom

If your craving a pop that only paint can provide, why not try trim, or painting the wall at chair rail level or three quarters of the way up?  We did this in our playroom (dining room)  a few years ago and I’m still loving it.

Ikea Hack

If you don’t want to commit color to a wall, how about a cabinet.  I la la love his Ikea hack.

Organizing Shoes

Maybe purchasing or painting isn’t really in the cards, but organizing is, because it’s January and most of us are getting around to some form of re-arranging or re-organizing.  I like the idea of these kind of shoe shelves in a mudroom or closet and grouping the shoes by color.  The color coordination has me thinking of rainbows or at least Skittles.

Hoping your day is filled with sunshine, blue skies, rainbows, or at least pretty pictures of them.

Do you crave color in the winter?

Pretty pink #door

Colored doors, always.  Lately, I seem to be drawn to this “rosey” pink color.  It packs a pretty punch.  I’ve got these pillowcases in my shopping cart, at the moment.  Also, this door is the same color on the outside too.  I love that.

 

Cozy #dress with oversized pockets

This cozy looking sweater dress with oversized pockets, by Free People, has me ready for fall.  It’s definitely on my wish list!

 

Frozen S'mores #yum

While summer may feel technically over, I say s’mores season is not.  I’ve never thought of a frozen s’more before.  But, now that we are aquainted, I’m sure I’ll be thinking about them all the time, until I try one.  Recipe can be found here.

Isn’t that the truth?  Sometimes, we just don’t have the language for things until we are on the other side of them.

la la’s new room

 

Calendar : Julia Kostreva / light : UO / bed : IKEA / pillowcases : UO / Bubble chair : Art Value / Night Light : Etsy / Prints : Etsy / Hardware : Anthropologie / Sheets : Serena & Lily

For Ella’s birthday we are decorating her room, for real.  We have switched rooms a lot in the past year and la la’s room doesn’t really look very la la.  At first we were thinking about wallpaper and than all came to a halt when I saw the beautiful calendar by Julia Kostreva (I have one of her journals and love them).  I thought it would be really fun to paint a geometric pattern as an accent wall.  We are going to go with similar colors (some sort of pink and orange hue).  I’m even thinking we should through in a few white polka dots.  There are still pieces to find and many details to sort out but the above outlines some definite choices.  For a fun element we are going to do a swinging chair (does anyone have any tips on where to find one?).  To see more inspiration on a little big girl room check out la la’s board on Pinterest.
