Inspiring Designer~ Caitlin Wilson

How cute is she with her kids at home?!  Check out this months issue of House Beautiful, for more designer goodness!  I love how fun her bedroom feels, and can you believe the fabulous nightstands are from Ikea, she made them her own with a little DIY action!  The beautiful headboard and pillows are from her textile line, it's perfection

I adore all the textiles in her home fabric line!

Perfect colors and patterns to brighten up your home!

I'm sure you have seen this lovely image before, of her stylish home!  I couldn't resist, love that mirror!
the talented, Caitlin Wilson

Yellow Everywhere

 One of the first signs of spring, the beautiful Forsythias blooming all around.  I love seeing the bright yellow color popping up all over the landscape.  The happy yellow branches also add a nice touch in the home!

 I have a few in my yard and I'm planning on adding a few more, the low maintenance forsythia is perfect for added color and privacy.  Delicate, vibrent and beautiful, what's not to love!

Boston Love

MIT's building lit up as an American flag, to Honor the Victims, after Mondays tragedy

I'm so saddened and shocked by yesterday's horrific attacks in Boston.  My thoughts and prayers go out to all those affected.  Good will always overcome evil, as seen by the heroic people who selflessly helped all those in need.

Prayers for Boston

Black & White Stripes!

I've been seeing tons of stripes lately, Black and White especially!  Classic, crisp and neutral, I love the look!  Whether in the home or your wardrobe, you just can't go wrong!  The year round, contrasting colors are sophisticated and beautiful!

 Home Tour Crush ~

Fresh, eclectic, beautifully organized, the home of Aliana Kaczmarski's, from The Everygirl 

New Yummy

Trader Joe's, Cookie Butter, it's so good!!  Try it and you will be hooked.  It taste like peanut butter/ gingerbread/ and a cookie, in one.  I put it on a rice-cake, for a healthier treat.

Product loving ~
Garnier Skin Renew, gentle overnight peel, helps to improve skin tone and fade dark spots in a week!  

Easy Greenery ~

I picked up a few low maintenance succulents on a recent Home Depot trip, and (my best score of the week) the mulch was on sale for $2 a bag, that's true homeowner happiness These plants are perfect for a girl like me, who seems to kill bamboo.  I'm hoping for the best! :)

What are you loving lately?

Have a wonderful weekend!

Belle Wallpaper ~

Adore Magazine

I'm loving the latest issue of Adore Magazine, I fell for the inspirational colors in every page!  I especially loved the images from the home of Angela Perikic, just look at that amazing bamboo wallpaper, it's featured in one of her fabulous bedrooms!  The home decor is fun, bold with a regal vibe!  I wish I was more of a risk taker, when designing with wallpaper!  I personally can't commit in a big space, a powder room or entry, I love it!  The unexpected wallpaper ceilings throughout Angela's home, are stunning!
