~wood blinds~

I love the look of wood blinds.
I used to have really cheap ones in our home, and over the last few years have upgraded to better ones that are still very affordable.
These are my favorite ones.
I first saw them in a friends home and was shocked to find out how cheap they were and the source for them. I thought for sure they would have been very expensive.
This is a horrible i phone photo, but you can see them in the kitchen in the background.

Here they are in our master bedroom:

My friend Holly uses wood blinds a lot in her designs:

Holly likes to use Select Blinds.

And if you read Cote De Texas, you will see a lot of them:

I just love the look they create, especially when paired with drapes.
You can buy them from Amazon and even Overstock.
But don't forget to check out your local hardware stores, like I said, ours our from Home Depot and I love them!

~our basement nook~{get the look}

This is one of the coziest spots in our home. A fun place to go read a book or just take a minute to relax.

I thought I'd show you how you can recreate this look in your own home.
I used reclaimed wood on this back wall.
But if you don't have access to that, here are some other options:

This wallpaper
This cool peel and stick product
You can find the artwork here
Similar lights can be found here
The fox pillow can be found here in this cute shop
The black and white pillow is fro Ikea.
The kilim pillow can be found here.
The blanket is a vintage woolrich one.
The cushion cover was made by Tonic Living using old Ikea fabric which is no longer available. 

I made the bench using these crates which I painted white.
In this look I used a combination of different pillows and changed out the sign.
 The pillow in the front was made using a old carpet.
The two matching stripe ones on either end are old from Ikea.
The lumbar pillow is made with vintage French ticking material and the other one is a grain sack pillow. Similar ones here and here, and here. 
The little black stool is vintage, but here is a similar one.
I bought the rug in this photo from this great etsy seller.

I hope you are having a great day!

~nursery decor~{& gear}

Nope, I am not shopping for nursery decor myself.  Don't be jumping to any conclusions!
I have one starting college in the fall and one starting high school.
It is hardly the time for a baby.
BUT, some of you are in that stage in your life! Those were some of the best years of mine.
I remember decorating their nurseries and buying them cute little outfits.
Taking way to many pictures of them, and spoiling them rotten.

Baby gear and decor has come along way since my kids were little.
I was just introduced to Baby Cubby a shop that has drive up ordering like Starbucks, has price matching {even to Amazon!
and free massages with purchases! 
Where was this place 18 years ago!
They carry the softest blanket that I own too, the Saranoni.
Seriously you guys, I am not even kidding when I say this blanket is the best most coziest thing in the world! They come in sizes for us moms too.

Here is some other fun items for the nursery for a girl:

For a boy:

And how about for the essentials?

So many cute things!
Anyone out there in need of fun baby stuff?

~new drapes in Savannahs room~

Remember how I recently talked about my love of linen?
Well I have finally updated the drapes in Savannah's room
{just in time for her to go off to college, ugh}
She also had Ikea cotton drapes, like we did, and I wanted something a little more luxurious.
Oh my, they are fabulous!
Honestly her room has so many pieces from Soft Surroundings, they all pair so well.
{full source list at the end of this post}

I added a set to her French doors, and a set to the windows behind her bed for privacy.

I love how they puddle on the ground.

Look at all the detail in the top too. The ruffles, the ties, the pleats, oh my. 

I think they make the space!
