It's Back!

Meg Braff patterns
Did you know that Meg Braff designs wallpaper?  I didn't either!
Image and great interview from here.

Here are some of my favorite wallpapers from Meg Braff.  All of these would look great in a bathroom or small powder room.

Wallpaper makes a bathroom so much more interesting.  It makes a big impact in a small room.  Plus you don't have to buy as much which is always good!

Summer Necessities for the Home

Here is a list of my 5 Summer necessities I must have in my home when the temperature begins to rise.

1.  White sheets.

1000 Sateen Solid Sheet Set by Wamsutta, 100% Premium Long-Staple Cotton, 1000 Thread Count

There is nothing better than cool, crisp, white sheets on a hot summer night!  Here is a great article about thread counts and more.

2. Shell Boxes.

When I go to the beach, my souvenirs always include a shell box!

3.  Jo Malone candle in Orange Blossom.

The scent of these candles is definitely worth the splurge!

4.  Brightly patterned pillows for outdoors.

I like to change my outdoor pillows with the seasons, and summer calls for bright colors and fun patterns!

5.  Mrs. Meyer's geranium scented hand soap in the kitchen.

Nothing says summer like geraniums, and the same goes for this hand soap.  Smells like summer!

I Want To Go To Australia!

I want to go shopping at Black + Spiro.  Shop owner Anna Spiro loves bright happy colors and her store is really inspiring.  These pictures will have to do for now.  I hope you are inspired to mix some patterns, add more color, and take some chances in your home!  I know I am!   To visit her blog, go here.
