Mismatched Tiles: Thoughts?

It's Fridayyyy!!!! Are you as excited as me?! How was your week? I hope it was nice. I actually had a pretty good week, the weather was amazing and the family and I got to get outside and play, go for walks, and started working on a flower bed. 
Okay, so I wanted to share and hear your thoughts about what you think about mismatched tiles? Not sure I can even call it a trend, but I for some reason have just zoned into it the past few months. I've seen a room here and there with the mixed tiles on small or large scales and it really had me intrigued. It's definitely fun, and gives a room a very lively feel. 


What do you think? I think it's not for the faint of heart, but I find it very beautiful! In a space like the  second kitchen, because everything is so paired down and simple, it looks like a piece of artwork - which I guess it is.

Okay everyone, I hope you are having a lovely Friday!

Food: Dietlind Wolf

Believe me when I say, I really try not to post everything of Dietlind Wolf's work that I see on here. Her work never ceases to inspire and amaze me. The woman is a genius! We have to make a deal though, no blaming me if after seeing all these delicious photos, you find yourself looking for some treats to satisfy this food craving out of nowhere. :-)

Even that white paper with the grid pattern looks amazing. Like how does she do that?!

I love this violet series, it feels so old worl,d and romantic. I'm always amazed by her story telling abilities. Each series has a distinct story, and emotion conveyed yet her style is very apparent in each.

Light & Airy

Happy Monday! I hope it's an easy Monday and a lovely week for all of you. I thought to get us started, we shall look at a beautiful home, designed with natural wood, a light color palette, with pops of color and high contrast. I am so behind on homeworks, but I figure maybe getting this out there, I'll have no choice but to get back to it. I'll keep you posted on that. :-)

I am seriously crushing on that mint cabinet. Check out those chunky legs too!

I wish you all a beautiful week!

Home Tour: Tailored Industrial

There are some pleasures in life that can sometimes look frivoulous and unless you can relate it doesnt make any sense. However, knowing that I'm among friends, I know you will completely get the joy getting a stack of design magazines can illicit. Yesterday was one of those was like opening presents, each magazine prettier than the other filled with inspiration. Elle Decor really got me reeling though, with Ellen Degeneres and Portia de Rossi's home. I was giddy with excitement flipping through the pages, they were dripping with amazing shots.

I love the mix of rustic, industrial all balanced with a tailored approach. You can see that everything was carefully selected. I had no clue that Ellen is a huge design buff, and moves a lot because of this just so she can have an opportunity to decorate a new space.

The landscape which they fell in love with, understandably intoxicating.

I am completely smitten by their home, though absolutely gorgeous, it also has heart and soul.
What do you think? You can see the full article here, or pick up the latest issue of Elle Decor if you already haven't. I hope you are all having a lovely Sunday.

Long Silence

If you could see me typing this, you would see a girl hunched over with guilt as if the whole world is pointing at her with accusing stares. Dramatic…well you all know that I can be that, but I seriously feel so terrible about the deafening silence on this blog.
Life had gotten so hectic that I could no longer juggle all the responsibilities on my plate, and unfortunately, the blog was one of the casualties. Something had to give, and with work, school, family, there just wasn't any room in my brain for creativity or available time to curate anything worth sharing.

I hope to be back to full time blogging, and I hope you will all forgive me and pretend this break never happened.

Have an awesome day!
