Friday Friday. Were at 5 days of rain here in the lovely Seattle area. At some point you just put on your rain boots (or wellies?? That’s what they say on the East Coast right?), waterproofish jacket and go out in it! (Then spend about 20 minutes drying off the sopping pup ;) I guess that’s what you get here in the winter…
To fight the effects of the wet, gray weather, I like to look at bright, beautiful spaces. This space is in the residence of Sarah Sherman Samuel, whom I’ve already mentioned that I adore. I love that huge circle mirror! The light and stained wood pieces look beautiful against all the white accents. I think the floor to ceiling subway tile only around the immediate sink area is gorgeous.
Last weekend I made a late Saturday night run to Ikea, about two hours before they closed. Have you ever gone at that time? It’s my favorite time to go. No traffic, less visitors, and home by nine to start assembling the goods. While I was there I cruised past a new section I hadn’t seen before: Ikea’s paper supply! It was probably good that I didn’t peruse it then and there or my receipt would’ve been much longer when I left! How fun would it be to gather together some of their very Scandinavian pieces to fill your office space?
This living room would cure all my rainy days blues. I’d curl up on those adorably simple pillow patterns and the sheepskins.
On a whim I decided to look up what the Ork Poster company was coming up with recently. I have one of their Seattle neighborhoods maps in our bathroom and I love the design and brightness (mostly from it’s size) that it brings to the space. Now they have way more cities represented as well as a full USA map! How cool is that!
Lastly, this print from Urban Outfitter’s apartment section is just too cute. I love it every time I see it.
What’s been on your home dream list recently? For me, a completed bathroom! My husband has declared that tiling is much harder than he expected. (But he’s still doing an incredible job as always :) I hope you all found some sort of sunshine in your life this week :) Even if it’s not the UV type.
