4 Kitchen Backsplash Pattern Ideas

colorful-tiles-kitchen-backsplash-pattern-3It’s become a daily occurrence now where I’ll spot some new design idea (well, new to me!) while sifting through magazines, Pinterest or hitting up trendy spots around town, and they just stick with me…as in, I can’t get them out of my head! It’s like when you walk away from almost buying something, then get out the door only to turn back around and scoop it up the next day because it just wouldn’t leave your brain. The only thing is that I don’t live in a house and this design idea in particular is simply not an option at the moment! So, for now I will stare adoringly at these images and hope that one day, I can make this patterned kitchen backsplash design idea a reality in the future. Something to look forward to, that’s how I’ll look at it!

Pretty Bed End Ideas

bed-end-5I just read the Apartment Therapy article “13 Ways to Rethink the Foot of the Bed” and couldn’t resist following suit with a post of my own. Blake and I are currently in an apartment where our room doesn’t exactly allow for anything at the foot of the bed…(I may have to jump over whatever we put there just to get to my side!), but this post really gave me some good food for thought as we scope out our next living situation in the upcoming months.

Cozy Bedrooms

cozy-bed-space-pink-headboard-vintageReady to crawl back into bed yet? It’s Friday morning and I am so ready for the weekend…and to stay in my PJ’s and cuddle up in my cozy, messy bed. Did you notice that trend in these pictures? Messy beds just look more inviting. Hey, as if I needed another excuse not to make the bed everyday, there’s another one. (I rarely make the bed!).  I’ve been meaning to write/create this post for a while, but with Austin weather going from freezing to 80 degrees within a week, it just didn’t feel right. When I think of creating an ultra cozy space, it’s in the colder months where you just want to layer up and hibernate. I love all of the different textured blankets, muted colors and amazing windows in each of the images above. I am a firm believer in natural light and the power it has to instantly create a more uplifting space, and I think that really holds true simply from glancing at these pictures.

Design Inspiration: Brights with Neutrals

colorful-kitchen-pink-tealHopefully those colorful images above lend you some interior inspiration! I’ve been flipping through the pages of the fabulous Design Bloggers at Home and I can’t get enough of the bursts of bright colors on nearly every page! I’m a sucker for buying neutrals, simply because of the infinite possibilities that generally come with basic browns/nudes/creams, etc., but after sifting through the book, I am realizing I can stick to mostly neutrals, but add in some color pops now and then to make the most impact. I love a minimalistic, clean space, so I’ll definitely be scoping out colorful rugs, buying more bright flowers and vases, and paying close attention to little, colorful details I can add into my space. (Throw pillows, lamps, kitchen accessories…Oooh, my poor wallet!).
