There are a number of things on my mind right now. Including but not limited to
Did you watch the two-hour season premier last night? What did you think?
3. Spray paint.
The Krylon brand has become my new official spray paint. I tried it for the first time today (the indoor/outdoor in ‘gloss’). I was skeptical during the application, but the paint spread and dried beautifully. It seriously looks like a professional paint job. Each can has an awesome ergonomic spray button (sounds silly, I know, but it makes a difference to my Mr. Pointer when I’m spray painting a huge desk). Also, you can rotate the sprayer to spread horizontally or vertically or any angle in between. And it’s cheap too – it only costs $2.99 a can. I bought mine at Home Depot but I’ve also seen Krylon at other stores.
4. Mrs. O’s dress choice.
Was I the only one sort of disappointed with Michelle Obama’s dress? It wasn’t my favorite. I thought it was okay, but pretty much every designer in the world was chomping at the bit, wanting the chance to dress Michelle for the day, and this is the best they could do? I guess I just expected something more classy.
You know what was SO classy though? On the steps of the White House, Mrs. Obama gave Laura Bush a leather bound journal for writing her memoirs. The journal was engraved with the quote: “There will come a time when you believe everything is finished. Yet that will be the beginning.”
5. Emerald green.
This pretty vignette is from designer Mary MacDonald’s beautiful Hollywood guest home, published in the latest Domino. That shade of green is so beautiful.
6. Box pleats.
I love ’em, just generally.
But I really love Erika’s new sofa and chairs.
She bought them from Best Slipcover Company. She seriously has the best taste. Don’t you just love the print on those chairs?
I don’t know way I love it so much. The painted floors? The millwork? The artwork (probably). Plus, I’ve got pale, smokey aqua (Chiang Mai fabric) on the brain lately. Which reminds me of…
9. Miles Redd’s NYC townhouse.
Aren’t the awnings absolutely perfect? His front door is the exact shade of “dirty” aqua that I’m talking about. I love it. Also love that door hardware. Wow.
I decided to paper the inside of my pale blue china hutch. So tonight I picked up a few pieces of this relatively inexpensive paper at Paper Source. The goal is to achieve the same look as wallpaper, but this project is a fraction of the cost.
The coral color of the paper looks really pretty with my chair fabric.
What’s on your mind right now? Any fun projects to share? I need some inspiration!
