THINGS I LOVE IN DESIGN/DECOR
How amazing is this Nordic lake house? I’ll take it!
If you’ve been here for the last few months, then you know I’ve been preoccupied finishing up our outdoor space. So since I’ve shared so much outdoor inspo recently, I promise this week is all about interiors!
I get a lot of inquiries about my Pottery Barn desk from people coming to the office makeover post and I thought I’d share a similar one that I found that’s a steal. This desk has a similar look at less than half the price (and it’s solid oak which mine is not!)
This stunning bowl is way less than I’ve seen it for before (would make a perfect entry way bowl for dropping keys and mail). I just adore the European feel of this pitcher, this rustic vase is on major sale for under $40 (free shipping, too!), and I’m in love with this gorgeous rug (hoping to use it somewhere!) This bed is gorgeous, gets amazing reviews and the price can’t be beat!
If you’re looking for pillows it’s hard to beat Pottery Barn. All of their covers have zippers and are often less than the pillow covers on Etsy – and they’re always cute! This one is such a soft and pretty pattern, and I’m in love with this one (It’s a great bridge between summer and fall!)
FYI: this planter basket that you all loved is back in stock! (It’s also lined so it’s a true planter).
THINGS I’M WEARING/LOVING/WANTING
I’m loving the idea of a feminine, floral dress for summer. In fact, I’d love a couple! The pattern and color of this one (in the blue) is so pretty, I bet this one would be flattering on almost any figure, this one or this one would be perfect for a summer wedding or out to dinner, and this one is the perfect casual day dress (love it in the black too!)
I get a lot of questions about the beaded gold bracelets I wear everyday but now I found some that are less than what I paid! (I have 5 stacked on one arm – one 6mm, two 5mm, and one 4mm). Lately I’ve been wanting to add a pretty chain to my usual stack. This bracelet is stunning (love the vintage vibe!), I adore the paper-clip style of this one and this chunky chain is gorgeous!
And you know I love a good straw bag! I fell in love with this cute blue striped one, but then I also found this adorable version on Ebay for so much less!
THINGS I’M WATCHING/READING/LISTENING TO
Lately we’ve been feeling like we’ve run out of shows. Do you guys feel that way?? For awhile I couldn’t keep up there were so many, and now, I feel like I’ve seen them all, haha! So recently I decided to watch some I’d never seen.
We recently started Only Murders in the Building and I really like it (big Steve Martin fan!) And I’ve also fallen in love with Veronica Mars! How had I never seen this show?!
THINGS I’M MAKING/EATING/DRINKING
I’m always looking for new summer recipes and these BBQ Salmon Tacos look good, and this Summer Chicken Salad looks delicious and filling!
Gorgeous entryway in this European-influenced home.
8 Tricks for Taking Better Travel Photos on Your Phone (now this I could use!)
Have you heard about the newest soap scent from Method? This hand soap is apparently a dupe of the cult favorite Le Labo 33 perfume which starts at over $200!
And since summer is full of it, How to Make Produce Last Longer.

I’m so happy to hear that Rosemary!
The Salmon Tacos look AMAZING. Just printed the recipe, can’t wait to try them!!
Yay – love that Marlene! I’m going to try them too!
Love it all! I’m ordering the 20x 20 pillow cover and maybe the lumbar too! It’s sometimes hard to find soft colors with blues that are pretty. These look modern but can still work with my european french style. You just made my home a little prettier! Thanks Sheila!
Yay! Love hearing that JC – I’m about to order them myself! Hope we both love them!
I love your Friday Favorites but I just love your page and so glad I signed up for it.I will have to say you are my favorite page that I go to for all my information on new ideas and products, I could go on and on but just letting you know …Love all…..
Aww thank you Nola! That is so sweet – you made my day!

The iphone picture taking tips are helpful. I’m so open to learning as I know my phone can do much more than I use it for.
I want to try those tacos…the fish and the salmon! Those look awesome!
I’m glad you enjoyed the post (and I can’t wait to try those tacos too!)
Lori Logic says
Can I please have the recipe for the salad! Thanks
Hi Lori! It’s linked!!
Thanks for stopping by!

This is an inspiring site with fresh ideas and a positive approach. Love the fashion among the decor. There’s nothing more “freeing” than the swish of a summer skirt. Thanks for the reminder!
