Inspiration Monday: Garden Ornaments

 It's Monday again and I'm back with another inspirational post…this time we're looking at garden ornaments. No doubt, garden art can be pretty bad, but here are some examples that I'm loving and would be more than happy to incorporate into our garden. 

These are DIY concrete orbs, believe it or not.

The sundial is a classic example that never goes out of style.

I actually debated this orb for our garden, but it didn't make the birthday cut. Still love it.

Some ornaments can also be functional, like these bee skep in the garden.

The armillary is also a classic choice that would be a lovely addition to my any garden.

So, have I converted you? Are you now a garden ornament lover or have you always been one? Do tell…

Dining Room Progress

It's been a long time coming... we finally got our dining room chairs recovered! Probably doesn't seem like a lot, but we've had the chairs for close to a year now and the fabric since, well, it's also been awhile…clearly, we're all about the baby steps around here. But progress is progress and you can't be mad at that. 

Citron overload. Just kidding.
 To be honest, it was a lot to take in on first glance, but the coordinating throw pillows (found on etsy for a steal) helped to tone it down a bit. Thankfully.

And obviously help to relate the color to the overall scheme of the room. 

Initially, I had my heart set on something more teal or turquoise but the citron certainly pops in this dark, moody space and helps tie in some of the other accessories, like the ginger jars on the sideboard. 

Speaking of teal, I found this cute octopus clad vessel at HomeGoods yesterday and I think it's the perfect addition to the table. Yeah for happy finds and for taking the serious level down a notch. No time for a fu-fu dining room. Good thing, too, because I'm thinking she's gonna stay like this for awhile. 

You've come a long way, girl. See all our progress here:

Inspiration Monday: Bold Powder Paper

Phew, what a week at the beach we had! An amazing start to what will hopefully be an amazing summer.
While day dreaming conducting serious research on vacation, I stumbled across a new wallpaper crush that got me to brainstorming about bold powder room papers. Check out some of my favorites that are inspiring me right now.

Simple large scale graphic paired with painted wainscoting. 

Animal print. Enough said.

Miss Mustard Seed did an amazing job utilizing this large scale mural in her bath. 

I posted this image recently in my trending post and I haven't been able to get the oversized palm print out of my mind since. 

Truth is, I don't know anything about this paper but it looks absolutely fabulous as the backdrop to that stunning sink!

All this inspiration has me wishing for a powder room makeover in my near future. Sadly, it won't be happening anytime soon in my own home - but I'd be happy to help someone with theirs. Just say the word...

Happy Monday.
