Friday Faves 3.29

I’ve developed a serious problem with renovating our home. I am addicted to planning and I am failing at executing. We’re short on time as it is with our jobs and the day-to-day so finding the hours to complete projects is tough. And I spend most of that time perusing designer homes instead of designing my own!  I should probably also note that I am terrible at decision-making. I can never make up my mind – I finalize a plan and then BAM! I find something grander.

Current project? Finally getting around to our weird little 3rd bedroom soon-to-be den. It contains one of two exterior doors in the back of our house and the one most used to go in and out of each day. The thick, wide tongue and groove panels are stained a beautiful dark honey and one entire wall of windows that look out to our backyard and patio. Our intent for this room is a place to relax and read a book or just a space to escape the heat when hosting friends over for cookouts and patio parties this summer. And as much as I like the stained wood, it’s just too dark and dated.

I’m not at a loss for inspiration so I thought I would share a few of my faves:

Tell me, what are you faving today?

Pink Passion

I’m usually the first to declare that I am not a fan of pink but lately I’ve been crushing hard from blush pastels to bright fuchsia and everything in between. So much so that I frequently daydream of adding a touch of it to each room in our house. B won’t be too pleased but think if I can sneak it in here and there, he might not notice.

But then there’s the issue of our master bedroom and bathroom windows. I’ve been on an exhaustive hunt for the right fabric to brighten up these two projects. We’re oh so close to having everything just as I envisioned. After multiple trips to every designer fabric store in the county and hours spent online, I’m still searching.

It seems that I am in love with something that appears to only exist in the blogosphere.  Seriously, this pink floral goodness pops up in my feed at least once a week if not more. All I know is that it originates from Anna Spiro’s bedroom and I NEED IT NOW.

If you come across it, I need precisely 15 yards.

K, thanks!
