WEBSITE OF THE WEEK: Plaid Fox

In my opinion it really takes time and effort to find good online home goods stores that are the generic West Elm or Pottery Barn. Don’t get me wrong I do love those places, but sometimes you are wanting something a little bit more original, something a little less expensive, or just something new! The website of the week posts really started so I could keep track of all of the wonderful and amazing home goods online stores in one place. Now I really just can’t wait to share them with everyone! Here is a new one I found just the other week called http://www.PLAIDFOX.com

LOVE LETTERS TO HOME.

LOVE LETTERS TO HOME.

My favorite part about this online home goods story is that you can shop a specific style. If you’re looking for a great industrial piece of furniture you can go straight to industrial, if you’re looking for a great coastal accent for your lake house you can go straight to all the coastal home goods! LOVE.

LOVE LETTERS TO HOME.

It just gets even better, because if you don’t know what your style is, or really don’t know what you’re looking for but want something for your space you can take their “Find Your Style” test and see what would go best with your taste! Here were my results:

They also run an amazing blog called THE DEN with home decorating ideas, recipes, and interviews with artists and designers.

WEDDING WEDNESDAY: Little White Dress

I love the idea of having a reception dress for the evening of your wedding.

Here are some of my favorite LWD inspiration images, and a few dresses you can snag for yourself!

HOME-SPIRATION: His and Her Office

This past weekend I surprised David and gave him his office back. Many of you might be reading this wondering what happened to his office in the first place? Well my kind and gracious husband-to-be let me turn his bachelor pad office (full equipped with bo-flex machine) in to a quirky quest bedroom and a full time clothes closet. I finally came to my senses and realized that David and I both need a space to work and feel comfortable! From that, the idea of a his and her office was born. Next came the challenge of surprising him, luckily he was off to a fantasy football draft and golf outing with his friends this past weekend so it was the perfect time. More on the surprise later, first here are some of my favorite his and her office home-spirations.

LOVE LETTERS TO HOME.

REINCARNATION: Kitchen Island Carts

David and I love to eat. I mean who doesn’t? But what we really love to do is cook. We usually cook dinner together every night, which is a great bonding and catching up time, but we need more counter space (desperately!) So we are thinking about getting a kitchen island cart to add extra storage and much needed counter space for all the fun we have in the kitchen! Ours will be pulling double duty as a kitchen island and a breakfast table for the two of us! Here are some of my favorite home-spiration images for kitchen island carts and a few of the front runners in our search!

HOME-SPIRATION: Home Library

Summertime always reminds me of the library, I know weird right? I was always the kid buried in library books and the first to sign up for those library summer reading programs. I have always wanted a bookshelf full of my favorite books (I have all of my original Harry Potter books waiting for this day!), but a whole room dedicated to reading, snuggling up with a good read and a great blanket. Here are my favorite home-spiration images for a home library!

Come on! Who wouldn't want this?

REINCARNATION: Home Phone

I know David will laugh really hard at this post! I have been trying to convince him that the “home phone” is coming back, but I have yet to make him a believer. Even though I know that all we would get are telemarketer phone calls, I can’t help but love a good home phone. Here are some of my favorite home-spiration images for home phones and a few great options if you are feeling my home phone love!
