HOME-SPIRATION: Outdoor Fireplace

So in recent months I have done A LOT of outdoor fire pit and patio posts. I think it is due to the fact that having recently moved to Dallas I am realizing how many months of the year outdoor spaces can be utilized here! I mean its October and today the high is 90 degrees! Yes I do miss the leaves changing and bundling up for fall activities, but I definitely do not miss the snow and cold! I love the idea of an outdoor fireplace for these late fall months in Dallas. It does get cool at night and I can imagine me and David having a place in the future with a gorgeous outdoor space, drinking wine and enjoying an outdoor fire. Here are some of my favorite home-spirations…

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.

REINCARNATION: Floor Lamp Favorites

Happy Monday morning everyone! I thought I would bring a little light to everyone’s week and talk about, well of course, lights! When I used to think of floor lamps I would think of the plastic floor lamp from Target that was in my dimly lit dorm room. Tacky and not functional. However, of recent I have rediscovered the beauty of the floor lamp when searching for lighting for our living room. Here are some of my favorite home-spiration images of floor lamps a few amazing options for any space!

WEBSITE OF THE WEEK: Terrain

In my search for new home goods to post here or to put in my own home, I am ALWAYS looking for new home good stores.

Terrain is a new website I came across the other day while online “shopping” for my latest REINCARNATION: Something Blue.
