REINCARNATION: Metal Shelving

Of course the more time I spend in Cincinnati the more I day dream about projects for our house in Plano. Right now my focus is on our kitchen because we need more storage and space! I love the idea of adding metal shelving to display our dishes, wine glasses, and maybe even have a bar shelf. Here are some of my favorite home-spiration images for metal shelving and a few amazing shelves I have my eye on!

HOME-SPIRATION: White Bedding

So David and I have taken on the challenge of redecorating the master bedroom and the guest bedroom in his house. From picking out colors, painting, painting fiascos, beds, bedding, etc. it has all been a huge learning experience, but so much fun! This home-spiration comes from the fact that we finally made the plunge and got all new amazing ALL WHITE bedding from Pottery Barn for our new bedroom. I was a little nervous about all white, but I LOVE the idea of monochromatic bedding! So here are some of my favorite home-spiration photos for white bedding.

HOME-SPIRATION: Lost Art of Potpourri

I was shopping in Pottery Barn yesterday and came across some amazing home scents. Sitting on the table next to these delicious candles was some even more delicious smelling potpourri. I don’t know what shocked me more the fact that potpourri still exists or that this potpourri actually smelled amazing! The only memory I have of potpourri is the crusty, fragrant-less potpourri from my grandmas bathroom. So I wanted to do a little research… does modern potpourri exist? and how does one use it without aging themselves 50 years? Here are a few of my home-spirations that might inspire you to get your potpourri on!

Love this modern holiday wreath that is actually going to make your house smell amazing!
