My Favorite Baby Nurseries

Of course, baby nurseries have been on my mind recently, so I thought I'd share my favorite ones. Since we aren't finding out the sex, our nursery will have a neutral color palette, with lots of white, cream and soft hues of green and blue. We're in the beginning stages of decorating the nursery (we just put together the crib this weekend!), but I look at these images everyday and can't decide which one is my favorite...
Do you have a favorite? Please share...

Guest Post: Slipcovers for Summer

It is a well-known fact that the slipcovers of yesterday were kind of ugly. But these days, slipcovers are modern, chic and stylish. While the new, and more stylish, slipcovers are ideal for use year-round, they are also great for summer.

Slipcovers don't need to be white or even solid to be chic. These floral patterned slipcovers add a summery touch to this dining room. And because the slipcovers hang loose, the look is more casual as well.

Everything about this living room is fun and beachy. From the slip covered couch, to the artwork, bright colors and light fixture on the accent table bedecked in shells, everything about this space screams summer vacation.

Isn't this space absolutely beyond gorgeous? You'll notice, too, in the background, that the dining room chairs are also decked in crisp white slipcovers.

The slip covered chair in this cozy bathroom is covered in terrycloth, a clever solution. If you can afford having a slipcover made, then it would be important to consider the type of fabric you use. Terry cloth is a perfect choice here, since the chair might get wet on occasion.

This dining room has a casual elegance to it, underscored through slipcovers that are sleek and stylish. Love how the ceiling light looks like a lantern, accenting the picnic table and casual white tableware.

Slipcovers are a really convenient way to change up your style, and experiment with new colors, patterns and textures. You can dress a pair of mismatched club chairs with a slipcover for uniformity or you can transform an ugly chair into something new and beautiful all with the help of a stylish slipcover.

Pin it!

I know this isn't "news" to many of you, but Pinterest is AWESOME! If you don't know about it, you must check it out! It's brilliant and one of those ideas I wish I thought of myself. You see, I have TONS of folders on my computer, categorized and stored away in an ideas folder, covering everything from "Living Room Ideas" to "Beautiful Art" to "Flower Arrangements" to "Baby Shower Invitations"...etc. etc.  I constantly go to these folders for inspiration, but sometimes I can't remember where I found them and many get lost in the shuffle. So, Pinterest solves this problem! You can "Pin" anything you find online and then store it on one of your "boards." You can also browse your friends boards for inspiration, which is pretty cool.

So thanks Leighton for telling me about this a few months ago! So fun and helpful, and now I think I'm addicted...

White Kitchen Obsession!

There's something about a white kitchen that makes me happy. I'm always drawn to white kitchens, and I love the carrara marble look and the black granite look. Both are so good-looking, and I can't wait to redo ours someday. In the meantime, I'll keep dreaming...
