Saturday Morning Musings

Good Morning Sugarplums (!)  Happy Weekend to you!  In the ultimate act of procrastination (since I’m supposed to be moving today), instead of packing I’m drinking coffee, rubbing Gus’ belly and fiddling around with Pinterest.  Whoops.  If you have anything pressing on your plate today, perhaps you should halt and fiddle faddle with me for a minute too:

{WHAT SATURDAYS ARE FOR}

This pic evokes all kinds of warm fuzzies for me, but the ponytail / denim / chambray also makes me feel like Fall’s comin.

Dream a Little Dream (Kitchen)

Earlier this weekend, I ran across a “Dream Home: Covet Living” guest post I did for Paloma Contreras at La Dolce Vita a few years ago.  It was a great little series that a lot of bloggers and designers contributed to, and essentially a post where each of us was asked to compile our favorite images and walk readers through what would constitute our dream home.  Anyhow… I realized that my style has growed-up some since then, so I started cooking up an updated version… and then that got so long that I decided to divide it up and do one post per room (stay tuned for that noise!) And after THAT, I got off on a tangent doodling the elements of my perfect kitchen. Isn’t she a beauty??  Do you wanna come over for coffee?!

COVET LIVING: DREAM KITCHEN | SOURCES

1 – Jazz Pendant, Currey & Co (I know, I know… I used this glorious pendant in a Beach House Chic Mood Board recently, but I can’t help myself.  I’d put it in every beach house, outhouse, penthouse and pool house if I could.)

2 – Petite Alliance 4 in Terra Cotta & Marble, Tabarka Studio (for backsplash), Calacatta Gold Marble Slab (for countertops), Antiqued French Oak Flooring the color of driftwood (similar to shown)

3 – Milky-white cabinets with sliding glass uppers and oil rubbed bronze hardware (image HERE – designer unknown)

4 – Reclaimed Lumber Olivia Dining Table, CFC (slightly less expensive and a smidge more contemporary sister company to Noir)

5 – Colonial Cane Chair in Distressed Brown, Noir

6 – Paint Color: Down Pipe, Farrow & Ball, Lucite & Brass Pulls (similar to shown)

7 – Distressed Antique Brass Faucet, Waterstone

8 – Farmhouse Sink in Silicon Bronze, Rocky Mountain Hardware (eh, mah GAH.  nomnomnomnom.)

Happy Sunday!  I hope everyone is still in their sweatpants and eating pancakes and doing as little as possible.
