Here are 5 things that caught my eye this week I had to share:
Colour Me Happy blogger Maria Killam gives 4 reasons why white might look “wrong” in your house, including one I mentioned in my post about Decorating With White — “When you have a dark room.” So true!
Richard Taylor shares his thoughts on design trends and explains why we shouldn’t worry as much about them as we do. (BTW, you may remember his attic makeover that I featured. And that chevron chair was from 6 Decorating Trends.)
I love Gilmore Girls–I’ve written about the sets they used (Dragonfly Inn, Lorelai’s House, etc.) and just finished watching all 7 seasons over again on DVD. So I got a kick out of a post on Entertainment Weekly written by someone who is still upset that Lorelai ran straight into Christopher’s arms after her epic fight with Luke outside his diner in Season 6. You know you’re a fan when you’re still thinking about these things…
This article at Hands-on Homebuyer has some great advice, which she prefaces by saying, “The real world is not like HGTV.”
Ever dream of living on a farm? Check out this fun post on Irishman Acres that has a checklist of 10 things she has learned over the past 10 years of living in the country–including “Front porches are a MUST.”
Where did the summer go? We only have a week left until my daughter goes back to school as a 6th grader and my son starts his first year at college (gulp). I’m going to enjoy every minute of vacation we have left together. Have a wonderful weekend, friends!
