Dana Small + Giveaway Winner!








You know what I love? Homes that don't take themselves too seriously; ones full of color, life and laughter! That's exactly the feeling I get from these photos taken by Annie Schlechter for Coastal Living. The home was designed by Dana Small, who infused their waterfront home in Stuart, Florida with cheerful, bright, beachy colors. She actually studied color therapy in design school and learned how it can hinder or help productivity. Imagine all that gets done in this home! I adore all the texture and natural elements in the living room, all so pretty. And hello there, dining room! The collection of colorful recycled frames really stands out on that vivid green background. Lastly, the kids spaces are loads of fun. Love Benjamin Moore's Tropicana Cabana on the walls of the playroom! A lot of the furnishings in the home were sourced through Dana's design and gifts boutique in Stuart, Florida called Matilda's. Definitely looks like a place I'll need to check out if I'm ever in the area!

Time to announce the lucky winner of the J.Covington Home lamp giveaway!

Marjorie from Nashville, Tennessee!

Come back next week because I have yet another giveaway coming up! Until then, have a wonderful weekend!! :)

Niki Kantor Rubin












With a tranquil aqua background and modern, colorful vibe, this chic nursery designed by Niki Kantor Rubin is filled to the brim with inspiration! Niki is actually the owner of Papery & Cakery (how cute is that name?), a stationery studio and blog out of Boca Raton, Florida. But more importantly she is also the new mom to twins Raya and Mason!! She set out to design the nursery in her favorite color (turquoise!) while keeping it as gender neutral as possible. I can't get over the results! Her favorite thing in the whole nursery are the fantastic portraits of the cuties taken by photographer Shelley Armenio, who also shot these great pics. I couldn't agree more! But really there are so many details to love here, like the Jonathan Adler pear mirror representing their "pair" of babies, the giant scrabble letters and adorable whale tissue holder from Etsy and the awesome graphic art above the changing table and in the bathroom that Niki designed and printed herself. See how talented she is?? For more from her, definitely check out Papery & Cakery and her inspiring blog! And a million thanks, Niki, for supplying us with the rest of the sources listed below!

Thomasville












Thomasville? Who woulda thunk it! So fun, fresh and colorful, just not what I was expecting from the company that has been around for over 100 years. Turns out they have evolved with the times and kept up with all the current trends. Thomasville was actually one of the names I was familiar with before hitting up High Point Market...I mean who hasn't heard of them? What I didn't realize was the level of customization they offer. You can choose from hundreds of great fabric to cover their upholstered pieces, or even use your own. All this by going in their retail stores...no designer needed! I couldn't get enough of their Reinventions line and it's (historically authentic!) warehouse vibe. And how about their new Calgary sofa pictured above...love the teal leather combined with that fab ikat!! One more thing...I totally had no idea they sold their own accessories...very cool wall art, bedding, lamps, all sorts of stuff you guys would love. What a learning experience....and oh so fun! Have I told you I LOVED High Point Market? :)

Kristen Panitch Interiors










When I look at these images from the portfolio of Los Angeles-based designer Kristen Panitch, I don't see some of the cutest rooms ever, I see life. The kids rooms feel so magical, so real and happy! Even the living areas are so kid-friendly, I can just see the families enjoying every inch of these rooms. The colors, the patterns, the layers, the lighting, the fabrics, the toys and crayons...I just love all of it. And I just have to say, that has to be one of the best kitchens I've ever laid my eyes on. Lots more waiting for you right over here!
