The Friday Five: All About That Swag

Did you follow the One Room Challenge this season? I barely had a chance to follow any of the designer or guest participants’ makeovers, but from what I did see, people really worked hard to transform rooms from drab to fab in just a few weeks.

I did follow The Makerista’s 7-week room transformation of a girl’s bedroom, and it was just one beautiful piece of art/furniture/detail after another. I love the spray-painted beds she used as well as the sweet chest of drawers.

And it’s that chest of drawers with its swag drawer pulls that has inspired this post.

Trivia Thursday: Herringbone Pattern

Can you name the pattern of this floor?

Room for Tuesday

It’s called herringbone. We see it in the interior design and fashion worlds all the time, and people really do love herringbone marble or wood floors (including me, of course – have you seen my foyer?). The term herringbone is named as such for its resemblance to the bones of a fish such as the herring (see more at herringbone pattern).

Trivia Thursday: The Flag Halyard Chair

Check out this chair. Pretty beautiful, eh?

This is Hans Wegner’s Flag Halyard chair, and it dates back to 1950. 1950! The chair’s design is almost 70 years old, and it’s still going strong. Pretty fantastic, I’d say. Wegner, a renowned Danish furniture designer, designed this chair out of from metal, rope, and sheepskin as you can see. It adds interest and sculpture to any room.

Design: The White Cabin

I keep dreaming about owning a cottage. Ideally, it’ll be a full-season cottage so that I can spend cozy winter weekends there doing (just about) nothing. And would I paint my cottage-cabin white? You bet! I’m inspired by these beautiful exterior and interior designs.

#WhiteCabanaWearsPink: A Pink Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving to all of my Canadian readers!

It’s been another busy weekend on my end. I found my inner German on Friday to celebrate the first night of Oktoberfest in Kitchener-Waterloo, then feasted on turkey with family on Sunday to celebrate Thanksgiving. Today, I’ll enjoy a day of rest (and take care of a few chores, too)!

Since today is Thanksgiving Monday, for today’s #WhiteCabanaWearsPink, I’m focusing on beautiful Thanksgiving table decor in shades of pink, rose, and fuchsia. Infusing pink into a tablescape is easy to do for other occasions as well. Just keep layering the shades, and switch out the pumpkins for something more appropriate. Miniature disco balls or ornaments would be perfect to include for a Christmas table setting.
