more uk love

on a day like today, i thought i'd share some more wedding bliss hailing from across the pond.

there was plenty more where that came from if you liked it.... go here to check it out.

and HAPPY friday.


the wedding!

did you watch this morning?

i'll admit, i'm a huge dork, got up eeearly and watched :) i mean, i had a mad crush on that boy when was 13.

elle's prediction was right, it was a mcqueen dress and she looked beautiful.

and he, quite charming in that hat ;)

but now i fear it's going to be a long day.

chic beach bungalow

often times a beach or lake house gets the hand-me-down furniture and acts as storage unit for the unwanted...well here are a few fun and budget friendly solutions to add some punches of ocean inspired love to your second home. keep it simple with white walls and slip covers and toss in bright pillows, sheets and accessories to liven up the space!!...all from west elm

for your sanity

i just recently saw this lovely in the latest martha stewart living:

and it made me think of this one!:

(the mural and those curtains = love)

but i've had it saved for so long, that now i don't even know where it comes from. it looks strikingly similar to the one martha used above, which you can get here... so maybe they are sisters?

i also had these 2 saved:

from bobbie burger via design*sponge

and this one from house and home
{which apparently elicits hot make-out sessions in your back yard... it's that good.}

these would be especially perfect during one of those this-winter-is-never-quite-possibly-never-going-to-end moments... but since we are luckily in the heart of spring, they just make me smile.


when one door closes...

it had better be a pretty one.
isn't that how it goes?

well anyway, here are some majorly colorful doors found INSIDE the home.

via apt. therapy... notice it's 2-tones?

most of the ones i found are in the yellow/green or blue family. interesting.

remember my post about your front door? well i suspect indoor doors deserve just as much love and attention. i have a long hallway that all the bedrooms come off of, as well as a closet and a bathroom... i think all those doors would look pretty fantastic painted. now i'm on a mad hunt to find just the right color.
