Friday Five | 10.24.14



Did you have a good week!? I hope so! Here are a few things that have caught my eye recently!


Looking for a new fabric source? Try Lewis & Sheron Textiles! Here are a few of my favorites! 



Jennifer, The Chronicles of Home rounded up her upholstery essentials! David and I always say, having the right tool for the job makes ALL the difference .. if you're serious about upholstering several pieces, I highly recommend purchasing air tools - life changing!

Selecting lighting for an open floorplan can be tricky .. You don't want everything to match, but you want it to be cohesive .. here's a great example of how to do it successfully - vary the shape (dining room pendant is very linear and open, kitchen pendant is closed and cylindrical), vary one finish, but have one in common (both are brass, but the kitchen pendants add white) and vary quantities (dining room has 1, kitchen has 2).

I've been thinking about adding mirrors to our bi-fold closet doors in our bedroom - how great does this closet look by Modern Craft

This Gold Lotus pendant from World Market is pretty amazing!! So is the price!! 


I hope you all have a great weekend!! :)

What Would Sarah Do? | Caning Chair

For today's What Would Sarah Do? I'm sharing a caning chair sent in by Becky. I have a soft spot for caning chairs, I still miss mine that I sold before we left CA!

Mini Living Room Reveal

It's been a busy few weeks, without much time to share what I've been up to, so I'll have lots of pictures  and tutorials in the next few days! First up, our living room! I'm holding off on a full reveal since I finished just in time for The Home Depot Style Challenge and it's currently decorated for Christmas (and needs some finishing touches).. so a few more weeks :) But for now, here a are few shots that didn't make it into the post.

I wanted to share follow up on the Stocksund Sofa at Ikea that I shared last week. In person, the quality was pretty good and it was comfy! My only complaint is that the bottom looked a little loose (maybe it could be stapled? I didn't look closely). But, for the price, I thought it was great!
