Washington Design Center Dream Home

Yesterday I went to check out the Washington Design Center Dream Home. It was the different rooms each designer came up with. I only wish that they had included a kitchen and bathroom as well. I love me some kitchen design porn that is for sure (I hate to think who might be led to my blog when doing a search for that!). Below are some of my favorite rooms. You can tour the dream home through November 30.

By far my favorite room was the living room by Scott Cooke. I love the purple, yellow and blue color palate. I'm definitely going to be stealing it for myself.

The Mad Men inspired lounge was pretty rocking as well. It would be the perfect place for a relaxing with a martini.

This clear piano in the lounge was to amazing. It took all my will power not to bust my elementry rendition of "Heart and Soul" right then and there. Combined with the artwork of Shawn Smith, this was one of my favorite corners.

I loved this paper screens in the dining room. It would be a great way to divide up a space while still allowing plenty of light through.

And finally, I just want to curl up in on this little window seat with a good book and a kitty. Don't you?

Have you been to the Dream Home? Tell me about your favorite room in the comments!

Rainy Day Yellow

Rainy Day Yellow

It's been so rainy here the last few days that I'm hoping that some pops of bright yellow will help bring back the sun.

Concrete Fruit Bowl

At my day job we are all really obsessed with the look of concrete counters, which unfotunately stain like there is no tomorrow and so are not the most practical kitchen counter material. What about using a concrete bowl to incorporate that look into your kitchen? I found the pictured bowl on Etsy. Although I'm not sure I would want to use this for anything other holding fruit, chips, or somthing else that is sure not to stain. That bowl certainly does make those apples look might tasty. Would you ever use a concrete bowl?

(Oh and the same seller has concrete lamps and pendants too! They look amazing.)

Woman's History Month

Next time I'm feeling down I'm going to look at this picture to remind myself that ladies are bad asses. (via Buzzfeed)

Heart In Hand

Have you ever tried a lemon plum? The flavor is like a cross between a peach and a plum and the inside it bright yellow. This little guy was too cute not to take a picture of.

Happy Friday everyone!
