Orange Punch + New Purchase






Sometimes a punch of color is all you need to kick start your Monday morning. Or some color + a cup of coffee (or tea, in my case...) I think this Atlanta Home Tour, first seen on House Beautiful, does the trick. Now, with that said, this home tour isn't necessarily my personal style, but I do adore certain aspects of it. 
1. Orange pillows and curtains
2. Exaggerated drum shades over the dining room table
3. Tiered ceilings in the master bedroom
4. Symmetry in the guest bedroom
5. Texture in the light fixtures and in that amazing abstract art.
6. Curtains hung high and dramatic!

It's always fun to look at homes you wouldn't live in yourself, but learn to appreciate all design and in turn, pick out elements you do love from other styles. What's your favorite element in this home? 

In other news, we are in the process of updating a few things in our kitchen/family room, and yesterday we purchased a new dining table and chairs. We also got this beauty from Pottery Barn. It's on sale for $99!! I can't wait for it to come in the mail.
Hope you had a lovely weekend! What did you do? 
Enjoy your Monday:)
Love,

  5. Love that light fixture! We have been hunting for the perfect light fixtures for our new home and haven't found them yet. Westelm.com so far is leading the pack in possibilities.

  9. I love all the neutrals mixed with bright pops of color. And, for some reason, the covers (slip covers?) on the night tables in the guest room really stand out to me. I like how they look!
