Chic Stripes

This girl knows what she is doing. One of my favorite blog friends, Michelle from Three Men and a Lady, painted stripes on her entryway/hallway walls and made it instantly chic. I don't know if I would have the patience to tape every. inch. of. this. room. but thankfully Michelle did so that we can see her fabulous design. One of my favorite parts of this space is the chalkboard wall making use of that peculiar curved space. I love it. If you don't read her blog, you should. She also does amazing furniture makeovers. And I mean amazing.

This is the 2009 Costal Living Seawatch Idea House in Sunset, North Carolina and it is amazing. I don't think that there is a room in this house that I do not love. The decor is so fresh and modern. The color combinations are unique and creative!

chic thanksgiving

Not into pumpkins? No problem! This Thanksgiving table was designed by Joanna at Lotushaus and is super unique and could be used in a variety of settings (can you just picture a boy baby shower?). Of course this edgy setting is not for everyone on Thanksgiving but it is useful for getting ideas. Described on the Hostess blog:

Joanna fashioned paper cranes (which carry a subtle resemblance to the shape of a turkey) from gift wrapping paper and used crimped silver wire to hang them from kiwi vines (available at Michaels stores and other florist/craft supplies). To keep the kiwi vines standing upright, they were inserted into floral foam placed inside of a drinking glass, which was wrapped in turquoise tissue paper. LED tea lights were dropped into the glass as well and gave the arrangements a cool, magical, “loungy” glow!

Polyvore is addicting! Have you ever tried it? You can basically put together anything you want and make a inspiration board whether it be clothes or decor. Here is my first stab at it. I had to stop because I could be up until 2 am!
