Sometimes it starts with a bathroom, this thing I call a “house crush.” It can begin with any room or detail or color that catches my attention, really. This bathroom, the old sink, the old copper faucet, the simple pine shelf over potty (we still call it in our house) are so unassuming and so perfect.
One can only assume that when a bathroom is so becoming then the rest of the house, the rooms that connect from to the other, must also have some very pretty details that I’m hungry to see.
Have you heard of Indelust, yet?
If not let me be the first to introduce you to a beautiful selection of home goods and fashion originating from the Indian subcontinent. I’m swooning over the many lovely finds on their website and the fact that Indelust believes that shopping should have a social conscience. You’ll find many items are handmade, vegan, organic, sustainable and even vintage. Cool, right?
Since I truly love getting behind a good brand that offers beautiful products, I’m sharing a few of my favorite items from the Indelust Sale (up to 40% off).
Here is what I’m la la loving… I think you’ll love it too!
1 / Monotint Splotch Top / The perfect silky (handmade) summer shirt. Did I mention the matching shorts to make the perfect pair?
2 / Striped Cushion Cover / This dip dyed striped cushion cover in toffee and black is to die for. The colors and pattern are just right for the coming fall season.
3 / Geometric Embroidery Cushion Cover / This bold modern pattern adorned with traditional Indian Aari embroidery is perfection.
4 / Tartan Cushion Cover / The brush stroke pattern and detailed string closures are super cool.
5 / White Applique Table Runner / perfect to dress up a table for an end of summer luncheon.
6 / Contemporary Muddah with Black String / This design is striking and works great as a little end table, perhaps next to your favorite chair, or topped with a round cushion for a sweet little seat.
7 / Festival Double Quilt / I love a good quilt, don’t you? It’s an heirloom. The patterns and colors are so pretty and perfect for passing down one day.
8 / Japanese Basket / This monochromatic basket made from recycled plastic by disadvantaged woman makes a great gift (for a special someone or to treat yourself). It would work great to hold blankets, clothes, or any of your favorite things.
9 / Sequin Stripe Shift Dress / How pretty is this dress? The shape, the stripes, the sequins. I’d love to add this beauty to my closet.

PS – I’m curious, when you have a little spending money would you rather shop for clothes or home decor?
It’s been a while since I’ve made any updates in my home and I was itching for a bit of change. My little office space (which is in my bedroom) was starting to get cluttered and chaotic (see before picture at the end of the post) and so I chose that space for a little TLC. After all, this is where I spend time creating and I’m in need of some new inspiration.

Paint can make such a difference, right? In kid’s rooms it can add a lot of pizzazz (I like to say that word, but typing it, it looks like pizza, anyways) or shall we say interest.
I’m a sharing a four creative ways to use paint kid’s rooms.
Yes, of course you can use it on the walls. But that doesn’t mean it has to be conventional. That is the thing I love most about decorating kid’s rooms, being conventional is not a good idea, being creative is. So if you are using paint on the walls why not only paint part of the wall? Or perhaps a corner in a geometric design? I love this fresh concept pictured above.
While the next paint idea is a bit of a throw back, it’s not a bad one when . . .
Spring must be in the air….because I’m front door dreaming. Before I get the urge to clean up and make our back patio cozy, I always feel compelled to paint the front door.
