Links of the Week

After planning a wedding, many brides enter a post-event planning slump of boredom. This website, an offshoot of wedding blog 100 Layer Cake, shows you how do fabulous family and kid events, complete with invitations, tablescapes, favors, etc. The party continues!

I do hope we all know what IKEA hacks are – awesome updates to cheap furniture? Love these ones.

One of the funnest home tours I’ve seen in awhile. It’s definitely of the “more-is-more” persuasion.




The Neutra-Luxe Bedroom

As we build our home together, we’ve discovered a few differences in taste. I like bold contrast and eclectic combinations; Tristan likes everything to be neutral colored, and the more matching wood furniture, the merrier. I can go neutral in color, as long as camel and dusty blue count as neutral and as long as there’s some texture to spice things up, such as a chandelier, fur (obviously), mirror or uphosltery. See how flexible I am?

As it happens, our apartment came chalk full of built-ins and customized touches, and our bedroom has a built-in jute area rug, white night stands, gold sconces, and linen-paneled walls. It is destined for this “neutra-luxe” look.

Here are some bedrooms I love right now that are inspiring my own bedroom’s design:
