What do you feel like doing this weekend? You could partake in some sunny, "good for you" activities, such as hitting the farmers market for fresh veggies, starting to clean out your garden for planting, maybe even delivering the goodies from your outbox to a local charity shop. OR you could take a trip to the dark side, and immerse yourself in a world of fictional intrigue, scandal and horror. Sure, both sets of activities should be possible, but these shows can be addictive; your farmers-marketing might fall by the wayside! Apartment Therapy Unplggd

What city am I in today? (Between the weather in Chicago this winter and the sunshine in Arizona, that answer is clearly obvious!) The last few months have been a whirlwind. I'm reminded every day of how lucky I am to be living my dream.


Last week I mentioned my latest exciting new license partnership with Mirth Studio. This week, I'll go into a bit of detail. I am so proud to be a part of a fantastic new product release - painted wood tile floors with COCOCOZY patterns on them. Long story short. Via email and a blog post I met Sally Bennett, founder of Mirth Studio in Charleston, South Carolina. COCOCOZY
Design Editor Design Editor Hey there, I'm still here! Big breaks on this blog always coincide with major life changes like having babies. This time around it's a career change and moving to another time zone! Here's the deal.


decorology It's easy to dream about the home you'd create if only you'd have the time, and even if you are savvy and a talented decorator, sometime you still need help - or at least to partner with someone to help you keep on track and avoid mistakes that might have been avoided if you'd only had that second set of eyeballs checking dimensions or price tags. Or, if you don't have the confidence to do it yourself, there are service out there to help you bring you ideas to fruition. A lot of furniture stores offer complimentary design services, so remember to inquire if you make a purchase.

How About Orange

How About Orange Mission accomplished! The antique spinach dip tile on the dining room fireplace has been successfully disguised with removable panels. Apologies, Rookwood fans. But don't despair. If someday you buy this house from us, you can pull off these sheets of embossed thermoplastic and the spinach dip will be yours to enjoy.
Creature Comforts My house is much like a person; in that it is filled with plenty of quirks and faults, but I am determined to love it regardless. That doesn’t mean that I can’t find ways to improve it however…and the simplest and most dramatic way that I’ve found to do that is with the magic of paint. After moving in last Spring, I started dreaming of two easy paint-related mini makeovers that I wanted to try. So when Valspar Paint got in touch and asked if I would like to use their paints on any upcoming home paint projects, I jumped at the opportunity.

These brand new science posters by Jessica Rose of Vol. 25 are absolutely wonderful. I have this one hanging up on our bedroom wall and it is by far one of my favorite pieces of art in our home. Each is printed on textured canvas and comes in beautiful deep, vibrant colors. Here's a little bit on how these vintage-inspired science posters came to be...

If you’re a mom-to-be like me, or a newish mom still shopping for baby gear, I hope this post is somewhat helpful to you! My blog friend, Lesley Myrick, who just had her baby boy a few days ago (congrats, Lesley!), asked me what my baby registry essentials are and shared a link to her blog where she documented all the stuff on her wish list for feeding, sleeping, baby care and travel. decor8

Tiny Victorian Cottage [via The New York Times "Home&Garden"] The most adorable little victorian cottage ever. Sandra Foster turned a Catskills hunting cabin into the romantic Victorian cottage she had always wanted, using vintage columns, flooring and wavy glass windows, and doing the carpentry herself.

He’s here! We’re thrilled to introduce the newest member of our family, baby Teddy! On Wednesday, April 16th at 8:51 am, Theodore Freeman Petersik was born wielding a tiny drill weighing in at 8 lbs on the dot and measuring 19.5 inches long. We’re crazy in love with him, including Clara who just can’t stop kissing and snuggling “her baby.”
