Apartment Therapy Unplggd

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.


Nice modern living room - with an organized open floor plan. From one angle it is stark white with white epoxy painted concrete floors, white walls and white cabinetry in the kitchen. A few black and color accents in the furnishings. Flip around in the room and all of sudden - COLOR! Bright sunny accent walls are carefully planned out to create a modern sleek colorful home.

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 One of the things I did this weekend was dress up these lamps I got at an antique store. Check out their new outfits! The lamps didn't come with shades, so I don't know what the original shape would have been. I searched high and low at Target, HomeGoods, and any stores I could think of that sell new shades, but couldn't find a size that wouldn't look silly on these slender bases. So I Googled online places that will make custom-sized shades, and finally selected Fenchel Shades.
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
One of my goals for 2014 is to dress up a bit more and maybe actually wear make-up more than once a week! The new look book from vintage clothier, Yo Vintage! has me super inspired to channel a little more girl and glam- all in a very understated way of course! {frolic!}
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.

Wire Chair Love Maybe we should change the name of our site to WCL, because guess who found four awesome vintage wire chairs for the kitchen for $15 a pop? This girl (*points to self with thumbs, notices there’s peanut butter on one thumb, and licks it off while beaming at pretty new chairs*) Allow me to paint you a picture of chair-finding glory.
