It’s Friday! The weekend is here and I am really looking forward to a fun-filled weekend with the boyfriend. We plan to try out a new burger spot and visit my sister and nephew. Nothing too big, but family and food are always fun!
As you know, I’ve been planning my workspace in my living room. I’ve made some progress but I’m stuck at storage. I’m trying to decide if I will flank my desk and window with bookshelves. I love the look but my windows are so tall that I would have to find bookshelves 8 ft tall. My budget only permits 7 ft tall bookshelves so now I’ve been looking for a solution. I may just have to give up on the idea of bookshelves but more on that later…
So many bloggers and designers are moving into their own studio spaces. It’s such an inspiring process. I can’t wait for the day that I have my own studio/storefront! Emily Henderson and Amber are sharing their studio design process. I can’t wait to see the reveal of Amber’s studio space. The custom storage looks amazing! It’s cool to see the space planning process and the custom detail drawings.
I’ve been obsessed with Podcasts lately. I listen to The Read for entertainment purposes and I listen to The Lively Show, After the Jump and Myleik Teele to learn. These ladies provide so much useful information and are just overall inspiring. The Lively Show and After the Jump are both available on iTunes. Do you guys listen to any podcast?!
My Pattern Mixing 101 post has been really popular this week! I’ve been thinking about doing a part two where I show 3 examples. Make sure you check it out.
I discovered Lauren Conrad’s The Little Market. It’s a global market of artisan groups. I’m always skeptical of sites like this but it looks like she is doing it the right way. She highlights the designers and tells their stories. The products seem to be fairly priced as well. I really like their wood serveware from the Wood Carvers of Kenya.
That’s a wrap people! Have a great weekend!
