2.1 Small Dwellings (More white + wood + plants)

All the plants brought such warmth and color in this otherwise Scandi/mid-century home featured in Coco Lapine Design.  And that sweet dining area!

3.1 Bits and Pieces (Arched Doorway)

My favorite feature in this house (from a Cup of Jo home tour) is their arched doorway – and the open shelves beside the doorway.  I really like the white and wood theme all over their house (and don’t they have the prettiest exterior?  Talk about curb appeal!), but that doorway was a big inspiration for the new open doorway I had made for the ante-room when we renovated.

FAVES: My favorite Montessori living room

I have this Montessori mom’s post on her living room bookmarked in my mobile – I love, love, LOVE this living room by Three Minute Montessori.  You know I love my white and wood and plants – I love that this space is obviously kid friendly and uncluttered, but still so pretty at the same time.   I really admire Montessori homes, but quite a lot are very functional and practical – I am always overjoyed to find homes that blend functionality and preparedness with the aesthetic of the grown ups who actually share the home with the child.

FAVES: A Pinterest bathroom (my favorite for printed tiles)

This bathroom makeover was all over Pinterest.  It continues to be one of my main pegs for our bathroom renovations, especially since I found the perfect cement tiles (hand made! Locally crafted!).   I was overjoyed to find the actual post from Rue Magazine, and was blown away by all the other details of this renovation that I hadn’t encountered before in Pinterest:
