DIY // Faux Metal Planter

I just got back from my trip to Ventura and LA last night and have a lot to catch up on today. But I wanted to pop in this morning to share these metallic planters that I made for Curbly recently.

All in all, each one of these took me about 5 minutes to make, and I already had all of the supplies, so it cost me nothing. Don’t you love it when that happens?

P.S. I had a great time at Craftcation and will be sharing some photos from my trip soon. What did you do this weekend?

loving these six things

This morning, I have butterflies in my stomach, from all the excitement…because today is the first full day of Meet/Make/Do activities. Chelsea, Kelly, and I got everything set up yesterday morning/ afternoon, and everyone started arriving mid-day. Then we headed out to dinner (which was delicious). I can’t wait to share the details from this event. For now though, you can follow along here. And on my Instagram. #meetmakebing

I was so looking forward to doing it all over again today, I woke up super early, like it was Christmas morning or something.

The vibe here is light, airy, and all kinds of calming/relaxing. So, I thought it would be appropriate to round up some of my favorite things right now that fit that description: light, airy, and completely calming…

What is inspiring you lately? Anything in particular that you’re absolutely loving?

interior obsession // turquoise wall in bedroom

I wanted to name this post ‘I ain’t afraid of no ghost color’ but I can’t do a strikethrough on the title. So, let’s just pretend.

I think it goes without saying that I am a big fan of white interiors. White walls. White floors. White everything. BUT there is definitely something to be said for color as well. When I was in high school, I distinctly remember wanting to paint every room in my imaginary college apartment a different color. Which would have been utterly insane. But that’s what I wanted at the time. Man, how things have changed!

The only downside to color is that it’s much harder to get it ‘right’. I mean it’s easy to make things looks good when you have white walls (hello gallery), but color? That’s a whole lot more difficult, if you ask me.

Here are a handful of bold uses of color that are absolutely doing it right…

(above) I am in love with this turquoise wall.

This tile backsplash is amazing. Don’t you think? (found via designlovefest)

interior obsession // great living area with royal blue accent wall

Doesn’t that artwork look great on a royal blue backdrop like that? Never thought I would say that, but it’s true.

 Yellow!

interior obsession // salmon wall

Salmon walls with that emerald green chair? Now, that is bold! And also, perfect.

interior obsession // dark teal stairs

And these jewel-toned, dark teal stairs are pretty great too.

So what do you think? Would you dare to try any of these colors on your walls (or stairs for that matter)?
