After a week away, I halfway thought I would still be playing catch up when this weekend rolled around. But somehow, I managed to get all caught up (except for emails. ugh. emails!), which means I can do some DIYing this weekend, just for fun. Yay. What about you? What are your plans for the weekend?
Here are some projects I’m loving at the moment…
1. Stamped Pillow DIY from Go Forth Creative
2. Color Blocked Tassel Napkins DIY from House of Earnest
3. Dip Dyed Planter DIY from Hello Lidy
4. DIY Message Scroll for Graduation and Father’s Day from Paper & Stitch
5. Polka Dot Curtains DIY from A Beautiful Mess
Have a great weekend!
This week, I thought I would try something different with Interior Obsessions and take things…outdoors! I realize that seeing homes from an outside perspective does not exactly qualify as an interior, but hey, I’m going with it anyway. Because these backyard living spaces are basically what dreams are made of. At least my dreams, anyway.
So here are a few of my favorite outdoor spaces at the moment…
(above) Starting with my absolute favorite.
And this one isn’t half bad either.
Love the pops of color in this outdoor dining area.
This courtyard (with a plunge pool) looks like like a spa.
A dreamy backyard artist’s studio.
And this one makes the most out of a tight space. Love all the glass at the back of the house and that long lap pool.
Are you spending more time outside, now that summer is almost here? I definitely have been, so I’m curious to hear if you have too.
So, before I left for my trip, I put together a new flower DIY and was fully prepared to get that written up and posted for today, but I didn’t get back home until late last night and I just couldn’t get it done. It happens, right?
So to tide things over this morning, I’ve rounded up some flower inspiration (DIY and otherwise) and will be sharing that flower DIY next week. Here are 8 reasons to love fresh flowers…
1. (above) Love these fuchsia anemones.
2. And this giant DIY bouquet is still one of my favorites.
3. Taping flowers to the wall never gets old. It looks so good.
4. Try this $2 mini message bouquet DIY, with newspaper wrap.
5. I need to expand my collection of glass vases, so I can create a flower cluster like this one.
6. And maybe I can use the extras to make a hanging flower chandelier.
7. Grab a few ranunculus and make a colorful boutonniere for special occasions.
8. Or try this alternative floral crown to make a statement.
What do you love most about fresh flowers? Is it the way they smell? How they look in your home? The reminder of the outdoors? I’d love to hear your perspective in the comments below.
P.S. I’m also starting work on a another series of flower DIYs soon, so if you have any flower related projects/ ideas that you’d really like to learn how to make, I’d love for you to let me know. The more info I can get the better.
