Friday Five: Interior Design Inspiration

We move in exactly ONE week! Get me out of this dump and into our beautiful home ASAP, please.

We've spent the last few weekends furniture shopping. We're not taking much with us, as what we currently have was a blend of our two former separate homes and we want to get new stuff that we pick out together.

And by together, I mean me picking it out and hubs nodding his approval.

Here five of my favorite inspiration pins that have helped guide me through the designing, selecting and buying process. I can't wait to share what our new place looks like!

1) I know this is a vanity, but the desk I bought is very similar to this, sans-mirror. I'm going to carve out a little blogging office corner in the playroom for myself, and want it girly!

2) Our new bedside tables are mirrored, kinda like this picture. It will look killer with some charcoal grey and silver studded chairs we got for the sitting area in the master bedroom!

3) Henry is getting his own playroom, in addition to his nursery, so that we can get all the baby crap out of the living and dining rooms! I love this mis-matched look. We've already got some red "shabby chic" chairs for a little kiddie table and I hope to add two more of a different color to complete the look.

4) I LOVE a bold wallpaper in a small space (in a large space it's a bit too... Overwhelming). We have a powder room near the playroom and kitchen, and I plan on papering the walls with something bold. I'm just not sure if it should be all four walls or an accent wall. Thoughts?

5) I love sentimental home accents! Since we've become official Texans, I'm loving this sweet pillow. Should it go on the couch, guest bed or get a few for the playroom?

Linking up with the ever amazing Karli and the BRIDE, Amanda! It's her wedding day, y'all!


  1. Happy Friday! Liking your interior inspiration! The mis-matched look will be great for the playroom. Best of luck with your move and have a good weekend :) Winks and Eyerolls

  3. AH! I'm SO excited about your new house. Can't wait to go shopping with you!

  4. So excited for you guys to move! Love that vanity as a desk and I actually really like the wallpaper. It's definitely made a comeback. And yes to the pillows for sure. I say guest bed. :)
    Have a great weekend my dear!

  5. I love the wallpaper but agree that it can be too overwhelming in a large room! I think it looks great on an accent wall.

  6. You must be so stoked for your move!!! Let the shopping commence! Make sure you got plenty of wine/coffee to keep you going lady.

  7. You have such good taste! I really like the idea of wallpaper in a small space. I was thinking of doing an accent wall in the bedroom. And that girly office desk is perfect. I actually really want a vanity because it would make me feel like I'm in the 1920s and how awesomely girly is it to get ready in front of one ...sigh one day.

  8. Good luck on the move! I know it can be stressful, and exhausting, but so worth it! Love that vanity as a desk. That should turn out so lovely. Thanks for linking up with us at H54F! Hope you're having a great weekend!

  9. Of course I pretty much love everything! We're wall-papering our powder room too and we're going to do all four walls but break it up with wainscoting on the bottom. So excited to watch your new house come together!

  10. Congratulations on the move! That's so exciting! My husband and I are trying to fix up our current place so we can sell it and get a little bit bigger of a place. I LOVE that vanity! So gorgeous!

  11. Choosing the right furniture is probably the most important decision you'll take for your interiors. A furniture can add style and elegant to your home come office. Furniture like sofa or rocker recliners are the most wanted pieces. You can try a rocker recliner for your home or take a review on best recliners.

  12. My living room is very small. Several of these amazing examples would work perfectly! Thank you, simmons recliners reviews
