'Five Things' Friday

So happy the weekend is finally here! Today I'm continuing my 'Five Things' series, where I share with you the latest things inspiring me, current projects and anything else that's recently caught my eye. Wishing you a fantastic weekend :) xoxo - Julie

One. A snapshot of the art wall I just completed for an employee lounge at a clothing company. I can't wait to show you the rest of the space once it's finished! [See more on Instagram: juliethigpen]

Two. These simple DIY Easter eggs were decorated with temporary tattoos and they look beautiful! [Image Source: Country Living]

Three. Another DIY project to add to my (never ending) list! Came across this canvas silhouette project on Pinterest, created by Christina Williams. Go here for details.

Four. I love this little nook for so many reasons! The oversized wing back chair in one of my favorite Schumacher fabrics / the glossy red dutch door / the great use of an awkward corner with custom built shelves / the warm wall color, Chocolate Souffle by Ralph Lauren.

Five. Such a fun and interesting way to display a beautiful book collection! [Image via Pinterest]



  1. Great job with the Art wall you designed, it's so fun and inspiring! Looking forward to seeing the complete design. If we all could be so lucky to have a lounge like this at work! Love visiting your blog!
    Belle Design,

  2. Love the book wall how fab! Great job on the wall you created! xx

  3. Wowww I love the look of the benches in the lounge...are those upholstered headboards?! Brilliant.

    1. Yep, you guessed right! We ordered the upholstered headboards online from Target and attached them to the benches which came from Overstock. It was a budget project so I had to get creative!

  4. Beautiful art wall! And those eggs are absolutely gorgeous- who would have thought it would be so simple!

  5. i love those eggs and the idea of using temp tatoos seems so easy peasy! I'm going to try that! also, i have seen that little nook before with the great high back chair....LOVE it and also love the red door to the right!!!

  6. I LOVE the employee lounge! Must be a great company to give so much attention to the people who work there. Looking forward to seeing what else you're doing!

  7. I love the employee wall you did takes a lot of talent to get the right mix of objects like you did, great job :)

  8. Wow! Thanks for sharing these...So much inspiration!
