'Five Things' Friday

Hello weekend! Today's round-up of my 'five things' is a mix of some of my latest Pins. I've felt a little uninspired lately and the following images have given me a little pep back in my design step! What's inspiring you lately?

One. This DIY stenciled china cabinet backing was done using foam board instead of actually stenciling the back! Genius, right?! Find out the details on Burlap & Blue.

Two. Aqua and coral is one of my favorite color combinations and this bedroom pulls it off perfectly 

Three. DIY Ottoman - this ottoman was made using a couple box cushions, or you can use floor or sofa cushions, a piece of wood cut to size and four casters. Simple enough. I'd love to try this out for my apartment living room (adding it to my never-ending DIY weekend project list). [Image Source]

Four. For whatever reason, this place setting instantly puts a smile on my face! Maybe it's the mix of Greek key with chevron - two of my favorite patterns, along with the scalloped gold charger and monogrammed detail on the place mat. A perfect mix of classic and modern styles. [Image Source]

Five. This rustic dining room is so dreamy and inviting. What a great space to share meals and great conversation with family and friends! [Image Source]

  2. I didn't even notice the brass hardware - thank you for pointing that out! It does looks incredible.

  3. agreed! that fabulous place setting put a smile on my face, too. No easy feat for a Sunday night. XX, Elle@
