Pinterest Wednesday

Hello Wednesday. I am having a great time in Arlington and excited to head home to Atlanta tomorrow. Today I am linking up with Jamie at This Kind of Love for What I Am Loving Wednesday.

 I am Loving seeing my friends and enjoying all the aspects of D.C life I have been missing. I had Sweet Green for lunch and stopped at Red Mango for frozen yogurt.

I am Loving the warm weather down here. I wore a sundress today and it was glorious.

I am Loving the fact that I will see my family this weekend.

I am Loving the fact that we get the keys to our house on Thursday. I am so tired of temporary housing and can't wait to unpack.

I am Loving my husband for moving all of our stuff out of storage without me.

Link Up number two is with the always wonderful Michelle at The Vintage Apple for Oh, How Pinteresting. I hope y'all can handle more home decor posts.

Today I stopped into Anthropologie, Crate and Barrel, West Elm and just generally imagined that I had an infinite budget for decorating.

I love this color palette. The lamp is such a great shape. I have become obsessed with frames with large white matting. Ikea has some cute and very cheap versions.

I love these West Elm kitchen towels. The patterns are so bright and cheerful. We have a red color scheme in our kitchen, so those red towels would be perfect. 

simple + elegant

I love this gold mirror and the hydrangeas. This room is so fresh and light. I love all the plants and think they add so much to the room. I am going to get some succulents and other easy to care for plants for the house.

I love these Anthropologie hooks. They would be adorable in the front entryway. I want to get WELCOME  but am trying to find a cheaper version.

I still love the chalk board trend. Some people have done an entire wall in chalk board paint, but I think I want to do something smaller like this. It would be so fun to change the message for parties or just with the seasons.

Our bed is a dark wood with crisp white bedding. I love the look of this room, but the blue walls are probably out of the question. We can paint the house, but only if we want to repaint before we move out.

 I love this gallery style wall, and it also has the larger matting that I love. I am in major nesting mode, and can't wait to get all my belongings out of boxes. 

I plan to unpack like crazy for a few weeks so we don't lose motivation. I am afraid if we put it off, stuff will just stay in boxes for years. We have to fight our inner pack rats and make sure we go through everything. 

I would love any tips about unpacking or setting up a house for the first time. 


  1. Ahh! I LOVE those pins! (Particularly that chalk board mantel!)

  2. oh man, going into all 3 of those stores would be dangerous!! love all this house inspiration :)

  3. I am loving the look of teal and white! White has definitely inspired me to re-do my rooms.. mainly office!

    Oh the joy of what you're doing!!!!

  4. I have a giant chalkboard frame like that one, and now I want to put it over the mantle!!

  5. This makes me want to decorate so so so bad!
