Guest Room Dreaming

ebb + flow :: new west elm rug

On Friday afternoon, a home item I’ve been brainstorming, second guessing and pondering arrived: a new guest room rug! While it shouldn’t have been that big of a decision, it became one as I had the hardest time committing. Because the room is a catch-all of furniture right now, I wanted a rug that would help the room take shape and now that it’s in place I’m overflowing with fun ideas for the space. It will be a winter project for the months ahead, but in the meantime, here are a few items I’d love to add to the mix. And this too, of course. Keep you posted!

This chair stopped me dead in my tracks today. While it may not entice you go plop down after a long day of work and enjoy some trash television, it definitely entices me to put on some great shoes, pour a simple drink and chat alongside friends. Not a bad vibe to give with just a few simple curves.

ebb + flow :: weekend wrap up

This has been the perfect fall weekend! The temperatures have been ideal, the sun is shining and we’ve been spending time with family and friends over bowls of chili, pumpkin carving and football games. If that doesn’t scream fall, I don’t know what does. The fun continues today as I’m running out the door to assemble Halloween costumes! Be sure to check Instagram next Friday. I’m sure they’ll be a post! Until then, enjoy these links from around the web.

Two Days

ebb + flow :: weekend time

Talk about a slow-moving week, eh? For some reason the days seems to crawl by, the nights were to short and I am oh-so ready for an evening of baking, an autumn stroll and a movie. Sounds pretty perfect right about now. Hope you’re able to indulge in the season this weekend and check back on Sunday for the wrap up. See you then, friends!

In-Between Season

October 21, 2014

ebb + flow :: in between seasons

We’ve reached that magical time of year when the sun beams into your eyes on the way to and from work, when you need the heat in the morning and air conditioner in the afternoon, when layers are your new best friend… you know the drill. As the days of bare legs are winding down I was inspired by these two monochromatic looks. Chunky knits and classic knits are definitely things I’m into. Bring on the unpredictable Midwest temps, I’ll be ready!

Weekend Wrap Up 10.19

October 19, 2014

ebb + flow :: weekend wrap up

Yesterday started out so innocently. I carved out some time to finally paint the trim in the dining room white (you know, the never-ending quest I’m on to make our trim match… riveting stuff) and during the process, I noticed that our poor wallpaper was looking pretty sad. Even after install, it was never quite right. Our 90-year old walls are uneven, hard to adhere to and unpredictable, to say the least. So, in a fit of rage, I tore down all the wallpaper yesterday. As a testament to how poorly the product and our walls played together, the sheets came off in one big piece from crown molding to baseboard. Probably the easiest removal ever, but now I’ve got torn up dining room and very little time to address it. Woops! Off to Ace now to figure out next steps. Enjoy these links while I bug my favorite hardware workers.
