green

color story: moss + pink

Pink has always been a chic, feminine color.  But using pink in your home doesn’t have to say, “hey look at me, I’m a girls bedroom!”  If it feels too girly for your taste, jazz it up with mossy green to create a fun, welcoming space!

These colors tend to create a more traditional feel, but depending on the patterns and textures used, the look lean towards bohemian, modern, or tropical.

garden lust

It seems like the rest of the world is on the brink of going back to school or breaking out the fall boots, and out here in Texas-land we are at the peak of our summer heat.  My grass has turned 50 shades of brown as the temps climb over 100 degrees here each day.  Rain? What’s that?  I’m not sure, because we haven’t seen any in months.  🙂 Neither have my poor plants.  I struggle to keep them alive as it is, and this drought is not helping.

ferns. ferns. ferns.

 

So, on this lovely Monday morning, I have been seeking out inspiration in the form of beautiful exteriors and greenery.  I’m gushing green gardens,  pining perfect patios, and lusting luscious landscapes. (say that 3 times fast!)

Would you like to join me as I daydream?

This is so fun.  Borderline crazy, but fun.

Wouldn’t it be so awesome if your patio looked like this?

Really loving this landscape with cactuses mixed in:

Does anybody out there have a herb garden? Are they easy to grow?  I really like this vertical style on I saw on Pinterest:

My goal for next spring is to do our walkway with large cement blocks, river rocks, and desert plants and grasses…. kinda like this type of look.

I wonder if these planter boxes are hard to make….?

color story: peach + emerald

Bold emerald green matched with soft peach is both flirty and fierce!   I’m loving these 2 colors together.

(It’s past my bedtime, and I’m sleepy.  So instead of attempting to come up with witty captions, I’ll show you pretty pictures and your imagination can take it from there 🙂 )
