I can’t believe we are about to wrap up April. Didn’t Spring just start? This week was full of surprises and beautiful weather here in San Francisco. Head here to catch up on the Golden Gate bridge hike I took on Sunday. Anyone ever been? If not, here ya go.
Around the home front, it’s been one detail at a time, putting some finishing touches on my work from home space – that was both affordable and gorgeous. It’s icing on the cake that this desk doubles as a display bookcase when not in use. What’s not to love. Head over here to check out the full details.
Now, on to my current obsessions:
- I know we love coffee – don’t we? But, there is nothing worse than cold coffee when you want it hot and visa-versa. If you are like me you are a slow drinker so this YETI to-go mug is the literal best(est) ever. It literally keeps my coffee warm all day. Grab one quick.
DIY – Float Shelf Update
- Most of ya know, I am right in the middle of installing a new float shelf in my Bathroom. And, because I just love to be busy, started my DIY Board and Batten accent wall in my stairwell walk-thru space. With that being said I am also considering wallpaper and a patio refresh. EEEK. It’s so fun (and so much) but that’s ok. Click the links above to catch up on the progress. Speaking of wallpaper…..Check out my favorite wallpaper design (so far) for my stairwell so far – Voyeur. What do y’all think? Do we have a winner? It’s gonna be tough
- Okay, I feel like everyone should just have frog tape in bulk. Why? Because it’s useful in literally every DIY project I have ever done; painting, visualization, space planning, catching dust, securing objects in place etc. The list goes on and on. Guys, keep this on hand.
- I think y’all know, I have a full-time job and Instagram! It’s a lot. But I love em both. As such, I spend a lot of time at my desk. I rounded up a few affordable and favorite desks that get the 136home stamp of approval. Check em’ out and let me know your favorite.
- Always lot’s of requests for my home sources. This week I was surprised to get a ton of messages asking about the profile narrow display bookcase I have in my living room next to my fireplace. She really is a beauty and I love how she is the perfect place to display my favorite thrifted finds. Grab one here.
- This weeks inspo post winner is literally the cutest room I have ever seen. It reminds me of a Pixar movie. I found via @design_of_day This feed is just such a good time.
