In keeping with my sporadic blogging of late, I just wanted to pop in and share a few of my favorite things right now. This may be short, but I assure you, all five things are super sweet!
1.) This “French Country Writing Desk” from Belle Escape.
It comes in a ton of colors and even though my husband loathes it, I love it enough to make up for his disdain. (Sorry for the odd picture format, I couldn’t get it to crop evenly).
2.) This gorgeous slab I saw last week when doing some granite selection with a client.
Well, actually, it’s two slabs. See the reflection of the man for scale – they’re huge! I wish I remembered the name of the stone but all I can recall is the word “azure.”
3.) Easter Eggs/Family Crafts
We did some family egg dyeing last weekend, and I thought I was very clever when I taped off an egg and made an abstract landscape:
Then I walked around the table to check on my husband, and he TOTALLY showed me up with his PAINTING of our cat. Unbelievable. But he is talented! Do I even need to mention that instead of using a regular, pedestrian hard-boiled egg like my son and I did, he drilled a hole into his and literally blew out all of the insides?…of course I don’t.
Here are the finished eggs:
4.) Graphic patterns with bold colors.
This is a detail from a restaurant in Chattanooga, Tennessee called Milk and Honey (their website sports the same colors. Excellent gelato.) Right up my alley! This has been a long lasting combo, and I hope it sticks around.
5.) This video, which creatively applies the aesthetic of filmmaker Wes Anderson to the classic, Forest Gump.
Spot on, perfection.
Hope you enjoy at least some of the same things! Have a great rest of the week!
