Thanks for all the love on our home office reveal yesterday! Finishing that room was like a huge weight lifted from my shoulders (unfinished projects give me major anxiety!) and the biggest gift at the same time. The hours between my “morning sickness” are starting to lengthen, sometimes even into a full day, and with the warming temps, and a little more energy–I suddenly have the urge to clean the entire house and open all the windows and finish all the projects!
Speaking of, we’re finishing ordering everything for the girls’ bathroom this weekend (before we share the mood board next week) and we’ve been really wrestling with a decision. We have 60″ of space for a vanity–a standard size. We were originally going to fit a vanity with two sinks in the space since the girls will be sharing this bathroom, until one of our readers (thanks, Meredith!) suggested in the comments of this post that we should consider keeping just one sink because counter space is more valuable. We’d love to hear your thoughts and experience in the comments! I have thought and thought and gone back and forth and am stuck in indecision on this one.
Other fun things this week:
• The outdoor couches we purchased last year for our deck from World Market is in stock again! Because it is such a great price, and simple design, it will sell out quickly again. Their new wood slat deep bench is in my cart. Heart. Eyes. This weekend only (until March 13th) you can save an extra 30% off anything online or in-store, plus free shipping on $100+ with code FRIENDS. This makes each outdoor sofa only $279 shipped! Run, run, run!
•This article is full of 16 “mind-blowing” illusions, but most are also great lessons in color theory! It never ceases to amaze me how putting certain colors next to each other can completely change the way we see them.
• @thisismyartgig is an artist I recently started following on Instagram after she did this sweet illustration of our bedroom! I’m head over heels for all of her paintings. The plants, the people! It’s so good.
• Ever since seeing Gwen’s pretty blossoming branches in her dining room–from her own yard! Lucky duck!–I’ve been wishing they were fake so that could buy some and infuse a little spring into our house. I found these faux flowering branches that look remarkably similar.
Have a great weekend, everyone!
