i love daniel’s style and blog so much – but after recently buying an old fixer upper, i had no idea he could make the kitchen this good this fast. i am swooning over every element in this room!
check out the huge transformation.
he DIYed the butcher block counters (they’re not really functional to chop on but still look amaze), he did all the subway tiling himself, fixed the ceiling, and used cheap pegs as hardware to save money. oh man i want to own a house and not do anything nearly as good as this. check out the full process here.
like i was saying last week – i’ve spent almost zero time fixing up or organizing the office since we moved in. but last weekend, i bought a bulletin board from target and it already makes a huge difference.
i’ve been having so much fun pinning up memories and inspiration. like too much fun.
and speaking of too much, you know you’re a huge dork when you are ecstatic about your new screensaver. OMG. i love my new screensaver you guys.
for some reason, i am always unhappy with the state of my workspace. ALWAYS. because i am a packrat. and i have crap everywhere. and the room never looks filled with plants and cute desk accessories ever. it’s full of cat hair and opened envelopes and amazon boxes.
did i mention i am really getting over the vintage shop? i was so into it when i started it up that i overlooked how much space it would take up – there is inventory everywhere and boxes and popcorn and tape and i hate it. now that i’m done with summer trips, i am going to focus on getting the room that i’m too embarrassed to even show you into better shape. starting with … getting rid of the etsy shop. i’m going to do some sort of sale to try to clear everything out and if you live in LA and would be interested in purchasing vintage home decor, let me know and i’ll plan this for real.
until then – here are some perfect workspaces.

and if money were no object, i’d buy all of these items right now and be super happy.
one . the chair i will never buy but always lust after
two . these collapsable trash bins are space saving and so pretty
three . a leather hanging plant holder? so in
four . it always helps to organize in pretty containers
five . this simple white file cabinet is nice enough to not hide in the closet
six . lovely headphones for when gideon doesn’t want to listen to the dirty dancing soundtrack with me
seven . an exit sign at the door would help remind me i can leave
eight . it gets crazy hot in our apartment and we’re always fighting over the oscillation on our little fan
nine . cords are everywhere in the office. i wish they made usb versions of these.
wood, enamelware and stripes. pretty much the perfect kitchen combo in my mind.
we saw the pepper grinder at a little kitchen store in france, and gideons been complaining about ours, so i bought it for his birthday online. and it’s gorgeous and wonderful.

morgan satterfield of the brick house & sharon montrose of the animal print shop teamed up to create this gorgeous nursery that i would have no problem sleeping in a crib for.
that is one lucky baby.
