This chair is so unique that its simply adorable.  In addition to the ruffly curves, the chairs bright blue hue pairs wonderfully with the rustic wood walls of the room.  What do you think?

Ruffle Addiction

August 12, 2009 at 7:24 am (Inspiration) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

Ok, so this little thing I am having with ruffles, it might be more than just the shower curtain.  I thought ruffles were “too girly” for my taste, but either my taste changed just a smidge or these things are growing on me.  Don’t get me wrong, I would still probably pair them with something black or steel, but I do in fact love me some ruffles.  Here is what I have been craving lately:

These ruffle pillows struck me this morning as I was blog browsing.  Aren’t they so “sweet meets manly”?

These sandals from Target are calling my name as well. 

Then there is this wedding dress!  What can I say?  This is what I have been searching for!  Actually, the entire wedding was gorgeous and exactly what we had planned (until deciding to go away!) so check out the link to Grey Likes Weddings to see the entire thing!

So, what do you think?  The ruffles are totally funky, right?  Thought so.

Ruffles For Me

August 5, 2009 at 2:52 pm (Inspiration) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

So craving this entire bathroom right now!  I love the industrial look mixed with very feminine touches.  I’m sure you can all tell from the rest of my home that my style isn’t usually very feminine, but in small amounts I think it can be a great touch.

So, when I found the budget bathroom remodel in the Country Living magazine I was swooning!  Unfortunately, I can’t post pictures from their site here.  So, here’s the link: http://www.countryliving.com/homes/makeovers/budget-bathroom-makeover-0609?click=main_sr .  I particularly fell in love with the ruffled shower curtain from Anthropologie.  But, $98 was quite a bit out of our shower curtain budget.  So, I started searching…

Here is the curtain from Anthropologie:

And here is what else I found:
Ruffles Curtain by Target: http://www.target.com/gp/detail.html/179-2733649-8695932?ASIN=B000HPTSE2&AFID=Froogle&LNM=B000HPTSE2|Ruffles_Shower_Curtain&ci_src=14110944&ci_sku=B000HPTSE2&ref=tgt_adv_XSG10001

Ruffles Curtain by Target: http://www.target.com/gp/detail.html/179-2733649-8695932?ASIN=B000HPTSE2&AFID=Froogle&LNM=B000HPTSE2|Ruffles_Shower_Curtain&ci_src=14110944&ci_sku=B000HPTSE2&ref=tgt_adv_XSG10001

Very close, huh?  And both for under $30!!  I also found this one that I liked (but it was also $96):
In the end I went with Target.  It is on its way, so stay tuned to see how the cheaper version holds up in our newly styled bathroom!
P.S. We also loved a few other things from the Country Living article!  I am going to get the old fashioned looking toilet handle and possible try the corrugated metal as a backsplash to our new shower next year (also stay tuned for those updates! 🙂
