Another Painted Porch

Remember the painted porch I posted about last week? I just found another painted floor and this one is just as beautiful.

Pretty today and it will continue to look good as it wears in, too. What a great way to define the space and make the bench and planters feel more like an outdoor room.

Bookcase With Bench

What do you see when you look at this photo –

a great built-in that houses books, a tv, and pretty knick knacks. But look what else is there – a desk space with a computer and a pull-out bench. I love this! When not in use, the bench is tucked in and the look is seamless. So clever, functional and pretty with that fun pop of color on the upholstered seat.

This is a must-save idea for my family room!

Painted Porch Floor

Over the weekend, we had the most gorgeous weather. It still seems hard to believe but spring is finally here and now summer doesn't feel so far away. Imagine a backyard barbecue and spending summer nights on a porch like this.

Did you notice the amazing floor? It's painted concrete and it is sensational.

Before and during shots:

Love the whole thing – from the pattern on the floor to the cafe lights above. So well done.

Anthropologie's Marbled Swing Stool Table

Anthropologie always has unique and interesting home items. Most are great additions to a room but some you actually want to design your room around. Like this table, for example.

So cool and with such pretty details. How would you use this in your home? As a casual eating spot, a cards/games table, or for something else?

Family Room Inspiration

Hello, perfect family room.

Here's what I love about it – the room is light and bright, filled with neutral furnishings and just a few pops of color. It is pulled together and pretty, yet warm, comfortable and inviting.

There's some clever decorating going on in that room, too. Did you notice the upholstered footstools under the coffee tables? I love that detail!
