Hello again, Remodelaholics! What started out as a beautiful spring-like week has ended in SNOW here… no matter how many years I live in Utah, I’m not sure I’ll ever get used to this springtime tradition, haha! For this week’s Friday Favorites, we have some amazing projects to show you, like XXXX (Remember, our Remodelaholics Anonymous link sharing has now moved over to our blogger group on Facebook, and we have a new Remodelaholics Anonymous group for anyone, blog or not, to join and share projects, ask questions, and get inspired!)
Favorite kid-friendly space: It’s easy to focus sometimes on making a space beautiful without remembering to make it for kids, real kids! Abbotts at Home did a great job on her boys’ room, and this magnet and lego board makes an awesome play area!
Favorite reason to dust: I jest, because every time we post pictures of a beautiful wall treatment like this, we are inundated with comments about all the dusting it would require! I can’t say this lattice wall treatment would dust itself, but doesn’t it add such beautiful interest to an otherwise comfy but basic nook?! Get the tutorial for a similar style trellis wainscot here. (Photo ©Remodelaholic | Home built by Millhaven Homes, Designed by Millhaven Interiors)
PS: We found a similar quatrefoil pendant light here, if you love that, too!
Favorite blues: I love the look of the blue and white porcelain — and some of these are even hand-painted by Lantern Lane Designs! Can you guess which ones?
Favorite delicious flavor: If you love pineapple, what do you think of this floral pineapple doormat! Doesn’t it look like summer just rolled up to the doorstep?
Favorite not-white interior: Yeah, the walls are still white, but the dark cabinetry gives this home office a dramatic flair and so much character! What’s your favorite part? (Photo ©Remodelaholic | Home built by Brinkerhoff Construction)
Favorite closet: Having an organized closet is always the goal… but usually more of a far-off goal than a realistically achieved goal in this house… Queen Bee of Honey Dos built and installed this amazing custom closet organizer, and she’s sharing her tips for not only designing and installing it, but saving money while doing it!
Favorite wallpaper: This classic herringbone pattern gives @theheartandhaven’s breakfast nook a POW! And it looks a lot like the faux wallpaper we painted live with y’all here, so great minds decorate alike!
PS: If you haven’t browsed the #imaremodelaholic tag over on Instagram, you are missing out on some beautiful spaces by talented people!
It’s officially been a year since I started my IG account, so its fitting to share my breakfast nook since this is where it all began. _________________________ Our kitchen reno had been complete for over a year and my sister kept on telling me I HAD to post it to Instagram. I had no idea how to even post a picture but more than that, I was so apprehensive about putting myself out there. What if no one liked my style? Would people think I was full of myself? What if I was a failure? You mean I have to clean my house now just to take pictures?! _________________________ Seriously though, it’s crazy how we can defeat ourselves before even trying, how we can be our own worst critics, how we can have so much self-doubt. But then I thought about what I try to instill in my children: perseverance, confidence, the willingness to try new things, following their passion. So here I am. __________________________ I’ve found so much support and encouragement from this talented IG community. I’m inspired by you and really lifted up by the kindness here. So many boss ladies and boss lady mommas sharing their heart and their creativity. __________________________ If you are still reading this, THANK YOU for following along. And, more importantly, does this mean I get to eat cake?! • • • • • • • • http://liketk.it/2vb3T #liketkit @liketoknow.it #LTKhome @liketoknow.it.home #apartmenttherapy #bhghome #sodomino #myscoutandnimble #homewithrue #myhousebeautiful #inmydomaine #myoklstyle #smpliving #howwedwell #theeverygirl #smmakelifebeautiful #currenthomeview #mytradhome #ruffledblog #flashesofdelight #kitcheninspo #wallpaper #imaremodelaholic #nestingwithgracefeature #cljsquad #cottonstemheartsnooks #sharemecrystalanninteriors #serenaandlily #beckiowensfeature #lcdotcomloves #thedesigntwinslove
Favorite reason to bust out the paint trays: Vinyl flooring can last forever, but the aesthetics are not so long-lasting… so why not PAINT it! Cherished Bliss painted hers to look like cement tile and it’s so beautiful in her laundry room!
