10 Colors

I started reading Nomad by designer Sibella Court, and she said to begin designing a home based on 10 colors; you can use more colors of course, but the 10 colors will serve as a frame-work for the home. So I've begun collecting my 10 colors...this is what I have so far.

Owl Wallpaper from Anthropologie

Conner and I are stuck in Colorado for the summer to be with his family, and I'm glad to be here. I am a city girl and I do look forward to moving back to Austin, but since Dan died back in March, it's nice to be surrounded by people who knew him; it's nice to talk about him and hear other people's stories. I do miss him.

So, I've been working at the Fire Dept in Bayfield, CO and scoping out things for our new house...whenever that is. And I love this wallpaper from Anthropologie. Super cute.

Make Your Own Ipod Dock

I really want Conner to make an iVictrola for us. I figure he can handle the wooden bits and I'll conquer the electronic bits. Here's a tutorial for how to make your own ipod dock by Chris at ManMade.

Bedroom Color

I love this wall color. Might look really good in the bedroom, semi-dark and inviting. I was thinking about making a duvet cover while we're in Colorado and I might just keep this color in mind when I sew it up.

Luggage Chest DIY

We are all in upstate NY sorting out Dan's estate and well, it's rainy, not much is going on, and I'm design geeking out at the Alfred University library while the guy next to me is gaming geeking out. So, while plundering through Design Sponge again I found another DIY that I thought was pretty cool. I might just do this with a silver chest I've been hauling around for a while.

DIY Table

I love this splash o' colour! Maybe I'll give this a go when we move into our "Imperial Mansion" trailer in Arboles, CO for the summer. It'll be a tight space (although much bigger than our "bedroom on wheels" that we've been living in for the last year) and a skinny table like this might be perfect. Via Design Sponge.

Abigail Edwards Wallpaper

I was skimming through Design Sponge the other day and came upon all these great wallpaper designs. So here's another. It's cute, not sure if I'd put it in my house but I thought I'd note it anyway. Abigail Edwards...

Not sure where this image came's been lounging about waiting to be posted. I do love wainscoting though. I think it would look great in the bathroom with the pin-up wallpaper above. Oh my gosh! I can not wait to have our own house!
