Coastal Blueprint Posters

These coastal blueprint posters measure 12″ x 12″ and depict both nautical animals and structures.

The first shows a lighthouse, sailboat, and anchor, and the second an octopus, seahorse, and crab.

True, they’re more map-like than blueprint-like, but, either way, if I had a beach house, this art would be on the walls.

Modern Bird Throw Pillows in Teal and Mint

I love all shades of blue, but especially light blues like teal.  So these modern bird-themed pillows really appealed to me, even though, technically, some of them feature more of a mint than a teal.

Either way, check out these amazing designs:

Trendy Mint Gray Vintage Modern Floral Bird Throw Pillow

Bird silhouette Pillow

Teal Tribal Bird Pillow

Pattern with birds and trees pillow

Retro whimsical floral pattern 2 throw pillows

Stylish Rugs for Kids

Dexter Rug, Neutral/Blue

In both of my kids’ rooms, I really feel like the rugs pulled everything together.

In the animal nursery, the rug matched the crib comforter, and in my toddler’s “big girl room,” we found a patterned rug that pulled colors from her comforter and was bordered in the purple shade in which I’d painted her walls.

Either way, rugs are a fun element to add to a room. Even a carpeted one. Which is why I’m sharing these gorgeous rugs. Hopefully they’ll inspire some fun for your little one’s bedrooms and playrooms!

 Calf Rug, Ivory/Multi

Boxy Rug, Green/Pink

Nora Rug, Green/Neutral/Blue

Cassandra Rug, Purple/Aqua

Shabby Chic Diana Bench

Shabby Chic Off-White Diana Bench with Carved Birch Frame

When I first saw this bench I nearly fell out of my chair.

I mean:  whoa.  Talk about elegant shabby chic!

The lines and shape of this piece are amazing.  The carvings on the birch frame are beautifully intricate.  The off-white of the upholstery makes it casual but still fresh.

I am absolutely entranced.  I wish I had somewhere to put the Diana Bench in my home.

Where would you put it in yours?
