Have you heard of Spoonflower?! I have seen it mentioned on other blogs here and there but it wasn't until recently that I truly fell in love with it.  I know it's been around for a while so I feel a little behind the times but what else it new? Hopefully some of you are also in the dark and I can help introduce you :)

Spoonflower is an online shop where you can submit your own digital designs and have them printed as your very own custom fabric (within a week or two)! Not so creative? You can browse through the crazy amount of already designed fabrics. My favorite designer featured in the shop is Holli Zollinger - definitely check her out! Did I mention that the prices are pretty ridiculous too?

Wedding Obsession

Even though my wedding is almost 2 months away I am still obsessed with looking at wedding blogs! I have almost everything planned yet I can't stay away!! It's like when they tell you to stop looking at dresses once you've found yours. I really need to STOP looking at other weddings. It is an illness.

My wedding won't look anything like these but I have to share their beauty with you anyway. Sometimes I just want to start planning all over again so I can go a whole other direction. As my fiancĂ© would say...I'm never satisfied.  As sad as that sounds it sometimes rings true. But in all seriousness, I know that no matter what this wedding looks like it is going to be the best day of my life. I have made a promise to myself to not worry about the design and just focus on the true meaning of the day....the two of us.

But back to the design....

Design Manifest: Rast Hack

As promised I want to share another fabulous blog with you (since I can't seem to focus on my own these days!).  The uber talented Naomi of Design Manifest not only has a great design eye but is a master at DIY projects. Look at how she turned these plain Ikea dressers into stylish Asian-inspired beauties!! I have to try this one day.

You can find her step by step instructions here.

Powerful Pocket Doors

When I think of pocket doors I think about flat faced, hard to maneuver pieces of wood that would always get stuck in the wall (apparently that's what I grew up with). Fortunately times have changed. No can argue that they definitely serve a purpose. They are ideal for small spaces and allow a room to have an open concept with the option to close it off.  So why not pay more attention to their design?!

These doors have opened up my eyes to the world of possibilities...

Jacqui Getty Beauty

The wedding is only 65 days away and I can't seem to focus on anything non-wedding related!

So here's an oldie but goodie for you to drool over. This is the Hollywood home of Jacqui Getty previously featured in C Magazine. I adore the vibrant pops of color and personal touches spread throughout!

Darling Doormats

I was over at Matchbook Mag and they turned me on to these fabulous doormats that Garnet Hill has come out with. They greet your guests with a touch of whimsy. I absolutely love them! Now if only I had a front porch....
