Can't Get Out of My Mind

Sometimes there are just a few images that make you go "Yes! This is it!"

That is what these are for me lately...

Art Deco Wallpaper...

This vignette from Steven Gambrel. I just love the layers of different shades of blue. The soft Jade walls paired with inky blue and turquoise is lovely. I'm thinking this will be the color scheme for our hall bath after renovations are done.

And Lastly...

The newest from Angie Hranowsky.

As usual she perfectly mixes saturated colors with a hint of Mid Century Modern appropriately paired with Madeleine Wienrib rugs.

My Favorite Thing: New Chairs!

I stopped by one of my favorite antique stores Thursday with high hopes.

They did not disappoint!

You won't believe how much I scored these chairs for!

$40 for all 4!

What the what!

They are in amazing shape. The cane is perfect, the cushions are sturdy, they don't creak at all. They even say made in Denmark on the bottom. 

And when I'm ready, I can easily cover the seats myself. Win!

I also scored...

$10, hand blown pitcher

$10, Chinese porcelain vase

$5, alabaster figurine

$5, wood carved frame. I'm already thinking about what should go in it.

That's some deals yo!

I brought home these cherry blossom branches after a shoot at work last week.

They look great on my coffee table.

I started the first layer of a HUGE painting for my office.

I am already loving it.

How has your week been?

Happy Friday!

How About Some Ketchup?

Long time no see, friends. My bad...

This is going to be a stream of consciousness post. Hope you don't mind.

I'm thinking of getting this rug for my living room.

What are your thoughts?

I like the black and white of course. But I can't have too much white because, animals. Plus there's a pattern but it's still subtle. Since I have a lot going on with art and pillows and stuff.

I'm considering this coffee table. It's only $30. It probably needs to be painted. It's not my dream coffee table but until I can afford that I need something.

Not sure what color I would paint it.

I'm thinking of this fabric for curtains in the living room. I think the black would feel quite dramatic. It's a nice silk dupioni with embroidered quatrefoil. 
I got the Docksta table for my breakfast nook like I wanted. Found it on the craig for $100. Score!

I can't get this image out of my mind. Wouldn't it be awesome to find another one and do this?! Wouldn't it!!!

Husband thinks he could build a floating bench like so. The man is a winner.

Did a little fabric shopping last weekend. Childress was full of awesome. These large scale chevrons were quite nice. Full disclosure: I don't like chevron. I know, I know. It's just not for me but I do appreciate it.

This fabric was so gorgeous. Light colored base with a beautiful blush pink pattern. It feels a bit modern to me. Not too expensive either, I think it was $18/yard. Considering it as curtains for my office. 

You can see the fabric I'm looking at for LR curtains below in another colorway.

Also I dyed my hair red and I have bangs now. Not a great pic but it's the best I've gotten so far.

I was ready for a change from my au-natural brown, lovely as it was!

Also I'm on instagram now, follow me brandi_fow!

And...where do you ladies like to shop for bikinis? I decided not to buy a cheap one from Target for the millionth time. But now I don't know where to look! Help!

So, what's up with you?

Oh, and Happy Valentine's Day Lovers!
