Wednesday and Home Decor....

Happy Hump-Day!

All of the fantasy party planning from yesterday's post got me to thinking... thinking about home decor. I haven't seen any pieces on the home sites that I frequent that I LOVE so I thought I would peruse some home furnishing sites. I am a big fan of all things home decor and furniture related. When the BF and I walk in the evenings we both comment on homes in the neighborhood that we like and I would love to tour some of my favorites (creepy I know, but I always wonder if the homes are as nice and beautiful on the inside as they are out on the outside). There was a home show in Lexington a few weeks ago but it only spotlighted kitchens. Now, I have nothing against kitchens but the whole oven and refrigerator thing (I do love dishes though...) doesn't really do it for me, I would much rather look at linens and other non-cooking furniture.

I found these beauties from Pottery Barn. Thoughts?

Love the patterned chairs! I guess kitchen items can be fun as long as no stainless steel appliances are involved...

Glass canisters are GREAT for easy decorating....

LOVE LOVE LOVE the tray (and its monogrammed, always a plus)...

If I had seen these linens before I moved into my new apt I would have definitely purchased the duvet and monogrammed sheet set...

These linens are also nice, I really like the red tones in the print...

Overall it has been a relaxing evening. I have made my Target lists for this weekend (Target trips will be made in between pool-side lounging dates with the BF) and I am on the hunt for some new cleaning supplies (slightly boring, I know) and I am excited. I felt almost lame today because I rushed home from work to start my laundry, yes laundry. No worries, my laundry is neatly folded and has been put away. I just always feel so much better when things are neat and tidy and in there proper place. I lived in filth freshman year in college (UK has a terrible dorm situation and no matter how much you clean it is still nasty) and looking back on it I don't know how I didn't have a constant nervous twitch. I tell myself that I was having too much fun to even think about the cleanliness of the dorm, and I guess thats right. With Mallory coming to UK and living in the dorm I am afraid that I may have painful flashbacks of the 20 year old carpet and the gross furniture that is bolted to the floor. 

Leaving you with the positive image of campus living... I hope everyone has had a wonderful Wednesday! 

The weekend is almost here!
LOVE, MKH
