Finding great pieces to hang on your wall can be difficult, yet so easy if you know where to look. Love the idea of having these two hang on my studio wall someday — side by side. Having the perfect prints can make any room, well, perfect — but for my creative space, it is especially important to have ones that inspire me to keep going and brew creativity endlessly.

I know I’m not the only one who has been suffering with winter blues. With spring so close, so nearly touchable, I feel like doing a little dance — but then I’m reminded that we still have at least another month to go before we start feeling any big changes. At least here in the northwest. We have little breaks of sunshine here and there, but for the most part, it’s still chilly and gloomy. So what do I do? I jump on Pinterest and go crazy for spring in image format. Here are some of my favorite pins right now:

There are just some people who are amazingly talented at food styling and photography. Coming across Svetlana Karner on Instagram was one of my happy moments because it steered me towards her blog to see even more and get inspired. And now you all have to go see her talent over on her site and her Happy Living blog. I posted just a few snaps from her blog, but there’s a whole lot more to love:

With the arrival of our little one just nine weeks away, I’m still brainstorming all the details I want to put into the nursery. Currently, it’s still a disaster zone and I’m hoping in the next few weeks we can clear out all the extra bits and start organizing everything baby in there. Below are some fun details I want to incorporate into the space:

    So, so lovely! I am all about neutral tones mixed with soft pastels in a babies room—nothing too jarring. Love the handmade/crafty feel the paper mobile would give the room. Such a fun time! I’m sure the room will come out beautiful. You can always add/change things along the way!

fresh white spaces

With spring coming up, I’m looking forward to freshening up my home with sweet touches. Since we moved in at the end of last summer, we did lots of remodeling work to get where we are today. Even though we still have lots to do, like paint all the trim white, redo the hardware floors, landscape the yard, finish painting some rooms, and so forth — I think I’m more eager to get some curtains hung up, buy little canisters for the kitchen counters, get my dream coffee table finally custom built with a matching bookshelf, buy a rug or two, add some more potted green plants to the home, and the list goes on. I remember before we moved in, I was set on having all the “big” things done before I could call this place home, but after several months living here, I realized it’s not about the big things but the small things that make a place feel cozy and inviting. So here’s to spring cleaning before the baby arrives and adding some fresh touches to the home!
