Master Bedroom Inspiration Boards

Working on a new master bedroom remodel on the North Shore.  They already owned a pretty ornate wood carved bed frame so I'm working on pulling the rest of the room together.  Going for rustic modern.   Definitely wanted to add a pair of modern mirrored bedside tables and I love the idea of a lantern or pendant floating between the four post bed.  The goal is to keep the rest of the room lighter since the bed is such a heavy piece in the room.

Here are some of my inspiration boards I created for presentation.

Condo Rental

Would you like to live in the beautiful town of Lake Forest?  
We can help make that happen.

We are moving come Dec. 5th into our first "home" and are looking for great renters to reside in our 2 bedroom 2 bath condo just north of downtown Lake Forest, IL.  We absolutely love this community and think you would too.

Here are some of the highlights of 1301 N. Western Ave Unit 124:
Totally renovated with a large kitchen and open family room.  Kitchen is equipped with stainless steel appliances, black absolute granite, mahogany wood island and more than enough storage space.
All hardwood flooring throughout.  Marble tile in master bath with a double vanity and large dressing room.  Extra storage space in unit.  Laundry is across the hall with 3 washer/ dryers that makes laundry a breeze.  2 outdoor parking spaces close to exterior door.  The building is very clean and we have a great building manager who watches over the property like it's his own.  Great parks in walking distance, along with the metra train and the most charming town.

If you are interested please email Amy at aleafblad@mac.com for more information.

Vintage Shopping

There's a new shop in town and I finally got a chance to stop in today!  Re-Imagined Vintage in Lake Bluff carries an assortment of vintage furniture, accessories, lighting and small finds.  The mother- daughter owned shop is quaint and perfectly arranged.  It's a must see if you are in the area.

I picked up a few small vintage metal letters for my office and would absolutely love to have this fabulous vintage chair they recovered in small dotted fabric. (featured below)

For more information check out their FB page or they are also on Etsy.

Stars and Stripes

Happy Fourth of July

I have an appreciation for stars and stripes not only because I'm American but 
because I love the design & shape.  I have stars in my sons room, a star ornament on my front door and I wear stripes like it's going out of style.  Here are some fun products inspired by the good old USA.

A Coral Kick

  This Spring season you are seeing more coral tones in fashion and in home decor.  I've noticed in my own closet over the last several months this gravitation to coral. I'm on a coral kick!

What is the perfect color combination with coral?  I think navy and/or teal make a perfect pair. 
Here are a few color boards and product inspiration to get you on a coral kick too!   

Happy Spring.

Easy & Yummy Lactation Cookies

These cookies are suggested for mothers who are breastfeeding to increase their milk supply but they are also good enough for the whole family to eat.  Don't worry you won't produce milk just because you eat these. :)

I was buying Milkmakers Cookies which are delicious but can be a little costly after awhile.  If you are a skeptic they actually do increase your milk supply but I do eat a few a day.  

My close friend shared this delicious recipe with me and they were so easy to make so give it a try. 

1 cup butter (replace with applesauce if you are dairy free)
1 cup sugar (cut in ½ to save on sugar intake)
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar (cut in ½ for less sugar)
4 TB water (add a little more if it's too dry)
2-4 TB flax seed meal
2 eggs (I only used one)
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups flour (Can use a ½ whole wheat)
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
3 cups oats
1 cup chocolate chips(vegan chocolate chips if dairy free) 
2-4 TB brewer’s yeast
*Optional to jazz it up use crasins or raisins

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Mix all ingredients together.  Bake for 10-13 minutes.

Baby's First Christmas Gift Guide

Since it's my sons first Christmas, I researched many 0-3 and 6 month gift options for him.
Even though he won't remember his gifts this year, we still had to indulge to get him a few gifts that he will enjoy now and grow into.

Merry Christmas
