I have this thing with floors.

After posting some sneak peaks of flooring/rugs on instagram, I was reminded about a few accounts I love that do a fantastic job of stretching the mind’s perspective and challenging you to see your life from different angles. I enjoy every post so thought I should pass it along:)

Bedroom Overhaul – Phase 2

Circlular Mirror | IHODDome lamp | In Honor of DesignIn Honor of Design

After we painted the walls and got the room ready for a fresh start, we planned out which furniture pieces would stay and which we would bring in. We were in desperate need of nightstands so Gabe designed and made these simple geometric ones. (We will post the how-to soon!) On the nightstand we brought in a few dome lamps sent from Kenroy Home. I loved the chrome color and how they curved towards you as if they are lending a helpful hand;) They have a good deal of pendant lights and desk lamp options to choose from. On to the next set of details. Textiles and Furniture pieces…

My dresser was a piece I up-cycled from an auction find. I re-stained it and added some Anthropologie pulls to add in a little color. Was so thrilled to find this statement mirror from Kenroy Home to balance out the wall space. It has deep studded grooves and a metallic finish which continues with the rest of the finishes in the room.

We have a few new carpet pieces I will show you all soon, and the full reveal coming in November. Have you seen any dresser tops that have tickled your fancy lately? Would love some examples!

The Brand Market Chicago

The Chicago Brand Market was by far my favorite location yet. All glass windows in Palm Court on Loyola Campus and a crisp autumn day to provide boat loads the natural light. It overlooked the water and campus which had breathtaking views. We also had such a positive group of women who came ready to learn and dive in to the content, but also ready to make big steps for their business. I am so thankful for another great experience in Chicago…

And as always, my co-hosts were fantastic. I learned something new from each of them:
Matthew Hoffman You Are Beautiful Project, Hey Its Matthew Shop
Mandy Kellogg Rye – Shop Owner, Blogger – Waiting on Martha
Ari Krzyzek Graphic Designer – Chykalophia
Jess Keys – Marketing Manager – Dean Street Society, Fashion Editor – The Everygirl

Their advice, tips, and stories reminded my how unique each person’s success story is, and how each person’s definition of success is different from the next.

We are finishing out the year in Atlanta on November 8th. You can grab your spot here.
