Coffee Table Book Roundup

I love a good coffee table book... not only are they fun to look through, they are beautiful to look at. books can be a great way to add a pop of color to a room or to accessorize a shelf, table, desk, etc. As a designer, I naturally love design books, but I also have several favorite coffee table books that have nothing to do with design. Once you start a collection of beautiful books I think you will find that it will be hard to stop. There are so many great ones out there! Here is a collection of some of my favorites:

My Bedroom re-do

First, I just want to say a big THANK YOU to all of you who have been praying for me. The past month has been a really challenging one in my life, but I have seen the Lord carry me through it. I have faith and confidence that He is not done working in my life and I am trusting him everyday. Thank you all for being so kind and understanding in my absence. I really do have the best community of friends around me!

Today I have some exciting news for all of you! I have decided to completely re-do my master bedroom (along with changing/adding a few other things around the house). As a designer I always have my eyes out for furniture items that I like and I feel like I am always hypothetically designing and redesigning my own home in my head. I am excited to get some new pieces for myself and really see my room come together. I decided to really go all out dream-girl on this bedroom. I am planning to use a soft pallet of colors in light, blush pink tones and maybe a few pale blue or mint green shades thrown in. I am planning to keep the furniture very neutral with a mix of antique items with a few more modern ones.

Here is what I am thinking as far as accent colors:

And here is my design board for the new room. I am still finalizing the furniture selection but this will give you an idea of the look I am going for:

What do you think? Its still a work in progress and will take a couple months to get everything pulled together. Keep checking in for updates!
