Bright and Airy Spaces
Beautiful floors, plain walls, and stunning displays of light are truly what dreams are made of. I spend a lot of time checking the updates to this board and dreaming of what my future home would look like if I had a limitless amount of money.
Pretty Summer Cocktails
What sounds more refreshing on a hot summer afternoon than one of these pretty pastel cocktails? That beautiful drink on the left is the Charleston Pink Lady from Return to Sunday Supper. The other drink showcased is a Vodka Pear Lavender Lemonade by Sugar and Cloth. Other delectable summer drinks include this White Peach Margarita and Limoncello Prosecco with Blueberries and Thyme.
I cannot stop looking at beautiful pictures of my dream travel destination. I mean, just take a look. Who wouldn’t want to visit the surreal Amalfi Coast or the Tuscan countryside? I could honestly dream about visiting this country forever. Need more fodder for your imagination? Check out my post on books about Italy.
Much like the airy spaces shown above, a simple bedroom is key to my happiness. Our apartment has been overly cluttered these past few months and the thought of purging unnecessary items and living in simplicity is appealing. Here is a collection of boards dedicated to minimal bedroom styling.
DIY Abstract Art
I’ve blogged about DIY art before, but I have been loving large, textured canvases (check out this one from Z Gallerie and this one from West Elm). Instead of spending $600+ for some abstract art, I’m planning to buy a jumbo canvas, layer on the gesso (here is some more information on adding texture with gesso), and creating a unique masterpiece myself.
Instant Pot Recipes
When it’s 110 degrees here in Arizona, there is nothing that is less appealing than turning on the oven. Fortunately, with my Instant Pot, I can avoid overheating the entire house. Try this Barbacoa Beef recipe or the Short Rib Ragu recipe pictured above. Neither of those sound appealing? Check out some of the Pinterest boards dedicated to quick and painless pressure cooker recipes.
Swoon-Worthy Summer Heels
The best part of summer is the cute shoes, right? Whether you’re wearing some low-heeled sandals out for errands or sky-high stilettos for a friend’s bachelorette party, there is a beautiful summer heel out there for everyone. Start at DSW for inspiration and great prices. Even Target has been delivering on adorable heat-approved styles this season.
This is a home decor trend I have been obsessed with for a while. There is something so modern and clean about huge glass windows framed with steel. Get inspired by following this board on Pinterest.
