My Current Obsession | The Darlana Lantern

I've fallen head over heels for the Darlana Lantern by E.F. Chapman, and I'm quite convinced that it has to come and live with me in my next home. I love every finish and size it comes in, but I think my most favorite finish is the shiny polished nickel as you see in the kitchen just below:

Whether in a kitchen, dinning room, or entry way - the Darlana lantern is like jewelry added to any space!

Dissecting The Details | Studio McGee

Today you can find me over on La Dolce Vita, sharing the kitchen designs of Studio McGee. I have been stalking them through instagram lately - everything that Shea and Syd design makes me drool! Hop over to read about 4 key elements that they utilize in these spaces.

Here are a few pics from Studio McGee's instagram feed - a must follow in my opinion ;) I am getting inspired and geared up for a home reno, can you tell?

House Tour | Kristen Nix

I love the freshness of the home of Houston-based interior designer Kristen Nix. The kitchen above was the first room to catch my eye, and the rest of the home did not disappoint. The home has great bones, and I love the exposed brick throughout:

Exterior Inspiration | Grey, Black & White

I feel like it has been forever since my last post! My apologies for being MIA, it's been a whirlwind since we sold our home and have begun to house hunt for ourselves. House hunting is fun, but let's be fully honest, it's quite daunting at the same time. Every home we view has it's pros and cons and it feels like it'll be all about weighing out what can match our needs best.

I am trying to do some of my homework ahead of time, in terms of determining what I like before we even buy the next home. So I'm busy pinning away and dreaming up all of my favorite things. Starting with the exterior, I have always been attracted to Cape-cod style shingles, and I'm thinking light-grey with all white trim and black accents (think doors, garage, and maybe even cute little shutters!). Here's a round of my current inspiration:

Love that Hampton's vibe! Keep in mind, none of the homes we are looking at are as massive or glamorous as those above, but at least I'm beginning to narrow down the color scheme and finishes that I am attracted to!

I'd love to know, what are your favorite exterior colors & styles?
