NOW DECORATING || Breakfast Nook / Dining Room Updates

The Now Stylebook Breakfast NookFactory Light || Marais Chair || Wishbone Chair

We are in the middle of a major home makeover and I wanted to share some updates and possibly get feedback/ideas from y’all on what we’ve done so far! Currently, I am working on our breakfast nook, den, living/dining rooms. I know, I know…I should work on one space at a time, but it’s not like I live in a mansion and I am determined to have the house done by the summer so I have to multitask.

Anyway, so far the breakfast nook is pretty bare as we only have an Ikea table, an antique bench and some chalkboard paint in there now. I think I’d like to keep the chalkboard walls but maybe add a pop of blue by placing blue and white plates on the wall behind the bench. We obviously need new chairs and I love the options above but will the Marais chairs and factory light make it too industrial? Perhaps I should do the ghost or wishbone chairs instead?? And I can’t even begin to think about a rug for this tiny space. Keep reading to see our dining room updates Continue reading

NOW WANTING || Cole & Son Hummingbird Wallpaper

While stalking Style Me Pretty Living the other day, I came across Shea McGee’s beautiful nursery with the most beautiful wallpaper I had ever seen, Cole and Son’s, “Hummingbird”. Within a few weeks, I noticed the wall covering in Kelly Moore’s breakfast nook and the fabric version used in the dining room of Bailey Quinn’s latest project. It’s like it was begging me to notice it! Now, I’m pretty sure I need this print..either in fabric or wall paper form.. to be in my house.  It is fresh yet super romantic and the green background color is absolute perfection! The I have been wanting to mix more traditional pieces and accents into my home and I’m thinking this would look amazing on a bench {or even the walls} in the breakfast nook or on these chairs.

Aren’t you in love??

Find the wallpaper here or here {identical, but less $} and the fabric here

Matches || Finn Ring { similar }|| Marysia Swim Gingham Bikini

Black and White Wall: I have been planning away on our house makeover {aka stalking Pinterest} and I’ve found some gorgeous inspiration. I would like to get wall paneling put up in our living room and initially wanted it to be all white, but after seeing this black and white picture, I may have to paint the moulding dark.

Matches, Ring : While these two are on completely opposite sides of the price spectrum, I think they both would make excellent Valentine’s gifts! How cute are those matches?? 

Floral Skirt: Oh the downfalls of Pinterest! I hate when you can’t find the source for an image especially when it involves a skirt like this. So far, I know that it was on Net-A-Porter’s Instagram, but have had no luck identifying the designer of the mysterious orchid/ palm print skirt. If you have any ideas, please let me know!!

Marysia Swim: I have been a super fan of this swimwear line and was going to post about their leopard print suits until I saw this gingham print bikini. Whaaaat could be cuter than this suit? I am hoping to go on a few vacations this summer and think this suit would be a very sound investment!

Kitchen: We bought our home from a house flipper who did a great job with remodeling but didn’t install a backsplash in our kitchen. Of course being the huge procrastinator that I am, I have just lived with it, but I would love to do a marble subway tile like in this kitchen. I’d also LOVE to tear down some of our cabinets and do some open shelving. Are you a fan of open shelving?? If you have it, would you recommend it?
