Freshen Up Your Outdoor Rooms With Birch Lane

Tuesday, April 21, 2015

I'm sure most of you receive the Birch Lane catalog, but have you seen their latest offering in the outdoor department?  I spent all day this past Saturday sprucing up our outdoor spaces trying to make them a relaxing place to sit and unwind.  So I was pretty excited when the catalogue arrived which gave me both inspiration and the very chairs I've been looking for.  Birch Lane has everything for your outdoor spaces from accessories and lighting to furniture and rugs.  I've had the best time studying all of the pretty images in the spring catalog.

Here are a few of my favorite items just in case you are looking for inspiration to spruce up your outdoor spaces.

I'm a huge fan of stripes (duh) and am crazy over this umbrella!  It comes in other colors and also in solid colors if you aren't a stripe person.  I also really like the Eastvale umbrella in white!

If we had room for an outdoor sectional, I would be torn between the Endicott and the Skylar (see below).

This bistro set is pretty fantastic as well!  It also comes with red or tan cushions.

My love of window boxes is no secret.  I love the copper finish on this Cardiff Planter.

Birch Lane has all sorts of decorative containers in an assortment of sizes and finishes.  The Jasmine Planter is one of my favorites.

By the way, I'm planning a navy, black, aqua, and white theme for our deck/patio and really like the Laura pillow in navy with the Lucas (see below).
So tell me, have you started thinking about your outdoor spaces or is it still cold where you are?

Monday Inspiration | Helen Davis Interior Design

Monday, April 20, 2015

It would be safe to say that one of newest design crushes is the talented Helen Davis.  I first discovered her on instagram and loved all of her recent projects.  So I quickly popped over to her portfolio to explore her talents a little further.  Helen is a girl after my own heart with a knack for mixing modern and classic pieces to create rooms that withstand the test of time.  Enjoy!

I adore the blue and white, natural bamboo, metallics, and exposed brick in this loft!

The rustic entry table paired with modern elements is perfect.  Neutral with just enough color.

This pair of chairs reminds me of a client I worked with last week.  We chose fretwork fabric for a pair of Lee Industry chairs and Kelly Wearstler pillows in teal.  Love this combination!

Symmetry gets me every time.  I really like this subtle pattern mix in a bedroom.  And of course the pup is adorable!

Cabinets to the ceiling and nice crown moulding as the finishing touch.  I also like the enclosed microwave cabinet.

This room is the perfect mix of classic and modern.  To see more of Helen Davis's work visit her website and to catch her work in progress check her out on instagram.
