Wednesday Randoms

A few things I'm liking this week...

This was actually a barn & I love everything about it! Especially the mint coloured walls!
Head over here for more details on the space.

Loving this bedroom & the map headboard {great idea!}. See more over at The Painted Hive.

Summer is quickly coming to end, so I've been pinning fall things {surprise, surprise}. These cookies look delish and I can't wait to make them in the very near future. Oh, and maybe these cinnamon rolls too!

This is the cutest little sun porch!

Hope you're all having a great week!

For the Love of Hydrangeas


They are one of my favourites. Someday when we own a home, they'll be a must to plant around our house. 

While we were away I spotted them everywhere. New England seems to be plastered in them. Just another reason why I love that area so much. 

Cape Neddick, in York, Maine.

Kennebunkport, Maine.

They even filled Newbury Street in Boston. I think that may be my favourite street to walk down. 

*Side note*
While walking down Newbury street I stumbled upon The Newbury Handmade Market where some local Etsy sellers set up a pop-up shop. Of course I went in and took a look around. There were some really great things to look at and some very talented artists present. Plus, it's always great to see a community support local.

Are you a hydrangea fan? What's your favourite flower to see planted outside?

For me, it's definitely hydrangeas. Oh, and peonies too!

Back At It

It's been a while but I'm back.

We just arrived home from a nice trip away {I'm sure I'll share some details at a later date}. It's always nice to get away, but it's nice to get home too. Although, it would be nice to be back on this beach...

I'm looking forward to savouring the last bit of summer & getting ready for, dare I say it, the fall season.

I'll be back next week with some updates and posts so stay tuned.

Happy weekending!

The Beauty of the Mismatch

So often we're too concerned with making sure everything matches. There's nothing wrong with this and it's something I can often find myself doing. Instead of asking the question: "does it match?", the question should sometimes be: "does it go?". Because if it goes together & you like it, well then that's all that matters. There's beauty in mismatch, at least I think so.

Chairs that differ from the table OR chairs that differ from each other...

Mismatched nightstands & bedding...

Mismatched dishes...

Everything isn't all match-y match, but it totally goes.

I know it's not for everyone, but remember, it's your home, you're the one that has to live in it. Make it a place you want to live in. If you like a bit of the mismatched look, go for it.

What do you think of having mismatched items around the home?
