Unexpected Curves

This photo caught me by surprise. Not only with the unexpected curve of the staircase, but also with the couch and table in the entryway. I've never seen this before, but I really like it. I love how the couch mimics the curve of the staircase. 

 The table legs are also curved and very detailed:

Current Projects

I feel like I've hit the "nesting phase" of my pregnancy. Only 7-8 more weeks to go. I have lots of projects to get done and I feel like the list is never ending. Here are some of the things I've been working on:  

1. Hemming the curtains on our sliding doors in our dining room. These were purchased from Ikea and I've finally gotten around to buying Heat n Bond tape and taking out my iron to hem these by hand:
1 down (right), 3 to go:

2. Framing pictures and hanging on the wall:

Yes, I am just making a collage of our wedding from back in July, 2009!

3. Still looking for fabric (for curtains in the nursery). See another post on fabric here:

4. Finishing up my closet. I bought out the supply of black suede hangers at Michael's (on clearance for $4 for a pack of 10) and snagged some more at Home Goods. See the progress of my closet here, and check back for the finishing project. 

5. Shopping on Etsy for cute prints and other accessories for the nursery.

6. And...a million other little things. Trying to shop for multiple rooms in the house and finish little projects all at once is really overwhelming. I need to focus on 1 project at a time. This is why I haven't been blogging as much, but I hope to be back soon with finished projects and photos!

I fell in love with this chair at Home Goods. I love the bright colors and pattern. I wish I had somewhere to put it in my house. Well, I probably do, but it wouldn't go with my color scheme. But, I still love it! And, it's only $199. Definitely a statement piece!

Jennifer Lopez's Home

I love these photos of Jennifer Lopez's California home from Veranda Magazine. So luxurious- from the grand entrance of the curved staircase to the elegant furniture pieces to the extravagant lighting. See below:

Pier 1 Love

Loving this new sea glass lamp from Pier 1. I love the cool turquoise paired with the classic white shade. And, only $50. A perfect update for spring:
