mid-week round-up

fours up

How’s your week faring? I got a dose of winter over the weekend during my quick trip up to Kentucky. There was snow on the ground when I woke up Sunday morning and snowed the whole way down to the Nashville Airport (where I was flying out from). I was worried my flight wouldn’t make it out! I so enjoyed getting to spend some time with the Western Kentucky University Forensics Team and loved catching up with friends. A piece of my heart is forever and always reserved for these folks and that team. I’m beyond blessed whenever I get the opportunity to go back and watch new generations speak their truths and their passions. Ok y’all, have a fantastic rest of your week, and before you go, enjoy a perusal of the links below…

Dwelling Envy.

While the snow we got a couple nights ago was beautiful and all, I’m starting to feel the effects of Winter. The early dusk, less than favorable temperatures and general cold, wet, dreariness has resulted in a lot of time cooped up indoors. Namely, in my little one bedroom apartment. More than just a sense of going stir cray, I’m getting sick of looking at it. And binge watching all the HGTV shows the Gods recently decided to pop onto Netflix hasn’t helped either. I just want to completely DEMO, RENO and DECO (that last one’s a bit of a stretch but go with it) the shit out of this place. Here are some apartments I’ve been ogling on one of my fave internet time-sucks, Apartment Therapy. They have me turning green with “dwelling envy” but are fabulous for a bit of design INSPO (ok I’m done, sorry). Take a look!

I love the sophisticated vintage vibe of the first, the ethereal simplicity of the second, and the Scandinavian retro aesthetic of the last. It’s so hard to pick a favorite! Which would YOU choose?
