I Delight in Green & Amanda Nisbet Design

Enjoy more of Amanda Nisbet's rooms here.


Green & Yellow Delight

Just came across this great room and blog, CC Interior Design. I just love the mix of yellow and green, so much energy. The best part of this room is that she pulled the whole room together for $250! Check out more images of the room here.


Fantastic Customer Service

I came home from work on Friday and was greeted with a box sitting on the porch addressed to me. I was very curious as to what it was because I had not ordered anything. So, I ripped open the box to find a handwritten note and a Archipelago Botanicals candle from One Kings Lane. One Kings Lane is a great members only site with weekly home decor products and accessories at 70% off retail. You'll find names like Dwell Studios, Kate Spade, Juliska, Ankasa, Versace, Lunt Silversmiths, and many many more fabulous brands. Well, I had ordered a beautiful Juliska pitcher for a wedding present back in May and too my disappointment the vendor over sold...I didn't get the pitcher. One Kings Lane apologized over and over again for the inconvenience and gave me a $25 credit towards my next purchase. I was a little bummed, but knew I would continue to shop with them because of how upfront they were with me. So, I was completely surprised when they sent me a handwritten note and candle to apologize again! I have never received customer service like that before. It's really nice to get that kind of service from a world who only thinks about 'ME'. I highly recommend shopping with One King Lane! If you're not a member and would like to become a member, email me at lizzie61105@gmail.com and I will send you an email invitation. Thanks for the great customer service One Kings Lane!!!


Happy Friday!

Off to the lake for the weekend...watching the water and enjoying a margarita!


Etsy Shop of the Week

I generally lean towards very colorful artwork, however I really enjoy the simplicity of these prints. They seem very clean and fresh. Wouldn't they look great in a kitchen or mud room...You can find the prints at etsy shop, Eva Juliet.



Happy Birthday Larkin!

I just purchased these exquisite gemstones! The colors are so vibrant and rich, and I love the combination of colors. Can't wait to create some fun and exciting jewelry! You can find more colorful gemstones here.



I think this is one of the most creative things that I've seen...cupcake hamburgers! Bakerella used cupcakes for the buns, brownies for the patty, and cookies for the french fries. I'm not a big baker, but might just have to try them next time the nephew and nieces come over. Find the recipe here and more great photos of these cute little things.

Great Space Saving Idea

I think this idea is so great! I've seen lots of ways of disguising flat panel tvs, like artwork that moves up and down to hide the tv, but I have never seen this idea and I really like it b/c you're storing more then just the tv.

Designer Robyn Karp

While doing some daily blog reading I discovered this great designer, Robyn Karp. Elements of Style posted fantastic images of her interiors...I just had to post some more of them. All the rooms just seem so soothing and I love the splash of color she uses in all her rooms. Enjoy and check out Elements of Style's post on Robyn Karp.


Etsy Shop of the Week & Happy Friday!

Dan and I will be heading to wedding number 4 out of 8 we have for 2009 this weekend. So, I thought it would be appropriate to do a post on wedding gifts. I'm not normally one to venture off the wedding registry list, but sometimes I want to mix it up a little bit when you have showers, bbqs, bachelorette parities, and then the wedding to attend. I've put together a list of gifts that I think would be meaningful for the newlyweds, all found on etsy...


Hope everyone has a great weekend!


Animal Print

I'm not typically an animal print person, but I just really like this zebra print. What are your feelings on animal prints in interiors?
