Orange and Blue

My little boy is growing up, and with another one due in about a month, it's just about time to switch him to a big boy bed. I have been loving blue and orange lately- navy and orange to be exact. I was inspired by this darling kids room....can't remember which blog it came from....

But here are some other fun orange and blue combinations both kids rooms and beyond. Enjoy!

Media Cabinet

We went to Ikea the other day looking for random items for our upcoming move/new place, and discovered this:


I just love it! We're thinking of using it as a media console, but wouldn't it also look great in a kids play room or teenage bedroom for storage? And it's only $99! It also comes in white.

Grey and White Bedroom

I've mentioned before that I love master bedrooms which are calm and escape from the chaos of kids and toys. I have been searching for some new bedding to revamp my bedroom and have decided on a grey and white color palette. Masculine and feminine. Here are some inspiration photos that keep me focused on the original plan. Most are from design sponge, while others I forgot to label, sorry!

What colors do you have in your master bedroom?

Pretty Little Things....

....for the Kitchen!

I thought it might be fun to do a "Pretty Little Things" series and change up the topic. To start things off, I always seem to find the cutest little things for the Kitchen. Kitchen accessories are usually priced well and you can easily justify buying a new dishrag, spoonholder, or other fun items to add a little spice to your kitchen.

I got inspired by these two lovelies from Jayson Home & Garden:
Couldn't you just see yourself snacking on the seasonal fruit out of them?
Or having a garden party displaying yummy treats on these from Rosanna Inc?

Or sip a drink poolside

Eat some ice cream
(I just love the colors and patterns of these....also available in plates)
Or add these to your dinner table

*All from Crate and Barrell

And of course Etsy has a ton of wonderful, handmade tea towels to swap out your old one!

*Banana Sting Ray Screen Printed Kitchen Towel

*Spring Tea Towel

Super cute straws to display or use!


Adorable recipe boxes in lucite containers with lots of cute patterns!


*Both from

It's always fun to add a little bit of summertime fun to your kitchen and entertaining repertoire!
