All of the planning I’ve done lately for my wedding has made me realize how valuable true rest really is.
In order to accomplish hours of uninterrupted relaxation and sleep, I’m starting to plan for a mini bedroom facelift. In scouring thread counts and perky prints, it’s clear that the quality of the bedding itself is imperative. Of course, a few stylish accessories don’t hurt either. Here are three of my favorites “looks” to inspire. Wishing you all a restful weekend!
Below: Lazy Sunday afternoon worthy decor. The look is complete with a soft wool and angora Double Face throw by Frette, whimsical Tea Cup and the Festival Rug; both from Anthropologie. This trio is best enjoyed on a rainy day while reading your favorite book. Can’t you just feel the “cozy”?
For my third installment of the My Little Maison series, I am happy to introduce Kate Senkow of Things I’m Loving. Kate’s blog is a visual feast of her favorite interiors, food, books and travel destinations, infused with quotes that will make you ponder. Her posts fair toward a feminine aesthetic and are as light and lovely as lace. I’ve come to think of Things I’m Loving as a chic older sister adorned with pearl earrings resting in a glamorous boudoir. I think you’ll agree.
Tell us about yourself and your inspiration behind starting the blog?
I’ve always had a love for and appreciation of life’s little luxuries. I am passionate about home decor and design, cooking, baking and travel. I am especially inspired by all things London and Paris. I love sharing my latest discoveries with friends and family – whether it be a restaurant, a type of loose leaf tea, a new recipe, or a travel gem. I started my blog in hopes of sharing my latest discoveries with anyone who cared to listen. The response has been wonderful and humbling.
How often do you post and what is the majority of your content about?
I post, on average, once or twice a week, depending on what’s happening in my life. Juggling a full time job with part-time studies and renovating means I don’t post as often as I’d like to!
Having purchased a home, the majority of my posts have recently been decor & design related. The close runner up is Food & Beverage, followed by Fashion.
What are your future plans for the blog?
I would love to see the blog’s audience continue to grow. I hope my posts inspire others to experience life and savor those little moments in the everyday.
I asked Kate to share 3 of her favorite things from her home. The first one, makes my heart melt!
Finally, I asked Kate to share a favorite spot in her Little Maison. The one word she used to describe it: GLAMOUR. I agree!
I love the infusion of animals in home decor. Elephants, giraffes and lions are a whimsical addition to any room; it’s like being on Safari every day! Walking tall above, this 3 tray set by Thomas Paul is perfect for a wild party. Available for $66 HERE at Burke Decor.
One of my personal favorites below by Valentina, an elephant print ready to frame available HERE for $15. Her work is so vibrant and fresh! (note: watermark will not appear on print)
Above, I’ve had my eye on these re-purposed animal busts at Anthropologie for some time. The gazelle above is one of 4 options covered in vintage French book pages. Ooh la la! $68 HERE
Below, these sweet towels complement any kitchen decor. $12 for the hand screen printed set HERE from Branch Homemade. Don’t miss their fabulous selection of pillowcases as well!
Finally by Skinny Laminx, this handmade herd pillow is HERE for $35 straight from Cape Town, South Africa. You can’t get any closer to a real Safari!
While I was in Belize last week, I was taken with the sand. In some parts it was soft and pure and others there were millions of shell particles per handful. A great inspiration to feature some of my favorite neutral home design finds!
