If you’ve been watching my Instagram, you’ve probably seen a couple sneak peeks of the guest bedroom design project. I moved towards a look that was out of my comfort zone. Right before teaming up with Decorist, I noticed I was obsessing over white and neutral spaces. Pinning them like I was on fire. Maybe it was because I was also on color overload while redecorating the master bedroom in navy and pink? I don’t know, but flipped the switch, crossed my fingers and hoped for the best. Decorist hooked me up with Ashley Redmond, interior designer extraordinaire. I was psyched!

Some say you can’t buy good taste, but Furbish Studio is here to change all that. As the mecca for trendsetters, Furbish Studio carefully curates eclectic treasures for your home decor needs. I was recently poking around for some woven baskets adorned with colorful pom poms by California artist Eliza Gran. Boom! There they were. And although they are presently sold out, I’m on the list to be notified when back in stock. (I thought one would look super cute in Little Maus’s room.)

I’m starting to shop for the master bedroom makeover, and I have sooooo many home decor wants it’s ridiculous. I’m also learning (not really, this has been clear for quite some time) that I have shopping ADD. I tell myself to only search bedroom decor and suddenly I’m shopping for shoes. What is wrong with me? So today I decided to share my Wants + Wishes.

Oh home decor, you’re a tricky little bugger. Last week a reader advised me to take a step back from my bedroom makeover. I took that advice, and I’m glad I did. Thankful for your comments, I’m seeing this room with much more clarity. A couple weeks ago, I was shaking the Magic 8 Ball and asking if I’d get thru this one. It replied, “Don’t Count On It”, but today it said, “As I See It Yes”. Ha, I kid. I really don’t plan my home decor around a Magic 8 Ball, but if I did, it might keep things interesting around the house, that’s for sure!
Anyhoo, last Saturday, I wound up stopping into Scout and Brimfield and found this cute Saarinen side table. Once I finally dragged it out of the car, the white was popping and the round shape was softening the space. Yahtzee! I also made you guys a mixtape last Wednesday. It’s something I do every so often to mix things up around here. If you take a listen, you’ll have to tell me how you like it. I also received my style shoot photos from Hallie. I’m really excited to share them with you; be on the lookout for that post next week. I’m also working on another “I Make Emily Henderson Cry” post.
But enough about me, let’s get to this linky party already! Welcome to Found & Foraged you guys! I’m so happy you made it. Last week we got off to a really slow start, but wound up with over 180 link ups by Wednesday. So I’m going to take a poll. Do you guys like Saturday night linky parties? Or is Saturday night one of those personal funday nights? If you want to move it, we can always move it. You let me know. So what have you been working on? Spring cleaning? St. Pat’s parties? Home decor? A cool DIY? I can’t wait to see! Link it up!

Over my break, I kinda stepped back from the old bloggety blog and took one of the views from 40,000 feet. Yikes, I sound so corporate. But I did, and something very noticeable stood out to me. House Of Hipsters took a weird turn from home decor to being more DIY driven. Wait, what??? How did that happened? Don’t get me wrong, I love the DIYs, cocktails and recipes, but I need to get a bit more home decor back into the loop.
If you were one of my original readers, you may remember a little series I started called, “I Make Emily Henderson Cry”. If you don’t, you can read more here, here and here. I’ve explained in the past that there are several nooks of perfection in my home, and then there are nooks of utter and complete horror. I picture Emily knowing these nooks exist, and she sits in a beautifully organized, colorful closet, crying sweet salty tears of sadness. Somewhere in Hollywood, this poor woman is in disarray and has no idea why. Maybe it’s because Orlando left her for Homepolish. Maybe it’s because Charlie Hendo smeared his cute baby hands over her white leather poufs. Maybe it’s because she lost a button on her favorite floral blouse. No my dear, it’s not. Alas sweet kitten, it’s because I can’t for the life of me figure out how to style my nooks of disaster.
The evidence is pictured here. In my living room. It screams, “Don’t look at me! I’m hideous!” So what did I do about it? Well, I can tell you one thing, I’ve been sitting here for the past 4 months asking myself that same question.
