Mood Board Design Contest

This is my Mood Board submission for the newest contest by decor8 and Amy Butler! The idea behind the contest is to create a room that you would love to live in. There's still time for you to enter as the deadline for submissions has been extended to Monday, June 11! Winners will receive 5 new patterns from the lovely Amy Butler!

I really enjoyed creating this mood board as I feel it expresses my personality well. Color, summer, fresh breezes, cuddling up with a gorgeous quilt, watching a good movie next to my honey, the romantic glow of twinkling lights on a warm summer evening - aaahh - peaceful. Cheers to the lingering lazy days of summer!

Click here to view more close up pictures of my mood board and be sure to read the description for each picture!

Just as I finished this post, I received an email from Holly at decor8 letting me know that she has posted my Mood Board on her blog. Thank you so much, Holly! She has posted the additional pictures on her blog as well, so scoot on over and check them out!

Finnish Collection

Vintage Modern at its best! Introducing the newest collection at lorenzstudio - the Finnish Collection. This rare vintage textile from Finland has been turned into a wall hanging and pillow cover and they are ready to knock your socks off! I am in awe of the use of color and pattern on this piece. The chocolate brown background is punctuated by shocking pink and vibrant orange with a touch of a neutral tan to keep the piece from becoming too busy. And the undulating zebra stripes - who could ask for more! These pieces coordinate well with the Solid Linen Pillow from our Coconut Rose Collection.

Finnish and Coconut Rose Collections now available at lorenzstudio.

*Update - the Finnish Pillow has sold*

Gentelmen, Start Your Engines!

How cute are these Vintage Race Car Cake Toppers! I have fond memories as a child of my mother making homemade birthday cakes, but I think homemade birthday cakes have now taken a back seat to store bought cakes because people's lives are so busy. I mean who has the time anymore!?! But why not do it up simple? These little cake toppers have so much charm and personality, I can see them atop a simple white frosted cake surrounding a few candles and delighting children of all ages!
Vintage Race Car Cake Toppers now available on etsy!

*Update - these babies are sold!*

Modern Charm

I have been growing my hair out for about a year now and it's starting to act a little crazy lately. (The "curse" of having curly hair I guess) So lately, I have been trying to decide what fun things I can do with it for the summer. And along comes the perfect headband from Modern Charm! Mendy graciously and generously offered up one for free to me after posting my Turquoise Pillow Cover on her blog. You see, it was a little contest and I am so blog-obsessed lately, that I found my link on her blog and won! I got to pick any one of her headbands, which was very hard to do because they are all so cute, but this one has the perfect colors for me and of course I love the floral print of the fabric. If you'd like to pick one up for yourself, there are dozens of adorable fabrics to choose from. Be sure to check out the Modern Charm Blog for some additional inspiration, and be sure not to miss the adorable apron with the gorgeous yellow birds on it! Thanks again, Mendy!

Cranberry Divine

It's no secret that I'm in love with vintage textiles. This set of fabric wall hangings, created from a vintage tablecloth, would look stunning hanging in a dining room with a funky white chandelier. The deep cranberry is so gorgeous and the clusters of fruit are simply charming. If you have a spot for this set aptly named, Cranberry Divine, you can buy it on etsy.

Vintage Tumblers

Taking a cue from Holly, over at decor8 (see hers posts on "Lavender Love," "Poppin Purple" and a "Passion for Purple") I've decided to list these Vintage Frosted Purple Tumblers on ebay. It seems purple is popping up all over and it only takes a little of this color to make a bold statement. These pretty purple glasses would be the perfect accompaniment to a summer soirée in your backyard garden!

Vintage Fabric Wall Art Hanging

I have turned a gorgeous piece of vintage fabric into an amazing piece of artwork just waiting to make its way into your home. It would look perfect in an office, bedroom, living room or dining room.

This fabric was given to me by a sweet fellow blogger in a vintage swap and features the prettiest aqua blue, silvery gray and snow white design on a sand-colored background. The fabric has been stretched over a frame and is ready to hang on your wall!

I have 2 of these wall hangings available in my etsy shop.
