Hornsea pottery love.

We've been collecting Hornsea pottery for years now, and as much as our kitchens have changed over the years, these pieces seem to somehow always stay current. Hornsea pottery has been around since 1949 and was started by two brothers in England. The pottery really took off in the 70's, and we love how the simple designs look timeless and some of the pieces even look like they were made recently!
I love the simple lines and colors of these stripes pieces.

This Springtime horsea piece has sold, and we can see why!

This vase is so simple, but so lovely!

I love the 70's look to these ones.

Ack! These patterns are incredible!
You can buy a set of the blue raindrop salt and pepper shakers here.

I think that I need this spice set in my life. 

I can't decide if I like the brown or this green set better!?

Exterior envy.

Sometimes it is nice to judge a book by it's cover:
 
 How adorable is this little pink cafe with the most suiting name?
 
I've always dreamed of having a house with an exterior covered with green vines, but this cottage takes it to the next level.
 
Built right into the side of a cliff, how is this even possible? You are absolutely breath-taking, Verona, Italy.
 
 I am rarely one to daydream about winter time, but this open concept cozy cabin is looking pretty idealistic right now.
 
Saved the best for last... take a peek at this cat shaped school in Germany! My childhood dreams just came true!

Happy weekend!

 Woop! It's Friday again! This week went by super crazy fast and we are looking forward to the weekend. Oh, we also updated our Instagram shop again today, so check it out!
Amen to that!

We are huge fans of Paper & Stitch, and this s'more ice cream sandwich makes us love her work more!

Such a beautiful restaurant exterior in Tribeca!

I like this saying. A lot.

How amazing is this Crosley turntable!?

In the boudoir.

Alright, so we moved into our house just over a year ago now and I am embarrassed to admit that we still had not even unpacked the spare bedroom. It was basically just used as a glorified "storage room" where we would toss random things that didn't have specific homes and it didn't take long before it started spiraling out of control into one big mess. However, a week ago we decided that enough is enough and we finally got our act together and cleaned it out! I did a mini makeover of the room, and it's not nearly done yet, but here is a little sneak peek of how it's coming along:
 
We found a vintage wrought iron bed frame on Kijiji and I immediately fell in love with this coral and grey striped bedding from Target the second I laid eyes on it, so we are basing the decor of the room around those things. We gave a few feature walls a coat of mint-colored paint that I think really accentuates the color of the bedding.  The room isn't quite done yet, so I will be sharing some more photos later on, but for now here are a few inspiration photos that I have been liking:

What an incredible headboard, I have never seen anything quite like that! I'm also a huge fan of the bedside greenery.

Yes! Bold pops of coral! Cute idea to have the color of the bedspread carry out onto the wall art too.

I'm really loving this cozy New York loft space, especially the warm lighting clustered in the corner. I am thinking about how I can incorporate something similar into my spare bedroom.

Why is everything better with exposed brick? I am also really into the mint accent color. (Who's surprised?)

More photos to come!
