A Thoughtful Place


Five For Friday

While I am so excited it’s Friday, I am a bit bummed as I’ve been under the weather and had planned to seriously tackle a reno project this weekend. I better keep the vitamin c going! Hoping you’re all feeling much better than I am. Sharing five things on my mind today as we kick off the weekend!

1| pulling it all together

The lovely Marty, from A Stroll Thru Life invited me to share a room with her readers and how I pulled it all together. I think much of it was luck, but if you want to read about why this room is special to us as well as how it all came together, hop on over to her blog!



2 | five ways . . . let’s hear from you


I have been blown away from the response I get each time I post a “Five Ways” installment. I would love to keep the series alive and am curious if you all have a topic you would like to appear on this blog series. If so, just leave a comment below. If you aren’t familiar with how it works, you can check out past ideas here, here and here.


3 | bring on fall

We are grinning ear to ear in So. Cal because temps have dropped from 100 degrees to 80 degrees! Yahoo! But seriously, I am so darn ready for Fall and cooler temps. I love all things plaid. If you are a Nordstrom card holder, you have the next three days to earn triple points. Just good to know. This plaid shirt will be making it’s way to my Saturday Shopping post tomorrow.

4 | beautiful autumn printables

My jaw dropped when I saw these. There is just something so classic and beautiful about these prints and I think you will love them too. Go check them out over at Tatertots and Jello! {psst. . . they are free!}.


5 | renovation underway

We finally did it. I feel like we have been talking about renovating the children’s bathroom for years. Apparently we are very slow to warm up to major projects. Although I guess we have no choice now! In between football games last weekend, my sweet and strong hubby busted out all of the tile. There’s no turning back now. I will be updating you as we go. Fingers crossed we have a bathroom that looks pulled together at the end of this. And in case you are a new reader, we had a leak which is why we had to address this bathroom to begin with. The joy of water damage!



Hope you all have a wonderful weekend. I am hoping to be back to my healthy and peppy self so I can help with this crazy project we’ve started. Wish us luck.


Neutral Living Room: Client Progress

Today I wanted to share with you some progress I have made on a local client. She has the cutest new place and I feel honored that she has entrusted me to help her make it a home. While I am still not taking on new clients, I couldn’t resist this fun opportunity! While new paint, floors, trim work and built ins are being worked on . . . I am scheming and shopping away. The overall look of the space will be very neutral. That way she can infuse any color she wants at any time. Here is a look at some of the pieces we have been pulling together. Of course the new Nate Berkus line at Target has found it’s way into her comfy lounge space! Sources listed below {great rug sale!}.

gold ball | black vase | rug {sale} | stripe pillow | graphic pillow | lumbar

I love the white sofa and warm wood tones mixed with gold and black. The rug and sofa will arrive in a couple of weeks. We just found the most beautiful dining table, too, which should be delivered shortly. I will be back to update you on the project as we tackle the entire home! Enjoy your day. Off to decorate!
