Whew! While those words mean something else to my husband and oldest son, I feel like I’ve had my own March Madness going on … good madness, of course … but it has left me little time to show my blog and loyal blog readers some love! I apologize. Kristy and I have been busy, busy, busy with some great collaborative projects this month. Then, throw in my sweet 9 year old’s 3 day birthday extravaganza … getting ready for Spring Break … and there you have it … madness.
So, today I thought I’d do a little catching up …
A few things that have made me swoon lately …
Is it wood or is it tile?
I LOVE the look of this new tile from Walker Zanger’s new Nature Collection. Yes, it’s tile, “made with state of the art glazing technology” creating an antique wood floor look with the durability of tile.
Very “farmhouse chic” don’t you think? I’d love to see these used in a kitchen or mudroom.
And they’ve also just introduced their AnTeak Collection. It’s made from teak wood reclaimed from construction projects in Indonesia. The teak grain is visible on the tiles, which come in several stains and shapes, including herringbone, hexagon and chevron. It’s already cured, because it’s been exposed to the elements for 75 or 100 years, which gives it a wonderful pantina.
Is it wallpaper or is it paint?
Next up, have you heard? Nate Berkus is back with a new TV show!
It’s going to be call Renovation Nation and will air on NBC in the fall. Read all about it here.
I blogged quite a while ago about my love for these Classic Penguin Book Prints here … and I was excited to see when one of my favorite bloggers, Stefanie of Brooklyn Limestone, created a variation of them for her daughter’s adorable nursery.
Even better, she has just announced a giveaway of these prints to readers of her blog.
Well, that’s it for now! Be sure to share your favorite swoon worthy things with me … I’d love to feature them here.
