Amber Interiors - Friday Thoughts on Things 7-31

1 // Now that we have settled into our new pad, I am feeling a little domestic and wanting to be friends with my kitchen. Even though I can’t cook toast….This dish not only looks pretty, but it also looks delish and I would like to try and make/massacre it. Treat Yo Self!

2 // I have been moving for what seems like 3 months. This weekend is our last big move and we are headed to the new office!!! I have been loving this pair of nikes and I must say, these are legitimately the most comfortable things I’ve ever put on my feet. Treat Yo Self!

3 // With everything going on, I thought this quote seemed pretty applicable to my life at the moment….Treat yo self! (to a life vest)

4 // How rad are these handmade serving boards??  Finally we have more stock and you can get one of your very own over on Shoppe. Treat Yo Self!

5 // I barely have time to sleep let alone water my plants, so this nifty thing would be the perfect plant saver. Treat Yo Plants!

6 // You know how much I love a little beach vacay and I definitely wouldn’t be mad at swimming around in these fine waters. Treat yo Self!

7 // New office = new office supplies….Treat Yo Staff!

8 // I love a fun pair of sunnies and thinking I should add this pair to my collection. Treat Yo SELF!

::Noteworthy: A farmhouse with a modern twist::

While loosing hours and hours of precious daylight perusing the interwebs for my amazing clients, the new office, and now myself, I stumbled upon this little modern farmhouse and couldn’t resist sharing it with all of you lovelies.  The South African architect, Henri Comrie, did one hell of a job. The contrast between the eclectic farmhouse interiors mixed with the modern bones of the house is pretty freakin’ rad. So take a look below to see what I’m sayin’ and let me know what y’all think.

Amber Interiors X Lowe’s/Sherwin-Williams

Hey y’all! I have a post that’s being featured on SheKnows today. I had a lot of fun creating a few mood boards for this one. It shows how to make gorgeous changes in a space without breaking the bank by using some great pieces from Lowe’s and picking paint colors from one of the Sherwin-Williams paint collections. You can see an example of one of the mood boards I created below. To see the full article and links to all of the products click here!

New Office Space Update

Between the new Shoppe/design offices, the new house, the various moving days, and all the work travel…I have been a little unenthusiastic about anything that doesn’t involve sleep!!!

Even though the days feel like they are flying by, the actual progress  of anything has been dragging!  In the past few weeks we are finally seeing some progress people and the end is in sight!! If you missed my first post on our new office update, or haven’t heard our news of expansion, you can check it out here. The dividing walls are up and our offices and shoppe space are now defined. It’s amazing how much a little paint can do for a space and this is just the primer! Now that the baby poop brown is gone, It’s so much lighter and brighter than before and I love it. Next up, the wood floors are getting installed and all of the different tiles are going in.

We are aiming to move in on July 27th….So picture me counting down the days and chewing my fingernails off every day up until. Hopefully by that time I will be able to blog and not be confined by the straps of a straight jacket!

::Designer quick tip::

Happy Tuesday my lovelies! I am here in Raleigh werkin with Lowe’s on a fun little project, but I found some time to send a real quick designer tip your way. If you want more space to pin up your daily inspo, to-do lists, pretty pics, and rando items, don’t just hang a cork board – cover an entire wall with cork sheet for a mood board lover’s dream. In the famous words of Will Smith the rapper….”Getting Corky Widitt!”

Artist Spotlight: Lucy Snowe

If you love a good photo of a pretty sky, a busted trailer, or some cute little cow faces, then you’re going to dig Lucy Snowe’s photography. I am smitten, and since we are finally taking possession of our new house, I need some cool pieces to fill the walls!

Killer kitchen combos that work

Happy Monday….I mean Happy Tuesday!

Excuse me, I do believe I am still drunk off of fireworks, and hotdogs and celebrating the last weekend in our crappy rental! We are in full swing move mode and I have all things “new house” inspo on the brain. I can’t quite land on what my own new kitchen will look like, so lets talk about a few combos that are really good “go-to’s”.  Sometimes all you need is a good starting point, so here ya go! I put together 5 different combos,  including wall paint color, cabinet paint color, countertop material, backsplash, and hardware.

Now If I could just create a button that makes it all happen for you with no money, contractors, or headaches…
