It’s Friday, High-Five!

After some long hard driving (ten plus hours long) we have arrived in New Orleans and are ready for some good eating and lots of relaxation. Okay so maybe not complete relaxation, my family always puts me to work when I come to visit and I don’t plan to be totally MIA from the blog. I have plans to visit the Traditional Home Showhouse 2016 so I’ll be sure to take pictures and I have a few projects I’ll be working on bringing you while I’m here. I’m sure in between all of that I’ll be able to fit some relaxation in somewhere…High-Five to that!

Here are a few more high-fives for the week…


1.The above Laurel Canyon Residence by designer Rachael Meadows recently caught my eye, while most of her work is centered on modern design but in this home I love that she has also incorporated vintage pieces, for a warmer homey look.

2.  I have to brag a little because this week I participated in the Eclectic Interiors Summer Home Tour with 19 others and everyone knocked it our of the park. If you are looking for some weekend reading here are all the participants in one spot…

3.  I love succulents but I admit I kill them every time, so I kind of love this post by A Beautiful Mess on the most real, faux plants.

4.  So glad that Emily Henderson‘s post on Designing a Budget Living Room includes furniture normal folks like me can actually afford.

5.  Check out Los Angeles–based artist Jedediah Corwyn Voltz who has a charming side business making tiny treehouses for potted bonsai trees, cacti, and succulents. Apparently he can actually keep them alive…

Have a great weekend,
