Friday Fave: Readers Nest

Good Day to you and, of course, Happy Friday!!
Are you ready for your weekend? I hope you have some fun spring things planned! I have a local Arts festival in my plans and can’t wait to see what I can find!

Are you ready for another Friday Fave?
I am in Love with this fantastic wall accessory called the “Readers Nest” from WIS Design produced by David Design.

What a simple and smart shelf? Hold up your favorite books and no more “dog ears” on your current read!  The painted white metal is perfect for ANY location…
Next to your bed.  Your favorite chair.  A child’s nursery.
I would love to have one outside on a tree, next to my hammock! Or even on a portable post that I can take to the beach and plop next to my chair.
I think several of these all on one wall (I mean lots) would be so cool for a kids room! Now that would make reading fun!

For product information (pricing, availability, etc) you can contact the producer David Design(I did find them online for around $58 ea from other retailers to give you an idea of cost)

I hope you have a fantastic weekend!!
Enjoy your day!

Don’t be afraid of the dark!

Well Good Afternoon to you!
It was a beautiful day in Atlanta today.  We had a bit of rain yesterday to wash away some of the thick layer of pollen that has been residing about, so today the air just felt fresher!

One of my favorite items to select on a home is the exterior colors.  It is the biggest statement about what the feel will be on the interior and of course it is the first impression that is quite easy to make or break! As with design, there are no rules, so you can pick what you feel the house truly needs.  It is so important to really analyze the entire street scape when picking colors – you want your house to blend and stand out all at the same time… Tricky but definitely achievable!

Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE white… but one of the most striking exteriors to me is BLACK.  It is Bold.  Sophisticated.  Chic.  and somewhat Glamorous.  I love that it can work on anything from farmhouse to modern and have the same striking affect.

Would you be so daring as to paint your house black? What would the neighbors think – I think they would be jealous! I know I’m not afraid of the dark!

Enjoy your day… well, evening at this point!
