In The Mail

Like the rest of you my mailbox has been infiltrated with magazines.  Loads of them.  There were a few things that stuck out for me, so I thought I'd share.  So here it is, a post titled "In The Mail: Home Edition".

I like this shoe & handbag tower from Ballard.  It's a little pricey, so if you can't splurge I'm sure you could find something similar and then just add some trim pieces from Lowes.


Pottery Barn was brilliant in their recent outdoor spaces magazine.  They showed tons of before and afters of porches and patios using all of their outdoor items.  Brilliant.  Really, it had both my husband and me needlessly looking for reasons to buy stuff (we didn't).

And you should also know that I adore these chaises.


Lastly, really digging these colorful outdoor dishes from West Elm.

 

Thanks for playing along :)

Great post. I'd die for that shoe organization. Doesn't look like it's in my near future :/

I love that shoe organizer!! Saving that pic for inspiration when I finally get a whole room I can turn into a closet! And that outdoor furniture is pretty sweet, digging the black!

OMG I am fixated on the shoe tower! I am determined to get one :) Dang you and the other thing I must buy now xoxo.

Love that shoe tower from Ballard. I didn't have room to incorporate a space like that in my new closet...but the next house for sure! I think the Billy bookcase from Ikea would be great to do it on the cheap.

I NEED that shoe tower!! What great outdoor spaces transformations! I'm thinking I want to recreate that outdoor movie scene at my house for a group of friends and family! Sure love getting great mail for inspiration!

I have been thinking about that show organizer from Ballard for a while, but it is so expensive! I know there's a look a like out there somewhere. Don't you just love that "movie night" makeover from Pottery Barn? That's my fave.

WOW to that shoe organizer! Think I may just make one for my new home! You could use it like an open plan wardrobe as well- shirts, bags/purses, perfume, throw some books in there- the ideas are endless. Will be pinning that pic for future reference! Hope you're having a great day xoxo

That black and white PB porch...yummy. Sometimes I get caught up in color and then I think why didn't I just stick with black and white...it really is so neutral.

Charleston Girl said...

I really like the idea of curtains on a porch space... very cool! Not sure why I've never seen that or thought of that before...but now I'm suddenly envisioning curtains on my condo's porch...Pottery Barn just found another victim!! :)

LOVE those west elm little beauties...they are just too cute...plus the practical side of me *loves* that they are melamine (c: Of course I would much rather splurge on the shoe tower from Ballard, *DUH*. Hey honey, don't you think it would be better to get me a shoe tower than to pay for our house next month??? (c: I'm thinkin' it would go over well...

P.S. You are pretty much the sweetest gal I know, thanks for the smile inducing comments about my b-day! I don't think I even realized that I don't have any pics of myself up! I'm so silly (c:

Oh, that shoe tower makes me weak in the knees. I love a good outdoor space . . no matter how big or how small.

Marianne {Style For Living} said...

The projector in the backyard makes me happy inside! I love getting catalogs- glad you reminded me to go look through them.
