  • Love the framed chalkboard and the velvet chartreuse sofa.

  • that’s the cleanest gardening shed i’ve ever seen. too beautiful to actually bring in soil!

  • that garden shed is adorable! It’s so clean and organized!

  • While I’m not a gardener in the least bit, that second image is making me wish I had a green thumb – and a green space in which to garden in! That top image is right up my alley though =) xo

  • I’m in love with the framed chalk board!

  • Darling, I can just never get enough of your blog and the endless gorgeous posts that are utterly my style♥

  • I’ve been wanting to make a framed chalk board! I love how large this one is!

  • Roséline, have been moving all over California and finally settling in one place…I see I have missed so many lovely posts! I absolutely love this chalkboard idea, and actually have been thinking about doing this in my own home but never have I seen one quite so perfect, with the gilded detail — such a regal & elegant element, and useful at the same time. Also smitten by the rustic gardening shed… so adore the porcelain.

    Inspired as always, with some amazing ideas here. I do hope you are having a fantastic week!
