I’m a sucker for bamboo. I love its light color, airy feel and its natural aesthetic. I think it’s even cooler that the panda bear (one of my favorite animals) eats it and it also can be transformed into practical furniture, clothing and much more. I love it so much that we drove two hours to pick up our bamboo table and chairs from a Craigslist ad when we lived in Utah.

When we looked at the realtor listing for our home, one feature I absolutely loved was the wood burning brick fireplace. At first I thought we would paint it white to modernize it, but after moving in I realized I love the charm and beauty of the natural brick. So we are definitely not going to paint the fireplace. I am having a hard time trying to figure out how to decorate the mantel though.

At our last home there was a peony bush that would bloom the most beautiful peonies, they quickly became one of my favorite flowers! Each year for five years I would anticipate the blooming florals that came with the season and I was definitely sad to say goodbye to the gorgeous pink blossoms once we moved.
