The Friday 5

Today I’m bringing you a new regular post – The Friday 5! It’s short, simple and to the point because really who can digest much information when you’re only hours away from your weekend!

What’s the Friday 5 exactly? I’ll share (you guessed it) 5 quick things that have been on my mind this week.  This might be project sneak peaks, Pinterest-fueled inspiration pictures or the hottest sales.

1. Once an IKEA hacker always an IKEA hacker. This is supposed to be a birthday gift for E, but it might actually be the fulfillment of my own childhood dreams. Buy the house here.

Schumacher Birds & Butterflies Wallcovering

2. Speaking of our little princess, we finally selected a wallpaper for her big girl room — Schumacher Bird & Butterflies wallpaper.

Staging by Pretty Domesticated & Studio West. Also can we give Kirsten of Studio West a round of applause for painting that art piece!

3. Studio West Homes has been on mind and they should be on yours too. I helped them stage their parade home recently. Locals — check it out during the Parade of Homes this weekend. Everyone — follow Studio West on Instagram and Facebook for a modern take on classic architecture.

4. West Elm is having a MAJOR sale right now!  It’s their once yearly Friends & Family sale where EVERYTHING in stock is 20% off with the code FFSALE at checkout. This includes sale items! Some of their furniture (both in stock and not) is already marked down 40%, but you’ll still get an additional 20% off at checkout! Talk about a steal.

5. There is a new hot magazine in town called Midwest Nest. Look for me in their inaugural edition, in print and online this October. Follow them on Facebook here.
