Friday's Favorites

Don't you love it when you have a great inspiration day or as is my case, a great inspiration week?  I can't begin to tell you how many times I was inspired this week.  Here is a little sampling....
So inspired by Modern 24/7's apartment.  It's amazing.  Check out more here.  I'm loving that tree in the corner.  What kind of tree is that?  Anyone?  Next up, if you haven't been introduced to Abbe's blog Studio Ten 25, go introduce yourself!  A fantastic designer and her master bedroom has been stuck in my mind for days!!
Who doesn't love a good before and after?   Well, I certainly do and both of these B & A's are kitchen related.  Casey, from Loft and Cottage, does a great play by play of her kitchen upgrades on a tight budget.  Go here for more.
Amy Meier also had a great kitchen before and after.  A true gut job, but with a warm and inviting finish.  Check out more here.  
Iomoi's lucite trays are on my christmas list!  Have they expanded their product line?  So much eye candy.......check it out!

And, speaking of Christmas, I leave with you this!!  I know it's early, but this definitely makes me excited!!  So colorful and happy!  
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!!  


  1. Those colors make me excited too. Love the outfit and what a great wreath! Great links Fran and here's to Casey's kitchen makeover.

    The tree is a fiddle head fig, by the way.

    Have a great weekend.

  2. Love the post! Does anyone know where the PARIS book is from on the iomi tray? Is is a boox or one of those destination boxes. They have black and white ones at zgallerie but I love the above color pallette!

  3. Love the Christmas shot- so pretty! And, I need one of those lucite trays:) Have a great weekend!

  4. that bedroom is so serene and BEAUTIFUL! And if you ever find out what kind of tree that is.... please share the info.

    thanks for your comment on my blog... i'm totally with you... the drum pendant is the way to go. i wrote the post yesterday and then went over the options with my husband last night and we both agreed (for once)!
