Call me trendy (lol), but I love coming across details that cross over from interior design to fashion.  Today it’s all about the bumble bee.  If you’re like me, you’re terrified of the little buggers (and will scream at the sight), but that doesn’t mean you can’t love them as a style detail.

Happy Monday!

Okay, so here’s the deal.  My kitchen needs a major makeover.  The problem is that I’m renting so I need some non-permanent updates.  So, after hours of admiring kitchens on Pinterest, it hit me… GOLD!  I know, my obsession with gold continues, but in all seriousness, I’m convinced that adding gold hardware to my kitchen cabinets will make all the difference.

To prove my point, I’ve compiled 11 (I couldn’t stop at 10) of my favorite kitchens that show off some lovely gold hardware.

What do you think?  Would you consider gold hardware in your kitchen?

Now that I’m on my pre-baby #2 maternity leave, I have a little bit of free time on my hands.  So I got to thinking… this is the perfect time to try my hands at a little bit of Pinterest-inspired DIY.

Of course, I have almost no sewing skills, so I’ve been on the hunt for some no-sew simple DIYs. I’m thinking of making a mobile for the girl’s room and I came across these paper-based DIYs that could make for a super cute mobile.

For those of you with kiddos, you’ve probably already discovered one of my favorite sites, The Land of Nod.  But even if you don’t have kids, you should definitely check them out.  Their pieces are amazing… playful enough for kids, but chic enough for us grown-ups.

Here are 5 finds that I’m obsessed with right now.

It’s been a while since I’ve done my standard Wednesday ‘Here & Now’ post, but not to fret… I’m bringin’ it back.  And for this 2015 inaugural H&N post, I’m going with a celestial theme.

Super ‘Star’ DIY

This star garland looks so simple to make.  Of course I’d use gold paper, perhaps with some pastel pink thrown in. I’m thinking of making some to go over baby #2’s crib… Yes?ana07a-hole with a blog

These star-printed napkins are ADORABLE.  Chic, cool & playful all at the same time… magic! 8eb0cec4d2a1f8201dd8c8a5699de2cc

Okay, I don’t know why, but I have this thing with doors… especially colorful ones.  So I decided to round up 27 (yes, count them, 27) of my favorite swoon-worthy colorful doors.

From vibrant pops of color to soft pastel hues (and a black one thrown in for good measure), I’m loving every single on of these. Knock, knock!
