On Saturday night I was given the box set of Mad Men and my hubby and I (despite the rare sunny weather) have barely pressed pause! I love the plot, the advertising pitches, the smoking and drinking (shocking amounts). The clothes and women are AMAZING but it's the furniture that's really stealing my heart, I love the simplicity, the tones, the amazing lamps, office spaces, divine chairs and the little details like gorgeous drinking glasses. If you haven't watched I'd highly recommend the box set... just don't make any plans once you purchase!

Don't you love how a trip around some blogs sparks off an idea in your head and then you can't get it out of your head and then all the other things you were obsessing about are suddenly not that important anymore? Yes, me too!
I'm now thinking I could get someone to build me some shelves kinda like this for my bedroom and it would not only look great but everything would have a home!! Todays inspiration was provided by a great sneak peak on DesignSponge.

I spotted these fab banners by banner banter on A Cup of Jo, I'm going to order Cullen at Heart, Sweet Dreams and Celebrate the Everyday! Check out all the huskies in the middle pic!! ahh
Update: I noticed that you couldn't order these in Ireland but the very helpful Angela has now changed that...mine are now ordered and on the way! woohoo!

Had I had the funds when we moved in I would have changed my kitchen to a high gloss white or green but I am slowly falling in love with the character and warmth of the walnut wood... once I change the handles, convince hubby the walls need to be the palest shade of pink and get my cow print rug for under the dining table I'll be very happy! The above kitchens are two of my favorites from Living Etc.
This image has been saved on my desktop for over a year - I love the mixture of wood, white and bright colors but it was particularly the print on the back wall that I loved. I recently came across the artist Sanna Annukka - now all I have to do is save up!
