Hey Gorgeous!

Ok, im usually not into brand new houses. I love the 70s, i love the 30s… i miss the beautiful houses in Savannah and all their weird qwerks. BUT with that said, Rhi from Hey Gorgeous Events bought one of THE most fabulous houses ever. I mean its stinking adorable. I love every detail about it. How bright every room is, the arched ceilings, the built ins… Oh I just wonder what sort of house I would have if it was built from scratch. Anyway, she has posted the initial interiors and her kitchen after they moved in. Be prepared for cute perfection.

Le gasp!

Two toned grey with a YELLOW front door?! (passes out)

Seriously, are you prepared for the most adorable kitchen of all kitchens?

I really cant handle this adorable vintage blue drink cart.

Eww! cat… Well, I guess it can’t be perfect…

 

Seriously, how cute are these two four? I can’t wait till she posts shots of the rest of the place! Soon please, Rhi! Check out more shots of her place here, here and here. If you want to check out her amazing wedding design (along with breathtaking photography) check out her site and blog. Now I’m off to track down a blue cart on Craigslist…

Kitchen Art

So these guys all started from my constant need to check kitchen conversions online – im just bad at remembering how many cups in a liter, tablespoons in teaspoons, etc. so i decided to make a quick an easy “art” guide right there on the wall. So i made some more 🙂 Find them all on my Etsy shop, here! Without the logo at the bottom, of course!

Cant wait to see this guys in my kitchen:

Can you tell I got a part time job at starbucks?!

Also made this chart to remember cooking temperatures – super helpful!

Hopefully these art charts will be helpful while cooking up some delish grub!

DIY Mother Day gifts

I dont know about you guys, but im flat broke. I tend to not even do anything for mothers day! I know… im a bad daughter. BUT NOT THIS YEAR! Heres a list of fun DIY ideas to make your mom something fun, pretty or yummy this mothers day. At at only a few bucks each, theres no excuse not to! Most of these I found off of the lovely Pinterest or off fabtabulous blogs!

Clay Petal Vase

Simple project with just a vase and stone clay. Run over to Centsational Girl for the full DIY here

Handmade Bath Fizzies

There are multiple handmade Spa goodies over on MarthaStewart.com go check it out and other DIYs like Body scrubs, lip balm and of course, Bath Fizzies!

DIY Lace Bowl

Always loved this project and wanted to give it a go. For the whole DIY check it out over here.

Hand painted Porcelin

For just 5 bucks you can pick up a Pebeo Porcelaine paint parker and hand paint on some white mugs. Full DIY here. I like the idea to stick with a theme such as botanical… makes the set really go together. Theres also a free template as well!

Personalized Scarf

Heres another project that I’ve been wanting to try for a while. You’ve got two options, either take a white scarf and use Fabric markers like in the DIY featured here… OR use a colored scarf and a bleach pen! Most likely you already have one… paint, let it sit for 10-15 minutes and wash it off under running water. Thrown them in the wash and thats it! Cant wait to try this project.

 

You BETTER do something for yo mama this year… you have no excuse now.

Much love!

Photography

So i thought i would share my other blog with you… *GASP!* She has a life outside of RadDesign?! It’s true… actually my interest in interior design came from my background in photography and graphic design. So i thought i would share my other sites so you can cruise around and check out what i do when i’m not staring at a computer screen or building random furniture.

BLOG: My photo blog is where I’ll be posting recent projects, inspiration, travel photography and really whatever is going on in that realm of my life. Jump over there and check it out!

GALLERY: Soon to be updated (this month hopefully!) to a more cohesive site where you can get on my blog, buy images or even log in (if you want to be one of my oh so sweet clients!)

So check them out and let me know what you think! Brutal honesty is always appreciated 🙂

This is a shout out to my girl, Ana! If you know me at all or have ever read my blog, you’ve seen furniture I’ve built from scratch. I am not a woodworker and have ZERO experience, but the one thing I did have was this website., Ana-White.com Everything you could ever need to know to build modern, sturdy, beautiful furniture. The first thing I built was The Outdoor Lounge Chair and very quickly moved on to my entire porch and build an outdoor sectional! I’m still in the process of making cushions but it is beautiful, comfortable and incredibly sturdy. Keep checkin back for updates on my current building projects and some fun how tos!
