Weekend Recap & Cheery Modernism January 18, 2010

This weekend was super nice. I took off early on Friday so D and I could attend a Green Building Mentor Event at UW. We ran into a Tulane Alum and it was a good chance to chat with students interested in sustainability. Then, we FINALLY went grocery shopping, something that has been needing to happen since before the holidays.

Saturday we took down the Christmas decor (sad, but everything feels so ROOMY now), met Jackie at the Goodwill for some wedding craft material searching, then had an evening full of game playing, treats*, and chatting with friends.

Yesterday did some yardwork (D more than me), I accompanied Jackie, bridesmaids, and fam to the Seattle Wedding Show to get some new and fun ideas for vendors and DIY, got the oil changed in my car (first oil change in the new ‘Trix), then hunkered down to make Chicken Stock, and new hearty recipe*, and watch the new episode of Big Love (so dramatic!)

So, we have lots to share with you this week (thats what the *s mean!) hopefully (if life doesn’t get in the way of posting), and until then i’m sharing this Sneak Peek that was on Design*Sponge last week. Some of the colors and combinations in this home were just so US it made me happy and cheery. I like a clean white modernist house like the rest of the architects out there, but our taste just seems to veer toward the vibrant and occasionally cluttered (i like to think all that stuff helps inspire, ha!) Somehow Raina’s home seems to be the perfect mix of inspiring and colorful without feeling junky. Something to aspire to.
