I want to be here…

This week has been nuts.  We’re gearing up for a huge work event on Sunday so I’ve been crafting, glittering everything, painting… all while keeping up with the normal flow of sourcing and basically accumulating everything from paper samples to wine bottle tops and electrical tape on my desk.  My space is COVERED in stuff right now!  Ugh!

This space, however, is the complete opposite and its simplistic palette yet elegant, warm and welcoming aura floored me when I came across it today.  In the home of Sarah Gibson exists a hallway (beautifully wallpapered in Joy Cho’s line for Hygge & West) that leads to a sunny, clean and bright room, which in my mind I have presumed to be a guest room that I just want to dive into.  Couldn’t you just spend the weekend there?  It makes me want to leave my computer at home and head on over with a book and lay in bed until Sunday.  Ohhh to have a guest room like this one day… :-)  What I absolutely ADORE about this space, however, is that the wallpaper literally makes the hallway come to life.  When you look at hallways from a conventional standpoint, they are just a means of getting you from one room to another, but they don’t have to be that way.  A beautiful light fixture, a perfectly accessorized niche, statement flooring or a simple gallery wall can and will breath life into a hallway, transforming it from a means of getting from one space to another, to a spectacular space of its own that you don’t have to simply rush past when getting from point A to B.  Bravo, Sarah!

I’m off to finish my crafting extravaganza in prep for this weekend!  Be sure to stay tuned on Instagram (@onehopeweddings and @megrobins) for some exciting updates over the course of the next few days!  Wishing you a wonderful remainder to your week :-)

For as long as I can remember, my mom has preached the importance of plants in a space.  From my childhood bedroom as a little girl to my first dorm room and even now… a plant periodically makes its way from the midwest to my California doorstep to spruce things up a bit.  In her words, the simplest little green breaths life into a space and transforms it from a house to a home and from an office to a lively workspace.  As a lover of bright white, airy, clean spaces I couldn’t help but notice recently that the images I find myself drooling over in Pinterest inspiration heaven all have one main thing in common: plants.  The starkest white spaces are instantly taken from cold to warm, welcoming and energy-filled with the addition of even one tiny herb or succulent.  True to many of her life lessons, on this one, I think she was right :-)  Take a look at some of my favorites below:
