Trendy Tuesday

I’m so glad Monday is over.  I’m already looking forward to the weekend (I’m hosting my friends at my parents cabin again!).  Mallory Mathison Inc. seems to be very busy, as usual; and I am thankful, as usual :)…   But I’m still an advocate of a 4 day work week!

These are just some pretty pictures that I had to share.  I discovered them in various places in the blogging/social media world.   There’s no common thread here except that I love them and had to share them with you lucky people!

The Best Feelings in the World.  I would have to agree with most of these.  Especially the “crawling into bed after a long day”.

For some reason I looove this house.

Love the fabric on this wing chair.  Not sure of the source though.

Red and Pink

In honor of yesterday being Valentine’s Day, I thought I’d share some lovely pink and red pretties.  Actually, I forgot to make a post for Valentine’s Day.  I wish I could say I’m still getting used to this blogging thing, but that doesn’t work anymore since Summerfield is more than one year old (still can’t can’t believe it!  I still feel challenged in the blogging area… maybe you can tell, haha).  Therefore, no excuses.  I will remember my Hallmark holidays and plan my blog posts accordingly from now on ;)

By the way, this is my Valentine.  He is the sweetest, cutest, most loving Valentine in the whole world!  His name is Gus and I’m so sad we didn’t spend Valentine’s Day together.  XO

Map is Hung!

So, I finally hung my “vintage” Chattanooga map!  It only took over 3 months to decide where to hang it… I think I’m getting better at making decisions quickly ;)

I also hung another piece of art that I got for Christmas.  It is the cutest print of a bee done by Chattanooga artist Liz Nichols.  Her art is amazing – you must check it out! Her website doesn’t display much of it, but you can check out her pinterest board (I want everything).  AND it is available through Sophie’s in Chattanooga.  Sophie’s is probably my favorite store in Chattanooga… I could go on forever about what a cute shop it is, but that deserves a post of it’s own :) … What do you think?

Marvelous Maps!

I bought the best “vintage” map from Etsy a couple of months ago (sadly, I think the map that I ordered is no longer available, but there is a smaller/similar one here).  I love it but of course I cannot make a decision about WHERE to hang it.  Naturally, the map is of my favorite city and hometown:  Chattanooga, Tennessee.  Therefore, I want to hang it somewhere prominent.  The problem is that there are only so few prominent wall spaces in my tiny apartment.  So I might have to do some rearranging… I will be sure to let you know when I do find the right place (and post pictures, of course), but for now take a look at these chic maps… Have a great weekend!

Tortoise Shell

I absolutely love a tortoise shell finish… on just about anything! Sunglasses, picture frames, furniture, you name it. It’s so classic. It will never go out of style or get old. The first thing I think of when I think of a tortoise shell finish is probably these:

Ray-Ban’s Wayfarar in Tortoise… BUT a tortoise shell finish looks fabulous on just about anything. Especially furniture and home accessories.

That table! Interior design by Miles Redd.

How gorgeous is this tortoise shell mirror? I wish I knew where it was from :(

If only I could afford Jimmy Choo’s Tortoise wedges (available at Nordstrom)… sigh.

Would love to have one of these gorgeous decorative boxes from Karen Robertson for my coffee table… whenever I get a coffee table ;)

Karen Robertson has other beautiful tortoise shell objects too!

And then she also has actual turtle shells! I’d love to hang a grouping on a wall somewhere in my apartment.

There’s even a green one!!! I’d love to hang this guy on the wall.

I might settle for this tortoise shell iphone case from JCrew until I can afford the real thing.

I’m obsessed with most furniture from Oly Studio, but I’m especially obsessed with their dark shell finish… Like on the Jeremy side table.

Tory Burch is also a big fan of tortoise shell. There are all kinds of tortoise shell jewelry, handbags, belts, on the website. [shown: Octagon Resin Necklace]

Printed Faille handbag with tortoise accents

Jackie O would love these Warby Parker sunglasses.

I even found tortoise shell napkins on Pinterest! Available from Horchow.

Cheap Art Alert!

I was wasting time on Pinterest, looking at different blogs the other day when I discovered an amazing post from the blog Style by Emily Henderson.  The post was called Top 5 Most Affordable Online Art Sources.  I started clicking around and discovered so many bargains from the resources.  I couldn’t just keep that information all to myself — I had to share these great resources with YOU.  Here are some pieces that I found:

That is a framed and matted 1900 map of Paris from 20 x 200.  Framed and matted for $200?  You can’t find that just anywhere.  Oh and if you just want the map it’s $60.  What a bargain! 

 

I was very tempted to purchase the above framed photograph as a Christmas or birthday present for one of my Alabama fan family members.  Also, know that there are different frame options: black, white, natural, with or without a matte (I’ll take the matted white for my apartment, thanks).  [Animal Locomation] Also from 20 x 200.

 

These Embroidery Flowers by Emily Renouf would look so cute in a kitchen, bathroom, or children’s room.  At $25, how could you not buy?  [from Little Paper Planes]

 

Kristofer Mills Print 3

 

 Kristofer Mills Print 2.  The above two prints remind me of the abstract black and white drawings that I’m working on for my own apartment.  In a gallery wall together they would look so great and add just the right modern/abstract touch to a traditional interior.  For $65 and $35 repectively, all they need is a simple Hobby Lobby white frame and they’re ready to hang!

 

 

 Moving on to Mammoth & Company, we have Taryn Coulsons’ Cobalt Teal I acrylic painting.  The price is $350 for a 16 x 20 because this is an original painting.  How pretty are those blues?  Once again, an abstract piece like this would add just the right modern touch to a traditional space.  It is also available as an 8 x 10 print for $20!!!

 

I love the horse photographs by Troy Moth.  This is just one of the many available on Mammoth & Company’s website.  See more here and here.  Love the horses and I’m not even a “horse person”.

 

HOW cute is the giraffe above?  Seriously this doesn’t even have to go in a kid’s room – it’s a great conversation piece for just $18!  From Society 6.

 

History Lesson by Emily Rickard.  You can get it on a stretched canvas for $85 – no frame required!

 

Oh Deer by The Lepolas from The Calm Gallery.  15.5 x 21.5 for $28.63. 

 

And of course, Society 6 has my favorite poster, Keep Calm and Carry On, in a variety of colors ($28.63 each).  I love the grey one above because it’s so calm.

 

That’s all I have for now, but take a look yourself and see what you find :) 

ROLL TIDE!!!!!

Botanicals

Botanicals are an inexpensive, easy way to add artwork to a room.  They add a little greenery too.  And they’re almost always on sale at One Kings Lane and Etsy

Suzanne Kasler designed some framed botanical prints for Ballard Design.  I love the sepia tone.

 

Wisteria has a variety of framed botanicals and other prints.  I love the framed butterfly prints and other insects.

 

I think my favorite are the simple green Perennial ferns from Wisteria.  We all know I love a little green :)

 

 

 

 For some reason my gmail is acting funny today and I can’t source the images perfectly but I did my best. 

All unknown pictures are from Pinterest.

Black and White Abstract

I’ve been working on some artwork for my apartment lately.  I’ve been drawn to black and white abstract pieces for a long time.  I took several art classes in high school and in college.  Instead of buying something or finding a poster, I figured why not put my skills to the test?   How hard can it be?  We’ll see…

Lorraine love

I had to share this picture because of the gorgeous painting over the bed. It kind of takes my breath away. I can’t wait for the day when I can afford fabulous art like this!!! I wish I had a better picture of it… or better yet, I wish I had the painting ;) I’m not sure who the artist is but it looks a lot like Lorraine Christie‘s work, whos paintings are sold at Huff Harrington, a gallery here in Atlanta.

I’m obsessed with Lorraine Christie’s paintings. If I had the money to buy fabulous art, one of her paintings would be my first purchase for sure.

Here’s a taste of her work:

I went to Paris a few years ago so this painting with the Eiffel tower in the background speaks to me. I have the perfect place for it in my living room. Maybe they will hold it for me for a few hundred years while I save my money? I mean if only Lorraine met me she would probably just let me have it, ya know?! ;)

“Paris Remembered”

“New York Remembered”

“A Kiss From the London Sky”
