Weekend Pretties

I hope everyone is having a great weekend.  I live for the weekends :)

Here are some chic pictures that have nothing to do with one another, but I had to share…

I’ve told y’all before that I love twin beds.  Symmetry always catches my eye so a twin bedroom is the best opportunity to have lots and lots of symmetry.  What about THREE twin beds?  Love it three times as much… Not to mention how precious is this bedroom designed by Cathy Kincaid… i.e. bedspreads, beams, benches – did not even mean to use alliteration there :)

So many chic things going on in this picture below… Peacock blue door with Brass nailheads… Grasscloth on the walls… Is that a light blue painted ceiling?  I wish we could see what was beyond that door:  a chevron rug and hand painted wallpaper perhaps?

Sometimes I see a room like this and think “oh my gosh this is the cutest room ever – I love color!”…

And then ten minutes later I see this room and think “what?  I hate color!  Color is bad.  Always stick to neutrals”…

In conclusion, I am completely indecisive about what I want, but I can tell other people exactly what they want… Good thing I haven’t started designing my dream house yet!

Nifty Nailheads

Nailheads are like jewelry for furniture.  They come in all different shapes, sizes, and finishes…

A few furniture pieces that utilize nailheads…

 

Arteriors‘ Tennyson bench

 

 

The Marcello barstool from Ballard Design is one of Mallory Mathison Inc.‘s favorite barstools.  The upholstered arms make it feel like a comfortable club chair.  And those large nailheads on the side of the arms add the perfect finishing touch. And it’s on sale right now!

 

 

Bungalow 5’s Marco side table would look great in the right setting.  Like a kid’s room or playroom.  Also available in black.

 

 

If you reallyyy love nailheads, you’ll probably like Bernhardt’s Cabrillo Nailhead Chest… A little too funky for me though.

 

 

I would like Noir’s Bacalle ottoman a lot more if it wasn’t so dark.

 

  

Nailheads should be essential on a simple, solid headboard.  Wisteria doubled the bling with two rows of nailheads on their Queen Anne headboard.

 

And now for some pinterest pictures that display good use of nailheads…

I absolutely love the Greek Key design of the nailheads on this banquette in Traditional Home.

[Nathan Schroder] LOVE the upholstered drawer fronts outlined with nailheads on these nightstands.  Although I’m a little distracted by that fabulous green lamp!

Notice the alternating large and small nailheads on this leather stool.  And they are spaced out.  The possibilities are endless.  Gina Berschneider red leather ottoman via One Kings Lane.
