[color kreyv]: Gold Pendants

How fabulous are these gold pendants? I definitely feel the need to say fabulous (I'd even go as far as fab) when describing the lighting in these spaces. I think I kind of need them as soon as I get a house. And a white kitchen. And, of course, space for two or three gold pendants.  I've got goals, people.

Rug Pad USA Review

Ok, you guys...are you ready to change the world in which your rugs and feet coexist? Seriously, I will admit that I was a little bit, "eh", when Rug Pads USA contacted me. I mean, let's be honest, I don't exactly have the reputation for putting function before fashion. I usually buy THE cheapest rug pad I can find, and by pad, I mean a super duper thin rubber thing that really just keeps the rug in place. Until I met my rug pad from Rug Pads USA. These bad boys not only keep the rug in place, but also add a ton of cushion, which is a must. I received the 1/2 inch premium-lock felt pad, and I'll have to say, I don't know how I have gone this long without it.    You need these in your life! Rugs Pads USA is giving all [kreyv] readers 15% off with the code pr15off. Trust me, your feet and your children's bottoms will thank you.

Loving Lately | Metal Beds

Hey there. It's Monday. Again. We had a great weekend with lots of family time.  My sister, flew in to take pictures of Baby Salem, and I can't wait to see them. 

In the meantime, I am loving metal beds, and I think they are great for a kid's room--or any room, really. They work well in small spaces, because, well, you can see right through the headboard and footboard. They are a great option for providing height and interest without being intrusive. (Did any of that make sense? Being eloquent is not one of my strengths these days. Good thing I can still spot a cute bed when I see one.) Anyway...check these out.  I promise, they're amazing.

[color kreyv]: Pink

Clearly, we can't get away with calling this plain, old pink, but whether or not the colors below are more of a blush or a salmon is debatable. I really just couldn't decide.  I personally think the first picture has both. Regardless, I think we can all agree on the fact that this color is definitely beautiful, and that I can, indeed, type an entire post with one hand while holding Salem with the other.

Yellow Beds? Don't Mind if I Do!

Sooo, remember when I used to blog? Remember when I used to get dressed and not forget about birthday parties that Stella was supposed to go to? Remember when I felt like I was on top of things instead of barely keeping up? Yeah, that was awesome. Someone please tell me that Jamie will get her groove back. In other news, how cute are these yellow beds? (Ahhh, beds and sleep, how I miss you.)

Upholstered Headboards and the Need for Sleep

Remember that day last week when I was totally bragging about how productive I was? Yeah, that happened once...and it's not looking too promising for it to happen again. Baby Salem is such a good sleeper. She only wakes up 2-3 times per night (one of those times being 6:00 a.m., which is clearly not nighttime, but it still feels like it to me at this point). My problem is that I wake up and can't go back to sleep. Anyone else have that issue? This may be the reason that I only have one thing on the brain today: beds. These are amazing, but who am I kidding? At this point, I'd settle for a blanket on the floor!

Best. Chairs. Ever.

Ok, I can't really prove that these are, in fact, THE best chairs, but, let's be honest...They. Are. A-mazing. Obviously I love a little nailhead trim detail, because, really, we all need a little bit of that in our lives, right? Which one is your fave? I don't like to discriminate, so I would gladly take all three. Actually, make that two of each.
