You know I love patterns. I can’t get enough, so naturally I want to wallpaper my whole house. I love all the options at Wallpapered. They have a whole textures section with brick, wood planks, and concrete. There’s also a new maps section that includes antique maps and even a customized local map. Plus, they work with designers to offer pretty patterns like the turquoise one above by Yuyu. I also love how you can even upload your own patterns or pictures! How neat would it be to have such personalization in your home? Check out their Facebook, Twitter, and design blog for more ideas.
Which would you choose?

It all started with those tiny brass evil eye studs. I started wanting more. They’re so creepy and cute. I didn’t know those could even be a description for something together! I had been dreaming up a pillow version for years now, so maybe a tutorial is in the future! We came back from Cabo San Lucas last week and those blue and white ceramic eyes by Leah Goren remind me of all the pretty pottery they have there. I just can’t get enough of little eyes staring back at me.

I will also have a spot in my heart for a break in color and going back to the basics of black and white. You may remember this recent B&W Polka Dot post. Today I’m going more modern graphic with a black and white grid pattern. I love both the square graph paper version and the painterly version like in that cute tea towel.

After working many a weekends this month with more to go, A & I have the travel bug like no other. We just want to fly away somewhere and escape for a while. Luckily we have a Mexico trip planned with some of my best pals in August.
You may also not know that I had a really crazy globe collecting phase. It’s over now, but the entire collection is all over the house. It’s kind of ridic. I will always have a soft spot for maps. They are just so interesting and seeing how they’ve changed through the years. So, let’s daydream in maps today! I love that Topshop dress!

It’s been perfect kite flying weather lately. I’ve flown one as a kid, but I’m not sure if I could manage now. But, with this awesome Fredricks & Mae version, I might just be convinced to try again. We’ve been trying to bike around more, so these coordinating accessories would be perfect for a ride to the park and a kite attempt!
Have you ever flown a kite?
