Black Window Frame Inspiration

Each year, we try to chip away at various projects or improvements to our 1950s ranch home. We started off the year with new wood tile, and now we are changing out the windows throughout our home. New windows bring more energy efficiency, better sound proofing, and up our curb appeal game. While we enjoy the privacy of solar screens, I’m a little over air conditioning the neighborhood. Today, I’m sharing some of my black window frame inspiration for the upcoming change.

updates in the study

You know I am loving the tropical leaf trend as of late! My third leafy addition is these tropical leaf curtains in the study. While the focus of our study is maximizing productivity, we do spend a good amount of time in there and these add a soft layer as well as serve a purpose.

You’ll notice a new layout from when I first shared my office. I now get to share my office a bit more and with more sharing comes more function. We added a second monitor, printer, and rotated the desk. I enjoy looking at the shelves instead of the wall now; however, the glare on our monitors from the window can be a bit harsh.

When I ordered our new pillow shams and purchased these for the study. The fun leaf print adds another print to this bright room, and I’m excited to share them with you today. I used my favorite matte brass curtain rod again too. At $42 it doesn’t break the bank but is a sturdy weight with full-length curtains.

With the desk floating, I look over the shelves now as I work. I’ve enjoyed the enhanced view so far!

I’ve been thinking about adding some art to the blank wall, but I haven’t found what I want yet. Working from home doesn’t have to be such a drag. I’m already enjoying this playful print to add some cheer to our study!

Hawaii Mornings

Do you have a special place that instantly relaxes you? Hawaii is that place for us. From the minute we land, there is a calmness that sweeps over us. We enjoy long morning walks, relaxing outside, and taking it all in.

Current loves

Happy Friday and welcome back to my second edition of current loves! I’ve got one more super busy week at work but I can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel. This month I thought I’d share a few things I’m loving and some trends I’m trying out. More about these later!

This weekend we are finally going to Xochi. Last month, we went to Caracol (run by the same group) right after I got all the Spanish coastal feels.

Will it be bad if I match the buildings in Greece? So much blue & white.

Adding some green back into my life with this dress and this pillow.
