Friday Five - A Design Challenge, Urban Art, a Styled Coffee Table & More!


Hey guys, it's time for our weekly round up!  This week actually wasn't as busy as last week.  Thank goodness because a girl needs some down time every now and again ;)  I actually did meet with a client literally within walking distance from Uptown Charlotte this week.   And I'm so excited because we're doing an Interior Room Design in a chic - Urban style! 

Okay now onto my weekly design adventures... I participated in a Design Challenge this week hosted by Chairish - I love this site!  The rules were to create a colorful Design Board around two of their vintage chairs.  If you missed my board click here.

Here's the artwork we'll be using for the Urban Design Project I mentioned above.  When I asked my client about the type of artwork she likes she mentioned "cityscapes".  Then later while sourcing art, I saw this abstract cityscape below and knew it was the one!  And it's affordable at less than $300, it's perfect!

Have your guys been to Hobby Lobby Lately?  I went there the other day to return a few items, and these lovelies below stopped me in my tracks!  If you've been looking for a fun way to add a little gold into your home's decor (without breaking the bank) these are great finds!  And they're half off right now at just $20 each!

I styled our coffee table this week.  I used stacked books and magazines, the deer antlers my hubby gave me for Christmas - love him!   A brass tray and my favorite piece, this blue/green iridescent dish I found at a discount store for less than $15.  Loving the overall layered and collected look!

And finally have you ever come across a great deal, be it clothing or home accessories/furnishings and regretted not buying them?  Well that's exactly what happened to me this week while shopping at Home Goods.  I came across these beauties below and passed them up. Seriously, they are upholstered in the prettiest gray linen and priced at just $89 each.  What was I thinking!!  #regret

Okay guys that's my Friday Five and weekly round-up!  I'm loving this new Friday feature by the way.  Have a great week-end!
