Even the Starbucks in Barcelona are cool. Maybe I should just change my blog name to Christie’s industrial rustic obsession…
Cement walls and floors. Farmhouse table.
Old bathtub used as island for sugar, napkins, and stirrers.
Open shelves, beautiful tile and size arranged mugs.
Table with old steam heater as base and rough rustic wood top.

One of my favorite blogs Apartment Therapy is just a few days away from their annual Room for Color contest. Not too long ago, Facebook moved to a new site in Menlo Park and I have to say, our new digs are pretty colorful and have quite the urban/retro design scheme going on. I’m not sure who the lucky designer is/was, but I”m a little jealous of her job. I also kiiiinda want to steal some of the furniture for my place .
Terrariums: so hot right now.
Love that crocheted ottoman/seat.
Bright orange couch and crate boxes.
Turquoise and yellow is my fave color combo right now. Gotta love the mid century modern coffee table and the bright blue couch too.
Oh hello modern wood paneled wall and industrial light fixture.
Not sure if these are comfortable or practical, but I love ‘em and want ‘em.
Exposed beams and that yellow and turquoise combo again.

I’m definitely in that time of my life where I’m surrounded by all things wedding related. Not only am I planning my own wedding (September 23rd!!!), but I also have friends, family and co-workers planning weddings too! I’m having so much fun being inspired by the plethora of creative ideas out there and already have a hefty to-do list of all the things I want to make. First stop – moss letters for my bff’s wedding in less than a month (eeekkk!!!).
I’ve seen these in bridal magazines and wedding blogs and think they are adorable. My bff’s colors are green and black so these would fit in perfectly with her décor. The ones pictured above are selling on Etsy.com for $80. Super cute, but I think I can make them cheaper
I found some 12” paper mache letters online at JO-ANN’s for $3.99 each and even found a 50% off one item coupon. SCORE!
I placed an order for these and will be hunting for some dried moss to use with the ol’ glue gun on these bad boys. I’d prefer to find in person so I can see what it looks like up close and personal. I’m going to also search for black satin ribbon to tie in a pretty bow so they will hang nicely on the back of the bride and grooms’ chairs. Because I’ll be using dried moss, these can also be used as home décor after the wedding, which is a double whammy.
I’ll be sure to post some completed pics when I’m done!
