Target + Oh Joy!

One of my favorite design bloggers is ‘Oh Joy’- a Philadelphia (with Thai parents!) transplant living in California. She just designed a party line for Target (my weakness) and everything in it is perfection. I love the bright colors and the gold accents. Perfect for a summer party- and most of it is plastic or disposable eating-wear in gorgeous patters and colors- so you don’t have to worry about a major clean-up or dropping something on the way from the kitchen or grill to table!

This is reason enough to find a house with outdoor entertaining space!

Why I want to learn upholstery

Another installment of the renovation of ‘Oh Joy’s’ new studio by Emily Henderson & Sam Gluck re-affirms that I reallyyyyy want to learn how to upholster furniture. And find a reason to search vintage stores for furniture. These chairs are amazing, but wait till you see how not-awesome they were before. Purchased for $80 each and then $80 to re-upholster. Click the link for the story.

Can I please move in?

This, my friends, is something I could move right into. Colors, patterns, design, a happy thing every place you look! Designers Emily Henderson & Samantha Gluck designed and decorated blogger/creator OhJoy’s new studio and revealed section 1 today: “The Living Room”. I tend to buy bright and colorful things, and realized from reading this post that I should therefore paint any walls where I live a neutral like gray or white because:

“if you are someone who loves color then you are going to tend to buy things that are colorful, right? So if you paint your walls a bright color and you are buying colorful furniture it can go ‘Willy Wonka’ or ‘SpongeBob’ really fast”

Duly noted!
