I used to not enjoy Monday mornings.
But nowadays Monday mornings often mean it’s time for an official Lark & Lily meeting… and suddenly I’m starting to like Monday mornings
Here’s a sneak peek of a project we’re starting to plan. It’s a kitchen reno– a budget kitchen reno– that we’re getting pretty excited about… stay tuned for more details!
There have been a few new packages arriving for Lark & Lily these days– we’ve re-ordered some new paint chips for our fan decks and received some new fabric samples from some of our favorite online vendors.
These are just a few of my favorites…
On a fantastic sunny day like today– I am dreaming of some colorful throw pillows made with the Dwell Studio Citrine Vintage Blossom fabric. So gorgeous!
A few months ago I was shopping at a local thrift store. I found this fantastic retro blue velvet chair with orange piping. It was a steal at $25, it was in great condition, it swiveled, it rocked– it was awesome! I snapped a picture of it– and found that I couldn’t seem to get it out of my mind. I knew it would look fantastic in a colorful baby boy’s nursery… so I decided to build a nursery around the chair!
This is a budget nursery– all the elements are reasonably priced and available at big box stores or online. Take a look at the inspiration board!
In the end I didn’t personally need the chair. But I was really hoping that some cute little boy would get to have it in his room. And what do you know– it happened! One of my good friends saw the chair a few days later and snatched it up for her adorable little guy. It looks fantastic in his room– if I do say so myself!
Customized design plans are available for both local and long distance clients. All of our design packages include inspiration boards that are customized to the individual’s specific style and needs. If you are interested working with Lark & Lily Interiors– please don’t hesitate to contact us for more information.
Have a great weekend everyone!
Elissa and I are both getting ready to start kitchen renovations in our own homes, which we are hoping will start in the next few months. Naturally, we are pinning kitchens like crazy and we seem to find a new kitchen to love every week. Here are a few white kitchens that I have been loving lately.

When we moved into our current home it was… well… colorful. Every room was a different vibrant shade– and some rooms had multiple colors! I love color– just not that much all at once. Slowly but surely, each room has gotten a makeover. While I love the transformation in each room of our house– my favorite “new” room has got to by my daughter’s nursery. It’s bright and cheerful– it’s got some pink going on– but it’s not overly girly and frilly.
The latest addition to her room is the gallery wall– it’s full of pictures and images that are meaningful. They are framed in a mix of new and old frames.
Instead of purchasing pre-made bedding I made my own custom crib sheet and pillows. It you can’t find something you like in the stores– you’ve got to make it yourself!
I couldn’t bring myself to post the “before” pictures at the beginning– this is supposed to be a blog of beautiful space after all! So, I’ll just sneak it in here at the end. See you later purple picket fence!
I love my home. I love that we’ve made it ours.
