For the Cool Cats

How awesome is this crazy cat scratching post / climbing thingy! It's freakin' Tetris for cats!! Seriously, it's called Katris Block Modular Furniture!  I'm pretty sure I hear Elsie saying "buy this for me, please".

Chairish Mix n Chic Style Challenge

So when I got an email from Chairish about taking part in their Mix n Chic Style Challenge, I was all "I'M IN!" The challenge was to put together a moodboard incorporating some Chairish pieces into a shabby chic design. . .  So shabby chic isn't exactly in my wheelhouse, but I figured I could put my spin on it.  

Without further ado, my take on Shabby Chic living room design –
You start with a neutral base, add touch of floral, some natural material, a bit of metal, and a few pops of color and then BOOM, you've got Modern Boho Shabby Chic à la Laurendy.

fine print: I participated in this challenge because of my never ending love of moodboards, all options are my own and I did not receive any compensation for this post.

You've Got Options: Round Industrial Bookshelf

While the Anthropologie bookshelf has better legs, you can't beat the price of the World Market piece. . .  Seriously you get the same look for $918 less if you don't mind the spider-legs (which I don't).

Boho Bedroom Inspiration

Speaking of rooms that need to get their act together - my bedroom is crying out for a makeover. . . though does it really count as a makeover if the room was never really done to begin with? Seriously, what is it, going on seven years now and I never even hung anything on my bedroom walls.  

I want to work with what I have, maybe mixing in a few new pieces here and there.  What I have is a mix of modern, rustic, vintage and industrial. . . so I'm thinking boho / eclectic is my best bet, so I gathered up some boho bedroom inspiration to get me started. . .

Makers Gonna Make Print Round-Up

At some point I am going to have to get my forever messy craft room whipped into an actual studio (I can't keep doing metal work from my sofa).  And in pure Laurendy fashion, instead of clearing out said room, I put together a round-up of free Makers Gonna Make printables.

2. another one from Delia Creates
4. and one more from Delia Creates

Clearly I'm going to have to have one of these hanging on my studio walls. . .
