away for a while…

by kmcopeland

Sorry I haven’t been much of a blogger lately, everyday life is just currently winning in the battle over my time. And now I’m off on a two week trip to Spain that I am pretty darn excited about. But, I promise that I’ll come back refreshed and ready to tell you about all the things I’ve been up to lately…

Have a wonderful few weeks!

ships ahoy

We bought a sailboat this weekend! I am so excited to get it out in the water and can’t wait for all the fun to be had…

Saw this picture while perusing a blog favorite, My New Roots, for recipe inspiration and was immediately drawn to the bright colors. This is exactly how I want my summer to be – cheerful citrusy shades that make it impossible to be anything but happy. Happy Friday!

wishful wednesday (on a thursday)

by kmcopeland

 Wildly obsessed with this house – a renovated train station outside of Århus, Denmark.  I love how they started simple – white, black and wood – then threw in every possible shade of blue.

Juliet Gorman’s ceramic work is pretty, indeed.

wishful wednesday

by kmcopeland

Yes, I know. This is not a house. But it definitely falls into the “it’s really pretty and I wish I could be that cool” category. Therefore, I share. It’s the Mociun pop up shop, and I’m insanely jealous of all the Brooklynites who get to go check it out.

A certain someone (ahem) also has a birthday coming up, and this ring just might be my Happy Birthday to me!

Discovered via Lena Corwin’s gem of a blog.

diy overload

by kmcopeland

Is what’s currently going on in my poor little head.  Projects I’m currently considering:

Wooden pallet turned coffee table. Except maybe with two stacked on top of each other. But I like the glass top. And wheels. (or is this played out?)

Printing my own fabric. Definitely for some much loved throw pillas, and maybe even for recovering a $10 chair.

Trash can turned industrial pendant light for the bedroom, minus the fabric shown in the directions. (Maybe painted bronze?)

Make our dark wood armoire in the bedroom look as close to this as possible. (via here)

And these just for me.

 Not to mention painting our kitchen table and chairs, making curtains, finding art for the walls, making an inside garden…The list is long my friends, very long.

This might answer the question of where I’ve been! Friends came to visit from the US and we traveled around Sweden, hitting Stockholm, Kalmar and Karlskrona (a new favorite).  We had ourselves a good ol’ time. I thought I’d share some random snapshots taken with my iPhone while I work up a for realz post.  Enjoy!
