Today’ s Music Monday may make you laugh, it may bring back memories of watching every episode of the OC on Thursday nights way back when.
The song is Maybe I’m Amazed (The Jem version) and it was played on the last episode of Season 1 of the OC at Caleb and Julie’s wedding.
Justin and I got out all of our OC boxed sets last year and rewatched them all, and I have to say it was a fun little blast from the past. So fun that I’ve been watching season one episodes again at any chance I can get. Seriously my most current guilty pleasure.
My favorite line from this song:
Maybe i’m amazed at the way you pulled me out of time,
It’s no lie that I like to find things around me and use them for inspiration – that’s the reason I tear so many things out of magazines and order paper samples like its my job, and that’s why I’m so obsessed with Pinterest.
Having a visual representation of what I’m feeling or thinking gets me so excited – almost to the point of giddiness. I love to see collections of ideas and forming them into an idea or design of my own.
That’s why I’ve been obsessed with these real life inspiration boards lately – not just the Pinterest ones of the ones I create for Oh, What Love. The real life, reach out and touch it inspiration board are what I get most inspired by.
Here’s what I’m talking about:
Now I know Justin is too much of a neat freak to let me do this in our house (he would say there was crap everywhere and want me to take it down) I will be doing this when I get my own studio some day. Until then, I’ll settle with Pinterest 🙂
Just in time for Valentine’s Day, I have a full blown heart obsession. I know, super cliché, right?
Being a big sap when it comes to love, I think I’ve had this obsession for a long, long time, but when a little email from BHLDN landed in my inbox last week I knew that this obsession was going to be full fledged.
The tiny little heart ring in the image below did me in.
I LOVE it!
So much that I found some other little heart wedding details and I want to share them with you now!
I think I just love tiny, muted red hearts with a gray palatte. Something so dreamy about it.
Not sure what exactly got me hooked on these – maybe images from the Restoration Hardware or West Elm catalog – but who can resist the warm glow of raw light bulbs?
I think Edison Bulbs are the perfect touch to add a rustic and vintage feel to your decor, Justin and I even found some old trouble lights with Edison Bulbs and used them as pendant lighting in our new kitchen (I promise, I’ll post pics soon!).
Another amazing idea – Design*Sponge featured the Brinson’s lovely home in the Design*Sponge at Home book and they took 100 lightbulbs and made them into a chandelier, lighting only 10 of the bulbs. Light from the lit bulbs bounces off the unlit bulbs to create lots of light. Definite gorgeousness.
For your wedding, find a venue that uses Edison Bulb lighting or bring in your own lighting that uses them.
Here are a few looks I’m mildly obsessed with right now:
What do you think? Would you use Edison Bulbs on your big day or decorate with them in your home?
