my friday five

It's the Sunday that mothers 
look forward to all year, 

Here are some things 
that caught my eye this week. 

Dressing up a plain cake with
 fresh whipped cream and a lots of yummy berries.

The combination of 
old-fashioned roses and vintage china
is always classic.

 A soothing leg treatment 
with beautiful results

My new favorite scent.

I want to try and recreate
this pretty table setting. 

I love everything about it!

Wouldn't it be sweet for Mother's Day?

room & board's amazing outdoor furnishings

Pops of yellow look amazing against 
classic gray in these cozy
 upholstered pieces. 

Visually, Room and Board is known for 
mid-century, sleek but comfortable designs, 
but they also take a responsible approach to design. 

Their pieces are American made 
and environmentally accountable, 
and include products that are made 
from recycled milk jugs, bicycle tires, 
and naturally sustainable materials. 

Not only that, 
but their approach is to make their
furniture stand the test of time. 

This furniture is built to last and will 
not end up needlessly filling our landfills 
like a lot of other furnishings, 
especially outdoor pieces.  

After visiting the showroom this week 
near Costa Mesa, I had to share 
some of my favorite looks with you. 

The Montego Collection is paired 
with Boyd Ottomans in my 
favorite color, "ocean".

The indoor/outdoor Tiffany "ghost" 
chair is my favorite, 
especially when styled with the 
granite topped Portica table

Classic french inspired bistro chairs 
look perfect with these two
Portica tables set end-to-end.

The Montego Collection features
 Ipe wood and stainless steel frames.

Why not have a sectional outdoors? 
This one can weather the elements!

The Emmet chair is the modern take 
on the adirondack chair. 

They're made from 100 percent recycled 
high-density plastic and features a stainless 
steel bottle opener under the arm for 
effortless outdoor entertaining. 

Who wouldn't be happy lounging in these orange Maya Chaises? 

How cool are these Mini T table top fireplaces?

Green is always a soothing color outdoors, 
as seen here in the Sabrina chair.

Four Cruz lounge chairs and a Laguna ottoman 
create an intimate conversation area.

Modular pieces can be rearranged to suit your mood.
