High Five Friday

High five, it's Friday again! My favorites from the week:

1. One Room Linkup
I showed you all my favorites from the official One Room Challenge on Wednesday. I'm only about a third of the way through all of the linkups, but some not-to-be-missed favorites:

--The 1930's Los Angeles apartment designed by Rosa Beltran. Really love her philosophy about spending for the project as well as the mix of colors. Stunning!!

--Melissa's perfectly organized pantry and the chalkboard wall by her husband on A Prudent Life.

--Pam's beautiful master bedroom retreat for her single-mom friend on Simple Details. {As the self-appointed ambassador to divorce-land, this one was extra-special to me. Any local friends who have been through divorce are welcome to a free room makeover by me anytime!}

--Also touching was the story behind the teen boy bedroom by Amy here. It's a great room that I know my son would beg me for if he saw it...

--Emily's full monty bathroom here is 110% perfect.

And, a special shout-out to my real life friend Dana. Her beautiful neutral room, Bergere chairs, and chandelier-steal(!) are not to be missed.

There are so many more that I'm excited to check out and share... I hope to get through them this weekend and share more favorites next week.

2. Falcone's Enchanted Home
Do you watch Gotham? It's the story of Batman told through Jim Gordon as a young cop in the days after Bruce Wayne's parents are murdered. The sets are so gorgeous! The show recently filmed some scenes at The Enchanted Home. Check out her post here to get the behind-the-scenes story and see more of her beautiful home.

3. Showering Babies
I'm going to a baby shower for my husband's cousin this weekend and was also excited about finding this fun foodie blogger party. The recipes look delicious and each blogger gives some advice for the new mom in a virtual baby shower. It made me  think that this is what I could be doing in my new kitchen besides styling it (the recipes, people, not the baby-making).

4. Car Talkin'
How many Saturdays have I spent road-tripping or errand-running while listening to Car Talk? Lots. I don't know which Tappett Brother Tom Magliozzi was, Click or Clack, but I know he will be missed.

5. Framed 
I'm spending the weekend trying out my five free frames from Warby Parker, and just found out that I've won a free Instagram mini from Framebridge. How sweet is that?! I am in love with their selection of frames especially the faux bamboo and burl wood options! 

Happy weekend! Xoxo
