Cyber Monday #2015

Good morning and Happy Cyber Monday!  Did you have an amazing Thanksgiving?  We hosted family and friends and ate and drank and laughed for days.  In other words ... the perfect weekend. 

It's one of my favorite days of the year!!!  Cyber Monday or as I call it ... the day to finish my shopping!  There are so many great sales today ... and all of them can be had by staying at home and shopping in your jams!  Does it get any better than that?

I have rounded up the sales for you, there are some amazing deals!

Thanksgiving 2015

 

Happy Thanksgiving from the Minear house!  

I am incredibly thankful for each and every one of my precious readers.  I hope you are enjoying a family filled day with love and laughter.


I am incredibly thankful for my family, my babies and my besties!  It is a happy day here in the house for us.  Lots of family, laughter and the promise of an amazing meal later!  

Does it get any better?


Tables are set and we are ready to feast later today.  I am thrilled with my new napkins ... and the price is beyond amazing.  I may have bought these pink, two different greens and a blue.  

Ok, you know I did.  But that price just can't be beat!  


 I am spending the morning relaxing here with my coffee and the parade.  I can't think of a better place to be today.  The air is brisk and we are enjoying our first fire.


Have the most amazing day ... I will be back to blogging regularly next week.  That kitchen plum wore me out!

Happy Turkey Day!

Kitchen & Breakfast Room Source Guide

I am thrilled you like our One Room Challenge kitchen and breakfast room.  We are over the moon excited about it.  Thank you for your amazing comments and emails.  

There are a ton of amazing things featured in our reveal ... and as promised here are the sources.  If you see something you would like to know more about, please leave me a comment!

I still can't believe this is our kitchen!!  I have dreamed of this space for so long and I still have to pinch myself every time I walk into it.  I am thrilled with the result, I love the way it flows with spaces we already have and I love that we gather here daily.  


First of all that dragon ... created by The Pink Pagoda and drawn by her daughter Virginia and can be purchased here.  Isn't she the bomb.com?!!

The blue and white pottery was pulled from the porch.  The small blue and white pottery piece and the brass bamboo container are vintage and all of these pieces were found while shopping for The Cellar.   


Books are from my collection and can be purchased from Amazon.  This stack includes Monograms for the Home || Modern Mix || The Big Book of Chic || All in Good Taste.  It also includes Design Her by Julianne Taylor which will be released on February 1.  Amazing books ... all of them!!



Claire Bella Studio is offering my readers a 20% discount to my readers.  She has amazing fabric, pillows and wallpaper.  Use the code PINKCLUTCH20.  
 

French tassel Pulls || White cabinet hinges || Glass serving bowl || Blue flow container 

Pendant lights and hallway light from Lucent Lightshop.  They are custom, and the closest thing on her site would be these.  She is amazing about creating anything you need!

Bar stools are vintage and the bamboo cushion fabric is from The Chinoiserie Collective.  The hot pink trim fabric was from my fabric stash!

Brass faucet is no longer available, but a similar one can be found here.  


Staffordshire pup cookie jar (no longer available || Candle ||  Hexagonal Mint Julep 

That candle is the best smelling thing on the first floor. I can't believe it smells so amazing and truth be told I bought it for the blue and white tin.  Avocado + Mint = success for sure!


Glasses || Maple Wood Serving Board || Fishtail monogrammed napkins

You know I love all things monogrammed!


Blue and White container (gift) || Monogrammed jar ||  White tile 

I can't believe how different my kitchen looks with the new tile.  I was really wanting to replace the counter tops as well, but the budget just wasn't there.  The new tile shows the counter tops in a completely different light and for the first time since we moved in I actually like them.  It is amazing to me that a simple change can affect so many things!  Well, new tile and the best cabinet paint, ever!!  Grout is Silver.
 

Art is from various sources ...

Pink pineapple || Bird oil painting || Pink floral Swimming Pool print || Tangerine art print || Rain forest art print || White bamboo frame Kayce Hughes || Indygo art print || Float art print || Almond Milk art print 

I will admit a gallery wall is my go to for any extra space I have.  The pieces we chose for this space all fit together in a meaning for me.  Many of you know that I grew up in Florida and that time means so much to me.  It is the source of my love for color and all things bamboo and vintage.  My grandfather used to take me to auctions when I was very little and the antiquing bug bit very early. Each of the pieces of art here represents our Florida history.  It was really fun to me to be able to source so many fabulous pieces from different places that all fit together for such a special purpose.  This is the view I am greeted with when I walk into the house and one I treasure for sure.


Palm Beach swizzle sticks || Foil cocktail napkins



Drexel Server lacquered by Parker Kennedy Living.

When we removed the 1980s built in desk from this area I was shocked to see how much space it gave me.  I had originally decided to use a desk from the den in the space and then realized how dumb that was.  We didn't use the built in desk and all I would be doing was adding another space for my people to drop their stuff.  No bueno!  I happened upon this server while out shopping and walked away from it only to dream of it for two days.  It was perfect for the space and I really needed more counter space.  The coffee bar dream developed driving home that Saturday with my new server in the back of the car.  It was a steal ... at less than $300 and has created an amazing extra counter top for me.  Plus ... it just looks amazing!



Ceiling paint is Borrowed Light and cabinet and trim paint All White in full gloss.  This is my first time using Farrow & Ball paint and I will have a hard time now using anything else.  Do you see that shine?  It is the best paint we have ever used and I could not be more thrilled with the result.  

Blue server from Lanai Vintage.  Lacquered by Parker Kennedy Living in Drawing Room Blue.  



Blue Willow plates are antique from family.  

This six week challenge would not have been possible without sponsors.  They believed in me enough to let me chose products and use credits from them to create a space they had never seen.  I am still in awe of the opportunity to work with so many companies that took me on blind faith.

One Room Challenge ... Kitchen Reveal

It is the most exciting day of the day ... the One Room Challenge reveal!  I feel like a six year old that woke up before dawn on Christmas morning! #butterfliesfordays.  I have been counting down to this day from day one of the challenge but I may, or may not have missed two days sleep with all the excitement building!

I will not dull these beautiful pictures with the sad "befores", those can be found here.  And to warn you there are a lot of photos, but I love photos and you need to see each piece of this room.  I still can't believe this is my completed kitchen.  #kidinacandystore.

Without further ado, aka my boring chit chat, our brand new Kitchen and Breakfast room ...





Let's pause one second and talk about that amazing dragon.  I have vowed to have art from The Pink Pagoda in each of my One Room Challenges.  It is a tradition for me.  This piece goes way above anything I have ever received from her.  She designed this piece just for me ... and her precious daughter Virginia drew the amazing, drop dead gorgeous dragon.  Isn't he just beyond all words?  Virginia, I love him so much.  Thank you for making your mother's vision for the art in my kitchen come true.  You are one talented girl!  You can shop this piece and the rest of Jennifer's art here ...
















Spring 2014 One Room Challenge in the Laundry down the hall ... I know they will be best friends for sure!  It fits in perfectly!
