look for less: office space

It may be because I have my own mini home office redesign on the brain, but it seems that gorgeous, chic work spaces are everywhere I look lately (case in point: this article, this article, and this pinterest board). I pinned some really great office spaces on my own interiors board this week, so I decided to pick a few of my favorites to recreate for you! Below I've shown you how to get a room that looks pretttttttty close to the photo. And, because you know I'm always looking for a deal, I've also put together a room with a similar look, but for a lot less.

Happy Valentine's Day

pink-peony-bouquetHappy Valentine's Day, my loves! Here are a few sweet links to carry you into the weekend. I hope you spend it with the person (or people) you love!

Check out Google's logo today, it's so sweet to hear others' stories. If you don't have a Valentine, you can borrow one of mine (sorry J :)) Chuck Close gets intimate with some of the biggest names in Hollywood (and the results are beautiful). Test your skills with the Great Language Game (I got a 700! I'm more cultured than I thought ;)) This crow blew my mind. And also now my fear of birds feels justified. What company slogans would be if they were honest. These actual best friends forever are adorable! Amazing perfectly timed photos. Also, celebrities as Disney princes and princesses. These new stock photos of women are gorgeous and inspiring.

New Hair?

My hair has finally grown out to the length I've been wanting (I have the slowest-growing hair ever), so I'm starting to think about new haircuts and styles to make it look its best. If you're like me and have a slight fear of commitment every time you think about changing your hair, then the Instyle Hollywood Makeover tool is perfect for you. It lets you try on hair styles and colors worn by tons of today's celebrities, and you can filter by length, trend, color, hair type, and more. I use it every time I want to do anything to my hair, major or minor. So, on my lunch break today, I decided to "try on" a few different styles to see what I might like...and maybe a couple crazy ones just for fun. Here are a few of the contenders (not necessarily in the color shown):

5-6

I've already polled some friends and have a couple favorites picked out, but I'd love to hear what you think! Which is your favorite?
