Five Friday Favs!
TGIF! You know what that means...
The Five Friday Favs brought to you by C Studio!
Every Friday we share our top five pins of the week with everything from interior design (of course) to food (foodie at heart) to fashion (self-proclaimed shopaholic, unfortunately).
I hope you all enjoy and are inspired on a weekly basis!
I can't get enough of this amazingly beautiful kitchen! I just can't help myself... I have a long-running love affair (even though I hate to cook) with designing kitchens. They are the heart of the home and can be so fun and unique to design, depending on the space, style, and lifestyle of the end users. I love the dark black perimeter cabinets mixed with the dark window mullions against the stark contrast of the bright white islands and countertops, while all being grounded by rich, warm wood flooring. So good!!! And the metal inlay detail on the sides of each of the islands... don't even get me started!!! Can I just move in, please?! I would love to hear about your dream kitchen space, like this stunner via Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles by Robert Brown Interior Design, Kingdom Woodworks and Harrison Design. BRAVO team!!!
Lemon Herb Mediterranean Pasta Salad...
This just looks like the most perfect, fresh pasta salad for all of the end-of-summer BBQ's we should be attending! Especially to all my readers up north... hate to remind you, but September is just around the corner! ;) I can always go for a good pasta salad and it's nice to find new recipes to mix it up from your classic go-to recipes. Yummmmm!

There is just something about beautiful, fresh flowers... I love having them around my home and they always bring a smile to my face (as I'm sure many of you can agree), and add just the right touch of color and nature. Bringing the outdoors in can be such an aesthetically and psychologically uplifting thing to do in your home! I always love looking through floral designers' Instagram & Pinterest pages to get inspiration for my clients and future installations.

I don't know why, but I just love this outfit! Love the mix of colors (not too colorful for me since I am a lover of all things neutral), the textural, oversized hat, grey tee, and almost blush-toned skirt with button detail, and of course, the classic camel-toned leather bag that goes well with just about everything in your closet, in my opinion! And most importantly, it looks so comfortable and effortless... love when an outfit looks like you just threw a few pieces together and it just so happened to work perfectly! Wish I could pull of this look myself, but I always feel like a sack of potatoes in these skirts!!! Is it just me or does anyone else have this problem?! :D

I think I may have saved my favorite for last this week! Click on the photo above or follow the link here to the This is Happiness blog, where Becky discusses all things from design and fashion to entertaining and food. You can never go wrong with a classic facade like this one... so beautiful and pristine, standing tall in white with a grand entrance and dormer windows. Also, really loving the simple, green landscaping that only adds to the already perfect symmetry of this home. I'll be daydreaming about this one the rest of the day.....
Have a fun and safe weekend everyone! xo - Chelsey
