Four Favorites: Springtime Hues

Happy Friday, friends! In an effort to blog a little more consistently during this crazy transitional period of life, I thought I would start a fun new column: Four Favorites. Every Friday(ish) I'll be sharing a few of my favorite things from around the web. Short and simple... I hope you enjoy it!

Today's favorites are inspired by my need for springtime weather. This week has been a long and cold one in Michigan, so I'm gravitating toward all things light and bright.

  1. This red poppy pillow by Onan Befort is like instant spring for your couch.
  2. Weekend baking: carrot cake pancakes with white chocolate pecan butter. Oh yes.
  3. I've been piecing together inspiration for baby girl's nursery, and I think I've finally settled on a palette: coral, tangerine, mustard, gray and a little bit of light aqua. At first I was afraid it would be color overload, but then I spotted alllll the colors in this beautiful quilt from Urban Outfitters. It's a done deal.
  4. Just in time for spring, artist and friend Michelle Schneider recently completed an amazing painting challenge: 12 birds in 12 days. Hop on over to her blog for more details! (my favorite is the swan couple, hands down.)

Chris and I are looking at a few houses tomorrow morning and celebrating a friend's birthday, but the rest of our weekend will probably be spent in pjs. Possibly eating those pancakes. Tweaking our baby registry. Sounds pretty good to me... enjoy the weekend!

Katherine! You have such great taste! ;)

i do love all of these things- Oana Befort is so inspiring isn't she? just love her style. also, have you tried joy the baker's "single lady" pancakes? i make them for myself ALL the time. so good. just double the recipe for two. i'm going to have to try those carrot cake pancakes ASAP. and the quilt! how precious.

Hurray! I love the new series!

I think that color combo you chose for the nursery is perfect. They are all complimentary and bright without being too girly. I love it. I can't wait to see it when it's finished! :) We are currently in a complete renovation process here at the apartment and I'm about ready to throw in the towel - I'm so tired! Maybe I will take a break and make those pancakes instead ;)

PJs and Pancakes = a perfect weekend. I love that palette for the nursery, I never doubted that that little girl of yours would begin her life with a beautiful space.
