A-Z Series: W is For

Have you been to Tiffany's blog Living Savvy before?? Then you already know how fabulous she is and how many truly amazing, budget friendly projects she has on her blog.  I think I could spend hours reading through all of her creative, inspiring posts.  She has been working on a One Room Challenge-recently shared her Week Five Update (it's a six week challenge), and here is the how-to for those gorgeous night stands.  She also brilliantly did a No Spend Challenge throughout January.  This was one of my favorite pieces, and it was something I wanted to do myself.  I would have never come up with this idea though.  As you can tell, I really do love her blog and projects and am thrilled to have her sharing her favorite W's today!

.................

Hey There!  I am Tiffany from Living Savvy!  I was so excited when Carly asked me to guest post for her A-Z Series; then she told me I would have the letter W.  I read the email and said "what?  I can't think of anything I like that starts with a W?!?!"  And my husband looked at me and said "really?" as he peers over to the stack of empty wine bottles on the counter.... "really?!"  HA!  With that one being accounted for, I was excited to brainstorm for some others...
{White}


I love the idea of an all white room!  The space feels clean and uncluttered when everything is white.  A bathroom with white tile and white towels... just sparkles with all of the plumbing fixtures and glass!  With 2 little boys I could probably never pull it off, but maybe one day I can have an all white room!
{Wainscoting & Wallpaper}


Wainscoting and wallpaper have made a huge comeback in the last couple of years, but I am sure some would argue that they never went away!  That may be true, but today's version is way much cooler!  I love the graphic papers that are great for an extra accent pop.  And I love how the traditional chair rail and plate rail are being redone!
{Water}
When I think of water, I think of the ocean.  I have always been drawn to the colors of the waves, and they different blues against the blue sky.  My favorite place is anywhere there is water... I would prefer the ocean, but lakes are good too! {Wine}
As you can see I love my wine!  I love all things wine; drinking wine, wine art, wine cork art.  We actually even have started to make our own wine with another wine loving couple, and we just bottled our first vintage!

Thank you so much Carly for inviting me to join the series!  It was fun to get my brain thinking and obviously I like a lot of thing that start with W!

What?! Just bottled your first vintage-I love it! Thank you so much, Tiffany! I will be staring at these images for days. I especially cannot get enough of white decor.

I also love West Elm & West Avenue Jewelry. Why hello gorgeous monograms--say hello to a bracelet I love, to a necklace I love, and to earrings I love. 

Happy Wednesday! Have you been stalking The Everygirl as much as me already?!

I love ALL of these W's. Also, if my boyfriend wasn't such a mess, I'd be able to do more white. I wanted a white couch and he looked at me like "yea...you know I'm going to spill my chocolate ice cream on it". ARGH!

I LOVE white. It's my favorite color for everything: clothes, interiors, cars, you name it. It's so clean and refreshing but also classic and sophisticated. Beautiful photos, too!

thanks for introducing such an awesome lady!!

if i had to pick a "w" that i like, it would be weather. i love it when it rains and i'm inside reading a book. preferably, one with a complicated love story.

Emily said...

Great guest post -- I'm right along with "W" is for "Wine" :)
Oh - Fancy That.

Grace - Stripes and Sequins said...

I am crazy obsessed with that wall of white frames - so fantastic!
