Jess’s Picks

  • Two home tours caught my eye this week: I love the colors in Vogue’s Minnie Mortimer apartment tour (image above). Bright colors are my favorite pretty much year round. I take a break from it in fall and I have more of a tolerance for pastels in spring but most of the year it’s bright and bold that gets my attention. (via design attractor).
  • And, The Selby’s tour of Frank Valvo at Home in Melbourne. The shot of that refrigerator was made for Pinterest, don’t you think? Todd Selby’s photos are pretty much always great though and it’s such a happy day when something new appears on my feeds. It’s very unobtrusive and totally worth subscribing it. So go do it.

  • Have you seen CowParade? I love it. It has come to Austin and I’m super excited to see all of those painted lovelies around town!
  • I mostly gravitate toward Before and After posts that are quick, easy, and cheap. But this one recently featured on Design*Sponge, is just too beautiful not to share. I love the rugged wood with the white, clean carrera marble. It’s really beautiful.
  • This is a bit off from what I normally post in Reader Roundup, but this week Annie from Annilygreen wrote a beautiful post about the recent birth of her son. It really got me thinking. Although, I have no children of my own, I’m surrounded by babies and women I love who are pregnant. She discusses an alternative birth technique and research pointing to basically how our system in the United States for childbirth needs a serious overhaul. It’s worth the read.
