Style Scouting: Vol. 191

Thanks for stopping by for this week’s Style Scouting. My Sunday post where I share the random stuff that captured my attention or inspired me that I found online.

Post You May Have Missed This Week:

This past week I posted about going house hunting and held a giveaway for one reader to win 3 decorating books.

I wish I could give the books to all of you who entered, but I only have one of each.

Congratulations to the winner of the books who was randomly selected: Paula(acricket). I will contact you via email to get your mailing address. :-)

Upcoming this week I am excited to post about what I did to my master bath and a second post about how I found the inspiration to declutter my clothes and closet. It makes me happy to see both rooms clean, fresh and done just in my own style.

Now onto the links I found for you this week.

Decorating

I would love to tour this house in person.

I LOVE every home this architect designs and have shared a few with you before.

I do this every morning, now I have a name for it. It feels great.

    Diane– Thank you for sharing what you are finding online. I like that you always balance the topics — dreamy stuff like the mostly white house on the water, the English tree house, the home in Edgartown, with practical tips like using Amazon Outlet (I ordered a pair of shoes today) and movie recommendation (I watched The Idea of You last night and LOVED it because it doesn’t follow the usual rom-com formula). Have a great week. Won’t it be wonderful when you have your twin close by?!

      Hi Barbara – Sorry for the delay in responding to you. Yes I am very excited for my sister to live close by. I still can’t believe she and her family are making it happen. Thanks for the move recommendation as I have been having a hard time trying to find good ones to watch. I think now that I have my bathroom makeover done, I can relax and will watch The Idea of You tonight. :-)

  2. Thank you so much for answering questions regarding WFPB in your last post. Hope your spring is going well. I look forward to more great posts.

      You are welcome Nancy. I hope life is going OK for you too. Spring seems to have turned into summer around my neck of the woods. :-)

  3. Diane,
    So many great links! Loved them all. ? Does that Raspberry polish leave a light pink tint to your nails?

    1. Diane Henkler says:

      Hi June – The Raspberry polish is buildable. One coat is pretty clear with a tint of pink. When you add a second coat the pink color becomes darker, but still transparent. A third coat adds a more opaque pink color.
