Style Scouting: Vol. 80

The weeks are flying by – It is hard to believe that this week marks my 80th Style Scouting post. When I first began writing these posts, I called them Friday Favorites.

Then I changed the posting day to Sunday, so I needed to come up with a new name. After a lot of thought, Style Scouting made perfect sense as it is exactly what I enjoy doing…

…finding interesting ideas, inspiration and projects that are doable as well as lifestyle ideas that I can share with you every week.

Posts You May Have Missed This Week:


I like this designer’s portfolio. Simple, clean lines – yet not too modern.

I also like the casual vibe of this home.

The movies to watch before decorating your home. I know movies inspire me. I painted my dining room in tone-on-tone persimmon colored stripes after watching the movie, It Takes Two back in the 90’s as well as painting all the rooms white in my house the very next day after seeing Something’s Gotta Give.

DIY & Crafts

Love this dollar store find hack.

This is so cute to make for your garden or porch.

I am thinking of adding this feature to my kitchen.

I like this simple craft idea – it teaches kids or grandkids a skill, as well as gives them something they can use on a daily basis.

Home Improvement

The pros and cons of using a paint sprayer.

A spring project that will add curb appeal to your home.


I think these are the cutest cookies I have ever seen. Perfect for a spring gathering.

I know Ed will like these!

Another reason to love a pressure cooker or Instant Pot.

Yum, yum, yum!

Something to Think About

The surprising benefits of slowing down.

      Hi Nancy – Sorry about the broken link. It is to the Houzz site which I normally do not link to as it always causes problems. If you can’t open this link: then you would have to sign up to the site to see their posts. I won’t link via them anymore. I hope you have an enjoyable Sunday.
