What Happens When a Design Student Has Too Much Free Time?

They spend it doing bad things to their wallet! It seems like every time I have a semester that does not offer me any interior design classes, which seems to be too frequent lately, I spend all of my pent up design energy on my own home. It is so much cheaper for me to make design boards for pretend homes!

Anyway, I have been looking for a piece of furniture to put in my entry and I finally found it at Pier 1:

I thought this was a fun addition that would be a more unique look. Unfortunately they were out of stock so I will have to wait a couple of weeks to bring it home.

I also picked up a lantern, new throw pillows, a really cute fuchsia glass "rubber" duckie for the bathroom and this:

I will never buy shredded cheese again! I will only purchase it in block form so that I can use this fun mouse cheese grater.

Now I am dreaming of the Orla Kiely line of bedding and I really think this would be perfection in my guestroom.

I have also talked Gabe into helping me paint the wall behind our bed in the master bedroom yellow. I need to go back to work tomorrow before I start knocking down walls! ;)

that table is soooo cool! I love it! I would have never guessed it was from Pier 1!
Oh, and I die when I see Orla Kiely bedding. It's gorgous!!!
