Laura Day Living


I first came across the exuberant and whimsical designs 
of Laura Day in issue "four"of Lonny Magazine.


It was this image in particular that 
really captured my imagination.

I love the idea of using bulletin boards in children's rooms. 

Laura Day listed her resource for this idea (Ballard Design)
and mentioned that she simply painted the frame herself.
Now, with resources and inspiration at hand
it's just a matter of time before I try this fun project 
in my daughter's room.

Curious, as to what other gems I could mine from this
talented lady, I went searching on the web for more.

That's when I hit the mother load of inspiration...





Laura Day has a really great website!

Not only is Laura Day's beautiful portfolio
on her site, but she has this amazing
"bi-monthly webazine that brings insider
tips home...one room at a time"!




It's like she read my mind!

Seriously...go check it out, you will love it!

  2. Yet another design resource I didn't know about - love Laura's aesthetic and all the fun textures and colors. Don't the walls in the third image from the bottom remind you of a quilted Chanel bag? Hope you had a great weekend!
