I fell in love with Charleston last year and I am heartbroken over what happened. It makes me so sad for our country, and I think that Jon Stewart said it best… I hope you watch this video if you haven’t already.

It seems a bit silly to share any other links this week, but I wanted to share a few other things that resonated with me.

I’m definitely someone that wants to get rid of things and tries to be very considered with the things I bring into my home – this article was a nice reminder about the art of clutter.

A great reminder to live your life fully.

Hello Friends!

This March marked two years in business and it’s hard to believe how fast time has gone! The business has grown so much since then and I am so thankful for all of your support.

I began this business with the encouragement of my husband and a passion for product. I worked out of our two-bedroom apartment in Brooklyn printing, dyeing and painting 60 pillows. They sold out in just two months. Since then the business has grown, and is now run out of a sunny studio in Sunset Park with one amazing employee and support from an accountant, publicist, and local vendors. We’ve worked with national retailers, top boutiques around the country and showrooms. The line has grown to include fabric and soon wallpaper and I have big plans for where I’d like to take it.

This year I’m now eligible to apply for a grant to grow the business, but I need your help getting the 250 votes to move to the next round. Voting takes very little time and this would make a big impact on my business.

Please vote here!

While we’re on such a personal note I would love to hear from you and what YOU would like to see from us as we continue to grow. Leave a comment below, or on twitter, instagram or facebook.

Thank you!

Rebecca

porchSpace of the Week: Ever since Charleston I’ve been dreaming about having a porch. I’m going back on Monday for the book so this space seemed like appropriate inspiration today.

I can’t believe it’s May. I’m really happy though that the weather is warmer, and that by the end of the month almost everything for my book will be photographed.  It’s been an experience for sure, and at times overwhelming, but I’m also really enjoying the process.  It’s pretty awesome to be working on such a big project and I really can’t wait to share it with you all!  We’ve visited some pretty amazing homes and it’s definitely inspiring me.  Anyways, I’ve been compiling some links for a while now that I wanted to share.  Happy Weekend!

More porch inspiration.

This home.

Love this braid tutorial and this one too from my sister.

My friends at Felt + Fat are running a kickstarter to grow their business. I’m pretty obsessed with their work (especially the marble designs), and it’s a great chance to score some of their beautiful pieces.

Framing tips (and our pillows!)

Loved this career advice.

A floor from Pompeii.

Spring style.

A beach home.

Empathy cards.

canopy bedSpace of the Week: I love this modern bohemian take on the canopy bed.  Looks pretty comfy don’t you think?

It’s been a while since I pulled together some of my favorite links. The book has definitely taken over my life, and I’m having a hard time keeping up with everything to be honest.  Despite all the craziness I am really enjoying the process (other than the scheduling!).  Yesterday I did take a break and got my nails done which felt so nice. It’s the little things! If you want a peek at what I’m working on with the book follow along on instagram or snapchat (rebeccaatwood). Anyways, here’s a bit of link love to end the week:

Favorite books

Denim love

One of our favorite office tools is in the NY Times.

I love having plants in my home, so definitely bookmarking this for when one of them isn’t looking so hot.

I love this garden with the cacti in gilded pots.

I’m a fan of pink bathrooms too – what about you?

Loved this interview about makeup with one of my favorite bloggers.

For all of you with upstairs neighbors.

This month I’m also the guest editor at Clementine Daily, and to kick off there’s a little interview up.
