June 2015 iPhone + Desktop Wallpapers {Citrus}


I hope y'all had great Memorial Day Weekends! We had a blast at my parents' river house doing a whole lot of hammock sitting', boat adventuring, napping, etc. :). So much for all those projects I had planned to take on! There are some times when you've gotta get things done and other times where it's worth it to make yourself do very little. I think my husband and I both needed the down time and this long weekend gave us the exactly what we needed. What did y'all do?

Today I've got a fun, free download for you - June's iPhone and desktop wallpapers! I had a great time putting these citrus-themed wallpapers together. I figured since June is the real start of summer that something like this would be a nice way to celebrate a new season.

You can download both a blank wallpaper and a wallpaper with a calendar (which I find to be super handy!) for your gadgets. Each version comes in two colors: orange and turquoise. Download one or all of them! Enjoy!

Use the links below each photo to download the version you'd like...

Lovely Links

Happy weekend, y'all! I can't tell you how excited I am that it's Memorial Day weekend - yahoo for Monday off! The weather is supposed to be beautiful down here at the river house, so I plan to take advantage of it and spend most of my time outside. I've got a few projects in mind...we'll see how many of those get done :).

Before you run off to wherever you're headed for the long weekend, here are a few good finds from around the web for your reading pleasure...

*As always, please pin from the original source. Thanks!

1 | I can SO relate to Emily Henderson in her post about "12 Annoying Things I Ignore Every Day" in her house. I love her transparency - even though she's an incredible designer, her house still has those little annoyances we all have in our own homes.

{Emily Henderson}
2 | These little air-dry clay place card holders are the cutest!

{Julep}
3 | I want to try this method for making super-easy ice cream sandwiches.

4 | I came across this new line of beautifully hand-lettered empathy cards by Emily McDowell Studio and love their cheeky sincerity. Traditional empathy cards aren't really my style, but these? Yes.

{Emily McDowell Studio}
5 | Ok, I'm totally digging this tiny apartment's ability to transform into five different spaces. They architects and designers did an incredible job maximizing space and customizing pieces to make it both efficient and beautiful.

{Houzz}
6 | If you're in the market for a little housewarming, birthday, whatever gift, I'm officially obsessed with this Voluspa candle (*affiliate link). I'm on my second one and I want to burn it all day e'ry day.

{Spotted} Repurposed Vintage Flat File Cabinets


Boy did I score at a yard sale this past weekend! I bought a huge vintage ten drawer flat file cabinet for a steal.  It was quite the serendipitous find because I had no plans to go yard sale hunting, but after an appointment got canceled at the last minute, my husband and I decided to run an errand that took us to a different part of town...and there it was. I'm excited to get my DIY hands on it. I haven't had a chance to photograph it in its current state yet, but photos will come soon! It's black metal and has some wear and tear and rust that I'll have to deal with - painting may be in order! It'll likely make its debut on Instagram first, so if you want to catch a glimpse, follow me @mayricherfullerbe.

Meanwhile, as I've been brainstorming about my flat file cabinet's future purpose/life, I scoured the interwebs for some ideas and found some pretty cool ones that I thought y'all might enjoy.

Coffee table:

{REHAB Vintage}
{Design Sponge}
Craft storage:

{Apartment Therapy}
{Design Sponge}
Jewelry storage:

{Design Sigh}
Even as a bed frame!

{Emma's Design Blogg}

The original purposes for this style of flat file cabinet were typically blueprint, art and map storage, but as you can see from the examples above, the possibilities are pretty extensive! Several companies are manufacturing these for craft storage including Martha Stewart and the Home Depot.

What would you use one of these big ole flat file storage pieces for?

Wallpaper Done WELL


Wallpaper is BACK in a big way, my friends. Have you noticed it popping up in design mags and all over Pinterest? I'll admit it took me awhile to warm up to the idea...I am a child of the 80s and 90s after all, and there was a lot of awful, terrible wallpaper happening during those years. Bad wallpaper designs are certainly still out there, but with this explosion of popularity in the past couple of years, there are some truly stunning ones that deserve some attention. Personally, I'll have to wait until we're homeowners to add something permanent like this to the walls (or ceilings!), but I'm loving looking at some beautiful examples of rooms where wallpaper has been done well. One day I'll be able to take the plunge! Wallpaper is not always the appropriate choice, but in certain circumstances it can add the perfect amount of uniqueness and beauty to a space.

I've got three favorite places to use wallpaper to share with you, plus a few great sources of pretty wallpaper at the end if you're in the market yourself, or just want to take notes for the future!

*Please pin from the original source!

Example 1: Powder Rooms

Powder rooms are one of my favorite places to go bold. It seems counterintuitive to put lots of pattern in such a small space, but it has a huge impact and is a great way to make a statement if you're not terribly comfortable committing to wallpapering a larger space.

{Domaine Home}

{Lilly Bunn Interiors}
{The Lettered Cottage}

Example 2: Ceilings

Not quite ready to commit to the walls? How about ceilings? Drawing the eye up to the ceiling and making it the focal point is a fun, often unexpected way to turn that "fifth wall" into something awesome. It can work in so many rooms.

{My Design Dump}

{Home Adore}

{At Home Arkansas}

Example 3: Accent Walls

Accent walls have gotten a bad rap over the past few years and I do think that there was a period  when some designers/home owners thought every. room. had to have one and it was overdone, but as I said in the intro to this post, there are definitely situations where wallpaper can highlight a part of a room perfectly. It can serve as a way to draw your eye to the area where you want people to focus.

Laundry rooms are a perfect example:

{Young House Love}

{View Along The Way}

And how about closets? No one may see the inside of this space except you, see what a difference it can make?

{View Along The Way}
{Glamour}
And finally, an entryway can be a great place to add a focal wall - especially if yours isn't well-defined on its own.

{BHG}
{House Beautiful}

As I've been exploring and oogling over all these gorgeously wallpapered rooms, I've come across a few sources for it over and over again - these sites will be my first stops if I ever decide to wallpaper a space!


So where do you stand on the idea of using wallpaper? Yay, nay? Thoughts?
