SGD Favorite Five-First Edition

In searching for our first favorite five listing, I kept dreaming about my own personal renovation goals: kitchen and bathrooms (of course) Both of these rooms can point us to our first favorite:

  1. TILE If you haven’t already noticed, the tile game has really stepped up! Whether you are going for a classic subway, hexagon, or a patterned cement (to name a few), the materials and combinations are endless. It really lends the opportunity to express some personal flair in a fun new way! Here is a sneak peek at the use of tile in a current Sara Godfrey Design Renovation:

Here are some others to look out for:

  2. When looking to style your home, there are some simple ways to add your personality with minimal holes in your wall. We are currently loving picture ledges. This versatile wall decor can help you fill a large space, and allow for ever-changing seasonal and personal decor pieces.

I love the use of multiple items on this ledge. If you’re feeling extra creative, follow the link to the tutorial on how to build this ledge! The Merry Thought-DIY Picture Ledge

3. There is so much beauty in the changing of seasons whether anticipating that first leaf to fall, snowflake to drop, or bud to blossom. But, can we all agree that these changes can bring some undesired skin changes as well! This week’s favorite beauty product comes from the local company Raw. Products. Their Heal balm has become a necessity in my household! It is such a versatile product and safe for kids as well! I continue to be amazed at its truly HEAL-ing power. This is really a company to watch for and I can’t wait to try more of their skincare!

4. It is so amusing to watch fashion trends cycle in and out, and currently, the thing that I’m not sad about returning is backpacks! And thank goodness they came back with style. I love a good handbag but there are those days where the convenience and comfort of a backpack cannot be beat!

You can find this clean line design on Etsy. Black Leather Backpack


And every woman’s favorite store also has some great options. Here are two classic looks.

5. The last thing I can’t get enough of this week (and past month) is breathing in that fresh air! And why not just make your outdoor spaces stylish as well! Here are some dreamy backyard spaces to inspire you.

This Chris Loves Julia Blogging couple has to be one of my favorites. Follow along with them as they are finishing up a master bath renovation. Chris Loves Julia
