This week’s inspiration is from cocolapinedesign.   As we kick off the first days of summer…who hasn’t gotten the urge to change up our interior a bit?  Ever come back from a vacation rental and longed for the sloppy-chic idea of a slipcover?  Not a slipcover kind of gal?  Not to worry…let’s look at ways to update our homes for summer decor!

LBD Newsletter-Coming Soon!


Bloggers love our readers!  So much so that we always have more info to share that will sometimes fit into our standard blog format.  We also get lots of personal questions behind the scenes.  Like what blogs do we read, what are our hobbies, where do we shop, what catches our eyes?

LBD-VIP Newsletter-laurelbledsoedesign-littleblackdomicile-subscribers

Most blogs have additional newsletters that go out to the VIP readers.  To become a VIP means you have entrusted us with your email address and want to know when new posts come out.  Honestly, the idea of learning a new format was daunting.  However, now that the first newsletter is ready to arrive at your email box, we’ve found it fun and a great way to answer your questions!   We’ll share with all of you what we’ve saved on our Sunday Strolls.

Great Choices For Countertops and Cakes!

More decisions today are made in our kitchens than in any of the board rooms across this country. This is especially true as life becomes more digital.  How many times have you paid bills, planned trips, checked school assignments and synchronized calendars working off your kitchen counter?  We confess much of this blog gets written in this exact way.  Early mornings and very late nights, standing at a countertop, doing last-minute edits or notes for the next great idea we have.  With our kitchens being the command hubs, counters have to take on so many different functions.  Because this is a design blog…we say, darn it, those counters need to look good while doing all this!  So what better way than to make a counter look good than to have a cake on it?!

Mr. LBD will jump in anyone’s suitcase…. at anytime.  He is infamous for agreeing to be part of your travel plans during what I call “polite conversations”.  He is the ultimate traveler and makes every journey the event of a lifetime.  You can’t wait to plan your next travel season with him.   Tough to plan right now.  So how can we stay home and yet travel far?

All designers know it is the universal color that turns good design into great design in an instant.  In fact, it works so well, we often take this beauty for granted.  The same is true about the people we count on every day.  At times it is easy to take people we work with closely for granted.  This is especially true when a team works so well together.  Today we share how Mother Teresa, and the color turquoise, remind us how strong we are together.
