Weekend Reading 7.5.20

By Kate Riley July 5, 2020

Hello my friends, and happy Fourth of July weekend. Ours was very mellow, just a backyard BBQ, not much different than a regular summer night! With spreading virus cases in California, we kept the Fourth low key.

I’m working on some projects around the house. I have to patch some broken tile (nothing to really blog about) and I have an art framing project to share when it’s done! Meanwhile, this week’s favorite links are…

This remodeled Victorian with coastal colors and textures.

Love the shade of blue and wallpaper backdrop on these built ins.

Home upgrades that your neighbors appreciate. :)

An inspiring floor project made of diamond cut wood in three stains!

Soft patterns and tones in this gender neutral nursery.

Wow, what a striking stair mural. So pretty!

This faux grasscloth mirror makeover is impressive.

This DIY concrete coffee table is a nice addition to an outdoor seating area.

100 screen free activities to do with kids.


Enjoy the rest of your weekend!


  1. Hi! Just wondering if you planned to highlight BIPOC businesses or bloggers at all in these, in the future!

      • Great! When do you plan to do that? Are you able to commit to the 15% pledge (15% of the designers/shops/bloggers you highlight are BIPOC)?

  2. Oooooooh I wonder what that wallpaper is? Unfortunately, it is not in their links:(.

  3. Yes, everyone’s lives have been affected during the epidemic. Many outdoor entertainment projects cannot participate. So let’s leave time to those around us! Now, we can invite our good friends to barbecue at home, and we can grill chicken wings, ribs, barbecue, etc., and sing happily together! Although this year is an extraordinary year, we must maintain a good attitude and face difficulties together.
