Happy Halloween Friends! I am traveling for work this week which has already been a bit crazy!

Its always a little bit more of a struggle to wake up on a Monday morning for me. I like to ease into my work week buy taking my time on Monday mornings, drinking a hot cup of coffee and browsing pretty things that inspire me online. I’ve been thinking- instead of just inspiring me to get moving on the work week, I’d like to start sharing my Monday Morning Coffee routine with you too. So, grab your cup of coffee (or tea if that’s your thing.. ) and settle in for my new weekly series “MMC”.

One:navyblushandgoldlivingroombystudiomcgeeStudio McGee has been one to watch for a while. I am constantly oogling their Instagram feed. Shea and Syd are a beautiful couple with two adorable kids and a lot of ambition. They started their own design firm and it has really taken off- for good reason.. I love all of Studio McGee’s designs and find a lot of inspiration from them. They recently launched a new online store which has all kinds of goodies. I just purchased two of their watercolor floral pillows for my living room and absolutely LOVE them. Be sure to check out their site, its so good!

Two:lisa-mendes-traditional-home-show-houseI was flipping though an old copy of Traditional Home Magazine this morning and stumbled upon this beautiful kitchen from the 2015 Junior League of High Point Designer Showhouse. Interior Designer Lisa Mende did this stunning black and white kitchen. That wallpapered ceiling! That oversized hardware! An orchid on a blue and white bowl! Brass accents! There is so much to love in this mix of modern and traditional. Be sure to check out more designs from this fun showhouse too!

Three:37677036_026_bHow cute is this little shelf! It would be darling in a kids bedroom. I really love the little brass details at the bottom of the rope. It is a tad pricy at $108.00 but if you’re feeling crafty I bet you could make a DIY version for way less.

Four:gender-neutral-nursery_plaid_masculine_feminine_modern_graphic_black_white_cream_wood_simple_modern_1500-1024x653I’ve been a big fan of Emily Henderson for a loonnngg time. While her taste is more mid century for me- I respect her as a designer and lets face it, she is funny as hell. I loved watching her show on HGTV (rip) and I read her book Styled from cover to cover. Emily has started a new series on her blog where she is getting down to the nitty-gritty and designing really affordable rooms. Like really affordable. I love this gender neutral nurseryfor under $1,500.00. Thats really good, man! Kudos to Emily!


davidson-tufted-headboard-52030-746Lastly, I just wanted to share this fun Wayfair find with you! I ordered this tufted wingback headboard for our guest bedroom and it just arrived. Look, for $235 bucks I wasn’t expecting much bit boy am I pleasantly surprised! This headboard is so great and had a really pretty nailhead detail on the sides. It is seriously beautiful! Plus it was easy to put together so that is always a win!

Thanks so stopping by and checking out what has been getting me going this morning! Tune in every Monday for my new inspiration series Monday Morning Coffee- Or follow the hashtag #ActuallyAshleyMMC on Instagram
