I'm having the craziest, busiest week, you guys. In fact, as you read this, I'm halfway across the country for work. So please accept this photo of two DRASTICALLY DIFFERENT white trim paints as today's post. Seriously, though. We're trying to decide between the two of them: Ice Mist (above) and Snow White (below). Both by Benjamin Moore. What are your thoughts?
When we were at Home Sense picking up the pillows I shared last week, I also stumbled onto this little striped table runner. I thought the stripes were so classic and the colours perfectly suited our Nate Berkus arrowhead rug.

LINKS TO LOVE:
I am OBSESSED with Ash's blog Sugar & Cloth, which I only just discovered. Check it out. Seriously.
I hate lamp cords. Well, cords in general. Very tempted to follow Dana's lead.
And I may have bought this stunning white coat after spotting it on Krystin earlier this week...
I've been on the hunt for a few more pillows to add to our living room and last weekend, I caught myself a few metallic beauties:
I thought I wanted navy pillows but when I spotted these gold ones at HomeSense, I couldn't resist. I think they pull out the light accent in the rug quite nicely and keep the space from getting too dark.
I also love the way they contrast with the dark couch and striped pillows. I think they liven up the room a bit.
What do you think?
When we picked up our new desk, it looked a little something like this:
To be honest, I'm not sure what that was. At first, I thought it was dust. Then, I thought someone had splattered it with paint. Whatever it was, it was unsightly. But I loved the rest of the desk and figured we could refinish the top down the line, if we needed to. When we got it home and all set up, the boyfriend suggested we try to scrub it with some Murphy Oil Soap...
...which is my new favourite cleaner EVER because all of those marks DISAPPEARED!
All it took was some Murphy's, a nonabrasive scrubby sponge, and a little elbow grease. I'm not saying that it will work for everyone but I couldn't keep this trick to myself! Murphy, my new best friend.
P.S. Sorry for the wonky nighttime lighting. I needed a shot of the top of the desk and couldn't possibly wait until morning to set it up. You understand.
