Interior of the Week

I love the sophistication of this sleek European flat.  The blue-grey palette is an ode to the dreary weather we've been having this spring.

Also, I have to postpone opening the Etsy shop until Wednesday because my sister moved this weekend and I didn't have time to finish taking photos.  Sorry for the delay.

P.S. Happy Birthday to my dear cousin,  Angie!!!


Shop Preview

Well, my surprise for Monday is that I'm set to open my Etsy shop, but I thought I would give you a little preview of my mini-collection.  I'm so excited that this project is finally coming together!


No. 6

Even though clogs are supposedly in style again, it seems as though it costs $245 to find a pair that works.  Life just isn't fair sometimes...



I've been feeling a little unmotivated lately, but I've got a big surprise for Monday...


Dace - Spring 2011

Dace's new spring collection is gorgeous and the styling is impeccable.

Interior of the Week

I think this dining space is darling; I love round tables and the window treatments are perfection. 


Clever Nettle + House of Leaves

This photo shoot from Clever Nettle makes the outdoors look so deceivingly appealing.


Project Alabama

Project Alabama's Spring/Summer 2011 collection is like a breath of fresh air.


Abbey Road

For Beatles fans:

There is this ridiculously cool website that has a live camera on Abbey Road to watch all the tourists try to recreate The Beatles famous Abbey Road crossing.  If you catch it at the right hour, it can be crazy funny, (also that intersection is way busier than I ever anticipated.)



Interior of the Week

Joanna of Cup of Jo share pictures of Victoria's house from the blog SFGirlByBay because she's house swapping with her for a week.  Victoria's house is filled with eclectic and fantastic pieces but still retains a certain minimalism and crispness.  It was even featured in Rue Magazine.


Friday Pins

Can you tell what I've been craving?


Shopbop Lookbooks

I love to peruse Shopbops Lookbooks: they have beautiful photography, insanely expensive
(but gorgeous) clothes, and are definitely inspiring.


Digby & Iona

This necklace I spotted in Lucky is too cute; it's actually a functioning telescope!


Interior of the Week

I love the soft palettes and uncluttered styling of Papa Stour created by Scottish designer and stylist Rosie Brown.


Friday Pins

I hope everyone has a great weekend and a happy Mother's Day!
