We’ve got one last color-themed holiday gift guide this week, and I had to save the best for last: pink! I wouldn’t mind wheeling around on that hot pink cruiser or donning those striped bow gloves! And is there any better gift for a blogger than a hot pink external iPhone battery? I think not!
This holiday gift guide is all about little luxuries in a crisp winter white. Don’t you just want to cozy up in that chunky anchor scarf and light one of those lovely diptyque candles?
Up next in the holiday gift guide color wheel is green — these gift may be my personal favorites since a bright kelly green is one of the main colors for our upcoming spring wedding! What’s your favorite green gift?
Have you started your holiday shopping? I’m kicking off a series of gift guides today organized in my very favorite way: by color! First up, a little bit of sparkle with gifts as good as gold.
Here’s my question: would it be unreasonable to buy a lobster door knocker and store it away in my closet until I someday hypothetically own my very own front door? I think my supportive blog readers will agree that no, that is in no way unreasonable (and that’s why I keep you guys around, to justify buying lobster door knockers).

Thom Filicia’s lake house tour might be my all time favorite spread from Domino Magazine — I tore out and saved those images long before ‘pinning’ them was an option. So I let out a gasp when I saw House Beautiful published updated photos of the space in this month’s issue to promote his new book, American Beauty, written about renovating the home. The book is certainly getting pre-ordered, and these pictures added to the inspiration file!

This print pretty much sums up my personal mantra, I think it deserves a place in my kitchen. And they styling in this little scene? Spot on. I love the idea of using an old dresser as a bar — think of all the storage for linens and other party goods! Plus corralling the barware in an oversized basket keeps things neat and tidy, don’t you think?
I have just started tackling some research for building out our registry. My fiancé and I already live together — in fact we’ve lived in 3 different apartments over the past few years and have accumulated lots of kitchen items — but most of those things are hand-me-downs, and college-era relics. I’m talking all about my plans for building a registry of kitchen ‘upgrades’ over on Wayfair’s My Way Home blog today — head over and join the conversation!
It was a delightfully quiet weekend — I parked myself on the couch for a full day on Saturday with a full DVR, some fashion magazines, and a good book that I read cover to cover (Seating Arrangements by Maggie Shipstead — I recommend it!). Sometimes you just need a weekend of nothing to do to get recharged, right?
