I’m a little slow in recovering from my Savannah trip over the holiday weekend because I’m worn out from all of the fun packed into 3 short days! I made the most out of the girls weekend and soaked up the sights (and soaked up much of the local food as well). The highlights of the trip for me were seeing all of the character that the buildings in Savannah have, it’s like stepping back in time. I also got to take a peek in SCAD’s fashion building with my fabulous hostess. And I did some extensive window shopping; I fell in love with the shabby chic pieces in The Paris Market. It was a vacation well worth my slow recovery time, I can’t wait to go back!

 

 

It looks like the storm has officially passed, I survived on a big stack of magazines, an at home mani-pedi, and a few old movies. As much as the rain and wind slamming against the windows gave me a scare, it was definitely a nice change of pace to lounge around at home all weekend. How did you weather out the storm?

This weekend I had the pleasure of attending a book signing  for Holly Becker’s new book Decorate at the Boston Anthropologie store. It felt like meeting a celebrity when I approached Holly at the event; I had taken her blog class when I first started this site so she was a big influence in my early days of blogging.  And my admiration for Holly has only grown after reading this book — it is packed with gorgeous interiors and great design advice.

After the book signing the fun continued when I attended a luncheon with bloggers from around Boston that gathered for the book event. I had a blast talking to all of the amazing bloggers and artists and designers in attendance.

After my spark of inspiration yesterday I got to shopping and sourcing some new ways to bring a brighter color palette into the living room. I still want to work around the bigger items in the room, like my upholstered chair in a graphic mustard print, and the gray walls and Cb2 pouf I recently bought. So I decided to mix in some pinks and reds and a litttle bit of blue — fabrics have been ordered and I’m ready for a mini-makeover!

Do you ever have that moment when you suddenly decide you’re “over” a space in your home? I had that moment earlier this week when I decided that the living room is in need of an update. My long-lived obsession with citron and grey came to a grinding halt and I’m dying for some new colors in the space. I combed through my inspiration folder and plucked out an image from Eddie Ross that featured a bright and rich Quadrille Ikat print — and now my wheels are turning for how I can incorporate it in the room.  I’ll be sure to share my inspiration board once it’s all pulled together!

Don’t you love it when you have one of those AHA! moments for a DIY project? I have been majorly crushing on the Kate Spade Bixby clutch, and crossing my fingers for a miracle sale so I can make it mine. But it turns out, I may have found a way to actually make it mine. I found a similar style clutch at Nordstrom’s that is just begging for a little hot glue, paint, and a few wooden beads, don’t you think?

Add this to your to-do list today: stop by Society Social, and read through their newly published magalog. What’s a magalog you ask? One part catalog introducing Society Social‘s stunning line of bar carts and furniture that launches next week; and one part stylish online entertaining magazine (with a tip on throwing a fabulous soirée from yours truly on pg 63).  I promise you’ll be inspired and will likely want to pour a cocktail concoction from your own fabulous bar cart after reading!

Earlier in the week I posted about the crisp bright vermilion hued-trend in Fall fashion displays this year, and it made me think about all of the ways I’ve seen the color used in design. Much like pairing the color with classics like blue jeans and camel coats, I think the same practice applies in interiors — it looks best paired with crisp white details and simple design.

Deborah Lloyd’s wardrobe was featured on The Coveteur last week, and sure I was excited about the shoes — but really I was honing in on the interior design behind the shoes.  I of course adored the gallery wall in her home too, especially the paper ephemera tacked on top of the frames with neon pink washi tape. And you know you’re fabulous when you have a giant stuffed white peacock in your living room — I want to move in!

J.Crew is calling it Flaming Red, others might call it vermilion, but I think the only thing you need to call it is the “it” color for Fall. Walking past storefronts this weekend I saw it in every display popping next to camel coats, boyfriend jeans, and leopard print accessories — I love how crisp and bright it looks in every variation.
