Wanderlust 03: Paris | 4.16.14

There are few things I love more in this world than traveling. The sights, the culture, the adventure of it all. It’s thrilling and exhausting and satisfying. But when there is neither time nor money for the biggest dreamed adventures, there’s wanderlust.

03. Paris [in Springtime]

There’s no place in the world I’d rather see and no time of year I’d rather see it. I dream about it all year round, but most of all in the spring. In lieu of seeing it in person, I take inspiration from the sunlight-filtered colors of Spring and the vibrant storefront shades.

Monday Mood: So Fresh & So Clean | 3.24.14

It’s Spring (or so they tell me)! The color palette of the season is undoubtedly pastel, but can it be anything more than what we dye our Easter Eggs?

Oh. Yes.

So Fresh & So Clean | Pastel Tumblers | Linzeelu Thank You

 

Pastels are light & airy.

Wishing you a great week,

2014 Oscar’s Laundry: The Brights & The Darks | 3.6.14

Let’s be honest, sometimes we have a smaller load than normal and we mix a couple the darks and the brights. Welcome to today’s post. We are wrapping up our 2014 Oscar’s Review with a mixture of the brights & the darks!

My main girl Sandy wowed in Navy. It’s a versatile shade of blue. If you want to keep it off your walls, throw a spotlight on the deep hue with a sturdy sofa.

J.Law is my spirit animal. And this year at the Academy Awards, she continued her tradition of tripping and looking spectacular. Red is a bold statement. Add a little bit into a space to see if you like the color (as opposed to say, painting the whole room). Sometimes a little bit goes a lot farther.

Olivia Wilde is talented, gorgeous and she makes such a pretty preggo. I love her choice of black and white. It is elegant, simple and sophisticated. Translate this look in to your home by balancing the black & white with warm wood tones in caramel & mahogany,

I’ll be honest, I wasn’t that much of a fan of this dress when I first saw it on TV. And it’s not that much of a stunner in photos. But when Annie walked out on stage, you really got the full effect. This dress is something special and deceptively gorgeous. Punch up a dark spot in your home with some sparkle!

Mad For Metallics: 01 | 10.30.13

Metallics – gold, silver, bronze, copper – are some of my favorite neutrals. And just as important as the old standbys – black, white, beige, gray. That’s right, metallics are neutrals. And such shiny, beautiful ones too!

9 Million Reasons Why I Love Wallpaper | 10.24.13

Ok so maybe not 9 million. More like 9 gorgeous examples of wallpaper killing it. This is not your grandmother’s wallpaper. Or your mother’s. I’m talking about wallpaper that has modern colors & patterns, is paintable and easily removable (think: like a sticker). I’m hoping I change some minds with this post…
