A Parisian Apartment

Today, I'd like to be far far away. Paris would do just fine...

Make An Entrance!

I find I'm consistently drawn to bright and open entryways. Lots of transoms never seem to hurt! Natural light always makes a good first impression.

Faves: Russell + Hazel

Who knew getting organized could look so good or be so colorful?!
My longtime favorite Russell + Hazel never fails to disappoint with their preppy line of office products and accessories.
I'll take one of everything in each color, please...

Balboa Island Beach Cottage

This quirky and colorful cottage looks like the perfect place to prop up one’s feet and enjoy an old movie or a great book on a hot summer afternoon. The bright palette breaks up the crisp white and the bold and funky patterns engage your eyes. Southern California based interior designer Krista Ewart has a knack for the whimsical while deftly avoiding cutesy. Love it!

Thanks to Liz over at Shorely Chic for the better pic heads up! ;)

Storage with Stripes

I came across this irresistibly vibrant and retro Margate chest by Zoe Murphy while leafing through the pages of the July issue of Living Etc. Funky, hip, and fun!

Enjoy more of Zoe Murphy’s work here.

The Book Cover Archive

I find I can get lost for hours in a bookstore and have realized, as a designer, I find I'm mostly interested in all the beautiful covers...more so than the books themselves! If this is you too you need to click on over to The Book Cover Archive. Their catalogue of covers is both eye-popping and delicious!

Colorful Characters: Jenna Lyons

This woman is a serious source of inspiration! As the creative genius behind the new shimmery take on the American classic, J. Crew, her style is flawless and I can’t get enough. Her lovely New York brownstone has also been featured in several magazines and is an eclectic blend of layers and textures, mirroring her signature fashion trademark!

See her work at jcrew.com.

Cotton Construction

I'm loving the handprinted cotton linen over at Hable Construction. Seriously cheerful! I hope to visit their New York shop one day...(while enjoying a cupcake from Magnolia Bakery, of course)!

Check out more of their punchy patterns at hableconstruction.com.

Airy Industrial

Check out Meg Ryan's beautiful Martha's Vineyard home. So peaceful and serene, old yet new. Really quite lovely.
