Weekend Reading

If you’ve gone outside today, you’re well aware that our friend the humidity has returned.  So, I’m starting today with a popsicle and coffee.  Hee hee.  Hope you have a wonderful weekend filled with a/c, popsicles and cold beverages!

This made me smile. I wish it was in New York.

Speaking of the City, living here is like being in incredibly dysfunctional relationship –so screw you, New York!

I love this wall.

The blogosphere went nuts a few weeks ago over these well-designed, clever, temporary tattoos.  And now there are new ones!

How Russians take yearbook photos.

I love these party invitations.

A potty mouth + love of fonts = this

How I wish my mom packed these for my elementary school lunch!

I looooooooove this bedroom moodboard.

Gorgeous clambake.

DIY your next handbag.

Gorgeous inspiration for a relaxed, mid-century modern event.

Biz cards: clever graphic design and a study in mixing fonts.

Nursing Inspiration

    One of my favorite sources of home decor inspiration sometimes stem from children’s rooms.  The nursery of blogger extraordinaire Jordan Ferney expertly mixes patterns, colors and textures along with an ingenious DIY crib solution.  To learn more about how Jordan constructed the crib, as well as all product sourcing details, click here.

Pillow Talk


Celebrity stylist Kate Young’s bedroom is making me crazy.  I need to have a replica of this room in my apartment.  What’s nice about this look is it only takes about 5 items to achieve such dramatic boudoir.  And who doesn’t have a set of white sheets?

Bedroom Eyes


This bedroom in the latest edition of Lonny Magazine is making me crazy.  I love the marriage of muted colors, funky, yet traditional Cole and Sons wallpaper and the juxtaposition of pieces from different eras.  This quiet, sophisticated palette is easily accomplished, and that may be the best thing about it!
