interior inspiration : eames furniture.














You can't deny it- Charles & Ray Eames knew how to design a beautiful piece of furniture. I never tire of seeing their simple, modern designs inside of people's homes.

currently loving : cc jewelry.



I know I have visited Candystore Collective many times, but I don't think I have ever noticed just how lovely their jewelry collection is. Every piece (created by a variety of designers) is just so unique and breathtaking. View the whole collection here.

collections : office space.

I am almost embarrassed about my deep love of office supplies. As long as I can remember, I have gotten excited upon walking into an office supply or stationery store, loving the smell of fresh paper, pencils, rubber stamps, and markers. I cannot really explain it, but it is just this odd sort of love that I have had since I was a child. Nowadays, I try to avoid major office chains and don't get nearly excited inside them as I used to, but I still really enjoy beautiful, quirky, and well-designed writing supplies and desktop accessories.

So yes, here are a ton of them that I have had my eye on. Perhaps someday I will have my own home office that I can fill.

nice package.




I was so happy to catch up on my Google Reader today and see that Ez just started a brand new Etsy shop called Nice Package. It's a shop completely dedicated to putting together creative packages- such a nice idea.

ten images of inspiration : farm life.

Good Monday morning/afternoon everyone! We're experiencing our second day of gorgeous weather here in Portland and do you know what I'm thinking about? Being on a farm somewhere here in the northwest. As much as I adore the city and feel like I need to be near it, I am also such a country girl at heart. Today would just be one of those perfect days that I would love to be setting a pie out on the windowsill, picking veggies, and falling asleep on the grass in the middle of nowhere. Instead, though, I will just look at these stunning photographs and daydream.

happy birthday...






to my very dear friend, the overly talented Abby Powell-Thompson, who turned 27 today. Because it's her birthday and because she's fabulous, everything in her shop today is 27 percent off (just enter "birthday" at checkout.) Go purchase something and wish her a wonderful day!

interior inspiration : bright whites.

I am sure if you've been reading this site for any period of time, you know that I am a girl who really loves color, however, I do frequently find all-white interiors to be very beautiful. Every once in awhile I need a little bit of clean simplicity, at least just to look at.
