Inspired by: rewatching A Trip to the Moon and various astronomy video clips. I'm rather enamored with all things celestial right now.

interior inspiration : vintage feminine.

Good evening, lovelies! I must first apologize for the couple days of quiet (and no more Autumn Colors week posts.) Family arrived in town and I ended up being a busier bee than I thought I would be. I hope you all enjoyed the weekend as much as I did... Anyways, here are some inspiring interior images of my favorite style- vintage and feminine. In my opinion, it's the most comforting style of them all. Here's to a new week!
