ten images of inspiration : summertime weddings.

It may very easily be the girl in me, but I can sometimes be such a sucker for a good wedding. Since I truly love outdoor gatherings, my favorites of the weddings I have seen tend to occur under the sun in the summertime. Cold fruity drinks, bunting, sundresses, paper fans, and beer are all a plus.

"Skies," a digital print based on a D.H. Lawrence quotation, created by Scotland's Lizzy Stewart. ($33.65)

interior inspiration : päivää finland!

This week I seem to be going through another one of my strong Scandinavia obsessions. I can't stop thinking about bold contrasts, color pops, modern furnishings, and little bit of quirkiness, all frequently seen in Scandinavian interiors. These homes in Finland are tickling my fancy right now.

a new zealand home.

Oh yes, I am truly loving this new Selby tour of the home of Auckland artists/directors Karen Inderbitzen-Walller and Delphine Avril Planqueel. So much personality, great design, and the good kind of clutter. (See also: Karen's blog)
