freebie of the day : notebook labels.

I apologize, but I just cannot stop posting these wonderful freebies from the folks at Martha Stewart Online. Aren't the illustrations on these Notebook Labels absolutely adorable? Plus, the second page of the download features very sweet bookplates. It's true- I'm smitten, as always.

"Memory full" by Ayoumali.

feeling swept away by...

the artwork of Finnish painter/illustrator Anna Emilia Laitinen. I just love the muted coloring and overall softness.

thought of the day : fleeting.

"all is fleeting," from Katie Madeline's Art Set. (Via Design For Mankind)


ten images of inspiration : still life with...

I always love the peacefulness of still life photography, along with the fact that so many photographers have such different perspectives.

tonight i am inspired by...

this home tour of one of my favorite Portland artists/photographers, Stephanie Congdon Barnes. I have admired her simple and unique sense of style for quite some time, so it was nice to get another peek into her space, which seems to be filled with so many treasures. (click here to see her previous house tour for Cookie.)

chloe aftel : fashion polaroids.

I am really liking these fashion polaroids from California photographer Chloe Aftel. Her portfolio is full of beautiful eye candy.

thought of the day : nyc.

"New York's the Greatest..." from Orignaux Moose's shop. ($30)

interior inspiration : color me red.

Red just happens to be one of those colors that seems to continuously pop into my home (and wardrobe). I am rather obsessed with it, especially when mixed with neutrals.

great package design : vino.

My good friend Steve, a deep wine lover, never shows up to my home empty-handed. Last night he brought over a bottle of Boom Boom and while I really know nothing about wine tasting, I fell in love with the bottle's simple design. I don't know if it's the tall, rounded shape of a bottle that is great to work with, but I very frequently notice fabulously packaged alcoholic beverages. In all truth, I would buy any one of these wines just to display the bottle around our home.
