Good afternoon! I hope you all had a very lovely winter weekend. I am starting the week off with photographs/artwork featuring my favorite color combination: red & black. It's very much a classic duo, one I don't think I will ever get sick of seeing...

interior inspiration : cutesy retro.

This has always been one of my favorite interior styles- lots of pretty vintage items, a bit of fifties and sixties kitsch, candy-like colors, and cute feminine touches. It's definitely a look I usually go for in my home.

and i'm back.

From Alt Design Summit, that is. As I mentioned, it was a truly marvelous experience, and I cannot wait until next year. The above photograph is from the oh-so fabulous Kate Spade suite party, where the lovely Megan of not martha posed with me in Angela + Ithyle's photobooth. So much fun, I tell you.

I hope you all enjoyed the weekend- now onto the week!


ten images of inspiration : the ladies of alt.

I know that it's been a silent week on here. I have been completely consumed with Alt Design Summit, which has proven to be one of the most inspiring events I have attended. All the bloggers, industry folks, and sponsors have been so genuinely kind and knowledgeable. I feel like I have learned quite a lot and have made quite a few new friends. So, to end the week, I'd like to share some original photographs, projects, and creations from ten of this year's speakers. Have a lovely weekend and I'll see you Monday!

alt summit.

Good afternoon, readers! I hope you are all enjoying your 3-day weekend. I just wanted to mention that tomorrow I will be heading off to Alt Design Summit and couldn't be more excited! I will be speaking/moderating a panel on Big Creative Companies & Social Media with some fabulous folks from Martha Stewart and Dwell Studio. I am completely overwhelmed by the amount of design/lifestyle bloggers attending and cannot wait to meet each and every one of them. If you will be attending, let me know- see you there!


thought of the day : freedom.

"Free Your Mind," a simple and beautiful print by the Wheatfield. ($15)

interior inspiration : silhouettes.

Inspired by the bathroom I posted yesterday, I spent a portion of the evening seeking out more homes using silhouettes as wall art. It's no secret that I am rather obsessed with them (enough to have one tattooed on my arm), and now I think it's time to spread the love to a special wall of my home.
