This old home reinvented and designed by RJ Thornburg is something that caught my eye. I love the fresh feeling you get and how different a feel it is from the exterior.
Love the pop of pink!
The black and white cowhide rug really makes the space and is one of the elements that makes it attractive to my eye.
How different and funky are these light fixtures above the dining room table? I also love that piece of artwork and the bamboo
Hope everyone is having a fantastic Tuesday!

The white feather tree in the corner of the desk reminds me of the one my grandma and I found at Pier 1 Imports around the holidays a few years ago. What a great way to re-invent it! It totally works with the inspiration boards also, not making the workspace too serious-- keeping it light and airy.
Totally diggin' the use of the ornate mirrors against the wood!

I can totally see myself cuddling up on the couch and relaxing...heck...I would never leave this place if it were mine! There is something so welcoming and relaxing about this space. Although, the story read that it belongs to a couple in Barcelona and although I simply adore it, I'm not sure that any man would be able to handle so much PINK ;).
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend, I am staying home and relaxing! Hopefully it will allow me some time to get some projects done around my condo. xoxo

I went to the doctor today and she wrote me three scripts for an ear infection and a bacterial infection so I am just trying to get rested and hopefully feel good as new by Monday. I wanted to show some things that pick me up and give me happy thoughts when I am not feeling well. Hope you all had a great Thursday. Tomorrow is the weekend!
My go to home remedy of chicken noodle soup, green tea, and surfing the web :)
I told you that I would show you the finished product of my dresser with the new antler I got in Maine. The best part was the price! You can't beat their $10 price tag. Decorative antlers similar to this in a store cost you a pretty penny and I'm glad I didn't cave and buy one from a retail store.
My post from yesterday was featuring my perfume roundup and some of my favorite fragrances. Here is how I have them displayed on my bathroom counter. I found two cake plates at TJ Maxx about a year ago and thought it was the perfect girly touch for my collection.

Although I did have a few hiccups and delays on the flight home (reasoning behind my lack of posting yesterday) we made it home safe and sound.
I picked up the latest copy of House Beautiful during one of my many trips to and from the Philadelphia airport and fell in love with the room on the cover from the house designed by Barry Dixon. The pink, brown and gray hues totally captured my eye and helped me get through the long tedious hours of flight delays.

Tomorrow I will be setting off for a week long vacation in beautiful Maine. I am so excited to get a chance to visit somewhere I've never been - I have heard so many great things and most importantly to get a nice long week of rest and relaxation. I am accompanying my boyfriend on his family's annual trip to Belgrade Lakes, Maine and I can't wait to enjoy the nice weather and spend quality time with his family! Hopefully I will get the chance to share little snippets while I am there and keep everyone updated.

I am beyond jealous of Katie Simone Nehra's ridiculous closet couture. I came across Elle's feature of the actress, writer, designer's unbelievable collection and I think it is safe to say I am swooning over every styled photograph. Some of her pieces are truly unique yet managed to stay classic over the years. Take a look for yourself... I'm ready to have some fellow jealous friends :)
I DIE over this denim Birkin!! What a fantastic twist to a classic bag.
This fur coat is vintage with gunmetal sequins. I love how the photograph was styled along the colorful bookshelf.
Okay, seriously with this Chanel leather jacket? AND a Vivienne Westwood rug!! IN LOVE.
You know your life is complete when you are the owner of not one, but TWO Birkins.
Sweet and sophisticated Chloe blouse - love the color too!
How funky are these YSL Mohawk heels?
I could look through pictures like these all day long and just dream about what I wish I had. I especially love how Elle incorporated small snapshots of her home and interior decor in each shot alongside her amazing collection. I hope everyone has a great Thursday tomorrow!
