Many of you (especially those in Europe) may be familiar with Paul & Joe, the fresh and feminine collection by French designer Sophie Albou. As an extra bonus for you design lovers, her website is super chic, unique, and just plain gorgeous!


Happy Friday + Inspirations... 23 Feb 2006

Inspired by the most amazing post by Mav on her dream job, I leave you with this image of my other (visual) inspirations for the week....gorgeous muted tones of color against crisp, but slightly somber, white...finely embroidered florals, whimsical headpieces (reminds me of Lisa's cool hair pin for her wedding!), vintage colored glass, and white on white...

Super Cool Book: The Cocktail 23 Feb 2006

What book combines fun cocktail recipes with the most whimsical and amazing illustrations? Why, The Cocktail: 200 Fabulous Drinks by Jane Mocca, of course! I'm not a huge drinker at all, but I would buy this book purely for the illustrations by Kat Macleod...


Another UK store I can now obsess over... 23 Feb 2006

Love the mix of modern prints incorporated into all the home accessories at Sheer Home London. Here are some of my pillow & coffee table picks, as well as my eternal favorite Marimekko pattern, Ruusupuu2, in the form of pillows and wall-hangings at the bottom right.


The BEST part of this month's Elle Decor.... 22 Feb 2006

I'm not an avid reader of Elle Decor (I prefer it's more stylish British counterpart, Elle Decoration)...but after a tip from Romely about an article this month I might find interesting...I took a gander...and she was right...

There's a really interesting and pretty accurate article about the rise of Philadelphia among US cities...it's not the "Sixth Borough of New York" as The New York Times claimed last summer. Here's the intro to the article by Julie V. Iovine.

"If you haven't been to the City of Brotherly Love lately, it's time to recharge your impressions. There's far more to the city than the elementary-school trip with pit stops at the Liberty Bell and Ben Franklin's digs would indicate, or even a pilgrimmage to see the Postimpressionists at the Philadelphia Museum of Art (the country's third largest). The serious history and are all still there, of course, but today Philadelphia is percolating with a more youthful sensibility that's both cosmopolitan and neighborly. It's a welcome paradox: a kind of Madrid on the Delaware river...."

...and a couple of my favorite spots below. This article is GREAT, especially for those considering a move to Philly and want a brief intro. If anyone wants a copy of the whole article and has 4mb of space in your mailbox, email me and I'll send you my scanned version...


Happy Birthday Pomme! 22 Feb 2006

Happy Birthday to my dear friend, Pomme ~ someone who should really have a blog because she is so cool & interesting. See how her outfit (below, Pomme on the right) is MUCH cooler than mine. Even when we were small people, she knew how to dress...
