the small details...


I read and posted about Harmonie Intérieure a few months ago via Poppy...and just revisited their incredible site. Decals are everywhere these days but this French company showcases them so beautifully...the images, photography, styling...all the details are just right. The photos of the decals themselves are frame-worthy.

I posted about the gorgeous work of textile designer and stylist Carolyn Quartermaine last year and was thrilled to see a peak into her home in the newest issue of Vogue Living {Australia}. Here's a tiny bit from the story I wanted to share with you.

fun in the sun


Wow...a long weekend away really does do something for your mental state of being...it's amazing. After returning from the beach yesterday, now I understand why everyone's been going "down the shore" all these years! Here's a great beach photo (and desktop wallpaper) by Keiko of Nordljus I wanted to share with you as I get ready for the week ahead and take in my healthier colored skin...

happy friday + summer in the city


I'm off to Rehoboth Beach in Delaware for a long weekend at the beach with college friends. Despite the fact that I'll be basking in the sun and ocean breeze, I love this summer city print by Nate Duval. Happy weekend!

There's something about this geometric primary-colored print I really love...from Mociun's fall 08 collection...
