Hardware Store Necklace

While on vacation this past week in the mountains I used the opportunity of having limited supplies to make this necklace using only what I could get at the local hardware store. I bought a variety of chains and several neon spray paint colors - after each chain was painted I cut to length, looped the ends together on a carabiner and voila!

Festive Lights

Since I've been coerced into not having a christmas tree this year... I've been looking for fun and easy ways to make our place feel more festive. Simple white lights around a mirror like this one really seem to do the trick - I think I might try it out! What are your ways of making your home feel festive and warm for the holidays?!

White Brick Mediterranean

Totally in love with this 1920's Mediterranean-style home by Jessica Helgerson. The rustic feel with pops of bright pink, orange, and blue are stunning. And that coffee table is amazing! I just love everything about this home.

Rack Wall Display

For some time now, I have been thinking about and designing in my head (is that the same as thinking?) wall decor for the largest bare wall in our bedroom. Actually, all our walls are bare - but this one is the largest and directly across from our headboard - just perfect for a large display like this one. What do you think? Is it too much for the bedroom? I love how cute the shoes and magazines look. And it seems so easily changeable for when the mood suits you differently... I think I might try something similar!

Pink Striped Clutch

I use a black "money bag" clutch from American Apparel almost every day and decided to make a similar one with a little bit more pizazz. So I sewed up this tan bag and added the painted neon pink stripes to add such a fun pop of color! What do you think?!

Cement Stairs

Just love these floating cement stairs.


Botanical Prints

These vintage prints on old book pages from the Etsy shop FauxKiss are really something else. A series would look great on a wall!

These textures are amazing! Really digging the laid back vibe of all these looks from Set for Spring 2012.

Sunset Stripe

The styling in this room is just perfect. I love the couch, the owl, the radio, and I am especially loving this Pendleton blanket exclusively for Urban Outfitters.

p.s. other Pendleton favorites here.

My Cape

Remember This Cape? Well, I loved it so much I was inspired to make my own! What do you think?! Made from wool and organic cotton - this truly is the perfect outerwear for fall and winter in the mountains. It's so comfy and warm ... I am so in love with it!

The Rolston Geo

I simply love this bag from Shelter. The triangle pattern on top just pops to perfection on the otherwise neutral canvas pack.

Holiday Drink with PomPoms

Don't these drinks with those sparkly pom-pom swizzle sticks look super festive and delicious!? Makes me want to throw a party!

All White

I'm a girl that loves a lot of color... but these all white rooms are really great. I love the white chairs and the minimal black accents.

Style in Spades

The story of Kate and Andy Spade has always fascinated and inspired me. This recent article in Matchbook Magazine had photos not unlike I've seen before of their apartment - but what struck me most about this particular photo series was the way they store and display books so fabulously.

I feel a book reorganization and decoration project coming on!

p.s. A couple of years ago I had the privilege of hearing Andy Spade speak at Stanford, after which he joined me and a small group of friends for a few drinks. It was truly an overwhelming inspiring evening.

I can't get these chunky chains from the Kelly Wearstler jewelry collection off my mind. Particularly in love with the Rose Pyramid Necklace. And to wear all of these at one time would just be devine - but to have just one in my closet would be fab-u-lous!

Casa de Lacasa

This Madrid apartment belonging to stylist Jamie Lacasa is so dreamy! I love the open space filled with rustic furniture and bright color pops. I'm just crazy about that blue floor-to-ceiling bookshelf!!

Thanks for sharing Colleen :)

Black and Tan

Really digging these black and tan sweaters. Which one is your favorite?

Red Lips

I've never quite had the complexion for bright red lipsticks, have bought many shades and put them on, only to quickly wipe away. But I love how amazing it looks - especially when in such stark contrast with her bright white blonde hair. Maybe someday I'll get the courage to try it again - and not for a halloween costume.
