sunday & enter lightly

i've always loved david gray. i find his voice stirring, almost rather haunting, but in a positive & emotional way. i'm dancing around the house to new music from david today...have a listen, & enjoy!

have a great weekend!

it's the middle of january, how are you doing?!
i have to admit, i'm surviving the winter months pretty easily this year, not sure why but the lack of snow helps. i've run outside twice in shorts this month (in new england?!) but i'll take it. ;) i hope that you are all getting outside, being adventurous and plugging along through the rather dull winter months in some fun way!

what are you up to this weekend? speaking of running, i need to spruce up my running wardrobe this weekend, shoes, pants...all getting worn. & i just picked up this book, (in the mood for a good story), can't wait to start it. in between that you'll find me sipping red wine and checking out this as a possible new series to follow. i hope that wherever you go, whatever you do, your weekend is amazing!

and it's friday, so some fun finds from around the world wide web:

a great roundup of beautiful velvet furniture.

sick of seeing donald trump? try this app. made me laugh.

the prettiest perfume bottle. and with an "overwhelming addictive intensity of female sexual power"? um, yes please... (read her review of it here.)

this. whole. house. is. beautiful.

these woven glass pendant lamps
are stunning.


still looking for a really great new book for 2017? they have a ton of recommendations...

for next summer, this ruffled dress, just wow.

this ribbon staircase is pretty amazing, but would totally freak me out.

a fabulous kickstarter project. (especially if you like artist shepard fairey!).

these look yummy. i mean "flaky little loaves of herby savory glory"? yes please...

whoah, this textile pattern would make for wow chair fabric. this would too!

pretty and pretty wild, textile vases.

and i know we aren't even to this coming summer yet, but i'm absolutely LOVING this pre-fall 2017 line.

and speaking of summer, a fun one piece bathing suit.

just a sweet chair with pretty lines.

and half finished houses? a pretty cool concept.

to world's end, again

i'm someone who likes to be outside, alot. i run almost every day, and to get through the winter in new england, getting outdoors, looking out, looking up, being active, being still, is all it takes to rejuvenate & inspire me.

one of my favorite places to go is on the coast of massachusetts, to world's end. i went the other day and thought i'd share a few photos, in case you are interested...
how do you recharge or renew on days where you feel inspiration or energy is low? i'd love to hear. hope that you are having a great day today! enjoy...

new leif love

do you check in on leif as often as i do? i absolutely love alot of what they offer, from little home accessories to great gift ideas, their product line is always vibrant and fresh. i wanted to share a few new fab favorites...
just for fun! (i love the "you're weird card", right?!) enjoy...

wishing for: color block cushions

currently craving an entire house filled these hand printed color block pillows offered up by ferm living...
i want one of each! enjoy...

color palette inspiration

as the new year begins, i'm finding inspiration in a variety of color palettes, but color, color & more color (which is pretty new feeling for me). this smoky pastel palette inspires me today, the photography, the makeup, the sweet softness of it all...
where are you finding inspiration these days? i'd love to hear! enjoy!

eclectic new furniture love

i catalog alot of new to me furniture finds. and at times i save a special place in my files for designers who push the boundaries, ever so slightly, or ok, sometimes they really test the typical in design (which i LOVE). i thought i'd share a few fun new finds, in case you are in the market for a particular or unusual wow piece for your residential or commercial space...
just for fun...enjoy!
