rainy days and mondays. oh, & current favorites.

this wallpaper makes me happy. it's "lacework" by graham and brown, via burke decor. this wallpaper design comes in a variety of tones too! trouble is, which room to add it to? hmmmm.....

over the weekend, i roamed around my yard looking for colorful blooms to pick for an in~home, hand~picked arrangement. none to be found. end of summer nearing i suppose. so, instead, i went for an arrangement of greens and i am surrounded by gobs of brilliant, green ferns. so, now i desperately want a fern pillow or two, offered up from flutter. don't you? :)

i think this off~angled book case, designed by philippe nigro via nest, is super intriguing! how fun, filled with all of your favorite books, magazines and treasures ;)

in the sea of ho~hum phone covers, this woven vinyl fiber cover by chilewich is a refreshing choice. via relish.

how fabulous are these red heart coat hooks from rockett st. george? they are fun and flirty and again, remind us all to not take designing so seriously. we all need that!

with the busy summer surrounding me, i'm drawn to quiet spaces, like this wonderful leather lounge to stretch out and read, or cat nap! via rum magazine.

i just bought a necklace similar to this, except the colors were much lighter, pastels in fact. now i need this grey "twig" necklace from spool no. 72 for fall. seriously i do!

coveting these hand~tufted rose rugs from anna charlotte. i want a whole bouquet!

it's raining, obviously cloudy and grey on my day off today...but a good day to hit book stores, drink coffee in the afternoon (even if i don't need one, but just want one:), peruse through design mags & books to inspire new concepts and ideas. my son has the week off too, before school starts, so we are headed out together ;) enjoy your rainy or not~so~rainy~monday!
