cheers to the weekend!

it's really feeling like fall, as if the change has occurred almost overnight! are you up to anything fun & exciting this weekend?
i'm starting this book, this weekend (ny times review) can't wait. i have also been in a perfume slump, hardly wearing any for the last few years as everything is starting to smell the same to me. unexpectedly someone i know share this with me and i actually really liked it. never saw that coming.

i'm hoping to get in more outdoor runs (this is exceptional running weather), get creative with some home made pizza making this weekend and look for a new t.v. series to sink my chops into. i hope that your weekend is everything that you want it to be! and it's friday, so some fun finds from around the world wide web:

loving these carved pill bowls.

super pretty patent leather boots for fall.

these are neat too.

céline fall & winter

it started with seeing a pair of ballet flats by céline on pinterest. loving them i had to see more of what céline is offering up for fall & winter and wow on the landscape color palettes from sky blue, to earth browns to corn golds and a range of ochres. and add in all of the differing textural combinations to each look and you have a very confident and remarkable line...
céline's fall & winter line is very layered, almost coated, rather like a landscape. it then and smashes up similar and very unlike color palettes which catches the eye and forces it to agree with the choices made by the designer. pieces are designed utilizing rich textiles and cloths such as leather and suede trenches, then paired with feminine soft, thin, satiny silk slip dresses making for eclectic ensembles.

these were a few of my favorites from the fall & winter céline line, but make your own choices, see so much more here, and enjoy!

random spaces to love today

i could spend time in any of these spaces today. i like them all for so many different reasons (um, that blush pink living room wall?!)...

YEAH! furniture

los angeles based YEAH! furniture (and can we just begin with how cool the name is please?!) is certainly something to get excited about. they claim that they make statement pieces (second cool thing to love) and they do by re-imagining "mid-century modern design with a modern california edge. and maybe that is just perfect in that YEAH! furniture is so perfectly about edges, and line in their design...all utilizing raw materials such as "hardwoods, leather, steel, wool, powdercoat and rope"...
each piece is made in los angeles, it's "livable luxury" as YEAH! furniture states made by a collaborative of uber artistic designers. they beg you to go ahead and dance on the tables, that their line is "designed to wear in, never out." there are so many places and spaces to imagine any one (or all!) of YEAH! furniture's pieces, residential or commercial. super versatile, super cool. enjoy!
