More pink art...

Following my post a week or so ago, I did a little digging to find some pink poster art.

I didn't find the Forever poster, but I did come across artist Cheryl Wasilow from Allentown, Pa. and her lovely abstract art on Etsy. I love these pieces. Bright colors and good composition.

Bright and cheery.  Love this pink piece!

Pretty Clogs

Happy Monday!

Bright, fun clogs from Where were these when I was trying to find Dansko alternatives! These are great if you can take a bit of a heel. Great holiday gift. I think I might add the pink pair to my Christmas list.

I don't know about you but I am strategizing how to stay warm this winter and also love what I'm wearing at the same time. I can see myself wearing these with cozy socks this winter when there isn't snow on the ground!

Small space inspiration for the weekend...

Specifically for the books right underneath the ceiling. I also love the poster in the background.....I've seen this in other places and have searched for it. Never found it...if anyone knows!

I can't believe it's November btw. Enjoy one of the last Fall weekend's...cold weather is upon us!

The Starburst Mirror Round-up

Here's the high, low and medium of the ultra cool sunburst mirror. I'm drawn to these lately. I just recommended a starburst to a friend who is re-designing her living room. 

I can see these above fireplaces, above entry-way tables and above a high headboard. 

The $447.00 Horchow Starburst wins my vote. Very sheek. My favorite.


And then the $19.99 IKEA special -  Figgjo Mirror. Not exactly the same look but might work in the right spot.

The Ballard Design Susanne Kasler Sunburst Mirror $99. I like this one too. Not as glitzy as the first but the price is great.

Thinking about my bedroom...

My bedroom is the most neglected rooms in my house. It's forever on the back burner. I do think about how I want to style it all the time though. I just haven't had a second to make some lists and start the process. 

I saw this bedroom photo today and plucked it for inspiration.  I love how undecorated it looks but still feels balanced, calm and pulled together.  This is not an expensive room ..this look could be easily achieved by copying the color scheme in the artwork, buying a few modern side tables/lamp, and white bed linens. The pendant, IKEA, easily. Nothing fancy here, but a serene, happy space for sure.

This would make a great Christmas gift for a teenage boy!

Happy Friday!

Sending you off on your weekend with some beautiful photography by Kylli Sparre

I noticed her work on A previous ballet dancer who now merges her love of the human body and movement with photography.

Northern Delights

And oh, are they a delight! I love Scandinavian design.

This book in now at the top of my Christmas list. I love these images already. Right up my alley - simple, clean, minimalist, nature-inspired.

Sorry the images are so small. The book is coming from overseas and doesn't seem wildly popular here yet. Here's a quick write up:

"Northern Delights reveals why hardly any other interior or product design is so timeless, so functional, so aesthetic, and of such high quality as that of Sweden, Norway, Finland, and Denmark. The book’s stunning selection of Scandinavian design ranges from individual products to skillfully staged living spaces. Although it also presents iconic designs, the book focuses on the work of young talents who are consciously building upon local sustainable design traditions and further developing them in a way that is consistent, intelligent, and reflects an unerring sense of style."

I underlined an important part of this passage. Local sustainable design. So important. I am trying to weave these words into my design approach as much as possible. Still exploring how to truly do this but I am just glad it's a concept that's becoming popular.

What about you? What's on the top of your Christmas list?

Japenese inspired bathroom

I love simple, calming, earthy design. And here it is. Natural materials with a splash of color. 

Great post from Japanese inspired bathroom, soaking tub. Notice that this is a relatively small space but it's a great combination of materials and they make it work.
