Fun Finds

Are you a bookworm?

I don’t read as much these days (I’m still trying to finish Ferber’s book about sleep!), but was a proud Scholastic book club member growing up.  It started with the Bernstein bears, but transitioned into the Bronte sisters over the years.  I bought and borrowed many books, but usually read them at home.  If I was in one of these libraries though, I would have stayed at the library.  Franck Bohbot captured quite a few libraries in his series “House of Books”.  These libraries just speak to my design and bookworm loving sides.  They are simply stunning spaces and ones where you really can get lost in the details!

What kinds of prints do you like in your wardrobe and home?

Stripes of course are a classic pattern.  Chevron or Greek key are also great for the home.  But what are the more fun prints?  Lately, I’ve been seeing more kiss or lips prints and was reminded of how fun a simple smooch can be. I also love how they can go from whimsical (like the Kate Spade clutch) to a little edgy (a la DVF).

Here are a few favorite kisses I came across:

Decor Thoughts: Black and gray via Maison Hand

Black and gray Maison Hand design kitchen- saved by little luxury list

Winter always gets me thinking about gray. Gray can signify the muted sky during a cold day and can naturally signify sad times.  But it can also represent a sense of being open and neutral, especially when you see it indoors.  I’ve been lusting for a gray bedroom for years now (it will have to wait […]
