Strange Librarian…

I totally admit that this is out of left field. To be honest I was planning on going in a different direction when I started playing around with the Etsy Treasury tool… but that green scarf had “crazy, scary, sexy librarian” written all over it and the rest is Etsy Treasury gold. Well, I think so anyway!

My inner Halloweenista has stepped out into the October night!

Prelude to Halloween? Maybe… Could just be insomnia. Check out the treasury and tell me what you think. Until next time!

Totally Inspiring Room

The living room of Anna and Caroline Burke in Lonny Mag March April 2012.

Just a quickie post. This is one of my recent faves from Lonny Mag. I hope you all are having a wonderful week! Until next time!

Totally Inspiring Room

Nadja Swarovski’s London living room (2006).

This is the living room of Nadja Swarovski’s London apartment (c. 2006). It was featured in Elle Decor and instantly became one of my favorite rooms. Some of the standout details for me are the trellis molding on the ceiling, the creamy bettered with their rose red pillows, and the monolithic black lacquer coffee table floating on the beautiful carpet. It’s the perfect mix of modern and traditional elegance, don’t you think?

Billy Bikini Sandal – $57 at Isabel Toledo for Payless, Necco Enameled Rope Necklace – $172 at Shopstyle, Plaited Leather Shopper – $149 at Zara.

So here is yet another attempt at fashion… I think I did a better job this time. I’m kind of old school in that I think there is nothing inherently wrong with matching. So, lots of black to punch up the off white and coral combo. Btw, Zara… Wow! And Threadsence, Asos, and Topshop too!

Happy Friday, readers!

I’m loving this fresh and sophisticated color combination right now! It just pops and announces that spring and summer are on the way. Amid the photos above (all from Pinterest) are new fashions from J. Crew, art from Laurie Rollit, colorblocked pillows, a pinstripe cake and other fun and infectiously colored items.

More inspiration from Pinterest: this color inspiration board from Jessica Tierney Designs (image via Noa Noa) is a sweet and sexy example of this stellar combo.

Holly Penikas shared this colorful sign… a little kitschy but again, I love the color combination. This just proves that it really is a timeless combo.

It could also be great as a bold choice for a girl’s bedroom…

The just right pops of color to keep a library from being just a dull reading room:

I saw this room while I was surfing Pinterest. I followed the links to La Dolce Vita’s blog where it was shown as part of the This Or That feature. The home office belongs to Lauren Gold of Nate Berkus Associates and was featured in the July/August issue of Lonny last summer. The whole apartment is amazing but this office just… Wow! Right?

I’m off to work now. I’m trying my hand at fashion tomorrow. You’ll have to let me know if I’m hopeless with that. 🙂 Have a happy Tuesday, everyone!
