Totally Inspiring Room (+Blog Love)

I love reading other people’s blogs, especially when the writer’s taste coincides with mine. Such is the case with Delight by Design. I found Blair Friedeman’s blog while (I kid you not!) going down the alphabetical blog links on Pink Wallpaper. I LOVE Delight by Design! Seriously, I didn’t get any further down the link list because I’ve spent the last two days going through all the previous entries. There is so much to inspire!

This is one of my favorite rooms from Blair’s blog:

Seriously, I think I swooned when I saw this! So many of the posts feature gorgeously decorated rooms that it is really hard to tear yourself away from it all. Please check out Blair’s magnificent blog and the designs of Spanish interior decorator Isabel Lopez Quesada. You wont be disappointed!

Have a happy Tuesday everyone!

Courting Summer

For my first post back from my mini break, I’d like to share some gorgeous outdoor spaces that I’ve come across during my surfing sessions.

Some are just really lovely backyards but quite a few are interior courtyards. I adore interior courtyards – they’re are honest to goodness “secret gardens”. Here are a few I’ve found:

I hope you’re having a beautiful, sunny Tuesday!

Comfortable Chic

I may have mentioned that I’m not the fashionista type a few posts ago. I wasn’t kidding. I’m totally not being falsely modest or anything. I’m a woman so I love clothes, shoes, and handbags as much as I’m supposed to… I just don’t wear what I like as much as I’d like. I kind of convince myself, on a daily, that it is OK to wear jeans and a tee… again. I’m really hoping to change that going forward. My last couple of clothing purchases have been dresses and skirts. Girly could quite possibly become my new uniform. Here is an outfit that totally embodies my taste – a little Bohemian, a little classic, absolutely comfortable, and simply chic.
